Selena Gomez AND THE SCENE Dancing With THE Stars Falling Down Performance

  • smh!

    simmer down, teenie. first of all, listen to colbie live. hell even taylor or britney’s recent “you oughta know”. better than selena to be honest. second of all as multiple people have already said, singing is a combo job. selena’s subpar in all categories.

  • NILEYTILDAEND

    HORRIBLE……..THAT PERFORMANCE WAS SO BROING I MEAN SHE CAN’T SING…..NOT LIKE MILEY SHE DANCES AND ENJOYABLE TO SEE THAT GET ALONG WITH THE MUSIC….

  • Anonymous

    she was so awkward and not good at all

  • ek.

    she was stunning, but she cant sing live :(

  • Kelsey!

    Umm yes clearly she can sing. I saw her LIVE already and she can sing. She doesn’t have a powerful voice, but she has a soft sweet voice and she can sing with that. Right here is another performance where she shows off she can sing. She was a bit nervous because this was her real live performance, but regardless this show you guys she can sing. She’s a good/ok singer and she’ll only get better with vocal/singing lessons if she decides to keep pursuing that.

  • bella-louise

    wow rnt u pompous…. u should rly just not comment on here because apparently u just dont have nething nice to say… so go suck an egg and move on… meh just my opinion…..

  • -_-

    yes kelsey we know
    selena is a goddess, best actress ever, will win a grammy emmy and oscar and tony, etc etc

    This was Dancing With the Stars, not the Roxy. She couldn’t dance around like she did at the Roxy, because this is the dancers’ stage and she was in a pretty small position. Plus this is her first television performance.

    OH PLEASE! You did not just say she couldn’t dance around cause it was DWTS and not the Roxy. That’s complete BS. WATCH ANY OTHER performance from DWTS and you will see that she COULD HAVE moved around. Any performance. You should have just said that she was nervous instead of making up that excuse for her
    ——–
    How could she? do the stage presence; when she’s freaking standing on 2 by 4 stage; and it’s too crowded?

    What do you want her to do,
    take all the space for the dancers and show off?
    ————
    I didn’t say that! All i said was to not make up a BS excuse that she couldn’t move around on the stage she had! I’m pretty sure it’s possible to move around on there. How? MANY others have done it before her, and they STILL gave awesome performances. Like I said, you should have just said nerves got the better of her instead of that comment.

  • &

    yes, you are born with vocal cords. but we are also all born with muscles. the same way you can develop your muscles to using them to their full potential is the same way you can do so with voice. no i dont anticipate her on being the next whitey, but she does have a certain amount of potential that can be reached.

    if you feel she is not a good singer, thats fine. but that doesnt mean everyone will agree with you.

  • w.e

    she cant sing for shit she needs just to shut the fuck up and stick to actin

  • Kelsey!

    Did you ever see me saying she’ll win all of that? No.

  • lana123

    She is gorgeous and a good actress, but please stick to acting.

  • jonaslovatobabe

    but honey
    miley does NOT look like she is bored
    out her brain while preforming.
    selena is NOT a good performer ….YET.
    she will get there one day.
    but her performance level is nowhere near miley’s.
    miley owns the stage.
    selena looks afraid of it.
    im not saying she sounds bad she was fine…i guess.
    but her performance was not the best.
    i was paying more attention to the dancer’s
    then i was her.

  • bazookabublegum

    Selena’s adorable and all, but… that was just.. like really bad. :/ I’m sorry but I couldn’t even get to 30 seconds. Maybe.. she should just lip sync for the rest of her career, or something, ’cause that was just, not good.

  • cougarchiickx3

    boohoo. who cares if oceanup doesn’t like her? it’s not like everyone is going to like her. & see, there you go, starting drama between miley & selena, when this post has nothing to do with miley. whatever. anyways, i’m not really a fan of hers, but she looks pretty, but she can’t sing live. oh well, at least she’s a good actress.

  • lamis

    honestly to the ppl who are comparing her to miley. how long has miley been doing this again? yes, a long time, she’s got plenty of practice. selena’s new so give her a break and for a newbie this is awesome. i am not a huge fan but i am human, every thing takes practice before it’s perfect.

  • Alexa?

    HAHA. That was really badd! I’m sorry. But she REALLY needs to stick to acting! I mean come on! Listen to her! She can’t even sing the right notes on her OWN song! Wow. That was pretty funny when I watched it! (:

  • zet

    AGAIN, no good. she can sing but she’s not a singer! there’s a big difference. I TOTALLY LOVE SELENA but this is just a no-no. ;c

  • Yasmine

    she derfinately CANNOT sing !!
    nd thats it !!

  • MissTree

    Uhm, anyone want to say she’s dressed like Miley Cyrus?
    Yeah, didn’t think so.
    ;)

  • HAYY

    you guys stop comparing her to miley
    miley’s been performing on stage for how many years?
    this is selena’s second performance. give her a break
    love her. <3

  • Anonymousssssssssss

    you guys are so mean.
    atleast she got up there and did it
    she was amazing.

  • demirocks

    omg!that was terrible she should stick for acting :( poor sel

  • Anonymousyoyoy

  • niamhxxmc

    Well shes okaay but whatever she is doing to her voice she sounds atleast 10 years older! :(:(

    I loveee her but ii thot she was b etter than this :(

    better performer
    better singer
    CAN go higher
    Suck It, Bitch

  • mileydemijbpones

    ok people keep saying oh stop hating she did good the thing is that people have diffrnt oppinions my opinion is that i was not good bad stage presence and she lacks in all three things of being a singer. of course im gonna compare her to someone i know they are all diffrnt but we are all human miley was a kid when she did her first performance she was like 12/13 and she did the same kind as selena she sounded a bit worse but thats because she was acctually singing but selena kinda talked alot and selena has had 3 perfomances i think thats enough for me to figure out if she a good singer and she is not really i can acctually sing better than her i would put a vid on u tube if u want and as for demi there is no comparisson demi is overall better at singing miley is way better now selena is going to have to take about 1/2 or 1 year to get to miley is now and miely is still getting better and she cant get to demi cause really you have to be born with singing talent and selena dosnt have much of so there isnt much to rooom to get beeter you get me but i STILL LOVE SELENA.

    she did well for her first tv performance (:

  • HannahMary

    Ok, I’m not a Selena fan but I’m not a hater either but what really irritates me about this and her Roxy performance is that everyone excuses her weak vocals with ‘it’s just such an achievement for her to be there’ uh, why? If it’s such a struggle for her to perform, why is she doing it? It’s not an ordeal for her to go through, it’s a decision she’s made to enter the music industry when she lacks the talent. Just admit she’s bad and move on.

  • Cady

    Give her a break people, she’s probably nervous after all this is her first live performance. She’s gonna get better in the years. Whereas Miley has had practice for looooong.
    They are both good singers. :)

    Yes, nerves got the better of her. But you also have to know that the spotlight belongs to the dancers. I know that Miley performed Fly On The Wall, but that was a season finale. Just the backup dancers were dancing, not the contestants. She had enough room and experience for stage presence for that show.

    Anyway, Selena will get better if she keeps up with her vocal lessons so she can have more confidence and project her voice more.

  • cali_gal06

    lol. yea well you cant compare her to miley b/c miley has been doing this for YEARS. this is selena’s FIRST performance. she actually did pretty well! Miley was HORRIBLE her first performance and still cant sing for the life of her-but she is a really good performer.
    give selena a break! if she was okay the first performance, she can only get better! i wish her all the best. But i do think that her acting is her strong point…if singing doesnt work out, she is still the best actress on the disney channel.

  • Hmm.

    I wonder why you keep saying this. Have you ever studied music? You can’t simply make someone’s voice better. You must work with what you have and, to be frank, she doesn’t have much.

    cut her some slack*

  • Adam

    Yes, I have studied music. I have even took voice lessons myself. I wasn’t much of a vocalist, but now I excel in singing. As for Selena not having much, did you hear her YouTube videos of her singing Baby It’s Cold Outside and Thousand Miles? Sounded like she had a good amount to work with.

  • ohhheyyyyyy

    hahaha, saying miley’s good…thats a funny joke

  • Hmm.

    I’m sorry, but that is hilariously false. Singing is at the end of the day a biological process. You’re born with the vocal cords that you’re going to have forever. Further, I am entirely sure that if you were not a superfan of hers, you would be able to see what we all can. Namely, that she is not meant to sing.

  • ericabbyx22

    She’s so pretty :D :D
    She was okay at singing.
    Give her a break, shes new to this.

    Is it just me or does “i don’t miss you at all” the beat song like a Christmas song though. xD

  • Kelsey!

    Told you guys she can sing. Yes she might not have a powerful voice like Christina Aguilera , BUT she can sing. Considering this was her first live performance she did excellent. Her voice will only get better with singing lessons. See proof SG can sing. She was just a little nervous:D

    she looks clueless…like she doesnt know whats going on..shes soo boring to watch compared to miley at least miley dances around and stuff

  • AimBaby

    she’s beautiful and I’m a fan,
    but she really can’t sing that good live :/

  • Erica

    Terrible singing, her voice was totally flat and she hardly hit any notes. But on the plus side I love her hair. I want it.

  • ss

    uhm she wasnt that good, im sure with more practice she’ll be better :)

  • paige

    so who DIDN’T buy her album today?
    *raises hand*

    selena. you think oceanup doesn’t like you.
    when the truth is, we just want you stop convincing yourself you might actually be successful in the music industry.
    wouldn’t you rather hear it from us rather than music critics?

    meh, just my opinion.

