ciara sorry live Watch: Ciara Performs Sorry In South Africa

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?

        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)

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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!

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!
