    Not a great representation of her live performances. She is clearly nervous and the sound is off here. When I saw her touring with Deerhunter she was superlative.

    She’s great live. I’ve seen her be the best performer at a festival. Something got fucked up with monitoring- go watch other live vids. She’s excellent

    Too bad her voice was cracked. She is brilliant and she can sing way better than this.
    Maybe she felt kind of nervous or a bit shy. It must have been weird in there, singing such a beautiful and personal song in front of an audience having dinner and involved in casual conversation

      I beg to differ. I've seen her live, and her vocals sound just fine to me. Just sounds here as if she was having a bad night. Shit happens.

      Check out her Tiny Desk. Absolutely stunning voice. I saw her live, and even though she was hella jet lagged, she nailed it. I think her voice was shot, or the monitoring was off.

      I've seen her live and she was even better than on the album, honestly! check out her other live performances :)

      People, don´t judge her talent only by this performance, please take a time to listen to her albums, seeing other performances and then make an opinion.

    I don't know what was going on here but something doesn't sound right, somewhat flat vocally, was it the ear monitors or perhaps even the sung key a touch too high? Had she been on X Factor she'd not have made it thru. But here we're watching someone who has made several albums and performed on stage, i'm sure she can do so much better and wish her well.

      @matt n lydia Kelly You may not have enjoyed it but that doesn't mean it isn't music or that the industry is "corrupt"; it just wasn't to your taste. There's no denying that her vocals were off during this performance, but I'm sure there was a reason for it as I've seen her live before and she's enchanting. As for criticising black midi's musicianship, there's incredible skill in what they do and I can guarantee they're better musicians than you
