Sia isn't a confident performer- despite what she projects. The songwriter extraordinaire- who is currently celebrating her first Hot 100 #1 (yay, her)- has even gone as far as to say she hates singing in front of crowds. So why continue to go through the torture of performing at all? Because of the fans, apparently. Bless.
With this understanding, could her MIA vocals during Chandelier at Good Morning America be the fault of nervousness? In the interview that followed the disastrous showing, Sia did reveal she'd been in tears backstage, stressing over hitting the song's textured belts. Clearly something was up.

The BBC Proms have added a Gospel night to their annual festivities at the Royal Albert Hall- praise the Lord!
And I'm sure, like all of you, when I think of Gospel music, only one name comes to mind. That's right: Michelle "Destiny's Child" Williams. Having been tirelessly waving the flag for Christian music since
Congratulations are in order for faceless Diva, Sia.
The infectious Cheap Thrills has rocketed to the top of the Billboard Hot 100, finally wrestling the crown from Drake's AWFUL (yeah, I said it, come for me, bitches!!) One Dance.

If you don't know the score, here be the rules:
- Try not to get too perverted- this site needs to basically be "safe for work".
- If somebody starts a controversial subject, try keeping it civil when dealing with it. If things get out of hand please flag the conversation.
- It would be nice if it stuck to music, but it's not a requirement! So talk about news, current events, how you're getting your hair done next time you hit the hairdresser! Whateves, really!
- No nasty comments aimed at other users.
Celine Dion has the most infectiously enthusiastic attitude. So, as soon I read that she'd taken part in The Tonight Show's Wheel Of Musical Impressions, I knew it was going to make for good viewing.
Loose and game, Celine didn't only serve vocal likenesses. She went a step further, embodying their physicalities, too. Her dusty Dutty Whine- during Work- wasn't something I knew I needed, but I'll be henceforth thanking the universe for it being delivered unto me.
Damn you Fallon for cutting it short. It would have ended up in a full on slut-drop! I just know it!

Katy Perry, Britney Spears and now Demi Lovato, all releasing new music on this weekend eve. There must be something in the water!
'80s in flavour, Body Say is another saucy song from the oft-salty Diva. Laid back and breezy in production, the vocals are similar in tone, kept (pretty) restrained. It's the cooing and sensual delivery of Demi that is, for the most part, left to reel in a listener.
