Worried hype for Ciara’s new single ‘I Bet’ may be losing steam?

If so, worry no longer, for the R&B diva is said to have booked a performance spot at a major sport event set to turn her VEVO water into iTunes wine!

Full story below…

The singer had been expected to appear at Sydney’s ‘MVP Nightclub’ to promote her new single in the market next month.

However, today saw the club reveal that they’ve decided to push her appearance back to February 28th to allow the star to perform at a “NBA performance in the US” set to be hold around the same time as the original appearance date.

Basketball enthusiasts will know that the only NBA-related event set to take place around this time is the forthcoming NBA All-Star Game 2015, kicking off on February 13th and ending on the 15th.

A performance at the sporting event would mark the biggest promotional appearance secured for ‘Bet‘ thus far, and would come one year after ‘Victory’ singer Janelle Monae was handpicked to perform at the 2014 NBA All-Star Game’s halftime show.

    Good for you Ciara. I’m sure she will do well.

    • Toohotfortv January 21, 2015

      Now I generally like ciara as an entertainer but i really hope she’s not singing the National Anthem. No ma’am. She’s risking catching a charge. Terrorism! Espionage! She has a baby to raise.

      • TheElusiveLamb January 21, 2015

        LMAOOOOO! that’s shady as hell.

  2. BeyRihLiyah January 20, 2015

    im sure she’s going to slay her parking lot performance after the all star game 🙂

    • FutureCiara January 20, 2015

      When will Aaliyah’s hologram?

      • BeyRihLiyah January 20, 2015

        how many people are going to change the channel when it’s time for her to perform?

    • Pat January 21, 2015

      BeyRihLiyah, lmfao!

  3. FutureCiara January 20, 2015

    Well the club can’t say her team didn’t give ample amount of ahead notice….. LMFAO!!! Cuz they wanted to try her last time in LA for gay pride when she clearly cancelled ahead. These club promoters be salty AF!
    Silly LA queens !!

    But this is pretty huge!! Get that PROMO TRAIN GOING SIS!!!!

    And where the F*** is ” I BET ” on iTunes??????? I’m bout to write a sickening letter to EPIC records and LA Reid! And get those queens right to+gether!!!

    • Cupid January 21, 2015

      Honestly I’m starting to think the song isn’t the official lead single. If she’s performing at the game I feel she’ll be performing other tracks.

      • NiCKI WILL SLAY January 21, 2015

        Ciara is not stupid enough to perform a BREAK UP Ballad at a basketball game!
        She will MURDER her dance performance and that will help promote her touring.
        “BET” is not a lead single material…. It’s a good album filler song tho.
        I want an urban dance club track for her…. not no pop dance mess. HOOD. URBAN….. LIKE CBROWN’S “LOYAL”
        That would go to number one.

  4. Keri Qween January 20, 2015

    Hopefully she works on her live vocals before then

    • FutureCIARA January 20, 2015

      Not shading, when your fav is busy performing at empty high school gymnasiums!

      • Keri Qween January 20, 2015

        Wasn’t her show blackie she was the opening act, but still got her coins! Your fave is another black statistic, a single unwanted baby’s mother and she still can’t sing with that off key whispering!

      • FutureCiara January 20, 2015

        Hahahahahaha, you sound madT sis! Mad that Bey cancelled out Keris career while my fave still getting booked and making albums!

      • Pat January 21, 2015

        @Future, 100k though…

    • NiCKI WILL SLAY January 21, 2015

      She will prerecord b/c she will be dancing her but off.
      She aint performing no ballad at the All Star Game.
      If she does then she should fire her mgt team.
      Ciara is not dumb.

  5. #TeamTinashe Stan January 20, 2015

    See this is what she needs……. but then again, the new single doesn’t help though in my opinion.

    It’s time for her team to be more serious with her as she is getting older.

  6. Rihboy January 20, 2015

    I see this as a ploy to turn attention to her before the album drop. To be expected: recycled dance moves, lip sync, whisper vocals, smoke and plenty of lights, 7 back up dancers, a back bend. I really don’t see this helping her. Her teams idea of promotion is tired. She needs to ditch the game and travel to promote. This is why she remains local. Smh

    • Naomi Campbell stan January 20, 2015

      LMAO, No lies detected AT ALL lol I can’t.

