    Usher has no idea what to wear anymore, and his choreography needs to be revamped. Ariana sounded good. I want to see a full on Janet type of dance routine from Doja; the potential is clearly there.

      What hugely successful artist have you ever styled, produced and choreographed for?? How many number one songs and albums have you had in your successful music career?? You negative nancy’s and wanna be critics in these comments are sad and ridiculous.

        Being a personal stylist is not a prerequisite for having an opinion on what looks good, just as I’m sure you understand that one doesn’t have to be a producer to give an opinion on a song. Newsflash: This is a blog that welcomes feedback and critique that you might not always agree with. If you’re sensitive to that, you might want to stay out of the comment section.

        The funny thing is you fools opinions are just like your assssholes…always shitttty. Your opinions always come from a negative standpoint that is usually false. Which just make your opinions ignorant hate.

      Michael Jackson had the same classic choreography to all his classic songs and videos up until the preparation for his last concerts. Janet Jackson still does the same classic choreography to all her classic songs and videos. James Brown did the same classic dance moves up until his last live performance. Carry on tho

      • eric May 28, 2021

        Are you kidding? Michael was always changing it up the same way Janet does by adding new dance breaks and remixes with new choreo.

      • Wtf May 28, 2021

        NOT TRUE. You can easily go on YouTube and look at any Michael Jackson concerts from 80’s, 90’s and up until his rehearsals in 09. He’s doing the same signature dance routines and moves to Billie Jean, Beat It, Smooth Criminal, Human Nature and so on. His TRUE fans even know what, when and which dance moves are coming.

      • Wtf May 28, 2021

        Speaking of remixing dance routines Usher actually did switch up his moves. Those Yeah routine moves were not the classic routine from the video and past concerts. I guess haters won’t acknowledge that tho

    Usher is 42 years old and is in the fourth decade of his career but is still actually singing and dancing live better than these younger and new artist.

    • PinotNoir May 28, 2021

      A 42-year-old singer would have to have debuted while his umbilical cord was being cut to be in his 4th career decade. Usher’s in the 3rd decade if you count his scrapped earliest album at 10, in his 2nd since his debut at 15.

      • 90’s kid May 28, 2021

        Are you slow?? He released two albums in the 90’s, he released three albums in the 00’s and he released three albums in the 10’s. That’s three decades and the 20’s is his fourth decade.

  3. Why May 28, 2021

    The Weekend is the definition of a studio singer. His live vocals are seriously horrid.

    • PinotNoir May 28, 2021

      Must need “special” mics to pick up the “nuances” in his tiny voice. . .à la Mariah, indeed.

  4. Laura May 28, 2021

    Ariana sounded amazing! Her vocals were on point. The Weeknd sounded…well average he doesn’t do much.

  5. Kenneth May 28, 2021

    Overall Bruno, H.E.R sounded great for her tribute to Elton John. Ariana with The Weeknd and Doja did great.
