Prior to Jessie J. competing on Singer, I had never heard of it. Now that I have, I have to say I’m kinda obsessed with the Chinese TV singing competition. Not only with Jessie’s performances, but I’ve enjoyed a few of the other contestants as well. With that being said, I’m still rooting for Jessie to win the entire thing.
During the latest episode, the 29-year-old British singer took on an R&B classic. She belted out “Killing Me Softly With His Song” and did so spectacularly. Instead of doing the Fugees 1996 hip-hop version, she decided to channel Roberta Flack’s 1973 arrangement. Naturally, Jessie threw in a few of her signature runs to make it her own. If she doesn’t place first for the fourth straight week, I’d be shocked.
