Zara Larsson and Lady Gaga appeared on the semi-final of the X Factor UK, Season 13 on ITV 1.
Lady Gaga performed hit ballad “Million Reason”. But despite everything being perfect, such as her dress and her makeup, her vocals were terribly delivered. In fact, she ran out of breath on so many occasions that it felt embarrassing even listening to the song. She failed several times to hit the high notes. We know she is equipped with magical vocals and she can totally slay her songs when performing live, but this time she slipped. She couldn’t deliver her best performance and maybe it’s because of her recent performances. She’s probably getting tired a little or maybe she’s sick. She hasn’t said anything about it but with so much traveling during the last few weeks, we can safely assume that it was work overload more than her lack of skill.
On the other hand, Zara Larsson performed “I would Like” from her new album and “Lush Life” from her 2015 hit album. The medley was flawless, including the vocals. Once you see the performance below, you will know why Zara is going to be the next big thing. She’s so calm and her vocals are always under control even when is hitting high notes.
Maybe, Gaga has a few things to learn from Zara Larsson or maybe she simply needs to reschedule things in order to have more time between performances.
