Ciara Performs ‘I Bet’ on ‘LIVE! with Kelly and Michael’

Ciara kicked off Easter weekend with an early morning visit to “LIVE! with Kelly and Michael.” Fresh off announcing her May 4 album release date, she took the stage for the first televised performance of her single “I Bet,” which is currently No. 43 on the Billboard Hot 100.

Looking elegant in a long white Maison Rabih Kayrouz dress, she and her band performed the acoustic version of the Harmony Samuels-produced song, which will soon get a dance remix from Joe Jonas, T.I., and DJ R3hab.

She will launch her first tour in six years on May 3, a day before her sixth album Jackie arrives in stores. The title was inspired by her mother. “Now that I’m a mom, I can understand what it’s like to be in her shoes,” she said.

While she promotes the album, her father is serving as nanny to her nine-month-old son Future Zahir Wilburn. “He takes the job very seriously. It’s the cutest thing,” said CiCi.
