    She can sang…
    wrong material…
    great example of the right girl born into the wrong decade!
    If this was the 90ies she would be a mega star!
    She is talented , tasteful and skilled!
    She is young and oversings every song live…
    which shows her good inetntions and ambition BUT
    She needs a better team and new executive producer…
    THIS IS GOING NOWHERE FAR!

    @Fa, I agree. I love her voice but she is a serial over singer. It’s not that because she’s young or new to the game though. Plenty of seasoned veterans are over singers. Celine Dion, Beyonce, Patti Labelle all ham it on too hard. They can’t hold back and be subtle. It’s like every note’s gotta be a sledgehammer. It’s ok sometimes but not all the time and like with all those singers Jessie has over sung on every performance.

    I love Jessie a lot, but she was off-key for most of this performance. And I agree, she needs a better team if she wants to make it big in America too. Something about her just isn’t connecting with most of the country or else should would be huge by now.

    she oversings too much… she’s been sucked into the commercial machine she needs to go back to the real thing, that’s when she was on top of her game.

    smh wow @Fa I appreciate you thoughts but I wonder if you ever noticee what separates greats from average. It’s this same thought that was told to people like Gaga. They will never get you at a time like this; however, she pushed on. Jessie J is doing exactly what she needs to at a time where everybody is hopping on the trendy train. She stands out from the rest and has true talent and seems to have the drive needed to move up ranks. What often happens to those who dare to be different is they quit because of comments like yours. What the industry needs is artist who are in the business of creating and not being afraid to be different. Too many clones and those trying to recreate what Bey and Gagg and Ri are doing. If Jessie sticks with her brand and continues to grow with every album, she’ll be one mention among the tops. I BET!

    You guys are talking utter RUBBISH!!!!!!

    Jessie J slayed and she is a TRUE artist. When she sings, she sings from the heart. She is in her own lane so pay respect.
    @corecyobrown co-sign everything you said.
    At times people can be backwards. People want beyonce/lady gaga/Rihanna clones but when they are given people like Nicole Scherzinger or Shontelle they complain that there are wannabes.
    Jessie J is doing something different and with a meaning. She will be here for a long time because
    1) She can SING
    2)She writes her own music
    3)She sings about REAL emotions
    4)She knows who she is.

    I bet in a years time She will turn all you naysayers into believers.

    Thank you Rap-Up for supporting REAL TALENT!

    @Regina G,

    maybe you should do a little research. Jessie is already a HUGE global star. Know what you’re saying before you speak.

    @Treyy, Her record label would like you to think that by booking her to perform at all of these shows, but the fact of the matter is that her album was only $8 in the US and those sales were weak.
