VH1 Divas: Ciara To Tribute Michael Jackson With ‘Got Me Good’ Performance

Published: Monday 10th Dec 2012 by David

The Princess is getting ready to tribute The King.

Sure to give fans of ‘Got Me Good’ star Ciara to tune into her forthcoming ‘VH1 Divas’ performance, December 16th, it has emerged that she is to pay homage to ‘Liberian Girl‘ icon Michael Jackson during her set.

Can’t wait to find out more?

Then what are you waiting for!

Though the name of MJ cut is yet to be confirmed, we do know that her tribute will serve as the introduction for what it is being billed her ‘Got Me Good‘ set, and will follow her 2009 tribute for the star at the BET Awards three years ago.

On the tribute, VH1 teased:

“Ciara is bringing Michael Jackson to VH1 Divas! No, not hologram MJ. A little birdie told us that on Sunday, December 16 at 9PM ET/8C CiCi will be using one of his classics to kick off her “Got Me Good“ set.
Though, she’s not the first to draw inspiration from the King of Pop, we’ve seen her perform tributes to his work in concerts over the years, work the red carpet like Mike and peeped his dance moves in some of her own gravity-defying choreography (does the woman have a spine?!). So, if any Diva can ”Work“ his presence on stage, it’s Ciara. We don’t yet know which minute-long snippet I’ll be screaming, “That’s my jam!” to in six days, but here are a few theories:
Song #1: “Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin’”
Why It’s Likely: She got the blogosphere buzzing last summer when flexed her fancy footwork to the tune in an Angola concert. Where is Angola? I don’t know, but I wished I was there when I saw that show footage.
Song #2: “Heal The World”
Why It’s Likely: She performed it at the 2009 BET Awards shortly after Michael Jackson’s death. It’s a slow jam, but it could be an easy-build complement (and moment of rest) before the non-stop dance fest that is “Got Me Good.”
Song #3: “Billie Jean”
Why It’s Likely: This song is all about showcasing feet popping and hip twerking. And the first 30 seconds are so recognizable, too – 1983 Motown 25 performance, anyone? Nothing but good things happen from starting a set with that.
Song #4: “Don’t Stop ‘Til You Get Enough”
Why It’s Likely: Another jam she’s pulled out of her concert repertoire before. It’s definitely a big crowd-pleaser. What better way to pump up a dance-theme Divas crowd?”

Whatever she does, we’d put good money on this being the performance that has everyone talking for the right reasons. For as the performance below proves, very few can say they can do it any better Cici..on or off the stage.

        And B**** you will weep.

    • NFG (No f**** Given) December 11, 2012

      Ciara actually sells talent though.

      • NFG (No f**** Given) December 11, 2012

    she believes she is Janet Jackson

    • cali December 10, 2012

      She is this generation’s though, name another who can be?

      • CHUDDS December 10, 2012

        Her album sales say otherwise.

      • U Funky H*** must Deal December 10, 2012

        But her dance skills is undeniable you tried 🙂 nice attempt

      • CHUDDS December 10, 2012

        Good dance skills with terrible vocals & music. I think I’ll pass.

      • U Funky H*** must Deal December 10, 2012

        bye poof…..

      • PSA (FAF) December 10, 2012


        why u so mad, though p*** poor A*** d*** ?

        Janet gave cici her co-sign !

        U mad RihFLOP can never be beyonce so she settled for making fly-by night #1 singles with no album sales to back it up ?

      • CHUDDS December 10, 2012

        Say what you want about Rihanna, but she’s an international superstar, while Ciara is performing at Motel 6 in Decatur. Ciara WISHES for half of the fame that she has! Guuuurl.

      • PSA (FAF) December 11, 2012

        fame from getting her ass beat? KI !

      • CHUDDS December 11, 2012

        Daring, Rihanna was selling albums before the incident. She even won a Grammy the night OF the incident. Like I said f*****, keep it cute! Muah.

      • NFG (No f**** Given) December 11, 2012

        Ciara doesn’t have terrible vocals. Least she can stay on tune. And you don’t always need a powerhouse voice to have a good voice.

  5. queen ciara best performer ever is back!!!!! December 10, 2012

    oh my!!!! she’s gonna kill it!!!!!and put all the other performers in shame!lol
    love her so bad!!!!

