    I love Emeli Sande but I must say, the approach with her debut album in the U.S. has been interesting to say the least. I remember a year ago now she was on David Letterman and Conan performing this song and now here she is a year later performing the SAME song on Leno. They must really want this to become a hit. I’m not complaining though becasue the song deserves to be a hit and Emeli deserves to be a STAR. Her album really is amazing.

    @Kyle, It has to do with marketing strategies. Last year the album received a limited release in the states and was hardly promoted in full. It did so well in the UK, so this is the attempt for a full US promotion.
