"Simon and I planned to meet and just chat. There wasn’t any pressure,” she said.
“We spoke about the changes in the show, about his goals and aims, and I started to agree with the changes that were gonna happen…. We had a two-hour conversation and I really liked his vision. And on that fact only, I looked at my diary, I spoke to my team because it is a lot of commitment. And having that responsibility of being able to change someone’s life is beyond pressure.
"It gets me emotional because I watch these kids performing in school and they’re already above me for even finishing school… It’s so inspirational, that’s why I do these TV shows."
She continued: "It’s not about thinking, ‘Oh my God, I want to be on TV every Saturday night! I’m a musician, I’ve built this bond with my team, with the music industry. I’ve worked hard to be involved with everything you see my name associated with. It doesn’t happen overnight, and I feel I have as much right to be on that panel as everyone does.”
