There are times when a live performance of a song can cause you to change your opinion on it a full 180°. I'll be the first to admit that Beyonce's Run The World sounded like noise until I saw this live showing of it at the American Music Awards. Unfortunately this hasn't happened for Nicole Scherzinger and her new single Boomerang, which the Ex-Pussycat Doll has been promoting all over British television in the hopes it'll chart high this weekend.
I like Nicole. Not only does she have a strong voice and is an able performer, but she seems a sweet and amiable individual- if her stint on X-Factor is to be believed. Liking her so, I really wanted to be able to root for this track, but Boomerang was dead on arrival and nothing she seems to do- short of remixing it, perhaps- is going to give it any life. Shame really.
Nicole Scherzinger has so much potential, but thus far in her solo career it's been wasted on mostly mediocre material. Let's hope the next single will buck this trend and blow us all away.
