    I love me some Adam Lambert, Melanie Fiona, and Ledisi.

    • GREG December 17, 2012

      LEDISI!!!….one of the best tributes ive seen to Whitney!!….5:19 is in true Whitney fashion….go ‘head!

  2. CCFan007 December 16, 2012

      • truth(i could drag the F*** ouuta icki but y, she did it on herself with reflop and no grammy nods. so ill just stomp her pissy fans p**** in chile) December 17, 2012

        Cryn @ yall comment and @f*** name…I LOVE THISBSITE chile!

    • Dev December 17, 2012

      Ciara killed nothing! All those girls dancing with her where dancing at the same level she was and some younger, as for the Michael Jackson beginning i’ve seen 8 year olds on youtube doing it just as good.
      The difference between a dancer, a singer and a performer is that they do both, Ciara doesn’t and unfortunately when there is no visuals she is not a good singer. Sorry.
      Before people start with “your faves” don’t assume that they’re the same as yours

      • truth(i could drag the F*** ouuta icki but y, she did it on herself with reflop and no grammy nods. so ill just stomp her pissy fans p**** in chile) December 17, 2012

        Shut it up h**

      • Carl December 17, 2012

        @Dev, keep your negativity to yourself you d***, you know that was a good performance, any reason just to discredit Ciara’s performing skills!

      • Dev December 17, 2012

        @Carl, how can you tell someone not to be negative whilst being negative? You fool.

        I don’t think it was good and thats my opinion.

    • Sterling Infinity December 17, 2012

      lmfao Ciara you will sit!

  3. Jay Jay December 16, 2012

    Ciara did her thing!!

  4. bash December 16, 2012

    did anyone else see the shade kelly gave that other girl???

    • Love Kelly December 16, 2012

      She has not a leg to stand on. From what I hear Keri only had to sing in key and watch Kelly embarrass herself and the Knowles Rowland linage by opening her gob.

      • Dev December 17, 2012

        I have to agree. I am not buying another Kelly Rowland album based on that mess right there. She tried to sing and she failed, she tried runs and she failed. she looked good and succeeded but i can download a picture that would be a damn sight cheaper. Did she not see Chant’e Moore’s tribute? Did she not get the divas memo? When your live performances are so, so over many years and you agree to do this “you betta werk!” (ru-paul voice) she should’ve put in the time and not sounded like this. You life is a shame when Keri Hilson sounds better than you live, especially when she wasn’t sounding all that good either

      • Mark December 17, 2012

        “She has not a leg to stand on.” You better tell it like it is! She didn’t do bad, but it wasn’t a standout at all.

    • TRUTH December 17, 2012




      • Side Eye December 17, 2012

        Kelly sounded bad, but Keri didn’t sound great either. She was straining per usual.

      • truth(i could drag the F*** icki but y, she did to herself with reFLOP and no grammy nods. so ill STOMP her pissy fans p**** in chile) December 17, 2012

        I just watchd the performance and Kelly AND keri were abHOT MESS! I didnt c any shade either

    • Jasmine December 18, 2012

      I think Kelly tries too hard. She seems to forget all the practice she had with DC. There is no reason for her to be singing off pitch and trying so hard after all of them years singing backup for Beyonce. When DC had to tour Kelly was not only doing backup but she also had to sing lead a little bit here and there on songs and dance at the same time for years. No reason why she could not be as cool and collective as Keri on stage. Keri knows her limited vocal range and is comfortable singing in her own key on stage and I have yet to see her try too hard like Kelly did. If Kelly was trying to compete with Adam Lambert then she should have realized that even though he is a drag queen he is still a man so naturally his voice is going to be louder and stronger than hers.

  5. Love Kelly December 16, 2012

    So. I’m over in the UK. I can not watch the show but I knew what the outcome would be. EVERYBODY (including Demi) sounding >>>>>>>>>>>> Kelly Rowland…and true to form.

    Why show up? Why do that to yourself? Why not dedicate time and effort to perfecting your voice so you can do yourself proud in front of millions. She IS Donna Summer, yet she allowed a white dude and KERI F***** HILSON to make her look like….she needs to fire all them people around her and the fools in sound check who approved that mess.

    I can’t. Good night. I’m knocked out sleep after that.

    • Matthew Charlery-Smith December 17, 2012

      Gotta agree, I was really disappointed with Kelly’s performance. That whole Donna Summer tribute looked like caberet, it didn’t do tribute to Donna’s music or voice whatsoever. She may have had a large gay following but that doesn’t mean it should have been the camp mess that it was.

      The Whitney tribute however, was a different thing. She was really paid tribute to; excellent vocalists with STAGE PRESENCE which Whitney had in abundance. I was surprised to see Ledisi, Sparks and Fiona with so much energy and on point vocals.