  • Athena

    shes ok. she can sing but you can tell shes very nervous. give her a break. shes just starting. she just needs to be more confident especially moving around the stage.

  • Ilikeeveryone

    I don’t really like her clothes, but she did really really great!!
    She CAN sing live, that’s for sure!
    SELENA IS AWESOME!
    She is ans amazing person, so beautiful out and inside and now she is doing a really good job in this musics industry! :)
    Love you Selena! Keep making people happy!
    You deserve the best! God bless you *-*

  • DOUBLE STANDARDS.

    LOL, that’s not a joke, your life is. :)

  • ari

    did she not sing the youuuuu thing in the chorus? she probably can’t make her voice go that high irl i guess

    anyway it was pretty blah

    no offense b/c i think she’s lovely

    i’m just keeping it real here

  • Anonymouse

    That wasn’t very good. :|

  • #########

    If she’s not meant to sing then I guess you should say the same thing about Taylor Swift and Colbie Caillat, heck even Britney Spears. They all have average voices!

  • bianqueesha!

    I love Selena and all… but that was kinda bad :/

  • better luck next time

    she cant preform live she doesnt have the personality most actors/actresses can act like a character but in real life have no personality.

  • Vale

    I looove her
    she is amazing
    I love her cd
    I love how she sing in the cd

    BUT SHE CAN´T SING LIVE

    :(

  • paige

    ehhh… too much makeup! :/

  • Adam

    How is that false? Did you ever take voice lessons? Singing is something that develops with time. You also have to take good care of your voice and work hard. If you weren’t such a hater, you would actually see that she does have a pretty good singing voice.

  • Anonymous

    taylor and colbie make up for it in their writing, britney with performing. and they’re all better than selena tbqh.

  • anonomous hahah

    give her a break she id great!!
    its her first live tv performance and only second ever show. miley want good when she first started neither was anyone, she will grow in time and will become more comfortable on a stage. i couldnt do hwhat she just did that well on my first time

  • jonaslovatobabe

    she is adorable and i love her.
    :D
    lmfaooo
    i was watching this and my little brother
    was like who’s singing and i was like selena gomez
    and he was like that’s weird she sounds exactly like you…
    :/
    anyways she looked beautiful.
    and she needs to improve on her stage presence.
    she seemed really awkward.
    but so far she’s doing fine.
    it seems like she can’t hit her high notes though.
    but she is doing good.
    im really proud of her!

    I liked it :)
    She did awesome sad that she didn’t hit some notes
    but she’s not ready for it thats fine :)

    Great job selena!! <3

    Oh, here we go. I’m a hater because I realize that her voice is weaker than most people who record videos of them singing on YouTube. Yep.

  • AllyJonas1

    I love selena. i look up to her. i sing but i know my voice isnt no Miley or Demi. but she does it cuz she loves to and so do i.
    i think this performance was great.
    I love you Selena!

  • cataclane

    i loved it! yes she can sing…shes not the best but she can sing!!! but i do agree she need to have more presence….anyway that was really good!!!!

  • Anonymousl

    it was just below average. not bad enough for my ears to bleed, but definitely not good enough for a record deal. people on youtube are way more talented.

  • AnonymousVXNXVN

    okAY SHE NOT THE BEST BUT SHES BETTER THAN MILEY LIVE
    OKAY YES I BROUGHT MILEY INTO THIS

  • ellak

    she lowered the entire song by an octave o_O i know her voice is edited on the cd but those notes aren’t THAT hard to hit.

  • Rosie

    I would say this for any one with the guts to get up there and sing…good on her for giving it a go.

  • iris

    Hahaha Pathetic performance

  • ericabbyx22

    no, i’m sorry but miley is much better.
    and miley has amazing stage presence.

  • jakk

    i feel like selena is going into this whole music thing wayyyyy to fast, same for emily osment, and other disney starts that are trying to make it in music and acting, this is just my thought about this thing, okay!? so please dont hurt me, lol,

    well seeing as selena is surrounded with a bunch of celeb friends like taylor, miley, demi, jonas brothers, etc,and guess what, there all accomplished singers. maybe possibly she wanted to start singing because she was jelous and wanted to be in that scene, like touring, and going to music only award shows and whatnot, and maybe she felt left out, because taylor and demi are obviously really close to her, and shes surrounded by all these singers. you know what i mean!? idk, where im going with this but yeah, maybe she had this day dream about winning a grammy idk, thats just my theory.

  • w t f

    well selena’s said that she wants to bank in on her popularity. a clothing line, perfume, this, a bunch of other shizz. gotta make that dough somehow considering disney is notorious for paying their actors next to nothin.

  • SELENACANTSING

    SG CANT SING PERIOD. SHE HAS SANG IN FRONT OF A LIVE AUDIENCE BE4 SHE SANG CRUELA DEVIL BEFORE AND SHE SUCKED THIS WASNT HER FIRST IT JUST PROVES SHE SUCKS AT SINGING

  • lovemiley4life

    agreed!!!!

  • eeee

    no way!
    selena is definitely not the best.
    and this is coming from a huge fan of hers.
    but all miley does is shake her head as if she’s having a spazz attack.
    and I used to be, I swear, one of the biggest fans of her.
    but she needs to calm down!

  • #######

    Taylor and Colbie can be the best songwriter in the world and Britney can be the best performer in the world, but that STILL doesn’t change the fact that their voices are as average as hell!! Selena can sing just as good as them. Why? BECAUSE THEY ALL HAVE AVERAGE VOICES. So it fucking pisses me off when people say that Selena can’t sing, but then they turn around and say that Taylor, Colbie and Britney can sing. FUCK THAT. I’m sick and tired of double strandards crap!!!!!!!!!!

    And I know that the spotlight belongs to the dancers. I just wanted to get across that she needs more confidence and stage presence. Her performance didn’t even look like one. It’s like she’s doing karaoke or something. Yeah, i agree with some of these peeps. And Miley’s performance was a fast song, yeah. But Selena’s is too, somewhat. Anyway, she could have still moved around more and had more energy. But, I can give apass for that, cause it was her first performace in front of a crowd. Take away the love and stardom fomr her for a second. If she was normal like you and me, and you heard her singing, would you HONESTLY, from the bottom of your heart, give her a record deal?

    Selena sang fine, but she seemed really, really nervous. This is her first live performance on NATIONAL TELEVISION. The girl must have been terrified.

  • NashFarolito

    PLz, it could be worst! she SING OK! she’s never gonna be like miley or demi and we all know that, so STOP COMPARING! She did a great job in her first performance live to all the people that watch the show!
    She was pretty nervous and the face that she made at the end it’s the proof!

  • MileyFANDUH!

    OMG, why can’t Selena fans just own up that she can’t sing. Her voice is so FORCED and sounds NOTHING like her STUDIO VERSION. Nice to know what her voice REALLY SOUNDS LIKE. And before I get all the “At Least her voice don’t sound like a MAN” comments, Ask yourself this question:
    Who’s CD has been in the top 10 for 3 weeks?
    Who’s has the highest charted single ever?
    Who actually SELLS OUT HER CONCERTS and dose not CHEAT and give a QUARTER OF THEM AWAY?

    Definitely not Miss Gomez.

    Good luck Selena, you’re gonna need it. Especially with bands like PUSH PLAY and PARAMORE in your way. Not to mention MARIAH.

  • zomg.

    selena is adorable but she’s just not a natural showperson. and that’s okay. i just don’t get why she’s forcing this singing thing. she’s a good actress, just leave it at that…

  • Carlyissofly

    Uh…I give her an A for effort?

  • JackieOh

    it kinda makes me sick how she can get a record deal.
    so many people work so hard for what she has.
    i get it, it’s one of her first performances.
    but most artists had to perform hundreds of shows before getting a record deal.

    she’s really good at acting. i really enjoy that!

  • peacelovecheer

    It’s obvious that production made her sing the song like this. She isn’t horrible, and she was probably told to sing in a different way because Derek and Karina are dancing and the original version of Falling Down isn’t exactly dance-y.

  • Marisse

    She did not sing fine. She barely sung at all. It was more talking, to be honest. No notes were hit outside a very narrow range.

  • Roxx25

    I thought she did great in my opinion
    she sounds just like the album version
    her voice is not like Demi’s but she
    can sing

    but every one here is ganna hate
    on her since it is OCEANUP!

  • yoooo

    wtf was that shit

  • tz

    ehhh.. you can tell she isent made for singing. her technique and everything is really different then say someone who actually sings. like demi, or even miley. but A+ for effort right? she put on a great show.

    I love her, Im a very big fan. But Selena don’t do this to yourself… :( I mean… like… it’s like shes acting like a wanna-be!! Shes not even paying attention to the dancers. It’s like.. I don’t know I feel like she wants the cameras on her only. Her down-to-earthness is fading a bit now.

    I REALLY attempted to be like, it was good! Because I’ve been supportive of her music, and not really her though. But really, this was cringe-worthy. I’m sorry, but she was really off. I’m sure she was nervous, but still. Needs the computer to help her voice.

  • x3

    LOVE SELENA.
    But from this performance, I think she should just stick with acting.
    It suits her better.
    Her voice sounds all..eww-ish haha!

