Watch Emeli Sandé Perform “Next To Me” on Jimmy Kimmel and Elsewhere

Feb 6th, 2013 in Music

While Adele has been off accepting suspect awards for a questionable one-off (Skyfall), Scotland’s Emeli Sandé has taken over the airwaves in her native UK following the release of debut album Our Version of Events.  We confess to being late to her game, but last night Sandé appeared with her band on the Jimmy Kimmel Show and demonstrated why she is dominating.  Could a part of the allure be attributable to the depth and substance in her well-wrought lyrics?  We can only hope.  Watch as they perform her heartwarming ode to her faithful one, Next To Me.

After, watch a superb unplugged version of the same song (while accompanied by Wayne Plummer on acoustic guitar) on Minneapolis’ The Current, followed by an acoustic-reggae rendering of the similarly warming Where I Sleep.  Finally, watch her rapturous performance of her soul-stirring Heaven for QTV.  There’s a new diva in town, and her name is Emeli Sandé.
