    My god- Firework was painful. Why is she shouting?

    I don’t like all the little warbbles she does with all the notes.

    She can sing, obviously, but she def had a case of the “Doing TOO Much”-itis, and maybe a case of the christinaaugileratis as well. I know she desperately wants the world know she talented, but like mama says, sometimes less is more

    @jaydeeEm,

    lmao @ “Christinaaugileratis.” She can sing her butt off but I agree. Less can be more. That firework cover was way too much for my liking. She definitely has that Xtina mentality of attacking the song.

    You would never think she could sing like that, because Nicole always took the shine. Fireworks wasn’t the best cover, but Born This Way and All Of The Lights were Craaaaaaazy.

    I love this/ She has such good vocals. She just needs to think “less is more” because she overdoes a lot of vocals.

    Nice potential, but very very bad technique. She needs to work it out very seriously. It hurts to hear it.

    She can sing..and @jaydeeEM dont hate on Christina Aguilera. She cant be touched vocally by anyone else whos out now. Thats her style of singing. She likes to attack every word..and she has the range,volume and vocal skill do do so #IHateWhenNonSingersTalkShitAboutAVocalGreat

    I loved the ending note when she did “there’s nothing wrong with loving who you are” She definitely has a big voice, just needs more control over it. Other than that, it wasn’t bad.

  18. Um.Well.Sure.

    You guys have to remember when she was in the Pussycat Dolls, ALL she was allowed to do was belt and do vocal melismas all over the place in the background so she needs to find her solo voice I believe.

    Potential is there and she could be good if she focuses on the music and not all on looks.

    i like her im rooting hard for her but she need Alot of work. She has a voice she just need to control it and do baby steps with the vocal gymnastic. @dabxdon although christina has a great voice she does not sing the correct way her singing technique is not good. She just have a great tone to cover up all the ugly notes and theatrics she is doing with her voice. I dont think we have a great voice of our generation but people who do what they do well

    Melody, doesn’t need vocal lessons. this is how she sings. I’m pretty sure all of these haters on here are beyond jealous of her vocal abilities, Melody has come along way from the Dolls and I cannot wait for her solo material to hit the scene.

    great moments and absolutely dreadful moments but maybe she should have had more adlibs on the PCD songs. it would have been great.

    She sounds better soft, no need to yell. But I will say one thing, rather hear her screaming voice than Rihanna’s LIVE voice any day!
