christina 45 Christina Aguilera Performs In New York

While Lady GaGa was dominating the MTV VMAs last evening, Christina Aguilera was far away in New York City. The singer performed John Lennon’s ‘Imagine’ at Jazz at Lincoln Centre for the launch of the Montblanc John Lennon Edition writing instrument. Check out her full performance below:

As usual Aguilera added a series of unnecessary vocal runs in her effort to show off her voice. There is a difference between making your song your own and exaggerating every note; ruining the composition of the original in the process. Somebody needs to sit her down and let her know that, like her ‘Not Myself Tonight’ video, she is trying way too hard.

Thoughts?

    Just a head’s up – she performed in The Allen Room, which is part of Jazz at Lincoln Center (big difference from Lincoln Center, where Fashion Week is currently taking place). I was in attendance – the event was cool. Eh, Christina… Comme Ci Comme Ça.

    How Ironic that Christina is singing a song that advocates peace and co-existence no matter the difference.. This is the same girl who threw gum at her fans. This is the same girl who demanded that Mary J blige bow down to her. This is a woman with an ego the size of this world, and I don’t exaggerate. I hope she learns that treating your follow human beings with respect and dignity goes a long way. I have never rejoiced at someone’s failure as much as I did Christina’s. How about “Bionic” LMAO

    *Sigh* Christina has a BEAUTIFUL voice she really does, but she just doesn’t know what to do with it. She has NO MUSICALITY. She’s been doing those same runs to cover up her straining since her debut. I want to lock her in a room playing nothing but Nina Simone and Ella Fitzgerald.

    I knew her performance was not going to be any different from rehearsals for the song. She sounded like crap, and even lost her breath during the 46-52 mark. All throughout the song you can hear her struggling with trying to breathe.

    There are few singers who can actually turn a song into their own, and sing anything. Christina isn’t one of them.

    The vocal runs were really unnecessary. Did she hear John do all that s*** in his song? Granted, he didn’t have the voice for it, but if he did, I’m sure that he would know not to overdo it. Linda always warns her not overdo it, but she still insists otherwise…SMH. But that’s not to say that she’s never given a perfectly subtle performance, it’s just that unfortunately there are far less of them then the ones where she sounds like she’s competing at the Vocal Olympics.

    And rubbing in Lady Gaga on every X-Tina post is getting pretty damn old, Trent. I’m sure that at worst, they would not give a flying f*** about each other if they personally ran into each other. There would be no newsworthy catfight like you would hope. You’re so lame trying to start drama where there isn’t. It was lame back in 1999 when it was Britney vs. X-Tina, and it’s even lamer now.

    On another note, THIS is how you cover a John Lennon song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wGc0PqKBnno&feature=related

    The video @ Letterman was ok because her lower register was awesome, but in between she threw in those runs. That video (I Love You Porgy) was the VERY best I have EVER heard from her live. Again, her lower register was amazing. It sounded like a recording up until her infamous YAH, YAH, YAAAAHHHH at the end. I actually closed my eyes and was blown away until the 3:07 mark and then it elevated (not in a good way) at around the 3:20-3:25 mark. It’s like her trademark that should GO AWAY! But it’s definitely too late for that now. Dang! Smh.

    She can still sing very well. She just can’t strain her voice to the point that her throat threatens to pop right out of her mouth anymore like she used to. But yeah, the runs are still annoying. Did anyone hear her f*** up “Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas”? I’m mainly accustomed to Judy Garland’s version, and she’s one of my favorite singers EVER as well, so to hear Christina butcher a classic really disappointed me.

    Sorry to say this was not a great performance.

    Christina really needed to learn how to control her voice and not let it over power a song that was meat to be sung simple and gentle.

    Even Madonna, who is not an amazing vocalist, did a better job of this song when she performed it live in 2004.

    Check out her simple acoustic version which worked better. Christina should have done the same.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EP5OhMXd8S4&feature=related

    It has so much more impact than Christina’s version. Christina should know by now that it’s not always about showing off her voice. It’s all about presentation and this song was over performed….

    Facts…. That voice sounds good still. Head voice to chest is still smooth. No breathiness like these other b******. she expresses herself thru runs and she is not the only one. Fanny runs a hell of a lot and so does Beyonce. Power Vocals are not liked or understood by this generation that only knows studio shower voices.

    She sounded good, she did it her way. Mariah and the rest of the artists have nothing to do with this performance. Mariah has delivered tons of spectacular performances.

    Wow, this girl gets hated on big time. I guess her rendition of something’s got a hold on me was bad too, huh? That’s what happens when you are the voice. Funny how the people who actually heard it in person loved it, judging from the applause. The hate is because no matter what, you can’t take this girl’s talent away from her. She’s got it. Any1 else out today you can make or break, but not her. Chrissy keep doing you. All of the jealousy only elevates you and when the industry gets it’s senses, you’ll be on top again!!! You know you’re doing good when the bloggers keep writing about you because you get the most response. I love it

    I was ready to hate on Trent…. saying he was just a hater… but i’m sorry… Christina over-did it here! imo, she turned a simple, beautiful song and turned it into a mess… (and for the idiots out there.. i’m a true fan… i can admit when she didn’t turn in her best performances… and this is one of those times…)… i love when artists make songs their own… add a little flair… but here Christina just felt the need to over sing the end of EVERY line… totally unnecessary.

    Y’ALL DID THE SAME THING TO BRITNEY SPEARS AND THAT’S HOW SHE HAD HER

    MELTDOWN! Y’ALL DID NOTHING BUT OSTRACIZE HER AND DRAG HER NAME THRU

    THE MUD, BUT THEN ALL OF A SUDDEN, YOU STARTED PITYING HER AND GAVE HER

    A CHANCE TO COME BACK!

