| Filed under: Lil' KimCyndi Lauper

Lil Kim joined Cyndi Lauper for a duet at the concert celebrating Nelson Mandela's birthday at Radio City Music Hall in NYC this weekend, and….

It's is actually pretty freakin' awesome!

The two did Lauper's Time After Time mashed up with Kim's Lighters Up.

Obviously Kim is not a singer, but that actually works to her advantage in this performance. There's something really raw and vulnerable and pretty about her singing.

This is the most "real" we think we've ever seen her be!

    Are you for real? She sounds awful…your taste in music is sooo bad!

  12. 12

    Uhhh…. I like my Lil Kim nasty…rapping with a boob hanging out and a nip cover. She's pretty & talented, but actually singing is not her forte. It was actually sorta really bad. jusssss saying.


  13. 13

    omg she is the worst singer ive ever heard in my life. that was awful to listen to i had to turn it off

  14. 14

    She looks pretty but sounds awful.

  15. 15

    I like them together.

  16. 16

    I LOVED IT!! She can sing good…and Cyndi killed it tooo…thanks perez!!!

  17. 17


  18. 18

    Cyndi KILLED IT!!! She sounded awesome doin Kim's bit

  19. 19

    I agree that it is a pleasure to see a live performance which is not lip synched. I found this enjoyable. Lil Kim looks nice dressed that way.

  20. 20

    CIndy shouldn't have done this.

  21. 21

    pretty good

  22. 22

    Re: getOffiTalready – but I agree with you 100% on that shiz!

  23. CMER says – reply to this


    I really like it!

  24. 24

    I give a C+ because she almost there I'm mean if she had some vocal training it would have been on fire but it was like when you go to the beach and someone has a guitar at a bonfire. It was okay, lil kim did look pretty.

  25. 25

    I hate when musicians do stupid shit like this just to make headlines & appear "cutting edge." This was terrible… I couldn't make it through 2 minutes.

  26. 26

    They sound like two cats in heat.

  27. 27

    That was alright! Lil Kim looks really pretty, she cleans up real well!

  28. MsBre says – reply to this


    That was truly beautiful. If you embrace a concert and not lip-synching like so many of today's youth then you will enjoy it. A great pair up! Thanks Perez

  29. 29

    omg wow lil kim should sing more often.

  30. 30

    hoes shud stikk witt watt dey kno best *hint* *hint* Lil' Kim

  31. 31

    i love lil kim…. but that was the worst performance i've ever heard.
    i can't imagine what the audience was thinking… ek!

  32. 32

    Lauper gives off the attitude in public of being nice when in reality she is a heartless bitch

  33. 33

    Ew that was awful! Cyndi Lauper's voice sounds controlled compared to Lil Kim's!

  34. 34


  35. 35

    loved it. Lil Kim certainly rarely ever sings…I think if she trained her voice a bit more she would be pretty descent at it…then again you don't have to sing to be a rapper to there you go.

    She looked good too…unlike her recent trainwreck looks.

    How gorgeous was Cyndi. She's amazingly talented…shame she is always one step in the shadows.

  36. 36

    I was scared to listen to it but you're right, Perez, it worked. I really enjoyed it. Kim's raspy rawness actually complimented Cyndi's voice. Beautiful rendition. What loveliness a live performance can do in original creation.

  37. 37

    wow. that was even worse than i expected. AND as much as i love cyndi lauper - she has always been a shitty singer. ugh. two amateurs

  38. 38

    but, lil kim looks sooo good

  39. 39

    I can't stand it. Kept skipping parts to get to something good. Then I just had to shut it off. Love these girls…so I hope the audio is just garbage.

  40. asb25 says – reply to this


    shes awful

  41. 41

    It was sweet that she tried to sing a song for Nelson Mandela but she needs to stick to rapping. She cannot sing at all!

  42. 42

    Amazing! Brought Me 2 Tears!

  43. 43

    Re: getOffiTalready – I never thought Brittney was a good singer either she just does good entertainment!

