Jessie J

Jessie J is the next big female star to be arriving from the UK.
Just one listen and you are hooked.
Jessie J (born Jessica Ellen Cornish, 27 March 1988)is an English singer/songwriter, currently signed to Lava Records, and Universal Republic Records. She was announced as the winner of the BBC Sound of 2011 on 7 January 2011.
She co-wrote the Miley Cyrus hit "Party in the USA" with producer Doctor Luke, and Claude Kelly, as well as writing for Justin Timberlake, Chris Brown (with whom she toured Europe), Alicia Keys and Christina Aguilera. She has been hailed by Timberlake as "the best singer in the world right now".
Jessie J released her single "Do It Like a Dude" in the UK on 21 November 2010; where it was positively received by BBC Radio 1, who added it to their B Playlist. She claimed that she had written the song for Rihanna but decided to release it herself.

I for one feel that this is just the beginning, this young lady is going to be a star.
