Betty Who's "Somebody Loves You" Performance on 'Late Night' Is Joyous — VIDEO
On Monday evening, pop songstress Betty Who stopped by Late Night With Seth Meyers to perform her debut single, "Somebody Loves You," and she pretty much killed it. Who's fans are probably a little tired of seeing the 22-year-old singer-songwriter perform "Somebody Loves You" by now. After all, the song initially premiered online all the way back in 2012 and Who's released two EPs since then — but this was her big broadcast television premiere!
"Somebody Loves You" was the perfect song choice to introduce people across the country to Who's bubbly, unique sound. Besides, some of us are still crossing our fingers that the track will become a big radio hit one day (can we make that happen already, please?) so the fact that Who's still performing it keeps those dreams alive.
As I said, "Somebody Loves You" first premiered online in 2012, and it got some music blogs talking, but it didn't really take off until Sept. 2013, when it was featured in this Home Depot marriage proposal video that went viral. Shortly after that, Who signed a recording contract with RCA Records, and the rest, as they say, is herstory! Now, she's hard at work on her first full-length album, due out sometime later this year.
Who definitely went for a different look on Late Night — I don't think I've ever seen her with a spray tan, and I've certainly never seen her show that much skin! But as long as those style choices are truly her choices (and not the record label's, for instance), it's cool. First-major-TV-appearance jitters may have caused some strange facial expressions and the ill-advised Rihanna-esque body rolling during the song's bridge, but otherwise, Who totally nailed it.
Ah, don't you just want to buy "Somebody Loves You" on iTunes right now? If you like what you heard, please be sure to check out Who's two outstanding EPs: The Movement and Slow Dancing. Who will be opening for Katy Perry on the Australian leg of her Prismatic World Tour later this year.
