    Ciara: best performance of the night!!! She gave us sèx, body, fashion, POW marks and most importantly- choreography!!! Slay Cici!!

    • China October 10, 2018

      Cardi was Exotic, Fun and Alive. Ciara was good. Mariah girl: LISTEN TO YOUR LAMBS are you Medicated? You old performances you HAD Energy? Live vocals? Passion. You dead in the Eyes boo. You stand there and give STRAIN face BUT YOUR NOT SINGING. Gladys would NEVER. Aretha would NEVER. Whitney would NEVER. DEAR Mariah and Celine: if you CLAIM to be singers….why don’t you Sing fully live anymore? If you cant hit the notes RETIRE. PLEASE RETIRE and STOP DISAPPOINTING THE 7 FANS/STANS YOU HAVE LEFT. JENNIFER LOPEZ: please continue to have ASHANTI do your vocals, your horrible.

        China go back to China, Mariah doesn’t have to flip her p***y all over the stage, she’s already said she’s not a dancer it’s not her thing, she has a God given gift and that’s the bottom line. Her voice is beautiful and her performance was elegant. Mariah is Mariah and she’s a legend, stop comparing boo!

  2. Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine🙋🏿‍♀️💁🏿‍♀️B October 9, 2018

    Cardi has the crowd on their feet the whole time. She’s a great performer to be so early on. Them stripping credentials are coming in handy okurrrrrr. You knew when she kicked that leg up she was bout to serve

    • King of King’s October 9, 2018

      Of course a stripper knows how to perform, so technically she’s not early on cuz she used to be up there dancing b*** ass named for dollar bills. Hell if u put Blac chyna up there & give her a big budget & a mic I bet she’ll kill it too, & the crowd was standing up for most of the uptemp performances

      • Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine🙋🏿‍♀️💁🏿‍♀️B October 9, 2018

        Well at least you know, and admit that cardi KILLED it. That’s all that needs to be acknowledged. Well and the fact that the ENTIRE LIVE crowd (not prerecorded performances with an audience full of Stan’s) was on their feet the whole time entire and cardi didn’t just walk back and forth across the stage playing in her hair lip syncing to a prerecorded track. She actually performed and used the stage.

      • King of King’s October 9, 2018

        😂lmao I ain’t said she killed s*** & 🙄that was one damn performance go watch her anaconda performance @ the VMAs b**** with a live audience on they damn feet h**. & Cardis mic was off that’s why she ain’t say s*** or any of them retarded sound she be making when it was over 😴

      • Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine🙋🏿‍♀️💁🏿‍♀️B October 9, 2018

        You said what you said, girl. Which was “she’s an ex stripper even black China would kill it “… acknowledging, along with the standing audience, that she killed it. And I agree, she did kill it. Ciara toooo

    • Rosemary R. Peters October 10, 2018

      Since I started with my online business, I earn $80 every 60minutes. It sounds unbelievable but you won’t forgive yourself if you don’t check it out. Learn more about it here…….. w­w­w.W­i­c­3­.­c­om

  3. Shady J October 9, 2018

    Ciara best performance

  4. Keith October 9, 2018

    Cardi had the staging
    Ciara had the choreography; stole JLO’s thunder
    Carrie Underwood had the voice

    Dua Lipa, Camilla, Post Malone – pure garbage
    Mariah has the stage presence of a cement block

    Tracee – excellent opening; wardrobe

    • Stan Police October 9, 2018

      What a day when J-Lo outsang Mariah! LMFAO It’s true!!!! I hate to say it, but Mariah was a cement block like you said- and still got outsung by J-Lo. Ciara definitely took J-Lo dance thunder tho. LOL

      • Theman October 10, 2018

        Mariah sounded way better than JLo. MC ain’t a performer. Just as those performers ain’t singers. So sit down with that. Even though MC should move around slot more.

      • Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine🙋🏿‍♀️💁🏿‍♀️B October 10, 2018

        @theman Mariah’s lipped tracked sounded better than j.los lipped track but j.lo at least performed. We love MC but she stood there and lipped the whole performance and the camera panned out at most of the high parts. She’s just not a POW live vocalist anymore unless she sings low jazzy stuff which she refuses to do

  5. #TeamTinashe Stan October 9, 2018

    Ciara did THAT!
    Nice job Cici!

    “Level Up” deserves at least top 30 chart position on BB 100.

  6. Wordonthestreet October 9, 2018

    Ummm All performances were BORING, stage Cheap and the audio was horrid… Just a Terrible subpar SMH

  7. #TeamTinashe Stan October 9, 2018

    Mariah Carey sounds good…. but I couldn’t take the gay action going on behind her smh

    • Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine🙋🏿‍♀️💁🏿‍♀️B October 9, 2018

      I thought it was very contemporary dance rather than gay.. ballet-Esau’s. I thought it was a nice switch up to her usual b-boy, boy toy, hip hop dancer thing.

    • Shaquiiii October 10, 2018

      It’s called contemporary dance. Educate yourself fool.

    • Killer_Lamb October 10, 2018

      F**k you

  8. eric October 9, 2018

    I’m disappointed that Mariah wasn’t able to take care of her voice and sing a simple low range song live. I thought she had given up the days of lip-syncing. My favorite performance was J.Lo. “Limitless” is nice! Camila showed that not every song is right for her voice. It was a good attempt though.

    • The one October 9, 2018

      J.Lo does nothing but lip sync so you lose all credibility attempting to critique Mariah. LoL

  9. Slave4u October 9, 2018

    Ciara killed it 🔥🔥🔥 !!! Go Cardi 💃🏻💃🏻💃🏻

  10. The one October 9, 2018

    Mariah was stunning and did great!!