  • ANYnonmous

    i like selena and i think she is a great actress and has a nice pleasant voice, but being able to carry a tune and maybe play an instrument is not the same as being a true musician, singer, song writer. disney needs to stop slapping the singer label on people just b/c they sound semi descent. not everyone should be a singer…there’s nothing wrong with being a great / talented actress!!

    Did anyone else feel or thought she looked awkward during this? I get it’s her first performance and she’s nervous, but she looked REALLY awkward.

  • Anonymousihhhh

    People need to understand that just because she doesn’t have a “big, loud, powerful” voice, it does not mean she can’t sing. She does have a soft, mediocre voice and there’s really nothing wrong with that. She can sing, it may not be up to your standards, but you can’t deny that she can sing even though she’s nowhere near Christina Aguilera.

  • MileyFANDUH!

    And PS, You guys do know that they edit the performances with the CD versions. Just like Disney Channel dose. (Yesm they do if for Demi, Miley , and JB too.) So ha! We’ve all herd her real voice and it aint too pretty

    but i will give her a break cuz it IS terrifying

  • Kayluhh

    Okay…so…
    At first I thought it was iffy.
    But after a while I realized something: I love her voice because It’s not typical among other singers!

    It’s a different sound and that’s why many people don’t like it. I think she has a great voice, and after some more voice lessons and after she grows a little bit more as an artist, she will be even better.
    If you don’t like it, don’t comment it.
    We don’t need hater’s negativity here.

    She didn’t even carry the tune properly. I’m going easy on her so I won’t say that she should quit singing (even though I’m thinking it) but if you can’t sing and can’t carry a stage then you are not cut out for this industry. Period.

    I don’t know what you guys are talking about, but she performed really good, thank you. I totally agree with what LALALAReally said.

    “It’s perfectly okay for a professional singer to be nervous on their first show. She’s human, just like everybody else.

    I wish everyone would cut her some slack. Like seriously she’s just a girl living her life and having fun with it, what’s wrong with that?

  • lameeee-o

    autotunneeeeeee. thats how she hit the high notes on her album. she prob sounded awful but they just cleaned it right up with that nifty shizzz. they can work miracles on bad voices. and yeah she’s not awful but she’s not good either. she’s mediocre at best. i wouldn’t buy her album or go see her live because her voice isn’t anything interesting. and she looks way awkward on stage. take some lessons from miley and demi, selena.

    Selena’s FIRST performance did way better than Miley’s and Demi’s FIRST performance.

  • AnonymousSe3

    miley is better said:

    MILEY IS 10X21239752097523409572 better. you idiots mileys preformed so many more times more than selena so she knows how to work the crowd. and selena stood there like a deer in headlights
    ————
    give her a break, its her first time singing on tv with a song from her new album. I remember miley and her first performances she danced like she was having some sort of attack and her voice was very shakey. I am not hating on miley cuz now she sings nice and she dances better. I am just saying it like it is.

  • RandomGirl

    Alright.
    Look at it this way.
    That’s Dancing With the Stars.
    I can see why she didn’t sing loud because her band wasn’t that loud and you can’t really get into your performance there, ecspecially when you’re not really their type of style.
    For example, when the Jonas Brothers sang “Lovebug” it wasn’t really an energized performance.
    Sure, Joss Stone killed it, but that’s because her band was loud and it was their style.
    See what I’m saying?
    I think she did good for the type of show she was on.
    May I add, that’s the first show she’s performed on I believe and she’s only played one more show other than that.

  • ??

    looks and sounds like a deer in the headlights btw

  • wha who

    Why is she even doing shows now she should stay in the studio for another year and learn how to sing and perform before she even gets put in any live shows. i feel bad for the roxy and house of blues when she is going to next. atleast CBGB closed before she could “sing” there and ruin that place. if she wasnt a disney singer she would still be trying to get her demo heard by even indie labels

  • Stewie

    Joss Stone was kick ass. Selena, got her ass kicked.

  • melemma

    she sounds squeaky live.
    she doesn’t dance and doesn’t take over the stage like she is suppose to do. she just stands there singing. did you realize that no one was cheering like they usually do. they were just sitting there until the dancers came out. miley is not that much better of a singer but she controls the stage which doesn’t make it look boring like this. oh man, whoever signed selena should get fired from their job for having horrible taste

  • Anonymous

    lol you probably don’t even know what those performances were.

    Basically. Selena’s grown on me but she can’t sing and the teenies that deny it make me laugh. Like I am a Miley stan but I can admit when she sucks live. These people seem incapable of that.

    Dude, EVERYONE gets nervous the first time they’re on stage in front of millions and millions of people watching. Even the most famous, talented, successful singers were nervous when they first started performing on stage. So don’t give me that bullshit.

    Of course everyone gets nervous but a true musician is able to overcome it and perform to the best of their ability. Demi cried before her first big performance and she sounded great.
    ___________________

    Yeah and I’m sure Selena will overcome that if she keeps performing on stage and improving her voice, so whats your point?

    The point is the “it was her first performance” isn’t an adequate excuse.

  • Cassie

    How do the Miley fans feel right now when all the Selena fans are sticking up for her? You sound pretty mad. Huh, sounds exactly the same way around when it comes to miley and you are defending her. Everybody is just nuts in my opinion. I honestly think it’s about time they like ban comments on oceanup, cause most the time they are hate comments.

    No, this wasn’t the best performance, but you have to give her props for standing up there and trying. For her 2nd show and a televised on at that, she did better than most of you probably would. Give her a break, she tried, give her time, she could get better. With a little voice training and coaching and a few shows behind her, she could perk up and speak out and have a EXTREMLY strong voice.

  • ughh

    okay, these excuses are just getting ridiculous. lovebug is a slow song. obviously it’s not going to be energetic. this is a self-described “dance song”. it should have been energetic. it was not.

    but above all it just was poorly performed, vocally. the end.

  • wha who

    she sucked

  • MeMyselfAndI

    Have you noticed that Demetria Lovato didn’t sign up today. She didn’t want to show some support to her “best friend”. Seriously, her birthday and now her first album… She’s a bitch sometimes.

  • deeeeee

    There are thousands of girls out there with amazing singing talent, who are busting their asses trying to get recognized.

    I like Selena, and I recognize her for acting.

    But being handed a record deal when she does NOT deserve it, that just sucks. It just is so discouraging to all those singers with real talent.

    But I really do like Selena, she’s adorable and really talented! Singing just isn’t her thing.

  • Amy :]

    Oh please. You either got a voice or you don’t. She doesn’t. It’s not gonna suddenly become amazeballs. Get over it.

  • heeeeey!(:

    i really liked it. i agree. she may not have the “strong” voice demi has, but she does have potential. when she gets more vocal lessons, i’m sure she’ll sound less nervous.

    pshh, can you guys stop with the whole miley & selena thing? it’s getting annoying. miley’s okay.

    she was kinda just singing backup for the people that were dancing in front of her. they practice that dance to her song. so y would SHE BE UP THERE DANCING AROUND TOO, WHILE THERE DANCING DOWN THERE!?? LMAO

    I think they told her she couldn’t jump around and stuff, so she looked really awkward & nervous just standing there singing a song your suppose to dance to.

    I’LL GIVE HER PERFORMANCE A B- lol

  • js.

    you have to give her credit. she can’t sing, only cowrote one song on her album, and can’t perform but she’ll still convince thousands of dumbasses to buy her album. THAT is talent. props, selena.

    k, wait, did you mean her singing or the whole performance sucked??? cause her singing didn’t, but she lacked on (as you said) stage presence and all

    her voice was completely flat to the point where she was more talking than singing. the entire thing was bad.

  • Sydnee

    You guys are so much like seriosuly give the girl a break. she can sing. just not as powerful as Demi or Miley. She does need to get a little advice on stage presence but i just think she was a little nervous. GIVE HER A BREAK!

    i mean mean* sorry!

  • RoxMySox

    and she can’t act worth a shit.

    EMABRRASING!!
    Now thats just sad.
    Stick to acting! That’s hella annoying, my friend sings better then that. Ahaha
    And she wont ever get better, if you cant sing, YOU CANT SING! Its pretty sad how people think shes good.
    Demi Lovato is one of the best disney singer so don’t even try to say you think this was good. Ahahah, Save yourself the damn embarrsement and never sing again. PLEASE!
    Acting is the only thing you’ll ever be good at. Just sayin :)
    And to those who say then why are you even looking at her stuff, I don’t hate her, she is a good actress and pretty she just CAN’T sing! Just sayin.

    and people comparing miley&selena. WTF?!
    miley has good stage presense. she doesn’t look like shes absolutely bored with the song she dancing and she can actually hit high notes.

    First-She looked adorable.
    Second- It’ll take her a while to gain confidence and stage presence. It’s like that for all new artists who didn’t start out performing to audiences. As for her looking really awkward- remember Demi in Camp Rock? the final jam? She was awkward. she did weird things with her arms and body. now- she kicks ass.
    Selena just needs time.

    it seems some people are just changing their name to write similiar comments. i stil thought we did well. she does have a voice and that voice is actually pretty distinct to her. its not a typical pop voice, but not quite a ‘twang’ either. if you thought she did ‘horrible’ i’d imagine you just don’t like her way of singing period. same concept with taylor.

  • hannah

    she did OKAY but not amazing like miley && demi do on stage. she could be alot better if she dance around cause this song has a perfect beat to dance to!!!!!