      The worst thing is that out of ALL those performers it’s KELLY who has the most experience. She precedes nearly everyone there by at least a decade and she’s put in the so-so section to sing bits of a tribute when she could easily have done her OWN tribute section to BOTH artists and lead everyone else! Wasn’t it Kelly who cited both Whitney and Donna as being two of her biggest influences? Sigh, you see, if Kelly had come of that basic “Motivation/Ice” nonsense she’d be taken more seriously and probably could’ve lead the whole thing. Instead she’s thrown the Donna Summer section and handles it like a B-rate artist…

    • truth(i could drag the F*** icki but y, she did to herself with reFLOP and no grammy nods. so ill STOMP her pissy fans p**** in chile) December 17, 2012

      Chiiiiile u ainf missn S***!

  6. King B>Rihanna December 16, 2012

    Kelly Clarkson sounded really good.thank God she did not go forward with her rock career because she would have ended up like Christina Aguilera.
    Adam made Kelly Row ad Keri look like dirt on that Donna Summer tribute that belted note made the two females look like s*** but i expected that.
    Ciara started so good but ended weak and that is a pattern now i have seen…great start but can’t be sustained

    • Monstarebel December 16, 2012

      ok she would be voice less…lord knows Christinas voice is forever damaged with all that yelling screaming& straining shes done over the years

      • F*** you C**** December 16, 2012

        You need to shut the f*** you when you stan for a goat voice b**** kii

    • DIOB December 16, 2012

      Christina had what to do with this????? Absolutely nothing so you are obviously pressed. You brought christinas name up for no reason at all other than to try your failed shaded attempt and to get some likes.

  9. Monstarebel December 16, 2012

    Adam is so s*** & vocals were on point I just love him

    Ciara did good she looked cute but that song just isn’t it….IDK why she thought this song was hot Smh I guess…

  10. Love CiCi December 16, 2012

    CiCi better WERK B*t<h!!!!!!

  11. Wow December 16, 2012

    Real though. Kelly could have just looked pretty, we really did not need those vocals.

      • Matthew Charlery-Smith December 17, 2012

        Let’s be real, Kelly’s performance was DIS-A-PPOIN-TING. If the songs weren’t lacklustre enough we had to out up with THOSE pitchy vocals!

        *Remembers glory her of Mariah Carey tribute*

      • truth(i could drag the F*** ouuta icki but y, she did it on herself with reflop and no grammy nods. so ill just stomp her pissy fans p**** in chile) December 17, 2012

  13. YEAKELLY December 16, 2012

    OHHH the shade!! lmfao kelly rowland was throwin shade at keri through that whole performance and didnt give a gosh-darn if anybody saw it! lol did you guys see that look she gave her!!! hahahah too funny

    • Wow December 16, 2012

      Maybe that’s why she sounded a damn fool. Too busy trying to honour her Queen (Beyonce) she forgot about the DIVA of DISCO she was there to honour.

      Silly wabbit.

      • Matthew Charlery-Smith December 17, 2012

        “Silly wabbit” Haha! I didn’t see any shade though…

      • GREG December 17, 2012

        Im reading the posts and im wondering how in the hell you found an opportunity to slip beyonce into the conversation???…. can anyone explain how she relates to what was being said???….really???

    • Monstarebel December 16, 2012

      They shade is Keri looked better & sounded better the kelly…Ooooop

        Ummm… NO She Didn’t. Stop Lying To Yourself. I Like Both Kelly And Keri But Kelly Looked Better. Hair Makeup And All. Have A Seat!

    • O_O December 16, 2012

      God don’t like ugly and if that is what she was doing in the middle of a tribute to a legend then she should be ashamed. She could have been professional and nailed this performance without having to kiss Keris a***.

      She’s the only one stopping her success too focused on upholding stale friendships instead of being true to herself and the God given talent she is letting rust away.

      • Monstarebel December 16, 2012

        lol okaaaaaay

  14. Gemini December 16, 2012

    kelly slayed

    • Wow December 16, 2012

      …..her OWN career.

      She was getting a nice little buzz from these features but she just reminded THE WORLD that she can not sing.

      • Lola December 17, 2012


      • Matthew Charlery-Smith December 17, 2012

        Kelly’s a lazy driver, not one who never passed. She can sing, she just often doesn’t handle that vehicle (her voice) very well!

