First off, Happy New Year!
I’m betting Elle King is feeling it this morning.
Elle King was one of the performers at the “New Year’s Eve Live: Nashville’s Big Bash” on CBS last night, as well as one of the hosts, and she’s already trending in 2024 due to her performance of “Drunk and I Don’t Wanna Go Home”.
I mean, it’s life imitating art.
Ok, I do love Elle King as an artist, and she seems super fun. The internet is giving her all kinds of hell this morning, but I’m on #teamelle.
It was New Year’s Eve, and she had to much to drink.
Was it the most professional performance? Nah. But did she fall off the stage? Soil herself? Drop F- bombs?
Maybe I’m just sympathetic as I’ve had my share of drunken performances in cover bands in my early twenties. Of course, those were at little bars in the Memphis area, and not on a national televised stage, but still… it happens.
At least she remembered the lyrics and song structure.
Also, this song is originally a duet with Miranda Lambert, so maybe that’s also part of the problem. It needs Miranda on it to make it really pop.
Either way, I don’t see the big issue, as long as she doesn’t make a habit of drunken performances.
It was New Year’s Eve, she was singing a drinking song… let it go.
Also, her outfit is badass.
Cheers to 2024, and try not being a hater, ok?
