Conor Maynard is currently enjoying mainstream success in Europe producing four consecutive Top 40 hits on major European Music Charts. Needless to say, his best release yet was Turn Around which was penned by Ne-Yo and based on some blog entries the song was shortlisted to appear on NeYo's R.E.D. album but he instead gave it to Conor and featured himself - Conor is NeYo's protege. The 20-Year Old R&B/Pop singer first rose to fame due to countless Covers on YouTube which raked millions of hits worlwide, some of the Covers that I personally love are Starships and Don't You Worry Child.
The first live performance for the song was during his stint on VEVO Lift UK mid-2012 and to conceal his inability to pull the chorus part, the whole song's bass was totally loud and he was selectively singing the parts he was able to do. After that, his MOBO performance was a hot mess but the worst live version was on a French Radio Station, no loud music, no back up vocals - just him - and it was totally awful and beyond mortifying. The only instance he was able to get close to the album version, vocal-wise, was during his Top of the Pops performance.
Conor must be really happy right now that the promotion of the song was over as he moved on to a Wiley featured Animal. I know that there are just two things that annoy him the most - being compared to Justin Bieber and singing Turn Around live.
