Waaaahhhh, this performance got me choked up like an old engine I tell you what, it’s fucking beautiful, this one - man - I still can’t decide but this is close to I Need U as far as my favorite BTS choreo goes and I can’t even believe I’m saying that because I love I Need U so much but hhhhh gave me shivers too. JIn legit looked like True Royalty  - all the boys did such Princes, such amazing performers, such voices!! So much Jin < 333 Thank you for blessing my inbox with this ask friend, I hadn’t seen this yet!!!

VMA 2016 Performance

This is my favourite live performance for a number of reasons. They all look hot af, just getting that out the way first. They all sound so great! It’s one of those performances where they sound better than the actual single. Plus the harmonies, especially at 2:37, are so on point 👌 The audience is also so great! You can tell that there’s a connection between them and the boys, especially with the ‘YOU SING’ bit. I love when the audience is responsive and singing along. Just everything about this performance is delicate and lovely and amazing! Even the lighting is glorious. (Harry also murdered me at 2:59. And then again at 3:11.)

I normally wouldn’t post something so serious like this, or even something that was so unabashedly from my musical theater love, on this blog, but this needs to be seen by every living, breathing person on the planet, and it needs to be seen now.

Jennifer Hudson’s performance here is, without a doubt, the most powerful, beautiful, moving performance I’ve ever seen. I’m almost certain that almost every other actor in this scene is getting emotional. (You can clearly see tears running down Maddie Baillio’s face and Garrett Clayton struggling to keep it together.) Please, if you see only one thing from Hairspray Live!, let it be this.

If You Only Knew - Live From Houston (x)

CiaraI BET (Acoustic)

“ but you took advantage . oh , you took advantage . oh , you took advantage .

i cannot understand , i cannot understand , i cannot understand it . ”

this acoustic version just made me fall even more in love with this song . ciara’s vocals have grown tremendously !

I read somewhere on the internet
That my generation has
Lost the ability to love.
Because I cared more about my own happiness
Than ‘compromising’ with a boy once we both realised we had drastically different ideas of life.
Because the girl who lives next door has slept with four different people this week,
Knowing she didn’t want to spend the rest of her life with them.
Because we run through the world
Caring not for keeping hearts
Or ripping ourselves apart so that we can pretend
That we are happy.

And this article said we’ve never even learned to love,
That there was a flaw in our socialisation,
And maybe that’s true.
Because instead of planning weddings and christenings in unknown futures,
I’m planning how to afford a one bedroom flat in two very clear years.
Instead of spending years being confused by boys and girls
I’m wondering why I was ever confused at all.
Instead of trying to choose who wins my heart,
I’ve decided that my heart is not even a prize.

So maybe my generation has lost the ability to love.
Or maybe we’ve just begun to learn that
Love is not the
All-important
Ultimate objective
Which is worshipped by the world.
Maybe,
We’re learning that instead
It can ebb and flow like a tide,
Shining under moonlight
And running away in the wind.

We’re learning that people live in different ways.
And that,
Although I love someone today,
I may not love them tomorrow.
And that’s ok.
We’re learning that sometimes you can love many people at once.
That love is not a cake
That I cut into pieces,
And give away and lose every time I meet someone new.
It is a part of my soul,
That is a part of me always,
That I show people when and where I wish,
And will hide away again if they don’t respect it.

We’re learning
That sex is not love
And love is not sex.
And just because I’m not fucking someone,
Doesn’t that that I wouldn’t give them the world.
Or… just because I am doesn’t mean that I would.

Because I can assure you,
We have learnt what ‘love’ is.
What you have told us it is.
What we are bombarded with every day:
Sparks flying
And soul mates
And connecting together in some ritualistic love making.
Marriage
And children
And fairy tale endings.
Or dying of broken hearts because when your soul mate leaves you become nothing.
Romance and tragedy
And unfulfilment if my supposedly half heart doesn’t end up as a whole.

We have learnt what your love is.
And we have rejected it.
For something more chaotic,
And unsure,
And beautiful,
And true.

This is Aivi and Surasshu performing live at AOD in Santa Clara. As far as a I know, the majority of this song has not been aired ore released anywhere else yet. I missed the beginning! Sorry!

Surasshu is on the left of the frame while Aivi is sitting at the piano on the right. Between them is Aivi’s younger sister (I think she said her name was Thu? If someone knows her name, lemme know). I believe the guitarist is Edwin Rhodes, who also plays the guitar in the original recording.

Lyrics:

If I could begin to be
Half of what you think of me
I could do about anything
I could even learn how to love

When I see the way you act
Wondering if I’m coming back
I could do about anything
I could even learn how to love like you

Love like you
Love like you

I always thought I might be bad
Now I’m sure that it’s true
‘Cause I think you’re so good
And I’m nothing like you

Look at you go
I just adore you
I wish that I knew
What makes you think I’m so special

If I could begin to do
Something that does right by you
I would do about anything
I would even learn how to love

When I see the way you look
Shaken by how long it took
I could do about anything
I could even learn how to love like you

Love me like you
