Watch Christina Aguilera perform "Bound To You" on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno

Christina Aguilera performed another song from the Burlesque soundtrack, Bound to You, on the Tonight Show With Jay Leno.

The beginning, with its lower tessitura, sounded comfortable and in keeping with the recorded version of the beautiful ballad.  However, as the song hit its middle-eight and the higher belted notes began, it started to sound pretty shaky, with some of the top notes sounding out of tune and strained.

Overall it wasn't the most pleasant vocal to listen to. Hopefully it's not a reflection of the stress of the breakup and poor album sales affecting her.

  1. This performance is pretty good, not perfect but good. I think the only really bad part is the end, in which she feels overwhelmed and starts to sing way out of tune and out of tempo (is that hard to keep the original tempo?). The second chorus isn't good either. The bridge is ok. The best are the verses and the first chorus.
