I didn’t really care for this performance, even while I struggled to find anything technically wrong with it. Luke can sing and all, but he’s a very awkward performer, and not in an endearing way. However, I imagine his awkwardness is at least partially due to nerves, as it would be for just about anyone plucked from obscurity and asked to perform in front of million. But this was still iffy. The change in the arrangement halfway through was both completely unnecessary and really jarring. And the less said about the weird music video playing in the background, the better.
Luke Friend gives his spin on the classic from Sting and The Police.
