SLAYxandra.....absolutely stunning. Makes me annoyed that Emeli Sandé was at the Olympic ceremonies 4 times yet we have voices like AB's pushed to the sidelines in the UK. This girl needs to MAKE IT internationally, her time needs to come. She needs to get the album right, because that voice is just amazing.

Exactly. That really annoyed me last year.

And I agree about her hair, it looked the best it has in a long time.

She needed to sing that at the Olympics tbqh. Amazing. Her outfit looked beautiful. The hat obvz was taken off for it. I like those sort of gown esque jackets. She is souling the 3rd era up!

She looked so polished and put together, the new hairstyle, the voice, the arrangement. She is not playing. A world away from that LIG NBA disaster last year...I really want her to have her international breakthrough, seeing that made me realise that it's criminal she isn't known internationally compared to other new UK acts...

SAME! I love the classy looks. She's worth more than a $1m as they say, she should act that way! Why did it sound like her voice thinned and then flew back into power? Did she move the mic too far out?

True. She did nothing wrong. And my GOD. You could actually get them done for assault if it scared her properly and depressed her (law student here )

I'm not really overly keen on her version of the national anthem, it should be a bit more understated in my eyes. But she sounded very nice on it.

Her look has come on leaps and bounds as well - thought the blue nails were very... eye catching.

I would ignore those comments, looks at the audience's reaction from the game, they cheered when she went for the bigger notes, I don't believe she is as hated by the general public as the way twitter makes it look.

I suppose since she bombed, she's OTT proving she can sing, and like SANG sing. I get why.

The thing is, the album didn't make the top 10 and one single didn't do that well, fair enough, but Elephant was a top 3 hit and Tonight was a #1 mega-smash in Greece and popular across Europe, so it wasn't a total disaster like Tulisa or something.

For her sales will matter. It'd have killed her poor soul. She knows she has to prove her mettle I like it. I want anyone to hear her to hear THAT voice. Always. Whenever you heard Whitney she was sanging. Quietly or loudly. But always her best (till 2002).

Just listening back to the other 3 versions of Perfect. Glad they went with the style of the final version tbh. She should work with Bruno again.

I do get why but sometimes less is more - especially when she has such a gorgeous tone to her voice. But I think people would've hated regardless.

It's great that she can still pull in TV slots though, her management are doing a pretty good job all around. She's in the papers, looking good, sounding great and working with the right producers. Things are looking up!

Also I'm yet to comment on the Live and Let Die leak. Yay! The vocals on that are great, the production's a bit cheap and obviously not hugely geared to her voice but that makes sense since it was just for people to walk out too