  11. FAF October 9, 2018

    Ci ate!! The show started and ended with her

  12. DV22 October 9, 2018


    • S.U.P.E.R.S.T.A.R.!. October 9, 2018

      @DV22 – Lies.

  13. King of King’s October 9, 2018

    🧐Ciara did more dancing then actually singing, JLO & Mariah have the same range nowadays sadly smh & it appears Cardi was lipping her performance & that leg trick looks mighty familiar that other ppl dragged somebody else for @ the BET awards

    • Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine🙋🏿‍♀️💁🏿‍♀️B October 9, 2018

      Only one rapper in history is known for lip synching live performances. And that particular rapper doesn’t get the crowd on their feet the whole performance, unless of course it’s a prerecorded performance in an off-site location full of solely hard core fans- of course.

      • King of King’s October 9, 2018

        😂lmao damn sure ain’t Nicki b**** & that was one pre recorded preference 🧐but didn’t ok girl pre record her BET hip hop awards show performance last week tho 😴

      • Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine🙋🏿‍♀️💁🏿‍♀️B October 9, 2018

        One prerecorded performance, yes. I’m speaking of the prerecorded/lipsync vocals which have been her standard since the beginning. Pay 👏🏿Attention👏🏿 Girl…!

      • FAF October 10, 2018

        You’re f****** stupid BET is known for having the music turned up above the artists they almost always have tech issues

        Nicki has a higher pitched voice therefore u hear her backing vocals sometimes why would she need to lip sync a rap?

  14. DanYiel Iman October 9, 2018

    Ciara gave it too me & Cardi did what she had to do doing her performance!!

  15. Achooo! October 10, 2018

    I don’t like Cardi B flow but no one can deny her stage presence. She can dance, relatable personality, rhythm and good showmanship. Very good!

  16. Theman October 10, 2018

    Mariah was great. But she should move around & put a lil stank on it. This song is meant for her to sing it the way that she did. As for JLo she is beautiful with great dancing. But even her lip syncing was………..

    • Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine🙋🏿‍♀️💁🏿‍♀️B October 10, 2018

      Yes I agree. Mariah’s lip synching so I’m not sure why she won’t at least move around. I guess it’s cause she wants to wear super high heels and a tight ass dress but bïtçh if you’re not singing live you need to give us SOMETHING, sheesh

      • The one October 10, 2018

        But she did sing live.
        She had backing vocals on the chorus which most artist do. You can sing every part depending on how the song is composed.
        Some of y’all know nothing about singing or music and it’s evident by your comments.

      • Jasmine Da Bi Asian NOT Trashmine or TROLLmine🙋🏿‍♀️💁🏿‍♀️B October 10, 2018

        She was not singing live, puhlease. Ur delusional. Mariah looked prim and perfect how she looks I’m her videos, her finger waves were too in sync and the camera zoomed out on majority of the high parts. It was lipped sweety. Not to mention it sounded exactly like the studio track except a slight difference at the end which she re-recorded. You obviously don’t know Mariah, you’re not a real lamb

      • Shaquiiii October 10, 2018

        She definitely sung live. Certain parts of the song weren’t sung when there are lead vocals on the track…why would she lip everything else but them??

  17. JaQuanna Man 4 Lames😂😂😂😂 October 10, 2018


  18. Bravo!! October 10, 2018

    Cardi B performance was way better than her last. When is Bad bunny going to release English album? I love his song “soy peor” and I don’t know what he saying, but he needs to hurry up and drop an American album. My Hispanic homies got me on bad bunny and I love him now..

  19. Lupita October 10, 2018

    Taylor ruled the show! Mariah was great too!

  20. Shaquiiii October 10, 2018

    Mariah did NOT lip. Why do people keep saying that? She even stopped singing in certain parts eg 0.33-0.35, where on the studio track she sings “I yearn to touch you more and more”…why would she not lip that too? and again at 0.46-0.49 “I don’t want to play this wrong”…You can’t handle the fact that she sounds good in this register.

  21. The truth October 10, 2018

    Wow Cardi’s stage presence is good better than Nicki ever was

  22. Bravo!! October 10, 2018

    I understand j.lo more of a dancer than a singer, but her voice has grown. She sounded good like back in the day Selena Quintanilla movie day. I’m sorry to say, but she sounded better than Mariah Carey

    • Moe October 10, 2018

      Cant agree more

    • Theman October 10, 2018

      JLo lipped & what she lipped was off key. Two, she didn’t sound anywhere near better than Mariah.

  23. Moe October 10, 2018

    Well the best performance goes to cardi b for sure , ciara served as well .Jlo even if she isnt dancing she kills that stage . The rest is garbage

  24. G7Pat October 10, 2018

    Mariah and jlo lipped just standing there but yall comin for cici. Must b shook! She slayed

  25. Yan October 10, 2018

    J.lo brought the vocals. Ya’ll gotta respect an artist that develops themselves like she did. A true icon.

  26. No name October 10, 2018

    Cardi the best performance hands down and the worst was Mariah
    It was awful and lifeless

    • JaQuanna Man 4 Lames😂😂😂😂 October 10, 2018

      Lies that h** put up her leg like she was still at the strip club that ain’t performing. CIARA took the night BEST performance hands down!!!

      • No name October 10, 2018

        Last time I checked
        I am entitled to my own opinions
        U don’t have to agree but that doesn’t not give you the right to call me a lier….
        Who??? all this hype and media coverage and she’s still a FLOP
        They hype her so damn much, shoving her down our throats as the next Janet lol the delusion

  27. S.U.P.E.R.S.T.A.R.!. October 10, 2018

    Mariah did a fantastic job and she looked great. Thank God I listen and state my opinions based on what I hear, see and process with my beautiful mind.
