Wasnt too sure on this song before but he gave an astonishing performance of it at the BRIT's.

It's shot up to number 6 on iTunes, from number 30 before he performed an hour or so ago.

The recorded version isn't as good as the live version imo.

This is a million times better than Suit and Tie. I am official excited about the album. He looked and performed amazing on the Brits too Great to see him with the beard shaved off for a change

It was a top performance at the Brits! I'm not too struck on the song but Justin has still got it, especially his voice which sounds just the same as 8 years ago!

Loved his performance last night at the Brits.

I watched the Grammys and he was great there too.

Mirrors has overtaken One Direction on the iTunes chart and gone to number one :O

Won't beat them in the official chart of course but very impressive all the same!

Fantastic performance and a really good tune too. Nice to see it at 1 on iTunes.

Personally I think.... 'Mirrors' is a good song but not great, definitely better than 'Suit & Tie' though. JT's Brits performance was cool but nothing wow...... maybe my expectations of JT musically and performance wise are so high that I feel slightly underwhelmed so far by this so-called 'comeback' of his.

Anyone know why all uploads of the Brits performance have been taken down? It's really annoying! I've paid for the studio version but would like to also be able to listen to the Brits performance because, annoyingly, it's better. Very frustrating.

Copyright I imagine. Same reason every clip of JT performing there has been taken down online. I really don't see why though. People always upload clips of singers performing on TV shows/at award ceremonies, etc, so why is this so different? Usually I wouldn't care but its just so frustrating when the BRIT performance is better than the studio version but we can't listen to it again.

I quite like Suit & Tie, but this is certainly a better offering. Having said that, neither track is a patch on his previous work. It's lucky that he's managed to stay 'relevant', or I'd imagine this comeback would be a complete disaster.

Number 4 in the chart. Very impressive considering he only performed it 4 days ago and it's had no other promotion really.

Not quite a 'Someone Like You' Brits performance sales response but pretty impressive all the same. It's an excellent song. I'm glad he's back on the music scene (although I think he gave a good acting performance in Social Network).

i didnt really enjoy his performance at the Brits but the song is quite good, i just feel he should have come back after his LONG return with something different then relying on Timbaland to produce his tracks again and trying to do Cry Me A River part 2, thats what i feel like his main focus has been...:/

Its free if you preorder the album or can be bought individually as a separate track from the album. Not an 'official release' I guess.
