Jessie J wins big at China's X factor-style platform

CHINA: Jessie J’s iconic vocals have earned her another triumph and this time for her participation in a singing competition ‘Singer’, more of an X factor equivalent show in China.

The Anglo-American powerhouse singer won the three and a half month span contest against other professional singers like Taiwanese singer Angela Chang, putting before her cover of Whitney Housten’s “I Will Always Love You” for the finals.

Taking to Instagram, the former ‘The Voice UK and Australia’ judge spoke of her gratitude for being the first international Asian to have won the contest.

'I was the first international artist to ever be asked / compete. An honour alone. I know a lot of people were shocked when they found out,' she wrote.

'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. Seeing the boundaries break down and the rules be shifted made this whole experience incredible.'

The London-based singer cited that her journey at China as popular TV show had brought her recognition to a billion addition – another win-win situation for her upcoming album R.O.S.E releasing later this year.

'China is an amazing place and so different to anywhere I have ever been. I have never been made to feel more welcomed and loved as I have done here. I won the show last night. But what we all won was the beginning of something really magical. I am so happy I got to play a part.'
