    Ciara! <3

    • SCORPIO4LIFE November 4, 2012

      The intro or snippet that she gave for OWA was so FIYAH!!!! I was like damn she slayed the stage before even giving them Sorry!!!

      • FAF November 4, 2012

        DEATH! YES B****!!!!!

      • FAF November 4, 2012

        And why is she effortlessly executing those powerhouse notes like that??? I can’t wait for this new album….

    • I DON’T SPEAK VERMIN!! November 5, 2012

      Ciara is the best female performer ever, I love her. But did i hear missy say in 9th Inning that she will not flop and she bet she go #1 ? I bet she wishes she never said that verse cus 9th Inning & Tripple Threat were both TRASH and they both flopped. Just keeping it 100%… *giggles*

  2. ciaras prince November 4, 2012

    Ciara slayed!!!!!! One Woman Army is going to be EPIC!!!!!!

    • r u for real November 5, 2012

      OWA sounds hotttt….love the marching band beat

  3. Honey Boo Boo Child November 4, 2012

    OK CICI!

  4. Beyonce’s Weave November 4, 2012

    This show should only be about Rihanna and Nicki Minaj. These are the only two black women doing it big. This West Indian Island girls are showing Lazy Texas thieving whores how hard work pays off.

    These Island girls have a work ethic that is unmatched by any black act, have the versatility unmatched by any Black act in the industry and have the success unmatched by any black act in the industry.

    Nicki Minaj who has a seat on the biggest show on FOX Network, her own reality show, 2 platinum albums and is on an arena tour 2 years in her career shits all over any of those African American Texas whores who stockpile skin bleaching creams and order fake horse tail blonde cheap nasty weaves.

    Rihanna, with over 30 million albums sold WORLDWIDE and over 142 million digital tracks sold WORLDWIDE, 4 VOGUE covers (2 US VOGUE, 2 UK VOGUE), Her own big selling fragrance, on her third Arena tour, A top 5 single (Diamonds) which was #1 in 22 countries and in the Top 5 in 55 countries with no promo, no performances, no video shits all over Texas whores who steal legitimate songwriters work.

    This show should be honoring these Island girls who have shown Texas skin bleaching, horse tail blonde weave wearing whores how hard work ethic pays off.

    These texas whores have had their mothers dressing them at 30 years and their Daddy counting their pennies, that is just how lazy, pathetic and useless Texas whores are.

    • SayWhaaatt!!!!! November 4, 2012

      Nikki and Rihanna need to learn how to sing on key.

    • Elijah November 4, 2012

      Nicki and Rihanna are white girls who suck

      • FAF November 4, 2012

        @Elijah don’t try it, ugly…..

    • RymeReason November 4, 2012

      I think you miss the entire point of Black Girls Rock. If you were watching tonight, which you probably weren’t, you would know that the idea of this movement is for black women to promote uplift and acknowledge their positive contributions to community and to be proud of who they are as no other outlet uplifts black women like they uplift white women.

      Beverly Bond spoke on the importance of teaching young women their value and their talent, how there is more to black girls than what is below their waists, and more than the negative stereotypical images the media portrays of black women and black girls. The sad thing is in your ignorance and blind worship of Rihanna and Nicki, you want those stereotypes reinforced. Rihanna and Nicki are NOT ROLE MODELS nor do they provide anything relevant to the black community accept for their ass, tits, and dried up lose boxes. They aren’t even talented. The only reason why they are “doing it big” as you say is because they are good trained dogs for the white man who secretly pull their strings behind the curtain. They take their clothes off at the drop of a hot and have some of the most raunchiest derogatory lyrical content in their music.

      Black girls with low self esteem no solid parental role models in their lives turn to promiscuous whores like Rihanna and Nicki Minaj who teach them how to use their bodies as a source of power instead of using their minds.

      You my dear need to take a seat. You are probably a fatherless homosexual who just wants to see a half naked w**** on stage winding and grinding to some ghetto booty popping song so you can “get your life”.

    • Rihanna black madonna November 4, 2012

      All the women that performed are flops. If blacks girls wanna use them as role models. More fool you.

