Katy Perry & Kanye West Stun ‘Idol’ With Out Of This World Performance

Published: Friday 22nd Apr 2011 by Trent

Rihanna and Britney Spears better enjoy having the #1 song on the Billboard Hot 100 while they can because there is a superstar duo who want another shot at the top spot. Katy Perry and Kanye West took the ‘American Idol’ audience into space with a dazzling performance of ‘E.T’ just moments ago.

The song is currently perched at #2 on the Hot 100 and with continuous growth on radio, this rendition may be all that it needs to rule the tally once again. Watch all the action below:

    Not bad. I was kinda skeptical about the performance at first, but she actually sounded good.

  2. AQUAFRSH April 22, 2011

    she sounds amazing! she was singing LIVE and amazingly!! and the performance was SOOOO GREAT

  3. Kahari April 22, 2011

    While I enjoy the song, and the performance was out of this world, ther choreography was not needed and the little appearance featuring Kanye could have been scrapped. The vocals were solid. Good job, Katy! 🙂

  4. YOUR Queen! April 22, 2011

    That was cute, her vocals were actually good, Quite surprised seen as she’s always hit and miss! Still love this song though, Katy did a good job! LOL at the little swaying of the hips though…

  5. iLoveXtina April 22, 2011

    Yass Katy keep training them vocals. She just needs better stage presence though.

  6. Judge & Jury April 22, 2011

    She lipped that s***. The backing track and her vocals dont match. Kanye was live.

  7. Eric April 22, 2011

    Cool performance! Could’ve been more energetic. Katy was too flat!
    Her flashing the devil sign and saying “they don’t understand you” at the same time really freaked me out.

  8. TIMMI April 22, 2011

    Wooo Katy slayed.

    #Thatawkwardmomentwhen The featured rapper on a song is done with his part and stands around awkwardly shuffling and spouting random “uh-huh”s and “yeh”s.

    Gets me each time.

  9. Kenudigme April 22, 2011

    SHE USED BEYONCE LASER LIGHTS….

  10. TIMMI April 22, 2011

    @JUDGE & JURY

    You’re always up in the comment section stating your b******* as if it’s fact. This is very clearly live, did you even watch the video? There are several moments where you can hear breathing, and also moments where her voice shakes because she does a sudden dance move. She also randomly shouts in the performance. There is also a part where she delays the lyric because she’s focusing on her movement.

    And answer me this Einstein, why the f*** would she take time to prerecord vocals that don’t match with the backing track?

    Just shut the f*** up, seriously.

  11. Justice198 April 22, 2011

    @Kenudigme lol…if you want to be technical, Usher used them for “Yeah” and way before that J LO for “Waiting For Tonight”. just sayin-

    But this was actually a good showing for Katy

  12. ImgunnacheckUboo April 22, 2011

    I like the lights on that outfit. I would stan so hard for Katy if she were a better vocalist and wrote practically any of her own s***. But I have to have some standards.

  13. mobwife (a.k.a..i’m a s&m lovin’ billy goat) April 22, 2011

    Ummm, I love how prancing around on stage in a strange outfit while hunching your shoulders is considered “the best dance performance ever”! And what’s with this E.T. theme in every song these days? Honestly I thought that BTW by Gaga was a mess but this has got to be the worse. What exactly was Kanye’s purpose on this song? He bought nothing to it. But hey, they racked up another #1 song on the Hot 100 pop chart so wooo, yeeha, good for them!

  14. Auntie Jackie April 22, 2011

    She sounded great, but I didn’t quite like the choreography. She was stiff.

  15. hybridavenue April 22, 2011

    For all the ppl that believe she sang live your sadly mistaken. That was clearly a backing track she lipsynched to. her mouth was not making the same noices that were coming through the mic

  16. ヅ•·.·´¯`·.·•-ΛALEXISR-♩ ♪ ♫ ♬ ★ ☆ ✰ T.I.P.•·.·´¯`·.·•ヅ April 22, 2011

    @Judge & Jury

    LMAO. That was obviously not totally lipped lol. Some parts were questionable but you can tell when something is live.

