    Mariah, Madonna, Cardi and Paula…the rest you can skip!!!

    • Lil Jay May 1, 2019

      Agreed…Madonna, Mariah and Paula saving the night!

      • Theelusive1 on IG May 1, 2019

        MARIAH ?????

    • Jasmine May 1, 2019

      Ciara should have used the opportunity to show out and showcase a couple songs from her new album. The song she performed is not hit or future hit so it was a waste. Level Up would have been better. I feel bad for her. It’s like she is locked in 2007 and can’t seem to find hit success the past decade. Also, her live performances could be more entertaining. This was more of a lazy performance for her.

      • P May 2, 2019

        The performance was a showstopper. Plus the song is rising on iTunes.

      • Danny Bey May 2, 2019

        You’re smoking d**k. Nothing you said made sense or was accurate.

    • CHINA May 2, 2019

      Mariah was Awesome, Arianna was ok, That Gospel lady was really good not sure of the song but she brought a vibe

    • Jane May 2, 2019

      Paula, Mariah, Madonna and BTS from Korea. I loved this year BBMAs.

    • Wordonthestreet May 2, 2019

      YOu all must be delusional because this was a fest for the mediocre! OMG BORING and who Really still cares about AMAs in 2019??? LOL! Girl bye

  2. Rita May 1, 2019

    Paula Abdul is back!!!! OMG!

  3. Fancy BISH May 1, 2019

    Let me say it…Maluma is fine AF ? Face, thighs, booty lol…hunnie, he’s a SNACK. I’ll be back with my reviews of the performers later ??

    • I love Big Black C** May 1, 2019

      I know right. He’s so yummy! That’s my papi chulo.

  4. dee May 1, 2019

    Madonna was a complete mess. Mariah was boring as usual with non existent vocals.

    • Latisya May 1, 2019

      Uncultured millennial….go and stan for Ariana. 🙁

  5. Seth May 1, 2019

    Madonna for spectacle and Mariah for vocals…the rest wasn’t worth watching. The middle aged 90s divas are still better than any of the “kids”

    • Erica May 1, 2019

      Sis what vocals the delusion be so real

    • SMH May 2, 2019

      This is true. While I wasn’t that impressed by Madonna, Mariah or Paula’s performances, they were still a hundred times better than any of the other performances.

  6. Ropeburn May 1, 2019

    Mariah definitely deserved that award but my Gawd, her performance was terrible! Out of breath and voice crackin all over the place!

    • Theman May 1, 2019

      Nope she was good overall. She was nervous and had a few botches. But you reaching.

      • Jasmine May 1, 2019

        That is how she always sounds though. Her voice is better suited for studio and concerts than short live performances. In the studio she can perfect it. On tour, she sounds the same but the audience appreciates her overall voice because of the wonderful notes she hits during the total performance despite the missed notes. Here her voice sounded good to me (despite the missed notes) and the ones not liking her performance are not appreciative of the wonderful high notes she hit live. I wish she moved more on stage though. If you are going to just stand there and just waive your hand your voice better be flawless like Tamela Mann and MAriah’s voice has flaws.

      • JOHNVIDAL May 2, 2019

        She needsto move more. Celine is a super performer compared to her. It´s a pity because Mariah has showed signs sometimes that she could do better. For example her 2016 European tour was so good. Her voice was in better shape than it has been in 5 years and she moved a lot (for her standards). I think it´s her damn weight.

    • Boytoy1814 May 2, 2019

      Can’t say Mariah was lip syncing. The missed
      notes let you know she’s singing live. I enjoyed her performance

  7. IG: mixedboy May 1, 2019

    Well deserved Mariah ?

  8. Latisya May 1, 2019

    Legendary queens Madonna and Mariah Carey showing the ageist f**** and this s***** generation of so-called artists how it’s f****** done!!!! ??????????

    • Phyl May 1, 2019


    • Boytoy1814 May 2, 2019

      U betta testify!?????

  9. Divas Are Back May 1, 2019

    Good to see these legends like Mariah, Madonna, Paula Abdul are making a comeback.

  10. Beam Me Up Scotty May 1, 2019

    They should’ve let someone from a singing competition sing in place of Mariah Carey because she sounded horrible.

    • Fed Up With A Mess May 1, 2019

      A troll comment like this makes this blog quiet.
      Go and talk to your shrink….

