Jessie J is saying good-bye to "The Voice."  The British songwriter-turned-performer announced her exit from the U.K. version of the show on Twitter on Friday, writing that after two seasons as a coach, she's decided that her new album "has to take priority." 

She adds that she "absolutely loved" her time there, and will continue to watch and support the show in the future. 

The future of its other three judges, Tom Jones and Danny O'Donoghue is still uncertain.  With Jessie's departure, the BBC is reportedly already on the hunt for another female singer to replace her. 

Sources tell "The Mirror" that Rita Ora, Emeli Sande and Paloma Faith are among the names at the top of the competition show's wish list.