    • Slay_Hive January 20, 2015

      LOL You are a fan of Rihanna’s surely you could stand basic vocals and subpar dancing with background dancers carrying the show. Atleast Ciara has a talent. She deserves the success more that forehead does.

      • TheElusiveLamb January 20, 2015

        No. Rihanna deserves all of the success she has.

      • Slay_Hive January 20, 2015

        Ok hun that’s your opinion. I don’t find Rihanna to be very talented.(Basic) She is just one of the lucky ones. With the right team, writers, and producers. BYE

      • Rihboy January 20, 2015

        Rihanna can own a stage standing still. Yeah she’s not the best dancer, but her vocals are way above Ciara’s. It’s more than whisper singing. Ciara’s talent is? Dancing? More like recycling. Rihanna deserves it all babes. She stepped on the scene after homegirl and can pretty much buy homegirl. Yet she’s from the left side of an island. *sips tea*

      • Slay_Hive January 20, 2015

        I stopped reading after “Rihanna can own a stage standing still” LMAOOOOOOO Bish in which world?? and sweetheart Rihanna’s “vocals” are no better than Ciara’s. I can’t

      • TheElusiveLamb January 20, 2015

        So because YOU don’t find Rihanna talented, that means she doesn’t deserve her success? Well its a good thing you aren’t the voice of the people, because the GP thinks otherwise. You are so obsessed with Rihanna. I know you’re Navy though honey bun.

      • FutureCIARA January 21, 2015

        The Nazi is deluded! Lmfao!

      • Stop the madness!! January 21, 2015

        Lmao @ Rihanna can own a stage standing still, what kind of practical joke is this. Oh the Navy lol.

      • Slay_Hive January 21, 2015

        NO I don’t think she deserves her success. She is BASIC TO ME!!! She can’t sing, she can’t dance, she isn’t a performer and her “hits” are really cheap in generic TO ME!!! B**** don’t eva call me a Navy. I’ve never purchased a thing from Rihanna. Hop off my d***! thanx 😀

    • kp January 21, 2015

      Yim dead at your post smoke and a back.bend im.dead !!!!!

  7. FutureCIARA January 20, 2015

    Here come the navy to throw it…. Need to be worried about Adele slaying RL8 this year! Let Ciara get her a piece and stop being hatin a** bitchzz!

    • BeyRihLiyah January 20, 2015

      but who is Ciara slaying? the fact that she canceled a concert at a night club to perform at the all star game lmaoooooooooooo

      • FutureCiara January 20, 2015

        Waiting for your point…….

    • Rihboy January 20, 2015

      Honey what part of she will slay your fave too didn’t you understand? Your point is stupid.

  8. DanYiel Teflon January 20, 2015

    I’d listen to Ciara over Ri-Whine-A ANY DAMN DAY!! Those goatish SOUNDS ANNOY ME DAILY!!

    • Naomi Campbell stan January 20, 2015

      I’m not here for Ciara’s whispering, it’s like she’s telling me something top secret.

      • Paulo January 20, 2015

        OH MY GOD I love CiCi but I’m screaming right now lmao

      • Charlieyoncé January 21, 2015

        Naomi Campbell you killed me!!!!! LOL!

        I’m here for Ciara but hot damn sunshine LMAO!

    • TheElusiveLamb January 20, 2015

      I’m sure people rather see and hear Rihanna before they watch the Gremlin Mistress still live off Biggie lyrics.

    • Stephy Jackson January 20, 2015

      Damn, you be dragging Rihanna for blood…

  9. #TeamTinashe Stan January 20, 2015

    Yes Rihanna does sing better than Ciara. Rihanna sounds good, can control her vocals…. well at times but she shows more vocal prowess than Ciara.

    • Naomi Campbell stan January 20, 2015

      Who doesn’t have more vocal prowess than Ciara, well, maybe not Cassie. They should have a whispe-off.

      • Pat January 21, 2015

        lmfao!!