  15. Kelz December 16, 2012

    Proud of you Kelly, looking real divalicious

  16. Christopher December 16, 2012

  17. EDWARDPONTON December 16, 2012

    Man I love Kelly Rowland but she has no control over her voice. She’s just as bad as Rihanna if not worse. She’s clearly a performer but not a vocalist just yet. Maybe I’m expecting too much from her but she fails to show that Vocal potential we all know she has. Good performance though

    • Monstarebel December 16, 2012

      she’s worst than Rihanna, Kelly’s vocals are shaky as s***

      • F*** you C**** December 16, 2012

        that’s a lie and you know it b**** keep it f***** cute

      • O_O December 16, 2012

        She must have picked up a case of bad nerves over time because I swear. That DC audition video from back in the day?!…..that Kelly Rowland was a future legend. Papa Knowles must have beat that voice into background vocal submission talking bout: “there can only be one star in this family”.

      • Dev December 17, 2012

        LMAO @ monstarebel, good comebacks

  19. Monstarebel December 16, 2012

    I think it was cute seeing Kelly & Keri on the same stage with each other… but Kelly Cleary got overshadowed by Keri….Kelly isn’t not meant to be a star if someone like Keri hilson outshines you theres no hope for you..gworl

    Adam is was the true DIVA in this performance he slayed but them h*** VOCALLY…


    • EDWARDPONTON December 16, 2012

      Kelly definitely out performed Keri Hilson she just didn’t have good vocals here. But her overall delivery was much better than Ker’s bra

      • Monstarebel December 16, 2012

        all eyes on Keri & Adam….Kelly was trying to hang but couldn’t aww #PoorDat

    • O_O December 16, 2012

      I still can not bring myself to watch it. That’s how much I do not want to tarnish the memory of the voice that once was.

      She needs to take along break and figure out what the f*** she’s good at and try to master it because even Rihanna found a way out of mediocrity.

    • Lola December 17, 2012

      Keri Outshined Kelly? HAHAHA.. Keri Hilson’s Performance Was Forgettable..

      • Dev December 17, 2012

        And Kelly’s was memorable for all the wrong reasons. This is a long line of bad performances, if i just wanted pretty theres a better selection but i wanted vocals.
        I starting to think that its a good thing she didn’t get the xfactor uk gig so she could save herself from further shame.

      • Lola December 17, 2012

        @Dev… Kelly Did Better.. Maybe Not Vocally But, She Had More Fun And Stage Presence. I’m Sure Whoever Watched Remembers Kelly’s Performance More Than Keri’s. Keri Seemed Like She Didn’t Want To Be There. Her Energy Was Soo Low And She Looked Outta Place.

  20. SHA (I have DESTROYED Rita WhOra now PAIGE THOMAS) December 16, 2012

    I would never pay money to see Ciara perform after 3 songs she is tired and out of breath #MYFAVEWOULDNEVER!!!!!

      I thought you were gonna steal Nicki's shine a lil but you decided to leave your bars and your stage presence in Australia. smfh.

      • Iconic Iggy December 17, 2012

        Typical Nicki stan. Hates on everyone who isn’t Nicki. There can be more than one successful female rapper. Iggy booked the show with no album out. How many female rappers have booked a major show without an album out?

      • DeezNutz December 17, 2012

        “50K for a verse, No album out!”

        How many female rappers can get on a song with Kanye and JayZ and kill them with no album out? How many female rappers performed on the Grammys solo?

        Musically, I like Iggy. I just feel like this was her chance to shine and Bootsy Collin’s outfit outshined her! lmfao

    • Iconic Iggy December 17, 2012

    I hear she kilt it . That’s my freakinggg gurl.

    • Dev December 17, 2012

      Well, you would hear that because you clearly hear something else when Ciara “sings”

  29. thetruth December 16, 2012

    As a Kelly Rowland fan I am just so sick of her dissapointing her fans!!! She really needs to listen to her fans & go get intense vocal training/control. Sometimes I feel like as a fan she doesn’t care and sometimes does this on purposel!!! It’s not that she can’t sing it’s that she should be able to sing without struggling to belt simple notes. Keri Hilson is not a powerhouse vocalist but she sings effortless throughout her entire performance without flaws! She been in the game for over 15 yrs and u telliin me u can’t even do that! Ugh! She got upstaged by Keri & Adam Lambert!

    • Love Kelly December 16, 2012

      I can not bring myself to watch.

      I can not bring myself to invest any more time or energy on her until she takes her voice seriously. She’s starting to look more masculine than ever, she keep messing around with that trainer and them weights she’ll loose the last thing keeping anyone interested in her.

      • Love Kelly December 16, 2012

        So I watched it (muted) but did not see this Kelly —> Keri shade. It doesn’t sound like a Kelly thing to do either.

      • DAAAAAAMN December 17, 2012

        idk it looked like eklly gave her a stank face but who knows

    • Side Eye December 17, 2012

      LMAO! Keri has never sung effortlessly. Adam was the only was that sounded good during that performance.

