There's something special about performers like her, who lay it all out there and just bring their soul to the table, even if it means a couple strange movements during the act. It's endearing, in a way, but I'm usually too wrapped up in her voice to actually form a complete sentence, let alone critique her mannerisms.
Noting her rise to popularity wouldn't be complete without mentioning her appearance in the Gotye song "Somebody That I Used To Know", where she makes being naked remain classy (sorta NSFW, but I doubt you're reading this at work anyway... but if you are... awesome!).
After you're done listening to that song for the 50th time, let's continue...
It's odd that I chose today to feature her, because it just so happens that her debut album, Vows, came out yesterday, August 29th. You can buy it here now if you're super excited and want the hard copy with the special DVD in your hands as soon as possible, or you can preorder it on iTunes and snag it three days from now digitally.
