    Monica was the best performance of the night…. she kept singing like she didnt want to get off the stage. i dontkno y they only let her do one song… she needed more like justin beiber and alan thicke

  2. cutiegurl February 5, 2010

    i just saw that and omg Jazmine gained a lot of weight
    i was mad at chris brown for a few months because of ‘the incident’ but it was nice to see him perform again, he’s very talented that’s for sure. Not a fan but i wish him much success.
    all of the performances were great, it’s awesome that ppl are still pulling together to help haiti even though most of the cameras are gone. Its a beautiful thing

    God Bless the people of Haiti

    Monica’s performance did it for me. She is our generation’s Whitney Houston. Her voice just grabs you instantly.

    Mary and Jazzy did well as well

    I loved Kirk Franklin and the 3 girls. They did awsome… Oh and did I say how much I loved Monicá’s performance.

    Monica SHAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  4. TBoi123 February 5, 2010

    Loved Monica’s performance, she got the annointing in her at the end. Loved Mary’s too without Jasmine.

  5. Tony February 5, 2010

    Where was CIARA?

  6. wtf February 5, 2010

    YASSSSSSS to chris brownnnnnnnn…welcome back boyyy..misssed u soo much!!!

  7. J-Money February 5, 2010

    Yes, i have to agree. Monica stole the show tonight… Vocal masterclass.

  8. Keira_Minaj February 5, 2010

    Monica definately killed it. Wow, her voice is just wow.

  9. MoStan February 5, 2010

    DAMN! Monica really did put it down.

    DAMN.. DAMN… DAMN…

    TEAM MONICA 2010

  11. truthteller February 5, 2010

    I can see that this was just thrown together but no shade, Chrisette michelle’s vocals were off the chain
    Monica was ok but parts of her performance had a shaky note or two and as much as i love monic, she isno where close to whitney at that age, youtube ‘i am changing, he/ibelieve, in a quiet place by whitney
    Chris- was glad to see hm perform, he did great and his songs suited the event
    jazmine sullivan – great performance but imma need her to push away from the table
    robin thicke- love him, he did great on the first song but no sir to him and india arie’s ‘what’s going on’ no, jus tno

    Wyclef and his crew were a mess!

  12. shellychelle February 5, 2010

    Is anyone gonna go hard on keri for singing her song like yall did to beyonce when she sang halo? Halo was way more appropriate. Idk why keri singing that song. We already know the earthquake knocked haiti down, we trying to build it up.

  13. g3 February 5, 2010

    wow jazmine smh monica was good wheres ciara?

  14. Trevez February 5, 2010

    I know this was for a good cause, but damn did this look so rushed. I don’t know why since they are doing it about a month after the quake. They don’t have a lot of people answering phones, and why did they have Mike Tyson doing it LMAO. People was messing up on the prompter. SMH. Monica’s performance stood out the most. I was like “yeah girl, get your shine since people are going to be watching you from MTV, BET and VH1.

  15. AB February 5, 2010

    YEAH MONICA CLEARLY WAS THE ONLY ONE WHO ROCKED IT!

  16. Raychel February 5, 2010

    Monica took us back to church!!!

  17. sugar February 5, 2010

    Go chris go

  18. JerMal February 5, 2010

    As mentioned by most of the posts… Monica was the standout performance… VH1, MTV, and BET were all showing this special, and websites will be posting this… This is a great look for her seeing as how her album will be coming out on the 23rd of March.

    Monica clearly took her performance to another level… Her performance and the Kirk Franklin performance with the three ladies.

    I definately checkin for Ms. Arnold’s CD. Much Props to her…

  19. Dave February 5, 2010

    Monica did good, Chris did too (i was kinda shocked). Wasn’t really watchin anyone else performances

  20. Anna February 5, 2010

    I’m happy to see Chris Brown back on stage.. I miss my future husband. lol. He did a nice job. Did anyone notice how much weight Busta and Jazmine gained?

