So we know that 99% of the time the girls slay every performance they have but I was re-watching their EMA performance of 'Woman Like Me' and was actually quite shocked at how bad Jade sounded. She's normally the most consistent live but I dunno if it was the fact she was nervous (doubt it?) or if its just a difficult part to sing but she sounded Vanessa White 2011 level of voice cracking.

I think Jade sounds fine here personally ?

there is a part during her first verse that she sorta struggles with, I think it's nerves since Jade/Perrie have always said they get performance anxiety. edit: 3:26 is when her voice cracks, it doesn't sound too bad but yeah it's still an off moment, but hey they're performing with Nicki with basically little rehearsal time, i'd be sh*tting it too

there's a few other "bad" vocal performances members have given, but they've never given like an absolute travesty of a performance. a lot of it was from Jesy/Leigh- Jesy pushing her voice a bit too much in terms of her vibrato (her Power belt used to be slightly sharp) and Leigh has had some slip ups with pitch but it's never been a big shocking moment, thank god.

Shout Out to My Ex was probs the song that gave them the most difficulty, it's a monster of a song to sing live (even w/miming the chorus) Perrie sounded v tired during the middle 8 and Jesy/Leigh would go off key on their belts (Leigh's "my liiiIIIIFE", there's a really bad one in America but luckily it was Ariana's tour during the opening act so not a HUUUUGE public crowd and Jesy's "you're really quite the MAAAAAN" was axed after 2 failed attempts)

I think the Strictly Come Dancing performance of Woman Like Me was not good vocally at all from any of them. It was definitely an off moment. I agree about Perrie and the middle 8 of Shout out, she always sounds tired/raspy.

This clip was used in a 'fail' video on YouTube for their vocals and ever since I saw it I always sort of wince at the 'GURLURTROUBLE' and NOWIWONDAH' croaking.

I've always hated the way Jesy sang her Power verse. It always sounds off

That festival in the US where they sang dressed in yellow outfits without one member is their worst.

Also Leigh on the very first DNA performance on X Factor was pretty shaky.
