Jessie J speaks out about children on Britain's Got TalentFirst Bruce Forsyth had a pop and now Jessie J has entered into the row over children appearing on shows like Britain’s Got Talent.

The Voice judge and singer has said that she thinks it should be illegal for young children to auditions for talent shows.

Jessie, 25, said: ‘I cannot agree with kids having to go through three or four auditions when it’s purely for ridicule. I don’t understand why it’s legal, I think it’s wrong. I watched BGT auditions and there are these kids getting laughed at by the audience, I’m like, ‘Woah, why?’ I get very uncomfortable seeing young kids on stage because I know what it’s like. I know however much greatness there is in this world, there are also a lot of mean people behind computers. Children need to be children.’

Her comments come just a few days after Bruce said he thought it would be ‘disastourous’ for a young child to appear on BGT.

Watch the Britain’s Got Talent final this Saturday on ITV at 7:30pm.
