  1. Gwen looked beautiful. But I am worried that her label is not letting her promote BDL. Could be a similar situation to lady gaga last year. Not freaking out just speculating…its bizzare there has been no promotion on the single yet and the performance tonight was cancelled. If this is not the case she might be having sonething going on in her personal life that is taking away from her music which is understandable. I have a hard time believing gwen cancelled the performance tonight because she is not ready to perform it yet…its been out for a month. There has got to be something more going on behind the scenes. Still crossing my fingers that Gwen will perform next week though…

  2. Technically it wasn’t cancelled, because it was never announced by NBC. Some people claim that they saw ads on TV announcing Gwen’s performance, but most of us have never seen those. We only had one source last week claiming that Gwen would be perform tonight, so maybe it was just a false rumor after all. Some person from inside the taping said thatt Gwen actually was performing, so the new theory is that they taped her performance, but will show it on one of the following episodes (probably not tonight as Gwen wasn’t announced by Carson).

  3. I’m thinking perhaps she canceled only because I’m watching the show now with verizon fios and it says “Gwen Stefani performs” in the information. I was a little bummed going to the taping today and not having her perform, but I thought Pharell was fantastic and his ND shirt was fantastic. and I was just happy to be in her presence, obviously 😀 I’m grateful I got to go to 3 tapings this season and so happy for Gwen and her opportunity to be on the show! She seems to truly enjoy it. You go girl.

  4. Baby don’t lie is officially a joke … I mean it’s so sad to say and I hate to say it …but the song has been out a month… and STILL no promotion?! It’s not wonder the song is plummeting on the charts. You have to promote to get a single popular…. and BDL has lost so much momentum since it debuted. -_- I really don’t get this whole approach at her so called “comeback” .

  5. Its sad her comeback is joke. If she was listed then sjhe cancelled. Time to move on, if she doesn’t or can’t promote an album the right way better get the hell out of the mess right away. BDL is a flop and still we don’t have any information when the album drops or anything.

  6. Jossy, I don’t you find a new artist to follow then and leave the comments from BSO for the non negative fans? It’s getting tired to come here to read stuff and have to read all this negativity coming from you and some others, turning what used to be a fun place to hang, to a bashing center for Gwen and the band.

  7. I can’t imagine there was any time slotted for Gwen to perform. Unless they switched in Pharell instead. The timing wouldn’t allow for them both to…speculation is never a good thing. Just sit back and wait for official announcements.

  8. I love her but holy plastic surgery/injections.

    I don’t want to be negative but gwen was someone I looked up to from the age of 13 as doing things so much differently than other women in music. Making money, yes, but in her own way (lamb,harajuky, etcc) now with the BDL video looking like a commercial for Apple and the lip balm plugs I’ve kinda lost my appetite.

    Is it better to burn out or fade away?

  9. Relax guys…she will perform. I personally wouldn’t mind if BDL was just a buzz single and she goes full force with STF instead.

    I don’t think that part in her hair is particularly flattering.

  10. yea her lips look crazy!!! i know she “fluffs” them but they didn’t look like that last night! haha. must be the makeup.

  11. I disagree about the hairstyle. It makes her looks beautiful.

    The one I really think doesn’t flatter her is the straightened one with that hair clip!