  30. Does she really want this? December 16, 2012


    You could have hosted and saved yourself the set back. Just look outstanding and be cute as f*** until you get your voice and performance skills together.

    • thetruth December 16, 2012

      I feel you!!! It always seems like she chooses hard songs to sing as well… songs she know whe will struggle with! She wasn’t horrible but she didn’t do as well as she could have! Kelly is you read this please go get vocal training and exercise your vocal skills everday!!! Please do this for your fans!!!

    • DAAAAAAMN December 17, 2012

      she did good but she can deff improve

  31. Monstarebel December 16, 2012

    YALL talking bout Kelly threw shade at Keri when the real shade is Keri sounded & looked better than Kelly… Keri was on key Kelly on the other hand wasn’t Kiiiii

        so Dana had s***** shaky vocals like that damn……

      • yooooooooo December 17, 2012

        Keri was definitely FAR better vocally than kelly.

  33. RoyalKev December 16, 2012

    I thought Ciara was pretty damn good!

    Now for a show catering to dance music it’s appauling that there wasn’t someone added to honor Janet (she’s the Queen of Dance, along with Donna).

    Overall the show was just not worth giving it any of your time!

    If I knew it was going to be this dull ahead of time, I would have only tuned in for the beginning (Cici) and the end (Jordin, etc for the Whitney tribute).

    Vh1 have to do better!


  34. yooooooooo December 16, 2012

    If KELLY ROWLAND actually shaded KERI HILSON on stage- the funny thing is that KERI sounded better vocally and looked better lol

    • DAAAAAAMN December 17, 2012

      kelly vocally was on point lets be real..keri was kind of wack..she sounded good tho but dont try and down play kelly

      • yooooooooo December 17, 2012

        kelly was ok about half the time but i think her voice is actually really capable of pulling offf a good performance just not in that performance

    • Lola December 17, 2012

      Keri DID NOT Look Or Sound Better Than Kelly Chill.

      • yooooooooo December 17, 2012

        Look is a matter of opinion and i guess sound is as well but to me it was obvious that keri’s vocal were far better. C’mon were we watching the same video lol

  35. Ty December 16, 2012

    I would say that the only thing I was really disappointed about was the fact that Brandy has yet again not performed in a Whitney Houston Tribute. Can’t deny Melanie, Jordan, and Ledisi though. They were damn great.

    • DAAAAAAMN December 17, 2012

      kelly rowland did a great job so did adam!!

      • Dev December 17, 2012

        Kelly did good hair and walking the stage, but there is where i have to stop

    • Matthew Charlery-Smith December 17, 2012

      Didn’t Brandy do the BET tribute with Monica and Chaka Khan?

  36. yooooooooo December 16, 2012

    and it the looks that kelly was giving honestly made it look like kelly thinks she’s better than keri vocally hahahahahahaa i usually love kelly but she was an off-key mess,, she should of shut up and let keri and adam lambert sing

    • Love Kelly December 16, 2012

      What looks. I thought she was just trying to give DIVA. Did I miss something?

      • yooooooooo December 17, 2012

        maybe haha but she wasn’t giving them looks to adam :p

      • kelly December 17, 2012

        Kelly gave me diva lol yaaas

      • yooooooooo December 17, 2012

        and when the 3 of them sang together at the end, i felt that kelly sounded way more forced than keri whilst keri’s vocal performance was effortless. Keri knows what her voice is good at it

  37. M December 16, 2012

    Guys, first off the arrangement was not the best! And for those with negative comments, have you ever heard Donna Summer sing? I mean some of you are acting like she used to blow like Patti. This is not Kelly or Keri’s songs, they are singing Donna Summer’s songs, so compare them to Donna, not the artist you want them to out-sing!
    Kelly did more than Donna usually did in her songs. Not recognizing different times, different styles, and having unrealistic fan expectations can make you unfairly judge this performance! There is only so many ways to sing “Last Dance”, especially in a tribute where you don’t want to stray to far from how the original artist sang it! Granted Adam did good, but he was given the parts where Donna belted the most! Listen, compare, and then speak! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x0jUFq3k7DA

    • kelly December 17, 2012

      Wow okay this makes more simce

    • Lola December 17, 2012

      Thank You!! People On This Site Are Stupid. They Just Like Hatin. Ignorant Asses!

    • Jace December 17, 2012

      Boo first of all Donna was a diva that did have the vocal chops to sing with rest of them. maybe you question Beyonce and Monica sampled those songs

    • Dev December 17, 2012

      Regardless Kelly sounded a mess. Chante Moore did a Donna and sounded sublime.
      Again. All Kelly had to do was sing in tune. What little effort Donna put in a song it was in tune effort

    • Dev December 17, 2012

      Oh, and your video is of Donna over 20 years after the song came out.
      She still sounded better than Kelly

  38. kelly flopland December 16, 2012

    lord know i hate kelly flopland but the only b**** that was off key keri..kelly did well and keri kept f****** up….