    OK, let me get this straight – WHY is it that EVERY disney star HAS to release a bloody album! Farout! EVERYONE can sing can’t they?

    She has an alright voice, but nothing special or distinctive enough that she can call herself a real singer. If it was not for her fans, honestly in the music industry, she’d hardly sell a record.

    good on her and she seems like a nice person, but out of all honesty honey, unless you have raw singing talent, then don’t go there.

    Demi is a singer, selena is more of an actress. neither of them should do what the other does.

    DONE.

    omg! she sucks so bad shes horrible i dont know whats worse her singing live or singing in studio she needs to stop acting like some one listens to her music no one does she needs to save people money and stop singing!!!!!

  • your name

    omg horrible D:

  • evev

    what i don’t seem to understand is why the people who are sworn selena haters even jump on such posts to watch and comment them? you know you hate her so why do anything about it completley ignore it and move on away from it so pointless..

    i loved it.. i’m just really glad she actually sang and didnt rely on the backup track or lip syncing; i’m looking forward to hear her do the ballad on the piano in the upcomign shows it’ll be great i adore her voice in slower songs :) + i wont apologise cant wait to hear.. she’s done an amazing job with getting to where she is now – theres no point in any comparrisons between cyrus or lovato or hilary duff or any other tween idol singer pop person lol i just think they are ALLLL so so so much different from one another. yes they all started off with the cookie cut disney lovey dovey songs but then they’ve all changed by record number 2 so i can’t waitt

    definitley a sel and scene supporter and i’m 19 who only likes rnb music haha

    love her

    she looked beutiful and sounded amazing! well done selena!
    WE LOVE U!!!!!!!! <3

  • RainHey

    It’s her first time singing live, maybe she’s just nervous? You can’t be mean to her like that! She just needs a little more experience. Plus, maybe we’re just new to hearing her sing live. ‘Cause when you’re in the studio they usuall edit your voice so it can blend in with the melody. Trust me, i’ve been in the studio.

  • payday loans las vegas

    Ok I was excited to see the Disney girl fall from the stage. I assumed something was gonna happen, since the title was Selena Gomez falling from DWTS stage. So I watched the entire boring clip and she didn’t even fall down. Thanks alot for wasting my time!

    Having the guts to perform is NOTHING without the talent to do it, sorry. Without the talent, you shouldn’t even be a singer, there are many more singers in the world that are so much better then Selena in everyway, they are the ones that deserve a record deal, not her.

  • Anonymous

    Not a fan of miley, selena or any disney things, but I’d like to comment. First of all, If you say she can’t sing, Your wrong, she’s just not good, she’s like a normal person down the street somewhere. Second, Quit singing? No. Many singers, Yes even the singer from PARAMORE like someone talked about didn’t start out amazing. They took singing lessons, Mabye Idonno, From BRETT MANNING, same as others like keith Urban, Taylot swift and more. With a bit of singing lessons, dance lessons and getting used to things, she can definitely go somewhere. Almost anyone can. Think about it. Yes, Miley had singing lessons too…(Bonks some1 on the head)

  • nomos

    oomg my ears are bleeding. that was absolutely Horrible! Miley’s voice isnt good too, but she sounds better that Selena .

  • Anonymousj

    i reckon shes good
    i reckon shes a good actor and singer and she has a nice personallity your always going to get the jelous people or only miley fans ahah only mileys perfect to them nd im a miley fan also but selenas a different person from miley altogether and i think she did good and performed well.

  • Renees

    1. I am neither a fan of Selena or Miley.
    2 I am thirteen and dont say i dont know what im talking about.

    Miley is way better than Selena but it might partially be because she has been doing this for a little longer. Miley’s voice does get a little many sometimes but i personally think she is good. Selena is shit. She can carry a tune, yes. But if you cant sing live then I dont think you deserve to be called a singer. Dont bring Taylor up because she knows music and she sings within he range. Selena is just embarrassing. Im sorry, she looks the part but as people say she has no stage presence. I mean even if your on a small stage i think you can make contact with your eyes and connect with the crowd.Demi cannot be compared to selena because she was born a singer.Miley and Demi’s voices are much stronger. So Selena, please, give up this whole singing thingy. Please for the love of music.

  • Anonymous67

    lmfao she doesnt even sing the chorus part where she goes “yeaaahhh” in the song. what a homo. i guess thats too high for her? wow dont sing if you dont have talent. she sounds like shes drunk singing karaoke. and her band doesnt even sound like their playing live. their probably playing with backtrack. so fucking gay. music is just for vanity these days. no real talent out there these days

  • Leena

    am i the only one who liked it O_o sure it wasn’t the best, but whatevs. shes trying at least. plus at least shes got the GUTS to perform on DWTS.

    but theres also the fact that i wish she would’ve picked another song.

  • NotLikeYouCare

    A little…..Brutal.

  • jinxoxox

    I hate to say this Selena is a horrible singer and an even worse live performer.

  • lovemiley4life

    my opinion…. disney is trying to get every actress to sing. and half of them can’t! i think selena is a great actress but an ok singer. i dont think she has a powerful voice and yeah this was her first live tv performance but anyone could see that it sucked. standing next to the mic and singing doesnt count as a performance. she didnt move!!! i dont like the song and i dont think im gonna buy her album. i think miley has the best voice and then demi can sing alright too.

  • lovemiley4life

    yeah miley has been singing longer but she actually has talent in the MUSIC business. you may not like her voice but i do. selena is trying ill give her that but it doesnt matter if if was her first or last show, you got to bring it to the stage and i know miley does that everytime. hello? do i hear successful?

  • lalalaaaa

    my ears were bleeding while having to sit through that.

    whyy doesnt she sing the “YOUU” partt?

  • Anonymous

    ugh she SUCKS at singing when she forgot the lyrics to her songs or messed up the word she cut it off & let her back up singers do the covering up singers dont stop singing so many times through out their songs they’re the MAIN singers and backup singers arent meant to be heard. She should stick to acting disney stars these days think just because they have their own show they can make it as an artist. Hilary duff pulled it off but…..tisdale
    musso
    etc. no.no.no.

  • Anonymous67

    dont say “omg cut her slack, 1st time”. no one gives a fuck. being a singer is a passion and it takes natural talent. if you suck, you suck and will always suck so do not get a fucking record deal when there’s 873296494 other poor saps out there who have legit raw talent and can’t get a record deal because of stupid fame whores who are just in it for the vanity like this one. seriously, shes not fooling anyone. we all know she cant sing and sucks at it. theres musicians and singers out there who have to work their ass off from scratch just to get a gig and to be recognized and just because this faggot is on the disney channel and is already famous, she gets to strut around in her pretty little outfits and lip sync into a microphone when she sucks. don’t say shes good because you cant even fool yourself. i say fuck this shit and fuck this decade for the shitty talentless artists/music they put out there these days. jesus FUCK.

  • blabla

    OMG I survived until the end probably because I’ve only heard me laughing :p okay seriously…she’s okay but there are so many people on youtube who deserve a record contract but they don’t because there are some stars who think they can sing and of course famous people like selena get what they want especially when they are from disney – disney owns hollywood records…sorry for my bad grammar etc, my english is really bad -.-

  • RoxMySox

    it was good, okay, especially for one of her first performances, she must’ve been nervous, hopefully she’ll get better

  • sunshine

    not bad :)

  • MissM

    I watched her perform on my big screen in HD and I thought she did really well. It’s obvious she was nervous, because when she finished they showed her and she let out a huge sigh and did a little shake. I also thought she sounded pretty much like the album version.

    I just know if it was me up there I probably wouldn’t have done half as well as Selena did.

  • Jaycee

    Pretty bad, to be honest. Love her but not gonna sugarcoat it.

    bad singing and performing. sorry sel baby.

  • kellykellykelly

    Demi’s first performance was at the DC GAMES I think and she was terrible, and her singing was really breathy, but her stage performance was terrible, terrible….terrible. but fortunately she improved a lot. That’s why I think Selena has potential, her performance at the ROXY was impressive, in this performance she proved that she can sing live. So we’ll see how she can do with her 3rd performance.

  • Toona

    Ew.

    demi’s first performance was NOT at the dc games. it was at a mall two and a half years ago. fail.

    and b) she wouldn’t even have a

    …just to name a few. THEY ALL HAVE AVERAGE VOICES. Selena has an AVERAGE voice. Enough said.

    ———–

    sure they might not have powerful voice (but in today music world who does) but what they lack in vocal they make up in other thing like song-writing and stage presence. Taylor Swift and Colbie Caillat both right their own songs. I actually saw Colbie a couple days ago and i think she has a good voice but evreyone has their own opinion. I don’t think Taylor has a good voice (well better then selena) but she and Colbie both know what their ranges are and they stick to it. They don’t try to write song that required them to have large ranger. Their song match their voice so when they sing they sound good. Plus they are both know for writing hit songs which give them a plus as a artist. Rihanna, Britney Spears, Madonna, Nelly Furtado they all have great stage presense. They make people want to watch and listen to them when they’re on stage. Plus they sound ok live, at least as not as bad as this. Selena has a regular voice like any normal person. That voice is find for singing with the radio or in the shower but it not something you would put on display. Rihanna, Britney Spears, Madonna, Nelly Furtado all have at least an above average voice. They are not whitney or celine but they can sing better then most people. The sade part is that selena might have had a chance to have a real acting career later on in life but her singing is gonna turn her into a joke.

