Christina Aguilera Fans Slam Ciara & P!nk For “Shading” Singer’s #AMAS Whitney Houston Tribute

Published: Sunday 19th Nov 2017 by Rashad

Ciara‘s accidentally 1,2 stepped into a shady situation thanks to what’s been deemed a GIF-worthy response to Christina Aguilera‘s stirring tribute to Whitney Houston at this year’s American Music Awards.

The highly touted showing saw the belter give her best go at Houston’s challenging ‘Bodyguard’ classics ‘I’m Every Woman,’ ‘I Have Nothing,’ ‘Run To You,’ and more.  But, when Xtina took aim at the late pop icon’s signature hit, ‘I Will Always Love You,’ it appears she wasn’t exactly getting love from everyone in the audience (as evidenced by some perceived side-eyes from the likes of Cici and P!nk).

The infraction did not go unnoticed by Aguilera’s beloved fans, affectionately called #Fighters.  See their fiery responses inside:

See the face Ciara made in the video below:

Ciara “allegedly” branding the performance as just “okay” after its completion:

People are really doing the most! Pink nor Ciara were doing anything worth really talking about.  P!nk’s face was giving us more like “I’m really feeling this” more than disgust.  It’s understandable, however, the ‘Beautiful Trauma’ singer is getting the brunt of most of the “backlash” considering her longstanding rivalry with her former ‘Lady Marmalade’ co-star.

Update:  P!nk’s responded to the hoopla.  See it by clicking here.

    Lol the real shade was in Justin Hartley’s (behind Ciara) face.

    • Bam November 19, 2017

      * also i didn’t detect shade from neither Pink nor Ciara. They simply made the face one makes when hearing a struggle note. It’s not a calculated response it’s an instinctive one. I make it all the time hear MJB live (love her new album though).

    TERRIBLE TRIBUTE. Gaga could have done better than this.

    • Fancy BISH November 19, 2017

      Come on now…Gaga is a vocal talent, but she would’ve struggled too…hell, Whitney would’ve struggled in 2017…those notes are legendary and untouchable…let’s keep it ALL THE WAY REALLY REAL…no shade, just the facts of life lol

  3. Gee November 19, 2017

    Sorry to hurt your feelings Team Xtina but tonight’s performance will be remembered for all the wrong reasons.

  4. China November 19, 2017

    SHE is suppose to be Whitney and Mariah’s equal or replacement??? She DOES NOT have the range of Whitney or songwriting and range of MARIAH. This proves a point. She failed but still love LOVING ME 4 me

  5. TGJ’sTrash November 19, 2017

    People look for any reason to hate on Ciara. she did not say “it was ok” in that video (even though i wont lie it looked like she did)

    she said SO GOOD

  6. TaylorDuh November 19, 2017

    Neither seem to have a problem, faces were made but no shade.

  7. FCK you November 19, 2017

    Christina did a great job as those notes are hard to hit,but she did that and much better than Pink or Ciara could in their wildest dreams

    • gemyny1985 November 19, 2017

      Now stop! y’all know Pink can saaang which y’all we see when her and xtina duet comes out. Now Cici on the other hand should’ve just smiled and kept it cute.

  8. Meteorite November 19, 2017

    RT: from P!nk’s twitter

    “Yes. THIS. Christina f****** killed it tonight for one of our favorite singers ever. This about Whitney, and I am in awe of Christina’s talent. Show the clip where I’m in tears, you negative Nancy’s ??✌?❤️”

  9. Coolio November 19, 2017

    That performance was horrible ewwwww
    Who thats a song you cant do over.
    Why they didnt ger jennifer hudson to do it

  10. smh November 19, 2017

    Ciara should be the last person to shade anybody vocals!!! lmao She is lucky that she is invited to music awards due to the fact she can’t sing. She need to stick to her back up dancing skills.

