    She performed a new song “Come Alive” of the new record and it was amazing!!!

    She also confirmed that her new single Trouble (which has had great reviews from Journo’s who have heard it) will be out in October and the new album Glassheart will be out in October too.

    Thank GOD!!! We need Leona back!

  • Pete

    I’m glad she takes time on her records too, nice to see time and effort being put in, instead of churning one out every single year!

  • Lottie

    What is she wearing? She is a great singer just like Adele.

  • Jennifer

    Not loving the outfit to be honest, but she is an incredible singer.

  • Ashley

  • Leila

    I agree that the outfit is horrible, and what about the hair?
    She’s a great singer…but she looks like a crazy gypsy woman or something…I dunno just weird. Does she not have eyes? Even if you have a bad stylist you can always say no when they give you a crazy outfit suggestion. Just say no Leona!

  • Oh Yeah!!!

    Great Performance!
