The 22-year-old British singer shared the stage with B.o.B to perform their hit song “Price Tag,” and later in the show, Jessie let loose for an amazing rendition of “Mama Knows Best”!

“I am so in a space of ‘omg wow’ right now. I’m the first artist to ever be booked on SNL before having a album out. Thank you for believing in me :) USA I’m coming for ya,” Jessie tweeted early this morning.

@Sunday Girl:

You act as if she didn’t work for what she got.

I’m so happy, Real Talent lol.
I love her music.

my first exposure to her and it’s obvious that she’s a HUGE talent. I hope she makes great music and moves forward without lots of drama. Bravo…and congrats to SNL for booking her.

@Nottafan: you would’ve said the same thing about Janis Joplin. She obviously has range, she’s controlling it based on the song (not everyone needs to hit every note under the sun in one song). Clearly, you have no idea what vocal style and real singing is about. Stick with Christina Aguellera, Katie Perry and Britney Spears.

@Sean:
Pretentious how? @Kaz simply Amaazing !!!!!!!!: Average how as in average one of the best vocalists out now average. STFU!!!! stop saying stupid and ignorant **** just for the sake. Jealousy make you ugly

@Nottafan: Clearly u know **** about music. I bet u like Justin bieber. Awww shame!! Jessie J does not want your support anyway.

She is the Brit Chritina Aguilera amazing voice but you already know the deal really I don’t even have to press play. Whitney Houston and Celina Dion (even though I’m not a fan) new how to use their vocals to great effect.

@swoon: I dont understand why people say that. Its called vocal prowess. U dont have to understand it honey. Go listen to Justin Bieber if u want bubble gum pop.

she also wrote “Party in the USA” for Miley Cyrus, so she is not just an amazing singer but a PROVEN hit songwriter as well,

she just needs to control her face movement when she sings, the same with Xtina and others. I think its something to do with having a great voice.

Great to see Jessie J finally getting the props she deserves.

For all those who only listen to music that’s on the radio and thinks she is a “newcomer” who hasn’t proved her salt yet, Jessie J has been an industry secret for awhile now, writing songs for Justin Timberlake, Alicia Keys, etc. In fact, Timberlake called her “the best singer in the world”. Now the public has the proof in the pudding of how talented she is. Her vocals are as stronger than most people – AND she’s not autotuned or relying on a producer to make her sound good in the recording studio! She writes her own music, creates her own beats, and now, finally, sings her own songs. Just sayin’.

(Also, all you teeny boppers might be impressed to know that she wrote Miley Cyrus’ “Party in the USA”.)

For those who say that Jessie J can’t sing, youtube videos of her singing Big White Room at Scala. Raw talent.

She has been a known quantity within the music industry for a very long time. The Moron that said she was anointed like willow smith is seriously uninformed, as are most people when it comes to knowing any real industry story, and the true numbers behind most acts.

She can sing her ass off.

hahahaterrible @ 03/14/2011 at 2:21 pm

hahahaha that was terrible. her fake voice undulations are grating, but at least she dressed up like a *****. hahahahaha terrible.

most amazing singer ive heard in a long time!
she’s just one big WOW!

I love her voice but the way she sings can be annoying. It’s like she’s making fun of herself sometimes with the way she moves and sounds.

Wow – she is something new and different and that song is sooo catchy. she is even appealing to people of an *cough* older generation. Go girl!

@Truth: OMG!! She is no Janis Joplin LMAO. Wash your mouth out with soap for saying that or even puting them and the same sentence that girl had REAL soul that she sang from heart with … With this chick it’s all mental a calculation I wasn’t going to comment but come on this is Laughable a good writer though.

@Sunday Girl:

Hun, just cause YOU didn’t know who she was before this doesn’t mean no one did. Jessie J has been proving herself for years. She’s writen MANY huge hits for well known artists and is an amazing talent. She had songs on two big movie soundtracks last year and she won a Brit award recently. She got on SNL cause she’s good and your opinion that only established people with 5 records should get on SNL is beyond ignorant and shows what you know about musical talent, which is nothing.

Sunday Girl you’re a dumb *****.

She is good yeah… British Christina Aguilera

Check your research dude – she’s been pounding the pavement as a musician and songwriter in the UK for years. Fun fact: she also wrote Party in the U.S.A. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jessie_J

@Sunday Girl:

Love this girl think she’s hyper talented and has overcome adversity. Its nice to see a pop start that shockingly does’nt use drugs or drink! she has a good range and makes very catchy songs and is a talented songwrite unlike other pop wanabee’s!!!
