About Willow Smith

At the age of 11, Willow Smith has already been seen on the big and small screen opposite some of today's most successful actors and actresses, including her father Will Smith. Wanting to pursue her real passion, Smith launched her music career with the release of the hit single, "Whip My Hair," which debuted to rave reviews and quickly became a dance anthem, selling more than two million copies. In the fall of 2010, Smith signed with Jay-Z's record label, Roc Nation. Continuing to make waves in the music industry, Smith teamed up with hip hop superstar Nicki Minaj in the fall of 2011 for her third single "Fireball." The duo shot the music video for "Fireball" under the direction of acclaimed video director Hype Williams.

Smith also is a philanthropist serving as a youth ambassador, alongside her brother Jaden Smith, for Project Zambi in conjunction with the Hasbro Corporation. She is currently working on her debut album scheduled for release in 2012. Smith is the recipient of several awards including an NAACP award for Outstanding New Artist and BET's "YoungStar" award.

About Jessie J

It's been a phenomenal year for British superstar Jessie J. Since winning the acclaimed BBC Sound of 2010 poll and the 2011 Brits Critics' Choice Award, J has racked up 19 global No. 1 hits, selling over two million albums and five million singles worldwide. She's also stormed across the live music scene with two sell-out tours and a string of renowned world festival performances at Glastonbury, Bestival, V Festival and The Big Chill festival, where she opened for Kanye West. Her Lava/Universal Republic debut album "Who You Are," showcases the skills of a gifted lyricist while highlighting an unforgettable journey. In the last few years, J has penned songs for the likes of Chris Brown and Lisa Lois, the winner of Holland's "The X Factor." Her life inspired the melody of a major hit record, "Party in the USA," performed by Miley Cyrus. J has had huge success in the U.S. with the Dr. Luke-produced "Price Tag," an upbeat, energetic dance number that highlights her booming voice.
