All four judges from this year's The Voice TV talent show have been confirmed for a return on the 2013 edition of the show, despite the fact Jessie J previously wrote in her autobiography that she wouldn't. It's a lady's prerogative to change her mind, after all.
Jessie J, Will.i.am, Tom Jones and Danny O'Donoghue of The Script will all return to the spinning chairs on the BBC show, which launched the careers of Tyler James, Bo Bruce and Leanne Mitchell (the show's winner).
Success has been limited for the show's first class of finalists, with James arguably the most successful to date. His single 'Single Tear' hit No.28 and album A Place I Go peaked at No.36 earlier this year.
Jessie yesterday (13 November, 2013) promised the show would improve greatly on its first series, saying: "I’m so happy to be back as one of the original four for series two. It’s going to be bigger and better this time."
Meanwhile, Tom Jones promised some huge shake-ups on the 2013 series, adding: "I’ve heard there will be some important changes that will make what is already a good, strong show even better."
Leanne Mitchell won the 2012 series of The Voice UK
Earlier this year, a spokesperson for the BBC admitted that the real stars of the show we the spinning chairs - despite the big name stars on the judging panel and performers booked for appearances.
"It’s not rocket science to say the spinning chairs were the best bit," said BBC entertainment chief Mark Lindsey in August.
Jessie J confirmed her return to the show in August of this year, breaking the news to fans on Twitter.
Jessie wrote on 23 August: "I WILL be a coach on the 2nd series of The Voice UK! I'm B B B BACK!"
Adding: "As I have always said. Unless you hear it from me- Don't always believe what you read! Can't wait! #thevoiceuk #weback *fist to the sky*"
