Singer Leona Lewis really gave herself a hand during her first solo concert.

The "Bleeding Love" singer was so nervous that she'd flub her lyrics during her first time performing a full-length concert that she scribbled one-word prompts on her hands to help jog her memory, according to the British newspaper The Daily Mail.

The 24-year-old songbird scrawled key words to remember her new song "Brace" and "The First Time I Ever Saw Your Face," the paper reported.

The songstress who won the British reality TV show "The X Factor" in 2006 was recently attacked during a book singing in London.

"I just want to say thank you so much for coming to support me," she told the crowd. "The first time I ever performed here I was 13, so it seemed fitting for me to come back here."