      • FAF November 4, 2012

        And they all have #1 albums UNLIKE rishitta… =/ Poor u

      • RymeReason November 4, 2012

        Listen you narrow minded, limited, drone…Black Girls Rock is not about album sales, nor is it a popularity contest, that’s what the Grammy’s are for. The movement celebrates black women from all spectrums, especially talented but marginalized women. It is precisely why the artists you call “flops” were selected to perform, not just ones who are currently #1. Is that too much for you to comprehend? It’s not rocket science.

        Rihanna and Nicki Minaj will be ok. It’s not that serious. How about you recognize others who are not constantly in the lime light instead of crying about who you think deserves to be there?

    • RiQky November 4, 2012

      I think you may be a bit confused. Black Girls Rock is not about album sales, billboard chart positions or fat bank accounts. Its about honoring women of integrity, pride and distinction, poise style & grace and thier contributions to society and thier respective communities
      Nicki Minaj and Rihanna (as much as i luv them both) goes against everything Black Girls Rock stands for. Thier message in thier music, their image and overall artistry.

      BGC is all about teaching girls that thier power lies above thier shoulders and not below thier waste.

      • RymeReason November 4, 2012

        Well written. You said everything perfectly.

    • SCORPIO4LIFE November 5, 2012

      Um they are not role model nor should they be on there with little girls in the crowd. What the hell they going to teach them if you get breast implants and take nude pics of yourself you two can be famous???? Oh or better yet that domestic abuse is okay, and yes you can include Nicki in that one too! Yes them being back on their island is exactly where they needed to be, but hey as soon as they do a show called BLACK GIRLS THAT SLUTTED THEIR WAY TO THE TOP……. I MOST DEF BE SURE TO TELL THEM TO PUT THEM ON THE LIST!!! OKKKKKKKKKKKKAAAAAAAAYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!

    • jamilaa November 5, 2012

      @beyonce weave buhahahhahahahaha that was funny lol..but i love bey so much but RIRI is my gurlllll….bey has talent mehn cannot even lie about that…nicki is a good rapper i won’t lie but am not a fan…..

    • MACHIAVEL November 5, 2012

      @Beyonce’s Weave, H** STFO! You Stan For A Talenless Bleaching C***! The H** Bleach Her Skin Like M***********, Did You See How The Looks In Her “Ponde Reply” Era And Now??? She’s As White As Miley Cyrus, Sit Your Delusional Hating Ass Please!

    • HYFR November 5, 2012

      I wish you had any idea how dumb your comment was. If the show was just Rihanna and Nicki Minaj, It wouldnt have been worth watching. Those two look like 2 kindergarteners in an elementary school play. I’ve seen rocks with more stage presence. No shade. The very very very last 2 people I would want on a show that would deliver uplifting messages to young girls in the world would be the aforementioned. Nicki’s music doesnt even make sense and definitely not someone any girl should look up to, and neither is R******. They both carry themselves as selfish, ugly, attention hungry, s**-symbol, trashy whores. you can tell by the things that they sayy on twitter on a daily basis that they are really disgusting people. rihanna cant do anything that any of the performers did.and neither can nicki minaj. they suck as performers, they suck as people. they are really good at modeling and reading whats written for them but are talentless and moral-less.

  5. G. November 4, 2012

    Y’all know good and damn well Ciara was lipsyncn….but that intro was kinda nice

    • BLUEBERRY THUG November 4, 2012

      Maybe your fav should lip sync more and we wouldn’t have to hear her glass shattering vocals

      • FAF November 4, 2012

        do we need to repost jimmy kimmel live performance?

      Just admit it she is a Black Girl who just ROCKED THE HELL OUT OF THAT STAGE!!!!

    • prettigurlrockD bitchess November 5, 2012

      Girl BYE.

  12. TeamEveandMissy November 4, 2012

    I got to give it to her Ciara werked that stage,but the crowd went wild when who hit the stage……no other than Missy misdameanor Elliott @faf b**** get in to it. Don’t try it her outfit wuz cute and simple not clown wear that sicki icki would’ve worn.

