Jessie J Singing with Others

     I thought we would check out Jessie J performing with other artists this week. The UK Voice gave her plenty of opportunities so we will have a look at her performances with Will I Am, Danny O'donoghue and Tom Jones also the performance of Nobody's Perfect with Team Jessie member Vince Kidd. She really gave the performance with Vince her best shot. You know many thought she was showing off but I really believed she was trying to give it her best in wanting her new friend and team member Vince to win. It was probably not the right choice of song but hey, Nobody's Perfect and I really believe her heart was with Vince and even Vince has said it was a dream come true to sing with Jessie.

     Our next clip is her hit with James Morrison on his compostion, Up. I think even though this has only been a success in the UK. There is hit potential for other parts of the globe with this! The two of them sound great together! In my opinion this is where Jessie has the edge on other artists. I think James is limited to the ballad side of music but as Jessie keeps saying her music is eclectic and I think she can produce super quality ballads,pop,jazz,rhythm and blues or dance music. What ever she chooses.

     For our final clips this week I want to diverse to the unreleased and tv show side of Jess's career so far. Love the Knock on Wood clip from the Diva's Show with Jennifer Hudson and I have read this again about people not liking her endings because they felt she was trying to impress. Well in my opinion this is not so. She is being herself. She does this sort of ending all the time. She just let's herself go and what you see and hear is the end result and I love it. I just hope she keeps doing it and does'nt change. I am sure she won't! 
     We will take a look at a younger Jess performing with Amplify Dot on Sweetest Feeling. To end it  we will check out Mockingbird by her and her close friend from the Voice Tom Jones. You can see how much they admire each other here and in the last clip of I Gotta Feeling, the first time Tom performed with Jessie. I always smile at the look of amazement on Tom's face with Jessies vocals. The woooh! look on his face! He is impressed!

Jessica Cornish

      I thought for this weeks Jessica Cornish magic. We might take a look at some of her own uploaded videos! One of my favorites would have to be singing Domino while on holidays in Thailand! Just love how its all so natural. Just young girls having fun!

Domino on Holiday in Thailand

She obviously loved listening to Whitney Houston as a child. There is a couple of Whitney covers that she has uploaded so I thought we might have a listen to I Have Nothing!

I Have Nothing 

      I think Big White Room that she does in her LA bathroom would be another great piece of Jessie J magic we can take a look at! A song she wrote when she was seventeen about a childhood experience in the Great Ormond Street Hospital. She was eleven at the time. Jessie recalling the incident in an interview. I woke up in the middle of the night to see this little boy in an adjacent bed praying, and my mother explaining that he was having an operation the next day and was asking God to save him. Jessie continued: "He died the next day so I said to my mum 'but God didn't save him'. I was so angry and it really confused me. It had a strong effect on her so she put the experience into a song!

She went back to Great Ormond Street for the Comedy Gala Charity Show.
