Must See: Tinashe Blazes ‘Kimmel’ With ‘2 On’

Published: Friday 10th Oct 2014 by Sam

Tinashe showed up and all the way out on the Jimmy Kimmel Live! show moments ago.

The starlet, who is grinding the promo trail in support of her debut album ‘Aquarius’ (which hit stores this week), thrilled the audience with an electrifying rendition of the LP’s lead single ‘2 On’.

Watch below as the budding stage blazer blossoms before your eyes below. SchoolBoy Q features.


Loving the extra bells and whistles added, such as the live band, troop of dancers, and even more swagger. The California native is certainly one to watch.

    Cute girl but really nothing to see here. 18k right? I also need for y’all to stop usin. The term Slayed so loosely. My 11 year old niece and her friends dance better than this.

      Then they should be able to get a record deal way quicker than she did

      • JazThatBoi October 10, 2014

        ^^^ Who said her niece was trying to get a deal. And the music business is more business than music…everyone knows that

  3. Sweetnothings78 October 10, 2014

    ❤️ This girl. Mixtapes are soooo good as is ‘Aquaries’.

  4. Beysus October 10, 2014

    Wow!!! That was so cool!!! 🙂

  5. Islandboi242 October 10, 2014

    Tinashe killed it ! She was performing like it was her last!

  6. Nicki Is Queen October 10, 2014

    I’m starting to really like her album!

  7. NOLIES October 10, 2014

    Yep. Now this is a performance. The new live instruments and etc was needed. At first she was like counting in her head, at time progresses she becomes more natural and energetic commanding the stage. 18k or 108k, she deserves a chance to win.

  8. Blatant October 10, 2014

    I just LOVE Tinashe for the blatant incessant love for Janet she has.. Its all out of love and if you hear her album, that flourishes like TGJ STANS for CHERYL COLE!!!! No JOKES!

  9. Keith October 10, 2014

    I’m not sure that “slayed” is the term that should be used here but you can see her growth as a stage performer. What happened to her male dancers, though? I think she danced harder (which is her strong point) with them. I like the sonic combination of her and DJ Mustard, “Checks In” should have been on her album.

    One more thing, with all these “extras” (staging, instrumentation, dancers) her check (if this record doesn’t SELL) is going to be miniscule. Unfortunately, that’s the first thing I thought about when I watched this clip…don’t want her to be upside-down in her contract if she doesn’t succeed.

    • Garçon October 10, 2014

      Why the fu€k you counting her money?

  10. hey October 10, 2014

    Ciara could never sing and dance like this…Some parts were sung live but she did indeed use a backing track.

    • Antonio October 10, 2014

      go watch Ciara perform Got Me Good on Kimmel and let’s see Tinashe perform that well live

    I wish this genre isn’t doing this bad commercially because recent releases have been nothing but impressive. I want nothing but the best for Tinashe, and all of them in general doing R&B.
    And I love this song.

  13. Dancer October 10, 2014

    Damn, she got all Beyonce’s dancers from tour! lol I like this girl!

  14. TRUTH SERUM October 10, 2014

    Alright Tinashe, I see you. Good job! She’s like a Noah up Ciara and Aaliyah with some Janet .

    • TRUTH SERUM October 10, 2014

      *mix of

  15. Ciara stay getting slayed hunty October 10, 2014

    When will Ciara have such artistry?

  16. BubblePopElectric October 10, 2014

    This was EVERYTHING! Tinashe has stepped it up big time! No shade but there are “seasoned” acts 8, 9, 10 years into their careers who cannot deliver a performance of this caliber. And it would appear that the few people hating on this perfection are stans of those aforementioned overhyped and undertalented folks.

  17. Sarah October 10, 2014

    I dont understand why this blog is just full of negative stan battles..This performance was GREAT!!!!! The problem with Tinashe is this song is bigger than she is and nobody knows her as an individual. To the idiots who said Ciara wont ever..well sorry to burst your bubble..but Ciara already DID…get a life and stop all this unnecessary bickering

    • Aquarius October 10, 2014

      Kelly got a platinum album yet?

  18. Yeah I Said It October 10, 2014

    Yess Tee! Do the motherfcking thang! The future is so bright for her! 😀

    • MisdamenorFan October 10, 2014

      2 OFF.

  20. Antonio October 10, 2014

    And Tinashe stans are coming for Ciara when Ciara has given better performances during her Goodies era when she could not sing at all. Talk to me when Tinashe sells Basic Instinct numbers or better yet, when Tinashe performs for venues larger than 500 ppl. Ciara’s Got Me Good performance on Kimmel was better than most of these tired ass awards shows performance we’ve seen over the past 2-3 yrs tbqh. Tinashe is cute but she’ll never be Ciara. For an artist who is a flop, so many b****** love jocking her style (Tinashe, Zendaya, Mila J, Sevyn, Tyra B) but I’m sleep tho

    • #yawn October 10, 2014

      jocking Ciara? none of them are jocking Ciara ci-error is nothing but a cheap flop imitation of Janet and Aaliyah .. if it wasn’t for janet and Aaliyah, Ciara and all of them other girls you named wouldn’t even have a style they created that lane

  21. Tipharris October 10, 2014

    I am no Ciara stan by any means but she has been there done that! Her time may have come and gone, but she was pushing more than 17k in the beginning stages of her career. Tinashe does nothing for me vocally.

  22. shawn erik October 10, 2014

    she is an amazing performer live!

    she knows how to work the stage but also is engaged in her performance. schoolboy Q coulda stayed at home though.

  23. MisdamenorFan October 10, 2014

    2 OFF. 17K. Tink Tink. NO!

  24. LB October 10, 2014

    SHE slayed that, yassssss gguuurrrlllll…..FIRE!!!!!!!

  25. cruz October 10, 2014

    Damn that was so dope!!

  26. LIL’ KIM IS THE G.O.A.T. October 10, 2014


    99% of these R&B b!tches could NEVER!

    Flopnika “I’ve never put on a decent performance in my career” Garbaj should be taking notes!!!!

    • jjjschmidt October 15, 2014
