    Honestly Perez I usually love your music choices, but this doesn't seem too great to me….better than Ke$ha of course, but not faboosh.

  2. 2

    we? who? i skip :)

  3. 3

    Sad she didn't win nethin!!

  4. 4

    little girls practicing in the mirror with hairbrushes sound better then that……

  5. 5

    Was this post sarcastic? She is/was horrible live!

    I agree with Sparky3J, usually your musical choices are dead on, but seriously I don't agree when it comes to TS. She can put on a show, but seriously her voice isn't good, and its worse when it's live, her voice last night was off key throughout her performance

  7. 7

    She's not that great live but this is one of her best performances!!

  8. 8

    boring, next please

  9. 9

    She is not good live. She is a great songwriter and pretty girl, but she needs to stop singing.

  10. 10

    THIS is showmanship? Really?!

  11. 11

    Not my favorite performance of TS. I felt like she was trying to compete with Pink at the grammys. (Seriously, Pink's performance was epic!) Her performance consisted of a float through the crowd, costume change, leading a parade, dancing like a punk rocker, then being carried off by a crowd.

  12. 12

    She may be "cute" and lovable, and all that, but she's a musical hack — that stuff is essentially muzak with a good drummer.
    And her voice is pretty weak.
    But you keep on pimping her, Perez, cuz that's what you do best.

  13. 13

    I like her performances but this one was not her best. She always does wardrobe changes, I've come to expect it. She just didn't seem very into it this time around. But I still love her and the performance was okay.

  14. 14

    I'm surprised you didn't bitch about her for not wearing a kermit the frog outfit or a telephone on her head….

  15. 15

    Perez, we all know TS pays you to post about her. Give it up already, as she is TERRIBLE!

  16. 16

    she is good live, but not great, she cant hit the big notes and goes flat. im a fan but you have to admit she isnt the best live

  17. 17

    Her singing was not bad live… Better than Ke$ha for sure… But, what he is talking about was her performance… Girlfriend puts on a SHOW!

  18. 18

    Taylor Swift is one of the worst live performers out there. It is quite clear that her voice on her albums benefit from a good engineer. She sings off key way too much live. Theatrics can't hide that. Perez, I know you give her good pub because she is your friend, but you lose credibility on this big time.

  19. 19

    THIS mediocre CRAP is 'showmanship'? And you have the nerve to insult GRACE JONES?? You're really losing your touch, Chubbez.

  20. 20

    She sucks! She needs to stick to pop music because that's what she is.

  21. 21

    Shoot me, but these geeky woman bores me to tears . . .

  22. 22

    She needs to go away. She doesn't deserve anymore awards. So awful!

  23. 23

    Re: Robbbbo – Agree.
    Remember her ridiculous live run/sing through the NYC subway that time????

  24. 24

    Tone-deaf again — definitely something to be said for lip-syncing!

  25. 25

    Holy crud, pitchy much? The CIA should use this as tactics to break a man down. She's been horrible live at every performance I've seen, I keep watching hoping for a good one but I give up.

  26. 26

    Again stop kissing up to so many artists who is not worthy. Taylor is good but dang…what does she wants to be … A ROCKER, POP OR COUNTRY SINGER? She killed country music…i love country music but this here is garbage.

    AND SHE WAS FLAT THE ENTIRE SONG. I give her props for actually singing but she was off key

  29. 29


  30. 30

    She is trying to over shadow the fact she can't sing by giving over the top performances!

  31. 31

    It's as if she uses major theatrics to try and cover up her flat, ear-piercing singing. And it does not work!

  32. 32

    she sucks and didnt win anything last night…hahahahahahahaha!

  33. blam says – reply to this


    the emperor's new clothes, about sums it up…for all of todays music

  34. 34

    she was awful. she was off key the whole time.

  35. 35

    she sounds bad live and she was trying to follow pink with the dress change and the floating thingy

  36. 36

    Do you people know how hard it is to sing live? Under so much pressure infront of a huge audience? She did fantastically.

