Kelly Rowland Rocks Sydney With ‘Can’t Nobody,’ ‘Bootylicious,’ & More Despite Fan Protest To Pull Out [Video]

Published: Saturday 19th Oct 2019 by Rashad

With career-spanning hits in tow, Kelly Rowland rocked Sydney with a performance at The Everest 2019 on Saturday (October 19).

Drawing a crowd of thousands who were also on hand for the annual Royal Randwick Races, the ‘Kisses Down Low’ singer headed Down Under donning a form-fitting black leotard as she cranked out her solo songs ‘Like This,’ ‘Commander,’ ‘When Love Takes Over,’ and even Destiny’s Child hits ‘Bootylicious,’ ‘Independent Women,’ and more.

While concertgoers took to Twitter in droves to praise Rowland for her show-stopping performance, the outing was greeted with controversy from animal rights advocates who have fought to increase awareness of the event’s reported mistreatment of horses.  After successfully encouraging Pop megastar Taylor Swift to pull out of performing at Australia’s Melbourne Cup, activists and fans turned to Kelly to follow suit.

Using the hashtag #PullASwifty, ‘The Voice Australia’ judge was swarmed by tweets from fans suggesting she step down from the appearance – even going as far as creating a petition to discourage her participation (click here to view).

While their efforts proved futile, many are hoping the concert served as a “warm up” for the diva to showcase some of her long-promised new music.  Click here to read her latest comments on the elusive LP.

    Ain’t nobody waiting on, checking for or talking of a new album from Kelly. Except the two little old black women in their mid-40s gossiping outside the school gates while waiting for their kids and reminiscing on Destiny’s Child back in the 90s. These two old broads still won’t buy no album and will have forgotten all about it once those kids come running through the school gates and they go back to their monotonous daily lives.

      Uhm… no! Cause that would make it seem like Camila is the Beyonce. But Camila ain’t s***. Commercial success doesn’t equate talent. You can boast about her sales all you want. But you know her Vocal ability is lackluster. She can’t dance. How much of her songs is she really writing? Her jawline and facial structure makes the Crimon chin shake in his spanks. He lies awake at night wondering if she’s coming for his title.

      Nothing sad about making millions of dollars & having millions of fans that still adore you and your music. What’s sad is that one ride or die friend you think you have that is secretly wishing you continue to fail

    Well I’m waiting on the new music

    Ummm I hear that she’s a big deal in Australia and has been since her first solo album so why is her set so barebones? Why does she go harder performing as a guest at Beyoncé’s events than her own headlining shows?

      This is so true

      When performing alongside Beyonce kelly is amazing. When alone, she is super hit or miss…mostly miss

        Kelly is used to play second fiddle and being in the background. Destiny’s Child did a number on her self esteem. Even Michelle is more consistent and confident .

    It’s super sad th hat after all this time, Kelly still does not have a stage presence. Kelly still look like she’s promoting “Ms. Kelly”. The dancers, the look, the stage, the setlist…ots all late. As I stated with Beyonce, if you’re going to do a DC medley, at least with up the songs every now and then.

    As someone else stated, Kelly is an outstanding performer when she performs with Beyonce to the point where you can see Beyonce flaws. Kelly is also good doing tributes, hell, even on The Voice she great performing with the artist and co host. It’s her alone and performing her own music that’s boring as s***, thstbwhy she could never headline a tour, not even at The House of Blues. Kelly wants people to stop saying she’s “2nd Best” to Beyonce but wants to continue to half ass her passion and career…MAKE IT MAKE SINCE!

    Everytime Kelly performs solo it should leave no wonder why Beyonce became the star. Kelly only shines with the group. Over the years Michelle has even become the better of the two vocally. I mean this was pitiful to watch. She’s not that much better than 2007 Kelly Rowland.she never grew from that era. From the way she releases music to the way she performs. It’s like she’s stuck in 2007. I wonder what she’s going to do in the next 10 years. Beyonce doesn’t have the commercial power she used to have. They better do a reunion before the interest is gone aside from streaming services and social media.

      I actually agree
