Kelly Rowland Performs At Will.i.am Pre-Grammy Party

Published: Saturday 30th Jan 2010 by Sam

Our girl Kelly Rowland took to the stage at will.i.am‘s ‘Dip Dive’ pre-Grammy party earlier this week. The singer, who is set to officially announce her new record deal with Universal Motown at any moment now, performed her worldwide smash ‘When Love Takes Over’ with DJ David Guetta.

Ms. Kelly really has been knocking it out the park with her most recent performance, with this being no different. Her vocals were powerful and overly on-point. Great performance!

    Good Morning
    Kelly is doing her thing.
    Grace if you so tired of hearing this song, grace while did you even listen to it. if you don’t like what Kelly is singing just don’t listen and reply. this is something that I don’t understand with anyone if you don’t like a artist just don’t listen to them. now tell me can any one that say that don’t like a song can they sing that song better and if so why don’t we hear from you.

  17. lyric_lee January 30, 2010

    anon boy please – rihanna is good at what she does but she doesnt bring any attitude to her performances and sucks live and her songs arent hard to sing PERIOD — ms kelly sings live a80 percent of the tyme when shes sick or not and she dances as well – some perfromances may lack a little and some performances are good and some performances are amzing – its ms kelly all the way and she puts on a show – i prefer raw vocals anyday over lip synching and the emotion she puts into it just makes u wanna just listen and feel the pain or the joy that shes experiencing – check bad habit on the the destiny fullfilled tour or stole or dilemma then switch to like this comeback and work at the aol sessions and then daylight and the paul ogrady show acoustic and with the band and then check when love takes over acoustic and the 2009 verisons and the 2010 versions – are u kidding ms kelly is amazing and shes finally getting the recognition she deserves – shes ready to take her place and the rnb dance pop sound is def up for grabs – she has the vocal skill and strength wellll above the “eh ehs” and other singers who merly sing and not SANG – EVERYONE HAS THERE OWN THING AND MS KELLLLYYY JUUUSSTT FOUND HERs and its all thanks to that amazing track WORK and the remix which started this new craze and created this new diva – ms kellllyyyyy or shall i say KELENDRIA – U BETTA WORKKKKKK!!!!!

  18. chelsie January 30, 2010

    Anon, Rihanna has no talent. Kelly could cough up blood and still sound better than that Billy Goat. And at least she makes the effort to entertain than lazily walk from one spot to the other shaking her’ hair’. And at least Kelly isn’t a devil worshipper ala Riri… FACT

  19. B@tch Please January 30, 2010

    She sucks and so does her career. GOOD DAY 🙂

  20. Bombee January 30, 2010

    I lobe Kelly but this performance wasn’t all that, she sounds as if she is a bit hoarse, and therby shouting and straing her voice at times. I seem her do better with this song

  21. Bombee January 30, 2010

    @Chelsea u r so stupid, why are you bring up rihanna in a Kelly Rowland post. Obviously you are a Rihanna lover under the quiet. A lot you claim not like Rihanna, but boy you all bring up her name on every post on every blog. Go Riri, they can’t dreaming about you, even though they claim to hate you.

  22. meechy05 January 30, 2010

    Don’t respond to the negative things K Rowland fans lets them role in , there is no need to debate its a waste of time arguing with rhianna or beyonse fans they are delusional stop the madness and that performance was hot kellzz!

  23. anon January 30, 2010

    to the people who are assuming that i dissed kelly rowland and said she cant sing. it just gets to me how biased sam and trent are to kelly, global star and that, she isnt amazing live but she is very good, but i wish sam would stop being so biased. and rihanna, i never said she has raw emotion in her singing and i am not a rihanna stan by the way, its just how much blatent cheek he gives her and bias towards kelly. nothing about the artists, more about the way sam portrays her

  24. Anndee January 30, 2010

    I want her to succeed, would like to hear some new material. Starting to hate this song, sounds like too much screaming to hit the high notes and she’s a better singer than that.

    @ Anon, as long as you come on this site you’ll have to eventually accept that Sam and Trent are going to have favorites and artists they just don’t care for. Let this thread be about Kelly.

  25. loso January 30, 2010

    This is a post about Kelly Rowland the worlwide star!!!!!!!! There is no need to talk about Rihanna or Beyonce in this section. Please go to a Rihanna or Beyonce video on the site and complain because us Kelly fans don’t care bout those 2 other girls. Thank you!!!!!!!!!!! Love u Kelendria!!!!!!!!!!!!

  26. Glynniee January 30, 2010

    @CHELSIE two thumb up!!!!!!!!
    greart performance Kelly… plsss bring on the new album.. am itching for it …… love u loadssss xxx

  27. Glynniee January 30, 2010

    @biatchplease if kelly sucks and has no talent, then y r u not up there signing deals and performing on shows. but yet u have the right to insult someone who has a passion for what she does and not only that,.. but who has an undeniable talent which is TO SING AND PERFORM!! And also in future dont bother watching her videos or reading any of her news… to avoid leaving stupid comments.

