Joss Stone tells the court that the day of the alleged incident started out as a normal day, until the police turned up to tell her someone was trying to kidnap and kill her.
Other than that, she said, it was a very nice day.
Joss Stone tells the court that she didn't ever use the burglar alarm on her house or lock her door. She says no one in Devon does.
But she says she now uses an alarm, and locks the doors and windows.
Joss Stone, wearing a white silk shirt and black skirt, is asked about being invited to the wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton.
She confirms that she attended the wedding because she had performed for them in the past.
The jury is being shown a video of the MTV Cribs programme in which Joss Stone gives a tour of the modest pink cottage and pink car she had at the time.
The tour includes her purple bedroom - her favourite colour, she says.
Soul singer Joss Stone is in the witness box giving evidence in the trial of two men accused of plotting her murder. She gives her full name as Jocelyn Eve Stoker.
She is being asked about an episode of the MTV programme Cribs that was filmed at her home in 2008, which may have helped the defendants to identify her address.
Joss Stone is expected to take to the witness box at Exeter Crown Court any minute now.
One of Joss Stone's neighbours has been called as a witness.
She is telling the court that three weeks before the alleged incident she saw an old red car, with three people inside driving slowly close to Joss Stone's home in Devon.
The prosecution in the trial of Kevin Liverpool, 35, and Junior Bradshaw, 32, is reading a series of text messages sent from Liverpool to someone called Junior Judge. Two of the messages read:
Kevin Liverpool and Junior Bradshaw, both of St Stephens Close in Manchester, stand accused of conspiring to rob, murder and commit grievous bodily harm against Joss Stone.
Both deny all the charges.
The prosecutor has told the jury that they must decide whether the two defendants are part of a wider conspiracy to "rob and kill Joss Stone".
"This case is about a decision by a group of individuals, of which these defendants are two," Simon Morgan QC said. "Your job will be to determine whether you think these two are part of a plot."
He said that an "offence is committed as soon as the agreement is reached," and that the two defendants acted on the plan.
"They got a car, they collected their weapons of choice, and they made their way from Manchester to a short distance from Joss Stone's house," he said.
