Keri Hilson Sings ‘The Christmas Song’ In New York

Published: Saturday 20th Nov 2010 by Trent

Keri Hilson has been trying her best to prove her vocal ability in her most recent performances. On Thursday she decided to tackle ‘The Christmas Song’ at the lighting of the UNICEF Snowflake at the 5th Avenue Presbyterian Church in New York. Look below to see her rendition via Rap-Up TV:

Aside from a few sour notes and a couple unnecessary vocal runs, that was a respectable performance. It’s amazing what Hilson can do when she doesn’t let her backtrack do all of the work.  Hopefully she sticks to that approach and never lip-syncs again (unless she has no choice).

Thoughts?

    She sounds great! SO… i’m gonna ignore the fact that she looks an absolute mess, & her hair is uneven.

  3. ester November 20, 2010

    Yaay keri

  4. cici November 20, 2010

    This b**** takes horrible pictures as of late, good vocals though

  5. SupaCi November 20, 2010

    IDK why yall act like Keri Boy can’t sing. Make Love, Tell Him The Truth, Breaking Point, etc. all prove that.

  6. fan November 20, 2010

    Truthfully she sounds like she has to take a breath almost after each note. Trying to sounds like somebody else other than herself. What’s with all the ruins? She’s not X-Trina, Beyonce or Miarah or Whitney for that matter and it doesn’t work for her. Who was she trying to sing like? She mess up the song point blank.

Yall need to be truthful and tell the truth, she sounded a hott ass mess. Goat alley cat would have sounded better than this.

  12. Traci Summers November 20, 2010

I LIKE AALIYAHS RENDITION AND KERI HILSONS BOTH OF THEM KILLED IT..AND IT SHOWS YOU DONT HAVETO OVERSING AND SHOUT TO PERFORM A SONG… SO STOP BRINGIN UP BEYONCE.. GO HEAD MISS KERI

  13. bunch of crazies November 20, 2010

    She sound great. I bet I know someone else that can’t pull this song off or anyother Christmas song off at that

    Good Job Keri

  14. Jamie November 20, 2010

    Keri did very well. I’m pretty sure this performance was for a good cause. Therefore, comparisons are not even necessary. If you’re Beyonce or Christina. Moreover, runs aren’t even their signatures. All runs belongs to The Clark Sisters. Remember that!!!

  15. UGh November 20, 2010

    Keri could sing. I have no idea what Trent is bitching about.

    Good job and i her outfit is cute.

  16. Keesha November 20, 2010

    This is the first time that I have heard her sing live and not sound a mess.

  17. tee November 20, 2010

    glad shes starting to step her live vocals up
    a lot of artist make great songs but cant sing them (or anything else) live well
    if you cant put on a good show then I can never be a fan
    so bravo for her putting forth some effort,keep it up and I might get that album because pretty girl rock is a beast

  18. drfenty November 20, 2010

    Keith Hilson stays losing ➡

  19. lala November 20, 2010

    She was good

  20. JAYLA November 20, 2010

    @DRFENTY

    SHUT YOUR F** ASS UP

  21. Be BETTER not “Bitter!” November 20, 2010

    I agree that this was a decent performance from Ms. Hilson. However, whomever credited her singing ability with the studip songs that she has done must know that a lot of pop Pretenders can hit a note once in the studio but most artists sing outside of there range and ability in the studio with those one time performances and then always #FAIL to be able to perform the song live that same way. In the studio you can sing one line and pause and edit together and get a perfect verse as oppose to live SINGING all the way thru. However, the fact remains that if you are a SINGER you should be able to SING and your recorded music should sound the same when you PERFORM if you are a PERFORMER!

    Here is a List of Current Lackluster Singers for anyone who doesn’t understand:

    Rihanna, Keri Hilson, Katy Perry, Kesha, Trey Songz, JLS, Ciara, Cheryl Cole, and this list goes on and on but these are just a few of the THATGRAPEJUICE REGULARS!

  22. Beystanbish November 21, 2010

    Alright now miscarried baby. Show these b****** what you working with. That was good.

  23. DRFENTY November 21, 2010

    JAYLA = 😡

    and will remain that way till Keri Hilson becomes relevant ➡

  24. ~aMaZiNG.Lee~ November 21, 2010

    Meh! Skeri still just tries way too hard for me! Everthing about her is mediocre and LAME!

    She didn’t sound that bad though, I guess.

  25. ~aMaZiNG.Lee~ November 21, 2010

  26. rob November 21, 2010

    started off a lil shaky but she got into it as it went along , i like

  27. MichelleWFan November 21, 2010

    She was so freaking cute at the end !

    Mmmh.

  28. Landen’s Fury! November 21, 2010

    NICE, SHE IS ONE OF FEW SINGERS OUT RIGHT NOW THAT

    CAN SING WELL ENOUGH THAT SHE CAPTIVATES YOUR ATTENTION.

    RIHANNA AND KATY ARE NOT ON THIS LIST! ITS NO OFFENSE, BUT

    THE LAST SEVERAL PERFORMANCES BY HER AND HER BFF HAVE

    BEEN ABSOLUTELY HORRENDOUS.

    GREAT JOB!

  31. VA STAND UP!! November 21, 2010

    @DrFenty: You know you idol could NEVER sound this could live! EVER! She proves that EVERYTIME she hits the stage!

    #SIT

    Anywho, Keri sounded great! That was really beautiful! I knew she could sing, she just needs to choose songs that showcase her vocal range and stop over singing trying to prove that she can. WIth the right material and stage presence she can go far in the industry.

    I hate that blond on her though. She needs a new hair color ASAP!

  32. VA STAND UP!! November 21, 2010

    @Dr Fenty: Rihanna is only relevant because of her looks cause she can’t sing or perform to save her life! She is the most over rated puppet in the industry! She proves just how shallow and messed up this industry is. We would rather praise looks over talent. Rihanna would NEVER make it on American Idol!

  33. mindgames November 21, 2010

    haters won’t ever amount to anything 🙂 stay mad

  34. RosaRubbel November 21, 2010

    Very nice.

  35. ISTANFORCHRISBREEZY November 21, 2010

    awww you’re so mean
    why you saying she can’t sing she really can trust me listen to “energy” or “knock you down”
    i understand rihanna ,but why keri hilson the girl is real talented

  36. ISTANFORCHRISBREEZY November 21, 2010

    VA stand up
    yeah i agree with you i’m not feeling the blonde on her she’s gorgeous but that colour needs to go
    oh yeah ingore MsFenty she thinks anyone who ain’t rihanna is a “flop” “lesser person” or “losing”
    and yet she gets so mad when anyone dares say anything about her girl

  37. antertain November 21, 2010

    Well Done Keri
    Her tone sounded very good on this xmas song

    I really liked it and she upped her live vocals in recent times so im feelin her

  38. Trip November 21, 2010

    That was awful. Stop acting like she wasn’t cracking and crumbling all over the place.
