Last year, Jessie J vowed to shave her head for charity, and now she's made good on her promise.

On Friday night, Jessie went under the razor and was shaved bald, all in support of the British charity Comic Relief .  Each year, the charity sponsors something called Red Nose Day, which urges people to "do something funny for money."  Jessie chose to lose her locks, and she debuted her hair-free look live on British television

"It's the weirdest feeling," said the "Price Tag" singer, who looks quite beautiful bald. "It feels so liberating, but this isn't really about this, it's about donations."  She then announced that her stunt had raised over $750,000 so far.

Jessie tweeted , "   I am soooo thankful to everyone who has donated @rednoseday and supported me tonight! My heart is filled with happiness! Lets make a change! X."

Comic Relief works to help the poor and needy worldwide.  It's the same charity for which One Direction recently released their single "One Way or Another (Teenage Kicks)."
