Keyshia Cole performs at the 2008 BET Awards

A Slice of The BET Awards: Keyshia Cole and Lil Kim’s Cheek Implants

Keyshia Cole’s performance was cool (on a second look) - had to flashback on the DVR. Descending from a sky high platform, like a Bratz princess, is almost appropriate given that - like it or not - she is Mary J .Blige’s heir apparent. Not her spot yet, but hell..

..she even bops like Mary. It could just be the Momma Coles in her.

What do you wanna bet Lil Kim has booty cheek implants? Can’t see it from that angle, but her ass looked very Coco-like.

Maybe not the next Mary J but def the next Faith Evans. She still has stage fright hopefully she will get over that by her next album. A little advice to her management team; make her take singing lessons, so that her vocals can become more versatile, because listeners will tire hearing the same runs and middle c! Kisses! One!

“Maybe not the next Mary J but def the next Faith Evans.” WHAT??? Both Keshia Cole and definitely Faith Evans sings Mary J under the table. You think really high of an average singer at best. Get a reality check dude.

How Can you compare a freshmen to a senior come on people?  Mary J. Blige hands down is a better performer than Keyshia Cole, lets be real.  I’m tired of the comparison between the two artist.  You really can feel Mary J. Blige when she performs, and sings.  Keyshia Cole is Keyshia Cole not Mary J. Blige.  Even though I like Keyshia Cole music, I really haven’t seen a performance from Keyshia Cole that proves she is better than Mary J. Blige.  Keyshia Cole hasn’t performed on a big stage yet. This is her second album she hasn’t performed on the AMA’s, Grammy Awards, Billboard Awards, or anything.  She hasn’t won big awards yet. She hasn’t went triple platinum yet, how can you compare the two artist. Don’t get me wrong I love Keyshia Cole and I wish her the best in her career, but she’ll never be Mary J. Blige.  Keyshia Cole is just awful when it comes down to performing live! That was the worst performance at the BET Awards.

10 Terrell Thu, Jun 26, 2008 - 4:27 pm

Both women have come from a struggle, and sing their heart out and are role models for women and little girls, thats about it.  You can’t compare the two women.

11 Wow Thu, Jun 26, 2008 - 4:53 pm

READ BEFORE YOU COMMENT!!! Mary is a better performer but everyone knows that Mary can’t sing for shit and that is what we call these people SINGERS. It dissapoints me how much people can’t comprehend what they read on this site.

12 kkkkkkk Thu, Jun 26, 2008 - 4:59 pm

ummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm I dont think so my girl kicked it off last night. keyshia cole is not the next faith evans let me tell you something. keyshia cole is keyshia cole and

13 kkkkkkk Thu, Jun 26, 2008 - 5:08 pm

that is that. if i am wrong then write back.but all i know is that keyshia cole was great on tuesday.

14 Terrell Thu, Jun 26, 2008 - 5:15 pm

Well Mary J. Blige can’t sing she can sang better than Keyshia Cole!

15 Wow Thu, Jun 26, 2008 - 5:34 pm

Thank god you aren’t a talent scout because your talent would be garbage if you think Mary J can sing better then Keyshia Cole. Take a survey and you will get the truth. A real survey not one you make up…

16 Terrell Thu, Jun 26, 2008 - 6:45 pm

WOW! Whatever!

17 Brenda Bee Thu, Jun 26, 2008 - 7:05 pm

I happen to agree Mary’s talent is in her performance not her singing. She also is a very good writer. Keyshia Cole is a much better singer though.

18 Wow Thu, Jun 26, 2008 - 11:02 pm

Keyshia Cole is not a better singer than no Mary! I don’t care what anybody say! We Must be listening to two different Keyshia’s.

19 Terrell Thu, Jun 26, 2008 - 11:07 pm

We are listening to 2 different Keyshia’s I am listening to the real one and you are listening to the one from the projects. I can tell you aren’t a talent scout, Mary J’s screaming and whining is disguised by her crying and god calling on the stage and it mesmerizes people. Listen and learn.

