Watch: Christina Aguilera Performs At ‘People’s Choice Awards 2013’ *Updated*

Published: Wednesday 9th Jan 2013 by Rashad

With her stint on The Voice wrapped for now, Christina Aguilera took front stage centre at the People’s Choice Awards 2013 tonight to showcase her own voice.

Still in promo-mode for her latest album ‘Lotus’, the singer performed ‘Blank Page‘ from the LP at the star-studded event, which took place live from Los Angeles’ Nokia Theater.

How did Xtina, who also received The People’s Voice Award, fare? Judge for yourself after the jump…

HQ Coming shortly:

A little shaky at the beginning, Aguilera certainly got it together by the song’s dramatic second verse.  Nailing the song’s raw emotion, it’s safe to say that Christina may be well on her way to rectifying the promo mess that was ‘Lotus’.

Interesting that Aguilera chooses to sing a different song from the album at every major event.  This technique, while presumed the singer’s attempt to throw many ideas against the wall and see which one “sticks”, could potentially confuse consumers.  Be that as it may, we look forward to more performances like this from ‘Lotus’ and a video for ‘Just A Fool’ with Blake Shelton.

    NEGATIVE COMMETNS IN 5 4 3 2 1….LET THE CRITIQUING BEGIN. I THINK IT WAS BEAUTIFUL AND I CAN TELL SHE WAS FEELING IT WHILE SINGING BLANK PAGE….

    • AmbeRussell January 10, 2013

      i agree. i think she was emotional and singing should not be about singing and hitting the note, rather becoming the song and knowing how to feel the song. people are so concern about singing everything perfectly, yet those same ppl don’t feel the song. how can you call a ballad performance boring? people are just simple…

    ewwww WTF she started off flat as F***….

    • MUSICHEAD January 9, 2013

      Did you mean fat as f***?

      • Monstarebel (This FAT B**** is the Star Of TGJ) January 9, 2013

        no boo FLAT ..that first note was a no…didn’t even sound like herself…

    • MUSICHEAD January 9, 2013

      I know. I was just being mean lol. I take it back 🙁

    • Rob January 10, 2013

      You wish R**** can sing like that. Duh!

  3. _feeniix_ January 9, 2013

    I thought she did ok. She sounded sick but she wasnt screaming and over doing it like usual.

    • AmbeRussell January 10, 2013

      and lets not forget, her publicist did just pass away like a week or two ago.

      • irene46 January 10, 2013

        damn! another publicist? first her publicist for ‘burlesque’ is murdered now this one loses her struggle with cancer at 39.

        sad for this woman’s family and christina.

  4. JazThatBoi January 9, 2013

    Wow i dont know what to say really. It wasnt bad but it wasnt really the Christina I’m used to. I didnt even recognize her voice the first 10 sec. And to be honest the song is pretty boring. I remember when she did “hurt” on the mtv vid awards back in the day. She usually slays songs like this but this time it just didnt work for me.

    • DIOB January 9, 2013

      I think she was a little chocked up in the beginning. She seemed sad. The song isnt the most lively of songs but the message is beautiful.

      • JazThatBoi January 9, 2013

        Maybe thats what it was….i love Christina so theres always next time Ma

  5. MUSICHEAD January 9, 2013

    Now how can anybody watch this struggle ass performance and think to call Christina the voice of anybody’s generation?!?

    Christina just earned a full scholarship to attend the Brandy R. Norwood Academy of Vocal Performing Arts. Here she will learn how to:

    Harmonize
    Riff/Run
    Sing on key
    Stay within her range
    Master her lower register so that she doesn’t sound out of breath all the time.

    • all4u1 January 10, 2013

      People who appreciate raw talent and emotion, can watch this performance. On the other hand, Brandy, sometimes sound a bit nasal. So don’t compare Brandy with Christina. She could never sing better than Christina.

      #fact!!!

      • MUSICHEAD January 10, 2013

        Are you kidding me? People who appreciate raw talent understand that there is a difference between being LOUD and being a vocal master.

