Live Review: Demi Lovato - Neon Lights @ Jay Leno

Debuting her fresh new blue hair, Demi took the stage to bring an impressive vocal of her latest single, Neon Lights. 

The recent removal of her tonsils really paid off here, as she gave one of the best vocals in quite some time. The pitch was spot-on throughout, and she even dug deep into her chest to nail the C#3 in the first verse (the lowest note she's ever sung live I believe). She then took into the upper reaches of the atmosphere to nail the sustained notes in the chorus replacing any issues with vibrato.

A very solid performance, and hopefully she'll continue down this path in terms of vocal performance. I will say however, that Neon Lights seems like a horrible single choice, it's a bit bland and will probably get lost in the ocean of similar Top 40 tracks. However, it shouldn't take much to surpass the lackluster No.80 peak of Made In The USA.

Overall: A-
