‘Bye Felicia!’ Keri Hilson Claps Back After Performing For A Smaller Audience

‘Bye Felicia!’ Keri Hilson Claps Back After Performing For A Smaller Audience

I get what you get in 10 years, in two days.” ~ Chris Brown

Keri Hilson made headlines yesterday after she tweeted to a few haters who dissed her for performing at the AT&T Playoff Playlist Live to a spacey crowd; the show was held at the American Airlines Center in Texas.

Reportedly, the “Knock You Down” singer/songwriter was an opening act for Lenny Kravitz. Fans who attended the live show took pictures of Hilson while she was on stage and recorded videos from their smartphones.

The “problem” came when Hilson’s performance pics surfaced online, courtesy of “Black Twitter,” followed by negative commentary that Hilson lacked the ability to attract a large crowd.

Check out the tweets below:

Now here’s a few things to consider – Hilson was an opening act for Lenny Kravitz meaning she wasn’t the main attraction.  Kravitz didn’t take to the stage until four hours after Hilson’s performance and the crowd hadn’t drastically changed. Lastly, the show’s lineup wasn’t incredibly huge.

Check out the scheduled performances below:

6:00 PM – 6:15 PM – Rose Bowl Band

6:30 PM – 6:45PM Sugar Bowl Band

7:00PM – 8:00 PM – Keri Hilson

8:30 PM – 9:00 PM – Vintage Trouble

9:30 PM – 11:00 PM – Lenny Kravtiz

Sometimes it’s best to get all of the facts, or as much information as one can, before hopping on Twitter and throwing a little shade.

Peep a snippet of Hilson’s performance below:


And the word of the day is “Unbothered.”
