En udda följetong är över – Jessie J vann kinesisk talangjakt

Av någon anledning har vi under våren kunnat följa popstjärnan Jessie J:s framfart i en kinesisk sångtävling. I Am a Singer heter programmet där artister vecka efter vecka tävlar mot varandra, och där Jessie J varit den första och enda västerländska deltagaren. Hon lyftes fram som favorit redan från starten, har inte gjort ett enda felsteg på vägen och efter finalen har hon nu krönts till vinnare.

Hon skriver på Instagram att hon ställde upp eftersom hon älskar att sjunga, ville representera Storbritannien och hjälpa till att överbrygga kulturskillnader: »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 ❤️ Seeing the boundaries break down and the rules be shifted made this whole experience incredible. […] 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.«

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 ❤️ 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! ? 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! ? Last night a billion people watched the show | MAD ✨????❤️

Högtravande ord! Förmodligen fick hon rätt bra betalt också (för att inte tala om exponeringsvärdet i en miljard tittare). Här kan du hursomhelst se några av hennes bejublade framträdanden:
