Remember this one?

There’s finally a video of it, although it doesn’t show Liam walking off-stage. But it does show the lonely mic stand multiple times until he comes back. You can hear him singing part of his solo in the beginning, he doesn’t sound like his usual self, and he changed lyrics.

The usual lyrics go like, “You tell me that you’re hurt and you’re in pain / and I can see your head is held in shame / but I just wanna see you smile again / see you smile again”.

But Liam sang it “…hurt and you’re in pain / but I can see you finally love again / but I don’t see…”

For reference: he also changed the lyrics for TTD for the second Johannesburg concert as well, there he sang “I can see your heart (in) love again / but I just wanna see you smile again / see you smile again”

In photos: People of Johannesburg march because Foreign Lives Matter

Thousands of people marched through the streets of Johannesburg on Thursday against the spate of xenophobic attacks in KwaZulu-Natal and Johannesburg. The crowd comprised a cross section of society, including different political groups, classes, both locals and migrants. While attacks on foreigners have only occurred in select areas, the march proved that many believe foreign lives matter.

Twelve people were arrested overnight as anti-foreigner attacks in South Africa spread to parts of downtown Johannesburg, police said. According to local reports, the protesters from a local hostel demanded foreign nationals leave South Africa, setting cars alight and clashing with police.  AFP PHOTO/MUJAHID SAFODIEN                        

Bag’s Take-Away:

There are some photos that remind you how lucky children in the U.S. are. This photo of South African girls putting on donated ballet shoes is one of those.

I’m trying to imagine en pointe in ballet shoes three sizes too big for you and I can’t. Still, I’m sure these girls feel lucky to have the equipment.