        After all these years, Christina has yet to learn how to use her voice correctly which is why the quality in her voice continues to worsen.

        Brandy on the other hand is a vocal goddess. She may not be as loud as Christina but when it comes to technique, mastering her vocal highs and lows, runs and conveying emotion, Brandy is superior to Christina in every category.

      • irene46 January 10, 2013

        christina has great tone equal to brandy’s but let’s stay in the reality zone. brandy’s technique is far better.

  6. SLAYRIAH CAREY January 9, 2013

    I did NOT like the performance at all, But her outfit was cute as f***.

  7. My forehead tho January 9, 2013

    Her performance was boring ass hell….

    But I know her husband Kermit the Frog was proud of her and that’s all that matters

    • MUSICHEAD January 9, 2013

      LMAO!

  8. music3 January 9, 2013

    I liked her performance. Good song and she did not go all over this time around. She sounded sick but still managed to pull it off. After she feels good again, she should perform Your Body. That is something she owes her fans at least and would be a very anticipated and interesting performance to expect!

  9. DIOB January 9, 2013

    I think she did wonderful. She was emotional in the beginning and you can clearly hear that. She was chocked up but once she got into the song it was beautiful. I will always support you Christina no matter what people think. woman gets so much s*** on a daily basis it makes no sense.

    • Monstarebel (This FAT B**** is the Star Of TGJ) January 9, 2013

      honey it’s ok she started off horribly

      • DIOB January 9, 2013

        Did you hear me say the beginning was good? No you didnt. Is this your way to start some immature ass Chrstina Bashing?

      • Monstarebel (This FAT B**** is the Star Of TGJ) January 9, 2013

        True not really tryna bash Xtina she did decent for the rest of the song…. on a positive note she also looked very pretty & her outfit was cute xoxo

    • irene46 January 10, 2013

      you’re right, it’s astonishing how this girl that’s so talented has been ripped and ravished by all media sources until her career is practically in shambles.

      then the hypocrites step back, scratch their butts and pretend to wonder why she can’t sell records anymore. it just might have something to do with the fact she’s been continuously savaged since ‘keeps gettin’ better’ (that’s when the gaga bs started) and got/gets praised for nothing.

      anyway, beautiful job christina!!!

  10. jason January 9, 2013

    LOL THAT WAS DISTURBING! LOL

    JUST WEIRD! LIKE I’M NOT SURE IF SHE WANTED TO CRY OR HER LOWER REGISTER WAS JUST COMPLETELY FLAT AND OFF!

    WOW!

    • DIOB January 9, 2013

      I think she was about to cry thats why she sounded off.

      • irene46 January 10, 2013

        she was definitely about to cry! poor thing!!! the dirty the rotten sob’s claim she’s such a nasty bit*h. she’s a saint compared to them.

    • Monstarebel (This FAT B**** is the Star Of TGJ) January 9, 2013

      yess honey she was flat as s***

  11. A simple critique. January 9, 2013

    Next!

  12. rich86 January 9, 2013

    She did great,clearly this is a very personal and emtional song for her as its about her ex husband,singing is being able to connect a lyric to a melody,not displaying vocal technique,I have nothing against vocal training but give me a voice that connects to a song lyrically ,she does that,so all the so called music professionals can take a back seat cuz I know none of u can get up there and sell that song ,nice job chrissy:-)

  13. ƸӜƷ MC ƸӜƷ January 9, 2013

    I think she looks very cute but the performance was okay. I mean she was kinda shaky a bit? Maybe emotional like someone said. Why that pic though Sam? Congrats on her award/recognition though. Her flat notes though……just…….

    I hope she has a great tour though and I hope Lotus does better.

    • mr.m January 10, 2013

      Let’s see Maniah singing this?
      She would’ve whispered all the notes
      She could never .. #DEAL
      Bye, h**

      • Touché January 10, 2013

        What is your problem? There was no point in you bringing up Mariah in a sad attempt to make Christina look better.