20 hottakes2 Fri, Jun 27, 2008 - 12:59 am

What is all the fuss about? Mary and Keyshia please!!!!!! Wow and Terrell it is getting out of hand. But my opinion is that Keyshia and Mary can sing, but Mary is the queen no doubt, and Keyshia is the upcoming superstar! They both have talent, know hush the fuss you too! Dang!  We aren’t getting the money so what!

21 Wow Fri, Jun 27, 2008 - 1:06 am

There is no Mary and Keshia fuss. Mary can’t sing and Keshia can. That’s it. WE ARE TALKING ABOUT SINGING PEOPLE. Nothing else

22 Terrell Fri, Jun 27, 2008 - 1:17 pm

Yeah! That’s all we just talking no fuss, just singing! But we just disagree about the two singers!

23 Jdubbs Fri, Jun 27, 2008 - 6:08 pm

Um Mary J. is bigger than Faith and Keisha Put together and he voice has both of theirs looking sad.. She’s the queen only one mary.. No one can top her..get over it..

24 To jdubbs Fri, Jun 27, 2008 - 6:36 pm

Mary is bigger than both of them but she still can’t sing worth a shit. WE ARE TALKING ABOUT HER SINGING FOOL. Learn to read!!!

25 givemeyou2 Fri, Jun 27, 2008 - 8:40 pm

We are talking about singing, and Mary J. Blige is a better singer and performer than Miss. Keyshia Cole!  Hands Down! Wow, man you are crazy to think Keyshia Cole is better than Mary! Please!

26 Wow Fri, Jun 27, 2008 - 8:46 pm

I know what I can give you is some hearing aids. Not only is Keyshia a better singer but Mary with her cracking ass voice can’t even sing. I’ll give her credit though she has all of you fooled with her jumping around, crying and praising god on stage that you all don’t even listen to her voice. This here is not even close. Aretha Franklin even told her she needs singing lessons. What more do you people need?

27 Me, Myself, and I Fri, Jun 27, 2008 - 9:22 pm

You are not going to win this Wow, we all know Mary J. Blige is real when she sings, Keyshia Cole needs to jump up down and start crying maybe she’ll sale more records around the world! No disrespect Keyshia, but honey you need a new vocal coach!  And for Wow, you need to get a damn hearing aid, cause you are deaf in one ear.  And Aretha has never told Mary she needs singing lessons, anyway!  Maybe someone need to tell her she needs to go on a Jenny Craig Diet!

28 Wow Fri, Jun 27, 2008 - 9:46 pm

I won this, I am just here for my own amusement. Aretha did tell Mary she needs lessons. If Keshia needs a new vocal coach then Mary just needs to hang up the mic. Yeah, Aretha might to lose some weight but at least she can do what her profession is SING. I, unlike you, can give credit where credit is due. Mary can give a great show but her singing sucks. She is the Bobby Brown of todays music great show terrible voice. She has you brainwashed and you can’t see it. That’s why they call it brainwashed. It tends to work on the weeker minds. lol!!!

29 Terrell Sat, Jun 28, 2008 - 1:01 am

Well Congratulations on your win!

30 Wow Sat, Jun 28, 2008 - 1:08 am

Thank you, thank you very much. First I’d like to thank god cause without him there is no me, next my children that keep me going everyday and finally you Terrell for the great competition. lol! In all seriousness if they both have concerts in my town I am definately going to see them both. Hell they both sing better then me. Peace out.

31 AHK Sat, Jun 28, 2008 - 9:37 pm

keyshia cole-see Mary J. I want you to understand, you paid the way for me….dat’s watz up I’ve give props for that. Game’s Pain!

32 da one and only......me Sun, Jun 29, 2008 - 7:43 pm

Keyshia Cole is a great singer and she real with her music…She don’t act like she better than normal people…When she came out with her album Just Like You that was a hit…Mary J is a great singer don’t get me wrong…I love Mary J but Keyshia just so real with her music and she real with herself…She don’t try to hide where she came from…She came from the hood and had a bad youth life but she accept that and move on…Keyshia Cole is Keyshia Cole and Mary J is Mary J stop caparing the two…Yes they both are great singers but they are nothing a like…

38 Tanni Mon, Jun 30, 2008 - 12:11 am

I’m in love with Mary that is why I got so out raged about peoples opinions. Yes, I fantasize about her and wish she would make love to me everyday I have 12 children by 8 different men so I hope that won’t bother her. I have a severre case of the crabs but I try to wash them away everyday. I suck many cocks all day and put my daughters up to do the same other than that I am “just fine”. My baby daddies hate me they say that my pussy stank. I wash everyday but it just smells really bad what can I do anyone can you help me.

