Video: Willow Smith Performs ‘Whip My Hair’ on ‘Ellen’

Willow Smith and Ellen DeGeneres

Willow Smith made her television debut on Tuesday’s “Ellen DeGeneres Show,” performing her breakout hit “Whip My Hair.” The 10-year-old fashionista kicked it off by singing a few lines from Rihanna’s “Only Girl (In the World)” before busting out her empowering anthem with her Warriorettes crew.

“I was really nervous,” said a hyperventilating Willow following the performance. Ellen chatted with her and presented her with a customized neck brace so she can continue whipping her hair in style.

Get wowed by Willow below!

    I’m speechless y’all. She gave us vocals, choreography and stage presence all at once without missing a beat. Beyawnce who? CiCi who? Kerioke who? Risus who?

    @Killed IT!!

    of course she can’t sing, but she’s cute and young and that’s what matters. Look at the comments people saying she slayed and sings better than rihanna (???) and how beyonce and ciara aint nothing…like seriously if she was 16 people would butcher her…but hey she has time to improve…

    [Reply]

  20. MATT DOFAT

    yea i agree with roxanne…she’s cute and that’s about it…people don’t want to say how she really was cuz she’s young so i won’t either…but i will say that ppl are CRAZY if they say she is close to or better than any artist out right now (okay maybe Ke$ha, lol)

  21. Kevin

    This is probably the worst song i have ever heard. No I am not joking. There is absolutely no message to the song and it doesn’t require any talent. Please world get back to real music we T-Pain-ing to much

    Her First performance was better than all of Rihanna’s performances. =D @roxanne it was good but no where near good enough to make me forget about beyonce and ciara. i give willow props because shes 9 but dont even go there. beyonce puts on a great live performance, and ciara lacks power house vocals but she does her thing live she always kills it.

    @MB92

    i never said she was better than beyonce or ciara, in fact im saying the exact opposite…all im sayin is that ppl are saying nice things about her because she’s nine…that’s all…and if you think her performance was better than anything rihanna has done then you either dislike rihanna or have bad taste in music #justsayin

  29. FREDDY

    i see a chris brown stan is STILL a little bitter about their faves career decline ^^^^^(three spots above)

    but it doesn’t matter if you think willow is the best thing since sliced bread or if you hate rihanna and her music and thinks she is untalented, there is NOO comparing a nine-year-old girl to a triple grammy, multi platinum award winning GLOBAL STAR…and that’s not me stanning for her that’s just obvious…i don’t know why haters must put the two against each other when willow stated before how rihanna was her inspiration…tsk..tsk..tsk

  30. ITZ ME BITCHH!

    why are we comparing her to rihanna?and the 1nz hating on rih,bey,and ci ci 50% of yall playlist has their music..lmao @ yall

  43. From Tokyo

    First: for people like “king” – you are evil to talk badly about a child – seek help. Also: you are not Rihanna so it’s sick for you to have such a reaction, like y’all all hurt that someone likes someone other than your favs. You preposterous stans make us get sick of the artists you claim to love. Also, Kevin – the message is to ignore haters like you and move on with your life, to brush y’all off. Sorry you missed that.

    With her voice: THAT’S what it sounds like when you REALLY sing during a performance, and she was nervous, but her potential shined through. If some of these other “stars” would really sing their songs on the mic when they perform then it would be a different experience (it would be on the whole without auto-tune, on albums for a start). For someone so young she has the whole package: good guidance for a start, good talent, good image. She was so cute and I like her dance crew! Hair and fashion is on point, too! Get it, Willow! You’re a star no matter what!
