  7. Dave February 14, 2010

    @VaunTV she actually did, but we know her voice is small. The beat played over it. & we know the songs she performed are not really vocal songs, but whatev.

  8. SadeLover February 14, 2010

    she didnt even sing hahaha!! she should be a rapper maybe

  9. haila February 14, 2010

    I will continue to support this young woman. I wish her success and pray she doesn’t acquire a stupid arrogant attitude like most of these “entertainers” have. She does in fact have talent.

  10. MYZONE21 February 14, 2010

    My girl works so hard during her performances…that’s why I love her. LMAO @ the 5:40 mark. The iphone was all up in Cici’s goodies lol

  12. GeeMan February 14, 2010

    She slayed that performance her energy was crazy and the crowd ate it up. Her movement was on point as always. Job well down Ciara. A beast of a performer after queen Janet.

  13. I am Hatian February 14, 2010

    Ci Ci did great! Awesome performance!

  14. Aunt Jackie February 14, 2010

    Love ciara! She’s talked about her voice, and how she knows it isn’t her strong point. But the bish can dance better than 90% of these industry chicks, and sing ON KEY, although she has limited range.

  15. Mrs. Darren shellychelle Sharper February 14, 2010

    i liked it. I would like to see her sing love more though.

  16. вeяячℓiσuѕ вeα February 14, 2010

    can’t wait til the cd drops

  17. stan February 14, 2010

  18. Pucci February 14, 2010

  19. 123456789 February 14, 2010

  20. g3 February 14, 2010

  21. X,Y,”and Z” February 14, 2010

    Now THIS is how you “command-a-stage!!” I swear, she and CBreezy, should do more videos; if this chick had that ‘Def Jam-hype-machine’ to support her, she’d run-s***!

    ‘Sweatin’ -and-all,’ she’s PURE-FIRE!

    X,Y,”and Z” — OUT!

  22. Its Me Again February 14, 2010

    i want those pants 0_o

  23. B@tch Please February 14, 2010

    She can dance but sing HELL NO. She can take some lesson from RIRI. GOOD DAY

  24. Music Lover February 14, 2010

    It’s one thing for Chris Brown to f*** up his career, but he almost f***** up Ciara’s too. “Turntables” would have been released if he didn’t beat the s*** out of Rihanna. No doubt that song would have made it to number one. Can you guys imagine the choreography that would have been in the video?!

  25. SXSW February 14, 2010

    She’s so awesome!! A real performer gives 100% on stage just like that!!

  26. X,Y,”and Z” February 14, 2010

    @Bitchplease — With Rihanna, being “the powerful vocalist” that-SHE-is, I’m sure she can give the entire-industry a “proper-schooling,” Right? Bwayayahahahahahah…

    @Music_Lover – Shouldn’t you be over at NBs, with the rest of the “F**-Hags?”

    …That said; “World Tours” are NOW being announced; we’ll NOW see who can ‘sell-out venues’; we’ll NOW see the “relevance of Stage-Presence,” and Showmanship!
    You see, not-all, of the world, “fell-for” TMZ’s Bull S*** – as did the American-Mainstream.

    CB has co-produced, co-wrote and choreographed – HIS-Music AND Music video’s; Rihanna CAN’T say that! …And let’s NOT forget that he co-wrote Disturbia – one of HER biggest-hits yet!

    See, if you’ve got “talent”; REAL, RAW, Un-Hyped-Talent, you CAN afford a “f***-up here- and-there!” … Didn’t MJ have enough “talent”, to come-back, after HIS …. “f******-up?” Why SURE – he did! … And it WAS MJ, HIMSELF, who called CBreezy “the Prince-of-Pop” – MJ’s VERY-OWN WORDS!!
    … And, as-far-as, “Turntables,” I’m sure Def Jam wouldn’t allow anything “NOT-of-Rihanna” to “go-#1,” I’m sure they’d have “made-calls and initiated-sabotage”, should IT have started a upward-move, on the charts!

    As a matter of a fact, I’m sure that – hadn’t “Feb 8th” NOT-occurred, Def Jam/Jay Z would have, done-their-best, to sabotage anything CBreezy was-involved-with, given the fact that HE, broke-up with Rihanna, and THEN wanted NOTHING-to-do, with her!
    Can you imagine what “Rated-R” would have done, as-far-as sales, if “Feb 8th” hadn’t have happened! She was given soooo much, and STILL haven’t produced!

    CoverGirl, Matt Kemp and the “music-buying concert/tour-ticket purchasing public” NOW realizes:t RIHANNA IS TOXIC!

    X,Y,”and Z” — OUT!

  27. antertain February 15, 2010

    I think her voice is getting better cus she was hitting them notes in “High Price”

    Dancing is Fire! Body is Fire! Showmanship is Fire! A lot of her songs are Fire!