    Monica well done girlfriend. U do a sista proud! I’m gonna get that cd
    I promise not to bootleg it. 🙂

  21. cutiegurl February 5, 2010

    oh yea Monica rocked!!! what a voice

  22. love this woman February 5, 2010

    I dont care how much weight Jazmine Sullivan gained. That woman can BLOW! She took us to CHURCH with that song she did with Chrisette and Kirk. I would love for her and Chrisette to do a track together. I was happy that Chris came and performed. I know he was probably nervous.

  23. Anna February 5, 2010

    Jazmine Sullivan, India, and Chrisettet Michelle did an Amazing job together…
    Monica best solo performance…
    Chris Brown ( so very s***) Welcome back 😉 😉 😉

  24. kev February 5, 2010

    Everyone did a nice job, Monica was standout, looking forward to her album.
    Chris welcome back, you have been missed

  25. Destined February 5, 2010

    Monica and Chris did it for me. Loved them! And Indie,Chrisette, and Jazmine ripped with Kirk too.

  26. sugar February 5, 2010

    for me — CHRIS ONLY…… even white folks are dancing and singins with him

    Go Chris Go

  27. Kami February 5, 2010

    –A note on the (Haiti) Tragedy: I think it’s really messed up how we’ll rally together as a nation to help out a country that we ordinarily don’t care about, instead of rallying together to help ourselves while we’re in this economic Depression. (</3). its nice that we're helping out other people, but we're sort of late on the up take. we're going backwards.

  28. Shy February 5, 2010

    CHRIS BROWN WAS THE BEST PERFORMANCE OF THE NIGHT!!!!

  29. DaPoetryMan February 5, 2010

    Alas Monica showed the world that she is indeed back… I follow her on twitter, and she just talked about how she gets “caught up” when she performs that song, as it is very personal to her. Great Job!!!!!! I’m glad MTV, and VH1 were also showing this, so a broader audience could see that performance… and if this site is any indication MOST people took notice. (How could they not) She SMASHED it tonight!

    I’ll be in line for that album. March 23, 2010

    BTW it was cool seeing Chris Brown, and Chrisette Michelle’s performance with Jazmine Sulliivan and India …

  30. AskAboutME February 5, 2010

    Seemed as if Chris got the most love there lol. The crowd welcomed him back with opened arms. He did an amazing job. WELCOME BACK , HUN. THE STAGE IS WHERE U BELONG!

  31. Big.Booty.Judy February 5, 2010

    Hope For Haiti! It’s never too late to donate, they still need assistance, so if you can, keep on giving. They may need more assistance 2 or 3 months from now, if we can, we can keep donating even then. Its never too late.

    This may sound ridiculous but watching Chris’ performance made my teary-eyed (no tears were actually shed tho lol). But after wanting to see him perform on TV for so long, and him finally getting the opportunity to do so and for such a great/worthy cause and to hear the crowd show him so much love, they were cheering as soon as his music started playing and then cheered some more even after he finished, and to see them all dancing and smiling and waving in the crowd to his songs….it was a great moment! He had such a crappy year last year. He paid a huge price for his wrong-doings (and he’s still paying), he asked forgiveness and people didn’t want to forgive, and many people felt he would never be received by the public again. The reviews tonight were all positive, the reception was positive. Its just great to see that he’s moving upwards, he can only move up from where he’s been. Hopefully other shows will give him a chance now. It was a good night for everyone who cares about Haiti as well as a good night for Chris Brown fans! Had to get that off my chest!

    Chrisette Michele, Jazzy Sully, Monica, India, Mary J. !!! THESE LADIES SLAYED THE VOCALS!!! … no surprise there!!

  32. Jessica February 5, 2010

    Wow and ppl want to criticize Rihanna’s vocals, Chris’s vocals are not that great either!!!!!

  33. NN February 5, 2010

    chris vocals r great don’t hate cause chris brown performance was perfect i don’t give a s*** what anybody says bad about this performance.If your a cb fan nothing can bring us down tonight!!

