Again, great performance, but I'm going to need Christina to focus on getting some hits from her next album. She's entering the 20th year of her career and her last, long-standing solo hit (no shade) was 12 years ago ("Ain't No Other Man").

What sucks about it is that she's released great records since then on every single album she's dropped--including Lotus. But without videos, tours, and memorable live performances, they don't track and then when it comes time to do a national televised set, she has to reach back into the catalogue.

That's true, and that's all that her 2018 comeback was missing: a huge solo hit. I hope 2019 gives her one. She's done well this decade with collabs, but it's time to add another solo top 10 to her name since 2008's KGB.

Happy New Year, Fighters! Can't wait to see what Xtina has in store

I thought it was a great family friendly performance. Like that’s a perfect performance for the GP. Good vocals, great look, the hits. Not sure why people are mad. It’s silly to expect anything but her hits. That’s what they wanna see when they see a legend. Would you go see Celine and not expect to see My Heart Will Go On?


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

Lauren Alaina just sang about Britney and referenced Genie In A Bottle during her song Ladies in the 90's during the New Years Eve special.

watching the rest of the performances on the West Coast - didn't know that Lauren Alaina had a song that tips to a hat to Christina and other 90s pop stars in the lyrics...interesting

She said so many "changes" will happen this year... Interested to see what that means.

Hopefully it means Liberation was the last RCA album and she's starting fresh somewhere else.

It was a good performance. Could have been better if she had a more simpler look and if the mixing/transition of the songs were more seemless.

She can start over somewhere else but if she keeps the same energy then there will be no change. People really think RCA was the whole issue? She does what she wants. All we can do is pray that Liberation wet her whistle and she is ready to go hard and be a full time player again.

My theory is, one of the reasons Christina has taken this "no fucks given" attitude is because RCA has continuously not allowed her to express her full vision since B2B.

Well, I finally got to see the performance. It went about how I expected it to go. Her medleys are overly ambitious. The cold weather affected her voice. She looked great though.

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 mean, she's only hurting herself. It's her name and legacy and coins on the line. If her album underperforms, the public is pointing the finger at her. They probably don't even know what label she's on.

Christina just needs to hit refresh on all of this. She needs a new label, new creative team, and a new attitude herself.

She's had the same act for two decades. She's gotten complacent. I hope she's found Maria and that she's a bad bitch who's ready to slay in these next two decades.

Although I agree with you that she probably needs some new environment, I really don't understand why we have to go through this discussion over and over again. We can never do anything about it, it's up to her, so I don't get the point of discussing this in a thread dedicated to her NYE performance.