    Very talented and she has he lane as a performer!!
    Very impressed with her work on the stage so GO CiCi!

    PROMISE is still my fav from her.

  28. hihihihi February 15, 2010

    DEAD@ SAM AND TRENT

    THIS IS BETTER SINGING THAN RIHANNA

    SHE TALKED MOST OF THE SONG AND DIDNT EVNE SING A LOT

    LOSASSSSSSSSSSSSS

  29. TOKYO February 15, 2010

    Ciara ALWAYS Bring it when she performs. EVERYBODY’S KNOWS she is not a strong vocalist.. I don’t understand why it’s still being discussed! Hell, she can perform better than Rihanna’s flat soundin ass.. Rihanna cant dance NOR sing.. but yet she’s getting all the attention. But anyway… when the QUEEN returns, y’all will be jumping on her bandwagon!! #NUFF SAID!

  30. Anndee February 15, 2010

    Rihanna has nothing to do with this post and the fact that she’s mentioned multiple times in so many artist’s threads means she stays on people’s mind and that’s got to be a good thing for her. While I like some of her songs I’ve yet to purchase any of them. Now Ciara I’m a fan of and have bought some of her music because even with her not so strong vocals she is still talented. However, I haven’t seen consistent performances in which she can sing and dance at the same time without compromising the quality of one of those two and it’s usually singing. Worth the watch for her great dancing skills, singing not so much. And before I’m labeled as a hater, I’ll state again that I’m a fan of hers and hope she brings it with her next album.

  31. TOKYODIAMONDS February 15, 2010

    I know.. People just keep getting on my nerves talking about Ci’s vocals when that’s really the only thing they cans ay about her…

  32. HJNJ February 15, 2010

    She dances like a butch to me, no thank you. Way too masculine IMO She acts like a dude.

  33. B@tch Please February 15, 2010

    Its the music biz b**** need to take some vocal lesson. At least RIRI can hold a note and sings live every time.

    She can dance but that should come second behind singing something she can’t do. MESS GOOD DAY 🙂

  34. Anne February 15, 2010

    How can this be considered giving 100 % when she barely sang a note. If Rihanna is called a model than Ciara should be called a DANCER because her performances are rarely about singing. I don’t care how great her dancing is (which gets very REPITITIVE) her lack of vocal display and ability ruins it for me.

  35. Anndee February 15, 2010

    @ ANNE, I had to put a disclaimer out there to not be labeled a hater since I’m actually a fan, but I agree with your comment. When I listen to her CD I can’t see her dancing, but when I watch her perform it’s ALL about the dancing. I like this blog and it’s obviously not mine, but I think it would be fair to label her a dancer when it comes to live performances.

  36. Lolly London-UK February 15, 2010

    very Janet…

  37. 12345 February 15, 2010

    she looks like those brazillian tranies that come here to Portugal to work as prostitutes.
    She is in the music industry how can you say she is a great artist when she is making all the dance moves that a person that has hiphop lessons do rofl

  38. RANDOM February 15, 2010

    actually she seems quite feminine its just that she LOOKS masculine,dont care either way as i like to LISTEN to music more than anything else.

  39. tia February 15, 2010

    Get it CICI!!!!!! her body is sick…..regardless to what everybody else talkin about….we all know she has times where she looks masculine but we should only worry when she puts on girly clothes in looks like a football player….as of right now she still looks girlie no matter what she has on……and she killed that performance…im no CiCi stan but i swear the industry needs more PERFORMERS notice the word PERFORMERS like her

  40. Jennifer February 16, 2010

    HATERS like Shut the f*** up!

    @ she can’t sing- ?????????????? B****!!!!!! listen to high price and look how she ‘s dancing and tell me she can’t sing. Get your ears checked. She CAN sing. Just because she doesn’t yell like Beyonce doesn’t mean she can’t sing. PLUS she’s actually dancing (As in technical moves) while singing.

    @ Janet Jackson- CIARA IS NOTHING LIKE JANET JACKSON. Janet Jackson and Ciara are two different artists.

    @Rihanna- All Rihanna does is walk around and she still sounds horrible singing.
    Rihanna is a model with an average voice.

  41. MushyLove_1992 February 16, 2010

    Thats how you work the stage! The haters should take notes and give them to their favs. Maybe they can learn something…

  42. lisa February 16, 2010

    I TOLD YALL CIARA IS THE BIZ, SHE IS GREAT ENTERTAINER, SHE DON’T JUST BE JUMPING UP AND DOWN RUNNING AROUND THE STAGE LIKE A WILD ANIMAL LIKE BEYONCE!

  43. anonymous February 23, 2010
