I thought the performance was okay, but it felt kind of..unrehearsed? Tine started off really well, but Demi was all over the place and her vocals were just not there. I felt like they misguided each other and eventually it all ended up being kinda messy. I hope it was their last live performance together, cause just like in a studio recording, Demi doesn’t bring anything to the table.

Christina's voice is in spectacular condition. She sounds better than ever. Its just mesmerizing to hear how rich her tone is.

The performance is a no tho. It was messy.

I enjoyed the performance. The camera crew doesn't know how to film elaborated performances, kept zooming in when i wanted to see everything that was going on, had it zoom out when i was supposed to go close X's face, it happened a bit with janet too, i wanted to see her dancing and they kept filming from the waist up, as if Janet was an arm dancer, lol no, girl knows how to move her feet.

The shade of it all to have bruno give janet the award, i know that it's because he is a fan and knows jimmy jam and terry lewis but let's be honest, he has taken JT's spot as the prince of pop and he is asked to give janet the award? Hahahha. Not a JT hater but it was kind of funny. Hehe.

Christina actually sounded amazing. I agree the last chorus got messy. I feel for Demi tho. Her nerves got the best of her. She must’ve felt so intimidated and had her own XtinE Super Bowl Moment :rip:

I think a lot of it has to do with Christina finally recording songs that are comfortable to hit in her range and I’m glad she realized it’s for the best. She sounded fucking amazing. Demi tho...

The thing that is annoying to me is that there are people out there who will dislike Christina no matter what she does because she will never be their cup of tea musically/stylistically. Even here a lot of the fans continue to make remarks about vocal stylistic choices that she purposely makes. Just get off the Christina train if you aren’t on board with her style because it’s not changing. She prefers to do certain things with her voice and those things won’t change. That’s what makes her an artist. I don’t know what people expect at this point really.
Come the fuck through👏🏽👏🏽💟

I thought she was lipping... Until I saw how she paused and changed some chords. I was like... How does she even do that?!?!?!

Xtina sounded great. Demi not so much, I think she was very nervous. Overall a very powerful performance.

Seriously. Where the fuck did they come from? I couldn't stop laughing during their performance. Maybe I'm just too old but I don't get it.

Performance was OK. X blows Dumi out of the water no doubt. It seemed messy and unrehearsed, which is too bad. Perhaps it was just nerves.

Just checked they are all from 20-26 years old in the group. So racist of you to assume he’s 15 just because he’s Asian.

The one you're specifically talking about in that video is the youngest member and he's 20. 21 in September. The other guys are 22+.
