    Iggy is awful live…

    • Duckyhoward15

      Something was wrong with her mic

      • Tash

        Something was wrong with Aris mic actually. I didn’t find anything wrong with Iggys or her performance. Ari was off, but her mic was also problematic. It was turned up way too loud & shrieked a lot. It wasn’t carrying the sound well at all.

        • Duckyhoward15

          Really you couldn’t find something wrong with her mic , it was so low you can see her struggling trying to raise her voice and you can listen again and see that her voice was getting so loud on some words then so low most of the time

          • Tash

            I’ll go listen again. Maybe I wasn’t paying enough attention or thought it was supposed to sound like that. I was a bit distracted by Ari.

          • Duckyhoward15

            she can be distracting so i forgive you ;)

    • Cali

      Iggy is awful period

          hey fave

  • EW

    Ariana looks like a 10 year old LOL

    • Matt

      So? She can’t help it so she may as well rock it.

  • damnthesecelebs

    Getting tired of the same performance tbh

  • Danna

    I thought she was better live.

    • Tash

      She’s amazing live. This is her worst performance live that I’ve seen & only bad performance actually(once again, that I’ve seen). I was surprised. But hey, even great singers have off days. Even Queen Mariah. I’m sure Ari will listen back(or could hear it was off) & make up for it next time.

      • Danna

        I loved her AMA performance thats’s why I was surprised. Maybe she is not used to perform to an audience

        • Tash

          Yeah, it’s a bit hard on people who focus on vocals, to have to work a bigger stage. Even though she’s been working for years. She hasn’t done large crowds on a consistent basis & hasn’t had the experience of working a large stadium crowd over multiple tours. She hasn’t even headlined a stadium tour yet. Also, seeing as she mainly concentrates on her vocals, it’s a tough shift to now have to move around a lot & do choreography. I think she definitely has some nerves & is being pushed out of her comfort zone & is finding a bit of pressure in trying to keep her vocal standards up & still putting on a show. She’ll get the hang of it soon enough.

  • Tash

    See, this is the crappy part about being an amazing vocalist & having vocally challenging songs. You have to be on point every performance. You can’t afford a bad day. Otherwise, it’s a mess. So sometimes being mediocre pays. People just are not paying that much attention & you get away with it. Ari just struggled to get up there today. It sounded like she was half a step lower a lot of the time with the 1st two songs. ‘Problem’ sounded fine though because it’s lower & she’s belting through most of it.

  • Rah

    I love Iggy so much, it seemed like their little interaction onstage was weird. Iggy was onstage and then off immediately. I find Ariana too similar to Mariah Carey, and I don’t really like Mariah Carey. She’s so good but it’s a little showy for my tastes. And I can’t get over the fact that she looks like she should be on Toddler and Tiaras.

  • Tash

    I blame this performance on Jai Brooks. See what you get for joining him again, that tone impairment is rubbing off on you. The vocal Gods are angry. They blessed you & now you’re lying to that boy & allowing him to believe that he isn’t a total mockery to music. The truth shall set you free & reverse the karma. True story :p haha

  • Cali

    This is the first off performance I’ve heard of her. And the interesting thing is she still sounds better than most of the big singers out right now. Kind of a shame.

    • Tash

      I was thinking the same thing! Even at her worst(and this was in my opinion, since I’ve watched a lot of her performances), she still slays & hits notes that some can’t even hit on their best day, in the studio, with auto-tune on. So thankful for singers like Ari finally getting an opportunity & saving us from all the ear bleeders.

      • Cali

        Yeah like, I like rihanna. But live I find it hard to find a good performance from her.
        It’s like searching for a needle in a haystack. She would much bigger than she is now if did her songs any justice on the stage.

        • Tash

          I think the problem is her technique. Most singers don’t have a great technique at all & rely heavily on natural ability & strain the throat. So they sound fine in the studio, but the moment you change the elements, they’re screwed. They can’t carry the notes or project. Hence why Ari is different. She uses the correct technique & her training allows her to adapt the voice. But then again, Riri is just drunk 24/7. So that might have something to do with her issues live. When she came to South Africa, she was totally sloshed & was literally slurring & stumbling all over the place. But the crowd still went crazy because she’s Riri.

    I saw this on tumblr the other day and I think it’s the funniest thing ever, I am sorry.

    • Cali

    Her dancing is an embarrassment.

  • Mariah

    People always find something bad about Ariana while she’s one of the best female singers right now of her age. I loved all of the performances or this song and I see nothing wrong in her dancing. Her outfits are cute as always.

    • Parsons

      She should focus on her live performances and stress her great voice. If she keeps trying to up her sexyness and faltering live she’ll just be your average pop singer like everyone else. She needs to find ways to stand out not fit in. I hope she does. She could be a lot bigger if she finds a way to set herself apart from everyone else.

    This performance was awful. I wouldn’t say this if they were all horrible, but this just wasn’t good.

  • Terri

    why does her head look so big? like the back of her head looks like somethings underneath her hair?? lol

    • Tash

      Her hair is always big & she has extensions. So the head looks larger. Also, she’s dropped weight & looking very thin. A bit too thin actually. So that would definitely make your head look bigger. Kinda like a bobble head doll. Like Selena & Justin. What is up with the big heads & skinny bodies trend with the teen stars :|

      • Terri

        oh it makes sense then since she has extensions.. it’s probably where they sewed in the weave but dang i kno selena has a weave and her hair never looks like that.. it’s quite weird. i’ve always thought ariana needed a new hairstylist.. lol

        • Tash

          Oh I never knew Selena had a weave. She just has a large head & face in proportion to her body. And the bloated days *covers eyes* ooooh, then it’s bobble head full on. But Ari has messed up hair. It got fried from all that dying it for Victorious over many years. So she needs to cover the whole thing, so they give her a lot more of it placed on that tiny self.

  • sochima

    just realize she has twin dancers like Beyonce

    • Mariah

      Yup. But they ain’t as good as Les Twins. These two are awesome B did a good job hiring them

  • BangBang

    That was kind of weird!