    • FAF November 4, 2012

      DEAD !!! She was sagging! KI !

    • prettigurlrockD bitchess November 5, 2012

      Ciara stole the show. Point blank period. Accept it.

  13. speechless November 4, 2012

    Ciara hands down was the best!!!! Keyshia was amazing!!

  14. tomuchenfo November 4, 2012

    India Arie >

    • FAF November 4, 2012

      Yes b****!!!! She brought it too!!!!!

  15. Elijah November 4, 2012

    IMO Brandy was kinda boring and she was lip syncing i still love her to pieces tho, and weather you like Ciara or not or if she was lip syncing you have to admit she slayed!!! I believe that was the best performance of the whole show who mad??

    • BLUEBERRY THUG November 4, 2012

      All of those ad libs she was doing and you got the nerve to say she lipped?

      • RymeReason November 4, 2012

        People who don’t understand music and talent will say someone is lip syncing. I bet this person will tell you that Ciara was singing live, and that Rihanna has a broad range. SMH

      • bam bam November 4, 2012

        She was not singing live and you can tell…… And Im not even hatin She was lipsincing just like Kelly was on the BET Awards and I love her and I can admit to that

    • RymeReason November 4, 2012

      I was there and she was NOT lip syncing so stop with your LIES.

    • RikQy Legend’Nation November 4, 2012

      actually Ciara was kinda boring, her intro was cute but Missy was the best part of her performance.
      And you could CLEARLY here the flaws n breaths n certain parts of brandy performance, U WISH she was lipsynchin. those perfect vocals u heard was her in full live form. sorry sweetie!

      • SCORPIO4LIFE November 5, 2012

        Clearly we weren’t watching the same show…….. her performance was BORING???? Come on now you can do better. And how was Missy the best thing of her performance???? Oh because the crowd stood up ….. come now!!!! Missy haven’t been on a stage in awhile due to health problems, so of course they are going to get up and support her! But trust Ci would have gotten a standing ovation without her big sister because she slayed that stage with vocals and choregraphy!

    • Elijah November 5, 2012

      Ok for all the hating ass b****** who tried to come for me i know music yall are the dumb ass ones i know Ciara lipped duh b**** and Brandy did too yall are really f****** delusional I love Brandy so much i seriously do and nobody is saying brandy can’t sing live she is one of the best singers i’ve ever heard but she just lips a lot so have a f****** seat clowns!

  16. Teacher November 4, 2012

    Ciara leavin the stage/Missy’s introduction>>>>>

    Missy’s performance was cute

  17. Beyonce’s Weave November 4, 2012

    OK now that I’ve watched some of the videos, there is only one act who stands out and that is miss CIARA. Ciara is a bloody fantastic performer, she just needs better songs.

  18. BLUEBERRY THUG November 4, 2012

    Alicia actually gave the best performance I’ve seen from her in a good minute..
    Brandy of course was amazing and gave vocals for days as usual. Keyshia brought it vocally as well! Ciara had great energy and it seemed like the vocals were live. Her voice sounds stronger! India sounded great.

    wow I’m really impressed tonight. There wasn’t the usual mess you usually see on shows like Billboard awards, vma’s etc.

  19. BLUEBERRY THUG November 4, 2012

    Yes gawd they gave me life now I’m bout to watch Nene and them on real housewives premiere, TUNE IN GUYS

  20. GAslickmouf November 4, 2012

    Everyone did really well

    Happy to c Brandy. She did really nice. Soft and sxy.

    Akeys very sxy as always.

    Kcole did good. She didnt over sing. She did good

    The men was really great. Almost had me wishing I was a lady lmao!!

    CIARA. She is the best on any stage that she gets on. Ppl knows she is a beast!!
    Ciara is the s***. She prolly dont have the money to make her look good like RiRi and beyonce. Ciara does best with out the special effects. Ciara is a best and always will b untill she gets old and break a leg.

    No one is comin for Ciara so stop with the hate.

  21. Teacher November 4, 2012

    In enjoyed Alicia’s performance!

  22. Teacher November 4, 2012

    I just LOVE India Arie’s voice!!

