    On another note, the internet is now trying to find out who this "Bonny Bear" charcter is


    It's just like last year with Arcade Fire

    I think you guys are giving Rihanna too much hate! I'm not a fan of her music, but she wasn't horrible. Anywho, PoC was alright but felt awkward to me. I was really hoping that Coldplay would perform Charlie Brown but as you all know, they went with Paradise. I don't like their live version of Paradise at all! To me it feels slow and dragged out. The album version is much better but I can respect Coldplay for wanting to actually play the music instead of using fake recordings. I just think that the string instruments really make Paradise what it is. I thought Chris' singing for Paradise was a bit sloppy but from what you guys were saying, he wasn't feeling well (hope he gets better!). Overall, I think Coldplay needs to take some time off to relax. They've been playing at a lot of shows.

    Back with AROBTH and even X&Y, Coldplay was a nice fit for the United States. Now however, I feel as if Coldplay has really outgrown the United States. By that, I mean a lot of their hard core fan base lives outside of the United States. I just think of Coldplay as more of a global band now. And I don't think that Coldplay gets enough respect here in the States either.

    Anyway, I'm SUPER PUMPED to see Coldplay for the 3rd time in July at the Verizon Center in Washington D.C!!! I hope they get plenty of rest before they come so they're totally relaxed and energized.

    MX is not strong enough like the other coldplay stuff so I predicted they wouldn't win , But I think we can bet on the boys to pleasantly surprise us in the future with a crazy amazing album again like ViVa (Rock not pop like MX which they aren't that strong at )! Love the boys and they will always be awesome! Fuck the grammys!

    The duo with Rihanna sounded poor in my opinion. Chris and Rihanna's voice didn't seem to fit together as much as they do in the studio version and it all felt out of place and awkward. Chris' singing was shaky on Paradise too.

    I think Rihanna has a nice/"diving" voice with lots of natural cool movements, can really "fly" it anywhere; the textures of her voice are very diverse and sensitive - I may suggest that she should try songs like Masquerade by Carpenters. She was a bit nervous in POC than her own song. I like Co.'s shirts; but it is also true Chris need to rest his voice. For the acoustic version, I think you can make it more peaceful/calm [or even making a new version with a few modifications] than the normal stadium style by a band. As by two, there are more details/delicacies to deliver/present. To say the least, it is not an easy acoustic song to sing comparing to the most. So, good try.

    I think Chris was alright given that they had to cancel the Australian shows, what with his illness. Nice of him to go on anyway and do it, to be honest, he could've cancelled.

    I posted this on the Post pictures of the gorgeous Chris thread, but it would also fit here :

    2 positive things about their performance:
    1. DARK MX CLOTHES OMG / Chris is so hot
    2. Rihanna didn't grind against his body
    A very dazzled Coldplay fan

    Wow am I really the only one who likes their PoC performance? I love Chris' guitar and their singing together, Rihanna was a bit off at some parts but for the rest I really liked it.

    It is the day after the night before and my opinion hasn't changed now that I've seen the performance a couple of times. I'm still disappointed. I was so hoping for the album version of PoC, not an acoustic one. It just felt to me that they were taking it a bit easy with only a guitar, because there was almost no time to rehearse or something.

    Of course, they both sung it well, but it definitely wasn't as spectacular as I had hoped.
    I was armed with a spraycan soul on:
    09.09.2009: Coldplay @ Goffertpark Nijmegen; The Netherlands
    02.07.2011: Coldplay @ Rock Werchter; Belgium

    17.12.2011: Coldplay @ Ahoy Rotterdam; The Netherlands
    06.09.2012: Coldplay @ Malieveld The Hague; The Netherlands

    'Oh Oh Den Haag, it's really great for us to be here. We can't wait till our band can come and play in Den Haag again!'

    I just have to say this....really wish they hadn't did POC. I'm just not a huge fan of that song, sorry. I was hoping they would've did Charlie Brown or UATW instead. You know, something that showcased just them, not them and Rihanna. I just think it was the wrong song choice.
