Natalie La Rose & Jeremih perform ‘Somebody’ on ‘Ellen’...

Breakout Dutch star Natalie La Rose made her national television debut on 'The Ellen DeGeneres Show' on Wednesday, performing her hit single ‘Somebody’ with Jeremih. 

I don't get the Tinashe comparisons. People pit them against each other because they sing, dance and have a similar look. 

But when Tinashe first came out, people said she was jacking Ciara.

Then when Ciara came out, she was accused of jacking Aaliyah. And then of course it all dates back to Aaliyah's idol Janet Jackson who did it first as an overall black female entertainer. No one is original these days so just enjoy the music for what it is. 

The song, which is a catchy interpolation of Whitney Houston's 'Wanna Dance With Somebody' sits at #10 on the Billboard Hot 100. It's not my cup of tea but it's radio friendly and she's a decent performer. She just needs some work on her live vocals. As this was her first TV performance and she has plenty of time to improve, I will cut her some slack.
