    I can’t take Usher and his nappy nyam out head piece. Those skinny jeans look quite good on him though. But I’m hear crying! How can he go from songs like ‘U Got it Bad,’ You Make Me Wanna,’ ‘Confessions,’ ‘Yeah,’ etc to this OMG and DJ crap!

    *runs off sobbing in search for 8701 and Confessions*

    Love Shakira, as for BEP…

    ugh excuse all the typos, the tears are blurring my vision

    The show was wack.

    Shakira stole that”waka waka” song from a cameroonian group and never gave them the credit they deserve.

    SMH to Usher and his sellout a*s singing his sellout anthems. *heading to youtube to listen to “Confessions part II” and “Nice and Slow”

    Usher was f****** s***!!! I don´t know what some people talk about when they say he looks old… you wish you look like him at any point of your life. Those pants, oh my G, they fit him so well!!! lol
    BEP with the same s*** over and over again. They should disappear

    Shaki killed it as usual. She’ll go down in history as one of music’s greatest entertainers. World-class act!

    Usher is mediocre now. What a sell out. He’s the new ke$ha. He cant dance anymore and his singing is craptastic. That’s why he’s doing the auto-tune poptart s*** now. Easier sales and you can lip sync not like back in the day with real performers. He was good 10yrs ago. What happened??

    usher and shakira slayed the crowd was amazing great energy

    This show was a mess! The French do a really good job shutting out any Afro-French or Black French speaking artists because there were none there! The show suffered because of it. They only allow American entertainers of color. What a shame! Thank god for Shakira and Usher. BEP is …. a mess.

    Shakira DID NOT STEAL That song. She sampled it. Since the song came out she has always stated where its from. There are interviews to prove it where she says the song is originally from Cameroon. Don’t try it!

    I’m so sick of Usher performing OMG and DJ Got Us Fallin In Love everywhere…

    He needs to perform his new single “More”.

    After all of that mess that took place in Germany, you mean to tell me that Usher isn’t hiding out? Ha.

    I find Shakira to be boring, because it is always the same thing for an entertainer of her caliber. With that being said, she nails belly dancing like crazy. Her moves are like a Cobra’s.

  11. CHECKMATE January 23, 2011

    Have to say… Shakira outshone Usher here. In vocals, live performance, and audience interaction she was better.

    @Mishka There is only one swagger jacking Beyaawnce. Shakira is not her, sorry…

    And she was so sweet to sing the Marseilles song for the French people. Very kind of her!!!!!!!

  14. Firework January 23, 2011

    @MISHKA I agree..This waka waka was like an army song when I was growin up (I m from Cameroon) and I heard the b**** say she wrote it I had respect for her but after that I was disappointed…smh
    But she did killed the dance on stage

    Shakira is the best. She had the best performance of the night and she is one of the best performers out there. Unfortunately, she has been so underrated for a while, mainly in US. And it doesn’t surprise me ’cause she isn’t doing euro-s***-dance music like everybody else.
    Usher is great too. I don’t blame him for the direction he has taken in his career. R&B music doesn’t sell album no more, we aren’t in 2004. If an artist wants to keep his image relevant must need to release europop songs. That how the industry has been working! These kinda song are what the public and the radios are consuming.
    Black Eyed Peas is a joke. What a f****** awful performance! I always knew they aren’t great live, but that one is pretty bad. And that ridiculous dance that asian dude was doing? Awkward. If you can’t dance, don’t even try it!

    It’s confusing with Shakira. She has a huge international fanbase and was huge in the US. Then she made a dance electro album (She Wolf) and that flopped but then going back to her roots on Sale El Sol flopped in the US too. I don’t know what the US wants from her…

  17. RiCiBey(Breezy) January 24, 2011

    I LOVE Usher, but my lord this performance was horrible. I pray he does better in the long run…

    BEP..hot pile of s***.

    Shakira, had the best performance of the night. She doesnt get the recognition she deserves…

    chris brown buying his own songs on itunes trentina writing comments on his own blog….

    Usher: Even though this wasn’t his best live performance, I think he did pretty well (considering that he is recovering from an illness).

    Shakira was awesome. Its funny how she’s been in the industry for some time now and she is still an underated artitst.

    Black Eye Peas: I didn’t event waste my time with that garbage group

  21. Leynin May 4, 2011

    Shakira sucked as usual. She is not able to write a song so she stole samples/whatever you want to call it, SHE STOLE MUSIC, it’s so pathetic. Now her career is going down due the fact that her latest two albums were complete flops in the States