  17. Mike April 22, 2011

    I really wish artists would be more concerned with the quality of their music more so than their stage antics. Granted she didn’t sound as awful as usual (I wonder what’s up with those mics at American Idol because they even made Rihanna sound good) she still looked ridiculous.

    Gaga’s whole stage theatrics s*** that’s rubbed off on other artists is getting old. it was fun a year ago and in 09, but now it’s looking try-hard and stupid.

  18. Robier April 22, 2011

    She sang dat. I like when her voice listens to her

  19. True Blue April 22, 2011

    It’s clear that she kept the dancing to a minimum to focus on her vocals. She even avoided going out of her range (for once) and kept her voice steady. Very good job, Katy. I still don’t know what Kanye adds to this song, but whatever. AI must be forcing guest performers to step their game up, lol.

  20. The King April 22, 2011

    That song sounds like Queen’s song “We will rock you”…just a thought…hot performance…btw.

  21. True Blue April 22, 2011

    @ ImGunnaCheckYouBoo:

    Katy does write her own songs.

    @ Mike:

    Stage theatrics have been around long before GaGa even existed. Stop trying to credit her with something she clearly didn’t invent.

  22. True Blue April 22, 2011

    @ The King:

    I personally don’t hear it, but she does cite them as one of her influences.

  23. KoreanDream April 22, 2011

    I honestly cannot watch American performances anymore. Korean artists perform so amazingly every week on their programming that this is just unacceptable. Where is the effort? It’s like she doesn’t care at all!

    Shaky vocals, stiff stage presence, and no choreography from Katy herself at all.

  24. KaVion April 22, 2011

    Positives:
    Katy’s vocals
    Effects
    Costumes
    Kanye

    Negatives:
    That damn choreo.
    Katy & Kanye had ZERO chemistry.

    Great performance!

  25. KaVion April 22, 2011

    @KOREAN DREAM
    Chile…that’s low-key prejudiced o.O

  26. KoreanDream April 22, 2011

    @Kavion
    How so?

  27. BDABOSS April 22, 2011

    Her vocals were on point. I don’t think that she lipped this, because if she did I’m sure she would have moved a little bit more.

  28. Jim April 22, 2011

    This was an awesome performance? Really? Maybe if I was drunk it would be better.

  29. KaVion April 22, 2011

    @KOREAN DREAM
    Well that’s putting all American artists in a box & below Korean artists. It’s kind of no different than calling Americans stupid, and Koreans intelligent.

    I know you didn’t mean it in that manner though,,

    & it was a great performance!

  30. KoreanDream April 22, 2011

    @Kavion
    No, it’s not at all. It’s not even that I didn’t mean it that way (though I didn’t; that’s beside the point), it’s just that you read what I wrote incorrectly. I said that I couldn’t watch American artists perform any more. This was a TV performance, so I’m obviously referring to the American artists out right now, promoting and performing (Katy, Rihanna, Ke$ha), and the Korean artists out right now (Big Bang, f[x]). Comparing them, there is nothing wrong with putting these American artists below Korean artists. They’re much worse performers.

    How did you turn a commentary on performances into a society-level insult?

  31. Ariana April 22, 2011

    I don’t like her voice at all, her tone is so annoying but she was singing live, so props to her.
    I believe Kanye makes this song bearable, without him I really doubt the song would have scored #1 on Billboard; however still it’s so weird to see him working with these kind of singers, not hating on Perry but I had a whole different idea about West’s “artistry”. He had taken some unexpected and strange choices lately (Kardashian, anyone?)

  32. Kavion April 22, 2011

    She still sounds horrible live. Her songs are to high for her limited vocals. As a result, she sounds unnatural and bad from singing in a rigid and forced way to sound in tune. She should sing songs more suited to her voice ,or improve her vocal range.

    Beyonce’s s**** who pollute the world is on itunes now. Please go buy it to make her look less of a loser to Gaga.

