The Queen of Hip-Hop/Soul, Mary J. Blige, took the stage on ‘So you Think You Can Dance‘ a few minutes ago. The singer performed ‘I Am‘, the second single from her upcoming album, ‘Stronger With Each Tear’. Blige’s new LP hits stores on December 21st.

Ever time Blige takes the stage to perform this song, she brings new life to the lyrics. This was certainly a strong performance and she demonstrated excellent control over her instrument. Well done Mary.

Thoughts?

    MARY KILLED THAT…TO SAY RIHANNA, AMERIE, OR BEYONCE WOULD KILL A MARY J BLIGE SONG SHOWS HOW MORONIC THESE YOUNG KIDS ARE. THAT’S THE SILLIEST THING SINCE LIL MAMA INTERUPTING THE VMA’s. MARY IS A LEGEND WHO HAS BEEN IN THE GAME FOR 20YEARS AND SHE’S CREATED SONGS THAT HAVE BEEN SAMPLED, COVERED, AND SONG ON AMERICAN IDOL, MOVIES ETC…NONE OF THOSE FEMALES HAVE OTHERS SAMPELING THEIR MUSIC NOR HAS THEIR SONG BEEN CONSIDERED “LEGENDARY” THOSE FEMALES ARE MAKING POPCORN MUSIC THAT’S NOT GOING TO BE HERE 10YEARS FROM NOW…THE ONLY SONG THAT’S GOING TO BE HERE IS BEYONCE’S “SINGLE LADIES”, ONLY BECAUSE IT WAS A CULTUREL MOVEMENT WITH YOUTUBE AND STUFF…OTHER THAN THAT THE SONG ISN’T ALL THAT GREAT.

    THE PERFORMANCE WAS A BIT BLAND, BUT I AGREE WITH MR. JAMES…MARY IS A LEGEN…SHE’S CREDITED FOR CREATING A GENRE “HIP-HOP SOUL”, WHICH IS WHY SHE’S CALLED THE QUEEN OF THAT GENRE…AND (ACCORDING TO STATISTICS) HIP-HOP SOUL IS THE 2ND BEST SELLING GENRE, WHICH MEANS BEYONCE, AMERIE, AND RIHANNA ARE ALLLLLLL SINGING THE MELODY MARY CREATED…SHE’S OLDER, BUT HAS REAL VOCALS, SWAG, AND STAGE PRESENCE…MARYS MOST RECENT ON OPRAH WAS/IS BEING CONSIDERED ICONIC.

    James, Marys old no one cares about that b*tch any more. Rihanna would have brought her fashion game with her and slayed. Rater R sh*its on anything Mary has done. Don’t worry Rihanna’s day will be come will be will see her as legendary.

    Jane doe your obviously jealous of Rihanna. And your low for practically woshing someone dead. Mary’s the dusty one here, with her old ass. She needs to sit down and get a zimmer frame or something. Her time is wayyyyyy over. Rihanna’s had more popular hits than mary. Ask anyone on the streets and they prob struggle to even name 2 mary hits. I’d rather see Cassie up there singing than mary. I likes cassie’s ton in her voice .

    Great performance..everyone is entitled to who they like..but Mary definitely killed it..to bad Rihanna nor Cassie will be around long enough to even be considered Legends they’ve pretty much showed what they were good for and it included no clothes..let’s see how far that gets them..also loved the different eras of Mary in the background…

    what y’all have with cassie? she had one hit single, one floppy album and thats 4 years ago….

    nearly most of the people know who rihanna is, but they dont remember cassie…maybe “me & u”, but not cassie…

    and mary is an album musician…her cds were all great!
    dont compare them, cause they make different music

    and when 38 is that old, then i bet y’all are going to shoot yourselves with 35!

    Some of yall r so ignorant, because there is no way that you could compare Rihanna to MJB!!!! They are in 2 separate genres, and they have their own styles! Yes, maybe Beyonce could have ripped that song, but nobody could sing that song like MJB!!! So just leave her alone!!!

    How can anyone say that Mary needs to sit and let other artist sing. Mary is a great singer and maybe on her performance she still does the things that she did when she first came into the music business,but she is a great singer by far. She has open doors for a lot of these Keshia Cole, Jazime Sutterman etc. Also I am a big fan of Mary & Beyonce but I think I perfer this song with Mary not saying that Beyonce won’t kill it because if it were her song she would have killed the song and left no stones unturn. Now Rihanna voice wise oh no,but fashion wise oh yes. First of all Mary really brings soul to all her music and no one can take that from Mary. Mary, Beyonce are legends in their own rights and should never ever be compare with the likes of Rihanna,Cassie,Ciara etc.

    @Sammy I respect your opinion but Cassie is terrible…after her mediocre performance on 106 and Park…I haven’t seen her perform anywhere else…unlike Mary the song hasnt been out a whole month and she’s made more appearances than Cassie has almost her whole career…it’s a good thing U and Diddy believe in her cause no one else sure does

    You lot know I’m right about Cassie. i don’t care how many Albums Mary’s wrinkly dusty ass sold. In a few years time we know that Cassie will be more relevant. Mary’s new album probably gonaa flop hahahahaah. I never even hear people talking about Mary. I see Cassie a few months back being on radio shows etc, but nothing about Mary.
