They teased her appearance a couple times going in and out of commercial breaks. She was on around 8:45AM EST for about 5-10 minutes max. She'll be back on again in about 20-25 minutes for another segment.
They sing the song at the beginning of today’s show as a mashup with everyone singing from home via Skype or something. It was obviously not the best way to hear the song because it changes languages the entire time and I hardly knew what they were saying but I’m excited to download it on iTunes but it doesn’t appear to be posted yet.
She sounds SO good. The song doesn't really kick into gear until the second chorus, which is a bit of a shame. I love the surprise ascending vocal scale going into the bridge. I think it's the same one she does at the end of "Keeping Score" with Dan + Shay.
She sounds amazing on this. There is a depth and richness in her voice that I love. Overall, there is something missing from this. I felt like it was coming but it never got there. I hope this is a hit for her.
I'd be down if they released a slightly longer remix that included all 6 languages like the live version above. Certainly not necessary and more of a "look what we did!" than something that would actually be played, but it wouldn't be that hard to put together. And kind of encapsulates the whole "bringing the world together through music"
Because I honestly I would love a more polished version of that. I would play it. I love this whole concept. And it sounds like SHE came up with it?
She is so easy to love. Genuinely a good person. Genuinely wants to spread love and goodness in the world.
Kelly delivered with "I Dare You". Her voice is still amazing and she has that way of pulling at your heartstrings. Even the lyric video is great, and I love how inclusive it is. The duets are done well and even in different languages the song still shines and is beautiful. Not that I know a thing about other languages, but the feeling is there. This is why I stan her. I'm so glad our Queen is still humbly gracing us with amazing music. I'm really looking forward to this new era. So excited!
What a f**king cool project. I posted my full review in the single thread, but even though it's cheesy and 2015-ish in its production, the totality of the project is really special, unique, and ballsy tbh. It sort of makes up for the song being a bit toothless because the project itself is such a beast.
Mostly, I'm just thrilled she's continuing to try new things, even if that "new" isn't the musicality itself.
French is the only other language I semi-know beyond English, but her diction sounds pretty spot-on. I wouldn't mind if she sang future songs in foreign languages.
I like the song. It suits the moment nicely. Not sure how that will impact its success, or how things may have been different if we weren't going through a pandemic during its release. But I'm glad this is out to shine a bit of light on the world right now.
