    Lil kim’s and mariah’s professional impersonators looks colorful with half the talent.

      lil kim had ghostwriters and her music has always been basic, thats why her SOLO work never got grammy nominated. And as for Nic, her metaphors, flow n wordplay r crazy.. Kim could never.

      Basic as in she couldn’t sell unless she rappin’ about s**. And as far as trynna compare Nic & Ari….you must be mad your fav can’t get a buzz no more?

    Wow. No shade because I appreciate a good performance from anyone who’s talent shines, but this performace needed work. Nikki and Ariana had zero chemistry together, they looked liked they were being swallowed up in that stage (dancers perhaps?) and it just seemed flat in my opinion. Interestingly, Ariana singing parts we’ve already heard Jessie sing live serve to highlight that few can execute a vocal live as well as Jessie J. And Nikki still rap-syncing??? This is how you kill the energy of a live performace.

    • It’s Me, Jessie, & Ari September 22, 2014

      rap-syncing? really? kill yoself.

    Big fan of these two BUT nah, could we get some choreo or something? Something was lacking.

    • It’s Me, Jessie, & Ari September 22, 2014

      It wasn’t a single performance. Nicki was doin’ her 30 minute set and had her come out to perform “Bang Bang” with her.

  4. Dev September 20, 2014

    As far as i am concerned Ariana was not meant to duet on this song as she is out sung by Jessie over and over. This preformance shows that the song is bigger than her and she is unable to preform it alone.
    Its funny that Ariana image really does not fit her sound.
    I;m never really that happy to see Nikki live or pre recorded.

    • It’s Me, Jessie, & Ari September 22, 2014

      It would make no sense for her to perform this entire song alone. Are you forgetting she’s a rapper not singer? Even though she can sing, Jessie J’s and Nic’s vocals are completely different. It would have ruined the song. She’s NICKI FU*KIN’ MINAJ…nothing is bigger than her.

    Lil Kim passed the baton to Nicki and Nicki took that sh*t to another stratosphere. Lil Kim was damn good but Nicki’s artistry is on another level. People really need to stop mentioning little Ariana with names like Whitney or Mariah the better comparison would be Christina and she’s not even there yet so stop playing yourself comparing Ariana to the greatest female singers of all time cause Ari will never see that level. She’s good but not great.

      Eat my puussyy

    • Jansel September 20, 2014

      Lmao but that baton metaphor is flawed. Kim held onto that baton for her life and Nicki broke her fingers off of that b**** and glued it onto her body

    • It’s Me, Jessie, & Ari September 22, 2014

      What’s more disturbing is them comparing someone who’s what? 21? ..just beginning her career. To people who were in the industry for as long as she’s been born.

    Is it me, or can u not understand
    Wat arianna says when she sings!!
    She needs more vocal training!!

  7. lee September 20, 2014

    Nicki lip rap singing

    • It’s Me, Jessie, & Ari September 22, 2014

      Stupidest s*** I’ve been hearing today. So I guess when she pulls the mic from her mouth 2 or 3 times early and the volume of her verse is heard lower means nothing.

    A pop tart and a thirsty sluut

  9. Ummm September 20, 2014

    Lip synch for your life Nicki…. Stop recording verses you can’t execute live miss thing

    • NICKIMINAJ QUEEN September 20, 2014

      stfu truth

    SORRY BUTJessieJ makes the Song!! After watching Ariana & Nicki together it’s clear Jessie pulls the Group together-I’m sure if it wasn’t for the example Jessie set at the VMA’s they would both prefer to Lip Sync-Jessie brings whatever song she’s performing to life on stage-Nickis just not use to live & I guess maybe Ariana just not experienced enough yet to bring excitement to live performance-this performance just not the level (even though the sound was better) of the VMA’s-Hope if they do X factor UK -Jessie is there!!

  11. Sure ok September 20, 2014

    Why are people acting like Missy Elliot doesn’t exist?
    Missy and Lauryn Hill were the Queens before Nicki. Lil Kim was #3 or #4 but she was never considered the all out queen of Rap because once Lauryn well crazy, Missy slayed Lil Kim in singles,sales,impact,influence, and so much more.

    Ariana is so basic! Vocally and everything in between! Christina,Beyonce,Pink,Jesse J,Kelly Rowland(on a good day),and so many other female singers>The Mariah Clone’s vocals at her best. All this hype but not one gold album yet!All those hits but nothe one single #1!
