The 'Price Tag' star admits she is not afraid to be extremely critical of the show's contestants.

Jessie J has vowed that she will be similar to Simon Cowell when judging contestants on The Voice UK because she is "not scared of being critical".

The 'Who's Laughing Now' star confessed that she likes the harsh and honest nature of the music moguls judging style and is not afraid to say it how it is.

Speaking to the Daily Star, she said: "I may be young but I'm not scared of being critical. I like how Simon Cowell says exactly what he thinks whether people like it or not."

The 'Domino' singer, who takes to the panel alongside Sir Tom Jones, and The Script's Danny O'Donoghue, is also ready for any criticism she faces herself if people don't like what she has to say.

She added: "I don't care if people don't like me and I'm prepared for that. Even if they are on my team that doesn't mean I'm going to say it was good if it wasn't."

Jessie confessed that honesty will be the best policy for her comments during the series because it is what the music industry needs.

"I'm not a robot. I sing out of tune sometimes so I'm not scared to tell some- one else if they have. I'm going to be honest. That’s what the industry needs more of right now."

Meanwhile, the star recently admitted that she wouldn't be heading out on new UK tour again until 2013 as she works on a new album and commits her time to the new talent show.

The Voice UK will air on the BBC next month.