    • Monstarebel December 17, 2012

      your clearly a Kelly fan but acting like a hater so it seems like the haters are giving her props like she slayed or something. #pathetic

      everyone knows Keri sounded better than beyonces background singer

      • kelly flopland December 17, 2012

        B**** plz kelly wouldve gotten slayed compared to the whitney tribut girls…i still think kelly is wack but id choose her over keri anyday.

      • kelly December 17, 2012

        I think he was shading kelly bro….obviously hes being sarcastic

      • Monstarebel December 17, 2012

        girl please I clocked your tea…goodnight

  39. she slays December 16, 2012

    kelly rowland looked amazing and slayed so did keri i love the whitney tribute as well

  40. EdwardPonton December 16, 2012

    Y’all crazy AF if y’all thought Keri was better than Kelly. Tbh they all sounded bad and that tribute was horrible but the reason I pinpointed kelly is because she’s a star. There’s no excuse for her to be giving grade C performances. I expect that from Keri Hilson.

  41. keri hilson December 17, 2012

    kelly rowland slayed…so did jordan and melanie i loved it all!!

  42. williNalli December 17, 2012


  43. DAAAAAAMN December 17, 2012

    DAAAAAAAAAMN jordan did that!!!!!! and kelly ro surprised me as well she did good gave me life..however that stank look she gave keri was funny as f** lmao!!!

  44. Jessy December 17, 2012

    I think Kelly did a good job! She could be the next Donna Summer if she plays are cards right! I know everyone is getting on Kelly because u could tell she doesn’t like keri Hilson but nobody was saying anything when Keri Hilson made it public notice that she can’t stand Beyonce! Maybe she is getting a dose of her own medicine. I think Ciara did a good MJ tribute but I don’t understand why Adam Lambert hosted or even performed at this even when it was supposed to be for Divas…

  45. Jay4Kelly December 17, 2012

    Yall are talking sh*t about Kelly Rowland`s vocals.Kelly`s vocals, stage presence and performance were great.Adam slayed both of them vocally but thats all he did ,Kelly owned that stage and you know it.People just need to accept kellys great unique vocals like they accepted Tina Turners,Macy Grays ,Toni Braxtons, and lately Rihannas.Kelly`s vocals are not bad at all, They are just really unique.Please stop with the unneccessary hate, kelly slayed this performance.If she doesnt crossover after this she never will.You will never hear and appreciate just how great and unique Kellys vocals are as long as you compare her to other divas(Beyonce,Whitney houston).She looked like a Doll and her voice has never been more original and authentic than in this performance.She was Diva 100%.

    • kelly December 17, 2012

      She slayed that s*** for real

    • Kelz December 17, 2012

      totally agree. she owned the stage with her fierceness

    • Steph December 17, 2012


  46. Lola December 17, 2012

    Kelly Has Such A Strong Voice. She Really Needs To Work On Her Singing. She Did Good At The Ending. You Can See Adam Looking At Her Like “Yess B**** You Better Go Off”.. lol Anyways, It Was A Good Performance. Could Have Been Better.

    Oh BTW, I Love Keri But She Looked Outta Place And Uncomfortable. 🙁

    • kelly December 17, 2012

      I second that keri just didnt seem to fit

  47. Fierce P**** December 17, 2012

    Really Kelly?? I thought you were gonna slay. This was ur moment. Everyone was blowing up my fb feed talmbout some Diva b*******. I now group u with the “choir girls”. Rihanna is in that group. Girls that can sing in unison and harmony but clearly not strong enough to be a lead.
    DIVAS 2012. Boring as f***. Not even gonna mention the others. Not worth my time. Ciara did okay but coulda been better. I will wait until Bey’s Super Bowl and the other albums released next year for real entertainment. And DEAD at f*** you c**** reading those stank p**** r**** stans.

    • THE WHOLE WORLD LOVES RIHANNA!!! December 17, 2012

  48. kelly December 17, 2012

    Kelly really knows how to work a stage

  49. Kelz December 17, 2012

    love the way kelly worked that stage.

  50. quetta December 17, 2012

    I didn’t watch the show and was highly upset when I missed the MJ tribute. She did amazing but it seems like I didn’t miss much since everyone on twitter was wishing for beyonce, Jennifer hudson, whitney, etc. However, I did catch some of the whitney tribute ans was HIGHLY disappointed. Guess they couldn’t afford, beyonce, jh, or brandy.

