J announced her involvement with The Voice on the Chris Moyles Show on Radio 1 yesterday. "One of the reasons that I love it is because it is a coach," she told Moyles. "This is the first talent show that focuses on what really matters when you're a singer. It's all about the voice. It's not telling someone whether they're good or not. It's helping them find their voice and who they are and making it something that they could give to the world."