  33. KaVion April 22, 2011

    @KOREAN DREAM
    Well if I said Black artists are much more talented than White artists would that not be prejudiced at all?

    That’s just what I saw it as..I don’t know, maybe it’s because I’m so used to people putting Americans beneath Asians as if we’re inferior people. To me, saying one nationality/race is more talented than another is equally as offensive as saying one’s smarter than another..

  34. KoreanDream April 22, 2011

    @FakeKavion
    Why weren’t you blocked? O_O

  35. KaVion April 22, 2011

    Well, would you look at that. My evil, punk ass twin is back to play.

    B**** you have something to say? Change your gravatar & step the f*** up.

  36. KaVion April 22, 2011

    @KOREAN DREAM
    Sam said he blocked him, and he was gone for a while! What the he’ll happened?

  37. KoreanDream April 22, 2011

    @Kavion
    I think your irritation with Asians being put above Americans at times is what made you misread my comment. I said Korean ARTISTS were better than American ARTISTS. The artists is extremely important, Kavion; I would never put Koreans above Americans. But talent-wise, hell yes they’re better. There are maybe 1 or 2 American artists releasing music right now that I would consider more talented than Korean artists.

    I’m also not saying that the Korean artists are better because they’re Korean. It’s just that they have so much more talent.

  38. Sisa April 22, 2011

    I liked this, she was definitely a bit stiff but I guess she was trying to focus on her singing which isn’t a bad thing. She just needs to work on it more, but hey, Rihanna did great last time and she’s been doing this for 6-7 years so I have some hope for Katy as well whose only on her second cd. And Kanye… no clue why he’s there.

  39. KoreanDream April 22, 2011

    @Kavion
    New e-mail? TGJ blocked me AGAIN, I think, so I tweeted Sam (since Trent never seems to give a damn).

  40. ryan james April 22, 2011

    LMAO!
    Stolen Beyonce’s laser ????? LMAO! Usher and MJ used them way before Bey.

    Beyonce’s single is already dropping like a rock on itunes. She is getting slayed left & right.

    i love katy but this was wack just like kayne

  42. TIMMI April 22, 2011

    @KOREANDREAM

    That is prejudice. I am not going to use my efforts in pasting a suitable definition of the word “prejudice” in here – do your own Googling and you will realise how it is prejudice yourself.

    You are also stereotyping. Each time you use plural terms such as “they” and “these”, you are stereotyping. Korean performers aren’t better than all American artists out there, so you need to be more careful with the terms you are using. American artists become international stars, Korean artists don’t.

  43. KaVion April 22, 2011

    @KOREAN DREAM
    I don’t know…so it would be cool if I said Black artists are better artists than White artists? Lol.

    I need to see these damn K-Pop stars! Lol, I bet none of them got a voice like my baby 😉

    Lol, Trent never does give a damn! Sam seems so much more kind..

  44. KaVion April 22, 2011

    Damn Timmi, Lol.

    @RYAN JAMES
    There’s a nice, comfy boulder waiting for you in Little Rock, Arkansas. Find it. Beyonce and myself will be there to pulverize it in a bit.

    Take care!

  45. UALLSUCK April 22, 2011

    Didnt love the performance, but didnt hate it either. But i felt like i was watching a weak version of Lady Gaga. Not to mention b**** cant dance to save her life, she was almost bad as when Mariah Carey tries to ‘dance’.

  46. Rob April 22, 2011

    I’m tired of everybody dressing in costumes.

  47. KoreanDream April 22, 2011

    @Timmi/@Kavion
    It’s not prejudice; I’ll admit that I should’ve been clearer in my first comment by adding “American/Korean artists RELEASING MUSIC RIGHT NOW”, because, regardless of any follow-up comments, neither of you seems to understand what I meant. Korean artists releasing music right now are Big Bang and f(x), while the likes of Ke$ha, Rihanna, and Katy Perry (to name a few) are releasing music right now in the States. You’re focusing too much on the word Korean and the word American. I’m simply stating that those groups aforementioned have more talent than Ke$ha, Rihanna, and Katy Perry.

