She has really gone down hill, It’s funny she named her album “Keeps getting better”
beacuse she has gotten so bad.

# 7

I’m sorry, but I hated it. She sounded like she was really sick and there were too many songs she performed. It seemed rushed.

# 8

7 MINUTES OF HELL

# 9

She CAN’T sing.

Not only has she already had a decade of hits
But she is also the vocalist of her time!!
And you think she will never be legend!?

I don’t think she has a nice voice. She screams alot but in terms of singing ability — zip.

She is too out of shape to be wearing that.
she looks like trash.

Most definately NAY!! She sounded horrible, she was trying too hard and she totally butchered Genie in a Bottle, the only part that sounded good was when she was lip-synching. When she got to dirty, I had to turn.

Something is wrong with that girl… And stop trying to fit in that super tight outfits, just accept your new body or wait to lose some weight!!!

she will never be britney, xtina is a has been

NAY NAY NAY NAY NAY NAY NAY NAY NAY NAY NAY NAY NAY NAY NAY NAY NAY NAY NAY. & while I’m on the topic of NAY’s, I need the following people to stop performing: Beyonce & Rhianna (they may be the same person). So to conclude Aguliera, Beyonce & Rhianna: ENOUGH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Your time has passed.
The only good parts to this show was Pink, MARIAH and Sarah ft. Pink.
ROD you are so right!!!

First of all she was sick and the performancewas amazing so there’s no need to hate

cindi lauper much?

i liked it because she played the classics

Ok, I don’t mind her but that “performance” was really bad.
she just makes noise into the mic. it was like a cheap Vagas show

she was friggin’ singing live and dancing… I thought she sounded great! Not of fan of the bangs, but overall, it was good!

I thought she did awesome as always!!! and she looks great for having a kid! all u haters need to zip it.. your right she wont ever be like Brittney cuz that ***** is a nut job who cant sing! Christina’s voice is AMAZING!!! so shhhh!

She just doesnt have “it” anymore. Actually she never did.

true, i also think it seemed rushed.
it seemed like it was only the “intense” parts of the songs that was chosen, so all she did was “screaming” through all her performance.
hoped to hear her sing rather than growl during 7 minutes. oh well.
christina is still an amazing singer.

FIRST OF ALL SHE WAS NOT SICK, SHE JUST SUCKS!

The outfit was all wrong for her figure. It was too many songs. It would had been better if she performed just one song.

Lol @ the comments. She’s really embracing that post-baby body. At least it’s not a fat post-baby body anymore.

i didn’t like it. she was so much better a decade ago.

You people are stupid!

Her voice will never change… she has an amazing voice!!

WHats wrong with her body???????

She is the greatest singer alive!!!

Her performance is amazing and not to mention LIVE!!!!!

I really like it the best of the night

.
I had never seen her perform live before
all her fans go on and on about how she is a “true performer”
and her voice is a national treasure and her singing is “the voice of our generation” blah blah blah…
well based on what I just saw and heard she is definitely overrated!!!
I’m sorry but she was awful !!
it was actually so bad it was funny
.

I loved the Beautiful part and the dirrty part it was amazing

Check out the end of Genie in a Bottle, that was NOT live. (The part when she wouldn’t move the mic from her face.) In fact, it was the only good part of the “performance.” You can still like Christina and say that it wasn’t her best. It’s not that serious.

what are you guys talking about? I thought she was great! My other favs were: Miley, Sarah and Pink, and Alicia Queen latifah and that opera singer at the end

Another disapointing performance by Christina.
I use to really like her but lately she seems to have lost her touch
she sounded terrible

LOVE XTINAAAAAAA

she looks so pretty <3
xtina its the best!

Hella ripping off Madonna. Screaming isn’t singing which was done. The dancing is ****** as well. She got outshine buy everyone who perform New kids, Pink, Beyonce, even Miley Cyrus. lol It’s funny she’s is always b*tching about the “performance” in interview and she can’t pull of **** not even live singing anymore.

yveschrischou @ 11/23/2008 at 11:59 pm

It is naturally normal to have some defects in a live performance lasting 7 minutes, and she doesn’t completely come back after giving birth to Max. However, nobody can ever cast any doubt over her competence and achievements!!! I’m totally convinced that her next album will be a hot roll-over!!!

She was terrible! When I first flipped to the channel I couldn’t even tell who she was! I was trying to figure out why someone else was singing Genie in a Bottle!

I hope she regains her talent. She used to be good.

It was ok. it felt dragged and it was too long. I know she’s tryna promote her greatest hits, but the songs she did were all the ones no one remembers. She seemed a little bored. Overall, it was okay and forgettable.

first lady gaga, now madonna….she looked like madonna on her current tour only worse…i dont hate on bigger bodies, but come on! jenny jones had episodes called your too fat to wear that for a reason… overall sucky performance for someone whose “the voice” of our generation….ill kindly say that belongs to pink…what a ******* awesome performance she delivered.