  44. 44

    The first part of this shizzle is terrible. And the second part is barely tolerable. Little Kim gets an A for adventure and a D for DAMN my ears hurt after that. ;)

  45. 45

    I liked it. Kim looked beautiful (very Diana Ross) and her vulnerability was sweet.

  46. 46

    Eh, mixed feelings. She was horrible in the beginning. And not very good throughout, but it was nice not to see her dressed like a tramp. She sounded really nervous in the beginning.

  47. Laury says – reply to this


    You're kidding, right Perez? She can't sing for shit. Queen Latifah she ain't. She should stick to rapping.

  48. 48

    this was a gorgeous rendition, Cyndi is a true entertainer, with a very special voice. Lil' kim may not be a singer but she sounded lovely, and I give LIL' KIM SO MUCH CREDIT for working really hard, she is a rapper who is trying to evolve. Thankx Perez for this video xo

  49. 49

    Lil Kim wasn't so great..but she tried. Cyndi Lauper was GREAT! Love you Cyndi!!!!

  50. 50

    nice that she's trying something else but she sounds scared to death…not feeling it

  51. 51

    I agree
    I think that was original and totally awesome
    Never saw Kim looking good either but i have to say she looks beautiful here

  52. 52

    Lil Kim was hot on Dancin' with the Stars, BUT …

    Time After Time is one of those songs without a melody. Lil Kim's cellmates could sing it. Hell, I could sing it and I am an old man.

    Reminds me of seeing Rod Stewart at the Hollywood Bowl when he let his daughter 'sing' two songs - "True Colors" and "Brass in Pocket" - both melodyless pieces that require the touch of an artist to make them anything beyond boring. She sucked, but when she past by our seats afterwards, I could have sworn I heard her say to her fat friend, "I TOLD those bitches Daddy would let me sing at the Hollywood Bowl!"

  53. 53

    Actually, Lil Kim sounds a bit like Tina during the chorus. Kind of wierd. She looking sooo nervous too.

  54. 54

    it sounded alot better then i thought it would

  55. 55

    Awww. That was kinda nice. I just can picture Kim from her heyday ago goin "stick ya for ya cream and your riches, zha zha gabor, demi moore prince diane and all them rich biches"

  56. 56

    i admit she looks pretty but she has more business singing in a kareoke bar at 3am wankered than in front of thos poor people. I love love love Cyndi Lauper but even her voice was an epic fail there. Wouldnt be so harsh but she made her career out of this…

  57. 57

    The word "transcendent" comes to mind.

  58. 58

    I can't wait to see Cyndi Lauper as a regular on Bones this coming season!!!

    Cyndi's and Lil Kim's Vocies dont sound that good together…

  59. 59

    Wow perez. You really stretched far for that one. I know you were trying to be nice but uh…yeah…

  60. 60

    Lil Kim sounds like she is out of breath. But when she hit most high note, she sounds good

  61. 61

    lil kim can't sing for shit that was fucking terrible

  62. 62

    are you kiddin perez? lil kim sounds like a sexually assaulted cat

  63. 63

    She can't sing, But she looks good and she does have this vulnerable thing about that is so cute! I'm glad she did this, more peopl in the rap community should do this type of thing!

  64. 64

    Absolutely awful, quivering vocals! Out of key because she's destroyed her nose and can no longer breathe correctly. After years of skin bleaching, she's become a little white girl and is trying to sing instead of rap. She's too white to rap but white enough to sing. Rapping became too difficult as she got older and so was being black.

  65. 65

    Props to Lil Kim for trying, but you can hear in her vibrato that she was soooo nervous. And if she had any real voice training in the past, she would have known that BREATHING is the way to control your nerves & voice.

  66. 66

    lil kim sounds out of breath…wtf? bb needs to stop with all that surgery too…

  67. 67

    There is nothing raw, vulnerable and pretty about her performance. It wasn't good at all =/

  68. 68

    They both sounded AWFUL, but I have to hand them there dues because for some reason they both made it work. Kim looked fantastic and not so plastic and Ms. Lauper looked great as well.

  69. 69

    perez. are you freakin' CRAZY.
    lil' kim sounds like CRAP.

