Watching Chris Brown and Usher’s performances at the 2012 Billboard Awards on Sunday night, I could not help but notice I had a similar feeling watching these two talents perform at Reggae Sumfest 2010.
And my opinion has not changed. Breezy you got mad talent but Usher ah di boss!
To me these days Chris Brown relies a bit too much on lip synching to focus on his dance moves. They are awesome, no doubt but it just comes off as too perfect … and no we don’t want that.
Usher is just a mature version of Chris. He is creative (loved that ‘mirror’ segment at Billboards) and he can dance and sang at the same time. We hear him breathing hard on the mike from time to time, but that’s ok, he’s human. We expect that.
C Breezy, take a page out of Usher’s book and finesse the craft of singing and dancing together. BTW Chris lip synching was a subject of hot debate online.
@joejonas What happened to people singing live
@Pink One day if i lipsync, i hope i do it as well as him
…and you know Chris had to reply right? his response:
Must be too bright outside! I’m finding the “shade” and keeping cool! Love and blessings!
that was on Sunday. By Monday he added:
“Don’t hold ya breath waiting for me to stop doing me!
and yes, he still answering the critics today.
Watch his performance here:
So like I said their performances on Sunday took me back a bit. Ya’ll it took me a minute to post cause I actually started watching video after video of Usher and Chris performing at Sumfest. Usher hands down was better. For one he performed longer, over and HOUR! He knew when to pause, when to interact with the crowd, when to tease the ladies, his experience definitely showed and like all the ladies you hear screaming. I was backstage losing my mind too
Chris did his thing but his prowess was more in dancing and giving freaky stares LOL and sticking out that damn tongue. Yes, I screamed for him too. But Ursh.. hmm hmmm hmmm