      • ƸӜƷ MC ƸӜƷ January 10, 2013

        Can’t do what? Strain, yell, and sound flat? No she won’t, go check her Fallon, Christmas performances, and Australian shows for proof. Fall back.

  14. irene46 January 9, 2013

    when she first started it sounded as though she was about to cry. she’s probably really in a lot of pain due to her second in a row album flop and the media still shading her by treating her a though she’s irrelevant.

    her voice sounded great after she regrouped.

      • irene46 January 10, 2013

        You really think she was thinking about that while performing this?
        —————————————————————-

        and just why couldn’t she be? being slammed all the time and record sales suck. probably was thinking how she was going to be dragged or ignored in the media.

      • ƸӜƷ MC ƸӜƷ January 10, 2013

        So you’re implying that right before she starts singing all that occurred to her? What a far-fetched exaggerated theory. Should I say Mariah whispers because she feels the pressure when she’s bashed? 🙄

    • MUSICHEAD January 9, 2013

      Irene46, do you think that Christina is also suffering from being on a “super label” now? I mean let’s face it, RCA has too many artists now: Chris Brown, Alicia Keys, Britney Spears, Brandy, Miguel, Fantasia etc..

      Christina was always the high profile artist on RCA but now she has to compete for attention with all of the high profile artists the label is still promoting at the same time as her.

      I don’t think she was prepared to have to work so hard to get promo from her label this time.

      • irene46 January 10, 2013

        maybe if the record label didn’t spend so much time and money paying sources to hype every cough and sneeze of no talent britney spears while they ignore the more worthy artist such as christina.

        yeah, and britney really works hard to get promo, doesn’t she?!

      • AmbeRussell January 10, 2013

        not to mention, her PR just passed away from breast cancer

    • MUSICHEAD January 10, 2013

      Britney has a larger fan base and is more favorable with the media which is why she continues to get more attention.

        ———————————————————–
        you’re kidding, right? you think that an artist going thru hurtful sh!t is alway able to climb on stage and bring it as usual. ‘lotus’ sold half as much as the media battered ‘bionic’, her publicist just died and her ass was singing a sad song with lyrics that somewhat match what’s happening with her career.

        her voice really cracked when she was talking about all of those being bullied and put down which also describes where she’s been/is to a tea.

        you can’t come close to comparing the shade that the crappy media throws at mariah to the continued slamming, beat down and hatred they hurl at christina.

        it was total bs when mariah’s epic comeback album ’emancipation of mimi’ sold 10 million ww and grabbed 3 grammys in the r & b category and not a single one in pop. so bogus! mariah took it well. it was nothing to cry about but i woulda been mad as hell.

      • irene46 January 10, 2013

        @ musichead…

        following britney’s meltdown her album ‘blackout’ demonstrated a drastic decline in her fan base. right away the media, her record label and the rest of the music industry ramped up to save her with awards (that she didn’t even get when she was at her best) and all other forms of hype, hula and exaggerated accomplishments that hasn’t stopped.

        if the media had continued to slam britney for 2007 vma performance and her true lack of talent, her career would be as nearly bad off as christina’s.

  15. MRDIVABITCH January 9, 2013

    She improved as the performance went on, but the first minute or so…OMG so off key…I almost threw my computer out the window. And that belted note in the bridge…honeychileplease…flatter than a 4 day old soda.

    • mr.m January 10, 2013

      Even her flat notes >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> your fav whole singing ability
      LOL! #DEAL

      • MRDIVABITCH January 10, 2013

        LMAO, b****, I’m a classically trained vocalist with a 5+ octave range. Have several seats.

      • all4u1 January 10, 2013

        You are a classically trained vocalist ( so you say) that stays on TGJ all of the time, checking for Christina.

        Have a seat and sit your hypocritical ass down somewhere!!!!

