POP singer Jessie J will be back in Dublin after a long hiatus when she supports smooth singer Justin Timberlake at the Phoenix Park this summer.

The Do It Like A Dude singer will be joined by X Factor winner James Arthur; who has spent his time since the show developing his sound and fixing his teeth.

This will be Jessie's first time performing in Ireland since falling out with TCD students at the 2011 Trinity Ball.

After performing, the pop singer took to Twitter to air her concern for the drunken students at the gig.

"Just came off stage at Trinity Ball. Probably one of the hardest gigs to date," she raged.

"To see so many people so drunk they couldn't even stand. Girls unconscious and (students were) literally trampling on each other. It wasn't easy."

FESTIVAL

Jessie (25) was due to play Dublin's O2 arena in March this year but postponed the gig until this coming October.

"I would like to be the first to tell you that my Nice To Meet You Tour has been rescheduled to later," she said at the time.

"I am honestly truly sorry but I hope you all can understand that it's just because I would like to make this my biggest and best ever and cannot wait for you to hear all my songs."

Jessie J also pulled out of Oxegen festival in 2011 just days before the annual event, resulting in Amanda Brunker's brief yet memorable festival set.

But we're sure Jessie will be more than happy to take to the stage to support JT.

Timberlake's new album, The 20/20 Experience, went straight to Number 1 in the Irish, UK and American charts.

And Justin also confirmed his status as top of the pop charts with his performance at this years Grammy and Brit Awards.

And Middlesbrough favourite James Arthur could barely contain his excitement when he heard he was warming up for the singer.

"Ladies and gents I am happy to announce that I will be supporting the legend that is Justin Timberlake, July 10, at Phoenix Park," he wrote.