  6. CRE8TIVEi December 10, 2012


  7. Slayara December 10, 2012

    This will deff. be interesting, you guys might come at Ciara, but you can’t deny that she has alot of talent, i believe in her this era, i don’t expect her to SMASH, but to have moderate sucess.
    After all Ciara is now like a ”new” artist so she have to be treated that way, i believe the album after OWA will have better sucess!
    – Go Ciara.

  8. Slayara December 10, 2012

    Why did that come out as a reply though..

  9. Monstarebel (Tamartian) December 10, 2012

    I can’t with Janet Jackson Jr.

    • NFG (No f**** Given) December 11, 2012

      JJ Jr slayyyss.

  10. Berry blue December 10, 2012

    Ciara will be the highlight of that night. Its sad knowing that some of y’all feel to hate for no reason lmao, can’t appreciate a good performer when you see one. There is no doubt Ciara is probably the greatest performer as of now. She may not have the best voice but I hear improvement. But her voice has always been sweet like honey to me. And for that Janet Jackson comment, do you not know Janet appreciates Ciara and everything she does? They even did a song together…I hope they do something else in the future it would be epic <3

    • NFG (No f**** Given) December 11, 2012

      YES VERY SWEET AND CUTE. If I want strong vocals I will listen to whitney or jennifer hudson.

  11. ENOUGH ONIKA December 10, 2012

    Sucks when you have so much talent but horrible a catalog of music post The Evolution.

    • Minajetwa December 10, 2012

      Check Ride, I run it, Like a Surgeon, Work, you can get it, I dont remember, sorry, sorry remix part 2 – You call that horrible?? You must be DEAF or have HORRIBLE taste in music.

    • NFG (No f**** Given) December 11, 2012

      Not true. People didn’t give her other stuff a chance. And she DOES have good songs on ONE woman army I bet but probably wont match her success of goodies unfortunately. Promo is the key I guess tho.

    • An0thrDream December 10, 2012

      Kelly Rowland is DOPE!!! and I love her new material, but what does she have to do w/this post??

      Im excited that Ciara and Kelly Rowland are spawning refreshed careers in the same time frame, R&B fans celebrate! Dont divide them, thats childish

  13. Wuddup December 10, 2012

    Kelly Rowlnd Is The New Princess Of R&B Now……

    • CHUDDS December 10, 2012


  14. Famous December 10, 2012

    I like ciara I bought all her albums and her singles. I just need her management to step it up! Ciara it’s not to late to become a Jessica Simpson and get into fashion and get your coins that way.

    • SdotB December 11, 2012

      Ciara got coins…and for ur info she INTO fashion as she travels the world to model, she spent a lot of time living in Paris in the recent years making a living off modeling and doing fashion shows…do ur homework!

  15. Yo Mammy December 10, 2012

    NEW SINGLE PLEASEEE! She needs another pop collaboration like LS&M.

    Leave Got Me Good alone lol. it sounds so dated 🙁

    I try to root for Ciara but it always seems like she goes down the same route as before. Got Me Good is basically Gimme Dat…and Work…and Lose Control…and Get Up…and 1,2 Step…and Goodies…and etc….and etc lol

    • SdotB December 11, 2012

      No it’s not…LS&M featured Justin Timberlake and not even that helped the single do really well…GMG gives an entirely different vibe than the songs u mentioned, it’s a lot more dramatic and it’s more of an uptempo R&B feel as opposed to pop…she’s doing things organically now since all the so called “change-ups” didn’t work for her in the recent years…u people request that she does this and do that, and when she does, no one pays her any mind…I think that she has a better focus now and this era seems a lot more conceptual, she’s doing more shows and she has a lot better press now, which will be more of a benefit for her this time around…even if OWA isn’t a SMASH HIT, I think it’ll def do way better #’s than her last two efforts!!

  16. BABY T December 10, 2012

    she looks white in that picture lol

  17. benny December 10, 2012

    finally a new performance but “Got me good” won’t get her back to the top. the only thing that’s good about that song is the chorus…the song is okay though but nothing great so please give us a new single (what happened to overdose and livin it up?)

    • SdotB December 11, 2012

      those were only buzz singles

  18. mr.m December 10, 2012

    Ciara >>>>>>>>>>>>>> Rihanna

    • SdotB December 11, 2012

      I’m a fan of both artists!!…this is how I see it, Ciara is DEF more TALENTED than Rihanna in regards to PERFORMANCE!! (Hands Down)….in terms of music and vocals, I think Rihanna takes the flag…although Ci-Ci has some great music, Rihanna has more MEMORABLE music; CLASSICS…we cannot take that away from Rih-Rih (as much as her character has been rubbing me the wrong way lately)…but ultimately when it comes down to putting the music to visuals, Ciara takes that cake, eats a slice, then smashes the rest in Rihanna’s face!! Rihanna has some good videos and mediocre performances, but she doesn’t come close to the underrated Ciara in that department!

