John Newman is taking the United States by storm, with a recent debut televised performance on Jimmy Fallon to perform his debut single “Love Me Again” — and now, he’s conquering daytime television as well in a performance of the song on Ellen.
As with his Fallon set, his vocals sound huskier and scratchier than they do in the studio version, but it’s still clear why he’s one of the most hotly tipped new talents of the year; he handles his choreography relatively nimbly with some James Brown-style footwork.
“Love Me Again” just keeps on climbing the charts, and this performance should only give it an additional boost.
Watch it up top.