  37. JoeyW says – reply to this


    Bitch please, she can't even sing live! Carrie Underwood and Miranda Lambert have showmanship, Taylor Swift does NOT!

  38. 38

    She was amazing last night. She does not have the best singing voice, but neither does Madonna and Brit. All three are amazing entertainers but only mediocre singers. Love Taylor's energy!!

  39. 39

    THAT was showmanship? You also signed Sliimy to your "record label".

  40. 40

    I love Tswift but she's not good live. She's a great songwriter but that's really it.
    And if I'm being honest, I hate when she thrashes around like that? I just looks dumb. She's like, 'Now, let me throw around me large, blonde hair'

    Carrie Underwood has showmanship. Her performance was flawless. She's not just a cute face. She's a cute face with a whole lot of talent!

  41. 41

    She is a medicore singer at best……..

  42. 42

    Dear Perez: Thanks for proving why you have no business being a judge on American Idol! Or being involved in the music industry, full stop.

    This girl is jut BAD singing live and her lack of stage presence doesn't help her out at all. Definitely the worst performance of the night. Well, Luke Bryan was just about as awful. Best New Artist?? WTF is wrong with people????

  43. 43

    She sucks

  44. 44

    Songs about Puppy Love,Love Notes,Crushes,Fairy Tales and Prince Charming this is Bubble Gum Country/Pop and won Grammys…THANKS KANYE!!!

  45. 45

    Love her. Love.

  46. 46

    Yep, she should stick to song-writing. Why are you kissing her a$$, Perez?

  47. 47

    that was amazing :) she's getting better singing live!

  48. 48

    ya know for all you people who hate on taylor swift. I'd like to see your grammys, record contract and ridiculous fanbase. I'll be waiting!…………….

  49. 49

    OMGSH this just shows how great she is :) I don't know what people are saying if they don't think she can sing live- absolutely amazing :) Loveeeeeeeeee you taylor and of course perez :) n x

  50. 50

    You can throw lights, a moving stage, and loud music, that doesn't change the fact that she can't sing, especially live. She's a sweet girl, nice roll model, but talented, not that much. Tragic

  51. 51

    Carrie Underwood makes history last night by winning a second Entertainer of the Year award (not to mention her breathtaking vocal performances solo and with Miranda Lambert) and this is what you've got to write about? You're pathetic … and a paid-off hack. How does it feel to be in somebody's pocket? Must get pretty cramped in there.

  52. terp says – reply to this


    Carrie has been doing something similar while in a truck over the audience

  53. 53

    THIS is how NOT to perform. one of the flattest performances of her career. I'll give her the fact that she was better than her Grammy performance which was just horrid! With all the great things that happened at last night you chose this? wow. does her Daddy pay you too?
    Taylor needs to chose a genre and stick to it. and preferably that genre will be POP because she is ruining country music. I'm so glad i didnt have to see her "OMG I WON?!" face again. She sat in her seat like a seat filler which is what she is at best in the country music world.

  54. 54

    ok seriously I dont know what you guys are talking about, taylor swift can swing. Yeah carrie underwood can hit higher notes better. but she taylor can sing. and shes not trying to copy pinks grammy performance. Taylor swift has been hanging her outfits on stage about 2 years ago, and it started with either shouldve said know or love story, not sure. but you can youtube it. A lot of people change on stage. and the 2nd obvious reason why she is not copying pink is the fact that pink hung from a curtin, taylor is on a floating stage, not to mention she has support on her back. if she wanted to outdo pink she wouldve not had the back support or even the rails. people do stuff like this and go around the crowd. as the fact of taylor acting like a rock star??? no she always moves around stage like that and shakes her head. but hey if any of you can sell as many cds and concert tickets, or win as many awards, then you have a right to judge her, and im not some 13 yr old girl defending taylor bc shes cool. im 20 and im defending her bc shes a great role model, and writes and sings amazin songs.

  55. 55

    Seriously the interpretation is flat, she could use some singing classes and she looks like she's on autopilot : she shows no emotion.
    Il like her but this performance is highly uninteresting

  56. 56

    This is fucking ear-rape. Why don't you post Reba McEntire's performance from last night instead? She actually can sing, entertain an audience without excessive theatrics, and pick good songs.

