Ciara Performs ‘Takin’ Back My Love’ With Enrique Live

Published: Tuesday 10th Feb 2009 by Sam

R&B star Ciara skipped the Grammy’s this year, opting to perform with Enrique Iglesias at the NFL Pro Bowl Half-Time Show in Honolulu, Hawaii this past Sunday. The pair gave a live rendition of ‘Takin’ Back My Love’, Igelsias’ song which CiCi features on.
About the performance, (it was) not really much of substance IMO. The song itself leaves alot to be desired, one of those things being that Enrique’s voice wasn’t so irritatingly grating. That said, Ciara did her thing; if her vocals were live – she’s definitely come a long way since her earlier live vocal showings.
What do you think of the performance?

    Anyone with sense could tell they weren’t singing live. Ciara has never been a good vocalist live and never will be. Sam you should know better..

    I LOVE CiCi, but my girl was NOT singing live here…. Enrique actually WAS singing live, trust me, I heard the song a 100 times, and i can tell that her part is identical to the recorded one, and his is not. She does look great tho.

    to whoever said that ciara is not a good vocalist and never will be that is just plain old disrespectful and an outright lie .
    Ciara has come along way since Goodies she may not be the best but she’s getting there
    a true vocalist has the ability to switch up ranges and not stay within one main range .
    These haters p*** me off so much sometimes being so negative.
    anyways great job to whoever thought of putting these two together.

    Thank you for saying get off Beyonce. She is not the best in the industry. Cici is a true hard worker never lets her fans get bored. Ciara can sing just fine I have heard her live. Just cause she isn’t powerhouse doesn’t mean she can’t sing. If u notice more people who have different kind of voices are getting sign now a days. She probably has a good reason why she is not singing live. Anybody that is a Ciara fan knows she usually sings live.

    Enrique is live, Ciara is not. Enrique sounded awful.

    F*** the haters. Anyways lip singing or not Ciara got it hands down over Beyonce anyday. I love this song and I think this duo was genius.
