Cher Lloyd Brings British Sass to ‘TODAY’ Show With ‘Want U Back’ + ‘With Ur Love’
British cutie and PopCrush fave Cher Lloyd brought her sassy pop to the ‘TODAY’ show and Rockefeller Plaza in NYC this morning (Aug. 30.)
The teen performed her smash hit ‘Want U Back’ and her next single, the more mellow but just as catchy ‘With Ur Love,’ to a crowd full of “Brats,” which is her affectionate nickname for her fans. She looked adorbs in her minidress of many colors, black sneakers and spiked microphone.
Cher is so cute, especially when she spews that lyrical sass about the boy she broke up with, but wishes she didn’t. She has animated energy, reminding us of Nicki Minaj in the way that she contorts her face while performing. She’s such an expressive little firecracker. No wonder ‘Want U Back’ is a huge success.
We sound like a broken record with this, but we still can’t believe that Lloyd didn’t win British ‘X Factor!’ She competed on the same season as One Direction, and they lost too! Sounds like the British voters got it dead wrong that season.
Every time the camera panned to the crowd during Lloyd’s “TODAY’ perf, there was a fellow teen singing the words or snapping pics of Lloyd with their camera phone.
Cher is such a charmer. When the camera catches her eye, she flirts with it.
During her interview, Lloyd demonstrated a bit of shyness, like this wave of success is something she is still trying to properly process and that she didn’t expect. She was given her platinum plaque on stage, commemorating ‘Want U Back’ selling a million copies. She gushed about how much it means to her in that adorbs, thick British accent.
She then treated fans to her new single ‘With Ur Love.’ It’s not quite as sassy as ‘Want U Back,’ but it still has pep. There’s a little more hip-hop swagger in the song, showing another side of Cher’s musical personality.
Her debut ‘Sticks + Stones‘ drops Oct. 2.