  11. Lei November 19, 2017

    Sorry but that was not shade, ciara and pink seemed just amazed with the performance, dont try to start a beef, xtina did great job

  12. Torrance November 19, 2017

    So Over Christina doing Whitney tributes period! I would give her the side eye because there are way more people than Christina. Sorry Not Sorry. They need a few female artist possibly one or two black who can take on the Divas body of work. Not made at Ciara because she was right. Stevie could of told you the same. #Honestly

    • macchio November 19, 2017

      Whitney herself was a big Christina fan and gave her her official blessing years ago, in front of a huge audience to witness. If it’s good enough for Ms. Houston then who are you to judge a professional singer?

  13. No thanks November 19, 2017

    Ciara said “It was ok” lol.
    That being said, Ciara is so gorgeous!

    • Rosy November 20, 2017

      Ciara is a messy b**** rihanna forgot to tip her ass

  14. Suicide Blonde November 19, 2017

    Xtina did ok, of course no one will ever be good enough to tribute the likes of Whitney and Mariah, we should know that by now, I mean, she has a great voice but not even close to the outstanding voice Whitney once had, it’s like Beyoncé, she’s a great performer but her tribute to Tina Turner (when she performed Proud Mary) was awful compared to how Tina commanded the stage during that song, they will never be as great as the originals, that’s all.

    • We are the grandchildren of the slaves you couldn’t kill – tyler November 20, 2017

      LIES! Its not even the same thing. Beyonce received nothing but positive critiques of her Proud Mary performance. Come to think about it, I’ve never seen an “awful” Beyonce performance. She can fall down a flight of stairs and still slay. You’re clearly hating.

    • RoyalKev November 20, 2017

      Beyonce killed that Proud Mary performance! What are you talking about love?

  15. Mr.m November 19, 2017

    She did 3 of the hardest songs to sing live in a row!! Whitney herslef never sang “run to you” live … now who can do that? Ciara can whisper her flop ass and sel 3k to her flop ass music … xtina did a good job! Yes, she messed a bit, yes she can do better.. but that will not change the fact that she stole the show and you’ll fave could never. Period

      • mr.m November 20, 2017

        b**** this is a rare recording and it was only released THIS YEAR ..
        She never sang it on a recorded live video not even included on any of her show tour track lists

  16. #TeamTinashe Stan (Major Announcement To Be Released Soon!! :).) November 19, 2017

    Ciara didn’t act shady.
    The guy behind her tho… LMFAOO!!

  17. James M November 20, 2017

    Ciara literally said “So Good” she is a positive nice person and evil people like y’all are trying to hate her for no reason.

  18. UBettaWERK November 20, 2017

    It actually looks like Ciara said.. “SO GOOD..” But i don’t fux with ci ci either way, so whatever

  19. Aj November 20, 2017

    Don’t know why everyone is hating. It’s a tribute and celebration of Whitney. Xtina’s voice is actually a good match for Whitney’s in terms of power and tone plus it was quite soulful. Before anyone calls shade, I ain’t saying Xtina’s voice is as good as Whitney’s. It was a respectful and well sing tribute.

  20. RoyalKev November 20, 2017

    It was okay! I still give Christina a pass for this because it’s so incredibly difficult to reach Bodyguard Whitney standards! Pink actually look like she was giving Chrissy a lot of love! Ciara wasn’t rude at all. For some reason, I don’t think she loved that performance, but she didn’t throw shade at all!

  21. Tokyo Vanity fan November 20, 2017

    Christina always sounds like she is trying to regurgitate food when she sings. Never understood what was supposed to be so good about her. And this performance sucked.

  22. DanYiel Iman November 20, 2017

    I actually liked her version, there was only 1 Whitney Elizabeth Houston!! ?%

  23. Sammie Grande November 22, 2017

    christina can sing live! thats the reason why has Ciara rolled her eyes, im pretty sure about that!

  24. Sammie Grande November 22, 2017

    xtina can sing live! thats the reason why has Ciara rolled up her eyes, im pretty sure about that!