      • NFG (No f**** Given) December 11, 2012

        Better vocals? Rihanna? Well I guess she can hit higher notes more stronger but she still sounds like a goat trying to though….

        Ciara Princess Harris (born October 25, 1985), known as Ciara (pronounced /siːˈɛrə/, see-err-ə),[1] is an American singer, songwriter, dancer, actress and fashion model. Born in Austin, Texas, she traveled around the world during her childhood, only to land in Atlanta, Georgia where she met music producer Jazze Pha. With his help, she signed a record deal with LaFace Records.
        In 2004, Ciara released her debut studio album Goodies, which spawned three hit singles: “Goodies,” “1, 2 Step,” and “Oh.” The album was certified triple platinum by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA), and earned her four nominations at the 48th Grammy Awards. She released her second studio album, Ciara: The Evolution, in 2006 which spawned the hit singles “Get Up,” “Promise,” and “Like a Boy.” The album reached number one in the US and was certified platinum. Her third studio album Fantasy Ride, released in 2009, was considerably less successful than Ciara’s first two albums. However, it produced the worldwide top-ten hit “Love S** Magic” featuring Justin Timberlake, which earned her a Grammy Award nomination for Best Pop Collaboration with Vocals. The following year, Ciara released her fourth studio album Basic Instinct, which was met with low sales and continued a downward trend in her commercial success. In 2011, she signed a new record deal with Epic Records, and is preparing to release her upcoming fifth studio album, One Woman Army, which is preceded by the lead singles “Sorry” and “Got Me Good.”
        Since making her musical debut in 2004, Ciara has attained eight Billboard Hot 100 top-ten singles, including a number one. She has also earned numerous awards and accolades, including three BET Awards, three MTV Video Music Awards, three MOBO Awards, and one Grammy Award. Ciara has sold over seven million albums worldwide,[2] and more than 4.3 million albums and 6.9 million digital singles in the United States alone.[3]

    rip king mj

  21. tdot December 10, 2012

    sigh…. I i love Ciara but I wish she had a better song. She is beautiful and talented but she needs BETTER songs!

    She also needs to work harder… One TV performance a month and one concert a month is not gonna do it.

    Step it up CiCi and work a little harder… I m still a fan but I need u to get on ur grind.

    • SdotB December 11, 2012

      How do u know how hard she’s working?? just because u SEE her only once a month on tv doesn’t mean she isn’t busting her hazz to promo the album…Ciara is travelling the world to do promo, meeting fans face to face, interviewing on radio stations, prepping the album, rehearsing for her major performances, and the list goes on…can u do that? I’ll be waiting…

  22. CCFan007 December 10, 2012

    This performance is going to be EPIC! Sunday please get here sooner!!

  23. An0thrDream December 10, 2012

    Without a doubt Ciara is gonna BLOW UP THAT STAGE!!

    Especially knowing she’s gonna mix an MJ tribute in there!! WOW!!!! Im hoping she steals the show!!! Tooo excited right now


  24. Christina Aguilera December 11, 2012

    Ciara is PAINFULLY irrelevant. Like its not even funny anymore. MY irrelevancy is funny, Ciaras is just sad & pathetic. It’s hard to believe that she was once on top six years ago. Wowsers!!!

    • Sleazy December 11, 2012

      Honey I love xtina and ciara my top 2! But honey did you forget bout xtina 80k so let’s not

      • NFG (No f**** Given) December 11, 2012

        Ciara slays xtina this era tho. Xtina sounds horrible live and her body looks a hot mess. My vote gonna have to go with Ciara.

  25. nickalus Randle December 11, 2012

    she is sucha good performer, IDK whats up with her music tho? I love me CIARA, sorry is cute, got me good is cute, BUT they just dont bring that FIRE like she did on albums 1 & MY FAVORITE 2 !!!!

  26. Sleazy December 11, 2012

    Ciara slays!! That’s it she is just 1 of the best All she needs herself nd 2 dancers no props no lights Fingering her v***** on stage (you know who does that) she is just is amazing Now tell me Who’s bad?