  • shmesmx3

    okay. i am going to nicely criticize her unlike some of the other mean people that are like “WHAT THE F***”. I think selena is a beautiful girl. Her outfit was really cute. She is a pretty decent actress. However, I’m not so sure about the singing. Yes, this is her first time. Yes, she is nervous. Yes, she needs more experience. Yes, there are other great singers that usually stay at a small range and do not have the loudest voice. But those other singers, taylor swift as an example, even when they sing one little quiet note, you think, “wow!”. And I just didn’t feel it with her voice. It’s not her fault. People are born with good voices. And she seemed uncomfortable, too. I know she’s really unfamiliar with this, but true performers can feel comfortable within minutes. Simply stated, she is not a true performer. That’s not her fault either. She was born with it. I feel like disney’s pressuring all the actresses to sing. People can succeed with just acting. Angelina Jolie? did she sing? no. did she succeed? definitely. I think selena will do better if she sticks with acting and works harder with it instead of splitting her time with acting and singing.
    p.s.
    I will admit right now that I can’t sing or perform better than Selena.

  • THE Shine

    okAY SHE NOT THE BEST BUT SHES BETTER THAN MILEY LIVE
    OKAY YES I BROUGHT MILEY INTO THIS
    AND 2ND SHES NEW
    3RD THIS IS WHY SHE SAYS OCEAN UP DOESNT LIKE HER CUZ OF U PEOPLE
    ————-
    There is no fucking way selena is better than miley, dude get your fucking ears check. Miley can sing high notes on cue and on the spot without nothing else but her guitar. You compare her to the wrong artist,compare her to someone else but you fail if you compare selena to fucking cyrus. MIley is way fucking better than her, get y selena head out of your ass,she is not good.

    Why the fuck i think she looks like a fucking kid when i look at her. How old is she 14???
    She looks like taylor shiny dresses i love taylor i fucking fan of taylor. I don’t like anyone here but taylor swift.

  • Toona,

    JW, how long will this excuse hold? When she sucked in the live chat, it was because that was her first time singing it in front of her fans. When she wasn’t even audible at her concert, it was because it was her first concert. When she sucked here, it was because this is her first televised thing. Right?

  • Toona

    Lol forever. Just LOL forever. I love you peeps and your delusional selves.

    oh and half of you people saying ohmygoodness, she sucks. and all this…YOU probably can’t do any better. =]

    LILLY!

    Taylor and Colbie can be the best songwriter in the world and Britney, Nelly, Rihanna, can be the best performer in the world, but that STILL doesn’t change the fact that their voices are as average as hell!! Selena can sing just as good as them. Why? BECAUSE THEY ALL HAVE AVERAGE VOICES. So it fucking pisses me off when people say that Selena can’t sing, but then they turn around and say that Taylor, Colbie and Britney can sing. FUCK THAT. I’m sick and tired of double strandards crap!!!!!!!!

    and just because she’s giving a singing a try, it does not mean it’s gonna ruin her chances of being a successful actress. Why? because she’s actually a GREAT actress.

    and it surprises me how you didn’t even mentioned HILARY DUFF. The girl has no stage presense, no writing skills and has an average voice, yet her albums became a huge success!!!

  • AnonymousXOXOX

    Demi’s fist performance in front of a crowd was when she was around 12 hahaha but her first televised performance was at the DC games and she did kinda amazing in that. Just me idk.

    ALSO……….

    Not to start anything or whatever but

    Dancing With The Stars Performances:
    Demi or Selena? :D haha

    Me, myself and I are gonna say Demi. Even though she didn’t do that amazing. She did hit those HIGH NOTES.

  • thesis

    Selena’s FIRST performance did way better than Miley’s and Demi’s FIRST performance
    —————–
    What the fuck? Miley was fucking kid when she performed in front of hundreds of fans more people than her and the girl put a better fucking performance than this.

    If you want to compared her, compare her with someone who she can have a fucking fighting chance not against the queen of teen. she will always fucking lose. Miley is better singer and performer than her that a fact. Stop bringing miley with selena. selena will never be as good as miley compare her to someone selena can actually look somewhat decent for not with the fucking teen of poprock miley!!

    Give selena a fucking chance compare her to someone worth a were she can stand a fucking chance. It will never be miley that fucking sure compare her to a bad singer or someone with a crack voice like her.

    I can tell that she is nervous,

    She will get better for sure and her music career is going to be far.

    Hilary Duff sang on DWTS once and she was out of breath a lot of time, she even did not smile at all during the performance cause she was too tired. So I believe in Selena, she is 100% new to stage performance, but this is still way better than Miley (just my opinion) cause I hate Slutty shit things.

    i’ve been waiting for that little saga to get pitched. different record deals cater to different people. for the most part, an artist with exceeding capabilities would not want the disney-attached record deal. for lack of better words, they are almost ‘over-qualified.’ a record deal like hollywood caters to the ‘little man’ in society so that the minority do not get cramped out.

    your talkings if you’re from the music industry. well, i doubt that! We’ll see if she’s “brainwashed” us, when someone FROM the music industry says so

  • w t f

    i don’t think she’s talking on her cd, no. in this song particularly, during the youuuuu thing, she goes up and down in octaves. that is singing. this is not.

    and to whoever said i was hating, stuff it. my sister can’t sing either but i don’t hate her. god forbid i point out the obvious.

  • Blair Waldorf!

    I’m sorry but she is not that good live. I don’t get why Disney Stars have to Act AND sing. THere’s no point. It’s not like they’re good at singing. Also her outfit wasn’t that well picked out. She kinda reminds me of Sarah Michelle Gellar for some reason. :P

    I LOVE Sarah Michelle Gellar :)

    For me, Selena reminds me of Rachel Ray and Bilson

    it didn’t make my ears bleed but it sucked. sorry. no stage presence, talk-singing, lack of natural talent. ain’t my problem if you can’t see that. not bein a ~hater~, just bein realistic here.
    ———–
    Sorry but it sounds like your hating to me (considering your other posts)-> “saying that this sucked ain’t exaggerating, hun.” There are mean ways of saying things which is being a hater and there are nice ways of saying things which is stating an opinion. You can dislike something without being rude.

    i think everyones way of voicing opinions comes out differently. she has her opinion. you disagree. i disagree as well, but whatever, we all see different things.

    I don’t know about nervousness, but she just sounded like she wasn’t trying. I feel like any kid could get up there and sing that good, and she’s supposedly had a ton of vocal training by now. And she sounds very different from the CD. I can’t help it, I’m not impressed.

    where did i say people wouldn’t kill for a record deal. but those people, i am sure, would also like to make music without limitations and restrictions. they would want to put out THEIR music, not what they are told to put out. not to censor every bit of their music. a place where they could have a band name without their label telling them ‘sorry, we need your name in the title, in order to properly market you.’ many people would kill for record deals, but legit artists wouldn’t risk selling out to disney.

    Haters are going to hate no matter what!

    Honestly, I think you haters really thought she was going to fail big time, but truth is she didn’t…

    Of course you guys are all gonna put her down because that’s what makes you feel better and sleep at night.

    You people are ridiculous…so! she didn’t sound like Miley…thank god!

    And to whoever said Demi has a powerhouse voice…please! Miley should sing country ballads…i don’t think so! Do you think she could sing a Carrie Underwood song? Hell no!

    They all have their own sound…

  • dsayufds

    for the retards that keep saying she wouldnt have a record deal if she couldnt sing guess what she got the record deal because she is with disney which owns hollywood records and disney owns abc this is the only reason she has a cd that and disney is using her sudden new fame to cash in on her while they can by the end of next year she will be gone and there will be a new disney pop star.

  • D

    this is horrible. people say she can sing? no. pretty much anyone can sing. go to voice lessons every week for a year, and your voice will sound ok enough. she can’t even sing the ‘you’ part because it’s too high. it’s embarrassing to have her as a ‘artist’.

  • Nivea

    Enough with the excuses. Some of you are delusional. She would not have a record deal if she wasn’t That Girl From WOWP. End of story.

  • Fiona

    BTW, it makes me sad that they promote Selena so much even though she can’t sing but they barely promote Demi at all.

  • oneofakindxo

    Wow. You guys are so rude. Iget why Selena said “they dont like me there” in that interview when people asked if she could say hi to OceanUp.. its cause most of you are assholes.

    Cut her some slack okay? She was probably nervous.
    Plus it was LIVE.

    I honestly thought she did amazing.
    You can agree or disagree with me but she doesnt need to sound PERFECT live on stage, no one does.

    I am tired of all the fighting. Both miley and selena are good in their own way. If you dont like the way they sing why be mean about it? I dont see how it can make people feel good to put others down. Just remember what comes around goes around.

  • Anonymous25

    ok not bad at all in the singing stuff I thought it was terrible.. it was ok! but the thing is Selena was so stiff she couldnt even bend a knee so weird O_o she should be a little more dinamic move her body a bit…

  • Hmm.

    Bad, bad performance. You can tell she is not a natural performer. IMO, there are three things that make an artist:

    Good singing
    Good writing/instrument playing
    Good performing

    If you lack one, you can make it up by overcompensating in another. Selena lacks all three. Just a bad idea.

