  1. Even if they were beefing, Brendon and Breyton need to stay out of this.

  7. The second ‘laffy taffy’ part getting cut out in both performances so far is not my fantasy. It’s the best bit of the song!

    I liked it much more than the VMAs one, but it still felt a bit disjointed between showcasing her musicianship, her vocals, and her stage presence. I cut her slack because she's stepping out on her own + finding a cohesive blend of everything that she's talented at is always preferred than being one of these girls that do the bare minimum.

  12. There's a viral tweet going around that's basically saying "Y'all say Chloe does too much because you are used to your faves doing the absolute bare minimum." Which, tea.

    I preferred this performance to the VMAs as well. Especially loved the camp ridiculousness of the "Big Booty Sonata in C# Minor." I absolutely adore Chloe though and I appreciate the absolute reckless abandon and ferocity she is putting into these performances. I am chalking it up a bit though to finding her own voice and vibe as a soloist. There was such a confident, sexy, coolness to her performances with Halle, but here it comes across a little like she's desperately trying to prove something...which she absolutely doesn't have to because she's a force, the total package, and a talent that few in her field can even begin to match. I can't wait to see what she does next though, as I know it's going to be thrilling and unexpected.

  13. Heyyyy Miss Chloe!
     
  14. I think Halle grounds Chloe in a way that makes them stronger together, but it's so much fun watching Chloe go full popstar like that. She's so theatrical!

    There's definitely a way to incorporate her ability to use instrumentation and her vocal range together rather than separately, and then transition to a traditional pop performance. Gaga did it with the help of acoustic-piano intros, so I think Chloe has much room to further massage her potential live. Right now, both of her solo showings just seem to have sooooooo much energy and talent, but not the decisive execution to make them run coherently. I'm excited to see where she goes bc the video shows that she can make a popping visual. I just want to see that delivered in a live setting.

  16. Exactly, I was waiting for her to stop the piano and for dancers to appear or her to SLAY the next corus performing and this never happened. Maybe it's on me / us since we've come to expect it but maybe Chloe has other ideas, who knows. When she gets to successfully merge the two... whew!
