Blunt, an award-winning British performer, now has a home and recording studio in Los Angeles, so he's surrounded with real California girls these days.
James Blunt's LIVE performance of "California Gurls" authentically represents the sound he is well-known for --- folkish, sensitive, and expressed very well.
I would venture to say that Blunt's version is more mature, richer, and more pleasing to listeners over 30 years of age.
Blunt does a spectacular job in his onstage performance of a cheesy-yet-successful pop tune --- which he resurrects into one of the great songs about California.
It really belongs on a James Blunt album, honestly, and most fans agree.
Check out the video below and enjoy a rare performance of one of the biggest --- and now best --- California songs ever performed.
