WHY DO PEOPLE DO THIS STUPID SH%T! How the hell could anyone compare the two:

Ariana Grande is just 20 yrs old, and at the beginning of her career.

Shakira has been in the business for such a long time, built up an amazing career, and started at a much younger age.

There is no comparing the two, that is so unfare to Ariana, to even try. Give this young woman a fair chance, and see how much farther she will go, or at least choose an artist who is a little closer to her level. You couldn’t compare a pro boxer, to someone who isn’t even close to going pro, why do that to Ariana!

Ariana was clearly lip syncing. Didn’t she make fun of someone else for doing that? Then she went ahead and did it. Rhianna laughed because she looked weird up there. I don’t think she should make songs anymore. She seems like a nice girl but sorry I don’t see talent there for music. She should do commercial.

Ariana was not lip syncing. During her performance you can hear her laugh. I don’t think that would be part of the track. I kind of like shakira, but she looked like she was lip syncing because she two of her voices were playing at the same time and she tried to make it look like she was singing both. Ariana doesn’t need lip sync because she has the best voice of this generation.
