Will.i.Am seems to have been bowled over by fellow judge Jessie J, and has revealed that he wants to ''make her a star in the U.S.''
The 24-year-old British songstress received the kudos from the Black Eyed Peas singer, who said that he's aiming to push her to new heights.
The 'Domino' singer has already tasted success stateside with performances on Saturday Night Live and a collaboration with American singer B.o.B on 'Price Tag' under her belt.
However it was rapper Will.i.am who had nothing but praise for her.
"Meeting Jessie has inspired me to really go, 'Wow!' Because, she's like that. She's bubbly, she's crazy. She's like raw, edgy. I would love to make her a star in the U.S. She's really fresh... she's dope," he said according to ContactMusic.
Jessie J took to social networking site Twitter earlier this morning to let her fans know that press criticism on herself doesn't affect her, and that she maintains a thick skin. She wrote:
"Sticks and stones may break my bones but bull**** and lies written about me in the media won't hurt me! #justbetruetowhoyouare Goodnight my wonderful positive people :D xx sweet dreaming."
She has been back in the studio recently working on new material, as well as announcing that she is planning to collaborate with her fellow judges from TV show 'The Voice.'
Do you think Jessie has potential to become an international star?
