Horrible, OffKey’s voice is weak and pitchy, and she screams instead of sings.

I thought it was really rude they picked only gabby. The other girls worked hard and won gold too you know. As soon as I seen that I was like wow, disrespectful to those other poor young girls.

I loved watching this debut performance of “Girl on Fire,” by Alicia Keys with Niki Minaj, these are two of my favorite artists. It was great to see Keys again at the VMA’s and also great to see Minaj win the award for Best Female Video. It was also adorable seeing Key’s husband Swizz Beats and their son in the audience as well. This year’s award show will give me and my Dish coworkers a lot to talk about tomorrow at work. Luckily I recorded it on my Hopper, which I love because I’m able to start watching on my living room TV and continue watching on any TV in my house right where I left off. I love being able to go from room to room to watch with little interruption.

@Say it ain’t so: Aww, jealous a bit? Alicia was in her element and she was lookin and sounding great. There’s always going to be the occasional loose mouthed kind of person so full of misery they find it necessary to spout out negativity. Anyone that has something bad to say about Alicia’s performance, to me, does not only not know how to appreciate a great musician, singer, entertainer, etc. but also doesn’t know how to enjoy a beautiful moment of seeing someone do what they really love to do. It’s very inspiring to see a performer at her level and type of music perform with such positivity and not be drawn into making music of little substance or negative influence aimed at the younger generation. Alicia is still at the top of her game at a time when many artists could care less what is put out there for our youg people to hear. I have much respect and admiration for her and her music.

@Karen jealous? I gave my opinion of what I saw and heard. Are you obsessed,because you wrote an essay of positive opinions about the performance. Because I disagree with you, don’t be childish and resort to personal attacks.

@Say it ain’t so: Lol, so did I. And btw, resorting to name calling is what I would call a bit childish.

I loved this performance. I cannot wait for Alicia’s new album, she is a true musician, not many of those left anymore, her music is timeless, you can play her first album today and it is relevant, some of these artist that people worship now, will be forgotten in 2 to 3 years and they will be on to the next one but Alicia is just a timeless artist, her music will be relevant for years to come, she even managed to tame Nikki down and bring her back to her core with this remix. I enjoyed the performance. I think when people get accustomed to hearing garbage they cannot handle hearing substance, but as you grow up you will appreciate REAL music more than ever before.

did anyone noticed that Keys had a wardrobe malfuction at the end of her perfomance? I’m suprided the media hasn’t brought that up yet being how they are…I like Keys overall, but her outfit looked uncomfortable and she’s aged quickly after giving birth.

@JLO #1:
It wasn’t revealing so it really didn’t matter to the media. The majority of the outfits looked uncomfortanble as in not being something you’d want to wear every day. To me, Alicia still looks like a teenager who is older and more mature. She looks great.

I always find Nicki Minaj so annoying. Her thank you speech made her look high or maybe she just has a low IQ, she acts like a stupid, uneducation cartoon-character (is she even educated?!). I do like her songs when they come on the radio, very catchy, I don’t mind her music. But to me, she’s much better HEARD than seen.

@kelly:
I’m black and I agree. It’s like the media has forgotten about the other girls and that’s not fair to them. For crying out loud, one of Gabby’s teammates is mixed with ALL of the minorities (Asian, Black, Latino). All of them deserve book deals and special features in magazine. They worked just as hard as she did.
