Watch: Ciara Performs ‘Sorry’ In South Africa

Published: Monday 1st Oct 2012 by Sam

With US Urban radio continuing its embrace of Ciara‘s ‘Sorry’, the sultry songstress has taken the track International – performing it during a high-profile show in South Africa last night.

How did she fare? The answer awaits after the jump…

Clearly more an “introduction” to the track than a full-on “Ciara showcase”, we’re thinking this could have probably waited until the necessary bells and whistles were put into place to ensure it lived up to her usual stage-blazing standards. Still, technically not a “bad”.

Your thoughts?

    She SLAYED! Not her best vocally, but it was her first time! Good job, Ci!

    • CURLY SUE October 1, 2012

      What does that have to do with anything? She’s been in the business for 8 years. That’s no excuse lmao!!!

  4. jame October 1, 2012

    im in love with this song, but i just wish her voice was more showcased here….she looked like she was struggling alot, and i want her to come back stronger than that

    • Mb92 October 1, 2012

      I don’t Ciara’s good at projecting her voice over the production, however accapella did sound nice!

      • Mb92 October 1, 2012

        *think*

  5. imusicjunkie October 1, 2012

    When she sang acapella > beautiful

  6. CrystalWard October 1, 2012

    I LOVED IT!!!!!!!!!!! BUT AFRICA NEED TO GET THEY AUDIO TOGETHER…AS FAR AS HER SHE DID GREAT!!! I BOUGHT IT ON ITUNES!

  7. Me October 1, 2012

    Acapella was great, but im sure she’s gonna kill the real first live performance of Sorry

  8. mkigz October 1, 2012

    That acapella towards the end was one of the best I have heard her sing live – Keep it up Ciara! x

  9. wrinkle flop ora October 1, 2012

    how is her song doing on iTunes?

    • BEYFLOP GIVE KING RIH THE MUTHA-F****** CROWN U THIRSTY B****!!!!! October 1, 2012

      Um it aint even in the top twenty!! But DIAMONDS IS NO. ONE ALL OVER THE WORLD!!!!!!

      • BEYFLOP GIVE KING RIH THE MUTHA-F****** CROWN U THIRSTY B****!!!!! October 1, 2012

        Sorry it aint even in the top 50!!

      • Sleazy October 1, 2012

        Kelly why are speaking to yourself? Uhm anyway Ciara peaked within the top 40 stayed there for a few days and is #72 now plus You can’t Compare SIA generic Straight up Pop ballad to a RnB song? Are dumb your ass should know Pop and dance are the IN thing right now so for Ciara to peak within top 40 for a RNB song is good considering there’s only 3 RNB songs on the top 100 last I checked (Ciara. Alicia and miguel)

    • FAF October 1, 2012

      how is Rihanna nivea endorsement going?

      • KING-BREEZYONCÉ October 2, 2012

        @FAF: GURL!!!!!! 😆

  10. christinastherealtalent October 1, 2012

    I don’t know why she isn’t promoting the damn song in the US because its already falling out of itunes. I don’t think South Africa gives a s*** about her much less any song that is not dancey. I love the song but if you really want to climb your way back to the top you need to promote your new music in the states first.

    • Lightning October 1, 2012

      Ciara is pretty Big here How can You say they don’t care when she was at 1 of their biggest events (I live there) so I know

    • Africa’s Best October 1, 2012

      Yes she should promote it in the US but we F**** with ciara in Africa.We love her! we care about her! 🙂

  11. Monstarebel October 1, 2012

    A lil vocal improvement I see still ain’t gon cut it… sorry is dyeing it will be out the us iTunes soon I think its like at 70 something right now smh lol

    • FAF October 1, 2012

      WHY U CHECKING ON THE QUEEN? LETS SEE WHAT # RISHITTA ALBUM GO TO ….LOL

  12. RoyalKev October 1, 2012

    Cici gets a bad rep! She’s maybe more of a dancer than a vocalist, but she has a naturally pleasant singing voice. There’s definitely some artists around who do a lot worse!

  13. Ernest October 1, 2012

    This wasn’t bad but it wasn’t that good either. She shouldn’t sing slow songs. Her vocals did improve tho. It was aite

    • FAF October 1, 2012

      F*** HER BIGGEST HIT “PROMISE” WAS A SLOW SONG

  14. Oh My October 1, 2012

    No no no…sorry but her live performances are horrid if she isn’t dancing. No way would i spend money to hear her sing live. i sound better then that when i am trying to sing in the shower. She should of had a dance song as her first song so she could dance to it as she tries to sing. The dancing would take you away from her weak vocals. Good luck.

    • jazzyd October 1, 2012

      b**** shut the f*** up good luck to you

      • Oh My October 1, 2012

        You mad??? lmao Good luck CiCI

  15. Lightning October 1, 2012

    Ciara had technical difficulties at the show Their mics didn’t work (shame on you S.A) she had to make a Plan and used the Dj mic When she performs on Tv will be better tho…. Do not compare Diamonds to Sorry! Sorry is a RnB song Diamonds is a straight up generic pop mid tempo

    • FAF October 1, 2012

      A song R**** didn’t even help write.. DEAD

      no writing

      no performing skills
      POOR RISHITTA no #1 album !