    @Kavion
    Beyonce sings about as well as some of them.

  48. KoreanDream April 22, 2011

    @RyanJames
    How is it falling like a rock? It was just released this morning and is already #11 on US iTunes. It’s bound to reach the top 10, if not the top 5 or above easily, since a banner of it was just posted.

  49. KaVion April 22, 2011

    @KOREAN DREAM
    Yeah, I understand. Good luck convincing Timmi!

    Who said I was talking about Beyonce? I meant Breezy!

    LOL, Lord knows I’m kidding. The effects of that Jose are still going strong.

    Whooh.

  50. KoreanDream April 22, 2011

    @Kavion
    LOL, some of them sing far better than Chris! I thought you meant Beyonce; they rival Beyonce.

  51. ryan james April 22, 2011

    @Koreandream,
    RTW peaked at #9 earlier on itunes. Now it s on its way down.
    Plus Judas hit #1 in 5 hours
    BTW hit #1 in 2 hours
    HIAM hit #1 in 6 hours.
    Bey song has been out for14 hours now and all it did was peajed at #9 selling 28% of what the #1 was selling and now it s ALREADY dropping.

    FLOP FLOP FLOP

    Yall know if it was Rihanna, Trent’s silly ass would have already posted about it.

  52. TIMMI April 22, 2011

    @KOREANDREAM/@KAVION

    LMAO I get what you mean okay. It is your opinion that Korean artists are more talented than the current American artists (that you are aware of) that are releasing music now.

    Anyway, would you care to share a YouTube link to a live performance by one of the current Korean artists you refer to so I can see what I’m missing? 😉

  53. KaVion April 22, 2011

    @KOREAN DREAM
    Lol, I was talking about Bey! LMAO! They rival Beyonce? Well then…What about MJ?

    Chris still shits on all the male artists of today.

    @RYAN JAMES
    Did you really use your actuall full name?

    You should’ve just posted your phone number!

    ————————————————————-
    Agreed.

    She actually sounded good. Trent was right. Beyonce coming back has whipped everybody back into shape lol. At first I took it as a joke but really everybody has stopped acting lazy and giving weak ass vocals and performances. They know the deal. They had a nice easy vacation but they got to try and get back to actual work now.

    But the dancing was a hot ass mess. She should have left that out and it would have been perfect.

    YAS for Kanye!

  55. ryan james April 22, 2011

    lol
    Nah, it aint my name
    I ain t KRAZY

    lol

  56. JERE April 22, 2011

    ……….AGAIN you f****** BeYAWNce stans. That Houston trash has nothing to do with this post.

    ANYWAY the performance was a mess. She looked awkward the entire time and was just walking around in the stupid costume. She should have come up with something better. She looked like godamn Rita Repulsa

  57. KoreanDream April 22, 2011

    @RyanJames
    Its banner was JUST posted! Not everyone knew it was out. Plus, Beyonce isn’t the kind to sell a lot digitally; airplay is her strong point. Once radio picks it up, it’ll smash. Do you even know what a flop IS? Just because it doesn’t reach #1 on iTunes doesn’t mean it’ll flop, for goodness sakes.

    @Kavion
    Chris does, I agree. Well, they don’t rival MJ, or Beyonce really, but they’re near Beyonce’s level in overall stage presence, choreography, and vocals (some of them).

    @Kavion/@Timmi
    Timmi, I meant the popular American artists. Clips:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WpnErAmzZ3Q
    Plus, you might want to listen to the studio versions of the songs I’ll post and compare. They sound exactly like the studio version live.

    And to end…

  61. ~aMaZiNG.Lee~ April 22, 2011

    Meh…..Katy does have a semi-decent voice, I guess. I hate every one of her performances because she gives NOTHING even if her vocals are somewhat subpar. I don’t like the song, so I wouldn’t expect to like the performance considering it is Katy Perry. But I will give her some credit in that she did improve on her vocals but that’s it. But who really watches Americon Idol, though. I haven’t been interested since Fantasia won. LOL!

