The one and only Nelly Furtado stopped by funnyman Alan Carr's Channel 4 show on Friday (May 18th) to promote her upcoming album "The Spirit Indestructible" (now delayed to September 2012) in an interview and perform for the first time on television the first single, the Darkchild-produced "Big Hoops (Bigger the Better)"...Watch below! By the way, first of all, I'm really shocked at the 'push-back' announce of the album especially since it was only last month when a so-excited Nelly announced to fans via Twitter the release date (June 19)...what happened? We can't say 'Big Hoops' have flopped cause the video just premiered and Nelly hasn't done any promo yet. 'Big Hoops' will have its big break on Sunday with Nelly's Billboard Awards performance. That's gonna be a life or death situation for the song. But delaying the album till September with no clear motives?. I'd only be OK with it if this makes Nelly record even hotter songs, and extend the tracklisting even more, haha. *the bigger the better, the bigger the better!*
Back to the 'Chatty Man' appearance, Nelly performed 'Big Hoops' and she did good! She was clearly nervous at the beginning, hence the shaky vocals, nevertheless as the performance progressed it all improved and eventually Nelly slayed me. She sang all LIVE, and those are big points in my book. The addition of the Native American hoop dancers was kind of picturesque! I liked.
