Jessie J performed her second Manchester show

Saturday night saw Jessie J take to the stage in Manchester for her second show in the city, supported by Olivia Somerlyn and Lawson.

Crowds packed into the recently renamed Phones 4 U Arena, tightly pressed and all eager to get the night started.

Olivia Somerlyn was first to perform, and did a great job of getting the scores of people warmed up. Her fun and catchy lyrics paired with one hell of a voice ensured she wasn't going to be forgotten as soon as she left the stage.

Olivia Somerlyn stunned the crowds

Donning a gold and glistening pair of short shorts matched with eyeshadow of the same colour, she looked stunning as well as sounding fantastic and interacting with the audience who took her to their hearts instantly.

Standout songs 'Only In The Movies' and 'Better With You' should ensure that this rising star's on the radar of music critics everywhere - she's only going one way - up.

Lawson followed with a fantastic set of their hits including latest single 'Juliet' and their first smash 'When She Was Mine'.

The foursome thanked fans for buying their music and making them the success story they are today, before leaving the stage and making way for Jessie herself.

At just four minutes past nine (amazing timing for a popstar today), the lights went down and the star made her presence known.

What followed was a pitch perfect frenzy of hits from her career so far and new songs from her latest album 'Alive', multiple costume changes and admiration for the crowd.

Noticeably tearing up at points throughout her performances, it's clear that this is an artist who doesn't take anything for granted. Jessie knows she's been blessed, and is excited to be sharing this moment with her fans - and best friend Holly - who she sang to during 'Conquer The World'.

Jessie J gets emotional during Manchester show

It's hard to believe that Jessie only smashed onto the scene with 'Do It Like A Dude' three years ago - she has the performance and vocal technique of someone who's been around for decades, and she didn't let up throughout the entire show.

The same could be said for the three acts as a whole. There wasn't a bum note between them and if picking a perfect line-up, they'd certainly be up there among the greats.

They rocked the arena from start to finish, putting on something for everybody of any age or gender and for that they should be commended. I wouldn't have changed a thing.
