Jessica and her family - mum, dad, brother and pet dog - have lived in Middlesbrough for most of Jessica's life, and she's proud of her hometown. She wants to prove to people that there is talent in Middlesbrough!

She started singing at the age of six, and had vocal lessons to work towards her exams from that age. She was part of the Middlesbrough Youth Theatre company from a young age, and they put on many musical productions which gave Jessica an interest in performing. In 2008 she was a finalist at the 'Miss Dance' competition at Blackpool Winter Gardens.

She says singing in front of Andrew Lloyd-Webber at her audition was the best thing that has happened to her in her entire life. It was "totally life changing".

Jessica's Progress

Jessica received good comments from the panel for her previous performance, with Shelia saying she really 'acted the part'. This week she took on the Mary Poppins classic, Supercalifragilistic.

Danielle and Jessica found themselves in the second sing off of the weekend performing Take That Look Off Your Face. The Lord delivered his verdict and saved Danielle. Jessica misses out on the semi final. She handed back her slippers and sang Over The Rainbow for one last time.

It was musical week and the Dorothys came together for an electrifying version of Defying Gravity from the hit musical, Wicked. Their mission performance was Talk To The Animals. Finishing off the show, the final five Dorothys took to the stage to perform a medley of all things Oz...
