Kelly Rowland Performs On Lopez Tonight

Published: Friday 29th Jan 2010 by Sam

Global star Kelly Rowland rocked the stage on the George Lopez Tonight Show with David Guetta a few hours ago. The Destiny’s Child alumni and the French DJ – who is undeniably the hottest producer out at the moment – performed their worldwide smash ‘When Love Takes Over’. Check out the performance above…

It’s so refreshing to see Ms. Kelly doing her thing on her home turf once again. I was really loving the powerful vocals, her confidence, sass, and energy. What’s more, the audience were LOVING it. Great performance!

Tidbit: Kelly and David are nominated for Best Dance Song at this Sunday’s Grammy Awards. Here’s hoping they win!

What do you think of the performance?

    She did amazing!!!!!

  8. Me January 29, 2010

    I don’t care what anyone says; Kelly Rowland is a vocal beast. She is indeed one of the strongest vocalists of this current generation. You know what I realized about Kelly while watching this performance; Kelly is a very organic performer. Her vocals may not always be as perfect as critics may like them to be(as if they could sing any better) but her vocals are ALWAYS live and her voice is always beautiful(thanks to that God given tone that at times rivals Whitney Houston’s). Wether she sings this with a DJ behind her or acoustically, simply sitting on a stool and riding smoothly over a guitar riff(my favorite way for Kelly to perform) she always gives it to us raw and I for one find that refreshing in an industry full of half-ass singers who lack passion and purity when they attempt to perform. You can clearly see that this girl LOVES what she does and was born to do it. She doesn’t have to hide behind the smoke and mirrors. She doesn’t need to hide behind an alter ego and she certainly doesn’t need to hide behind a hairstyle or a fashion foward outfit(although the girl has style for days), or a bunch of “eh,eh,eh’s” if you catch my drift. Kelly simply FEELS IT and I can’t help but think things are only going to get better once she releases(or should I say unleashes) her new music. I see bigger and better promo in Kelly’s future, bigger and better performances and most importantly a bigger and better TOUR! And yes, I’m certainly going to be there cheering her on through all of it. MS. KELLY, THIS IS YOUR SEASON GIRL. GO FOR YOURS IN 2010.

    Don’t get me wrong, Love this song and I always supported Kelly, but this hit is a once-in-lifetime succsess for both of them, my opinion.

  10. Nicolas January 29, 2010

  11. david January 29, 2010

  14. Red January 29, 2010

    Kelly Rowland is a global star? Since when?
    I love her but please lets get the things real…
    Few weeks ago you called Christina Aguilera a pop “STARLET”, the girl who sold over 40 millions records world wide, had about 10 world wide hits, won 5 grammies and so on…

    I mean I love Kelly, Ms. Kelly was a great album, and Im her fan but come on… you are writing nonsens…

    anyway great perfomance kelly. keep it up!

  19. matt January 29, 2010

    like a few people have stated in this post, “golbal star” really, when you refer too other people as lower than that and they have more vocal ability than miss kelly. i do like her but plase stop talking s*** and stop being so biased, its really annoying!!

  20. KO January 29, 2010

    Ugh she doesnt sound so good here, it started decent then went downhill. Then again she never sounds good live

  21. dakkylove January 29, 2010

    this is an amazing performance and to think she is in the studios, travelling (she just shut down the will i am pre grammy party someone tweeted about it and will be in africa for a performance sponsored by a major phone company) and will be back to attend the grammy,s and still chooses to perfom live instaead of lypsynch when she should clearly be resting her voice…i cant wait for her album.

  22. dakkylove January 29, 2010

    oops didn,t finish meant she clearly needs to rest her voice but she still put out a fantastic album, so i know this is not even 60% of what she is capable of., i,m ready for her to blow up fast. i hope they win the grammy.

  23. Habib January 29, 2010

  27. JOR January 29, 2010

    I love Kelly but let’s be real…it was betta than her bad days(almost everyday) but it wasn’t great(vocal wise…I had to take breaks watcing it…I guess I rather a more polished singer than someone with a lot of energy…

  28. JOR January 29, 2010

    Ps people are buggin on here…gotta be fans of hers…god knows she needs as much blind and deaf followers as she can get…

  29. rightround(U.S.A pride!- help HAITI!) January 29, 2010

    i really like Kelly and she did great. she should thank heavens for David Guetta giving her this song to sing. otherwise she’d be trying to push out an album that nobody will buy!