  34. lol February 5, 2010

    Who in the hell told Jazmine to wear that dress should go hide.lol

  35. lol February 5, 2010

    Who in the hell told Jazmine to wear that dress out on stage should go hide.lol
    But on another note chris brown was great!!!!

  36. tt February 5, 2010

    chris brown is the best

  37. Yup February 5, 2010

    Keri Hilson was wack as hell. She had no energy and didn’t sound all that great. This b**** is cocky for no reason at all. I agree with ShellyChelle. People went hard on Bey because she sang Halo beautifully which was completely appropriate for the show. She sang Halo for MJ, the sick little girl and her mother. Beyonce sang about seeing their Halo’s and Keri sang about love knocking you down.

    Jazmine and Mary sang beautifully as expected.

    Monica did great with Luda.

    I liked the performances overall and the cause is definitely a big one.

  38. tt February 5, 2010

    Chris brown was the best of the night hands down ,i was not feeling MJB,what happen to CIARA??

  39. pj February 5, 2010

    i never ever thought i would say this but Busta Rhymes was pretty good lol

  40. DAVIONTA February 6, 2010

    No Shade. But IDK about people sayin Monica is out generations “Whitney” but anywho, I will say she was the best out of this groups performances. And KERI. UGGGGH. Everytime im about to see you perform i just want you to kill it but you dont. I dont know what it is. I actually want you to get up there with rihanna and beyonce and them. But hey it is what it is. And how bout her singing her own song. Actually all of them for that matter. I aint heard no bull bout them singin there own songs, but once Bey sing “Halo”, all hell breaks loose. Any who… BOOOOOP

  41. Symone February 6, 2010

    It was so good to see Chris,he was simply amazing! I felt like there was a closeness between the performers at the telethon….

  42. nikki February 6, 2010

    where do I begin?? Monica u go girl u sangggg that song!! Busta I was feeling u Keri I don’t know what happen Jasmine did good don’t care if she gained weight sorry MJB I wasn’t really into u still sounded good though Justin is such a cutie and last but not least Chris brown I really wanna say u have such great talent the crowd was feeling you I love ya mj spin n u hit the ground I was like u better work it boy but no forreal I was so happy for him you can tell the stage is where he belongs hope cb has a great year.

  43. MS.CLAY February 6, 2010

    I;M SORRY GUYS BUT CHRIS BROWN HAD THE BEST PERFORMANCE IMO……MONICA IS MY GIRL AND I LOVE THE SONG BUT CB DID THE DAMN THING! MONICA’S VOCAL’S WERE A LITTLE SHAKEY BUT THE EMOTION WAS DEFINITELY THERE. SHE DID REALLY GOOD. CHRIS’S VOCALS ON CRAWL WERE REALLY BAD BUT ‘WITH YOU’ WAS THE ISH. HE SOUNDED GOOD AND HIS STAGE PRESENCE WAS MAGNIFICENT. I LOVED IT. I KINDA FELT THIS WIERD EMOTION WHEN HE PERFORMED THAT SONG. IDK IT WAS REALLY WIERD. I’VE FELL IN LOVE WITH CB ALL OVER AGAIN. THE CROWD WAS DEFINETELY FEELING HIM TOO. THAT WAS SO AWESOME MAN. WELCOME BACK CB. HOPE HE GET TO DO MUCH MORE OF THIS REALLY SOON. LOVE YOU CB!!!!!!!!!

  44. nikki February 6, 2010

    @msclay agreed crawl was cool ok but with u i was like yessss cb thats the boy i love you show them why u were where u was at b4 everything happen

  45. MS.CLAY February 6, 2010

    BTW……KERI SOUNDED LIKE PURE SH*T!!!!! WRONG SONG CHOICE CUZ FIRST OF ALL IT WAS WRONG FOR THE TELETHON AND SECONDLY NE-YO WASN’T THERE TO SING HIS PART (WHICH IS MY FAV PART)……I HATE WHEN PEOPLE DO FEATURE SONGS AND THE PERSON WHO IS FEATURED ISN’T THERE! CAN YOU SAY ANNOYING!!!!

