The 'Domino' singer says she will be a firm coach when she joins the judging panel of the new music talent contest in 2012.

Jessie J has promised to ban contestant sob stories when she starts her role as a vocal coach on BBC's The Voice next year.

The 'Price Tag' singer was the first mentor confirmed for the new music talent series back at the start of October, and claims she will be a "hard" judge on the show.

"No one wants to know if you have a sore throat," Jessie told The Sun. "That's how hard I am going to be on the contestants."

The singer also gave her approval to The X Factor girl group Little Mix, who she described as "cool girls", ahead of the rival show's final this coming weekend.

On Friday (2nd December) it was confirmed that Black Eyed Peas frontman will join Jessie as one of the show's four vocal coaches.

Jessie J headlined the Capital FM Jingle Bell Ball on Sunday (4th December) where she entertained the O2 Arena with performances from her debut album 'Who You Are'.

The Voice will be hosted by Holly Willboughby and Reggie Yates and is due to launch on BBC1 in spring 2012.