  • xD

    LOL

    sorry but LOL

  • Lilly

    am i the only one who notice that she couldn’t hit the high note at all? when she was suppose to sing you, she stop singing and let her band sing that part. she did the same thing at her concert, she let the audience sing ‘you’ everytime instead of singing it herself. well i guess it good that she know her limted as a singer, instead of trying to sing the notes she know she couldn’t reach. but i wonder if she gonna do that everytime there a high note and she sing live.

  • jennybear

    i liked it! just got the album and its pretty good. I think that falling down is not one of her strongest songs. She should sing another one.

  • ########

    Are you on drugs? All of these women I listed have very limited vocal range, their voices are very mediocre, average and nothing special. The only reason why they became famous was either because of their songwriting or stage presense, but it still doesn’t change the fact that they’re voices are just as average as Selena’s. They all have somewhat similar vocal strengths. They can’t hit any high notes, they don’t have powerful voices, they’re pretty much mediocre.

    She can’t sing, to be honest.

    Demi’s ‘Here We Go Again’ album was #1 on itunes in the first hour of its midnight release and it stayed there for a THE WHOLE WEEK, it took it a couple of weeks later to be off the top 10 list( but still remained in the top 20 for over a month and Debut at #1 on Billboards i might add) Selenas ‘Kiss and Tell’ debut at #5 on itunes went down to #7 and is now at #8. Granted it is her first album, but even Demi’s ‘Get Back’ was at #1 mid-day of its release. :D I did like Selenas album but my guess is that Paramors ‘Brand New Eyes’ will debut at #1 on billboards. Selenas will have a decent top 10 MAYBE. I think it was a bad release week for her. She should have waited so NO ONE else would have released the same time as her and she would have been a shoe in at a good billboard place. We’ll just have too see what happens next week. And if it does bad, i am gonna feel so BAD for her because her haters will be SO HAPPY saying ‘i Told you so’

    My fav song from her is: The way i loved you. It fits her voice a LOT BETTER than the other songs.

  • Hmm.

    Not an excuse.

  • Stewie

    She has a voice that’s adequate for a children’s choir. The Taylor Swift comparison doesn’t fly with me. Taylor’s voice is very light, but she knows her range and she knows how to make the connection to the song. She’s a musician, and her song writing makes her a well rounded artist. Selena barely writes her own songs, does not know how to use her, very limited, range, and she has no stage presense. She wasn’t born for this.

  • algjafl

    Lmfao sorry but what was with that weird way she was pronouncing the words did she think it would make her sound better?
    oh & she can’t hit high notes.
    Great actress but really not a fan of hre singing career. She’s been saying that she was taking voice lessons for months she should’ve at least improved a little.

    I understand if people do not like her singing, but why do they have to be mean about it? This is beyond her being able to sing or not. Its personal hate and some are just being really harsh just because they dont like her.

    Yeah she isnt the best singer but its not horrible like some people make it seem.

  • hunnyhoney

    Selena had better stage presense when she performed at the ROXY and quite frankly, I think Selena sings better than Taylor Swift.

    she just isn’t meant to sing. i know this was her first performance and blah blah blah but stop making excuses. she sang this song in her live chat. it sucked. she sang this song here. it sucked. it has nothing to do with the environment. she just can’t sing.

  • fgdfgergdfgd

    this is a joke. she’s making herself seem like a joke. this girl, is NOT a talented singer. & to the people saying ‘she can sing’, EVERYONE can sing. doesn’t mean they sing well. and selena gomez, does not sing well. she doesn’t deserve this, go on YouTube. THOSE kids ARE talented, and if they were famous like selena, they’d get record deals handed to them too. i vote selena STOPS attempting to sing and do whatever the hell she’s trying to do. because to state the obvious; attempt failed.

  • &

    but thats the thing, when you watch a taylor performance you don’t SEE her writing. what you see is what you get.

    if people like the music that is being put out, they are on the same playing field in terms of performance.

That explains her awkwardness on stage BUT to say she has a bad VOICE! WOW Im sorry but I really love her voice its different in a GOOD way! Im sorry but after a while girly bubbly singing voices get OLD and annoying! Her voice is so different that I LOVE it! I hate girls that have to put others down to make themselves look cooler in reality it just makes u look like a rude coldhearted bitch! We do not know her personally only professionally! And so far I have not seen anything bad about her and Im sorry I love miley to and im sorry but Miley has done worse things but u do not see me bashing her for it! We are all human and have are own thoughts but some of u say things that shouldn’t be said and u should feel ashamed about it!

    Entertainer Song Writer Singing Voice live

    Britney=10 0 4 Lip Syncs
    Christina=5 3 9 see below
    Demi=5 4 8
    TaylorS=6 10 6
    Miley=8 8 7 see below
    Selena=2 2 4

    Britney and Christina were both very good at age 13. My family recorded a lot of the MMC shows and you have to give them props.
    Britney’s smoking habit wrecked her voice so now she lip sync live, but she puts on a hell of a show. Christinas voice control has some problems since she took time off and had a baby, but she should be able to recoverf given time. Demi’s has a great voice but struggles to project it. (she even strained it during her concert tour.) Taylor is a great song writer, but her voice is limited and weak. She is only aveage live. (I have heard her many times live. Miley has a strong voice that is unique (differnt). She sings live most of the time and is given props for doing so by critics, She sing well, however she lacks voice control and is inconsistant. I have seen several live performances and it seem to depend on what kind of day she has had. She has sung several time while sick or recovering, which has caused some poor performances. (she is singing sick tonight in SLC. She does put on a great show though. Selena is new. Her voice is not unique or strong. She will need a lot of practice. She did OK I guess on DWTS but she need to decide if she want to attract preteen fans or Teen or older fans. Is she wants older fans, she needs to step up the performace more and dress different. She doesn’t have to go to the extreme of Miley (which I personally don’t have any real problem with) but she should move more toward Paramore’s style.

  • Jame

    Yeah her voice isn’t super strong, but she can sing.

    Exactly with singing lessons. Her voice doesnt just come naturally like most actually talented artists. To me she was just ehh. Nothing special cause if she auditioned for American Idol i know she wouldnt make it even past the 1st round.

    That is not completely true because someone can look at an artist for the first time and not like them. But then as time passes they can grow on them and can change their mind. I really think she can improve. Plus a performer doesnt always stay the same, so many performers are so different now then when they first started. Like they said never trust “first impressions” or in this case never assume there can be no improvement on just a person’s first performances.

    Taylor and Colbie can be the best songwriter in the world and Britney, Nelly, Rihanna, can be the best performer in the world, but that STILL doesn’t change the fact that their voices are as average as hell!! Selena can sing just as good as them. Why? BECAUSE THEY ALL HAVE AVERAGE VOICES. So it fucking pisses me off when people say that Selena can’t sing, but then they turn around and say that Taylor, Colbie and Britney can sing. FUCK THAT. I’m sick and tired of double strandards crap!!!!!!!!

    and just because she’s giving a singing a try, it does not mean it’s gonna ruin her chances of being a successful actress. Why? because she’s actually a GREAT actress.

    and it surprises me how you didn’t even mentioned HILARY DUFF. The girl has no stage presense, no writing skills and has an average voice, yet her albums became a huge success!!!

    just because those people can’t sing like whitney houston or celine dion doesn’t mean they should be label as average. Have you ever heard any of them live before? These people CAN sing. Don’t try to lump them in the same category as Selena becuase they’re better then that. Can you honestly say that you would give selena a record contract if she was a nobody. you know the saying ‘it’s not what you know, it’s who you know’ or in this case ‘it’s not how good you can sing, it’s you are part of Disney”

  • suhvanuhh

    She wasn’t that great :|
    But I still love her and her CD is good.
    Hopefully she will get better.

  • GoGo

    Ouch!!! poor girl!!! but I guess with time she´ll do better :S she is just 16 she still has time to learn, but she is very very like very luky a normal person wouldnt be in her place!!!

  • sup

    I honestly thought Selena sang really well. I wouldn’t say she “sucked” because that would be an exaggeration, but I think she did a good job. Especially since this is her first time performing on stage on national television.

    You guys need to stop being so mean and negative, she wasn’t THAT bad at all.

    ========================
    well you obviously have no idea how to be a singer/performer either if you think that that performance was good

  • &

    of course everyone can sing?!?! but does everyone deserve a record deal–NO
    —-

    but who’s to be the judge of that. i know amazing singers but they could never hold being a public figure artist. they are literally ‘just a really good voice.’ that’s what agents tell them. there really is no right way to deserve a record deal. your definition is going to be different from someone else’s, especially depenging on the ‘type’ of record deal. different record deals come with different focus. in case you havent noticed disney tries to keep the focus of ‘they are just like you’ meaning nothing too extraordinary but good enough to get your attention.

  • 123456y7ui

    ha! i agree, i tought the exact same thing when i saw it

  • MissM

    wait, did you give Christina a lower song writer score than Taylor Swift? =/

  • sAnonymous

    Yes,
    Taylor has been writing or co-writing songs not only for herself but for other country and some mainstream artist since she was 13. Some she was given credit for, and some she wasn’t. (she was orginally under contract to write song for other artist, before getting a contract to sing her own music.) Every song she has sung that has been a hit was written or co-written by her. My only problem with her writing is is always about relationships which will eventually get old. Christina’s first hits were mostly written for her. Most of her current music is written for her. She has good writing skills and has had a couple of hits, but either she lacks faith in her music writing ability or her record producers lack faith because she doesn’t focus on the songs she writes herself normally. I also can’t recall any songs she has written for other performers. So yes, at this stage and time I would give the writing ability to Taylor.