      • rich86 January 10, 2013

        @mrdivabitch hahahaha well well well what have we got here.”oh I’m a classically trained singer with a 5+ octave vocal range”blah blah blah,no darling its more like you are an over trained technical vocal mess. You think singing is all about technique don’t you? Well its not,its about being able to connect with a lyric and literally paint a picture bringing that song alive and pulling in your audience which she did,not standing there wrapped up in your head focusing on hitting every note with great technique.Christina is far more superior of a singer and musician that u will ever be.Her knowledge of music is far superior to yours,this is a person who was doing this thing from a very young child,its in her blood,her heart,not someone who just woke up and say hey i want to be a singer so I’m going to run to a vocal coach and get trained because my raw vocals sucks aka YOU. Everything you know about music is studied and out of a book,on the other hand what she knows is from studying her idols and paying close attention to them developing her own sound. She`s a raw singer,I’m sure if she wanted to sound “perfect” she would have gotten training.Like it or not,she was known for that amazing voice from a child and today she is still praised for it regardless of her “technique” unlike some people who run around the net bragging about their 5+ octave over trained voice yet have no record deal because every time he sings,he sounds very bland and not so interesting.Sit down darling,you ruffle your feathers for no reason,muahhhhhhhhhhh

      • MRDIVABITCH January 19, 2013

        I don’t give a flying f*** who praises her
        Sure, she has a nice VOICE
        but she is not a great VOCALIST.
        Understand the difference?
        It’s like the difference between having a nice piano and being a great pianist.

        Get it?

        Vocal skill is shown through SINGING WELL not through being praised. Hell, even basic b****** like Alicia Keys get praised for their vocals.

    • MRDIVABITCH January 10, 2013

      Babyg3rl, writing a fierce reading about your b**** doesn’t take more than a few seconds and it amuses me endlessly, that’s all.

    • MRDIVABITCH January 13, 2013

      @ RICH86

      Sure sure sure
      She is such a superior vocalist
      And yet when it comes time to deliver
      she queefs out dreadfully off key strained vocals.

      G3rl, #BYE

      • rich86 January 17, 2013

        and yet she`s highly praised and awarded for her voice,sorry hun but you are just a sad little repetitive bitter wannabe diva,muahhhh.

  16. King B>Rihanna January 9, 2013

    Her best vocal performance this era……..She sounded horse but it was still good……..The key for Christina is restraint when she pulls back off of the vocal gymnastics she sounds brilliant. She doesn’t have the proper technique to belt now so she needs to hold back.

  17. MRDIVABITCH January 9, 2013

    Poor Chrissy can’t get it right…when she is dressed nice (such as in this performance) her hair looks greasy and disgusting. When her hair is did, she is dressed like a cheap drag queen.

    One of my favorite Christina performances her vocals were so on point back then… *sigh*

    • mr.m January 10, 2013

      GUUURL???
      Are comparing a simple “genie in a bottle” song/performance to her hard songs performances now??? LOL!
      She can pull off that performance any day any time and even when she shits in a bathroom
      That just shows how low and weak your singing knowledge is LMAO .. Oh well look whos you fav .. *sigh*

      • Monstarebel (This FAT B**** is the Star Of TGJ) January 10, 2013

        well honey that simple genie in a bottle performance slays this off key mess of a performance!! NOT my problem your favs voice has become non existent…. *sips tea diamonds is still in the top 10 after 4 months where’s your body B****?*

  20. ceaton85 January 10, 2013

    It makes no difference LOTUS is a resounding flop? Why hasn’t TGJ posted about that? Where are the weekly posts at how it left the top 10 after on one week, it has sold less than 200,000. Where is the fair and unbiased reporting?

    • irene46 January 10, 2013

      they’ve already reported about how poor the sales are. how much more beating do you want them to give her. what other female have they given a blow by blow weekly report of how their album’s floppiing?

  21. irene46 January 10, 2013

    i recorded the award show and just watched christina’s performance again. she did sound like she was quite choked up at first. she sounded wonderful when she got it together.

    i got choked up myself listening to her speech. she seemed obvious she was in a lot of pain while she was encouraging those who are victims of hate and bullying to stand strong. she should take on bullying as one of her humanitarian causes since she has always been a victim of it herself.

    you could tell she really really appreciated the award from her heart.

