Fergie is a terrible live performer

May 20th, 2008 // 171 Comments

Fergie performed/butchered the Heart classic “Barracuda” this morning on The Today Show (video after the jump). Talk about insulting. It’s a documented fact that I heart Heart. Anyway, during the song Fergie decided to pretend she was fellating her guitar player which, you know, hey, that’s rock n’ roll. But, for the record, her audience was stocked with parents and children, I shitteth thee not! I’m sure lots of questions were asked on the drive home particularly the always awkward, “Mommy, why did that man dress like a lady and make the baby Jesus cry?”

    WOW….. that is going straight to the soup……..Simply unbelievable …in the jungle ? man is she stupid…at least she did not piss herself this time I guess thats why she uses leather pants now so she can just releave herslf whenever and nobody would know….

  2. TheRage

    singing abilities aside, i didn’t see anything inappropriate about her performance.

  3. Bebe

    Ummm #23. Not that it really matters but Ann Wilson is the lead singer of Heart. The dark haired one. Duh. Get your facts straight.

    Fergie sucks. And she looks like a tranny.

  4. KC

    Man, those are some uncomfortable and not-into-the-whole-show looking people in the audience. You’d think they would stock the front rows with people who’ll cheer for anything, but they got zombies instead.

    You stupid slut whore tramp skank! YOU’RE gonna die if I have any say in the matter you wanna be hard core wish you were talented wish you were a rocker piece of scandalous pitiful trash!!! Disgracing classic rock like that!!!! Writhing around for all the moms and kids like a vile, worthless whorrrrrrrrre!

  6. Jackson

    She looks like she gained weight which is good for her since she was a drug addict. It looks like she is wearing body shapers to make her stomach flat and improve her butt.

  7. and yet…and yet…I’d pump that ass until she sprayed diarrhea on all the kids in the first row.

  8. jeff

    this video was not nearly as bad as i had been led to believe. the cartwheel/flips were an interesting touch – go mouscateers!

  9. Sara

    wow theres not even any words for that was it just me or did she resemble a drunken kareoke singer and the ass shaking at the end was priceless

  10. Somebody should have told the Alabama Christian Superchurch tour bus that they’d each get their names in the ol’ Book O’ Life just for showing up. They might have cheered more.

    I thought meth was supposed to kill people who abuse it

    Way to let me down, meth.

    WHY ARE THE BOOTS DIFFERENT?! How? I am confused.

  13. becky

    at least she’s wearing water-proof rubber pants, you know, in case she has to go onesies.

  14. Fred Raimondi

    Holy mother of god. I saw her do this WITH HEART and for the little bit that she did, it wasn’t that bad. Her band is terrible, and she has NO stage game at all. Wow. Just wow.

  15. Maybe?

    I don’t know what you guys see, but I think she’s hot….

  16. VtFarmboy

    The drummer sucks……. the performance was ok….. maybe not meant for little kids…. but the drummer really sucks. I have been playing since the 70′s and heart(the orignal not the80′s version) was one of my favorite bands…. but dude you need to do better with the feet and please keep a streight beat… and dont try and show off with the tripps……..

    She looks fine, but isn’t dancing appropriately for her audience. Crawling… humping air.. kneeling in front of the guitarist.. shaking her ass at the end incase we missed it in those saran wrap pants… save that for an older crowd..

  20. Kent

    She sang well on some of it. At least it was live and not lip-synced. I’ll give her that. But, she’s no rocker. Toss off!

  21. gg

    LMAO. i had to tell #9 they made me spit out water.

  22. Ted from LA

    Wasn’t she on the Seinfeld “two face” episode? If she wasn’t, she should have been. Get to work Fish.

  23. will.i.am.

    #34. i was just thinking the same thing. i am equally confused…

  24. jesus

    damn i would ass fuck that woman. sorry dad (god) , jesus out.

  25. Redd

    Damn, I haven’t seen anyone do “the truffle shuffle” in years! Glad to see Chunk is still working!

  26. d.l.

    wow. that was completely inappropriate.

  27. d.l.

    i think the pictures of the heels were taken before her performance, and she changed into boots for the performance…

  28. ElizabethZ

    OH MY GOD!!!!!! What the hell was that crap!???!!! And that Axel Rose Impression at the end! LOL!!! That was so stupid!!! This woman needs to go away and stop making millions for her worthless talents. Even American singers sing better then her! GOD HELP US!!!!!!!!!

    American Idol Singers that is!

  32. Maudina

    Poor children. Why did she do the stripper crawl right at those 8 yr-old little boys. Didn’t she see them??
    Anyway, I’m mesmerized by her ass, though.

  33. JimmyBachaFungool

    I would tear her up. But I I would rather have Robin Meade from CNN Headline News. I rape myself every morning watching her. Probably why I didn’t have Today on.

  34. JimmyBachaFungool

    By the way, Fergie’s vocal in “Big Girls Don’t Cry” is one of the best. Too many haters here. I would let Fergie shit in my mouth.

  35. HuckyDucky

    She hit the notes. Let’s see somebody like Avril Lavigne try to hit even one of them. She can’t even hit her own. The one-hand flips were were impressive also.

    Huh. I came away pretty impressed. I am surprised.

  36. kangoolari

    It’s even more amusing with the sound off

  37. sharpie

    watch it muted, its so much better

  38. sharpie

    dammit!

  39. Angry Snow Monkey

    Just two words need to be said-latex angel

  40. pistola

    this was a TERRIBLE somg to cover for this event. just because u CAN, doesn’t mean that u SHOULD. it was so inappropriate. i hope she watches this and is as embarassed as i was.

  41. Cromag

    As a musician I would have been super pissed at her for fucking that vocal jerking off during my guitar solo. Talentless cunt.

  42. That was painful to watch. Especially the white-girl bootie shaking (attempt).

  43. Vince Lombardi

    Since she never uses the “handgun to the head” finger pose in “Barracuda,” I’m guessing the photos of her in heels are not contemporaneous with the video. Would you really fly your entire band to NYC and set up just to cover “Barracuda” or perhaps would you give a mini-concert to promote your re-release?

    And for those who don’t think she does a decent cover, you have to remember she’s being mixed for a live crowd and that NEVER translates to the mix needed for live TV. Has there EVER been a recording of a live concert that didn’t sound like the band was killing the lead singer when you watched it uncut on TV? Concert footage is heavily remixed for television. I’m simply astounded at her breath control as she does her one-hand walk-overs.

  44. KGSwiger

    I’m amazed at the number of people without a shred of talent who feel qualified to deride her performance. She was damned good, people. You don’t like her, don’t watch, dipshits.

  45. BitchyBlonde

    I can’t believe someone would actually pay money to see/download the music of this no talent hack.

  46. Fergie'sNotBad

    This isn’t bad at all. The sound suck, as it usually does on these morning shows, but this really isn’t a bad performance. You people haven’t heard someone actually suck on stage. Fergie’s voice is fantastic.

    For all you uninformed souls arguing about Heart: Nancy is the hot blonde who married the Rolling Stone guy and Ann is the fat brunette who was actually pretty hot back in the 70′s and early 80′s. ANN IS THE LEAD SINGER OF Heart. Nancy did lead vocals on a few of their hits including “These Dreams” and “Stranded”.

  49. loser

    that was great!!

  50. Aake Jonsson

    Who said she’s a bad performer? She does one-handed Flic-Flac gymnastics stunts while singing and did a great Axl Rose impersonation.
    Poor kids looked pretty confused though and she should rely on lip-sync.