NICE TRY BUT SHE WAS NOT SICK. SHE DID AN INTERVIEW BEFORE THE SHOW AND SHE WAS FINE.
IT WAS JUST A BAD PERFORMANCE.

WORST PERFORMANCE OF THE NIGHT.

stupids britneys fans!!! **** off!! christina is way much better than that ******!!!! can britney sing live? lol hahaha she is more like a dancer!!

stupids britneys fans!!! **** off!! christina is way much better than that ******!!!! can britney sing live? lol hahaha she is more like a dancer!!

Meh, She’s boring.

I’M NOT A BRITNEY FAN AND I THOUGHT SHE SUCKED.
SO HAHAHAHA.

I love Christina! I definitely think she can sing, but tonight her voice did not sound good.

naw'aw gf @ 11/24/2008 at 2:06 am

she looks flabby
and she looks old
kind of like Cyndi Lauper except I think Cyndi is much cuter

she was easily the performance of the night. she looked amazing and was by far the biggest talent on that stage tonight. BY FAR

She’s not in shape enough to wear that and her singing was painful to listen to. What’s wrong with you girl?

lol she was just great to death …..

the best of the best … it’s not because you didnt like that it was denuded of talent ….
…. she was awesome…… brillant girl keep on !!

haters just dont be frustrated no to have been there !!!

she is simply AMAZING! Everyone can have bad days vocally, and she already proved herself, all these haters, i’m so sure that they all know how amazing she is, they’re just jealous and full of hate, im sad for them… Christina rocks! if you’re really i mean really dumb enough to not know her real “live” voice, check out its a mans world performance from the 2007 grammys and at last performance from the stripped tour……

awesome
haters suck !

xina you the best

If you remember her last performance when Britney won all those awards Christina lip synced. Bull she was sick tonight, it’s an excuse. The girl can’t sing. All she does is screech.

i loved it!!!
YAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY

i think i’ll be more fond of Natasha’s wonderful performance also happened in that place.

SHE SUCKS! OH MY GOD! WHEN SHE STARTS TO SING I WAS VERY EXCITED! AND THEN I GET SO BOARD THAT I CHANGE THE CHANNEL AND NEVER GO BACK AGAIN! WHAT HAPPENS WITH THE ONLY THING THAT SHE CAN DO WELL??? SING!
I AM VERY DISSAPOINTED ABOUT HER!
I WON´T BUY HER NEW CD!

She sounded normal. Where is the problem? It was good.

WOW I was confused last night because I saw some comments that christina’s voice was gone, so I rewatched the performance, which I thought was great at first, and I still was confused by the comments. Just because this wasn’t her best performance does not mean it was HORRIBLE. That is taking it to the extreme come on people did you hear Beautiful at the beginning, it was flawless. After ain’t no other man her voice did seem to tire, but she is not in her greatest shape (but not fat). One performance and you guys are saying she is the worst singer ever, listen to her sing in the Middle East on youtube and you will change your mind (those performances are recent).

LoL SHE WILL NEVER be Britney??? what artist wants to be Britney?? at least christina knows how to sing! Britney is and always will be a joke…c’mon…I’m not a fan of this kind of music..but I think it’s just Obvious: Christina Aguilera has talent….Britney is just a product of the industry, who unfortunately is still making LOTS of money!!

NO NO NO…..WHAT IS THAT OUTFIT?????????
LOVE HER VOICE BUT RIDICULOUS OUTFIT..

Yay or nay?

It was yay She does have a real voice.

I didn’t like it. It was off.

Blackpervy• @ 11/24/2008 at 9:35 am

Christina is great…but this not best performance of her!
I love Xtina, she’s the best!

she was teh best dress and the best perfomer

I actually like it . But I love Britney!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

stereotype77 @ 11/24/2008 at 10:31 am

Will somebody pleas tell the AMAs that if you can’t get the legendary Miss Britney Spears, Christina is not a substitute. She oversanged, she was yelling, the dancing was horrible. I can’t believe that they honestly believed she could be a highlight for the show. Next time give her 1 min. because she got worst and worst as the minutes went on. Christina hang it up girl a decade was more than we can handle.

Britney>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>Christina… anytime, anywhere

who cares about britney ! forget about that girl on christinas news feed !

christina was amazing, her voice was well, it was live ppl so plz dont say bullsht ! her dress on the red carpet was the best so far ! and it was a great idea to put 7min of hits ! i loved ! i even wanted more

i say big up for the 4times grammys winner Christina Aguilera

YYYYAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAYYYY

Okay maybe she has had better days in the looks department but my gosh people she had a baby… gave life.

