Are you ready London? Tonight, for Day 22 of the event, it’s Jessie J who is set to grace the world famous Roundhouse stage where many have performed this month as part of the iTunes Festival 2014.

As things begin to wind down we can’t forget the level of talent still set to come to London including Ben Howard, Mary J Blige, Kylie Minogue and Ed Sheeran to name a few.

Tonight though, British singer-songwriter Jessie J will perform to a packed Roundhouse and millions watching around the world from the comfort of their own home.

Since releasing her debut album ‘Who You Are’ back in 2011 Jessie has had an incredible amount of success and will release her third album this year.

‘Sweet Talker’ is set to be released on the 13th of October in the UK and the rest of the world on the 14th of October and is the follow-up to her 2013 album ‘Alive’.

Various artists will make special guest appearances on the album including Ariana Grande, Nicki Minaj and rapper 2 Chainz along with hip hop group De La Soul and violinist Lindsey Stirling.

‘Bang Bang’ was the first single to be lifted from this forthcoming album which featured Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj. The trio released the record on the 29th of July.

James Bay, who has been described as ‘an old soul with a modern twist’ will take to the stage before Jessie J and with a vocal range suiting all genres, it’s sure to be a great performance.