    “global star” tho? OK then.

  30. lyric_lee January 29, 2010

    ALL THE HATERS IN THE WORLD CANT STOP MS KELLY SO KEEP IT UP – PLUS DAVID PLAYED THE BEAT AND SHE ASKED FOR IT AND THE CO WROTE A GLOBAL SMASH THAT PUT DAVID ON THE MAP OVER HERE SO DONT GET IT TWISTED

  31. YouPutTheLimeInTheCoconut January 29, 2010

    Kelly’s definitely a global star – meaning nobody’s checking for her ass in the US unfortunately, lol!

  32. Tim January 29, 2010

    She sounded horrible, she needs to stand behind Beyonce. One of the worst live perfomances I’ve ever heard. How is this David Guetta a DJ, he a clapping hype guy. They must really produce the songs on her albums. Keep spending your money on this garbage idiots.

  33. JOR January 29, 2010

    @ TIM…I was thinking the same thing…if its pre-recorded (all but kellys sad vocals) how much djing can he be doing bach there…just askin’ (really does anyone know)

  34. lyric_lee January 29, 2010

    LOL SHE MUST BE DOING SOMETHING RIGHT – HATERS KEEP IT UP – MS KELLY I SEE U BOO~~~~KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK CUZ HAVE THESE HATERS DOWNLOAD SHYT ANYWAY – CANT WAIT FOR THE ALBUM!!

  37. Erica24 January 29, 2010

    @Everyone

    Davide guetta looks like the guy who played willy wonka and the chocolate factory! Is it just me? lol…

    He’s a cool dj tho, and he’s making those fist-pumping tracks …lol.

  38. Trina January 29, 2010

    she nominated for a grammy 3 of them for 2010 why not perform the song dumbass!

    she Is global her song was number 1 !!! in 11 countries!!! and she may not have the us by the balls like in those other countries but she was number 1 on the cance charts here so you confused people might was use your search button I love how people say she can’t sing and is going to flop yet they keep commenting on her and following her every move
    I guess I’ll see you at the record store when her new album releases I understand her
    current success is bothering you you all probly thought that kelly rowland wouldn’t be traveling ALL OVER THE WORLD performing a number 1 record or being nominated for another grammy in 2010 you probly thought she would be struggling for relevance and the fact that that’s not the case really gets under your skin and ever with all that said you secretely wish her success so you keep getting drawn to any news or performances concerning I’m done with yall.

    moving along she looked so pretty! I love her hair her outfit and ofcourse the PERFORMANCE!

  39. Joe Sullivan January 29, 2010

    that was reeeallly good!

  40. lyric_lee January 29, 2010

    TRINA ULL LIKE MY NEW BEST FRIEND – LOL IT MUST BE KILLING THESE HATERS THAT SHE IS SUCCEEDING AND DOING HER OWN THING AND I LOOOVEEEE ITTTT – IF SHE WAS DOING MOVIES PPL WOULD HATE THAT SHE GAVE UP ON SINGING – IF SHE WAS RELEASING A POP ROCK SONG THEN PPL WOULD HATE THAT SHE WASNT URBAN ENOUGH – IF SHE DID URBAN PPL WOULD SAY WELL SHES NO BEYONCE SEE – IF SHE DOES DANCE THAN SHES NOT POPULAR EVEN THO SHES UP FOR 3 GRAMMY NODS – LIKE DAMN WHAT THE HELL DOES SHE REALLY NEED TO DO BEFORE YALL WILL BE SATISFIED LOL – SHE HAS A CHARITY OUT CALLED I HEART MY GIRLFRIEND – ARE U GONNA HATE ON HER BECAUSE SHES NOT INCLUDING BOYS LOL DAMN – YALL SOME SHIESTY ASSES ! MAS KELLY BETTER WORK!!!

  41. TRUTH January 29, 2010

    HER VOICE LACKS RANGE, HOARSE TOO THO NOT AS BAD HAS HER HONG KONG PERFORMANCE. AVERAGE VOCALIST, DIDNT BLOW ME AWAY.

