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.