    • MRDIVABITCH January 10, 2013

      Yeah, the girl that was the typical blonde skinny chick with big tits and hypersexual image is against bullying… seems VERY hypocritical.

      • Criss January 10, 2013

        U know she was skinny when she released Beautiful and The Voice Within right? Christina’s been an inspiration to young girls for years. Go listen to Stripped.

      • MRDIVABITCH January 10, 2013

        Inspiration for whom?
        Weak people with self esteem issues will leech on to whoever pretends to be stronger than them.

      • irene46 January 10, 2013

        christina is only pretending to be strong? do you think you could hold up under the constant assaults she be exposed to from every direction?

        as for you railing against people with esteem issues, who are they supposed to get inspiration from if not someone who seems strong and can give them encouragement?

        btw, pretty people get bullied too!

      • MRDIVABITCH January 10, 2013

        @ IRENE46

        Hate to sound like a broken record, but I’ve been bullied, harassed and threatened by Christina stans and I haven’t cried a single tear.

        Some people just have thicker skin than others.

      • LaLa January 10, 2013

        ahem

        and what’s the difference with lady gaga for doing the same thing?

      • irene46 January 10, 2013

        your lack of tears is not a sign of strength. the attacks have just made you hateful and bitter. you savage christina with such harshness one would think she’s the one ripping on you.

  22. mr.m January 10, 2013

    AWWW! Xtina wanted to cry at the beginning 🙁
    The song is about her EX husband .. well DUHHH
    Get it together gurl 🙁 I was so scared when I heard her at the beginning
    Its such a very hard song to sing
    BUT she pulled it together and sang it beautifully
    The performance was so emotional and AMAZING!!!

    THE VOICE OF OUR GENERATION

    • all4u1 January 10, 2013

      Yes, Yes, Yes!

  23. Jer January 10, 2013

    Smh

  24. all4u1 January 10, 2013

    Christina’s performance was good. However, her vocals was a little affected by the message of the song.

  25. mc the place to be! January 10, 2013

    I could careless how she sings this song live I know that the first time I heard this song I was sobbing because dammit I could relate the song is just beautiful just the piano and her voice I’m sorry but technique ain’t every frickin thing the only person that could really pull off technique plus emotion is Whitney perfectly! With that being said I would tear up too if I sung this song!

  26. HOWYOULIKEIT January 10, 2013

    Love u Xtina but it’s too late. You messed up this era. That’s two albums flopping already. You need to get it together and release a hot new album if u want to stay relevant.

    • MRDIVABITCH January 10, 2013

      Won’t happen. A third flop and she’ll be dropped by her label. Mark my words.

      • irene46 January 10, 2013

        lotus is as good or better than some of what’s been put out in the last couple of years and inexplicably sold well.

        this is not about christina music, it that was the case the illegal downloads won’t be so high. why would someone download an album that was no good?

        it’s more about the ugly image that’s been painted of her. and it’s going to take more than a good album to revive her career.

  27. aishaaguilerakeys January 10, 2013

    That was such a heartfelt performance, I cried. Alright, Aguilera! So proud of my girl, this performance is an improvement from the previous ones ! She just has to go on tour to get her voice back together.

    • Jer January 10, 2013

      You arent the only one grrrl, her voice which was crying out for help too

  28. aishaaguilerakeys January 10, 2013

    She gave a good speech, but then again, Aguilera has always been a good speaker.

  29. Sava January 10, 2013

    No pancake will ever be able to be as flat as her voice was in the beginning. How iconic, how legendary. She truly is #thevoice…

  30. theman January 10, 2013

    This performance was amazing. She sounded great, and she looked great as well. She looked alot slimmer. Some people just want something to nitpick about. Sit down with all of that.

    • all4u1 January 10, 2013

      I’m trying to figure out, why are people trying to tear and rip Christina apart? I wonder does it pay to be true to yourself as a person and as an artist in this day in time?

      • irene46 January 10, 2013

        the media has hated her for the longest time and have done everything to keep her career boxed in. many of the gullible buy into the hatefulness spread by them and aid in smearing it around.

        the media has always had the heart for britney spears (the competition between the two has never been allowed to die) and they will never let christina over take her no matter how talentless britney truly is. they will continue to rip and savage christina until fans push back on them.

