I really hope she promotes the song on The Voice now that there might possibly be enough time. It has charted well, but it would be amazing for her to perform it on The Voice considering the ratings. It would considerably boost the song's performance on the charts.

I agree about singing the song on the Voice. It would be nice exposure. But if she doesn't nail it completely-high note and all- it opens her up for a lot of harsh opinions and critique. How much risk against the possible benefits I don't know how those weigh yet. A different song like the 2nd single would be ideal, but it's probably a little early for that. So basically I don't know. I'd be nervous about it.



Does anyone know how close or far away from double platinum SOTOTW is? Just curious.

I found the girl inside of me that I've been missing for so long.

I told her that I'd never leave...

I hope she doesn't perform it on The Voice. To be honest, her performances so far of the song haven't been up to her usual standard, and her voice hasn't been the best in them. If she does the same on the show (not reaching the high notes, being out of breath), it will only give people further fuel to say that she shouldn't be there.

I thought Today show performance was better than Logies and showcased her talent a lot more. If she did perform it, I was hoping it would be stripped back, but I highly doubt that would be the case. It wouldn't be bad if it was like the Logies performance though and I think she'd do a great job with it if she performed it live on the show.

She could lip sync? hahaha

Nah think it would be best to let sleeping dogs lie for now. Get the next single out I say - show the world she's alive.

Show Australia why she is a mentor/coach on The Voice!

So I stand on this hill
With my flag held high
With the will to survive
Bullets flying by
Broken hears scattered on this battlefield
Holding out for something real
I won't give up
I won't give in
I fight for hope in this
WAR ON LOVE

^ Lip syncing would pretty much finish her career here haha.

I cant believe people dont believe in Delta's strength as a performer! She would do amazingly performing her single on The Voice and bring a lot of exposure to the song. I mean she could sing the second single on The Voice instead, I just think she'll be so busy with the show and her artists that she wont be able to..

She should perform the second single, it makes complete sense:
- Massive exposure for the new single
- Two hits leading into the imminent (then) album release
- SOTOTW is already an established hit, no point in performing it
- She's already performed SOTOTW on a major Australian TV event (The Logies)

It's not that I don't believe in her as a performer. I love the live performances. Most of the time those are my favorite versions. I'm thinking your already on a show where people are tearing you apart for how you flick your hair, whether you have too much bronzer, what words you use, ect. What will they do to a solo performance of a song that is just an extremely difficult song to sing live? I'm not saying that she couldn't do it well. In fact I think she can. I loved the today performance a lot. I'm saying it's a risk.

But the backlash of lip syncing would be far worse then performing it live. Anyone remember the commonwealth games and the was she singing live or not. If we're going down that road then Delta might as well stop singing altogether because whatever she'll do they'll always be criticism. The only way to prove herself would be to sing live.

The song slipped to #15 today which surprises me to see it holding strong at #11 right now with #10 Karise expected to slip for Monday.
I wonder if Delta will slip into the #10 spot for this sixth week - I didnt think it was possible but here we are now. We will see.
I do however think Karise charted so strongly in those 3 days for last week that Delta will be pushed to #11 on the ARIA Charts.

Just watching the hot 30 countdown on tv and delta is at number 5!

That's great!

Rugby League State of Origin enjoys a huge national TV audience (especially in NSW, ACT and QLD) so Delta's live performance on game 1 this Wednesday will prop up her song a bit.

So glad this song has stuck it out. I don't know whether rugby fans will want to buy the song though? Do you think it will transpire well to them?

I'm hoping it does! And anyway it's more promotion for delta which is a good thing!

That is great! The song might not be the biggest number one however, staying on the charts is better then reaching number one for a week and then dropping of the charts all together!


I think it would be best to go ahead with the second single in June/July and the album at the end of July or the middle of August. I don't know if that would work but I do think no matter what I do believe she should go ahead with a second single before the album is sold. I am simply ready for a new song!

My concern is that people won't watch the performance as they may not be interested in what happens pre-kick off. I generally tend not to watch untill kick off time, but I'll make an exception this time for Delta.

EDIT: Adam, you're probably right. They might enjoy SOTOTW if it's not performed acoustically, but I don't think they'd enjoy ITL very much. Hope she doesn't get booed!

Is she really performing SOTOTW at the State of Origin?! :o

She's not just performing the national anthem or something?
