British babe Jessie J is one of those artists who is easy to love. Jessie combines powerhouse vocals that could overpower the likes of Aguilera or her recent collaborator, Ariana Grande, with British cheekiness and style to create her own brand of pop. Loved in the UK, having even served as a judge on The Voice UK, she has also won over American crowds with hits like “Price Tag” and her recent VMA performance of “Bang Bang” with Grande and Nicki Minaj. Even if she’s not on your radar, those lucky enough to catch this sold out show will see why this singer was chosen to perform at the Olympics and was the first British singer to have six top 10 hits off one album.
