Watch: Jessie J Wows With Whitney Houston’s ‘I Have Nothing’ On Chinese Show

Published: Saturday 20th Jan 2018 by Sam

Jessie J is currently in China and making her presence felt on popular show ‘Singer 2018.’

The competition pits celebrities against one another in a series of week to week sing-offs.

Tapped as the big “international” acquisition, the 29-year-old has been topping the table on each episode – the latest being no different.

And for good reason.

J blew the roof off the studio with a spirited rendition of Whitney Houston‘s ‘I Have Nothing’ – one that wouldn’t have been amiss during last year’s AMAs. But we digress.

Watch the British bred belter soar like only she can below…

Incredible. Like, actually, totally… incredible.

We’re not quite sure what this show is, but if it’s adding to her pool of fans (and compensating her accordingly) then why not.

Our only wonder is what is the plan of attack is with her new music and album ‘R.O.S.E’?

Your thoughts?

    It’s a very popular show with famous Chinese singers every friday on Hunan TV 😉

    I thought she just screamed, but when you listen….this girl can actually sing. Her image that has been marketed as the “white girl sounding black” is totally wrong. Market her in the Old School Celine/Mariah vein. And what her soar…… she is NOT Rnb and that’s why she does NOT sell. (Love the weave on her, finally a look she soars on)

      My thoughts exactly ,she legit slayed it like SLAYED that performance.She has vocals give her the songs that showcase it I like that with her new album ROSE she has more stripped back songs but I don’t think that rnb land is doing her justice

    Wow 😮 And haterz hate on this girl… True singers, with talent – despite all the vocal acrobatics and runs – can strip it down, and sing a pure vocal with clairity of voice like this.

    Gaga did it with The Sound of Music, Sevyn did it with her live Whitney cover, hell even Fergie beasted it live with ‘Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas’ – these singers are for real with no smoke and mirrors. Some many of these children today – could never.

    I need Christina to come through wit this clarity of voice – sadly, I don’t think she can anymore. No shade. 😞

      Christina did this kind of vocal on My Reflection. She refuses to sing without all the dramatic tones and do a Straight vocal. I wonder why…………………………

    Sam, a quick Google search would have explained to you what this show is about. It is a very popular Chinese TV show where professional singers compete against each other. I believe Jessie J is the first Western singer to compete

    No One BETTER live than JessieJ !!! I’m Glad even More of the World is finding out how amazing she is.

  7. KeepingR&BAlivewithMiss J January 20, 2018

    Absolutely STUNNING ….. I miss Whitney so much after that performance I’m deffo in my feelings. Great Job Miss Jessie J !!!

  8. Liam January 20, 2018

    I always tell people she’s underrated vocalist…she’s a very technical vocal beast who don’t get her dues and her last album Sweet Talker was really good. Can’t wait for the new album Queen is still my mess tho

  9. Meteorite January 20, 2018

    Not impressed but to each their own

    • AI January 20, 2018

      Must be a Christina fan lol

    • Haters Gon’ Hate January 20, 2018

      And what exactly were you not impressed with? 🧐 Her weave? Heel height? Earring size? If you know anything about what singing is – you’ll know she nailed this, technically, stylistically and stage presence wise. Everyone is always saying she over does her runs on her own tracks but out of respect she didn’t make this song about her – she let the original arrangement shine and moved people in the process.

      • Xtina4ever January 20, 2018

        Exactly I wasn’t impressed really theirs a reason they didnt ask Jessie j to do the tribute she doesn’t have it.

  10. DanYiel Iman January 20, 2018

    Totally gifted sanger!!

  11. Queenshade January 20, 2018

    Shady b**** wants to keep performing this song to show she can do better than Christina cuz “Whitney was flawless” comment ….. b**** no one is checking for your music now so have a seat cuz China don’t want u either …. come for the Xtina and u will be shut down … in 10 Years the only song ppl will remember u as is price tag …. and b**** ur in the clearance section

    • Fancy BISH January 20, 2018

      Not the clearance section chile lmao

  12. Xtina4ever January 20, 2018

    Lmao really I’m sorry but I rather listen to christina sing this song. Jessie j her voice I like but theirs nothing special about it and gets on my nerves the way she sings. Xtina is still better even when she messes up lol.

  13. Teflon Boy January 20, 2018

    Wow.., Just Wow😳 This was incredible. Despite being a technical beast, Jessie J’s biggest flaw as a singer is her propensity to do way too much. Which is a travesty as no one with as much vocal talent as her should leave you feeling irritated when they open their mouth. However, this stripped approach was everything her voice needed to shine. I can see Jessie J maturing like a fine wine.., less really is more with her.

  14. mr.m January 20, 2018

    that frog face with a bee tone .. so annoying
    she can SAAANG but her tone sucks sorry lol
    that bish shaded xtina’s tribute .. guess what
    I rather listen to her “mess up” version than yours
    xtina got TONE, SOUL and POOOOWER … U CAN’T
    BYE! LOL

    • Haters Gon’ Hate January 20, 2018

      I’m sorry, but real talk, Xtina’s tribute was pitchy and strained like a fat girl wearing a bikini from when she was 4 dress sizes smaller. Xtinas tribute = Issa NO. I fuxx with Xtina but that tribute she did was a struggle like catching pigs covered in baby oil.

  15. eric January 20, 2018

    I’m not really familiar with her, but I like her tone. She added her own originality in some places without ever trying too hard. She easily gets a 10/10 for this performance. It was excellent!

  16. Dev January 20, 2018

    Jessie J just be out here slaying Whitney this week and Toni a few weeks ago. She doesn’t get half of the credit she deserves for her ability to sing.

  17. stan January 21, 2018

    vocals for days

  18. Gregg January 24, 2018

    Im so tired of these chicks singing Whitney’s stuff….sing your own stuff.