  70. 70

    Talk about a milestone moment…that was very beautiful:) It always cool when "old" and "new" school artists come together. Bravo!

  71. 71

    Re: kumbyah – Correction: (It's) always cool when "old" and "new" school artists come together.

  72. 72

    Lil Kim looks so good! U go momma

  73. 73

    Cyndi Lauper was great in it. Lil Kim was absolute SHIT. Please don't sing again. Her voice was just disgusting.

  74. 74

    why did they even let her sing to begin with……….

  75. 75

    As usual, you don't know what you are talking about. How does not being able to sing 'work to her advantage'? She sounds awful and there is nothing vulnerable or endearing about it. It's just bad.

  76. 76

    cyndi is the shit, but you are TRIPPIN if you think that wet rag can keep up at ALL.

  77. 77

    freaken amazing, i love both of these women

  78. 78

    AWFUL! Out of all the collaborators Cyndi has done the song with she resorted to this? Was there some sort of payola here? She could have and should have done it solo. SO SAD. Kim pretty or not, you hate your race and went white and plastic, and agree that may not have helped your voice or fan base.

  79. 79

    I love Kimmie! Original and totally awesome!

  80. 80

    Kim looks the prettiest (classiest) I've ever seen her look

  81. 81

    Wow I did not know Cindi could perform like that.

  82. 82

    That hurt, lots.

  83. 83

    Wow! That was excellent!

  84. 84

    yeah this was pretty painful to watch

  85. 85

    I wished they'd let Cyndi sing something other than her '80s songs. She has such great material!!!

  86. 86

    Her voice sounds completely different than when she raps. It's alot more eclectic.

  87. 87

    As for Kim, voice lesson's are needed. I am pretty sure that is why she thought she could sing. Not bad, but more training definately needed for improvement. As for Cindy, her rap was on point! She did VERY well with her rapping. I t was a good performance though but did anyone else notice how Lil Kim is tryin to change her image?

  88. 88

    Re: Shut.Tha.Fuck.Up – Due to numerous plastic surgery transformations.

  89. 89

    Re: getOffiTalready – You're are right about Brit. Kim has more talent than that piece of trash.

  90. 90

    People, people, people…just b/c black people get plastic surgery does not mean they hate their race. That's not fair to say. So I guess it's fair to ask this question then: Do white people hate their race because they tan? Does that mean they want to be black? Why do ww get collagen injections in their lips? Why do ww get ass implants? Just about every ww in Hollywood miraculously has an ass now. A lot of ww have plastic surgery done to gain these features and it never once crossed my mind that these women hated their race, or were trying to be "black". I just thought they admired some of the physical attributes black women have. There's nothing wrong with that. Hell, it is a total compliment. Mike J. caught hell for having a legitimate skin disease and for having plastic surgery done, and that was bullshit while everyone else was being a hypocrite. I think people should really think before they speak. Off hand I can think of more than a few ww in Hollywood that had one if not all of those features done:
    Lisa Rinna, Melanie Griffith, Shauna Sands, Meagan Fox, Fergie, Jessica Biel, Ashlee Simpson and almost everybody tans–EVERYBODY (with the exception of Nicole Kidman and Dita Von Teese). And the list goes on…..
    Listen to Mike and start with "the man in the mirror."

  91. 91

    "There's something really raw and vulnerable…" Yeah it is, caus it sounds like her voice is about to crack. She looks good tho, but maybe take some more lessons and keep quiet untill ready to sing for real.

  92. 92

    Wow a fake ass bxtch actually has a real voice…too BAD it suxks! (Lil Kim)

  93. 93

    That was great, yeah the singing wasn't the greatest by Lil Kim but that wasn't the point, to me anyway. I really enjoyed it, it was very raw and vulnerable and that is was made the performance.

  94. 94

    Ya'll some haters, clean out your ears, Lil Kim did good, she wasnt amazing but she did good, and I dont even like her.

  95. 95

    Luv it…

  96. 96

    She did her best , probably better than any of you tone deaf dumbasses.
    I think it sounded nice (:
    Go lil' Kim (:
    Go Cindi !
    Girls just wanna have fun peeps !

  97. 97
