    Thoughts?

    • MmmHmm

      WHY IS NICKI LOOKING LIKE A MESS AGAIN!? AND WHY IN THE WORLD IS SHE LIP SYNCHING W/ A CHOIR IN THE BACKGROUND?! AND SHEs SUPPOSE TO BE JUDGING PEOPLE FOR THEIR SINGING ABILITIES WHEN SHE JUST LIP SINCHED THIS TRASH?! #GARBAGE

        Shut up! You make nada sense. You just wanna open ya mouth.

        • MmmHmm

          SAYS THE BARB WHO CAN’T HANDLE THE TRUTH!

        • BlairWaldorf2013

          I was just sitting here like why does Onika (I’m can’t give her Nicki anymore) look like the cloud from the Jimmy Dean Sausage commercial with the sun gives the cloud a breakfast sandwich and it goes from being sad to floating away. I mean…and the BEST part is the lady from the choir at the end ACTUALLY singing. Also, call her the PinkPrint…in the words of Pattilahelle’s Beyonce voice “I had to check my husband’s pulse cause I’m nobody’s widow” SMH

        • Nelz91

          I’m a dude #1, #2 I’m not a barb or “ken barb” I just hop on here to see the nonsense you guys talk about Nicki. It just proves my point ya just wanna talk. Back to balancing my stocks you’re not important

        • ML

          Gurl, you stay being the first to post about Nicki. You know you been a fan. But you didn’t come for her rapping just her singing…ok, there’s growth there on your part. I’ll give you that.

      One word: PINK! This woman seriously does not get enough credit. An actual performance!! By far the best performance of the night.
      Kelly Clarkson sounded great.

    • Kayla

      Pink is the freaking truth!!!!

    • Unbothered

      P!nk was AMAAAAZING. Christina was god awful.

    • Tim

      Pink is just impeccable. A true ARTIST. Lots of people out now are wonderful singers but she is an all around artist who is ACTUALLY creative and brings something new and different everytime.

      Kelly is just a great singer. So effortless and easy for her to sing throughout her range.

      Christina, the performance concept of her medley was great but her wardrobe choice are starting to become recycled and that voice NEEDS to be recycled cause lord knows its been overused in all the wrong ways.

    • People do standing ovations to just anything these days.

    • mbasd

      pink doesnt get the credit she deserves in pop music smh. as for that xtina performance, a damn mess. her voice is on its last legs, her screaming and yelling dont even come out with cracking.

    • Tay

      PINK PINK AND MORE PINK. Her performance was AMAZING. This was a good show overall better than what l expect it to be. Congrats to the winners and all the performers last night.

    • Ugh

      Can i just say that i thoroughly enjoyed that Psy performance. When MC Hammer came out I wanted to jump out the chair!

      Loved Pink and Kesha’s performances as well

    • Ashward

      Hmmmm – Justin Bieber was the biggest surprise. He KILLED that dance routine. His acoustic at the beginning wasnt too bad either. Props.

    • Anna

      i’m v impressed @ Bieber’s performance although he sounds slighty limited vocally at some parts of his performances. He improved his dancing

    • WonderLand19

      Pink, Chris, Psy, Nicki and Carrie were all good. Christina was REALLY BAD! Its sad how bad her voice has become.

    • theman

      Pink, was superb…….. Carrie was amazing. Kelly did great. Xtina did good. Psy and Hammer were awesome. Usher did great.

    • michael

      Christina Aguilera was such a disappointment. She was incredible on the “sandy” tribute. She killed beautiful. But what happen here…..her voice as horrid. she looked a mess (it’s evident they thinned her out in the “body” video because she is still huge). But the biggest disappointment is she BOAST on her vocal skills but she had none. Usher and this lipsinging at 35 years old, ok usher just do us a favor and stand still and sing like we know u can. PINK was a revelation as usual. She is just under-rated. Nicki Minji’s two mintues of fame is OVA. Plastic Plastic Plastic and fake.
