Unfortunately, Twitter is not being unduly mean. It was not a good performance. At all.Leona was on “This Morning” performing One More Sleep and promoting the tour.
I didn’t see it, but the comments on Twitter aren’t positive. Could just be Twitter being Twitter, of course.
Unfortunately, Twitter is not being unduly mean. It was not a good performance. At all.
For the first half, you can hear how she is struggling to maintain the pitch in her chest voice, so she just sings most of it in head voice, just flipping up constantly. Which sounds fine sometimes, but weak other times.
However, the second half of the song is rough. She goes for adlibs and sustained notes that are wildly out of tune.
She's performing outside, at 10am in the morning. Inhaling cold air like that will dry out her vocal chords, so it's the worst possible environment for singing. But there's very evident tuning problems and her voice is extremely wobbly and shaky. For a singer that is known almost exclusively for her incredible voice, that's not a way to reintroduce yourself on TV.
I didn’t see her performance from today but she sounds pretty good here!
It's a real shame but there's just no getting around it. Underneath studio wizardry, excellent live sound engineering and good backing singers, the main vocals are just not it.Oooft that This Morning vocal was hard to listen to, I feel so bad for her that her voice is where it is now.
What has happened to her. It's very sad, was tempted to see her tour but I think I'll give it a miss
Oh god, that's just awful. She just cannot sing well anymore. The voice is gone. This is right at the start of the tour and she's just the support act. That voice is going to be blown completely by the end.
No other big artist would get away with singing that badly, while charging people for the privilege of watching it. It's only because she's so low profile that she largely escapes criticism more publicly. Could you imagine if any of the other, bigger, pop girls went out and delivered these vocals? Eek.