  • uhoh!

    DIDNT MILEY TWEET ABOUT REAL SINGER ABOUT A MONTH AGO?

  • Anonymousihhhh

    Selena sang fine, but she seemed really, really nervous. This is her first live performance on NATIONAL TELEVISION. The girl must have been terrified.

    When you sign a record contract thats what you sign up for. If you can’t handle it you shouldn’t be a professional singer.

    But despite her suckage did anyone see Joss Stone? She was great, I always wondered what happened to her

  • Anonymous

    People need to understand that just because she doesn’t have a “big, loud, powerful” voice, it does not mean she can’t sing. She does have a soft, mediocre voice and there’s really nothing wrong with that. She can sing, it may not be up to your standards, but you can’t deny that she can sing even though she’s nowhere near Christina Aguilera.
    ————-
    Yes, she can sing and she can carry a tune but she her voice doesn’t have the uniqueness or strength that we as the audience naturally expect a professional singer to have. Thats the problem.

  • selenag

    ive tried REALLY hard to like her singing. her album is good but live ehhh. i mean i love her a lot. im obsessed but i feel embarassed for her to go out there on stage and think shes singing good. it was OK at the best. her album is good though, i like that. but shes gonna be EXTREMELY successful in acting. she will win many awards and thats the path she shall take.

  • TheOnlyLola

    I agree with nicole123 Just give her a break seriously.If is not Miley hate is Selena.Just leave her alone and stop criticizing.You guys are not the ones up there singing live on a stage.Probably she was nervous who know but she’s definitely gonna improve more in the future with practice.Didn’t you guys noticed how Miley’s voice changed?? or Nicks?? well they’ve been singing for a long time now.I’m pretty sure the same thing is gonna happen to Selena.

  • Jenno

    Uh. Well. At least she looked nice?

  • JONAS(;

    She definitely needs more practice.
    She cant sing live AT ALL! :|

    Of course everyone gets nervous but a true musician is able to overcome it and perform to the best of their ability. Demi cried before her first big performance and she sounded great.

    It’s like a waste all that pretty for nothing.

    Selena was goood.
    It WAS her first live tv performance.
    At least she didn’t stand there awkwardly.
    You have to let her improve instead of judging her on her first performance.

    aw she’s pretty but that was really awful. I mean, I just don’t understand who allows this to happen.

  • richfame777777

    I don’t care what anyone says, I love Selena’s singing. I seem to love a lot of singers who have “limited vocal range”, like Taylor Swift, Colbie Caillat, Ingrid Michaelson, even Madonna and Britney Spears don’t have the strongest voice ever. I enjoy their singing more than Christina or Whitney. So that being said, I’m glad Selena’s coming out with an album and I’m glad she’s performing on stage. I’m really proud of her! :)

  • ughh

    are you seriously comparing selena gomez to ingrid? dude. ingrid colbie and taylor can all perform live. go listen to live performances of falling for you, you and i, and sparks fly for reference. selena isn’t a “limited” singer. she simply can’t carry a tune. sorry.

  • all5yson the 5 is silent

    dudes
    give her a effing break.
    she was okay
    but she’s new to this!!!
    i bet you people who are trashing her cant hold a tune
    atlast she hasthe effing nerve to step on that damn stage.

  • OMG I GOT THE CAPTCHA WRONG D:

    Yea I see you say this on every Selena post no offense. There are at least 5 girls in my own school who can sing better than this. And I’m NOT saying that to be a hater, like I said Miley sucks sometimes too. But w/e. I’m not gonna convince the teenies of anything so I’m out. See ya~

    Well, I never said you had to agree with me. And I can promise you, there will always be someone better then someone else. Our opinions differ, oh well. I don’t think your a hater. You stated your opinion, I disagreed. No reason for you to try to convince anyone of anything in the first place.

  • Anonymous7879898

    okay, she totally sucked.

    she cant sing live.

    she should stick to acting.

    she’s pretty thoughhh, i’ll give her that.

    hah

  • thesis

    why she always looks like a kid with a bunch of makeup??

    She didn’t hit the high notes, she will be good if she sang rap! what the fuck she do not sing. she mostly talks she should be a rapper. I think she will do good in rap.

    but agreed with the other people no stage presence;and she definately cracked her voice a lot. She did not hit any high notes either??? I thought she said she practice?

    selena your career is rapping baby, singing is not your thing.

  • Mee

    The problem was not Selena’s voice, because her voice was actually not that bad (the parts she sang at least), but rather her stage presence, or lack there of. She really needs to learn how to work the stage and the audience. Hopefully with time and practice she gets better, if she expects to have a future in music.

  • kelly

    i agree. i think a bit of touring will help with that. eventually she’ll find her niche, be comfortable in her own skin and develop a rhythm. i think she’s still in the process of ‘finding herself’ as a performer.

  • holdyourhorsesbitch!

    Give her a damn break. She is new to singing. You can’t expect her to be perfect, let her learn from her mistakes. Shit, she’s human.
    And all you haters hating, admit it, she has a more exciting life than you do lol. Hahaha instead of sitting behind a computer screen bashing on someone you don’t know, she’s performing on national TV. Suck it, hos.

  • borev

    she had some goods… and some bads

  • ____

    i didn’t read all the comments so maybe I’m going to say something that someone else saying but whatever XD
    i agree with this comment:
    “kaylynn said:

    I understand if people do not like her singing, but why do they have to be mean about it? This is beyond her being able to sing or not. Its personal hate and some are just being really harsh just because they dont like her.

    Yeah she isnt the best singer but its not horrible like some people make it seem.”

    now my opinion:
    and no matter what everyone say, i support and love to death this girl.
    i know that it wasn’t a good performance, but she just starting to sing. you can see that she was really nervous. thought she didn’t did that bad you are saying. I’m going to admit when she’s going to do a bad performance, i just wouldn’t count that because it was her first live in TV.
    and plus, she’s not have all the experience before sang in TV, she had her first performance on stage like a couple days before this performance. i think that with all the exercising and the hard work she’s going to do this great. she doesn’t have a strong voice and she knows it. she only co-wrote one song cause she said that she doesn’t want to start drama, and she thought that if she wrote all the songs in the album (or at least the major) people are gonna to be more interested about who the song is wrote than her singing. and she wanted an album fun. I’m not trying to find excuses, I’m just reporting what she said about it.
    and every singer has his/her bad performances. i love Jonas brothers so much, but when they come to Italy (that’s where i live) they did a bad performances. and I’m sure it’s not the only one. so just give her a break, please.
    and i understand why Selena doesn’t like ocean up that much, you are such a trolls.
    and the haters are pathetic, if you don’t like her, then why you comment to say only bad things, and if you don’t like her, why did you came into a Selena post in the first place? :/
    stop being rude. you guys are embarrassing.

    no excuses play like a champ

    people keep pulling the ‘you’re just making excuses card.’ what exactly is she excusing? she said she was nervous, which she is. thats not an excuse, that pointing out the obvious.

  • WhiteLies

    I wouldn’t call myself a Selena fan but I respect the girl.
    This performance was okay; honestly, I felt awkward watching it. I kind of wish she would have gotten more into her song but then again she seems extremely nervous. I’m curious on why she didn’t hit some of the high notes. She looked really gorgeous but I wasn’t really digging the performance. I won’t fully judge until she gets more familiar with performing. Hopefully on her tour, she’ll feel comfortable in her own skin and on shows like these, she can incorpriate it.
    I wish some people would give her a break, she’s probably having a lot of pressure from Disney and she’s extremely nervous. I do see where most of you are coming from but it wouldn’t hurt to state your opinion respectfully and try and say at least one nice thing about it. I like the fact that she got up on that stage and tried.
    And why are people bringing in other musicians and Miley into this post? I love Miley but this has nothing to do with her. There’s no sense in comparing Miley and Selena. They have two total different voices and are on different levels as far as experience.

  • Love Selena till death

    I can tell that she is nervous,
    She can sings, and sing AMAZINGLY.
    I can see her nervous face backstage at the beginning.

    She will get better for sure and her music career is going to be far.

    Hilary Duff sang on DWTS once and she was out of breath a lot of time, she even did not smile at all during the performance cause she was too tired. So I believe in Selena, she is 100% new to stage performance, but this is still way better than Miley (just my opinion) cause I hate Slutty shit things.

  • jazzie

    you can argue that she sings better than miley (i disagree but that’s beside the point) but to say she is an amazing singer is an insult to the truly amazing singers.

    Ok, let’s face it, she REALLY can’t sing. What makes it worse for her is that she’s going to be compared to other Disney starlets. Such as, obviously, Demi and Miley. Demi’s voice is a powerhouse while Miley’s voice is meant for smooth, country ballads.

    Selena’s voice can’t even be described.

    I’m willing to give Selena a chance, because, hey, she’s new to the singing thing. Demi has been training her voice for goodness knows how long.

    The funny thing is, when the crowd was cheering, Selena thought they were cheering for her, but they were actually cheering for the dancers. The song is awful, and the dancers out shined her, and one of the many reasons why they did is because her song is too slow for it to be on beat with them.

    She did have time to put ALL that make up on her face (like everyday) and she didn’t have time to tell her fans to buy her friend’s cd … It takes few seconds only to do that. Idiot
    ————————–

    oh shut up! selena didnt tell people on twitter to go buy demi’s album the day it came out either. And Taylor hasn’t said anything about it today either.

