“Let It Go” by Demi Lovato

Demi Lovato was basically given the impossible task of outdoing Idina Menzel on her own signature showstopper, and while she is clearly trying her best here, she still comes off as severely underpowered in comparison. Worse, the song loses a lot of its impact when it’s delivered as a pop tune rather than the dramatic number it was in the movie. This certainly isn’t a disaster on the level of Lovato’s previous hit, “Heart Attack”, and it’s not really Lovato’s fault (as stated, no-one could have pulled this off), but it does represent another career disappointment from her 2012-2014 “slump” period.

Verdict: Not awful, just disappointing and kind of redundant.
