The X Factor creator Simon Cowell has revealed how he would love to steal Jessie J away from the BBC show The Voice and get her on his show The X Factor. It has even been claimed that he would be willing to pay her three times more than she gets for The Voice.
Cowell explained, "I love that girl. She's one of the best things to come out of British music in years. I want to snap her up. We pinched Alesha. In the grand scheme of things that's fun, that's not being ruthless. It's just evening the score. The BBC always said they are not there to compete, which is a complete load of rubbish.”
He added, "They are the most competitive people I've ever met. I don't dislike them for it but you've got to be honest. They throw everything at Strictly for one reason only, to beat The X Factor, and they are putting The Voice on to compete with Got Talent. It was only right I did something back to them."
However, a BBC insider hit back, "The BBC are so thrilled and happy with landing her. They absolutely love her. She is a brilliant person to draw in a younger audience and the BBC won't take kindly to Simon trying to nick her. She was a brilliant coup for The Voice so Simon had better keep his hands off."