  51. Kelz December 17, 2012

    Kerri was not really needed for this tribute. it appears as though she wasn’t even there. Kelly looked fabulous and deliver 100%

    • kelly December 17, 2012


    • Wow December 17, 2012

      Keri looked like a last minute favour to VH1 who were struggling to pull any real stars. Her out fit look odd and she looked like she did not want to be there.

      Kelly looked hot and less bulky than she’s been looking lately.

  52. Steph December 17, 2012

    Great job Kelly!!!!

    • Wow December 17, 2012

      She needed a bit more shimmer and pop and a lot more control and finesse. This could and should have been a new disco diva beginning for Ms Rowland but the voice let it down.

      Her dance strut has gone down from her Ms Kelly performance days though, she was killing when she had those female bk dancers, she was rivalling Bey .

      She has mad stage presence though, when she’s not being OTT extra.

    • kelendria December 17, 2012

      Kudos to my fav

    Kellys vocals Slayed on Last Dance .She took it to church.

    • kelly December 17, 2012

      Yea they really did

    • kelendria December 17, 2012

      I think keri looked a mess

  54. Monstarebel December 17, 2012

    Death @ all these random so called Kelly stans coming out of no were clearly its the same person posting under different names #pathetic

    • yooooooooo December 17, 2012

      how can they honestly say that kelly’s vocals were superior to keri’s 0.o
      im gonna watch the video again lol

      • Monstarebel December 17, 2012

        lol IDK I’ve watch it twice and obviously Keri sounded better than Kelly….

    • yooooooooo December 17, 2012

      I reakon, i think kelly tried too hard and just didnt have the vocals for the songs. On the hand, im actually really proud of the vocal control that keri showed

    • kelendria December 17, 2012

      I think ur the one who does that…i mean seriously ur always callibg someone for it stfu already. And if they do do that shame on them.

  55. nickalus Randle December 17, 2012

    CIARA IS A BEAST LIVE, I LOVE HER!!! now let me watch KELLY R….

  56. theman December 17, 2012

    Kelly did a good job.

  57. honeychildplease December 17, 2012

    The real diva was ADAM LAMBERT….AND what the f*** was that Miley Cytrash performance???? oh no was she trying to be the bright Grace Jones?? FAIL

    • Monstarebel December 17, 2012

      lol yup it was the Adam Lambert show his vocals are amazing

  58. kelendria December 17, 2012

    Wow kelly yaaaas. Slay on

  59. An0thrDream December 17, 2012

    WOW!!! Such a Great show!!!

    1.) Ciara slayed that stage – nobody topped her performance! PERIOD! I was BLOWN away

    2.) Loved the Donna Summer tribute 🙂 Keri suprised me

    3.) Melanie and Jordin totally made me proud! they were refreshing

    4.) Anyone else think adam lambert performed one too many songs? he’s a great vocalist though

    5.) Demi + Miley were cool, expected a litte more vocally

    Overall this show was awesome! loved seeing FRESH YOUNG NEW talent displaying their talents!! This show made me excited for the future of music

  60. Zealous December 17, 2012

    This show was terrible like usual.
    First off donna summer slays 99% of the singers of this generation and that’s even in her later years. That was an awful tribute to her. I love Kelly I’ve been down since the self titled debut album of destiny’s child. WTF happened to her voice? She at one point sang better than Beyonce. Now I think Michelle could stand up to her. Dear Kelly work on that voice it has so much potential. Keri hilson also sounded a flat and squeaky mess. Adam was ok but how do you people dog Christina when he hit that sharp ass out of sync note(plus he almost fell). I haven’t wasted my time with a divas show since 2004. The year Patti Labelle,Beyonce,Jewel,and Cyndi did their thing…None of these girls hold a candle to the old divas shows

    • Monstarebel December 17, 2012

      I’m sorry but in what world did Kelly Rowland ever sing better than BEYONCE? your reaching!

      • Lola December 17, 2012

        You Don’t Like Kelly But You Keep Coming Back To This Post To Leave Comments About Her… Why? Honestly, GET A LIFE!! Where Was Your Fave Lastnight?…………………………………

        Yeah That’s What I Thought.
        Stop Hatin!

  61. Jay4kelly December 17, 2012

    Yes Kelly voice is a bit shaky,but she gave great performance .Stop it with the hate.I think these are Keri’s stans/fans.It is Beyonce who killed Keri’s career not Kelly.Kelly is just sealing the coffin.

  62. WTF December 17, 2012

    Yo KELLY!! If you gets that breath control in order and get the vocals on 100! She has amazing presence on stage and really could cross over with great new wave disco. She could really calve out a lane for herself. He voice was really good here just not projected enough to fill the auditorium. Keri fans are delusional Keri really did not shine here at all and I did not see this so called shade from Kelly just the Beyonce/Prince fierce Grammys ending.

