    I saw her on Ellen a couple of days ago and have watched this vid probably 20 times since. I love the energy in it...



    the girl just cooks, I'm glad you posted about her.

    I think there's a good possibility that the bald guitar player is the same one that's in her band. Just a hunch as that Strat shows up in several vids.

    The "Rap" part of that video drags down the energy level to zip.

    Then she comes back and kicks it in the ass.... :cool:

    Watched a couple of those clips and she just did not do it for me. The whole James Brown act comes off as a gimmick to me. Give me Sharon Jones, Alice Russell or Kylie Auldist over her any day.

    There sure are a lot of references, arn't there? The horns, the accents, the dancing, even the cape and haircut. I got to say she is very good and I love the energy. If you are going to steal, steal from the best.
