Xtina's Legendary AMA Performance


I know I'm late on this but I just had to pay tribute to the best live performance of 2012. Christina Aguilera's Lotus medley shook my world to its very foundations earlier this week. I didn't know whether to laugh, cry or fall to my knees and worship. The performance is such a piping hot mess that it transcends criticism and becomes something quite magical.

There's nothing wrong with Xtina's vocal. She sounded fine and I approve of her eating for two since becoming a TV host. You'd take solace in food too if you had to listen to those cunts on The Voice all day. But what was that outfit? Who is responsible for the Madonna-circa-1997 choreography? And which fuckwit picked the songs?

Christina has only performed "Your Body" once on Jimmy Fallon - acoustically with office supplies, no less. Someone needs to tell the lazy bitch that it's not 2001 anymore. The buzz is gone. She is going to have to work for a hit. The AMAs would have been a nice promo opportunity for the track but she sings the "Lotus intro" instead. What the fuck? And then teams it up with "Army Of Me" and "Let There Be Love". Why not just belt out a "Woo Hoo"/"Vanity" mash-up? It would have been just as relevant.

The performance is infuriating but absolutely mesmerising. I can't get enough of this and pray for a Lotus tour. You just know it will redefine so-wrong-it's-right entertainment for decades to come!

"...infuriating but absolutely mesmerizing"

Basically my response to "Bionic"

You know what I love about that picture above? The girl with the dead eyes just to Christina's left. It's obvious that she's completely given up on life after being used as a punching-bag just before the show. You can see it in her eyes.

Why would performing songs from the last album be as relevant as performing songs from the album she released this week? What else could she has performed? Your Body is over so no point in doing that and she didn't want to do the second single, Just A Fool, because it's a ballad, so best doing songs that represent the album.

Also, was it necessary to tag Britney in this post?

It's ridiculous to sing two songs that nobody knows. It didn't promote the album, - people just wondered what the fuck she was doing. I think "Your Body" and "Just A Fool" would have been nice today because they're so different. She looked insane singing "Lotus Intro"!

What a deluded irrelevant flop she is!

Her latest SMASH was setting pretty at #102 on Wednesdays midweeks...

why is she wearing lady gaga's corset tho?

Lady Gaga's corset? Sorry didn't know Gaga had ever worn a corset by The Blonds before and I didn't know she had corsets trademarked....

Anyways I enjoyed the performance but you are absolutely right no one knew the songs and many didn't know what was up. Something like this would have worked on one of the morning shows in the US for their concert series stuff but she should have at least thrown in Your Body. Oh well at least Just A Fool is holding up on US iTunes and the performance on The Voice with Blake was pretty good. It's officially been announced as the new single which is probably her best bet for a hit right now in the US, I'm really rooting for her. Bitch just needs to get off her ass and do more promotion! Go to the UK, France, and Germany and get some Euro promo!!!!
