Matt looks tired af and like his hairline is starting to push back. I take it though Demi isn’t/wasn’t part of Taylor’s squad?

Demi used to be BFFs with Selena Gomez, until Selena dumped her for Taylor. Hence this legendary video.

Lol I sat about 20 feet away from him.
Sucks she was so far away from our side of our seats, but we both had the same looks experiencing the performance lol.

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.
That’s showbiz for you. She probably saw all the overwhelming reactions to Demi’s highnote when the song first dropped...:susp:

I just watched the performance and I didn’t like it. Those soldiers walking around at that tiny stage were so unnecessary. It made everything look confusing and it completely covered up Demi and Xtina... as i predicted Demi voice cracked... both were just messy and not in synch. I feel like they were distracted with those soldiers and choreography.. they should have just stood there with a mic.. anyway they both looked great.

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:
Yeah you can just see at one moment Demi was completely lost and nervous.

Nah, the soldiers added to the drama of the performance. The staging was great as was the video behind them.

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

Loved it! Christina sounded consistent throughout the whole performance. Demi was a little shaky but it was her first time singing I'm front of an audience with Christina by her side. Lovely performance.

It seemed to me like under rehearsed. Was Demi even there for the rehearsals?

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.
