Representing the UK’s finest talent, Emeli Sandé and Jessie J took to the stage on last night’s ‘American Idol’ Finale to perform with the finalists. Jennifer Hudson did so too, and it was a real power house fest.

Anyone that chooses to appear on The Wendy Williams Show is a sucker for punishment, but Ciara got through it earlier today. Low album sales, new romance and her much talked about feud with Rihanna are some of the subjects that came to fruition during their little chat. Check it out.
Remaking Beyoncé’s ‘Crazy In Love’ was always going to be a unique process for those attempting it. And Emeli Sandé puts her own brassy spin on the iconic number.
The Scottish singer/songwriter collaborates with The Bryan Ferry Orchestra, which sees her join Beyoncé on the soundtrack of Baz Lurhman’s forthcoming movie, ‘The Great Gatsby’, available May 7th.
Chart history has been made now that Emeli Sandé has spent the most consecutive weeks in the UK Top 10 with a debut album.
‘Our Version of Events’ has smashed a record held by The Beatles for nearly 50 years. The project, which became the biggest-selling album of 2012, has spent 63 weeks in the UK Top 10 in comparison to The Beatles’ 62-week reign.
After wrapping up her Stateside tour this week, Emeli Sandé continues with her promotional trail by dropping by ‘The Ellen DeGeneres Show’, yesterday. The British songbird took to the stage to perform her hit single ‘Next to Me’ from her critically acclaimed debut ‘Our Version of Events’. Unwrap another stunning performance below.
Soulful diva Emeli Sandé appeared on ‘Jimmy Kimmel Live’ last night to perform two hit singles from her debut album ‘Our Version of Events’. With the assistance of a full band, the singer empowered souls with flawless performances of ‘Next To Me’ and ‘Heaven’. Kudos to her for not giving up on the States. We can only hope that at some point they warm up to her in return.
With only a few weeks left until Emeli Sandé releases her tour DVD ‘Live at The Royal Albert Hall’, the singer and her team give fans a glimpse of what to expect by uploading official performance footage from the set. Two performances uploaded to Emeli’s official VEVO channel consist of ‘Clown’ and ‘Next To Me’.
Her debut album, ‘Our Version of Events’, was the biggest-selling UK album of 2012, so it’s definitely a wise decision to take further advantage from the album’s momentum. Hell, why not? Adele certainly did! You can purchase the DVD when it drops in stores on February 18th. Enjoy the footage!
Emeli Sandé‘s debut LP ‘Our Version Of Events’ became the first album to sell more than a million copies in the UK last year. Sadly, the same could not be said for her Stateside sales which has yet to hit the 50k mark since its release. However, she was back on Stateside territory to tour several cities and to perform on ‘The Today Show’.
Once she hit the stage, she delivered stunning performances of ‘Next to Me’ and ‘My Kind of Love’. They were absolutely beautiful. Honestly, how can US audiences NOT appreciate this type of talent? Her competition is Adele so perhaps there was not enough room for two UK divas of similar age to rule America. *shrugs*
