Shakira Steals The Show With ‘Empire’ Performance

April 22 marked the first live elimination show on Season 6 of The Voice, which sent TJ Wilkins and Dani Moz home. It’s always sad to see contestants end their journey, but thankfully, Shakira eased the tense vibe of the night with a sexy performance in the middle of the results show.

I was shocked that you would allow Shakira to wear adult see through clothing on a young,and family show.How do you tell young girls,like ages 5 to13 ,like my grandchildren,wearing things like this is alright.yes she is a pretty young woman,but it was wrong for under age kids to watch.When you get questions of why she is showing her body parts,on a tv show that is suppose to be for family viewing,it went over the line for young viewers.

Some of you are so dumb. The song contains overlapping segments of her singing in the chorus. Do you expect her to do both in a live show? It’s a performance within the competition. She’s entertaining for heaven’s sake..

It would have been nice if she would have included her TEAM in her performance, but I guess that would have not been possible since she lip-synced her song. I would have not voted for her if she was a contestant. I find that many of the contestants are better performers than she is. But all said and done, she is a beautiful lady and you can not take that away from her.

What is a coach on the “Voice” doing by lip syncing ? I guess she really can’t sing!

I think TJ should win.. and it’s not right that people care if Shakira loses 2.. He is the best.
