Ciara performed with Bow Wow, Omarion, and Chris Brown in the "Holladay Jam" show in Washington, DC. She was the only girl performing on the tour and apparently the little girls in DC weren't feeling her. Not because they think she's a bad singer or a bad performer but more so because she's dating Bow Wow.
This tweenage wasteland was probably the worst possible venue for Ciara, because (1) she's a girl, and (2) she's dating the show's most desired performer, headliner Bow Wow.
Two strikes against her, the critically anointed "Princess of Crunk & B" still came out swinging, crooning her cameo chorus to Missy Elliott's electro-banger "Lose Control." Clad in all black and aviator shades, she evoked a young Janet Jackson, circa "Rhythm Nation" -- a resemblance that wasn't merely sartorial. Like Jackson, Ciara's voice is smooth but thin, and her backing tracks did most of the work. But that didn't stop her from writhing and wriggling as if she's been taking belly-dancing lessons from Shakira.
And the audience? Totally unimpressed.
