it's just the makeup, it was VERY heavy tonight and very contoured. She had a lot more blusher on than usual, and I noticed there was a lot more shading/highlighting going on.
Maybe so, but they need to stop with that because it's making her face look plastic. Her face looked very swollen in those performances and like parts of it couldn't move, if it's the make up doing that then they need to go for something more natural because it didn't look that great.

Its her make up. It makes her skin look so plastic along with the lighting.

I think it's because of the lighting, they must have used stage make-up or something - it was ridiculously heavy on the Labyrinth tour, but you don't really notice it because of the lighting.

I think it's just a similar situation to the 'Happy' performance in 2009 where they lit her from below and her eyes were black lol

I do love her in red lipstick though, I'd like it to be a shade or two darker maybe though... She looked quite 'Golden Age of Hollywood' tonight with her styling.

I was thinking the same thing...or maybe Botox.
nooo was make up..in the middle east they like this look so i think it was very contoured etc ..she looked stunning and now after Glassheart tour she is growing into a performer and looks like shes enjoying herself and more relaxed ..I love the way she alters her songs because in ten years time she needs to be able to still perform BL and she will be able to...

Ok so I just watched Bleeding Love and I liked the outfit and the make up looked better, but it is definitely a little too heavy.

You guys are probably right, probably because it was on TV it was more noticeable, but I guess the lighting definitely didn't help along with the make up. The outfits were hot and so were the performances, though I always get a little sad when she doesn't do the C6 ad-lib in BL...

Me too...but the host could ask her in more polite way I guess.
Anyway she was very relaxed, happy and confident. Compare this Leona with that girl from 2006....I think we just saw Colin tonight

Yeah it would've been nice to have heard a little bit of something but it was really out of the blue, they should've asked her before hand!

I probably made the best remix of Glassheart.

Actually I think it was kind of rude...It's not like she has to sing a whole song, she could sing 3 or 4 verses and everyone would be happy...the interviewer didn't know what to say, I feel bad for her...

Wow the end of that interview was awkward. She should have just sung a couple of lines of something. lol

They should have asked her before hand, but yeah I don't get why she didn't just do something.

Even if she "didn't prepare anything", she could have sung just a few lines acapella...she's a singer, that's what singers are supposed to do right?

A bit awkward tbh, especially for the interviewer. Leona could have made up an excuse like wanting to rest her voice or something instead of just saying no lmao it was a bit rude and came across like she couldn't be bothered for her fans. But she looked amazing.

As much as we all complained about the Vivienne Westwood dresses at the time, she looked stunning in them! We need less trousers and more off the shoulder dresses!

It would be amazing if Leona was a guest on BGT, obviously she doesn't have a single out right now but she could just perform an album track.

Ellie Goulding is a guest and I don't think she currently has a song to promote, well I know she has the Calvin track but the article said she was performing a medley of Anything Could Happen and Explosions.

Leona looked and sounded STUNNING tonight! Amazing! And so happy we got confirmation about the new album, whether it's the 4th album or if it's just a Christmas one. I'm surprised you guys don't believe she'll get it done by then . If she's going in the studio starting next month, then most of the writing, if not all, for the album most be done, which means it's just recording now. Especially if they're using old demos/unused songs too.

I'm sorry I just watched them performances again and I swear I flipping love Leona whether you believe me or not and something bad has happened to her voice and it makes me so upset! I'm not mad that her voice is deteriorating as such just upset that it's happening so early in get career!!!!! She still hits the notes thank god but the tone and ease is totally different! It sounds really screechy now! I don't like it and it pains me to say that but I don't. I love her songs still and love Glassheart but just not her voice anymore.

I really hope I'm wrong but I have a feeling this fourth album is going to be a Christmas album. The fact Leona specifically said it would be released at Christmas (rather than 'later in the year') and the fact somebody tweeted about working in a choir for a Christmas song for her, it just seems to add up to a Christmas album. There's a way to get Leona back to the top but I don't think a Christmas album is the way to do that. To be honest I think it would make her look desperate, because the fourth album is make or break, and I think releasing a Christmas album off the back of the inevitable X Factor performance would kill her credibility.

Leona needs to bring new material, fresh songs that appeal to the masses. If she goes back in the studio next month that gives her 6 months to put together a great album, more than enough time considering she has loads of amazing leftovers from previous albums which could easily be re-worked and updated as well as new songs.

With regards to her performances yesterday, I was a tad disappointed! I expected her to sound amazing because she always does during and after her tours (I remember after Labyrinth she sang on Stand Up To Cancer in America and her belts were insanely good) but if anything her voice sounded a bit strained and over worked in my opinion. Her voice definitely isn't getting worse because she sounded powerful and angelic on tour, I'm just not sure why it never seems to sound that way on tv anymore...

Please go away!!! You have tried this before and I hope other LLAT posters do not engage with you because you post only to provoke and stir . I think there is a word for it.