  63. Sleazy December 17, 2012

    Hating aint gon help CIARA still slayed that s*** like her the rent was Due I can say this with confidence she slayed a motherfuckin stage Just look at who are the stan bases that hate da most it sad they aint got no life

  64. K^mAn December 17, 2012

    C murdered that stage as per usual

  65. mc the place to be! December 17, 2012

    Kelly is talented no doubt but when she put out things her promotion is horrible! Here I am was a good album with catchy songs and she just abandon it after a few months its almost like when she puts something out she expects ppl to rush and get it.. she needs to promote herself and stop doing random TV shows around the world and just focus on her music especially if she’s releasing some like ice what happened? I know she released a video 4 it but I barely knew about to be honest she took so long to release it I didn’t seem to care for it. But I’m really shocked and confused at her vocals she sang fantasy and greatest love of all perfectly what happened? I love Kelly always been a fan of hers but how the way she’s handling her career is not good lets hope when her new album comes out shes on her feet and pulling sales because if this CD flops too its a wrap for her and its kinda sad she still is in Beyonce shadow new label and all smh

  66. DIGGER BEY December 17, 2012

    Um……a little advice for some on here. If your fav isn’t known for her vocals and more known for being a h** of the world and pop tart artist. U have no room, hell u shouldn’t even b commenting at all on vocals. K kiddys. And lmao @ Keri every slaying Kelly, even on KELLS worst day. She was definitely out of place. Her voice is just bland and she has no stage presence! And Kelly definitely was throwing that Diva shade @ oh Wilson girl. She was like “B****” why are u here! Didn’t my sister black balled u! Anyway That M*thaF*ckin Diva KELLY ROWLAND OWNED THAT STAGE! Her voice was very deep and raspy but she only stubbed that Diva yell note, that she had done before. She was very calm and was definitly at home on the stage! She just needs a little vocal breathing training. All and all, she did good! Her intro was LIFE! She was channeling THE QUEEN! That’s a rare thing. And she did it! #NEXT GREAT DIVA…..KELLY ROWLAND

  67. DIGGER BEY December 17, 2012

    And yes Kelly didn’t bring her Diva Voice but there no way nobody get slam her. Recently she has been slaying vocally and I say that because she has been sounding great singing Whitney and Mariah songs. Majority of these women rite now could never do a Whitney song justice but she did but no one can do Whitney like Whitney! Kelly is still that b****! #THE NEXT GREAT DIVA…..KELLY ROWLAND

  68. DIGGER BEY December 17, 2012

    And VH1 was slipping! Ciara, Kelly Clarkson, Miley and others perform singels off their album and all Kelly did was tribute to Donna. I wanted Kelly to do a new single or something solo wise! Don’t know if its Kelly or VH1 but she should’ve perform something off YOTW! #THE NEXT GREAT DIVA……KELLY ROWLAND

  69. hip hop star December 17, 2012

    i thought kelly performance was unique anyways.. if she did shade keri the b**** deserved it cause shes constantly shading kelly gurl beyonce. with that bein said, i guess the rest has been good for keri because she surprised me. was on key and wasn’t losing her breath. adam slayed them both vocally but i enjoyed the performance.

  70. BeyWhoUWanna December 17, 2012

    I can’t be the only who saw the shade Kelly threw at Keri multiple times. The look she gave when they next to each other and grabbing Adam so Keri looked like the odd one out.

  71. Mark December 17, 2012

    Ciara did great, I see the haters trying to find a reason to hate. Beside Ci, the only diva here was Adam, lol. Where’s Brady? She sold just as less as the rest of these flops, besides Kelly, Kelly C not Kelly R. Kelly R, now people see why Beyonce is the star that she is, this is nothing new, Kelly always been just ok when it came LIVE. So the whole “oh Kelly isn’t big cause of Bey” or “Why Bey get all the shine”, necause when Beyonce even walks on a stage she shuts it down. Kelly isn’t even on Keri’s level.

    • Lola December 17, 2012

      Wait, You’re Gonna Talk About Kelly’s Singing. She Sings 1000x Better Than Ciara. Only Thing Ciara Slayed On That Stage Was The Dancing Cause We All Know That B**** Re-Recorded That S***. Chill The F*** Out. Thanks!!!!

      • Mark December 17, 2012

        1) She was singing LIVE. 2) It was a dance performance. 3) It was a dance tribute. 4) Everyone was on their feet while Ciara was on stage. 5) Don’t be mad cause Kelly been out for 15 years and can’t pop off cause Beyonce has a new shadow (Rita).

