Video: Ciara Performs ‘Gimmie Dat’ on ‘Ellen’

Ciara worked up a sweat on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” today while performing her Basic Instinct banger “Gimmie Dat” for the first time on television. Dressed in a midriff-exposing black shirt and silver-accented pants, the sexy singer showed off her slick choreographed moves with a coterie of male backup dancers. By the end, CiCi swapped out the fellas for the ladies, who joined her for some hardcore stepping.

Ciara and Jive Records are giving a lucky Rap-Up.com reader the chance to win an iPad loaded with her new album Basic Instinct and her latest music videos. Enter here!

    Basic instinct is gonna be a commercial flop. Currently #12 on itunes even tanks album is in the top 10 and he got absolutely no promo. Ciara is on track to sell between 40-60 thousand copies which is a FLOP. Basic Instinct has failed!

    Obviously she nailed the dancing, but I think the thing to really focus on for this performance is her vocals. She did damn good singing the song and dancing. I think she is underrated in terms of her performances…she’s never stiff and she always attempts to belt the song out. Also, she always tries to interact with the crowd. I may be biased because I’m a huge Ciara fan but I think she deserves a lot of credit for her stage ability.

  21. Dejwooooo

    I think Ciara is amazing…You don´t know what is good.
    In Slovakia we havent got any good singers. Hiips..sorry..We have got good Hip Hop Artist.
    “Rytmus” ….
    Ciara is great..she can dance,she is so pretty, and she can sing.
    Everybody in Slovakia listen Americian music!!..And we all love CIARA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    You should be proud of your artists….

  34. cari s.

    @HA! Lol. You serious? Keri Whoreson? Ciara is a way better performer than Keri will ever be.

    I see a lot of haters here taking about ‘flopping’. Album sales nowadays suck. Even Rifhund’s album sales are low. But let’s talk about Ciara’s amazing performance on Ellen.

    She sings much better live than SOME PEOPLE and dances better than all the other chicks in the game, point blank and period (my second fav dancer is Shakira), and this is coming from a non-stan. I stan for nobody actually (ain’t worth it), but still. :P