  27. Pretty knowles December 11, 2012

    Ciara has no vocal talent. People are no longer here for good dancing and sour singing. Almost 100% of her fanbase were teenagers and we outgrew her! I still wish her the best of luck 🙂

    • benny December 11, 2012

      it’s a good song that’s lacking not the voice

    • NFG (No f**** Given) December 11, 2012

      She has a small voice but still it works and her tone sounds better than Rihanna’s.

  28. skintightjeans December 11, 2012

    I’m embarrassed for you people thinking Ciara is laying down some slayage. She is not and you ought to be ashamed of yourselves for thinking she is. The b**** is not snatching wigs, weaves, toupees or anything else.

    • Mb92 December 11, 2012

      What R&B artist is? even beyonce is starting to flat line

    • NFG (No f**** Given) December 11, 2012

      She IS laying down slayage. Just cuz she doesn’t have c****** in ppl’s faces like Rihanna and clawing her face every 2 seconds in performances doesn’t means she isn’t. She BRINGS it on stage. Best believe.

      • skintightjeans December 12, 2012

        Well that’s YOUR opinion…..the only thing she is bringing is sleep because she’s boring to me. But if you want to support flops, then go ahead ma’am/sir.

  29. NFG (No f**** Given) December 11, 2012

    I hated Got me Good at first. But I finally listened to the song again and it is quite catchy tho I will say not her best song. Far from it. But all these performances lately have made me start to take her seriously again. I hope she does well!

  30. jamilaa December 12, 2012

    hahahahahahahahahaha i lafffffff in swahili!! CHILE PULEEEEZZZ! ciara who? dis flop is so irrelevant ! even onika couldn’t help with that dead i am legit rubbish! yeah yeah riri cut sing,rubbing her c****** dis and dat…bla bla bla bla….u guys can abuse riri all u want she is 1 billion times more relevant ,successful than dis flop…..its not about what u did 6yrs ago! we aint talking 10.15yrs ago like lilkim or mariah! just 6yrs ago and dis drag queen done flopping left,right and center…buhahahahaha flopping east,west,north and south!! buhahahahahahaha SHE A HAS BEEN FLOP..POINT BLANK PERIOD……

  31. NFG (No f**** Given) December 12, 2012

    And anybody that defends r**** cuz she can sale but can’t sale talent I “laff” at as well. What excuse will y’all make make when her success declines too? Lol

  32. BRITNEY HIVE December 12, 2012

    Y’all b****** love to bring up Rihanna! She is not thinking about Ciara irrelevant ass!!!who said Ciara stays on tune? bish pleeeaasee you can go on YouTube and watch her sing acapella, off key FLAT and MONOTONE. And before u say anything about my name, I ain’t no Britney fan my NAME is Britney b**** I am only here for bey and Rih! Ciara is a NONFACTOR deal lamessss!!!!

    • skintightjeans December 12, 2012


  33. Taey ( loves Queen Beyonce and Rihanna) hates Ciara + C squad December 13, 2012

    Ciara is a flop period. She’s a mainstream singer who’s lastest two albums have not been certified. That = flop I’m sorry. She is of this generation debuted in 2004 it’s 2012 and she has no relevance. I don’t understand why record labels pump money into people like that when your missing out on developing a new artist with a chance at capturing attention. Sure people like f****** Mariah Carey will always be able to make a come back… But Ciara? Not gonna happen… She’s not s*** enough to men, she doesn’t sing good enough for the women, and her music isn’t good enough for the white folk. Only thing she’s good at is dancing but nobody wants to hear the music she gonna dance 2. When have you ever been just out and about and heard someone listening to Ciara. Her music is disgustingly dated. It amazes me how people on this very site come for Rihanna’s music and praise Ciara mess. I guess that’s what haters do. But Rihannas 5 back to back platinum plaques prove Ciara’s music is s*** and Rihanna’s is the s***! Oh and Sorry flopped so did got me good. And guess its on to flop single #3 for the upcoming flop album. Rihanna’s flops sell 3 million : ) can’t wait for her #1 flop album to sell to go platinum. I wonder what Ciara’s flop album will sell? Rihanna sings better then Ciara also. But who cares about that? Has Queen Beyonce even acknowledged the existence of Ciara? I don’t think I ever heard the Queen even mention her Before?Beyonce is so shady I love it! Pay that manly b**** dust!
