Leona Lewis sang new single Collide live on Simon Cowells new UK game show, Red or Black. Though Leona started off shaky, she managed to gain confidence when the heavy backing vocals kicked in, providing her voice a little cover and support. After that point her voice soared on its own, though struggling slightly in the lower extremes of the verses, and she proceeded to give a great rendition of the Avicii sampled song. The set was also surprisingly good- Simon Cowell has really managed to secure a big budget for the show- but I hated that they based the routine around the shows name, it was pretty tacky- as I should mention this post is about it to get. Still not liking the song though. I just can't get over that sample.
On another, shallower, note, has Leona Lewis had a nose job? I know she's been dogged by rumours of surgery since she began, but this is the first time I've actually noticed a change for myself. It doesn't even seem a subtle change, with her nose looking noticeably less bulbous and a whole lot more refined around the tip than before. It could just be down to good make-up and/or the poor quality of the video I suppose. She just needs to be aware that tampering with the nose can change the sound of the voice!! Whatever the case, it's her nose and I'm not fussed what she does with it, but it was just a shock is all. What I do care about is the music Leona, so please have better than this on the upcoming album, Glass Heart!
