The X Factor USA: Who is Jessie J?

You may remember Jessie J from the MTV VMAs this year — she was the one with the cast who was forced to sit in a giant throne and play the commercial breaks in and out from a side stage with a band the whole night.

Um, we're pretty sure she was scheduled to perform for real but obviously broke her leg and had to be benched. Whoops.

Well, this week on The X Factor, the British chanteuse will perform standing upright! Willow Smith is guest performer #1 on Thursday's results show, and she'll be singing "Fireball". Jessie take the stage herself later, performing "Domino," the follow up single to "Price Tag," off her debut album.

Hilariously enough, Jessie was just heard talking smack to the papers about the British version of The X Factor. She refused to appear on her home country's incarnation of the show, calling it "bitchy," but has no qualms gracing the American stage. Is Simon nicer on this side of the pond?

Fun Fact #1: She has agreed to be a judge/mentor on the UK version of The Voice starting up next season.

Fun Fact #2: Jessie J and charts rival Adele are old school chums!
