Nah it’s boring. The song is one of the worst she’s released. Meanwhile there’s no video for Freak Me

Honestly disappointed by the video. Lack of dance moves. Single venue. Too dark (lighting).

I agree, apart from the dancing. I simply love watching her move. But it would've been nice to see her do something different. More cheerleading dancing.

^ I felt it was a mediocre performance even though I love both songs.

Her performances lately are a mess. I don’t think she is a very good performer tbh

The performance was cute, but it doesn't suit Ellen's stage tbh. It should've been performed on a bigger stage.

Also, her pre-recorded vocals sound noticeably different from her adlibs/live vocals - so they kinda need to fix that.

I don't agree with some people who say she's not a good performer. She's a good performer, a great one I have to say!

Sometimes, it's just her choreography & stage direction doesn't translate well in a live setting - and it actually applies a lot to some of Parris Goebel's choreography (she's the one who choreographed "Level Up") - it looks great in music videos & dance performance videos, but when you bring it into a live TV performance, it could look messy. It might require a couple of takes & clever camera work in order to make it look good (see: any K-Pop TV performances in Korea).

She was never a good vocalist live. She’s a good dancer in camera but she doesn’t seem to concentrate when it comes to performing live and singing and dancing.

I think she concentrates, but too much on dancing. Janet lip syncs but makes it work. But with CiCi, there’s too much disconnect between her backing track vocals and her live shouty parts, as abi said.

I really wanted to like this song, but I am underwhelmed. It's cute at best.

All this could be fixed by using a louder backing track

It's a good song , but like Level Up, it sounds a bit dated. Also, I'm getting a bit of Keri Hilson from this?