    AND ALMOST EVERY PERFORMER ON THIS DAMN TELETHON HAS SUNG A SONG OF THEIR OWN AND PEOPLE HAVEN’T SAID ISH ABOUT IT BUT SOON AS BEYONCE SANG HALO (WHICH WAS A LOT MORE APPROPRIATE IMO) PEOPLE GO BANANAS CUZ IT’S BEYONCE. DAMN SHAME PPL ONLY FIND SOMETHING WRONG WHEN IT’S BEYONCE! SMH.

  46. kj February 6, 2010

    chris brown had the best perfromance of the night

  47. Tabri February 6, 2010

    I was very glad to see Chris Brown back on TV again. In my opinion he is the best live performer there is alive at the moment. He toned down his normal high energy type of performing for this because it was a telethon but it was great nonetheless. I hope to see Chris more in the future. I thought Monica was awesome and I actually liked Busta Rhymes performance as well, they did great.

  48. sho ya right… February 6, 2010

    how can some of u say monica wasnt on point with the vocals? yet turn around and say in ur very next sentence that it was an emotional performance? i think that thats what emotions do to u. monica felt something on stage thats bigger than u and i. i have to give it to Mo for shutting it down. she knows for a damn fact that no one was on her level last night.

    i bet the audience walked out singing “im still standing standing standing standing STANDING” lol “i let goooo i let god, i let goooo i let god”

    great exposure for Mo this is gonna send her NEW HIT SINGLE to the top 20 for sure by next week =) after only 3 weeks on the charts!

    BTW does any1 kno when the performances will be avail on amazon? they said on the show that they will be up for purchase =)

  49. truth tella February 6, 2010

    um usher should be ashamed of himself for signing justin bieber………he cannnot sing or dance……his vocals are always off key and shaky…..more than beyonce during one of her up tempos.he’s young but he’ll be 16 soon so i’m not holding back. get his ass out of the kitchen if he can’t take the heat. do we all need to be reminded that jojo was just 13 and could outdo all of his garbage and half the mess that was on that stage tonight…..and who let him on bet? jojo has the same r&b sound to her music and yet she can get no love from urban channels…….what’s up with that? i’ve seen many people who sing better than him and they’re not trying. these people today are nothing to scream about their songs are just catchy….taylor swift…..rihanna…..justin bieber……etc. chris brown is never on point vocally live but at least he makes up for it with the dancing whether its always michael jackson like or not. he does good at times but i feel like he’s been getting by on the good looks and nice smile and now it’s not happening since the incident. he needs a vocal coach because no one will stand for the garbage vocals from him anymore. settling for just being a fabulous dancer…….not cutting it…..i can’t listen to dancing on an album. he doesn’t have very strong vocals but can deliver a nice performance when he tries. as of right now i see that him and justin bieber were signed because of their looks and chris with his looks and dancing. let talent rule the industry again! rihanna just does not belong in it! thank goodness she wasn’t there! monica did great aside from a few wobbles there but hey i have to cut her some slack…she’s just coming back and it’s been years and her voice is sounding like the old days again. i think maybe she was just excited. her new single is amazing and should do wondeful….let real music shine!!!! jazmine sullivan has always been plus sized but that dress didn’t compliment her at all….she’s still amazingly talented though. i forgot keri performed (as usual……she never does it for me) and why that song of all songs? it’s ancient and i see she’s milking her biggest hit until it’s bone dry and if i have to choose the best of the night it goes to mary j. blige. when does she ever deliver a bad vocal? never. 2nd would be monica.

  50. misty February 6, 2010

    YASSSSSSSSSS….Monica & Chris SHUT IT DOWN for me!! I liked them all but they did it! And like someone mentioned earlier..yea Keri sang her own song and it has no correlation to the disaster and in her case she ain’t at least change it up so y is her performance different from Beyonce’s Halo? And on top of that her vocals were not up to par…Keri, stick to writing please!
    All the same, everyone did good and Chris…HOLD YOUR HEAD UP!

