[GIG REVIEW+VIDEO] Jessie J Live @ Scala, Kings Cross 17/01/11 by wearesme

Last night, SME and the entourage had the pleasure of seeing Jessie J’s live show at Scala in Kings Cross and with it, celebrate her Number 2 single in this weeks chart.

Getting straight to the point; Jessie was incredible. Her amazing voice filled the intimate venue, while her charisma and cheeky personality had the crowd in stitches and hanging on her every word.

So often artist (cough*Drake*cough) pad out their sets and only succeed in boring all of those in attendance. However, with Jessie we were not only treated to a vocal masterclass, but at times a stand-up comedy set. The girl is hilarious! And the best part is that it’s all completely genuine because she was born to perform.

She opened the set with Mama Knows Best and followed with Stand Up, Nobody’s Perfect, L.O.V.E and Who’s Laughing Now.

The highlight of the night however, was Jessie’s performance of Big White Room; the first track she ever wrote.
She announced that while recording her album, the perfection for which she aims has thus far eluded her on every recording of this song which means so much to her. “It’s just never felt right” she said.
So, we were treated to something very special. The beautiful performance which was about to follow, would be the final recording of the song and will feature on her album.

At her request, the crowd were silent and she gave a flawless rendition which drew goosebumps all around. Watch the performance below:

This was followed by a special appearance from our favourite Essex boy Devlin who took to the stage to perform their new single ‘Price Tag’.



Jessie got so excited she ducked out off stage early but soon returned announcing that she had forgotten our personal favourite ‘Who You Are’. Thank God for that!
Before the song she gave a heartfelt speech on her struggle with the music industry and how she contemplated quitting the industry because in her words “she wasn’t gonna stand next to some stupid rapper in a bikini” haha. And the underlying message was that in life, no matter what, you should always be true to yourself. Here here.

She left the stage, but naturally we wanted more. And she duly obliged. Coming back to finish the night with her big hit ‘Do It Like A Dude’.

After the gig our boy Scout said she was up there with Beyonce in terms of both vocal ability and we’d be inclined to agree. What a talent.

Love, the Heartbeats.
