Ke$ha Performs ‘Tik Tok’ On Ellen

2009 breakout star Ke$ha performed her worldwide smash ‘Tik Tok’ on The Ellen Degeneres Show earlier this week. You can peep her live showing above.

Despite the 22 year old’s success with the song, which has seen her make download history, I’ve yet to see what the hype is all about. Put simply, while the song is hella catchy, I simply don’t ‘believe’ the image etc she’s trying to sell; it all comes across as rather contrived and insincere IMO (I say this having listened to her ‘Animal’ LP too).

With that said, I’m sure similar sentiments were expressed by many when Lady GaGa hit the scene and we all know what eventually became of her. It’ll be interesting to see how things unfold with Ms. Ke$ha.

Your thoughts?

    well if Kesha is takin Gaga’s spot, then true artistry is dying. becuz behind the outfits and make-up, Gaga can sing, and she can play the piano…and Kesha is the biggest gimmick i’ve seen yet…

    Anyway, the song is cool….but number 1…..what the hell??? but hey, make that paper

    I agree Mr. T, KeSha is nothing but a gimmick in my opinion. She said that her song surprisingly took off and she stoped waiting tables at a restaurant. It was nothing but luck. Then she signed to a major label and made 15 songs about the same thing that all sound a mess except for the beats themselves. People are going to compare her to Gaga, but I think Gaga is more artisitic and creative, rather than a contrived wannabe. And regarding that album, if 8 and 9 year olds are going to be buying that, American youth will continue to go down the drain. Her messages are just about getting drunk and doing stupid things under the influence.

    Sam, you and everyone else can say what you want about ke$ha, but her career so far is extremely interesting.

    Never mind the digital download record for TiK ToK — that was widely expected — and never mind the fact that Just Dance oh so similarly hit the top of the charts and broke a digital download record during the same week.

    Let’s talk about the fact that Miss ke$ha has a #1 album on iTunes and is very near the #1 spot according to HitsDailyDouble for next week. What kind of “One Hit Wonder” has ever done that — Lady Gaga has NEVER hit #1, even in a non-competitive first week of sales.

    ke$ha may be a write-off to you, but the American youth, myself being one of them, can relate to her music and her style. She may be over-the-top, but what is an ‘artist’ without over-the-top. Keep your eyes on this one, Sam, you’ll be raving about her when her career explodes this year.

    Perez Hilton has already jumped on the bandwagon and critics are not giving scathing reviews of the album as expected. I fully expect you, Sam, to jump on the bandwagon in a few months when she’s already headed for her 3rd #1.

    I will not be jumping on the Kesha bandwagon. I absolutely hate her singing and this song is so annoying. I’m sorry, but this girl is no Gaga.

    I don’t see any comparison with Lady GaGa whatsoever. Kesha is like a coke-head version of Avril Lavigne – they just don’t appeal to the same audience. The only other comparison I see is Tiffany, because they’re both the epitome of ‘ MALL RAT’ for their era. I think she’ll have decent success with this album then fade away. She is a talented songwriter and producer, so she’ll probably have success in that field.

    Why when someone comes out yall always got to compare it to the last person with a hit? This chick has nothing in common with Gaga other than they are both white women in makeup. With that being said this chick’s voice is annoying as well as that song. People these days clearly have no standards. This s*** is number one? Same electronic s*** that everyone is coming out with. Enough its overkill now. I doubt this chick will last that long. I would be surprised though.

    I decided to give her a chance. Prior to this, I have never heard the song its entirety and yet I’m still sick of hearing it. This is the first time I listened to the song and its worse than I feared. Her voice is annoying. It reminds of me of teenage/college girls who talk in that “OH MY GOD!” type voice and use the word “like” every 5 seconds (you know what I’m talking about). And I’m sure its those same people who are buying the track. I do like the beat, but her voice is unbearable. It sounds like she’s talking rather than singing.

    As a side note, I don’t understand why people are comparing her to Lady GaGa. GaGa can actually sing extremely well, is a great performer and is very creative in all aspects of her musical career. Enough said.

    I feel like the vocals were kinda not too impressive.

    She needs two girl backup dancers/singers, 1 looked odd and the guitarist do some of the moves, HA HA!

    I like “TiK ToK” but songs I listened to off the album not so impressed by first listens… but it is sellin cheap on iTunes, that’s the way2go!

    After seeing Kesha on It’s On With Alexa Chung, I also thought that her image was contrived. She’s going for this edgy, Lady Gaga-esque look. It doesn’t work for me. Love the song, but she seems inauthentic, unlike Lady Gaga IMO.

    Why do most of the songs on her album sound like “Tik Tok” remixes? I personally hate the song, but , then again, I’m not her target audience as I am not 13. Music is a business. If some record exec thinks it will sell and it does, it will be made regardless of the quality.

    When some of the best singers and most talented song writers can’t even get in the top 10 yet a song that is 100% auto-tuned that has a one-word hook can be #1 for 3 months (I just made all that up as I don’t know of any song that fits that but you get the idea), the only thing you can do is start looking for independent artists.

    Wat rubbish, why da need to compare Kesha to Gaga???. Der is enough room for everyone, 2009 was GAGA’S breakthrough year, n 2010 can be kesha’s breakthrough year.

    n un-informed fucks talking s*** about Gaga , I dn’t get the haterz assumption dat since kesha is doing well dat means gaga isn’t..like wtf, well GaGA is also doing really well.

    br=#1 song in the world for 5 consecutive weeks
    br=peaked at #1 on numerous countries itunes, including america where it stayed #1 for 4 weeks.
    br=Peaked #1 on billboard digital songs
    br= # 2 on us billboard hot 100..n #1 in other countries
    br= lady gaga’s…3 uk 1#. in a year…she is da first female atrist to eva achieve dat.
    br=Peaked # 1 on America n many other countries itunes with the video n album da fame monster
    br= Gaga ON THE 5 JANUARY..went to #1 on the pop radio billboard chart..making it ..5 consecutive radio #1′s for gaga, the record is held by mariah with 6…but with the release of telephone..gaga will definitely reach mariah.
    Monsters BALL= sold out world tour
    Both the fame monster n da fame in the top 20 selling albums
    n the fame reached a new peak after all this tym..peaking at #2 dis week.

    I really don’t know…how dat all means lady gaga’s “15 minutes r ova” …talented lady gaga n 15 minutes should neva be mentioned in the same sentence.

    n gaga fans hating on kesha like wtf!!!!…let the girl have her shine…der is plently of room for all.

    I can’t believe someone called GaGa a gimmick and praised Kesha!
    This performance is really substandard for one… Where’s the feeling?
    Kesha is riding the electropop craze, and if you’ve heard her album, there’s only a few good songs on it. The only thing to compare them both is they’re electropop. After that they have nothing in common. It’s like comparing Jay-Z with Kesha. No more gimmicks she’s kicking J’s ass. Right.