    NOW Y’ALL ARE TRYING TO DO THE SAME THING WITH CHRISTINA BUT GUESS WHAT

    YOUR NEGATIVE OPINIONS ABOUT CHRISTINA ISN’T GOING TO CAUSE HER TO

    BREAKDOWN NOR IS SHE GOING ANYWHERE!

    CHRISTINA IS HERE TO STAY!

    IT’S SO FUNNY HOW Y’ALL USE TO SAY THAT CHRISTINA HAS SUCH A BEAUTIFUL

    VOICE ETC….AND THAT NOBODY COULD TOUCH HER TALENT, NOW Y’ALL WANT

    TO THROW HER IN THE DUMPSTER? WHAT FOR?

    EVERYBODY IN THE INDUSTRY HAS A BAD ATTITUDE AND EVERYBODY ALWAYS

    TALKING s*** ABOUT SOMEBODY ELSE!

    JUST THINK OF THIS….CHRISTINA’S NEVER BEEN LOCKED UP, HAD A DRUG PROB,

    BEEN A HOMEWRECKER LET ALONE BEEN IN THE MIDDLE OF AN AFFAIR, SHE STILL

    HAS CUSTODY OF HER CHILD, SHE’S BEEN MARRIED FOR ALMOST 5 YEARS, AND

    SHE HASN’T GONE CRAZY! WHATS THE PROBLEM WITH HER THEN?

    I laughed about the people who trashes Christina like if they really know her and tell stories about how she did this and said that because they spent they entire stupid life in front of the computer or reading tabloids and freaking magazines. And to the ones who are really obsess with her and writing every little thing to leave her as the “bad girl” one can tell are gaga fans, you’re more obsess with Christina than Gaga is so pathetic…go back to her board and keep writing about how cooool is she…to the guy with the Beyonce comment hahaha you’re hilarious, beyonce’s music is the same since destiny’s child, so boring, i’m sorry , is just my opinion. Can’t stand If i were a boy and that kind of songs…like Pink’s stupid girls…just annoying as hell! I think Christina needs to come back at least every 2 years or 3 with a new album, she takes too long breaks and i think this oversinging is because she’s nervous and that’s her way of dealing with that, you can’t come back every 4 years and think that everything is going to fit like a glove. You need to rehearse a lot before releasing an album and i think that she thought that this era it wouldn’t cost her as much as it did… i like bionic but i would it love to listen more songs like Birds Of Prey, and with ladytron, goldfrapp and le tigre…

    Christina is a great singer, but this performance is a perfect example of how she prioritizes her ego over interpretation.

    For those of you who don’t know, “Imagine” is a classic song, understated melodically and vocally to underscore the simple beauty of its message.

    Eva Cassidy did a great, tender rendition of the song when she was alive. Gaga even did a nice rendition recently.

    In contrast, Christina showboated all over the song…Linda Perry wasn’t kidding when she said Xtina is most comfortable in her belt-yelling style! A belt or run here and there would have been nice, as in her Haiti benefit “Lift Me Up” performance; instead, she let her insecurity get the best of her, and the song became about “look how loud and agile I can be” rather than simply feeling the song and its message.

    Christina’s boisterous style was perfect for “It’s a Man’s World.” Her performance was a tribute to James Brown, a man who was all about big singing and throne claiming! For a Lennon song, she should have shown more restraint.

    It’s too bad; this could have been truly great.

    @that flop juice

    nope, im an xtina fan and this is just tooooo much.

    the whole point of the damn song is to be soft and gentle. Lady Gaga did this song and it was WAAAAAAAAAAAAY better and showed the beauty of both the lyrics and the image it presents.

    Remakes are still supposed to remain true to the original. The subtlety and beauty of the song was totally overshadowed by her noticably overdone vocals.

    AND WHOEVER THE f*** THINKS THAT MARIAH HASN’T TURNED OUT A PERFORMANCE LIKE THIS. GO TO HELL! LOOK UP ANY SONG SHE SLAYED AT BRAZIL, AND YOU CAN SHUT THE f*** UP. THEY WERE ALL SOLID. I STILL BELIEVE, MY ALL, WE BELONG TOGETHER, EVEN IWKWLI. ALL BETTER THAN THIS OVERDONE PERFORMANCE XTINA PUT OUT.

    Kevin first of all xtina never said she was gonna sing it lemons way she said its a classic why the full would she sing it like him. This is how she wanted to pay tribute for all the reviews I read not these haters who hate on her but the press actually gave her great reviews how she did the song justice and lemon would be proud.

    @ only1kene…

    britney was at the beginning of her meltdown when the media began trashing her ( of course, trashing her didn’t help, i’m sure). when the media saw her career headed toward a metoric crash they shifted grears into overhype and haven’t down shifted since.

    you say, NOW, they’re trashing christina! i say they started in on christina after she won the grammy for best new artist and made britney’s future trashing look like praise. it was obvious whose team they were on (still on) between christina and britney.

    i can’t believe how christina is able to take the stage and give awsome performances knowing the press will hate on her or ignore her altogether ( too much newsworthy britney in a bikini to report…lol).

    comparing artists always has been and always will be. it’s just foul when it’s done unfairly such as with christina and lady gaga. she got the gaga copycat label hung on her even though gaga was jacking as much from christina as vice versa. not to mention, lgg was ripping off COUNTLESS others. i think lgg is talented and it’s ok to compare the two as long as you give christina deserved credit (yeah…that’ll happen)!

    i’m a big christina fan but i do wish she would display fewer voice acrobatics (she did it on i love you porgy…one of her best performances, ever )!!!