  • …..

    The sad answer is that they are slaves to Disney. This girl is a completely average singer and that is a fact. But Disney has built her up and promoted the hell out of her and they play right into the emotions of tween girls. It’s a sick game.

  • laurenmaria

    i’m not gonna lie. that was pretty bad.
    i’m still confused about why she chose to start a singing career. does she not realize that she can’t sing or write decent music for shit?

  • :)))))))

    She’s not a strong songwriter, she’s not even close to a strong singer, and she’s DEFINITELY not a strong performer. Remind me why she has this record again? :/

  • ??

    b/c lots of 10 year olds will buy her stuff lol

  • Floss you good

    she sucked plain and simple she should not be singing. every one their and watching all said the same thing. who is she? why is she singing? she sucks.

    by far one of the worst live performance ever it was right there next to ashlee simpson getting caught lip syncing on snl!

  • gianna

    what the hell? dude that was so bad. my expectations were pretty low but. wow. o_O

  • TTFrutti

    I’m gonna give her some slack cause Falling Down is such a hard song.
    WOW, they must’ve edited her voice alot in that song ;o

    Selena sang fine, but she seemed really, really nervous. This is her first live performance on NATIONAL TELEVISION. The girl must have been terrified.
    —————-
    When you sign a record contract thats what you sign up for. If you can’t handle it you shouldn’t be a professional singer.
    _____________________

    Dude, EVERYONE gets nervous the first time they’re on stage in front of millions and millions of people watching. Even the most famous, talented, successful singers were nervous when they first started performing on stage. So don’t give me that bullshit.
    ———
    Of course everyone gets nervous but a true musician is able to overcome it and perform to the best of their ability. Demi cried before her first big performance and she sounded great.
    ___________________

    Yeah and I’m sure Selena will overcome that if she keeps performing on stage and improving her voice, so whats your point?

  • ughh

    no. really, people on this site are stupid as a rule, but this just takes the cake. you either have a good voice or you don’t. you either know how to perform or you don’t. it’s a natural ability and she doesn’t have it. end.

  • ??

    why does it sound like there are 2 people singing

  • zomg.

    one is selena singing, the other (quieter) voice is her track from the cd that she’s singing over.

  • //…

    lol. yea well you cant compare her to miley b/c miley has been doing this for YEARS. this is selena’s FIRST performance. she actually did pretty well! Miley was HORRIBLE her first performance and still cant sing for the life of her-but she is a really good performer.
    give selena a break! if she was okay the first performance, she can only get better! i wish her all the best. But i do think that her acting is her strong point…if singing doesnt work out, she is still the best actress on the disney channel.
    —————–

    Aww but neither can selena she cant sing either.

  • MileyDemiAshleyftw

    Taylor Swift
    Colbie Caillat
    Rihanna
    Britney Spears
    Madonna
    Nelly Furtado
    Hilary Duff

    …just to name a few. THEY ALL HAVE AVERAGE VOICES. Selena has an AVERAGE voice. Enough said
    ———
    Rihanna doesn’t have an average voice, if you have seen her live like me, you would know that her voice sounds AMAZING and she much better than most artists these days!

  • cielo

    omg what the heck was that she sounded flat. Can not sing live.

    Selena stick with acting!!!!

  • Anonymous454

    I love Selena, but im sorry she CANNOT sing! Especially live, oh my god; she barely hit any of the high notes!

  • Adam

    Sorry, I tried to correct an obvious grammar mistake, but the OU commenting system fucked up on me.

  • alissa

    Aww she really isn’t a born performer. :/ But she’s pretty! Everyone knows she can’t sing well so IDK what people were expecting…

  • &

    i think its hard to tell at this point. i remember when demi first started performing in front of crowds – extremely awkward and slighty stiff and she’s an amazing singer.

    i just think a lot of things are too soon to tell. judging by this and her ‘vocal lessens’ vid. i really do think she has a lot of potential.

    and i actually thought she did pretty good tonight.

  • MileyDemiAshleyftw

    Her voice was ok but she looked stunning:)

  • xxxxxxx

    she was alright, but i would say stick to acting and build on that because she’s an awesome actress. and anyone else notice how she never says “you” and when she said falling it sounded like “FOLLING” i don’t know :)

  • Anonymous

    Selena had better stage presense when she performed at the ROXY and quite frankly, I think Selena sings better than Taylor Swift
    =========
    agree

  • &

    She’s not a strong songwriter, she’s not even close to a strong singer, and she’s DEFINITELY not a strong performer. Remind me why she has this record again? :/

    people disagree or have different ideals and definitions for those ideals for an artist.

  • idk

    FIRST
    AND SHE CAN’T SING LIVE!!

  • ericaaaaaaaa

    Shes such a cutie.
    love her <3

  • Anonymousfidd

    first

  • you know it[;

    follllow me pleasee[;

    twitter.com/itsashleyella

  • hahahah

    jokeeee! but at least she tried. she neeeds to have more eneergy…

  • heeyy

    second? HORRIBLE.end of story.

  • Anonymous

    Her outfit is cute. She needs to work on her stage presence and voice some more though.

  • lalalala girl

    lol

  • pretzelsss

    right there with you! i’m honestly not even a HUGE selena fan but i think some people are being overly harsh. i listened to it twice and liked it a lot! :)

  • alissa

    Demi IS a bad performer. But she makes up for it with her voice. Selena just doesn’t have it. But it’s cool if you think she does.

  • afton

    ugh. i got to :54 seconds. i couldn’t go on.

  • -_-

    you beat me. i couldn’t even make it to 0:40.

    and i love selena lol.

    but her singing is just… reminds me of that hannah montana episode where lily thinks she can sing really well because she hears the edited version of her voice

    it’s like honey… no

  • Madderson

    I love all the songs on Selenas album.
    But I dont like HER singing them.
    Like Im obsessed with falling down but
    I really dont like her voice.

  • Blair Waldorf!

    lol i knew this was gonna be bad when even the ppl on ontd, who usually love her, were like “stick to acting plz”.

    anyway yeah. can’t perform, can’t sing. gtfo plz.

    then don’t listen to her, idiot! honestly, why do you want to listen to things that you don’t like? just to say bad things?

  • yulabera

    how was i supposed to know that i didn’t like it without listening to it, eh?

  • ericabbyx22

    I thought that was aaron carter at first.
    xD

  • Anonymous

    Falling down was not a good choice as her first single. The song obviously isn’t fit for her voice which sucks cuz she going to have to keep performing it over and over. Your first few performances are supposed to show the world who you are as an artist and if this is who people think she is as an artist than I don’t see her music career being very successful to be honest.
    —————
    Someone posted this in the other Selena post. I agree… :/

  • Blair Waldorf!

    omg lmao. people are saying that she’s better than demi and madonna. i dislike selena but her posts are so entertaining. her fans honestly believe this shit.

    usually its entertaining cause haters could exaggerate to the extreme

  • w t f

    saying that this sucked ain’t exaggerating, hun.

  • Bye.

    I know all the teenies will compare her to Mariah Carey and say that she is DA BEST SINGER IN DA WORLD, but truth be told that was bad.

    Now I’m going to run away before I am attacked by 11-year-olds.

  • ttttttttttttttttt

    I thought this performance was very weak. unlike her best friend, demi. i mean dont get me wrong she is pretty, but she needs to work really really hard on that voice. not liking it.

  • Resa

    saying that this sucked ain’t exaggerating, hun.
    —–
    if you say she’s WAS AMAZING, your exaggerating

    if you say she WAS TERRIBLE, your exaggerating

    if you say that it was better than i expected or she sounded nervous since its her first performance or it was ok, then your not exaggerating

  • w t f

    it didn’t make my ears bleed but it sucked. sorry. no stage presence, talk-singing, lack of natural talent. ain’t my problem if you can’t see that. not bein a ~hater~, just bein realistic here.

  • Anonymous

    Loved it!!!!!

  • Blair Waldorf!

    well selena’s said that she wants to bank in on her popularity. a clothing line, perfume, this, a bunch of other shizz. gotta make that dough somehow considering disney is notorious for paying their actors next to nothin.

    when was that?

  • w t f

    there was an interview here a couple of months ago.

  • kaylaa

    omgggg reallyy she cant fucking singg what so ever she trys to hard . ehh .

    i cant stand her one bitt.
    yeah okay miley cyrus sounds the same live dumbasses shes much more talented then selena gomezzz . k

    dont hate on miey cause selena sucks ? k byeee

  • caligirl:)

    seisma said:

    honestly i’m a selena fan but i do believe that some of you are delusional. how was this good? her lack of stage presence? her nervousness? her inability to hit any notes at all? the band overpowering her?
    ——–

    Why was it bad because she didnt jump around dancing?? Was it bad because she was nervous??? OR main thing was it bad because of who she is?? I can bet that many people on here come here saying that they like her but she “sucked” if they really liked her that is not the way they would say that they didnt like it.

  • seisma

    i’m not talking about whatever excuses you’re throwing out. that performance was not good. i am a fan of her acting and that is where she would be. only a blind and deaf teenie would classify this as “good”.

  • Blair Waldorf!

    I say that she does have time to improve and she will improve, cause since this is her first public performance and she did really good (even though she sounded nervous), i’m sure she’ll do great after!
