    @MeloRocksarr, i agree with you because Kelly Rowland been back up singer and dancer since they was little and now that Kelly is out they needs to leave the girl alone and let her be free and besides Beyonce is happy for her that she’s out doing her and she is doing it well.

    I think Kelly did AWESOME but damn did she have to pre-record the shit tho. I mean I was going OFF for Kelly and then to find out she did that it was kind of like Kelly damn. But I digress. She still killed IMO. GO KELLY!!!!! Do your thing mama.

    [Reply]

    Toni Reply:

    @kekeluvsu,
    That was my only issue; The performance was great but I would’ve given her more props if she wasn’t lip synching. She was smart enough to pre-record it in a more beleivabe fashion where she’s interacting with the crowd but still that shows that she has a lack of confidence in herself to be able to sing and dance at the same time. That’s why her face was covered up with that large hat. I give her an 8 out of 10 just for that.

    @materialmayne Reply:

    @Toni, i agree with everything u said i was thinking the exact same thing. then i thought about it, she was doing ALOT of dancing. all artist prerecord their vocals before doing a song that has alot of choreo. even the “great” bey does it lol. she still murdered the stage, im so happy for her!

    @meme, She actually was lip synching. She recorded a live performance track, and added all the ohh’s and ayyess, to it. If you watch the part VERY closely at the part where she sing’s “motivation really high” she puts the mic down and the track says “Sing it ya’ll”. not hating on miss kelly was the performance was epic.

    Anyone who knows music and voice knows that she lip synced. For one…you don’t her taking any breaths. Its was too clean for all of the movement she was doing. Even Bey sounds like she is breathing and moving when she dances.

    [Reply]

    IAMMUSIC Reply:

    @life…., i agree, it was wayyyyyy to clean, especially for it to be kelly. She loses breath when she’s standing at a mic not dancin.

    @meme, Im a fan of kelly and your right she was lip singing. clearly when she took the mic away from her mouth, but yet her vocals were still going CLEARLY SHE WAS LIP SINGING. i love kelly but ive never none her to dance and sing at the same time and not sound like she’s running out of breath

    Kelly did sing this! Not tonite on stage though lol. Maybe earlier that day or the day before. Straight pre-recorded. Proof @ 5:47 in the video above.

    Trey’s Love Faces performance could have been better–Unusual was nice, and I enjoyed his part on Motivation. And I don’t care what people are saying, his hair looks good to me. As for Kelly, clearly we know she has the vocal ability. She put on a great dance performance, but that was pre-recorded. I peeped when she was suppose to be singing and didn’t have the mic up and when she was all over the place and sounding as if she were standing still. All in all I loved them two together. I was hoping they’d preform together.

    Kelly always lip sings a song for the first time live so she can perfect her live vocals for it she did it with when love takes over and like this bet was not the first time she sang like this on bet so don’t go there this a normality with her we all know she can sing
