There's a live video from Geri's Instagram. The signal is terrible, but she was performing 'Look at me!'

Can't wait to see other footage.

I knew she would give the GAY audience what they wanted with Look at Me and It's Raining Men.

Great video!
I must say she's still one of those performers who should stick to playback and put on a visual show, like Britney or Cheryl.
She looked great but did she forget lyrics to LAM at the very start? Shame the chorus of AIC wasn't included, but then I thought that maybe she didn't sound her best? It's strange as during all those acccoustic performances/videos lately she sounded really good, her voice the best it sounded in years:/ and then I thought she sounded best at IRM but when she took high notes it wasn't too good:/ am glad she's back and hopefully it will encourage her to record more/complete album/go on tour solo or with GEM at least if Mel C still not eager to do so:)

She needs to move and dance, And yes, use a little playback. I love her, but I think she needs to be less Mel C and more Britney.

I love her. But. Yeah. I wish that went better.

With Look at Me and It's Raining Men, a bit of the problem is the DREADFUL arrangements. The live band's not fully responsible for that. What bargain bin did she have to dive to the bottom of to get that karaoke CD from hell?

Those synthesizers in It's Raining Men will haunt my nightmares.

Anyway. I wish the advances in her singing ability were more in evidence here...and I certainly hope she gets her on-stage confidence back. I love the new song, and I'm really rooting for her.

Wow she looked amazing but was she always that uncomfortable on stage? I remember her 2012 fiasco where she stood there not knowing how to move and simply stood there but this is her comeback. Shouldn't she hire someone to show her what to do?
Also, she sounded horrible. She sounded like a drunk fan performing along to the professional singer. Thank the gods for the backup singers.

She should stick to playback.

I like her working with a live band! Think there is a lot of potential there. But she just needs to do it a lot to get confident, be at ease with herself on stage and let go. She's being careful to keep everything together rather than enjoy herself.

Hope she does more - I'd take a lot of what Geri says in interviews with a pinch of salt. What she feels at one moment is often completely reversed soon after. She said that she wasn't the hot pants girl any more, then gets up on stage a few hours later and does Its Raining Men!

I was there last night and these videos don't even do her justice. Her voice was on top form, she seemed nervous and I wish she had given it a bit more sass, but as soon as she saw how much the crowd were loving her, you could see it in her eyes how happy she was. Maybe it's just the confidence boost she needed

It was packed, we were even told at one point as people had been queuing all day, they might be making it a members only night and we wouldn't get in, everyone was stressed, but luckily it turned out well for us all, the place was packed, her reaction was insane, and a apart from a few wrong words in look at me, she was sensational

:Angel: I thought even in the videos apart from occasional slightly off note she sounded fine. My husband hadn't heard Angels in Chains and not a huge fan, I played him that video and he said what a lovely song

I just played the live videos to some of my friends and they said I sing equality bad so I shouldn't be commenting on her singing abilities. However I'm not a "professional" singer.

I was there last night and the videos don't do justice. I was actually very surprised by her vocals. Didn't expect much, butshe delivered.
But yeah, she looked nervous on stage sometimes.

Oh dear! Not the Geri of old here. Bad vocals, relying on a sheet with words on and dad dancing. All very karaoke at the end of a drunken wedding kind of vibe.
The sentiment behind AIC is amazing and hope it raises lots of money. Now let's hope she starts afresh and bangs out some original catchy songs that she is famous for.

What the heck are people talking and bitching about? Bad vocals?? First off she's LIVE, and it sounds just like a live performance should sound. Secondly, it's our very same Geri as always - and to me she has improved a lot with the singing!

I think she LOOKED AMAZING, and did so well even though you could tell she was nervous. But I'm so moved after seeing how happy she was after the show, I'm sure fans and the energy made her wanna do this a lot more again *fingers crossed*

Vocal-wise I think her lows have improved a lot. Back then she used to struggle even with Look At Me but now it sounds good (except for the mistakes with the lyrics). The problem is the high notes. Maybe now she can reach them but she can't control them.

The body language was quite bad indeed. She looked nervous, bored and totally off it. Like she was doing a sound check and not the actual performance. She needs to work on that.

And if she still plans to release an album she should pick songs that use her low register and avoid the high notes. Also she should stop singing with that supposed new voice that she thinks it's cool but sounds terrible. Go back to your old voice,Geri, it sounds a lot better and now you can control it.

I think she sounded nice. Look At Me was pretty bad at times, but I think it's because of the quality of the videos, the missed notes must have been much less noticeable with the music playing properly. She needs to improve, but it's a nice start. I'm happy that she sings live now at least, since I hate playback. She should have filmed and uploaded it all like Melanie C does with her shows, but well, she needs time.

On another note, she did change her twitter username from @therealgerihalliwell to just @GeriHalliwell.

Ugh. Awful vocals. That's not singing, it's shouting!

Her voice is never 100% when singing LIVE, but she has given much better performances in the past.

This was just offensive.
