Frontman Danny O'Donoghue tells Capitalfm.com that he would love to interpret her life and reveal he wants a Tom Jones duet.
The Script have confessed that they would love to write a ballad for Jessie J saying how great it would be to "lyrically interpret" where she is in her life right now.
The band's frontman Danny O'Donoghue told Capitalfm.com that he has always shown an interest in working with the 'Domino' singer as well as fellow The Voice coach Sir Tom Jones.
"I've always expressed to either one of them, I would work with Tom or Jessie," he admitted. "I've always said to Jessie 'look if you need a ballad written, come to us. Come to me and mark'.
"I'd love to like interpret lyrically where she is in her life and the same with Tom."
He added: "You can't ever expect to be around Tom Jone and not wanting to duet with him."
Danny recalled one of the strangest moments of his career when he was singing on stage with Tom, Jessie and Will.i.am on The Voice and the legendary star sang one of his own lyrics.
"I was lucky enough as a human being on this planet to have Tom sing a lyric that I wrote. He sung 'Breakeven' and I was like 'wow'. That's like history coming around full circle," he declared. "I was a kid watching him on television.
The 'Hall Of Fame' singer continued: "You never put the two together that something that's going to happen to you in your darkest moment, you write that down, it becomes a massive song, you go on a show and all of a sudden a guy you were watching as a child is singing lyrics that you wrote."

He concluded: "It's just weird, really strange but proves to me the whole ethos of anything can happen in life."
The Irish stars have already teamed up with Will.i.am on their Vodafone Big Top 40 number one single 'Hall Of Fame' and released new album '#3' last week.
The group said the rapper was "blown away" the first time he heard the song before lending his vocal to the track.
