Avril Lavigne on The Late Late Show with James Corden on April 29, 2019.

Avril Lavigne let her emotions spill all over Stage 56 on Monday night (April 29) when she performed a dark ballad from her Head Above Water album on The Late Late Show. Rocking sparkly red tights and a Ramones-like t-shirt under a long black jacket, the singer was bathed in crimson light as she leaned into the song's dark chorus: "I fell in love with the devil/ I'm underneath his spell/ Someone send me an angel/ To lend me a halo."

Her smoky voice rising above the five-piece band's dark thrum, Lavigne smiled through the heartbreak lyrics of the song from her first album in more than four years. After struggling for several years with a crippling Lyme disease diagnosis and a divorce from Nickelback singer Chad Kroeger, Lavigne was clearly back in her element, rocking the stage with her signature dark, poppy energy.
