After judging hopeful contestants on TV talent show The Voice, Jessie J showed exactly what she was made of as she took to the stage to perform at a BlackBerry gig in London. The Do It Like A Dude singer wowed a packed out crowd underneath the capital’s Blackfriars Bridge, which was a difficult venue for an artist to perform in. It was huge and full of arches, which is not the best for sound. Thankfully, her unique voice dominated the venue and even without her distinctive vocals, we loved her stage outfit. We’d have taken notice of her attention-grabbing playsuit even if she came on stage and said nothing!
Before the gig we got the chance to ask Jessie one question. Faced with one of the most interesting women in music right now, with 8 million people hanging onto her every word in on Saturday night TV show The Voice, it was a difficult one but we decided to ask her about her musical inspirations. What other artists are on on Jessie’s iPod?
