The striking thing about Avril Lavigne is that although she's only 17, she is extremely talented . . . and cute too!
However, the night belongs to Avril - now well known radio favourite with the hit single Complicated. Wasting no time, Avril and her band members (all looking a few years older then her) come onto the stage playing the new single Sk8er Boi.
From the second that she steps out and sings, there's clear evidence that Lavigne is well and truly capable of carry her own live gigs. She's on stage jumping hyperactively while singing, then she's making her way into the crowd to interact with the audience. Moving on to play Nobody's Fool and Losing Grip, Avril continues to show the crowd that she is no stranger to live shows, displaying both charisma and a promising talent.
After performing Tomorrow for the encore, Lavigne and the band ask the crowd to suggest what to play next. This leads to them unpredictably recreating - in a fun and enjoyable way - System Of A Down's Chop Suey!. The final song, Things I'll Never Say, ends the show on a positive note.
