Just noticed that this never had its own thread ohmy.gif Anyway, Tori Kelly performed her second single Should've Been Us, taken from her debut album Unbreakable Smile, last night at the VMAs and she absolutely SMASHED it. I always quite liked the song but the performance sold it to me. Her vocals were incredible wub.gif

Official video:



No video of the VMA performance yet sadly but I'll post it if one appears!

Sadly it's already peaked on radio and is basically freefalling apparently sad.gif Hopefully it can manage a good run regardless!

VMA perfmormance:



Certainly gave it all she got. ohmy.gif

Can't help thinking the song sounds a bit too dated to catch on properly but regardless, the verses are really slick and the whole thing works fantastically well live. What a voice *.*

Yeah, there's not much chance of airplay recovering, but this is definitely a case of 'better late than never'. The VMA boost will give it a better peak and probably carry over to whatever single she releases next, and that one could get even better radio support as a result! Otherwise radio may not have given Tori another chance since neither of the first two singles fully caught on.

The performance was definitely the highlight of the night for me, and her outfit was perfect too!

That performance version of it is SO much better than the studio version, which sounds like something from JoJo's debut album.

Agreed on her voice though, phenomenal! Every live performance I've seen of hers has been above and beyond.

The UK version of the single, featuring Jeremih, premiered on Radio 1Xtra this evening and it is available on UK iTunes now!



I prefer the original because the Jeremih feature is very typical rent-a-rapper and he's only on it for 20 seconds. Hopefully his name will help Tori though!

Jeremih?? Oh Tori sad.gif I don't think he's big enough to help that much anyway sadly but hopefully somehow radio pick it up, such a good song <3

Heard this on Radio 1 earlier. Quite good and the Jeremih feat goes with the song aswell. She does have an excellent voice though. Last song I heard of her was her feature on Pro Green's Lullaby last year.

BTW did anyone hear her live mashup on Radio 1 earlier on! Was brilliant! Matt wanted to see if she could sing anything as she "has such a good voice" and she can haha.

My favourite part was her singing the Bob the Builder theme tune laugh.gif laugh.gif

That was actually fantastic! I need her to do a performance of 'Watch Me (Whip/Nae Nae)' in the live lounge or something!