  10. xedos January 20, 2015

    WHY YOU ALL THINK ITS THE HALF TIME.? THEY’RE DIFFERENT SECTIONS TO PERFORM AT THE ALL STAR GAME

  11. FutureCIARA January 20, 2015

  12. #TeamTinashe Stan January 21, 2015

    Hahaha! @FutureIsntInCiara don’t get MAD about the truth. And how about you and the CiWhorehouse stans try to help your thotful fave (Yes I did say that) secure a worldwide stadium tour of her own? It’s been about 10 years and she hasn’t secured one yet.
    And you don’t want me to do the Ciara “CLOCKED” countown on your fave right now do you? Not a good look. That’s what I thought.
    HASHTAG: #YouTriedTho 😉

    • FutureCIARA January 21, 2015

      I honestly feel like your like 12 or something when I attempt to get your elementary reads. Your hashtags, terms, misspelled names and grammar are all recycled and have been done many times before. You bring nothing fresh or exciting. And tbh I would be embarrassed to have Stans like you around trolling blogs, if I were TinaFlop.

      • #TeamTinashe Stan January 21, 2015

        Correction: “I honestly feel like you’re 12…”
        LMFAO!!! I got rid of you to the point you had to use different accounts to comment on here. Do I need to do that again? Haha.
        HASHTAG: #IamLIVING 😀

  13. #TeamTinashe Stan January 21, 2015

    Do you know how many Legends FLOPPED with their first or two albums and they later became household names? Plenty. I rather my fave FLOP right now than later on and have no resiliency of coming back.
    And I don’t “Stan” for sales, I stan for “Talent.” Just know that your Thotful fave’s vocals can’t even match up to Tinashe’s 5 year vocal performance.

    • FutureCIARA January 21, 2015

      My favz debut album sold 124,750 copies in its opening week. GOODIES is certified triple platinum by the RIAA, with over 2.7 million copies coming from the United States. The album fared well internationally being certified Platinum by the Canadian Recording Industry Association (CRIA) and Silver by the British Phonographic Industry (BPI). Goodies earned Ciara two Grammy nominations at the 48th Grammy Awards including Best New Artist and Best Rap/Sung Collaboration for “1, 2 Step.”

      Now what was that you were saying?

      I’ll give you another chance… But never pull that receipt as an excuse EVER!! A lot of the Stans favz debuts have SLAYED! It’s just TinaFlop that sunk @ 17k first week! BYE!

  14. #TeamTinashe Stan January 21, 2015

    Exactly. Can’t even drag nothing back. LMFAO!!!!!

    Take a fold out chair out and have a seat -> _/
    like your fave at the AMA Awards 2013 watching Riri win an Icon Award like an idiot after trying to threaten her about “booking stages.” Hehehe! 😀
    http://youtu.be/L5EmY6RRWkw

  15. FutureCIARA January 21, 2015

    Lmfao!!! Girl pathetic a** still using Rihanna YouTube receipts…..

    I’m done with u, goodnight! Try again on your favz sophomore attempt!

    http://youtu.be/7bGUAh1jzgU

  16. #TeamTinashe Stan January 21, 2015

    You can stan for past sales all you want but are you and the stans holding it up to it nor doing better now? Exactly what I thought.
    Somebody needs to tell you that them “Goodies” have been dismantled for years upon years now. No coming back.

    • FutureCIARA January 21, 2015

      And I brought up Goodies receipts, because you have the nerve to act like everyone of our favz debut albums flopped with 17k first week….

      You should probably exit –>

      • #TeamTinashe Stan January 21, 2015

        It’s time to rethink about going back to school. Did I say “everyone” or did I say “plenty” of artists didn’t do strong numbers on their debut albums? Reading is essential.
        And in this comment box that you replied to I clearly talked about CiWhereRa’s fans still to this very day can’t hold her up in the album sales department since The “Evolution” album. Meaning that if she did make 100K the first week with “Goodies” and surpassing that amount with the second album why can’t it happen now? Waits for the deception……

  17. FutureCIARA January 21, 2015

    Yet my favz most recent first week album sales of 58k in the US alone still SLAYED your favz First week and overall WW sales to date!

    FAWK U mean!

    • Cam January 21, 2015

      For someone whos been in the game as long as Ciara thats pretty sad that you have to compare her to someone whos a reletavely new solo artist who really didnt have much promotion or push from her management/label.