  28. love this woman January 30, 2010

    She killed it. Haters keep hating.

  29. Me January 30, 2010

    Even when her voice is not 100% the girl still shuts it down. Her natural presence. Her energy. Her realness. Her SANGIN. There is so much about Kelly to appreciate. She’s been working very hard and her voice is obviously and understandably tired, YET she still tore this song up. There aren’t many artist who can sound good even on a bad day. Only the ones with actual talent and Kelly certainly has that. This may not be her best but the fact that it’s not her best and it’s still good means that her best is and will be outstanding.

  30. Anne January 30, 2010

    Even better than the last performance posted. Go Kelly!

  31. Airon January 31, 2010

    I’m sorry, but what the heck is yall smokin’ on. Not to be rude but…. this performance was jacked up. I don’t want to put Beyonce in this conversation but I gotta, Kelly is so worked up on trying to attain what Beyonce does vocally and performance wise that she is messing up her own performances. People truly wonder why she is not successful as B…. its because Kelly is not all that great of singer. Yall know its true. Don’t get me wrong though, some “singers” do manage to squeak by… Cassie, Britney Spears, Rihanna, & Kesha, Keri Hilson too (yes I said it!)…. the list goes on. Regardless I’m still a Kelly Rowland fan always have and always will be. But for reals, this girl cannot sing as well as she thinks she can.

  32. Airon January 31, 2010

    P.S. – It don’t matter how much passion she has, if she can’t sing she can’t sing. She can still work in the music industry ( producer, writer etc.) just not as a singer. I just don’t think Kelly was meant to be a solo star… her voice sounds much better when she’s in a group.

    P.S.S. – I also forgot to mention Heidi Montag in the list of “singers” who can’t sing.

  33. Alicia January 31, 2010

    @AIRON

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_8iS-fx0GJ0
    PROOF THAT MS.KELLS GOT THEM SKILLS

    F*** OUTTA HERE WITH WITH THAT DEAF S*** USE YOUR F****** EARS

  34. Airon January 31, 2010

    @ Alicia – Hmmmmmm….. I did use my ears you lame-o. It’s my opinion more like the truth and what I say goes so live with it! Face it Kelly is bootleg Beyonce and YOU know it, she’s just not on Beyonce’s level (so lets not be delusional here). But regardless of your so in denial self I’m still a fan.

    I love how people play all big and tough behind their keyboards but in person they’re still lame. And you lucky I’m feeling saved today, b/c if I responded the way I really wanted to…. but then again I probably still wouldn’t b/c I’m classy and fly as heck.

    P.S. – Stan of Ms. Kelly Rowland on acid lets try not to use so much profanity, it so…. how shall I say…. LAME!

    Holla!

  35. Airon January 31, 2010

    P.S. – Mr. Grumpy Gills, you also don’t know me but you choose to respond, I guess my super intelligent comment (more like the truth) does have some meaning to it. But then again I am the truth.

    Yours Respectfully Airon (Mr. I Keeps It Real And Poppin + I Am The Truth)

    Holla!

  36. Airon January 31, 2010

    P.S.S. – In that link you provided she did start off okay (surprisingly) but as usual she went all off key when the chorus started. Trust me my not as fly person I am the truth, so obviously I know what I’m talking about.

    P.S.S.S. – That is so some typical fan stan type of stuff for reals… having videos prepared to hit somebody with when they have some intelligent truth to discuss. LOL’s 🙂

  37. Alicia January 31, 2010

    take your ass else you brought you ass BACK to this topic for what reason don’t beyonce need her feet washed some where go do that!,please keep kellys name out you mouth HATER!

  38. Alicia January 31, 2010

    lmao at haters always stalking the person they claim they don’t like if you think she’s untalented than why do you constantly stay with her name in your mouth you say your a fan but you say she can’t sing a lick? *confused* uh then what are you a fan of then?
    you a funny little troll and it’s her song she arrange the vocals so how gone say she started off wrong you write a song for to sing then make that statement in the mean time stop telling Rich,Important people how to do their job

  39. Alicia January 31, 2010

    take your ass else where you brought your ass BACK to this topic for what reason don’t beyonce need her feet washed some where go do that!,please keep kellys name out your mouth HATER!

  40. Airon January 31, 2010

    Uh Dur…. Thus the reason I said I was a fan. You can be a fan of somebody, but think they can’t sing all that well or stay on tune… I’m big fan of Rihanna but hate watching her perform live for the fact that she sucks singing live. Now I loves me some Gatorade but I hates me some Haterade, so gets off of it. It’s okay Mr. you’ll understand when your older. So up out my face man!

    P.S. – I do appreciates the effort of using less profanity, YOU DESERVE A COOKIE!

    P.S.S – Yall know Beyonce is going to tear up the stage tonight at the Grammy’s! Kelly Rowland stan fan sit back and watch a dime diva Queen show ya how its done. If you can’t tell yes I’m a HUGE Beyonce fan (at least my girl can stay on tune)! So tough dulce de leche.

    Hasta Luego Senora!