  51. I am Hatian February 6, 2010

    HAITI MOUIN REMEN OU CHERI!

    Monica real talk had me in tears for my country.

  52. miss A February 6, 2010

    yeey chris brownnnn i missed him on tv 🙁 :D:D go breezyy

  53. Annie’ February 6, 2010

    I was genuinely happy for Chris. I don’t know about anybody else but I was happy for him and he looked it too.

    Monica is Monica, her voice is there. If you people didn’t know it before you do now.

    @Jessica you got jokes.

  54. Gemita February 6, 2010

    woooooooh! Monica did it sooooo great, and she looks so beautiful with this white hat.
    I can’t hardly wait till her cd comes out on 23 March!!!!!!!!!

  55. cutiepie February 6, 2010

    Monica hands down had the best performance no doubt.

  56. TOO S*** February 6, 2010

    everyone was good
    BUT CHRIS BROWN and MONICA was the greatest,,,,,

  57. tris February 6, 2010

    TRUTH TELLA MY ASS! who are you all to say rihanna doesnt belong in the industry when clearly she has a fan base and an audience who loves her. there is room for them all.even keri hilson and her wack ass.even SHE has a fan base.

    ps..are you really comparing taylor swift and rihanna’s vocals?? at least rihanna can go through a performance without her voice cracking and she can hit her notes…nasal voice or not i’d rather listen to rihanna live ANYTIME.

    ANYWAYS…chris used a damn backing track that sang most of the song for him so i cant praise him their, however he did entertain me so he gets points..still not happy that he’s back in the spotlight after what he did to y riri 🙂 but thats just the hater in me coming out..i wish him luck in life..

    lLOVED busta rhymes track by the way.. i HAVE to get that

  58. Janae89 February 6, 2010

    First off let me say Mary J & Jazmine straight murdered that performance. I don’t care what no hater gotta say about Jazmine’s weight. SO THE F*** WHAT! She and Mary did that song. I got chills when I watched it & the song was so appropriate for that night.

    Monica took us to church. I love Monica so much and I can’t wait for her album. She was amazing.

    And it was sooooooo good to see Chris back on television. He’s been blackballed for the past year and I’m happy to see him perform again on TV. That warmed my heart.

  59. Abcd February 6, 2010

    Yea, the standout performance of the night was Monica, she really did her thing. Chris did well also, it seemed as if people are welcoming him back to the industry…

  60. Aunt Jackie February 6, 2010

    Every one was really good, loved this telethon!

    Chris Brown SLAYED, SLAYED, SLAYED!!!!!

    He showed that: Talent (Singing, Dancing, Stage Presence) + Looks = Star

  61. Dave February 6, 2010

    Wyclef and Akon were the best . Yaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

  62. LazyBoi February 6, 2010

    Monica gave me chills… I loved it when she held that note! She knows how to give a performance. Loved Loved that Chris Breezy was back on stage too… For me those two were the highlights of the show!!!

