It was a solid performance. I was thoroughly entertained. Both looked great, loved the production value and Xtina sounded wonderful. However it got really messy after the key change and all the blame can not be put solely on Demi. Xtina got very shouty too and Demi just lost all confidence. I think with more rehearsal they would have slayed this but overall it was good. I’m pleased and look forward to the video!

P.s the video clips look epic :eek:

Also, I understand that maybe some people only read selective posts and then base their comments on those, but the overwhelming response in here has been positive in every way, with whatever negative comments coming from those criticizing Demi’s part of the performance. That does not mean that the comments were overwhelmingly negative or that this is an exceedingly negative place.

So please, don’t dismiss the whole thing just because you have a point to prove.


THIS THIS THIS!!!!

It's basically...

xtina: *delivers a great performance*
95% of x.red: Xtina was great!! I loved her! She slayed! Demi was kinda messy, but I still liked it!!!
three or four randoms on x.red: i hated it
selective post-readers: OMG EVERYONE IS NEGATIVE STOP RUINING A GREAT MOMENT

Demi doesn’t have musicality like Christina and maybe she got thrown off when Christina was doing adlibs but that’s not Queen’s fault you should know your part even if there’s a tornadoe going awn . But it was good

Yea exactly, seriously, if you sign up to feature on a Christina song you have got to be ready for work and interact with her adlibbing. It's one of Christina's main live vocal signatures. If others can't keep up that's on them. Imagine being surprised by adlibbing from Christina "probably adlibs her everyday breathing patterns just cos she's fierce like that" Aguilera - you'd have to have never seen her perform before. :rip:

IT WAS MORE OF A BTS CONCERT THAN AN AWARD SHOW TBH...
EVERYONE WAS STANNING AND FANCHATTING BTS EVERY TIME. GOT ANNOYING TBH.
XTINA AND DEMI SOUND LIKE GOLD.
THEY WERE THE SECOND MOST CHEERED PERFORMANCE OF THE NIGHT (WHEN U LISTEN TO MY FOOTAGE U CAN HEAR THE AUDIENCE REACT AND CHEER BETTER)
WAS HOPING X PERFORMED ON THE RIGHT STAGE THOUGH, SAW ARIANA ONLY 30 FEET AWAY. BUT I WAS IN FULL AWE AND STAN MODE SO I CAN NOT COMPLAIN ABOUT THE LACK OF DIRECT VIEW TBH!

Rarely run into a post that's read my mind entirely. Pretty much exactly this. It's funny as I've watched the clip a few times the thought ran through my mind "It feels like they could have rehearsed even just once more for the last third of the performance to really be tightened up.

TBH though we're just being critical but at the end of the day, during the first watch, I was entirely moved. Exceptional performance

Actually Xtina got up straight after the Ariana performance. :rip: When Kelly came back to do the medley Xtina was already gone and it was just Matt & Demi.

I will say that I do see what some of y'all are talking about. Xtina did kinda feed Demi to the sharks in that last chorus. :laugh: It seemed like the backing track (that was entirely too loud the first time in Xtina's solo) was nowhere to be found in the last chorus so Demi was trying to sing the chorus while Xtina ad-libbed, but then Demi was also trying to ad-lib and Xtina wasn't taking over the chorus. :laugh: It sorta fell apart at that point and you can see Demi was really defeated already from not hitting her note, so it seemed a bit chaotic.
