Hey does anyone know - did Duffy play 'Breaking My Own Heart' in it's entirety as I have seen her break off from doing this song twice (saying she wasn't having any fun and stopping and doing something else)....

Wide-eyed Duffy keeps her feet on the ground
May 26 2008 by Karen Price, Western Mail
LESS than a fortnight ago, Duffy was launching her bid for fame in America with a gig at the famous New York Apollo, which goes by the slogan Where stars are born and legends are made.
She appeared to win over the American music fans and just days later her debut album, Rockferry, entered the US billboard chart at number four.
But last night the soul star who has gone from relative unknown to household name in just a few short months was back in her Welsh homeland for a performance at Cardiff University.
And what an occasion it was.
With success now in the bag across the Atlantic, she will soon have to get used to playing some fairly vast auditoriums and even arenas.
But for the moment, the size of venue booked out for her gigs is still catching up with her escalating fame.
The Great Hall at Cardiff University might be bigger than the upstairs room in Clwb Ifor Bach where she performed to a packed crowd of just 220 people last time she was in Cardiff but its hardly the size of Wembley Stadium.
Carry on at this rate though, and its only a matter of time before the captivating soul star is playing to crowds many times larger than were present last night.
Whats refreshing about Duffy is how she carries her growing repute with an endearing modesty and humility.
She still seems entirely approachable and friendly, and behaves in the public eye with the kind of wide-eyed awe of someone still not quite able to grasp the magnitude of what is happening to them.
And its a quality that helps make a connection with the crowd as she performs what feels like a true homecoming gig.
The singer, who at just 23 has already been described as the new Dusty Springfield a tag which she apparently isnt too keen on showcased a selection of songs from Rockferry, which has topped the UK album chart and already shifted more than 600,000 copies.
After keeping her fans waiting for almost 20 minutes, she arrived on stage shout-ing Shwd ych chi, Caerdydd?, before launching into the bluesy ballad Syrup and Honey.
Duffy, wearing a black, white and red prom dress with red high heels, then took things up a gear with album title track Rockferry.
Wow, there are so many of you here, said the Welsh chart-topper.
Its the first night of my tour and its so nice to be back.
She then told us she would be playing a song that would be unfamiliar to many and once again she brought things to a slow pace with the song Scared.
Throughout the night, she continued to perform tracks from her album, including upbeat and hugely catchy chart-topping debut single Mercy to the gorgeous ballad Warwick Avenue, which is released today, Duffy certainly pleased her army of fans, who spent all night cheering her every move.
The hall was packed with people of all ages from young women who clearly see the singer as something of a role model, to older generations of music fans, both men and women, who have all been struck by Duffys remarkable voice and her songwriting talents.
While Cardiff Universitys Great Hall is a rather intimate gigging experience, it was certainly a much larger concert than Duffys last performance in Cardiff back in February.
Understandably, the show was an instant sell-out.
Last nights gig was one of a handful of British dates for the singer, who hails from Nefyn.
On Friday she will be heading back to her native North Wales when she performs for audiences at Venue Cymru in Llandudno.
Despite her new-found fame, it seems she is determined to keep her feet on the ground and she says it was important for her to play venues in Wales.
And judging by last nights performance, her fans will be very glad of that.