  63. truth tella February 6, 2010

    @TRIS are you serious? theres no denying she has a fanbase and an audience….no one ever said she didnt but she has it for all of the wrong reasons and none of them are because of her talent because she has none. she walks across the stage with a mic. at least she used to have dancers. she can’t get through as performance without cracking or hit the proper notes like her video’s display or the album….live performances are always supposed to be better. rihanna cannot sing. plain and simple. tiffany evans was right about that. rihanna is a model and popular because of her catcthy songs, her beauty, and her clothes and her haircuts. she never has her clothes on anymore and she’s clearly trying to keep people talking by wearing the crap she wears and being naked all of the time. that’s the last resort when you can’t sing. she wasn’t dropped when teairra mari was…..they saw who could bring them more money and who they could turn into what they wanted her to be which is a pop star. rihanna can’t sing so of course she went with it. she’s not origninal at all. everything she does is from a writer and image consultants. teairra mari is clearly the more talented out of the two but she was dropped because she doesn’t look like a model and has a mind of her own and her debut didn’t sell as many records as rihanna’s. rihanna only went gold and teairra sold 300,000. with teairra’s talent she will be huge. rihanna is a model who just thinks she can sing by what people tell her and the way they fix her voice and auto tune her s*** in the studio. she’s nothing more than someone who wails and whines into a mic. she takes herself so serious as an artist and no one else does. without her endorsments she’d be broke. chris brown made her more famous and no it’s not okay what he did but she is not innocent. also she centered the whole album around him (big shocker there) to gain more publicity but it was an epic fail. she only has sold 500,000 so far and she’s shipped a million which is the only reason rated r is platinum because they hope she’ll sell a million. by the way at least keri hilson can sing and write and dance…she needs to show she can be a solo act and be a hit but at least she has talent. it’s time to wipe all of these image over talent non singing ass people out of the industry. more jazmine sullivan! more tamia! more jojo! more ne-yo! more trey songz! more real talent! by the way since rihanna has such and audience how pathetic is it that her album was priced for 99 cents and still didn’t go number one? that is as low as it gets and thank go her ship is sinking slowly because she has no talent.

  64. cutiegurl February 6, 2010

    @truth tella
    lol you are sooo right, and btw she is at 600,000.
    Worldwide she is not doing so bad but yea this album CANNOT TOUCH GGGB. Her lack of talent will not continue to keep her relevant in the long run. Rated R was a big step downward IMO and her singles are not doing so well, still no U.S. #1 and Russian roulette is nowhere to be found.
    certified platinum does not=platinum. I wonder how long it will take to ACTUALLY reach that number? But hey she is young, black and successful and im honestly happy for her. Beautiful girl too, if only she can upgrade my closet lol

  65. DaPoetryMan February 6, 2010

    Follow Monica on Twitter !!! She also tries to respond to as many tweets as she can. She has responded to me before. She is such a sweet heart. 🙂

    Monica’s Performance was HOT!!!!!

    March 23, 2010

  66. antertain February 6, 2010

    Ohhhh Monica was in the Zone!!!!!

    Busta Rhymes and Chris Breezy were very very good.

    Jazmine must never be slept on cus she a major talent. Mary just does it for me cus she always taps into her emotions.

    Some cool performances

  67. Tia February 6, 2010

    Truth tella please woman, with the essays. Chris brown has talent and a voice. If you listened to him working you would know. And if you’re touting Trey Songz ….listen to the collaborations that they’ve done and it’s hard to tell them apart. It you your damn opinion but don’t make it seem as you have a majority vote or it’s any more special than anyone else.

    As far as the Rihanna essay after the Chris Brown rant, both you and Tris need to kill these long ass rants. Who is going to really read that s*** and who really gives a damn what you think @ the end of the day? You sound like some jealous ass artist/wanna be insider that can get their feet in the door…. pfft

  68. Tia February 6, 2010

    *that’s CAN’T get their feet in the door….any other typo…eh

  69. HA February 6, 2010

    OK can somebody explain to me why Keri performed Knock you down????? I thought this was for haiti??? People went in on bey for performing halo…atlease she changed the lyrics for haiti…oh yea Chris Brown’s vocal runs are amazing…

  70. Jasmine February 6, 2010

    Monica’s performance did it for me. She is my girl. I’m “Still Standing”. Chris Brown is back yall!!!

