Watch: Labrinth & Emeli Sandé Perform 'Beneath Your Beautiful' on 'America's Got Talent', Sales Skyrocket on iTunes
Amazing! Such effortless slayage! English singer-songwriter (and producer) Labrinth made his US television debut on Wednesday night (July 24) on the latest results show of "America's Got Talent". Labrinth brought on stage soul-R&B diva Emeli Sandé on stage to perform their hit collaboration "Beneath Your Beautiful", a song from Labrinth's debut album "Electronic Earth" that reached #1 on the Singles Charts in th UK last year.
Now, the stunning ballad "Beneath Your Beautiful" has been picked by Labrinth's label to be his new (and also first?) single in the US. And what an introduction the song has had! First TV performance on one of the nation's most popular shows right now, "America's Got Talent". Alone on stage, playing his piano, Labrinth began the "Beneath Your Beautiful" performance nailing every note and every vocal, until Emeli hit the scene, the whole production came together, and the British-born pair joined forces, standing up on the middle of the 'Got Talent' stage. What a beautiful performance! I think this is by far their best live offering of the song to date. The emotion of this song still gives me chills!
After their "America's Got Talent" gig, the digital sales of "Beneath Your Beautiful" skyrocketed, making the ballad crack the Top 10 on the highly-competitive iTunes USA chart, sitting, as of this post, at #6. Yaaaas! Go Labrinth. Go Emeli! Smaaash it!
