[Photo Story] Natasha Bedingfield Releases Her Inhibitions At THON 2023

Singer-songwriter Natasha Bedingfield took the stage Friday night of THON Weekend as the surprise guest performer.

The British pop star really brought her “Pocketful of Sunshine” to the Bryce Jordan Center, as some might say.

She wore a shiny blue skirt and sheer top, accessorized with red platform heels and a bucket hat. While slightly resembling Papa Smurf, she made it work. After all, beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

The early 2000s icon brought the energy, and the crowd mimicked her spirit. One THON dancer quite literally couldn’t contain himself.

Bedingfield gave Hailey’s Biebers bob a run for its money. She whipped her blonde locks all around the BJC.

It was no surprise that the crowd knew every lyric to hits like “Pocketful of Sunshine” and “Unwritten.”

~Release your inhibitions // Feel the rain on your skin~
