Some artists’ hectic schedules do not always allow time for them to sharpen their vocals or rehearse. Others just don’t give a fawk. Here are 9 artists who have had bad performances.


Rihanna’s Navy accused her of lip synching, low energy and high ticket prices during a performance in Johannesburg. This was one of many ishtty performances from the bad gal.

Miley Cyrus

The world collectively cringed when Miley twerked her boyish cakes on Robin Thicke. Having no azz and twerking does not go together.

Keri Hilson

She’ll never be King Bey! Keri forgot the words to the national anthem during a Hawks vs. Lakers game. She almost skipped an entire verse until she caught herself.


Ginuwine looked like he popped one too many mollies during his infamous performance with TGT and could barely get a note out. Ninja had the nerve to blame an energy drink.

Mary J. Blige

It started with that crispy chicken commercial and ended with her struggle performance of “My Favorite Things.” She had to try three times. Dayum.

Alicia Keys

Alicia murdered the “Star Spangled Banner’ at the 2013 Superbowl. She tried to jazz it up and drag out the song, but she couldn’t overcome her struggle vocals.

    Remember this guy? “American Idol” reject William Hung’s version of Ricky Martin’s “She Bangs” went viral. It was so awesomely bad that he got a record deal with Koch records.
