The most emotional performance may have been her last acoustic song when she dedicated her chart-topping and pitch-perfect Elton John cover "Your Song" to the late Amy Winehouse. "She was very special and an inspiration to me," Goulding told the crowd. A truly touching moment.
Picking the tempo back up, the band returned on stage for some lively sets including the bittersweet "The Writer." The song received a loud crowd response that added both power and warmth to her performance.
None of this was more evident then during Goulding's performance of "Salt Skin," which the singer broke down with an impressive percussion instrumental.
Goulding turned it up a few notches by mixing in the propulsive vocal track of Kanye West's "Power" that stirred the crowd. Ending her set with her latest single "Lights," Goulding and her band left the stage with the crowd loudly cheering for more, more, more.
As the crowd exploded chanting "Ellie Ellie Ellie," the glowing singer returned to the stage and fed the hungry pop fans what they needed with an intense performance of "Your Biggest Mistake." With the night winding down, Ellie performed her last encore song "Starry Eyed" that garnered her a huge response and was a perfect ending to a flawless show.
While everyone sung and dance in the aisles, the atmosphere was filled with neon glow sticks, smiling faces and nothing but love for the UK singer who is only moments away from a true breakthrough in America.
