  1. Well I agree to your previous post with the "dancer touching"... I've also noticed the "interaction" XD
  2. That video is so on point!!!! Thx A LOT for posting - it really should have more views! The Good: Dirrty & Maria (and some other songs) are visually great The Bad: Some ideas feel "standard" (like the YB-intro), short songs & well: She's not doing much on stage. The Ugly: Her vocals really need some rest/rejuvenation! The video above made clear, how rarely she sings in some songs like in the Dirrty outro, Your Body AND Accelerate <-- which both we still don't have any single GOOD performance of. Edit: Accelerate really sounds like being sung at a Karaoke Bar!!!
  3. @COOKIES: Thanks for your posts! I honestly can't deny that the pictures look iconic! But yeah, pictures are another thing than the actual show in motion (pictures) would be... and well, I just gotta mention: --> ANOM has teribble visuals: But other than that... okay, I can't get over "Accelerate", but yeah - Maria, Dirrty (!) and others are visually impressive - in stills from good angles at least.
  4. The "I don't cook"-part was soo refreshingly honest! Except for that, yeah
  5. Okay, I actually agree on the last sentence ;-) - but I kinda see some things a little different, maybe (?) .... 1) The production is NOT great: The stage looks empty to me in so many settings - probably in any setting except for Maria! She just has a huge LED screen. That's it! This "TV" is supposed to make up for some actual stage technique. (I don't expect the kinda show Brit was doing, but yeah I she had a better production she could be singing properly still & not just be "walking" the stage. 2) The doging notes thing: She really sounded hoarse during the interviews - I hope she's fine! She even cut the iconic "Dirrty belt" short - I am concerned actually. And yeah, even in Maria - she lowered the C#5-chorus which took a huge toll to the song, I think. Reflection worked fine with the head voice / falsetto instead of belting out the E5 - but being able to hit that E5 made her getting that Song for Mulan in 1999 - so she actually should hit it properly... honestly speaking. 3) There's not any song showing her full vocal potential. Just similiar to Liberation Tour which had a proper version of Maria back then.
  6. Okay, I'm still not losing faith / don't wanna to - just hope that it's some album shooting AND some magazine promotion for X7 at the same time Yeah, especially the confirmed (!) P!nk duett. This could be so huge for general public since P!nk is so huge (and mainstream too).
  7. Guuurl - Skinny-Tina is so over.... ... I really don't mind her weight / bodyshape whatever . Nobody shames Adele, but why always our gurl Cursed-Tina?! I really hope the photoshoot is for her (not so secret) X7 album... AND I really hope her to polish & perfect her vocals. Not (only) her looks. She could shine as whom she is/should be: The Voice of our Generation. In detail: I really was so happy to hear on Liberation Tour that her voice is a - let's be real - great condition! What she actually lacked - unfortunately - was some training/timing (yeah, even sometimes the lyrics ) on certain songs. For example - so unfortunate! - on FIL, her lead (!!!!) single her timing was random and vocals often a little rough towards the end. Already pointed out by BackToBacis right there (click!). To me, The Voice of our Generation, should at least be able to give a proper performance of her lead single. So let's hope for X8 - 'cause YB was never (til now!) & FIL was only once (Jimmy Kimmel) performed properly. Edit: If you think of Accelerate as Lead Single - go ahead - never been performed properly too.

    Well, I can just agree at your post, @BlancMac ... Easier to lie sounded soooo relaxed - even her (at that time) very raspy belting sounded relaxed - and could have added another nuance to Lotus. But maybe it was not even her choice not adding it. Her relation to RCAncient seemed even more "concerning" in 2012....

    Okay, this is maybe an UNPOPULAR opinion too, but: To me Xtina is more than ever about her attitude & her VOICE than EVER. If she would fully lip a song - she could just drop it from the list. We all have all the albums and can mime to them on our own. Honestly speaking I loved her added riffs and belting (especially in the final chorus) of Deserve on Tour - but I really wished she would have actually sung this masterpiece - not only some adlibs

    That's it! Thx for saying it so short & crisp! I've always noticed (and mentioned) there's something off with FIL on Tour and it's not "just" the key change / higher belting - it's also she does not know where to start! I mean, we all LOVE Xtine, but there are points to mention which have occurred especially the last few years.

    This is something about FIL I cannot get over: Why is there even a key change for the final chorus if she NEVER sings it live
  12. Not Ready To Make Nice - which sounded sooooooooooooo amazing on The Voice! I really would like the song if it was hers

    I absolutely agree! Honestly The Liberation Tour was quite great - and I don't know how or if she can even exceed that (in a realistic way). Like I've mentioned in another thread, I'm actually not sure if she's doing herself any favor with this residency.

    Album

    Okay, no. Liberation to me always felt like a compilation with songs collected & produced over the years. The album was/is kinda nice to see how she's evolved over the 6-year-hiatus. But: I wanna see a conceptual album again - and Liberation already has very, very loose structure in the tracklist. Even more random songs won't help that at all.
  15. I don't know, are you all really stanning for her residency? I'm not really happy with it as a career choice: She has fans around the world - especially in South America! Shouldn't she do some gigs here? Or maybe Europe, after a decade. If she actually releases a Spanish album, it wouln't hurt to promote it in Spanish speaking countries . I really cannot tell if the US fans are actually craving for a new show from her. Will it have any impact without new material? And personally: I'm not really excited since the chances of going there are like zero for a normal European like me.