  23. ABCD November 4, 2012


    • Sarah Says November 4, 2012

      Yep, for me SWV, Brandy, India and Keyshia. I don’t think either Ciara or missy were live, sorry. Missy looked like she was holding the mic close to her mouth so you couldn’t see her mime, and it all sounded pre recorded.

  24. vidiii November 4, 2012

    Intro from Ciara was dangerous!!! killed it
    I need to hear that One Woman army song in full length.. 🙂
    Sounds like a hit to me.. (Kelly Clarckson co-writed that song)
    The full performanced killed!, loved Sorry & Missy tribute.

    Nice performance by Alicia 😀

    • FAF November 4, 2012

      Where did u read Kelly Clarkson cowrote it?

  25. ABCD November 4, 2012


  26. Girrrl November 4, 2012

    Keyshia blew me away as did the men!!!

  27. SCORPIO4LIFE November 4, 2012



    • BLACKGURLTHTRKS November 5, 2012

      Keyshia is officially back…Ciara is doing the same thing she did last album and the one before that…Just silly looking…JEEZ!

      • SCORPIO4LIFE November 5, 2012

        that’s your opinion and u have the right to have it. U can post on here how many times u didn’t like her performance or if she haven’t grown to you as an artist or it all seem like a repeat all you want too! But to me no matter what she do or don’t do it’s not going to be enough for some ppl! And Im most def not going back and forth with you or anyone else on an artist that Im not going to meet or will she come on here and read anything we have to say. She is doing what makes her happy, are you?

        And if I want to say that :




  28. CCFan007 November 4, 2012

    All the girls rocked it tonight but the only good “performance” was of course by ciara and missy… Ciara is a TRUE performer and she shuts s*** down EVERY DAMN TIME! She so deserves to be #1 the most underrated artist of our time.

  29. MUSIC ARTIST November 4, 2012


  30. TresChic November 4, 2012

    Ciara was brilliant. Loved the medley of songs, and the performance with Missy. She’s not playing this time, I really think this era is going to work for her. Go Go Go!

  31. RymeReason November 4, 2012

    Then men were amazing. I actually enjoyed their performance out of all of them. Brandy did well, her voice was more raspy than usual, but she’s been on tour so I give her a pass. Both of India.Arie’s performances were good. Ciara did well, she was performing her ass off, however she was lip-syncing for her life. SWV did really well too, their voices were on point.

  32. DIOB November 4, 2012

    KEYSHIA COLE!!!!!!!!!!!! wow this was so amazing!!!!

  33. Sonya November 4, 2012

    All girls rock! Alicia was amazing and I really love “New Day”, I think more than “Girl On Fire”. It’s all good. Can’t wait for the album. I love the awards shows but I really would like to see a mixture of races when it comes to the awards.

  34. kidNe’roStylez November 4, 2012

    The Best thing Vocally was Brandy and India…………..I love music. Keshia Cole did ok…Ciara is a dancer she lipd , now if that’s what you like than that’s ok for you Missy helped Ciara’s performance alot. You say Brandy ‘s performance was boring that’s your opinion, but Brandy ain’t bit mo lip nothing! Tape Ciara on the shoulder for that one…….

  35. kidNe’roStylez November 4, 2012

    I enjoyed Brandy… Luke James is coming so hard.. Can’t wait for his album and new video…. Luke, Eric, and Anthony need to record that “Wild Flower” song for Cancer Research and donate funds to Cancer Research….Brilliant Performance ********=====

  37. mary November 4, 2012

    I wish they would have shown more of that choreography and Brandy’s video…

    BRANDY.. Is dancing & performing so well.. Hope she does a Tour..

    GO BRANDY… 1.2 miillion albums Taylor Swift.. 70,000 Brandy.. first week….The world is still a white world when it comes to music…

    Black Folks… Let support are acts….

    • TAYLOR SWIFTS NUMBER 1 FAN!!! November 5, 2012

      Carly Rae Jepsen’s 46,000 copies sold …. Brandy 70,000 first week. The world is still a black world when it comes to music….

