The 'LaserLight' singer says she want to help the acts by giving them her honest opinion and advice.

Jessie J has taken to Twitter to defend what many described as harsh comments on the battle rounds of The Voice UK last night (12th May), telling fans that "tough love is still love".

The 'Domino' star criticised fellow vocal coach for his act's song choice on Sunday evening's show, as well as giving heavy critique to two of her own acts, and posted a lengthy message on Twitter after the show to defend her stance.

"If I'm not critical, honest and real. What's the point?" she questioned. "You don't survive in this business if you're ok. You have to work hard!

"Remember that teacher that picked at all your mistakes and made you really work on every detail?" Jessie continued. "It's because they cared and saw something special in your.

"There is a thin line between passion, dedication and commitment! I bet that teacher got you a good grade! Made you believe!"

The 'Who You Are' singer went on to say that giving honest criticism to the acts is the best way to help them improve their talents.

"If it means something to you would you want to know why you didn't make it through? Yes," she added. "To better yourself to give it another go!

"If someone tells you are amazing but you don't make it, what are you left to go away with? We are ALL learning every day."

Last week saw Jessie kicking off the teaser campaign for her brand new album, revealing she has already filmed a music video for the lead single and finished the record itself.

Jessie J is expected to announce details of the album's lead single in the coming weeks, before playing the Capital FM Summertime Ball 2013 on 9th June at Wembley Stadium.
