Ahead of Ellie Goulding
‘s European tour, the BRIT Award-nominated singer
gave one last stateside push for “Burn”
by performing the single on The Late Show With David Letterman
on Tuesday night (January 21). Like Ellie’s previous US hit “Lights,”
this one’s been a bit of a slow-burner
(yeah, yeah — enough with the eye-rolling), given that we first heard it last summer. So far it’s peaked at #13 on the Billboard Hot 100.
For her performance on Letterman, Ellie wore a sheer top and black shorts with matching bra, which caused Dave to quip, “You can see right through that shirt.” Nothing gets by him, does it?