  62. ~aMaZiNG.Lee~ April 22, 2011

    *American

  63. KoreanDream April 22, 2011

    @Amazing~Lee
    Who watches American Idol? 26 million Americans every episode, actually. And what mainstream pop songs DO you like?

    But I do agree with your typo. AmeriCON Idol is what it’s become.

  64. Ariana April 22, 2011

    I just read on E! that this performance wasn’t live, it was actually taped a week ago.

    Apparently Perry had to sing the song 3 times, I guess that’s the reason why her voice sounded so much better compared to previous performances — it was dubbed.

  65. Rich April 22, 2011

    mediocre at best

  66. ~aMaZiNG.Lee~ April 22, 2011

    @KoreanDream

    I didn’t mean who watches AI in that the show doesn’t generate viewers but WHO REALLY watches it? Because none of my friends, associates, fellow music fans watch it anymore. I don’t know, maybe we’ve all outgrown it.

    Acutally Rihanna makes my most favorite pop songs from the past few years. I may not like her as an artist, but I have ALWAYS made it very clear that I love her music. I prefer POP from the 80’s and 90’s but as far as recently Rihanna is definitely the favorite. GGGB was an amazing Pop album. I’m not sure if you were posting here at TGJ at the time Rude Boy came out but Rude Boy was my S***! And she didn’t disappoint with LOUD which contains one of my favorite songs of 2010 WMN.

    Now I did like EARLY Gaga (Just Dance, Poker Face, Bad Romance, Paparazzi) but we ALL know how that story goes. And I was rooting for Britney, too, especially after the Blackout era (one of my favorite albums), but she disappointed me with the Circus era and this era. I’m a HUGE Backstreet Boys fan! To me, they s*** on every boy band EVER! I LOVE those dudes! I’m not into Katy or Ke$ha nor Gaga (anymore).

    Now I like you.

  68. True Blue April 22, 2011

    @ Jer:

    Beyoncé sure has you feeling pressed, doesn’t she?

    @ Amazing Lee:

    Have you seen Katy perform acoustically? Ironically, those are the rare instances where she sounds good. Can’t explain why, though.

    @ Ariana:

    If what you say is true, then…

    If that’s true, then I’m glad I didn’t purchase tickets to the California Dreams Tour like I was planning on doing.

  70. KoreanDream April 22, 2011

    @TrueBlue
    Katy isn’t fit to be the pop star she’s marketed as, in my opinion.

  71. new-york April 22, 2011

    She pre-recorded live vocals and lipped on stage.

    The whole was recorded last week hence Seacrest not being on stage when they finished showing it.

    There was no one in the room. :help:

    Sam you gotta be fair on that one, Rihanna did really well LIVE and this was not.
    Credit needs to be transfered.

  72. KaVion April 22, 2011

    @KOREAN DREAM
    Lol, I love Chris. I’m still praying for his yellow ass.

    @NOODLES
    Right? Bey got them panicking! They know they need to come correct! I agree, Katy did really good. She looked a little stiff though..

  73. MadamBitch April 22, 2011

    I really enjoyed the performance, but the vocals were not good at all!
    PLEASE MARIAH AND XTINA, RETURN to were you two belong, THE QUEENS of MUSIC THRONE!
    But we have Beyoncé and Adele on te game now, they can make my heal ears lol

  74. True Blue April 22, 2011

    @ Renaissance Woman:

    So she should be marketed as what… a folk singer?

  75. KoreanDream April 22, 2011

    @TrueBlue
    LOL, no! I’m just saying that, if she weren’t so focused on commercial success and moreso on what actually fits her, that going the route of an indie artist would be better for her.

  76. ~aMaZiNG.Lee~ April 22, 2011

    @KoreanDream

    LOL! I’ve always had this POV of pop music but I’m just BRUTALLY honest when it comes to talent/musicality.

    @True Blue

    I’ve never seen any of her acoustic performances. I guess I’ve never been that interested in her like that. I can tell she has a strong voice judging from the studio though.