      • Beam Me Up Scotty May 1, 2019

        Go clean your ears out.

  11. SMH May 1, 2019

    Honestly I wasn’t impressed by anyone’s performance.

  12. Erica May 1, 2019

    Ohh Mariah the struggle was real

  13. eric May 1, 2019

    I don’t know what Madonna does to stay in shape, but you would never guess her age the way she moves and works the stage. Artists half her age can’t even do it like her; she makes them look pathetic.

    • eric May 1, 2019

      Nick let his brother outsing him on his own song. Yikes.

      Khalid’s songs were good, but he needed more help.

      Daydream is the first album I ever owned. Mariah will always be my favorite even when she struggles.

    • Phyl May 1, 2019

      Thank you Eric….you are so correct!

  14. Meme May 1, 2019

    WHEW Chile Mariah was a devastating. She was so off beat and off tone. Chile.

    • Yup May 2, 2019

      I’m guessing you didn’t wipe your ass this morning.

    • LB May 2, 2019

      Coming from a Rihanna fan… Can’t say I’ve ever heard Rihanna on beat EVER.

  15. TruthTea May 1, 2019

    :sips truth tea:
    Did we see the same Madonna performance? It’s not even about the hate, it was a mess, poorly staged, and the song sound like an attempt to jump on the LatinX crossover train without Bieber/Little Mix/Beyonce, etc. but 3 years too late.

    It’s impressive that Madonna can still slay at her age — better than the other tired performances —, but did we hear she dropped $2-3 million on those computer animations for this performance? This was not the song for her to slay, should have saved those coins for a good song/bop.

    • Lanafan1 May 2, 2019

      Madonna has done the Latin crossover since the beginning of her career. Wtf are you talking about?

      • Always true May 2, 2019

        Right just ignorance taking its always funny to hear from people that have no idea about music or artist and what they have done. Honey Madonna has been dipping in the latin pool in more way than one before it was a trend. Get into it.

  16. Ty May 2, 2019

    Ciara needs to give it up with that song wasted opportunity, Madonna looks good but for 5 million wasn’t really spectacular or anything memorable her dude hot though!! Mariah Carey looks good. Hasley looked a mess so did Kelly Clarkson the rest it’s whatever. It’s hard to believe Taylor swift is almost in her 30s her look and sound is immature.

  17. Lanafan1 May 2, 2019

    Everyone did a great job. Except Halsey and that country band!

  18. JaylaTooBad May 2, 2019

    Ciara slayed per usual no one served a performance like Ciara and y’all know that s*** give a b**** credit when is due hating ass h***!!

  19. QueenNickiMinaj May 2, 2019

    Madonna is good!!!
    Mariah is awesome!!!
    Maluma is my crush!!!
    Taylor Swift has cute performance with the handsome Panic at the disco guy

    Cardi B? I might have to pass on that one

  20. Gavin G May 2, 2019

    Ciara did awesome to me! She really has grown. At this point if you don’t like her, you are a hater and a miserable a** h** like NeNe!

    • Always true May 2, 2019

      It would of been nice if she would of gave us a little taste of the vibe that the video was giving us. That pant suit from 2000 was horrible and her weave looked horrible. She needs new management because that performance was not awesome you know that. I’m a Ciara fan but that was horrendous. She has not grown and that is why her career is where it is. Don’t be a fan that settles for mediocre but instead one that encourages your artist to grow and give 110%

  21. Always true May 2, 2019

    Oh my what a disappointment this show was. Kelly was fun but definitely couldn’t top her self from last year. Performance wise I no longer am a fan of Khalid ( WTF? he cant sing live or pronounce his words) Halsey- Pink did it better, STOP!!. It seems the veteran performers definitely proved that these days they put anyone out there with or without talent. I hope the pendulum swings back one day where we aren’t over saturated but instead given true talents that will stand the test of time and put out music with meaning that will resonate with us years to come.

  22. smh May 2, 2019

    Ciara wants to be Janet and Michael Jackson so bad. smh Same old dancing.

  23. Ariana Grande May 2, 2019

    beautiful gowns

  24. David May 2, 2019

    Jonas brotherds, Taylor Swift, Paula were my favourite performances of the night.

  25. S.U.P.E.R.S.T.A.R.!. May 2, 2019

    Ciara – Puh-lease!
