Worst: Jessie J
Not only did Jessie J have the thankless task as bumper entertainment for much of the show, but the British pop singer was confined mostly to a big plastic chair for much of her TV time, due to a broken foot and a frightful cast. It’s tough to stand out when one can hardly stand up, so instead, she over-sang. It was especially cringe-worthy when she tackled Katy Perry’s “Firework,” the video to which was nominated for several awards and Mrs. Russell Brand is sitting right there, and her warbling on TLC’s “No Scrubs,” which is apparently sung nowhere in her range.
