Christina Perri, "Jar of Hearts"

Track Review

"So You Think You Can Dance" host Cat Deeley said, "I think we've discovered another future superstar," when Christina Perri performed her premiere single, "Jar of Hearts," during the July 15 results show-and she may be on to something. The tattooed Philadelphia native is making quite a name for herself with the piano ballad, which is an emotive warning to Perri's ex-lover who wishes to go for round two of "tearing love apart." The gentle, winding piano melody is blended beautifully with Perri's raspy A Fine Frenzy-esque vocals that hauntingly spill her broken heart out to the world with lines like, "I wish I had missed the first time that we kissed, because you broke all of your promises." The single sets up eager anticipation for her debut album that will be released via her brand-new deal with Atlantic Records.
