Leona Lewis Emotes in the Woods in ‘Run’ Video

I started off on Team Leona Lewis, but I'm seriously looking for a trade. It's not that she doesn't have a great voice because she is a technically stunning singer, but I've become increasingly bored. I had that feeling when I saw her lackluster performance on Sunday's AMAs and such is the case once again after watching her new video for "Run," the latest single from her debut disc. The song itself is blah and the video doesn't help matters any. Yeah, Leona looks fantastic running through the wilderness in a gown but that doesn't make a good video. Watch below for yourself to see what I mean. And as far as rumors of her performing at Obama's Inauguration are concerned, it may not be a bad thing. That will be a fine time to take a bathroom break.

  1. Mmm...really? I like the song a lot. This song has actually made me like her more. I wasn't too quick on the jump to start listening to her. Maybe it's because I am a Snow Patrol fan that this really appeals to me.

    And wait? Leona at Obama's inauguration? ...isn't it kind of funny for her to be there since she's British? Oh well.

  3. This is just stunningly beautiful. The song and the video are just perfect together.

  4. I really like the song (the video not so much).
    Being from the UK I'm kinda on Leona overload, I agree she has a fantastic voice, it's just the material that's letting her down abit. This song was only included on the recently released 'Deluxe' edition, the original version had one complete listen and then was shelved ... to be honest i found it boring.
    She needs some new material for definite, less of the sickly sweet ballads and something a bit more 'different' ... then she could really make an impact!

  5. Ive been saying the same thing since day one... beautiful voice, beautiful girl... but to take a line from a Simply Red song... "So beautiful but oh so boring"... she needs some edge to her music... personality... performances... this is what Jessica Simpson was like with her first album... not saying Leona needs to turn into a ditzy sexpot, but she needs *something*

  6. I love this version of the song so much and the video, I think, is pretty nice, and fitting. I don't think Leona is boring but rather that she sort of needs to find a niche, if you will. She hasn't really cornered the market on anything but singing whistle register (especially now that Mariah Carey isn't sounding too great nowadays).
    She has a distinctive voice, but I think she lacks a persona.

  7. I could never really get into her. She bores me to tears.

  8. Yes she is a pretty in a very camel sorta way but oh jesus she puts me to sleep. I don't even know people in the UK that like her.
