Ciara Wows During 'Jackie Tour,' Performs Michael Jackson Tribute [CONCERT REVIEW]
Singer Ciara rocked the Best Buy Theater in New York City during her Jackie Tour where she proved she still had the same fiery moves since her "Goodies" album debut in 2004.
The 29-year-old welcomed her son Future Zahir Wilburn -who turns one this month- in 2014 and later announced her split from fiancé, Future after there were several rumors of infidelity between the couple. The towering beauty has since snapped back, losing 60-pounds of baby weight and has finally opened up about her unfortunate break up with the Turn On The Lights rap star in her latest single "I Bet."
It seems Ci-Ci is back and better than ever with a fresher look and a bigger sound. As expected, Ciara wowed in a sexy black bandeau crop top with a short black blazer and her signature black baggy pants. All eyes were glued on her as purple lights lit up the stage and she reenacted her famous microphone scene from her "Promise" music video. The crowd cheered as if they were witnessing her in a dance battle with unmatched opponents.
As the stage blacked out, Ciara reemerged with blazing white lights as speakers blasted heart beat sounds before she went into her 2006 hit song "Like A Boy." Immediately, cheers explode and the packed crowd sang along before she witnessing her bend backwards without any support during her Matrix move- Yup, she still has it!
One interesting turn during the night ended up being a big crowd-pleaser as she reappeared on stage wearing a black hat, imitating the late pop star and legend, Michael Jackson. Although, she's been compared to Janet Jackson since her start, Ciara dominated his moves effortlessly in a mini tribute. Soon after, she broke into Aretha Franklin's "I Will Survive" which seemed to be a slight dig at her ex-fiancé when she transitioned into her hit single "I Bet," the revealing song about her break up and the alleged cheating she endured during her pregnancy.

Just when fans assumed the show was over and began to scurry toward the exit, she came back for an encore and performed fan favorite "Goodies" before closing the show with a personalized lullaby dedicated to her toddler.