  77. True Blue April 22, 2011

    @ Renaissance Woman:

    I agree. She had a pretty good balance of pop appeal with some indie sensibilities on One Of The Boys, but she went way too commercial with Teenage Dream

    @ Amazing Lee:

  78. KaVion April 22, 2011

    @TRUE BLUE
    That song about her dreams/hallucinations sounds amazing. You know her & Drake have been working in the studio to?

    I actually do think Katy could be a great Folk singer, btw.

  79. XADAX April 22, 2011

    Very Britney Spears – not Gaga.

  80. True Blue April 22, 2011

    @ Kavion:

    Yeah, I know. Can’t wait to see how that will turn out.

    And Katy would be much better suited to folk music. Acoustic music in general is better for her voice.

  81. Leigh Ann April 22, 2011

    who was stunned? i wasn’t stunned…

  82. blairdevereaux April 22, 2011

    yes gaga that was ur best performance of this era…..

    so excited!

    follow me
    @blairdevereaux

  83. ~aMaZiNG.Lee~ April 22, 2011

    @TB

    That was pretty damn good! And maybe indie would be best for her considering they do more intimate live performances then the average pop artist.

    And thanks a bunch for the good news! Super! Chick should really slay this time around I kinda feel it!

  84. ~aMaZiNG.Lee~ April 22, 2011

    Referring to F&TM, BTW.

  85. KaVion April 22, 2011

    @TRUE BLUE
    When’s the project dropping? Did you know people weren’t feeling her at the Grammys?? Smdh.

    I miss One of the Boys now..

  86. Leigh Ann April 22, 2011

    I think it’s funny that people who can’t sing…are singers? I understand live vocals/recorded/dubbed whatever blah but at what point (and don’t you say Bob Dylan you haters- he’s just different) was there a difference between someone who could “sing” and someone who could “sing live” shouldn’t they be synonymous? Jessie J can bring down a f****** HOUSE. But no one in the US knows who she is, WHY??

  87. PERRYLICIOUS April 22, 2011

    This is the definition of HOTNESS!

    Gaga & Beyonce fans can go to HELL!
    Who even cares?
    The domination on charts will be among Katy-Britney-RiRi

    THE TRINITY OF 2011!

    KATY-BRITNEY-RIRI

    Who Drag of The World?? ———->>>> Beyonce babehhh…

    Judas #4 ??? LOL
    Girls #9 ???? LOL

    These b****** need to retire.

  88. True Blue April 22, 2011

    @ Amazing Lee:

    No problem! I think she will amaze us on her next album too.

    @ Kavion:

    I don’t know, but I assume the album will be out sometime this year, especially since she’ll be making the rounds at the music festivals this summer. She obviously can’t be continually riding the coattails of a two-year-old album.

    And did you mean Katy or Florence at the Grammys?

  89. Kelly April 22, 2011

    This performance was stale as hell….I rock with Ye though..

    I rahter a slow build for Beyocne like always, than have it debut at number one and then fall off like the rest……..

  90. KaVion April 22, 2011

    @TRUE BLUE
    Florence, they thought Fantasia should’ve been in her place etc etc

  91. UGh April 22, 2011

    another chick i would NEVER pay to see live. she’s always a hit and miss. she sounded as if she was choking.

    She Did Great Love The Vocals

  96. D.Strock April 22, 2011

    Her vocals weren’t bad, but the whole alien theme and lack of much presence from her kinda threw me off.

    you people are so ignorant, everyone is not going to be some great dancer, what matters is the vocal performance, there are some artist that are full out performers and then there are some that are straight up singers, they don’t need a lot of hoopla to blow their songs out. Katy did not need to be dancing all hard on stage and getting winded, she did just fine and it made her vocals way better, stop associating entertainers and performers with singing, there are differences.

    Upon Re-Watching this performance it was rather good. Go Head Katy!

    This was a really good performance, but I can’t take how biased this site is! If Britney or Rihanna did this yoiu would say it was lifeless and falt and that Britney was dead in the eyes and Rihanna sounds like a goat. I think i’m gonna stop coming to TGJ until you sort out your obvious issues. Good day sir’s.