    • CURLY SUE October 1, 2012

      Excuses! She sounded GOD-AWFUL!!!! Where’s the Gong when you need it?????????

      • Oh My October 1, 2012

        Bahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh! lmao

  16. Sleazy October 1, 2012

    Okay So why are people comparing a RnB ballad to a Pop midtempo Sia song I mean rihanna is obviously gonna do better HELLO its POP use your brain for once in your life

  17. Sarah Says October 1, 2012

    I’m not feeling the rehashed Fantasy Ride superhero outfit. I’m also not here for the weak vocals. This is a ballad, she should be able to just stand and sing the song without gyrating and a wind machine. I thought it was bad with the overpowering backing track, but the acapella was just no!

  18. TRUTH SERUM October 1, 2012

    DRY B**** DRY….

    HER VOCALS WERE ON LOW TUMBLE IN THE DRYER…

    LIKE WHAT MAKES YOU THINK YOU’RE A VOCALIST…

    LIKE HAVE A SEAT, STICK TO DANCING… SINGING ISN’T YOUR CALLING…

    IF CIARA WAS SMART, SHE WOULD TRY TO BECOME THE NEXT PAULA ABDUL…

    SHE MADE “AND I” LOOK LIKE “VISION OF LOVE”…. I CAN’T….

    • FAF October 1, 2012

      WHAT ARE U TALKING ABOUT F***? VISION OF LOVE? THATS A MARIAH SONG.. LEARN UR ARTISTS, U PEASSY HEADED FLOP !

      • my hip, my back October 1, 2012

        where did the person say vision of love wasn’t a mimi song? learn to read.

  19. WaitUrTurn88 October 1, 2012

    EXCUSES, EXCUSES, EXCUSES …….ITS NOT THAT ITS A R N B , THE SONG SUCKS AND HER VOCALS R HORRID!……RIRI WENT NUMBER 1 WITH “TAKE A BOW” AND THATS A R N B SONG……SHE JUST NEED TO GIVE IT UP AND BE A SOCIALITE LIKE KIM K AND LALA ……#SORRY FLOP!!!!

    • FAF October 1, 2012

  26. SuxMyCockieness October 1, 2012

    I don’t see how any of the 5 members of the “C-SQUAD” can try to come for Rihanna after watching this garbage performance. The sad part is, this is C-error at his best LOL

    • Sleazy October 2, 2012

      5 stans oh the delusion within the navy is unbelievable Sadly rihanna doesn’t even have a “Best” can’t sing can’t dance *giggles*

  27. N October 1, 2012

    I wish I could go to South Africa.

    That country is a >>>>>>>>>>>

    Anyway, great job CiCi. When you’re doing your job perfectly, nobody can blame you.

  28. dee October 1, 2012

    Why is LA Ried dumping more money into Ciara?

    • IDK October 1, 2012

      Because she’s worth it.

  29. IDK October 1, 2012

    Good JOB CiCi!

  30. nikko October 2, 2012

  31. Justin October 2, 2012

    • N October 2, 2012

  33. queen ciara best performer ever is back!!!!! October 2, 2012

  34. lola October 2, 2012

    Many of these comments are sadl You CERROR ass lickers wouldn’t know talent if it bit y’all in y’all asses! This performance was freaking horrible and CERROR has a very, very weak voice AKA the b**** can’t sing! Wow, you could barely f****** hear her and that is because her voice is so weak. Riwhorna’s performnces are better than this, and that’s a damn shame because she’s one of the worst performers out right now. AT LEAST YOU CAN HEAR RIHANNA YELLING FOR HELP!

  35. GAslickmouf October 2, 2012

    I must say the hate on ciara is sick! The song is really nice, most of yall queens just dont like Ciara as a person. So no matter wtf she does yall queens still wont like her.

    She culd sing good and dance good but yall queens still wont like her cuz yall dont like Ciara as a person. Thats just pure ass hate!

    It takes more energy for negativity then positivity. Yall sum lame stupid broke queens that dont wana give credit to whr credit is due!

    Find a job and vote!! Yall sick queens!

  36. remmy October 2, 2012

    What the hell was that!

  37. KingPhoenix October 3, 2012

    This performance was great.!!! She has a lot of stage presence, unlike y’all faves….
    Their was technical difficulties, and obviously mic was weak.!
    But that acapella was GREAT.!
    She def has improved vocally.!!

  38. RhiannaDiamondisnumberone October 20, 2012

    Ciara needs to go get a decent vocal range and vibrato she getting slayed by the OMG girlz, Rita Ora and every other artist that can sing using two or more octaves. Flat voiced m***********

  39. CCFan007 October 22, 2012

    That acapella >>>>
