Jessie J almost quit music

Jessie J has revealed that she once felt like quitting the music industry for good.

After she wowed the crowd on Sunday night's X-Factor with her new single 'Who You Are' she became "emotional".

"I wasn't in a great place when I wrote that song but if I hadn't been in that bad place I wouldn't be able to sing it to people to help them feel better."

The 23-year old recently revealed that she felt like throwing in the towel earlier this year because she didn't like where her music career was heading.

She told The Sun: "I got to a point where I questioned why I was in the music industry. I wasn't happy. I got to a point where I couldn't do it any more and had to have a break.

I am so glad I kept at it as the story behind it is helping and inspiring a lot of people."
