    I think it’s sad that so many other really great struggling country singers that would love to have the chance of such exposure at the CMA. Proves to me that it’s all about who you know in show business.

    Gwenyth Paltrow is a fine singer, much much better than that no talent, always off-key Taylor Swift.

  • Charlie

    @jj fans:

    Paltrow is a far superior singer to Taylor Swift.

  • jo

    She did great. She was nervous, she said so weeks ago, but she was so brave. She showed everyone that she is human and put herself out there in spite of all those who critique her so harshfully and with such hate, so I have to hand it to her! Gwyneth gets an A+ and I now cannot wait to see the show. She has a new fan in me and a lot more, I have a feeling.

    I like her. From what I’ve seen of her on interviews and talk shows, she seems like a nice person. As far as her singing I thik she did well! Yeah you can tell she was nervous but who wouldnt be.

  • Movie Watcher

    I give her credit for singing live and sounding fairly good for a non-singer (if it all was truly live) but I don’t see how this excuses the many ignorant statements she’s made over the years. She deserved criticism for that and I’m glad people remember it because she does the same ignorant thing every year.

    Let’s keep this in perspective. She sang live at an awards show to attract attention to a movie she’s trying to get an Oscar nomination for. It’s not like she saved someone’s life or ended the war in Iraq. I saw a preview of the film btw and Michelle Williams performance in Blue Valentine is much more compelling. I hope she doesn’t get shafted a nomination spot because Gwyneth pulled a Reese Witherspoon and has been actively campaigning through the CMAs and Glee (If anyone’s wondering, Reese was also better in Walk the Line than Gwyneth is in Country Strong).

    she is not a professional singer as an amateur, she is okay

  • TXpert

    I’ve heard worse and seen worse…she actually sounded good…sweet voice.

    The duet she did with Huey Lewis 90′s..Cruise with me Baby wasn’t bad either..good for her.

  • Ann_Howard

    Loved it! She did look stiff, but I really don’t care because she sounded good and it took a lot of guts to perform in front of people who sing/work with country music for a living. Go, Gwyn!

  • Joe NYC

    I think Gwyneth Paltrow is one of the biggest losers in Hollywood.
    She’s not pretty. She’s not talented. She’s not likeable. She’s not intelligent. But she seems to keep wanting to claw her way into the limelight.

  • zzzz

    Wow, impressive, considering she’s an actress, not a singer, and was nervous. Nice voice. The song is good, too.

  • Amanda

    I think she did Excellent considering she isn’t a performer in the music industry! I’d be cra*ping my pants doing that, and I have staged acted before. Stage acting has got Nothing on doing a live performance — especially in front of professionals!!! Good for her braving it up! She is a perfect example of striving and working hard to get what you want. I’m very proud of her. Yes, visibly nervous, but … who wouldn’t be?

  • Victoria

    Her mother Blythe Danner, is a MUCH better actress and much lovelier. Plus, she’s not full of herself as her daughter is.

  • Beetlejuice

    I thought She sounded great in a video from several weeks ago…a promo for the film….last night with Vince…her voice sounded weak…After listening to the women of Country sing all night, Gwyneth failed in comparison to them, but as a civilian singing country and western, she didn’t do so bad. But I think taking her voice to Nashville to be compared to those women was a bit silly.She doesn’t have the chops when in the mix with Carrie, Reba, or M Lambert, etc…

  • Jones

    G did a nice job. And she cleans up well.

  • gbtw

    bravo gwenyth. she held her own, even if her voice isn’t AMAZING. i mean, c’mon- an actor, singing live to a bunch of professional singers, in their genre! that takes something special. wow. kudos to her. never a big fan, but her talent and beauty are undeniable.

  • ellie’

  • hannah

    sounds much better than taylor swift live

  • laurie09080

    She was good, just has to work on connecting with the audience

  • say what?

    get new reps besides the Huvane Bros. and then I will see your flick, otherwise…I’m boycotting all stars associated with them.

  • oy

    Her nasal speaking voice was enough cause to never let her sing beyond a shower at the Four Season.

  • say what?

    But…Gwyenth, you sang just fine. YOU should be doing Goree Girls, not the other. That’s why you have bad reps, that only work for the 1. Why celebs put up with their BS is beyond many. Fire them.

  • Lisa

    I was country when country wasnt cool. Now even actors/actresses want to be country in some form. lol! I think she did a very good job. Her first ever performance was stellar. You could not hear that she was nervous when she sang and that was very important. All in all I say, “it went well and she sounded amazing”.

  • Carl

    she’s better than angelina jolie

  • David

    she did very well

  • Eric

    she did very well

  • juniper

    She did well; that takes guts singing in front of a county audience.

  • zano

    she was great. love the shoes as well.

  • Crystal


    LOVED her performance she did a teriffic job. She know’s that she is not a singer it seemed as if she just wanted to have a little fun. Gwyneth you rock!!!
