The 'Who You Are' singer performed a crowd-pleasing set with several special guests at tonight's Capital FM event at London's O2 Arena.
Jessie J surprised the O2 Arena audience tonight (4th December) with several special guests during her closing headline set at this weekend's Capital FM Jingle Bell Ball.
The 23 year-old singer came out on stage dressed in a glittery gold catsuit along with a giant curly black wig to perform her opening number 'Do It Like A Dude'.
Backed by several leather-clad female dancers, Jessie then led the audience through a rendition of recent single 'Who's Laughing Now?' while asking the arena audience to sing the chorus back at her.
"To anyone that has seen me live you know that I'm always honest," Jessie said. "This stage is so big I've already got a stitch!"
Jessie joked that with her Christmas-themed sunglasses and golden attire she should be referred to by her new alter ego: "Tinsel Tina the Christmas Diva".
"I've got my perm out, my Christmas glasses on and I thought I'd throw a party with about 15,000 people!" Jessie declared, before launching into her US single 'Domino'.
The singer then introduced her first special guest of the Jingle Bell Ball, who she described as "probably one of the nicest artists I've ever worked with", as singer-songwriter James Morrison joined her on stage for a joint performance of their single 'Up'.
Jessie gave James a brief hug after their duet before joking with the crowd she had asked him to dress up as a Christmas tree but "he wasn't having any of it".
"You have no idea how it feels for me to wake up after 12 months and be doing this, performing shows I never thought I would do," Jessie explained. "My career has escalated like crazy and it's all thanks to you.
"I won't pretend to be anything but a 23 year-old girl who makes mistakes. And you guys have allowed me to be this."
Jessie then gave an emotional performance of 'Who You Are', claiming it was "probably the most special song I've ever written and ever will', after which she shed a few tears in front of the sold-out crowd.
After leading the crowd through third single 'Nobody's Perfect', Jessie returned to the stage dressed as a Christmas cracker for her final track of the evening.
Jessie was joined by several dancers dressed as Christmas trees before introducing special guest Wretch 32 on stage for a rousing performance of 'Price Tag' to end the Jingle Bell Ball with a shower of red confetti.
Jessie J's Jingle Bell Ball set list was:
'Do It Like A Dude'
