Joss Stone puts on an energetic performance as she takes to the stage in a plunging leopard print slip dress in Switzerland

She is currently travelling across the globe as part of her Total World Tour.

And Joss Stone put on an energetic and melodic show at the Blue Balls festival in Lucerne, Switzerland, on Friday.

The British singer, 32, captivated the crowd with her animated performance and her stunning plunging leopard print slip dress.

In her trademark style, she forwent footwear as she danced on stage barefoot whilst singing into the microphone alongside her live band.

The blonde beauty styled her short platinum tresses into loose wave, she accessorised with a nose ring and stacks of rings on her fingers.

Highlighting her pretty features, the Right to Be Wrong hitmaker modelled a face of gold and bronze make-up.

Happy to be on stage, the gorgeous singer clapped along with the audience and threw a peace sign.

Earlier this month, Joss was deported from Iran, the ‘Soul Sessions’ artist had arrived in the Islamic Republic of Iran as part of a worldwide concert tour, though she didn’t plan to perform there.

Posting on Instagram, Stone appeared in a video wearing a white headscarf saying: ‘Well, we got to Iran, we got detained and then we got deported.’

She told her fans that while she knew it was illegal to perform, she still wanted to see Iran.

She described the authorities that met her on arrival at Iran’s Kish Island as professional throughout their interaction.

‘These people are genuinely nice kind people that felt bad that they couldn’t override the system,’ she wrote in a caption.

Under Iranian law, women cannot perform solo concerts, though women do play in ensemble bands and orchestras.

It’s unclear what Stone planned to otherwise do in Iran, though her Instagram post described her desire to show ‘the positives of our globe.’

Iranian newspapers reported Stone’s Instagram comments, though there was no immediate government comment on her claims.

Stone earlier posted images of herself boarding a flight to Iran’s Kish Island in the Persian Gulf, which is an economic free zone that allows travel by all nationalities.

In March this year, Stone performed in Syria for an audience of 70 people, largely made up of a Kurdish militia’s foreign fighters.

Her journeys in these unlikely locations is part of her Total World Tour where she aims to play in every country.

Speaking of performing in Syria, she said: ‘It was very different – we have played 174 countries and that was unique. But I’m really happy to be here.’

She has also visited Saudi Arabia where she ran into criticism from her fans for supporting the decision to wear the Niqab – a full face covering veil worn by some Muslim women.

She told her fans that ‘The women here are strong and exercising their choice to be free, wear what they want and do what they want,’ she wrote on her Instagram.

Stone first came to fame in 2003 as a small-town teenager with a big, soulful voice, showcased on her best-selling debut album ‘The Soul Sessions’ and hit singles including ‘Fell In Love With A Boy.’
