Ciara and Missy Elliott have been announced as joint performers at this years American Music Awards (October 9th). Ciara hints that ‘Level Up’ and ‘Dose’ may very well get the live treatment.
I don’t know where Missy factors into it though. Perhaps they’re planning to throw in some of their throwback collabs in a medley? (ETA: reader reminds me of the ‘Level Up‘ remix featuring Missy and Fatman Scoop.) This is going to be Ciara’s first music award performance in so many years, and I feel she should have done this alone. No offense to Missy, as I think Missy is a legend and I love Missy. However, those two are always put together on performances as if it’s a buy one get on free bargain. She doesn’t need a bunch of folks on her stage because she has the triple threat presence to wow a crowd all on her own. She just needs to hire a new choreographer to come up with some fresh dance moves and she’s set.
