I'm thinking this might be the only time Demi appears in a live version of the song. I don't think Demi will make any guest appearances on the Liberation tour so I can't see when else she'll pop up. Unless maybe they perform it on a late night talk show or something.

I think they will have one more major performance coming. Not sure when, but it would be weird if they didn't perform it again given that it's the first single. And then of course if it's nominated for a Grammy :susp:

The persons who worked on CNN Hero, vocal and music arrangement need have a permanent job with Xtina on all performances and albums. Here she showed mastery of her voice and highlighted her abilities.

I imagine during album release week (not sure what Demi's touring schedule is like around that time), or at least a cute prerecorded Vevo stripped performance [mention]London.[/mention] Demi is quite self aware and probably would want a chance at redemption. She can hit those notes like their nothing on her own songs live, so I think it was a combo of nerves + lack of rehearsal time. Christina could crash one of Demi's summer tour dates also if she plans on promoting overseas.

Love the look, love the performance!!!!! :shook: :shook: :shook:

Demi fucked it up a bit..... but on the other hand.... she was super nervous and that is ok.... so..... next time she will do it better!
And Christina.... my gosh I missed this girl so much!! SIe truly had no fucks to give the last years.... her voice was so "damaged" und untrained!

But now.... wow!!!! Great!!

I also like this covered up style!! No more MC-Clothes and messy butt-injections! :fan: :love: :love: :love: :love:

Just saw the performance.
Wow, Christina's tone is better than ever.

The backing vocals in the first part were extremely loud. Christina really had to change it up to be heard.
Demi was so nervous. She screwed up pretty much right away but recovered well until the high note. She looked so disappointed with herself. Really looked like Christina tried to get her back into it after that.

Hope these ladies will find the time to perform together again in the future.

I like the first part but they bombed the bridge. They should’ve just had a nice back drop not the stupid dancers.

I don't like the soldiers. It distracted the performance.

True, they're usually better performers, trained to perfection. But music wise? Kpop is twice as shitty as western pop

I thought it was a great performance!! Vocals for days!! No one else's vocals can compare to Christina's! Demi did pretty well for the big pressure of first time performing with one of the best vocalists of all time who is her longtime idol.

And about BTS, I'm Asian and love some kpop, but I don't understand the BTS hype at all. They are so fugly and their whispery vocals suck. I just don't get it and never will.

The red carpet look was great and so was the performance look. She sounded great until the key change, after it though It got messy. They should have practiced that more :O

Glad she walked the red carpet and sat during the show. I feel like she hasn't walked a red carpet for an award show since the 2013 AMAs and sat during a show since the 2006 VMAS,

We saw her for a brief second in the corner of the screen applauding for Khalid, when he stood up to pick up his award. She probably left sometime during the first commercial break.
