Video of the Moment #218: Pixie Lott

By on Tuesday, 9th February 2010 at 6:00 pm

How’s this for something unusual I found on Mercury Music’s Twitter? Here’s a live performance by Essex pop princess Pixie Lott, covering Kings of Leon’s ‘Use Somebody’ for the telly programme ‘Dancing on Ice’. Lott is standing in the middle of an ice rink while world-famous ice skating duo Torvill and Dean are skating near her. We can only imagine what she’s thinking.

I’m posting this as light entertainment because we here at the American offices of TGTF have had heated (albeit humourous!) discussions about this particular Kings of Leon song. Why? ‘Use Somebody’ seems to be the village bicycle of cover songs, having been performed in the past in Radio1’s Live Lounge by no less than the likes of Bat for Lashes, Friendly Fires, and Paramore.

Lott was nominated for three BRITs this year, including one for a fierce battle with Florence and the Machine, Friendly Fires, JLS, and La Roux for the British Breakthrough Act gong (an award sponsored by Radio1). You have until 19:00 GMT Friday, the 12th of February, to vote for your favourite here. I’ve already voted. What are you waiting for?
