    RCA need to get it together and promote there artists. all of there artists have suffered due to poor promotion.


    Elvis Reply:

    @wonderland19, Thats the truth. Its a shame really that 2 Chainz “All I want for my birthday is a big booty hoe” Is more popular than the others performing…Just another example as too why RnB/Souls not as popular as it once was

    Ne-Yo did good, that dancer in red (the one with red hair) though. Yikes. :/

    Keyshia is killing those live vocals now. Proud of her. Props to the back up singers too.

    Elle Varner is my shit. Her album is fantastic and she was great. Looking fly too. And that guy beat boxing was fantastic. Think she’s used him before in other live performances. Not sure if it’s the same guy.