  31. BranNu83 January 10, 2013

    Im honestly not surprised she sounds like this. I dont think that she has sang a song that vulnerable in awhile. So kudos to her for making it through. Sounds like a tough song to sing. Just glad to see her back on the stage where she belongs. ‘Stripped’ will always be her best album to me.

    she did good, but people always need to criticize her for no reason. leave her alone, go worry about the fact that britney waves her arms on stage or rihanna just slaps her crotch for her entire set. why nit pick only when it comes to xtina? smh

    • irene46 January 10, 2013

      so true!!

  33. Touché January 10, 2013

    She actually seemed a bit emotional distraught. I mean generally she sounds off all the time when she sings because of her technique but this time it seems like it was because something was bothering her.

  34. mc the place to be! January 10, 2013

    After seeing this a second time she did great I don’t understand all the extra she’s off key if anything she sounded just nervous like any other regular person would be its really hard singing in front of a big audience especially at an award show I think the people who are doing the most out of nothing must really really hate xtina

  35. Xtna shits on your faves January 10, 2013

    Foolish people on this site, she sounded beautiful, a bit nervous for 2 seconds which only added to the emotional value of such a beautiful song

    • Jer January 10, 2013

      Sounding like a tortured horse is not emotional. You tried

      • all4u1 January 10, 2013

        Christina will always be The Voice of This Generation. So, you tried.

  36. nickalus Randle January 10, 2013

    I love me sum Christina too. but I dont get whats going on, BIONIC was AMAZING, this LOTUS album is ok,

  37. Sleazy January 10, 2013

    Jer = rihanna stan calling anybody sounding like a tortured horse? You stan for RIHANNA she is the poster child for Bad singers lol xtina on her worst >>>> rihanna at her best lol

  38. steph January 10, 2013

    A little face surgery along the way: have you noticed the opening of the mouth and the shapes on each side that is specific to face lifting ?
    Love the vulnerability in the beginning and the voice that was different from usually.

  39. JOHNVIDAL January 10, 2013

    I think she was sick or something… but it actually helped her to make the performance more emotive and not to scream all over the place. I think she did better than most of the times in recent performances thanks to all that. So kudos I guess. Her speech was good.
    And the hate towards Xtina Aguilera is certainly out of control. I don´t understand it. Just leave her alone. Especially from some talentless models fans? Give me a break. At least Xtina tries to do interesting things in her albums, even if she fails at times

  40. Mad-On-Her January 10, 2013

    She was great. Towards they end you could tell she was struggling with some of the words in the chorus, but obviously dealt with it well as people aren’t picking up on it.
    It’s the biggest shame of last year that Lotus underperformed, it’s such a great album. I think it seemed like when Christina dropped Your Body she was onto such a sure fire hit they all thought they could relax the promotion. Obviously in today’s day and age that’s not possible (unless you’re Britney, who I’m sure will debut at number 1 with her album last year after performing the lead single once in public.)

    • irene46 January 10, 2013

      no doubt britne’s album will debut at #1 because the media will hype it all to hell while she lays back and does nothing.

  41. Saetana January 10, 2013

    Better than most of her recent performances if you ignore how bad she sounded when she was singing quietly. She went off on the odd screech here and there but definitely an improvement. So is the toned down makeup and conservative clothes, her hair did look a greasy mess though. Not keen on the song but I like very few ballads so its nothing personal. I don’t know what is going on with this woman, she has a fantastic voice but doesn’t appear to want to put the work in to use it properly and most of the time she looks a hot mess. Lotus has flopped partly because she hasn’t promoted it, she STILL hasn’t sang Your Body live and I’d like to hear her sing it at least once, admittedly its too late for the single now. She seems to have gone from one extreme with Bionic to another with Lotus and neither of them have grabbed the pop buying public’s imagination. She needs to get back to the drawing board and not leave it so long this time before she puts out a new album, if you go more than two years without an album in the current climate then you are forgotten basically.

