Jessie J Wins X-Factor-Style Show In China
Singer Jessie J has only gone and won China's version of the X Factor.
The 30-year-old singer was asked to be the first international contestant on the show called Singer which usually consists of established singers and artists from across Asia.
Jessie performed on the show every week and even performed some of her own hit singles such as Domino as well as cover songs including Whitney Houston's I Will Always Love You which she performed at the final over the weekend.
She said she decided to take part in the show to bridge a gap between two cultures. She confessed that she competed because she wanted to do something new.
Taking to Instagram, the singer said "I said yes because I LOVE to do the unexpected and I LOVE to represent the UK and singing everywhere I go. I LOVE to sing. But also it was an opportunity to bridge a gap between two cultures. for them to see a western performer and hear music some had never heard before and vice versa."
Jessie won the competition over the weekend with one billion viewers tuning in to see who would be crowned the winner.
She will release her new album R.O.S.E. later this year.