      No point really picking Brandy and then comparing her sales to the biggest artist in america is there…,

    Ciara giving those strong vocals, her voice has really improved

    • Sarah Says November 4, 2012

      I hate when people are talking about improvement when you been in the game nearly 8 years! This isn’t week 4 of xfactor or the Voice, she should’ve done got her s*** together in 2008. Words like maturity, tone should be used by now. KMT

  39. mary November 4, 2012

    OUR ACTS – BRANDY, KELLY… Taylor, can’t touch them… Come Go Brandy.

  40. D November 4, 2012

  41. Monstarebel (RihannaNavy & TeamMinaj) November 4, 2012

    Alicia-I liked the first song you sang but you lost me when you started screaming on duke on fyah next

  43. lyric commander lee November 4, 2012

    wow – gotta honestly say that ciara suprised the hell outta me with that intro and sorry was cute for once when she tones it down and just sings – ver voice seems to have gotten stonger – kinda gettin excited on the album for her again!

    • BLACKGURLTHTRKS November 5, 2012

      Just cannot get into the Ciara hype…this chic simply tries to freakin hard for me..Now don’t get me wrong, I have bumped many of her songs in the past , I just rather listen than look at her jumping across the stage in that same black cat suit… its really not that serious boo boo…

      • Teddy November 5, 2012

        @BLACKGURLTHTRKS Sit your $5 ass down before i make change. Ciara was f****** amazing.

  44. TeamIDGAF November 5, 2012

    Keyshia cole had the best performance vocally damn she blew the roof off the building and plus she gotta great standing ovation,awwe look at keyshia face expressing at the end of her performace,yall she really deserve it!! teamkeyshia

  45. Hilly November 5, 2012

    Ciaraaaaaaaaaaaaaaa was on fire! This intro was hot!
    I loved all the performances, all I saw was talent!
    India.Arie is an amazing singer/songwriter! SWV were great! Love Alicia Keys’s New Day, I’m not impressed by Girl On Fire but it was still good!
    I’m laughing so hard at those people who says Rihanna and Nicki Minaj should have been there. Excuse me, microwave music, electro pop, bad performances? They had nothing to do there!

  46. theman November 5, 2012

    They all did great as well as Swv.

  47. Show November 5, 2012

    I don’t know what people are seeing.
    None these performances were amazing minus a few. Keyshia Cole and Good vocals don’t match. All over the place like usual.
    Brandy b**** go have a seat and take your delusional ass stars with you. This isn’t 2002
    SWV vocally slayed
    India.Arie vocals were great
    Missy great to see her. Did ok,give us something better than 9th inning or go back into retirement.All this hype for Ciara will end up like brandy and her starz(lol). Because honestly she did nothing new.. Gaga&Beyonce(WAY BETTER PERFORMERS)
    Dudes were just ok

    Alicia…just no

    • Jessy November 5, 2012

      B**** please don’t talk about brandy!

  48. Sleazy November 5, 2012

    Ohhhh thay Navy h** is mad! Mad cus Ciara slayed rihann? Lmao that goat sounding h** can’t sing or perform!!! March to the beat of my drum I’m a One Woman Army!!!! H** slayed

    • prettigurlrockD bitchess November 5, 2012

      Ciara def more talented than Rihanna. THIS right here proved it.

  49. Love on top November 5, 2012

    Ciara clearly didn’t lip sync I see its mostly rihanna stans saying she did mmmmmm jealous much?

  50. kiki November 5, 2012


  51. the voice November 5, 2012

    Keyshia – performance and stage presence was GREAT. I need her to keep performing like that. She clearly has IT but she is inconsistent. If she becomes more consistent with her performances she can eventually go from theaters to arenas… Def gonna get her CD.

    not that there is anything wrong with being in theaters cuz alot of people would love to be in her position. Also, It is time for Keyshia to try to break into the UK/ Europe market. if Mary J can get into arenas in Europe and the UK so can Keyshia.

    Brandy – I luv her but that song needs to grow on me.

    Akeys – consistent and talented….. and that is why she is an international superstar

    Ciara – great performer but I need to hear some more singles before I commit to buying an album. I like Sorry and Overdose but that is it so far.

