I think if we took out the messy Demi vocals this could've been a top 3 of all time performance. I really loved the start visuals and got Goosebumps when I realized there were women playing the guards too, the message in the song and visuals that accompanied it were so strong and suble. I loved the staging and overall direction of all of this. I love that it will be so easy to recreate on tour. Minimal but BIG IMPACT.

Also felt bad for all those singers. Not a single one (maybe Kelly, but Christina would KO her in 3 seconds flat) could hold a candle to Christina.

Can we talk about how nostalgic this award show felt? This is the first time where there is such a rift in the transition of music from the previous generation to now. Like eveyone def felt crazy old last night. We went from Legends and Icons across multiple decades to flash in the pan one hit in and you're out "artists". It's such a miserable state. We NEED more Christina and even Kelly! Bring back the legends.

Loved the performance and i thought X sounded amazing! My one criticism would be the creative direction. I think for a song like FIL especially the world performance debut, they should’ve dropped the soldiers, kept the backdrop and added a live band and background singers.

I think if they, at least, had backup singers they would have been able to do the call and response ad-libs while the backup singers kept up with the chorus as the song goes into the bridge and key change.

Other than that, I loved it.

So gross that it's literally just gay men saying who they think looks better. :ziggy: Also the fact that X's photo is from like 2006 and Britney's is from like 2001. :rip: Cute comparison.

It's a shame Demi hasn't done any TV or radio interviews this past week or two, I wanted to hear her stan for Xtina and talk about meeting her for the first time. :tellmemore:

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.

One of my all time favourite performances of hers - but are you low key shading FIL?
Yes. I wish Xtina would delivery this quality on a consistent basis. She is who she is so thats where my expectations of her lay but this performance, 10 years later shows, me what she can but chooses not to do.
TBH I dont find it shady to want Xtina to sing smart, in a way that highlights her voice, in a way where she can she can delivery live without worry about dodging notes, because she developed an arrangement that works for her. But like I said I
ve accepted that Rattina is not going to be who I want her to be , unless she gets rid of Ratt

Regrets collect like old friends / Here to relive your darkest moments
I can see no way, I can see no way / And all of the ghouls come out to play
And every demon wants his pound of flesh / But I like to keep some things to myself
I like to keep my issues strong / It's always darkest before the dawn

If your mind determined that my post about her vocal arrangements = her being thin, you might want to re-evaliate your own thoughts and not project them onto me.

So what exactly does Matt have to do with her vocal arrangements? What does he hold her back from doing?

GREATNESS, HER FULL POTENTIAL. INSPIRATION

Xtina's music with Jordan vs Xtina's music with Ratt - Name one song she made about Ratt?

Since Ratt we got two first singles about random Sex. Lotus 's quality was what it was. She didn't perform YB, her career with Ratt vs her career with Jordan.

Even Liberation is about her being unhappy and wanting to break free.

You reached and missed.

So the player is basically hating on everything at this point. Blatantly said he doesn't like the songs she has released and doesn't like the way she sings.

Ban her!
