The one and only Legend X finally decided to perform a song from her Lotus album last night, but it wasn’t her criminally underrated non-comeback single “Your Body”. Instead, she opted for the Cee Lo collaboration “Make The World Move”, which turned out to be a sufficient replacement for “Your Body” once Xtina left everybody in The Voice studio wigless and crying.
Aggie finally looked amazing during a major performance for once, and she sounded as good as ever. Her signature shouty soul diva vocals were still there, but she only went overboard and bit off more than she could chew during one moment towards the end, which is much better than doing it every five seconds like she usually does.
The Bionic beauty served up Sofia Coppola’s Marie Antoinette realness with her look, and even lived up to her Queentina moniker by wearing a fucking crown. I’d like to think that more performances like this delivered a month ago would have helped Lotus and “Your Body”, but they probably wouldn’t have made a huge difference. It’s all about airplay and scoring hits to sell albums, and Legend X doesn’t have a hit. Lotus is currently being outsold by the likes of The Weeknd and Lana Del Rey on iTunes, which is deserved since both artists delivered better albums than Xtina, but I still want to see the Kween back on top.
Here’s hoping that the Lotus era picks up steam once RCA inevitably ship “Let There Be Love” to radio.
