VH1’s knuckle-clenching Stop/Watch is back for another lighting fast round, and this week’s contender is Cher Lloyd! The pint-size Brit is slaying with her latest smash “Sirens” from her album Sorry I’m Late. Can Lloyd beat the clock and belt out her song in 60 seconds? Let’s find out!
The track is a major departure from her 2012 hit “Want U Back.” The 20-year-old traded in tongue-in-cheek pop kitsch for raw adult emotions. And the critics are on board: Idolator declared “the swagger jagger is back” with “Sirens” and that the track was “worth the wait.”
Armed with nothing but a microphone, guitarist and killer outfit, Lloyd jumped into the Stop/Watch hot seat and put her skills to the test. While she didn’t finish the whole song, we commend Lloyd for remaining diva-tastic throughout the challenge. Plus her fantastic voice and overall adorable charm make her a winner under any circumstances, really.
Check out the video above. If it tickles your fancy, watch Lloyd’s Stop/Watch “Rapid-Fire” round here, where we see if she can answer our questions in under 15 seconds.