  18. Wheresmyjizzle January 21, 2015

    Ready to see this.

  19. Merril Owns January 21, 2015

    Finally she’s tryna do real promo!

    Visit TheyFlockin.blogspot.com @TheyFlockin for the latest new music and new artists!

  20. #TeamTinashe Stan January 21, 2015

    This little boy @FutureCiara really has the audacity to say that I’m a kid but it’s on here mispelling words, making up names to trash other artists and makes fun of Aaliyah’s death all the time. And that right there is a lost and bothered CiWhorehouse stan because it’s fave literally is being clocked by blog sites, lawsuits, Breakfast Club, HOT 97, Marlon Wayans, her baby daddy, Rihanna and hasn’t been making noise since 2007. Oh and the “receipts” are all there. Ha! But I am here just LIVING 😀
    HASHTAG: #IamLIVING

  21. coolness January 21, 2015

    I’d love to see Ciara get her shine back as a performer because regardless of her dwindling popularity, there’s no denying she kills it on stage.

  22. Mark111 January 21, 2015

    One thing Ciara never lost was killing a stage. But I want her to do her hits, no one wants to hear I Bet at the All Star game.

  23. The_Famous_Ciara January 21, 2015

    That’s my girl. Bring the goodies back!
    Ciara The Evolution 338,000
    beyoncie (4) 310,000
    rihanna unapologetic 237,000

  24. Yonce January 21, 2015

    The same way C-error has her ears covered, is how everyone is going to look while she whispers on a mic with pre-recorded vocals. Can she just sit down somewhere and take care of her abandoned child? Her time has been up since 2006.

  25. Sarah January 21, 2015

    Not sure how/why Tinashe fans are disrespecting Ciara..Tinashe is a new artist and Ciara is a veteran..Tinashe doesnt even have half of the impact Ciara had in her debut…you kids kill me..Congrats Ciara..I’m anticipating this new era!

  26. Uknowdakid January 21, 2015

    I don’t get the beef between the tinashe and ciara fans. Ciara been in the game for ten years and tinashe just starting . No need to compare the two . No matter what tinashe still has a ways to go before she will have the impact of ciara soooooo everyone needs to be humble shut up and enjoy the music

  27. rihanna is groupie January 21, 2015

    Too little too late. She is like 30; been in the game for over 10 years. She has nothing to show for it. I mean, she was like Kim Kardashian bag carrier on KUWTK.

    Rita seemed to get more out of rolling with the K clan. Ok, she performs at the NBA all star; that is urban event catering to to urban people. A small club in sydney? Rita and Kim K go on BIG TV shows in Sydney. I mean…..I guess Rita, Rihanna, Katy, Arinana, Beyonce, Megan and Ellie have nothing to worry about in Ciara.

    I see she is STILL Tryin to be a fashion. Kim K and RITA has left her behind when it comes to fashion.

  28. RICHIE_RICH January 21, 2015

    Bring the fire cici , she slays the stage !!!!!!!

  29. Rowlandstones January 21, 2015

    Good for Ciara , you better kill it girl

  30. Tyler January 21, 2015

    Collectively, Ciara is more talented than Rihanna. They’re both basic vocalist but at least Ciara brings something to the table when it comes to dancing. She’s an exceptional dancer. Rihanna on the other hand, is basic all the way through. Whether we are talking about vocals, dancing, or performing.

    • Rihboy January 21, 2015

      Rihanna has delivered many commendable performances. She does well when she needs or wants to. Ciara on the other hand has no vocals! Not one commendable performance. Don’t even talk about her BET performance with the obvious lip syncs and dry humping the floor. The masses obviously believe otherwise. Rihanna’s dominating every industry Ciara wish she could dominate. I feel so bad for her. She’s old and still trying to leave a mark. Does she even have her own wax figure? Girl bye

      • Tyler January 21, 2015

        She doesn’t put on a better show than Ciara

  31. Shawn Mac January 29, 2015

    Most of y’all on here just of brunch of hateing ass women cuz she s*** as hell and y’all look f***** up and broke

  32. smh January 30, 2015

    She can perform on the moon, she still can’t sing.
