While I agree with u .... LTBL and CHUD are hardly considered "the hits".


It always bothers me when people say CHUD wasn’t a hit. It was on her most popular album to date, had a video, and is recognized as having forward thinking ideas that helped shape modern feminism not only in the industry but also the world. She said things that other women were afraid to say in songs. I feel CHUD is one of her most important songs to date. It’s almost insulting to not recognize it’s importance. Without CHUD there wouldn’t be many of the ideas presented in pop music today.


I'd say Dirrty is the song and video you're thinking of...

Christina and her team didn't even include this song in her greatest hits compilation. Its not even top 10 in a list of her best songs...

It wasnt a hit. Its not remembered. She doesnt even sing it. The background singers take over while her and her backup dancers just jump around like fools. Why hasnt she been asked what her obsession is with that song and why she refuses to perform Your Body her first single of Lotus. Can Andy Cohen ask her? Ugh it irks me so damn much.

Why she doesn't just sing it is what I don't understand. I like the song but all we ever get in it is "woooohohhohhoooaa"

Because Your Body is one of her worst songs and LTBL is empowering.

Not sure what Dirrty has to do with our discussion about CHUD. Dirrty while a great song does not explore the themes that CHUD does. A list of best songs is subjective. Just like the word “hit”. A song like CHUD that has had impact while also sounding fresh and relevant today seems like a hit to me. Christina has had many hits. That’s why she’s a legend. There’s a reason why CHUD is included in her setlist. I don’t understand how people whine about everything she does while claiming to be fans.

Here's a LQ video of the full performance that I found:

CommercialTina did not strike tonight, but she slayed the vocals in the cold! Love it or hate it, she sticks to her zero fucks mantra and does things her way regardless if it'll sit well with GP and locals.

She looked incredible and she sounded fine but I wish the medley was more clean... it came off like a mess... and those new renditions of her old songs was NOT IT!
 

Agreed with EVERYTHING here
Them mixes were just not working for such SHORT medleys
People can't recognize them from the originals 
Everything else was great

The vocals were a lil rough a couple time (ANOM mostly) but she did really good I think... And she looked amazing too.

But I'm tired of medley of her old hits... There is nothing exciting about them anymore. Now my hopes are all on the Grammy Awards (if she performs, I'd love something from Liberation. No tribute either!).

You've already said your piece about her song choices in another thread. People replied to you. Move on. 
Why didnt she promote liberation? Who the hell is handling all this shit. Losers. They should pay us to handle everything since we have her best interest at heart. Her vocals were good but her performing let there be love pisses me off to no end. Why does she insist on performing that garbage of a song?!

 
Shes beens resting and she has the nerve to perform let there be love? The tired ass hookup song that she tries to pass of as a lgbt acceptance anthem and it irks my ass off. Yes im nad bitch. Im very mad and this is some bullshit

Have you ever been outside when it's cold, and have you ever tried breathing through your mouth? And how did that feel? And now imagine that Christina has not only breathe but also sing in these conditions.

I agree with the OP tbh

As I've said before, she seems to have come to see it as her default "party song", and she feels obliged to perform it every time she wants to generate a party atmosphere ala NYE. But I don't get her logic there, because she has heaps of other party songs in her discography that can substitute in for it.

The other reason is that it has a pro-LGBT message and a generic campiness to it that I think she thinks makes it perfect for her target demographic. But the thing is, "generic campiness" isn't the sort of thing Fighters generally look for when they stan Xtina. That's more of a Britbot stan thing. Our fandom isn't about squealing over anything that s campy or kitsch. We stan vocals and talent and artistry. LTBL is okay but to me it feels like a song by another artist.
