She said it was too loud and she couldn't hear herself and thought she was very pitchy. She was completely honest about how she felt. Her smile beamed when we said how good she was but you could see she was really disappointed in herself and the whole thing. She was lovely though and wrote us a personal congrats message for our wedding which she picked out the wedding dress postcard from the Look At Me CD to write it on. I thought that was a real nice and genuine Geri thing to do
i don't mean to dish cause i think she's brave and very vurnerable with preforming live.
But in advance i don't who i told here: 'she will have trouble with her earpieces if she sings some dodgy notes' and look at this. she rehearsed a week long AND on the night her earpiece doesn't work. hmmm. that's oldest trick in the book, Mariah Carey does it all the time.
the thing i think is she shouldn't want to try and be who she isn't. She isn't Adele. She isn't a decent songwriter. She can write a hell of good popsong but don't try to make it out that is more that than that. And she's a hell of preformer with wicked concepts (legs, banana, ...) My humble advice is stick to that 'cause that is what you do best and evolve IN that way not in a different direction.
imo she should find a way between preforming and singing live - a kylie minogue way not a Britney way.
but again, just my two cents. loved her bravery and vurenability
