Now you can finally see the difference between "LIVE" and not!
Finally? IYHML, UIBNM, One Love, FSG, Starting Over, No Me Ames, Escapemonos, Let's Get Loud, HIDDI, DIW, she performed all those songs live in the Love? era?!
The first part was not that great, but I liked the part from 2:18 til the end of the song. I liked a few other parts too, like at 1:38. In parts it sounds forced, she needs to let go more, but those few good moments are enough for me. She won't get any better live, if she doesn't practice it! It's better than UIBNM at the Mohegan Sun concert imo, that was a real mess.
I hope she at least does a few songs live on tour, so she gets more practice. I remember she sounded a lot better near the end of the 2007 tour, compared to the first few concerts.
And not only the ballads! I'm Real (Remix) & Ain't It Funny (Remix) and other urban songs should be live! Those songs don't work with a choreography anyway imo.