      • Lola December 17, 2012

        @Mark No She Wasn’t Singing Live. Who Are Trying To Fool? Let’s Be Honest…

        1) When Someone Is Singing And Dancing At The Same Time, You Can Hear The Heavy Breathing In The Mic. Ciara Sounded As Clear As Ever. COME ON NOW. She Re-Recorded Her S*** Before She Hit The Stage.

        2) Kelly Can BLOOOOOW Compared To Ciara So Let’s NOT Go There.

        3) Ciara Aint Been Poppin Since 1, 2 Step Came Out Sooo……………………………………………

        Anyways, You Triiiiiiiiied It.. lol

      • Mark December 18, 2012

        Have you seen how in shape Ciara is?! It was LIVE, get over it. And Kelly aint been popping since EVER!!! Ciara has to get BACK here she fell off, Kelly has to get there. Face it, she’s not the child of destiny’s. She’s just a back ground singer, opps!

  72. cocobutta December 17, 2012

    Cici brought geat eatto the stage and was a star. She entertained me and wasnt overly fussed with vocals as she PUT IN WORK AND EFFORT!!

    Adam Lambert saved that Donna Summer tribute.
    Think once Kelly heard Keri was added to tribute that was a wrap as far as the tribute being a success. Kelly big note on 1st song was horrid for her standards but rest was ok & Keri sounded weak throughout. Kelly timing was off also with vocals so made uncomfortable to listen to & im a fan of hers. She looked HOT.

    I-C-E frosty was that look and shade Kelly gave Keri!! LoRd HaVe MeRcY!!

    Enjoyed Kelly Clarkson!!
    Thats Whitney tribute was cool but stiff in terms of representing dance music. Needed a bit more energy.

    • cocobutta December 17, 2012

      Meant to put ENERGY

  73. antertain December 17, 2012

    She should have done more songs as she the ONLY one bussin moves.

    This show fell off a LONG time ago!

  76. HOTSTUFF December 17, 2012

    Why is Beyonce not in this flop show ?

    • RichandBlack11 December 17, 2012

      why would she ?

    LMAOOO the white people in the crowd didn’t even know how to dance to that rachet getto trashy song ‘ my back is aching, my Bra to tight, my booty shaking…’

    Oh so ADAM LAMBERT can us AUTO-TUNE and you fake, evil, b**ches who are forever trying to break down a young Black man when he uses it, can sit and eat this sh*t up? Wow really 0_o?

    So ADAM LAMBERT, who was arrested and jailed in 2012 on assault charges for attacking his BOYFRIEND Sauli, can host a show and NOBODY SAYS A WORD? Listen, it about time to invest in SPRAY ON WHITE! If there is a such thing as spray on TAN in a bottle I know there has to be some for different shades…LOL 🙂

  80. mobwife: side-eye at the bullsh*t December 17, 2012

    I loved Ciara’s performance. I so need Cici and C Breezy to do a MJ & Janet J style performance in the near future! I love to watch folks who truly enjoy performing and are actually good at it….aka Beyonce, Chris Bown, Ciara and 1 or 2 more!

    I’m sorry but can we PLEASE get a real Divas next year? This s*** is motherfucking embarrassing. I’m gonna need Mariah, Celine, Janet, Gloria Estefan, and other legends to step this s*** up, come off they high ass horse and do Divas again. PLEASE someone get it together. At this rate next year it will be Amerie, Nivea, Brooke Valentine, and Cassie…. ch….

  86. Hush December 17, 2012

    Kelly wasn’t great, but to say that Keri sounded better than her is beyond reaching and is basically a lie. Kelly’s probably was breath control, but Keri was flat, thin and squeaky throughout the whole performance.

  87. Uche December 17, 2012

    Rihanna wish she has ciara voice damn that girl can slay ….. Jordin sparks did her with that lil s*** dance common when did she turn that bad … kelly performance is average , keri hilson is a total failure …. roc nation needs to promote melania fiona that girl is a stage material ….

  88. Jay4kelly December 17, 2012

    Kelly R started epic but crashed after that horrible note she belted,then she bounced back with those s*** sultry vocals when she started singing last dance then she took it to church and proved she is a vocalist,but it was too late cause Adam had already reached the finish line and stole the show.

  89. lola December 17, 2012

    Kelly Rowland did great in the beginning. It wasn’t until the last song she was singing so deep and manly. Her ending was strong though. Adam Lambert looked a hot mess, but sung well. Keri was not needed and it was painful to watch her perform and hear her sing. SHE HAS ALWAYS HAD A WEAK VOICE and she was struggling trying to hit notes, but didn’t hit any. She’s so bony as well. It looked like she was about to break when trying to sing. Ciara did horrible! It’s funny how people are so quick to say she did well because she danced a little. Her MJ tribute was humiliating and she did the same technical moves… no real power energy and small, weak voice.