  52. RoyalKev November 5, 2012

    I have to say that the entire show was full of entertainment.

    Alicia’s New Day opening was Fire! She was straining (like most people say) and she did a great job.

    Brandy was awesome! She was all the way grown, graceful and s*** in a very subtle way. The vocal runs >>>>>>

    Keyshia did very well. I think she really gave her all last night.

    and that Ciara was hot on stage. She gets so much unnecessary shade , but she’s so good at what she do and has her own lane. There’s room for everybody with talent!

  53. MaZ November 5, 2012

    SWV just rocked the house!

  54. My own thing November 5, 2012

    Lip syncing? Wow people are so bitter I do not see it CIARA did that! And you will #DEAL

  55. lol November 5, 2012

    Alicia Keys!!!! That’s y you’re WORLDWIDE!!!!!

  56. Cado November 5, 2012

    Brandy slayed….like always. However, Keyshia surprised me! That’s the best I’ve ever heard her sound! Kudos to Keyshia!

  57. Bad b**** November 5, 2012

    I don’t see the big deal…it was obvious cc lipped…but we all know she can’t sing…so what…she had prerecorded vocals…even her talking in the beginning wasn’t live…its not that serious… she rarely sings live…love brandy but she was a bit boring… kysha was surprisingly good…even missy lipped her part…there was a part that the camera cut away cuz she lipped too soon on her part…cc did the same if you look closely…

    I’m sorry, but these are what you call PERFORMANCES. no big budget, no over the top production…the girls who are running the pop charts could never, honestly! How ass backwards is that??!!!!

    all their performances were boring as hell..*yawns*

    Ciara is the best dancer ever!
    I’m glad she back !

    B-Rocka but croaky then her usual smoothness but she been singing A LOT around that period. Good Job

    Alicia sounded much better than recent showings and she is an ALL or nothing singer. She wisey pulled out of doing som notes but mch improved overall.
    Love the start.

    Keyshia Cole: Sing ike that live more & also hit a couple more big notes in the hook. Lovin the song & want her album.

    CiCi is a LETHAL WEAPON on the stage. OWA intro was that show!!
    That MORE than makes up for vocal flaws & a least that side has progressed slightly. CiCi does make good R&B when she does i (Promise, So Hard etc..)

    SWV classic!!
    India jus knows her voice and excecutes.

    Keyshia’s Live vocals have improved soooo much, i always thought of her as just a studio singer because alot of the times she gets up on stage and sounds hoarse but this perfomane was great!

    Coko is a beatst!

    India Arie played a flute, that was nice.

    Brandy sang with those effortless runs

    Luke james is coming!! all these other r&b dudes better watch out

    everybody was good tonight

    Brandy did great! I just wish they would add more choreo. to wildest dreams . I thought Keyshia was okay her vocals are getting stronger. Ciara just killed the dancing and SWV was hyped up by themselves but I still liked the performance and the men…one word IDRIS and he didn’t even sing! ha ha YAAAASSSSS IDRIS!!

      I suspect they cut down the choreo because she was actually singing

    Everyone did exceptionally well! Congrats to all and it just made me proud to be black.

    I don’t care what anybody says Brandy’s performance was boring like she is a great singer but i’ve seen better performances of WD (I love brandy btw so dont come for me)

    Keyshia coles performance was boring too but she sounded really good her voice improved a lot (I like keyshia so dont try it)

    Alicia keys sounded ok it was forgettable (B**** fell off)

    Ciara was very entertaining( i didnt say the b**** voice was just outstanding so chill the f*** out) But she just had the best performance she gave a great show

    Ciara was bloody fantastic! And yeah I agree with the above comment. I like Brandy but something about her performance was lacking. But she looked GORG.

  71. All I have November 5, 2012

    ok at firt i was mad that all yaull kept saying ciara was not singing liv but i watched iton here i see why u guys said that, the soundis coming before the actual movement of her lips and body. which happens alot with recordings
    however i watched the ontv sunday and she sang life
    and she KILLED IT, to death

    im reallyhappy with her, she is comin full circle and
    she deerves all the success