  57. 57

    What an incredibly BAD rip-off of Pink's performance.

  58. 58

    Re: terp – Yeah … Carrie sings in a flying truck … at her concert … but at least she sings … and she doesn't feel compelled to stomp around and fling her ratty hair around to cover her bad vocals. If it wasn't for the choir this would have been 100% awful. When are you Taylor fans going to face the fact that this girl cannot sing? I mean really … there should be a 12 step program for you people.

  59. 59

    Oh Perez, you and your BS. This girl cannot sing well live at all. Sorry, she seems like a sweet little girl but a good live performer she IS NOT. If you want to give props, you should be calling out Miranda Lambert, she is really a COUNTRY artist, not a pop princess. I don't even like country music but Miranda is the real deal.

  60. 60

    OMG i love you for posting this video!!! MY FRIENDS ARE SINGING BACKUP FOR HER IN THE CHOIR!…except they aren't all from San Diego. My friends are in an a cappella group called the Scattertones and they are from UCLA! They performed with the Tritones. Sadly, the "Tritones of San Diego" decided not to give them recognition…how selfish!

  61. 61

    what a bunch of crap, you hate on ke$ha but then you like this BS

  62. 62

    wow. i am seriously nauseous after listening to that. it brought back nightmares of what she did at the grammys…

    come on perez. i know you know good music. are these hacks paying you or something?

  63. 63

    She sings live in the clip? You've just given me all the reason I need to not watch it.

  64. 64

    I will admit that her vocals at the beginning were not good at all. She didn't sound like a professional, however by the end I was in tears, idk why but it really touched me and I love her for this one. I seriously am very happy after this. And to everyone out there saying negative things about her, get over yourselves, and get off of your fat lazy asses and do something with your life. She's young and she's making a living out of what she loves and she's positive and she's beautiful inside and out, you people should have the same spirit that she has and see where it gets you. Go Taylor!

    Her singing sucks,she has no vocal range,her songs all sound the same.She nees to stop trying to sing and just admit she has no talent.

  66. 66

    I'm one of the biggest fans of Taylor and I know her faults and I know her strengths. She is a fucking AMAZING performer and deserved Entertainer of the Year.

    No. She isn't the best singer. I was the first person who was outraged when Taylor won Top Female Vocalist over Carrie at the CMA's. Carrie deserves the utmost respect for her vocals but Taylor reins absolute supreme when it comes to visual entertainment during a show. Carrie can sing her ass off and is an amazing vocal talent, but her shows are just that. Her singing. Which isn't a bad thing.

    Taylor has interludes, costume changes, she does an entire song in the rain, a projector stage, she moves into a random part of the nosebleeds for an entire song so her fans who weren't close enough to stage can still see her up close. Taylor. Deserved. Entertainer of the Year.

  67. 67

    You should post some real singing from the ACM like Carrie and Miranda explosive opening performance. now that's what I call singing. So happy Carrie won entertainer of the year and Miranda Lambert Female vocalist. Finally the right persons won. Taylor was better than her usual self. Auto tune must have been on last night.

  68. 68

    it was better than the grammys
    but theres still MUCH more room for improvement

    still love u taylorr

  69. 69

    Taylor Swift is an amazing singer/song writer/performer. You can't tell me that every single singer has a perfect performance every time. Taylor is not perfect, like everyone else in this business. Maybe it wasn't her best performance of all time, but it was still good. Do you know why it was good? Because she went out there in front of millions of people doing what she loved for herself and her fans. She is genuine and talented. People who don't like Taylor shouldnt'comment because her fans don't want to hear your ignorant rants.

  70. 70

    LMAO!! She's a joke! Winless and Carrie kicked her sorry a$$ all over the awards. It's a shame people think she's actually talented.

  71. 71

    i love taylor she's amazing! probably one of her better live television performances. I gotta say, she sounds better live in person than on tv performances.
