British Pop Star Jess Glynne Was Furious With The Singer Who Replaced Her For Performances With Tinie Tempah As She Recovered From Throat Surgery As The Stand-in Fluffed The Lyrics To Her Song.
The Hold My Hand singer underwent an operation to remove a polyp from her vocal cords in June (15) and she spent three weeks resting her voice.
The health crisis hit just days before her single with rapper Tinie Tempah, Not Letting Go, was due for release in the U.K. and she had to drop out of promotional appearances, so the hip-hop star enlisted another singer to replace Jess for performances of the track.
However, Jess was not happy with the stand-in after catching one of their performances on TV, telling Britain's Daily Star newspaper, "I was gutted because I had to cancel all our promo together when my voice went. The hardest part was watching him perform it on TV with another vocalist, because she got the lyrics wrong. I was shouting at the screen. Well, I couldn't actually shout because of doctor's orders, but I wanted to."

The ‘Rather Be’ singer says women ‘get judged more easily’ in the music business.
Singer Jess Glynne has spoken out about the challenges still faced by women in the music industry today. The 26-year-old told the Radio Times that there’s still a double standard when it comes to how men and women are perceived, with an outspoken woman being labelled a 'diva', while a man is thought of as 'tough'.
Jess Glynne says it’s still harder to be a woman in the music industry.
"As a woman I feel it's genuinely harder and I feel you need to stand for something otherwise you get lost,” Glynne said. "Women get judged more easily. A girl can make a fuss and she's a diva but a guy does the same and he's 'tough'. There's a complete double standard.”

The first official announcement for Live At Leeds 2016 is here...