  42. cass January 29, 2010

    she’s just helpin Guetta promote his album in the US. plus, it was a big success here in europe. but yeah, she didn’t sound too good in here.

  43. misspetite82 January 29, 2010

    Kelly jams I love that performance not the look so much but she got the crowd hyped and it made her give her all I loved it !! I think she can really turn into a “global star” if she keeps it up…I really do think she was sick a couple of weeks ago because she sounded great on here…

  44. meechy05 January 29, 2010

    I learned one thing from this world u can’t please everybody so f*** them do watever makes u happy this performance showed she is here to stay and on her way so keep the negative comments rolling baby!!THAT’S WHY SHE SHUT THAT B**** DOWN!!!!!!!!!!

  45. Princess January 29, 2010

    Kelly did a good job. I love her style. She is so classy. I’m loving her energy too. She is in her own element and doing her own thing despite the haters. Kelly has more success than any of you haters. Can’t wait for her album. Kelly is a global star. Just because some people in the U.S (not all) doesn’t like her, doesn’t mean she is not global. This has been number all over the world except the U.S. but who cares. There are other countries outside the U.S. Y’all are always bringing up other artists when it comes to Kelly. She is just as big as or bigger than some of the artists. This is Kelly’s season so haters get ready. She is using y’all as stepping stones. It only makes her stronger. So keep it up. When God has a plan for some, they can’t be denied.

  46. jas January 29, 2010

    Their are really some haters on here!! I mean she shut it down, I dont understand why people would bring the negativety!!,…I guess when people stop talkin about her she should worry,…GREAT PERFORMANCE!!!

  47. david January 29, 2010

    i love you kelly:)

  48. zaack January 29, 2010

    HOT performance! I’m really impressed

  49. Trina January 29, 2010

    exactly when they STOP talking that’s when us fans should worry
    In the mean time lets be happy she has haters because they along with us fans (ofcourse)
    keep the comment boxes under her name filled and they give her youtube video’s high views she must be doing something right if she got them to take time out od there miserable lives to watch her perform

    and lyric_lee you’ve always been my BFF you always show love to kelendria

  50. mki January 29, 2010

    the high note got the party started loved it

  51. meechy05 January 29, 2010

    Um princess it was number 1 here for 4 weeks on the dance charts boo…

  52. AalexisR (Bahamas) January 29, 2010

    The haters are hilarious. GO KELLY.

  53. S*** January 29, 2010

    I thinK Kelly is a Pretty Good Singer, She has her own unique husky dark Raspy Voice, Kinda like Brady (or rihanna- light Raspy voice) but Brady sounds like Kelly Under Water…

  54. S*** January 29, 2010

    However, i dont think this song is that Hot, Its mostly just a UK/European Fluke. You kinda have to force yourself to like it. I hope she does a US Comeback, that would be a nice challenge for her…

  55. loso January 29, 2010

    Yes that was wonderful I love Kelly so much!!!!!!!!!! And people need to understand that this song went #1 in the US also on the dance charts so somebody is checking for Kelly in the US also. Sorry haters!!!!! Lol

  56. ARTISTK January 29, 2010

    LOVE IT KELLY! SO GLAD YOU ARE FINALLY GETTIN THE LOVE YOU SHOULD’VE GOTTEN 5 YEARS AGO!

  57. Anne January 29, 2010

    IT’S ABOUT TIME!! I was really wondering why so many poeple were complimenting Kelly’s voice. After watching this performance, I can kinda understand the hoopla. The other recent performances that I saw were bad or okay but this was good. She sounded great in the beginning but I started to wonder about her stamina towards the end. If she had to perform another song or two after this, I don’t know how good those would have been. But then again, this is a very challenging song. I guess overall, Kelly is a better vocalist than I thought. Just not sure how consistent she is or if I’ll feel the same about the next performance I hear by her.

  58. Ben January 29, 2010

    She did good, it is just a really hard song to sing because every riff has a high note, but she did just enough to make a solid performance. I really hope she wins her Grammy and it truly looks like this is gonna be her year.

  59. Mickael January 30, 2010

    She sounds great on this one !!!

  60. mimi January 30, 2010

    Enjoyed it from beginning to end. LOL@ Kelly running from that d*** @ 1:34!!!!!

  61. lyric_lee January 31, 2010
