Seems Jojo isn’t the only young songstress causing a commotion with her covers. Bruno Mars‘ ‘Grenade’ also got the cover treatment from British bred songbird Leona Lewis, who lent her talents to the 2011 Doha Tribeca Film Festival.
Acting as the fest’s closing act, the ‘Better In Time’ belter took a shot at some of recent pop history most celebrated numbers – covering everything from the Mars hit and One Republic‘s ‘Apologize’ to Seal‘s classic hit ‘Kiss From a Rose’. This, of course, was accompanied by the X Factor alum treating fans to her own hits ‘Bleeding Love’ and ‘Collide’.
How did she fare? Find out after the jump:
‘Kiss From a Rose’
When compared against her peers, the tonal quality of Lunesta Lewis’ voice is almost unmatched. The precision of her vocal performances are textbook ( certainly deserving study by some of today’s leading pop pretenders). But, even in all of that, the lack of engage that accompanies her performances is almost criminal. ‘Grenade’ was truly a bomb – for all of the unfortunate reasons. Vocal precision? Uncanny! Ambien ambassador? Certainly.
