Nicole Scherzinger’s New Single “Run” Sounds Even Better Live: Watch Her Incredible Performance

When you see Nicole Scherzinger strut her stuff live it’s unfathomable that she isn’t an even bigger star. The former Pussycat Doll performed new US single “Run” on Access Hollywood Live yesterday (September 30) and knocked it out of the park — oozing raw emotion and delivering goosebumps-inducing vocal acrobatics. In an era of struggle runs and playback, she is utterly refreshing.

Produced by Felix Snow, who is perhaps best known for his work with SZA, “Run” is an old-fashioned power ballad with a beautifully understated arrangement. It’s a brave change of pace for Nicole — she is the queen of sexy club bangers — but might just be left-field enough to work stateside. Her debut US album Big Fat Lie is expected to be released here early next year. Watch her stunning performance after the jump.
