Jessie J WINS China's 'X Factor equivalent' after competing as a CONTESTANT against Asia's top musicians for over three months
She judged hopeful singers on The Voice UK and Australia for four seasons and has had several big hits of her own.
But Jessie J, 30, decided that it was her turn to take part in a singing contest, as she joined Chinese show Singer, the country's X Factor equivalent as a competitor in early January.
The Domino songstress won the competition and gained a whole host of new fans in the process as the final had around one billion viewers.

Competing against other professional musicians, like Taiwanese singer Angela Chang, Jessie was the first Anglo-American to take part in the show.
The raven-haired singer competed on the show every week, and performed her own songs like Flashlight and Domino, as well as a number of cover songs.
But it was her take on Whitney Houston's I Will Always Love You that earned her the top spot, as her powerful vocals and emotional performance won the crowd, and judges, over.