  71. truth tella February 6, 2010

    tia no one is jealous or wants the jobs you threw out so there goes your assumptions. im stating facts. chris needs vocal work! period! i never said he couldnt sing but his vocals aren’t as good as his dancing and if he wants to stick around work is needed. trey and chris don’t sound similar except for when they work together and i can imagine the producers telling trey to lighten up so you don’t outshine chris and it’s the same with alica keys and beyonce on “put it in a love song”. beyonce cleary sounds better than her. i have all of chris’s albums and love them from start to end but his vocals are never better live. just the facts sweetheart. @ cutiegurl thank you so much! i’m happy for rihanna and not jealous of her because if i’m going to sell records i’d like to do it based off of talent and not catchy songs written for me and the tabloids and paparazzi in my face all of the time. she is front of a paps camera more than a microphone. she should stick to taking pictures, posing, and strutting because that’s what she does best. at least ciara has a little bit of a voice and can dance her ass of and looks better and ciara can act. i’m rooting for her more than rihanna because i don’t see her improving on her vocals in the future like ashanti did. it’s been four albums and it just doesn’t seem to be getting any better…only worse. rihanna is why ciara isn’t popular. they’d rather see what publicity stunt or crazy move rihanna will do next than to watch ciara do something based off of talent. fantasy ride as alot better than rated r but ciara’s label needs to shape up because all of the delay’s caused people to lose interest. if they do it this time cici needs to jump ship. by the way rihanna and amerie are on the same label……..why does rihanna get more promo when amerie possesses more talent in her pinky toe than rihanna has in her whole body not to mention amerie looks way better and she’s like ten years older……smh….let real talent reign because once is does the so called “rihanna reign” will let up. i’m happy to see a black woman on top but not the way she does it. beyonce goes about it with class and rihanna does it with ass. real talent where are you?!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  72. Jace February 6, 2010

    LOVE MOMICA. LOVE JAZ!!!!!!! Can’t wait for both albums, two AMAZING voices!

  73. Tia February 6, 2010

    LOL@ TRT, there goes another one. Girl, I wish I would…just wow…I’m sorry I can’t read pass my name….LMAO….I hope you had a banging dissertation much as you like to write and what’s more I really hope someone read that s***… O’ queen of philosophy!!!! LMAO

    bye girl, fly girl!

  74. rightround(U.S.A pride!- help HAITI!) February 6, 2010

    Why is Ciara’s name in the tags? she wasn’t there…

    I think she was suppose to be but dropped out at the last minute. probably something work related.

    @SHO YA RIGHT

    YEAH I SAID MONICA’S VOCALS WERE A LITTLE SHAKEY AND IT WAS AN EMOTIONAL PERFORMANCE BECAUSE HER VOCALS [WERE] SHAKEY. IT’S NOT LIKE I’M LYING ABOUT IT. YEAH EMOTION DOES AFFECT YOUR VOCALS HOWEVER SHE WASN’T UP THERE CRYING AND WEEPING SHE WAS STILL DOING HER THANG, THAT DOESN’T TAKE AWAY FROM THE FACT THAT SHE WAS STRUGGLING VOCALLY. I’VE SEEN HER PERFORM THIS SONG A FEW TIMES (MONIQUE SHOW) AND SHE SOUNDED SIMILAR TO THIS PERFORMANCE HERE. I STILL LOVE MONICA AND HER VOICE IS AWESOME AND I LOVED THIS PERFORMANCE BECAUSE OF THE RAW EMOTION. I LOVE THAT! SO YEAH THAT IS ALL.

    I would HARDLY say Monica “struggled” while singing “Still Standing” I think we listened to two different songs!

    I agree about the raw emotion, but Monica “Struggling” NAWWWW not for a second.

    TEAM MONICA!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    STAND OUT PERFORMANCE OF THE NIGHT!

    Its funny how 98% of the comments are saying Monica was the BEST of the evening! The other 2 % are just saying she was 2nd best! Yes i agree 100%. Then there were the 2 or 3 comments saying she struggled…………. No way, she just let the “spirit” take over. One thing about Music- Music is healing for ones soul. Think about “everything to me” when i hear it i think about how GOD is “everything to me” and some of you may think about a spouse, auntie, unlce sibling etc……music touches us like nothing else on earth! So if Monica touched you as 98% on this blog has said….then shes done her job……I cant speak for Mo but im sure she just wants her music to touch the listener.and if its only one she touches then so be it but from the overwhelming responses not just on this blog but many others…….shes touched millions on friday. Thanks Mo for your ministry……..keep blessing people just as you have for so many years!!! Your fans love YOU because YOU love us! 03/23/10!