42 kkkkk Mon, Jun 30, 2008 - 12:29 am

KEYSHIA COLE can sing and that is that,mary j can sing and that is that.how do you think they got there job people.and I know that we all have diffrent singers but keyshia cole kicked it off on tuesday. and remember that keyshia cole likes haters too. because they always come a long.

43 Mike-Nice Mon, Jun 30, 2008 - 12:35 am

Hey kkkkk, How do you think Bobby Brown got his job? Was it because of his singigng? What I am saying is that all singers (Mary J) can’t sing just like all basketball players can’t play.

44 kkkkk Mon, Jun 30, 2008 - 5:11 pm

well if basketball players can’t play then they would’nt be where they are now and mary j can sing because it’s very hard to get into the singing buisness and also bobby brown had alot of ties into the industry

45 Mike-Nice Mon, Jun 30, 2008 - 5:16 pm

Well I see why you think Mary can sing. You think all basketball players can play. So apparently you think all singers can sing. What about Milli Vanilli? By your own rules they can sing right? I guess you think Soulja Boy can rap too? lol!!!

46 Gina Mon, Jun 30, 2008 - 8:51 pm

#1 that blog fight was really awful. why can’t we agree to disagree.
#2 i love mary j keyshia cole beyonce alicia. they all deserve their celebrity status as super stars in current r&b;music
mary j is particularly my favorite. just from her staying power. i was 6 when she came out. and the only way mary j survived in this unreliable music industry is from singing. everyone is entitled to their own opinion. but her work speaks for itself.
all won’t like her voice. but many do.
#3 i personally love soulful singing like
mary j   .it’s not pitch perfect, it’s not glamorous. but it’s not fake . i get chills looking at mary j on tv performing live.
but on record my favorite songs are
1. all that i can say (never heard low raspy singing like that before and was crystal clear)
2. my life (emotional soul oozing out my speakers)
3.share my world ( favorite )
4.in the meantime (best cut on no more drama)
5. remake of everlasting love by chaka .

I think Keyshia Cole look good yall beta stop hating on her yall some haters!!!!!!!! She is making money and yall not yall working at malls and a candy store and a clothing store so shut the CRAP up!!!!!! I like Keyshia Cole she sing pretty good!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Not to say i am gay but i like her singing!!!!!!!

49 Jay Brown Tue, Nov 03, 2009 - 1:53 pm

these people is soooooooooo dumb.. you can’t put on a great show if you can’t sing.. Mary made millions from off her vocals nothing else!! Mary J sanging ability of today is really unbeatable compared to her sanging ability years prior.. Keyshia can’t do none of Mary’s high notes vocal runs or power belts.. Back then Mary didn’t even need to do all the adlibs n hight notes she do all the time.. her voice appeal and gut wrenching soul was all it took to become the top female r&b artist in the world.. Not Keyshia nor Faith could get the much success from just there voice alone because thousands have similar tones n voices.. while Mary’s is 1 of a kind

50 1 up Tue, Nov 03, 2009 - 5:11 pm

Apparently, you are the stupid one if you think nonsinging Mary can sing. She has made millions from choosing great songs not because she can sing. She sings no better than Bobby Brown. Mary can’t do none of her own high notes. I agree with you about her soul but as a singer she sucks.

51 ok Fri, Dec 18, 2009 - 1:20 am

I Like Both of them,Keyshia Cole Looks up 2 Mary.If Mary waznt around keyshia wouldnt be either. Yall kill me with all the arguments about who is better than 1 thats what mess up peoples esteem.half of yall talking like yall know them personally just because Keyshia Cole got a show about her life how do know if everthing she said happens or yall see on the TV is real or not,i mean come on u can’t convice me that everytime they have a problem the camera is magiclly appears.