  42. quanny January 10, 2013

    yall make the most excuses for this non singing girl. she can’t sing. end of story!

  43. Fierce P**** January 10, 2013

    When she sang, I could hear the pain and hurt inflection in her voice but she’s not the voice. Whitney Houston will always be better than this straining h**.

    • all4u1 January 10, 2013

      Corrections!! Who said Christina is the voice? She is the Voice Of Her Generation!

      Point, Blank, Period!!!

      • MRDIVABITCH January 10, 2013

        Not as long as Beyonce lives

      • irene46 January 10, 2013

        beyonce!? good technique! bad tone!!! voice is too scratchy and screechy most of the time. she always looks good though and delivers and i’ll give her credit for always putting out a good performance. the woman can really move.

      • MRDIVABITCH January 13, 2013

        Then not as long as Vanessa Amorosi and SoHyang live.
        Youtube them.

  44. cocobutta January 10, 2013

    Improvement but still want her to find that effortless delivery. Love that song though.

    She got it together by the 1st chorus & a except a few tid bits she brought it home 🙂

  45. LaLa January 10, 2013

    I like it & I FELT IT… this song is definitely about Jordan Bratman. She sounded so sick (I almost expected she will snort the flu at the first verse). But yeah as the song goes, she did better & better. not did too many acrobatics vocal which is necessary.

  46. Fierce P**** January 10, 2013

    All4u: well brandy may not have the range xtina has but all that pushing and forcing of her voice xtina does, one could actually question her range and voice ability. Brandy has control of her voice and never in my life have I seen brandy struggle this much with her live performances and brandy does some difficult runs but at least has proper breath support. So IMO, that’s y brandy could be the better singer. Whats the use of all that screaming and straining and squeezing when u damage ur vocal chords? Beats me…

    • MRDIVABITCH January 10, 2013

      Brandy IS a better singer. Effortless, in tune singing is 1000 times better than forced, off key singing.

  47. Peter G January 10, 2013

    Her speech at the end was just so cringe worthy! She really loves herself.

  48. remmy January 10, 2013

    this was awful !!! no shade but that was really bad…moment of silence for my ears

  49. Raina January 10, 2013

    I enjoyed this performance and loved the raw emotion that Aguilera brought to the stage even if it started out a little shaky. Hopefully this will help the promotion of her new album. This performance and award show gave me and my DISH coworker a lot to talk about at work today so I’m glad I caught it. I wasn’t home but was able to record on my DISH Hopper with the PrimeTime Anytime feature. I didn’t have to worry about missing this show or forgetting to set up an individual timer.

  50. RymeReason January 10, 2013

    I think that at this point the label is going for any type of marketing tactic since they are so behind promotion wise. Love the album. Too bad it didn’t get the recognition it deserves.

  51. irene46 January 11, 2013

    much of this evenings celeb show ‘entertainment tonight’ was dedicated to winners of ‘the people’s choice awards’. not once did they show christina or even mention her name although she received a ‘special award’. christina’s treated as irrelevant by a show wastes much of their air time with the likes of jessica simpson.

  52. Collins January 11, 2013

    Haters will always be a hater! She did a great job, she perfomed really well. Why can’t you guys shut your p****’s up. Instead of throwing shits bout her, let’s all just be happy for her, for her comeback. I known, some point of your lives, you were able to liked her. She’s an amazing person and It sucks when people criticizing her when we all know the truth! I love you Xtina! Will forever be a #Fighter & #UnbreakableFlower. Rise Up Christina Aguilera. Love Love Love!

  53. kale January 11, 2013

    She’s. A real singer conveying real emotion. It was great. If I wwant pitch perfect. I’ll. Play the. Mp3

  54. Annita January 22, 2013

    I think she did great and am sure all of u did dance to her music in clubs…
    stop hating guys..its not healthy ..leave christina alone …i love her albums and i want her to sing till her last breath and dont give a s*** if her albums dont go well…she writes music for her life love and her #fighters …
