    Highlight being at 9 seconds when someone accidentally opens the door to the stage.

    oh dear, oh my. what a state.

    the microphone twirling isn't going to get real old real soon, no.

    the song's growing on me mind but then i'm still drunk from last night.

    Sadly I think she's left it too late. Most people have long since moved on from her now.

    I quite like that performance actually. I also like the song for what it is, I don't think she is trying to make the next bad romance or poker face, heck it's not like mark ronson is even a guaranteed hit maker anyway (good as he is, uptown funk was a one off in that regard)

    This is not going to be a massive chart hit but I'm still interested to hear the album, if it's good and keeps the fans on board she will continue to have a successful career albeit on a completely different scale to her peak

    I decided I quite like this, the chorus is very catchy.

    That live performance is tragic, I don't understand why nothing can be just fun with her.

    Was she wearing a bra last night? The potential for a nipple slip sending social media and lazy print media basing their stories on social media into a frenzy must have been huge,

    This is abysmal, I like the intro and that's IT. It sounds terrible on the radio, too. The pre-chorus(?) sounds like it'll be onto something OK, but it never quite happens, and doesn't go anywhere either. The one thing it has going for it is its short length

    *plays "Make Me"*

    It's come to criticising her microphone twirling now? :D The detractors are hilarious!

    It's not like she's the sort of performer who uses the same tricks in her performances over and over again anyway, even if the microphone twirling WAS so offensive...

    i didn't say it was offensive. i just think that it feels forced, like she thought "oh that'd look cool" which it kinda does but by the third time she does it, it'll just look a bit lamé. s'all.

    here i go with the non-shock impending u-turn. i like the instrumental.

    Oh my god, Gags jumping up trying to make Illusion happen reminds me of Shabnam's Big Brother eviction, not to mention Lauren Harries thinking she was on 9 seconds in. Our first iconic moment - the song is going to become a classic regardless of quality and that's all I've ever wanted from her.

    She was the one that did the "A to the A, B to the B, C to the D" chant to the audience?

    I'm loving her style, it's very simple and sexy. The song though is now getting even worse everytime I hear it. I'm just not a fan of the genre, so it's not just because I can't stand Gaga. :)

    as I stated before, I LOVE the instrumental, I knew I Was gonna do a u-turn when it surfaced

    It sounds like UPTOWN GIRL on steroids, high heels and a big gay FAN on a runway.

    and the bells are very Tame Impala

    I can confirm this song reaches its full potential whilst being played driving down the motorway in the rain.
