We're not quite sure what possessed Jessie J to head over to China and take part in their equivalent of X Factor, but she did, and she's only gone and won.

The former Voice judge took part in a reality series called SINGER, which saw her compete against other professional artists. Jessie J is the first contestant from outside of Asia to be crowned winner of the competition, but then she's also the only international singer to ever take part.

The English singer left her mark early on in the show though with her stirring rendition of Whitney Houston's I Will Always Love You and over the weekend, a billion viewers watched her win.

Taking to Instagram after, Jessie said that the reality show was "an opportunity to bridge a gap between two cultures" and that she has "never been made to feel more welcomed and loved".

Yeah that and $$$.

Here she is winning... it would be almost emotional if it wasn't so random. 


Last year I was asked to compete in a singing competition in China. Performing alongside the biggest established singers / artists across Asia. I was the first international artist to ever be asked / compete. An honour alone. I know a lot of people were shocked when they found out. Like why would I compete in a singing competition... I’m probably the least competitive person I know. I said yes because I LOVE to do the unexpected and I LOVE to represent the UK and singing everywhere I go. I LOVE to sing. But also it was an opportunity to bridge a gap between two cultures. For them to see a western performer and hear music some had never heard before and visa versa. For the performances to be seen by millions outside of China and visa versa. And those people to discover the show was the best part. The respect being shown for both cultures and the love was âÂÂÂ?¤ï¸ÂÂÂ? Seeing the boundaries break down and the rules be shifted made this whole experience incredible. China is an amazing place and so different to anywhere I have ever been. I have never been made to feel more welcomed and loved as I have done here. My team and I have been in China for 3.5 months. It’s been an amazing learning experience for all of us! We worked hard! THANK YOU! I love you all! ðŸ'« I won the show last night. But what we all won was the beginning of something really magical. I am so happy I got to play a part. Here is to me being the first but not the last international artist to be on SINGER. And for the boundaries to continue to be broken. I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU! I still cant believe I came 1st! ðŸÂÂÂ?† Last night a billion people watched the show | MAD ✨😭ðŸ™ÂÂÂ?ðŸÂÂÂ?»ðŸŒ¹âÂÂÂ?¤ï¸ÂÂÂ?
