Watch: Kelly Rowland Heats Up ‘Jazz In The Gardens’ With Scorching ‘Ice’ Performance

Published: Monday 17th Mar 2014 by Sam

Kelly Rowland may be collating material for her fifth studio album, however the R&B diva isn’t bowing out of the spotlight to do so.

This weekend saw the 33-year-old rock the 9th annual Jazz In The Gardens festival in Miami, Florida.

Rowland completed an impressive line-up that included the likes of LL Cool J, Ne-Yo, and Jamie Foxx.

Watch below as Ms. Kelly titillates with a blazing performance of ‘Ice’


That said, there was a notable difference in the energy levels brought to the performances that followed. A point which re-affirms a stance we’ve long had on Kelly – she really “serves” and “werks” best when slick and choreographed. Traits all her performances should have.

As long-time believers in her talent and potential, it’s clear Rowland “delivers-delivers” when feeding off great crowds. Yet, as evidenced by the lukewarm audience here, it’s ultimately her job to get them going. It’s not always a given that they will be hot from the jump.

Hence, it’s imperative moving forward, that Kelly plays her strongest card (being a great all-round performer) each and every time. Consistent and constant choreography, fierce struts, wind machines, sass and even pre-records (where need be) could and should be fixtures of her show. For, she has embedded within her ability that countless of her contemporaries could only dream of. She’s simply tasked with erecting a setup that will see that ability pushed to the forefront each and every time she performs. Each and every time.

The following should be the brand and strand of slayage served always…

    Tess’s kelly I new you had it in you boo.. I seen more videos for that show and she sang and danced the whole show.. She sound really good.. Sam where’s the steet life video and the other ones

    LMAO, she’s so basic it’s painful to watch. One would think for someone who was in Destiny’s Child and was seated in front of 7 million viewers a week; she would at least book an ampitheatre, instead she’s performing at Jazz festivals.

    If Demi can book a theater and go on tour, why can’t Kelly?

      Lovebird keep talking, keep being ignorant , keep throwing shades because God will give u a taste of what r u doing right now. Remember my words

        Let’s face it, Queen Bey and Letoya were the only 2 talented people in Destiny’s Child

    Booking and amphitheater has nothing to do with this jazz test.. Everytime she perform people like you always talking about other sht.. Beyoncé, Ciara, Mary j, trey and Ri Ri and have don’t festivals the last few years dame..anyways I like

  5. Skyfall March 17, 2014

    I would wont to believe that Kelly is content with just releasing music and performing wherever she can

  6. DIGGER BEY March 17, 2014

    I see u Miss Kelly! She definitely got it! She’s one of the few who can command an stage. She’has the survivor in her so hating b*tches might as well sit the fawk down. Kelly isn’t going no where. Your favs might go before her lol

  7. jillian March 17, 2014

    Really did u see Michelle on DC fulfilled Atlanta’s tour, she slayed,her vocal control is soo good. Kelly Rowland Has a very smooth tone which I love and she can dance while singing not near B’s level I know but name any other artist other than gaga who can do that ! . Iguess u r black either dark or light so I just have a question why whites support Katy Perry and artists like her who can’t sing live while black people bring down any other artists except thier fav?

  8. IStan4Kelly March 17, 2014

    Kelly sounded amazing, I just wish Sam posted more footage of it lol. But I would love to see her go on a tour and do even bigger things, because Kelly so can do it, and I’ll be supporting her every step of the way.

  9. Queen of R&B March 17, 2014

    The Queen is coming to snatch your wigs

  10. barb princess March 17, 2014

    yes kelly is the queen alright, the queen of not having a record deal

    • PROF March 19, 2014

      You will be surprised! Trust and believe, she is in the studio right now.

  11. UBettaWERK March 17, 2014

    Her performances have gotten better because she finally realized she needs to lip sync live.

  12. Queen of R&B March 17, 2014

    B**** she is still signed with universal but her picture is not on universal Republic site universal Republic is a division with universal so she’s still with universal but not with universal republic now will she leave all together idk but plz don’t be mad because that’s not cute this girl out here getting more money then what she has and you on a computer talking s*** about someone’s life you don’t know about this lady shows you want she wants you to see , but like I said she’s The Queen of R&B compared to all the other lady’s in R&B right now (Not Talking about Bey either because y’all h*** quick to make something about her)

  13. Ceddy March 17, 2014

    Kelly is a flop. Alicia’s and Mary lowest selling album outsold her highest lol. Fantasia sold more. K Michelle sold more, KEyshia and Tamar sold more!!!

  14. BLOW March 18, 2014

    Lol wether you guys support this girl or not she is still making a name for herself and collecting more coins than your faves. While peeps keep speculationg that she has been dropped by her label yet she is working with Pepsi for the world cup in Brasil,
    I love her hustle more than all those names you cited, people just chose not to support her in USA…thats life LMAO

  15. Marcus March 18, 2014

    I don’t get where all the hate is coming from. She did good. Oh wait, I forgot, the Bey hive is the most hateful fan base on planet earth.

  16. Sarah March 19, 2014

    She SLAYED Black Girls Rock!! However Sam you have to realize that those are staged performances more than likely funded by the Event. Jazz in the Gardens is a full blown concert – funded by Kelly..also considering she is allegedly without a label..I guess she had to make due..Nonetheless I was there and Kelly ROCKED!!! ALLL great reviews from that Miami Event!

  17. Sarah March 19, 2014

    DEAD @ Letoya…I guess we are closer to April Fools Day.. @ Lovebird Jazz in The Gardens is actually one of the biggest showcases in Miami….get familiar and get out your favs ass

  18. PROF March 19, 2014

    That is a live performance…unlike others that lip-sync our great anthem and still have to lip-sync when their wig is caught in a fan in fear of being found out.
