Ciara and Nicki Minaj Perform at BET Awards

Ciara

Ciara slayed the stage with her sizzling set at Sunday’s BET Awards. Following a heavily-censored verse from a blonde Nicki Minaj, CiCi emerged to perform her single “I’m Out.” She nailed her moves and showed off her abs during the dance-heavy number before delivering her hit “Body Party.” Watch her turn up.

    @YES, SLAY THEM CIARA. Nicki was not needed. So over her. She is not a rapper and she wins rap awards, but she will never win a grammy.

    @Real Life, clearly your opinion isn’t valid just by the contradiction that you just made..

    @Real Life, Speak for yourself. And you don’t know what the future holds for Minaj. She could come out with one of the best rap albums of all time and win plenty of Grammy’s. Stop being a hater.

    @Real Life, I haven’t seen Nicki do anything in a long time and the few seconds I did just see (in trying to skip her part) reminded me why. Are her fans serious? Is SHE serious? This can’t be rap.

    the crazy thing is Ciara performs this good or better at every performance. she killed it.

    [Reply]

    Real Life Reply:

    @BeBo, yup and people wear to dumb to know she had talent all along. Beyonce and Kelly have said it many times. And that’s why rihanna come at her b/c she is a threat.

    @Real Life, leave Rihanna alone, just compliment Ciara without mentioning Rihanna! If your reason is why Rihanna go after Ciara, whats Ciara’s reason for going after Rihanna???? ( Ciara is not a victim ) in this feud between the two of them.

    [Reply]

    SdotB Reply:

    @Tasha3, first of all, she NEVER went after Rihanna…Ciara has only been defending herself if she was questioned about the situation in interviews…most of the time she just brushed it off and changed the subject…Rihanna goes out of her way to diss Ci Ci…

    people give Nicki a lot of shit but honestly i am SO glad that she going back to the way she was prior to Super Bass. All her features have been great,and I like the new toned down look. She just sat on the steps and rapped, I like it. Keep doing your thing.

    Ciara was good too.

    OMG, Ciara just showed everybody in the world why Rihanna will “never ever” be on her level as a performer. Eat that Rihanna you will never be able to make magic on the stage or sound good live during your performance biatch!

    BeBo Reply:

    @Evolution, its no reason to bring up Rihanna but yes Rihanna cant perform as good as Ciara her career is more successful but I think that’s just the luck of the draw.

    @Evolution, its comments like these that leaves a bitter taste in my mouth. Plz dont get me started with everything rihanna has accomplish that ciara will never in 2 life times. lets just let ciara have her time.

    prINCE OF POP Reply:

    @meme, ok ri ri she still out performs you just because u and your label pick the right songs dont mean ishhh… chile sit down… ciara came out with a number 1 and stayed true to herself and has never really fallen off… rihanna you have just been consistant with the trends… and your label making u the “black Madonna” but u arent that tho

    [Reply]

    MonkeyMan Reply:

    @meme, Thats irrelevant! Rihanna has had more success only because her music and image appeals to more to white audience and pop market. Ciara appeals to the urban, hood audience. She reps for the realness.

    2 different worlds but Rihanna is not on Ciara’s level as an entertainer. And she will never be! Realness!

    She made me so freaking proud tonight! I have been a fan since day one and alot of ppl always give her a hard time and looooove to talk shit about her but I will always defend her. It was great (and funny) seeing all the tweets and IG post anticipating her performance! It was even greater see all the positive reviews about her performance. I’m glad everyone finally got to see why I love her so much. She is so underestimated but I feel like tonight things have changed tonight. She def won old wishy washy fans back and also gained a lot of new fans;-) this was awesome promo for the album too! It jumped 300 spots on the iTunes album chart!!!!

    This was Ciara’s night….HANDS DOWN. Great marketing strategy to drop the video then turn around and perform it ALONG WITH the hit that sky rocketed her back into America’s good grace. The hard work and promo doesn’t stop here though. With a week until the release of her CD, CiCi needs to hit EVERY prime-time show to REALLY push her CD. Her CD is pretty solid, and with Body Party SLAYING airwaves STILL, Ci has a good chance of officially labeling her self as an “successfull comeback”. She deserves it. Kudos to CiCi and her management for FINALLY figuring out what works best.

    I use to say this chick couldnt sang but now with this album I see a mega star in the works. She definitely won me as a fan tonight. I’m usually a Beyonc and Rihanna fan and now I’m a Ciara fan, theres room for all of them to do their thang and I am proud of how far she has come.

    I’m impressed with the 2013 BET Awards production this year. It could rival that of the MTV Video Music Awards. The stage setup didn’t look low budget it was very organized and it ran smoothly besides, a few minor mishaps but overall it was a great show.

    The Dancing Slayed. But She wasn’t singing live in this performance..She was singing over a pre-recored backing track. Her mic was on and her breathing was real but she wasnt really singing,, good performance though.

  39. KJS

    Everyone on here saying that Ciara wasn’t singing live, please have several seats. Anyone who has sung onstage before will tell you she was in fact singing live. There was a background track, but it only kicks in when you are not singing, therefore you would not have heard all that breathing, nor the wind blowing in the mic as she danced.

    You don’t believe me?? Re-watch Chris Brown and Mariah Carey’s performances. Then you will know the difference.