And for her singing she has always blown that crazy a$$ white trash wanna be singer (Brittney Spears) away …. Maybe it was an off night but i have seen her in Concert in Vegas and she blew the house down. Saw the White Trash back in the day and she needs to retire.

Now if you want to bash someone Back Street Boys …. LET IT GOOOOO They where my fav back in the day but let it die.

I’m tired of hearing this lady wail and scream like every song is a James Brown classic.

Aguilera can sing. Who can deny that? But I’m confused by her. Who does she want to be? The next Madonna? Or Patti Labelle? She seems like she tries to copy the black female singers. Her voice is good, but not that powerful. She does not have a voice as strong as Pink’s. Pink can wail out loud without sounding strained. Pink’s voice is deeper and more forceful.

Sorry to compare Aguilera to Pink since they were enemies, but I used Pink because I noticed that Pink’s voice is very strong.

me#78

It’s okay for the pink comparason but christina aguilera can sing and she is just her, she doesnt pretend to want to be the next “someone else” ,

you defntly dont know xtina very well to say what you said …. i know pink has a great voice but aguilera has a strong powerfull voice as well whether you like it or not …
now there are diffrt type of live performances… and christina sings much more better when she stands moveless ( like everybody )

She definitely has a better voice than those of her “ilk” (the bleached or natural blonde with back-up dancers) but she was never very fun to watch. Quite boring actually. She shouldn’t try to do Britany Spears with the dancing. Both are no dancer. Has a bad latina make-up job like always and should concentrate more on singing.

xtina suck now go back to gowns-please not with the 40s-it was done in the 80s- and lay off the makeup the honker doesn’t need bright red lipstick to draw attention –stop trying to be sexy with post-baby bod -sing

CHRISTINA ROCKS, SHE LOOKED BEAUTIFUL IN EVERY OUTFIT. ESPECIALLY THE PINK SKIRT. HER VOICE WAS AWESOME, I THINK SHE MIGHT HAVE A COLD, WE LOVE HER NO MATTER WHAT. YOU WERE GREAT TINA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Haters haters haters christina is one of the best singers of her time!! HATERS NEED TO FALL BACK!! I LOVE U CHRISTINA!!!

She tried too hard, therefore the performance was awful.

What the **** happened to her voice??—- She sounds like a truck on a highway! Did she lose her voice??? OMG!!! can´t believe!
It´s time to rest for some time xtina!!! Keeps gettin´worse babe!

She rocked that stage :]

for being sick i think she did an awesome job
and yes, she was SICK
they we’re talking about it before the show.

EXCUSES! EXCUSES!!

SHE WAS SICK,
SHE SANG FOR 7 MIN
SHE WAS DANCING
SHE IS FAT
BLAH, BLAH, BLAH

SHE “PERFORMED” LIKE SHE ALWAYS DOES! AND IF THAT’S WHAT HER FANS LOVE THEN SO BE IT
HER FANS ARE USED TO RECYCLED MEDEOCER BORING PERFORMANCES BY A LIFELESS NO TALENT HAS BEEN

THEY CAN DEFEND HER ALL DAY LONG BUT SHE WILL NEVER BE A LEGEND, SHE DOES NOT HAVE WHAT IT TAKES AND AS SOON AS HER FANS GROW UP THEY WILL SEE IT TOO .

THEY ARE ALL SOO YOUNG ……..WHAT DO THEY KNOW ABOUT TALENT.

*
*

The ONLY thing SICK about her are were her boobs

*
*
*

She was NOT sick.
that’s how she always is.

P!NK STOLE THE NIGHT!!
NOW SHE CAN SING….UN-LIKE UGLYERA!

I thought something was off I didn’t know she was sick. Whoever arranged those songs didn’t do a good job it was too rushed. But it also looked like some other people were having troubling with the sound maybe that’s why she was oversinging. And maybe she should lay off so much dancing because she doesn’t have to because she DOES have the vocals. As far as here being a legend I don’t know the market is so oversaturated with mediocre pop songs even for the one’s like Xtina and others who do have great vocasl. So time will tell.But the girl has a great voice.

And their is enough room to like Britney and Xtina and anybody else out there. So I don’t understand some of the comments on here they are ridiculous. It’s all music and just a matter of taste.So I don’t see why people pit people against each other it’s so divisive. Britney really can’t sing great but for the dance pop mode she is perfect and you don’t need a voice like Xtina just great producers etc.

A HOTT MESS is what it was. She sounded a mess. And on top of that she looked trashy. She will never be a legend. Her voice it proof of that. She needs to retire.

YAY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

SHE HAS THE UGLIEST BOOBS IN THE WORLD.
THEY MAKE ME SICK.

Iam probably the biggest christina fan EVER,,,but I will admit this performance was’nt to hot…I think she should have did one song from each of her albums and it would have been better.

And p.s. for you biyotches who say she don’t got it no more…YOU LIED…LONG LIVE THE QUEEN!
