Chart sensation Jessie J has paid tribute to her hero Whitney Houston by performing one of the legendary diva’s iconic hits on French television.

The Price Tag singer delivered a typically flawless rendition of I Wanna Dance With Somebody, which was a worldwide number one hit for the troubled 47-year-old in 1987.

Jessie has been busy promoting Who You Are around Europe for the past couple of weeks following her whirlwind visit to Australia.

Hopefully she jets back to Oz soon – her album climbed into the top 10 this week and her latest single Nobody’s Perfect looks set to follow. It would be a perfect time for her to do a small-scale tour to capitalise on her current popularity.

Watch the British pop star show off her powerhouse vocals below.