    RIHANNA S&M IS # 1 NOT THE REMIX WITH BRITNEY SPEARS.

    Why does the owner of the blog love her so much! This was a crap performance; she can’t sing , the choreography was not good, and the whole thing was boring. Kanye was the best thing about this! Love Kanye!

  104. royalkev April 22, 2011

    This is the very best Katy performance I’ve ever seen! She’s not very good live, because she’s usually pitchy and singing off key. She also looks awkward dancing live and she’s just stiff and robotic! Here she was none of those things (too much). She sounded great (and that was because there was minimal movement to help keep her steady). she looked amazing and it all came across s***, even! I didn’t see a lot of chemistry with Kanye, but I’m glad they didn’t try to fake it too much! It was really solid.

    I just dont understand.. Why did she go on Idol and lip synch this song.. THE WHOLE SONG.. and wasnt good at it at all… Performace wasnt all that….

  106. Perrylicious April 22, 2011

    EPICNESS!

  107. Gareth April 22, 2011

    Honesty, she was stiffer than Britney through this whole performance and it is held up on this site as an almighty performance and yet Britney is slated, even she can still do better than this. Quite disappointing!!

  108. lola April 22, 2011

    LMMAO at people saying she sounded good. Are you guys serious???? Katy sounded a mess. She sounded better than usual, but she was shouting the damn song and was sooo flat! SHE’S AN AWFUL SINGER! She sings ok at best. Plus, the way her mouth was moving made it clear that she wasn’t f****** singing live! You could hear breaths because she put those in there when she said on the backing track you dumbasses! This performance was boring and stupid. She looked like a damn fool. I am so shocked that people actually liked this mess! BTW, as far as Rihanna’s AI performance goes, I bet that b**** had her damn mic fixed! If T-Pain and Chris Brown can have the autotune effect with their mics, why can’t Rihanna have the pitch control?

  109. S*** April 22, 2011

    Better Singer & Performer than Gaga… 🙂

    Just Saying 😐

  110. Perrylicious April 22, 2011

    WTF?
    Who’s that b**** copying my name with that moron Beyonce face?

  111. Singergurl April 22, 2011

    Yes, Katy was pretty good so disappointed however she lowered herself to performing with Kanye. Surprised actually that Idol would even let them on their stage…guy is an idiot.
    Song is now ruined for me. Sorry Katy featuring Kanye is a bad choice.

  112. tia April 22, 2011

    Imma need her to keep her damn hands off my hubby Kanye…..other then that I liked it lmao

  113. Misty April 22, 2011

    She sounded AMAZING but the performance was a bit dry. She kinda stood there and her and Kanye dont have chemistry. Also, peep how Ryan Seacrest didnt wanna come out to talk to them because of Kanye. He’s a big hypocrite, I couldnt have Chris on this bootleg show! It’s about to be canceled anyway lmaooooo

  114. Real April 22, 2011

    Wicked!!

  115. Yellow Gorillah April 22, 2011

    Katy sounded great why is everyone hating

    You can tell she wanted to focus on her vocals because she did not really move much that was the only low point I have but apart from that I think it was a really good performance I LOVE THIS SONG SO MUCH. Let me tell you this song is going to do some serious BLOCKING in the charts *Side Eye* Loool

  116. malcolm April 23, 2011

    she sings the kiss me part different and i like it that way btw @JUDGE&JURY IT WAS NT LIPPED BUT hey itsyour opinion but u cant tell me that i wasnt f****** amzing

  117. Infamous Doll April 23, 2011

    Love the song and glad she recorded the voice before she hit the stage (and yes this is CLEARLY LIP SYNCED but not to the original voice on the song, she just recorded it again to sound less studio like in order to get the REAL feel) because I did not want her to F this song up like the others she have chopped and screwed up. Im not a fan of her Live Performances at all cause her voice is less than desireable live.

  118. HUDSON MORRIGAN April 23, 2011

    GURL #BYE

    Gaga already did it, and did it better.
