Cher Lloyd Performs ‘Want U Back’ on ‘Ellen’
British cutie Cher Lloyd performed ‘Want U Back,’ her platinum smash single, on ‘Ellen’ today (Oct. 1), in advance of the release of ‘Sticks & Stones.’ The album lands tomorrow, and what better way to remind her Brats to pick up the record than by performing her biggest song on a national daytime talk show?
Looking petite and womanly with her wavy hair, pastel mini skirt and form flattering tank, Lloyd offered up a different side of herself, in terms of image, style and attitude, than we’ve seen during her previous TV performances.
She eschewed bringing any of the diner-style production of the song’s video to the ‘Ellen’ stage, even though she did such during her ‘America’s Got Talent‘ nighttime performance in July. She also skipped the colorful, teen-centric costume she wore during her ‘TODAY‘ show appearance, which was outside and at the end of the summer.
It was not her best nor her most energetic performance of the sassy song, and the live vocals seemed a bit out of sync with the pre-taped ones, which are necessary due to the layers and harmonies. Perhaps the fact that she was performing inside, on afternoon TV, caused her to turn in a more muted performance, but we still loved it, since everything Cher Lloyd does is not only adorable but full of swagger.
No doubt her Brats loved it.
