Jessica Simpson Shines, Britney Spears Sours At Jingle Ball

Darryl Morden of the Hollywood Reporter reviewed the KIIS FM Jingle Ball concert the other night, praising while sneering at the performance of the show’s headliner, .

Morden writes, “Spears’ three-song closing set was completely anticlimactic — cold, detached and perfunctory. And although she wore a headset mic, it didn’t even appear as if she was singing most of the time, her voice bolstered by multitracks in the background as she ran through the same old synchro-choreography and Sodom & Gomorrah writhing from past years with her coed troupe of dancers.”

As for Simpson, he remarked, “Who’d have thought the most artistry would come from Jessica Simpson? The maybe-Gracie Allen of the 21st century, with faux Farrah Fawcett ’70s hair, turned in an acoustic set accompanied by just two guitar players and a percussionist, her vocals reined for some actual subtlety.”

    That’s no surprise since Britney can’t sing for sh*t! Jessica may be a ditz but at least she has some sort of talent….something Britney will never have!

    LMAO another awful performance. three years ago she was doing the exact same thing and getting praised for it. people are obviously seeing through her crap now. its gotten so old and tired and predictable. every single performance she’s done this year has been ripped to shreds by reviewers. the girls going down.

    GO JESS!!! HA HA on Britney….. It’s sad when you’re trashed for EVERYTHING you do and it’s your personal life keeping you afloat! I don’t know about anyone else, but I’d want my PROFESSIONAL life to shine in those situations!

    This is so sad! Yeah… I love you Britney but this time… okay, okay…. but yeah! Jess sings like a 13-years-old-girl… =P maybe Beyonce shines, or Thalia.
