General
I think I corrected one link, but I can't correct the Plugged In link (yellow). Could you do that please, or teach me how to do it?
I tested this link myself, and it seems to be working fine, so we can just leave it.
  • This may just be my personal preference, but I'd replace all instances of "the singer" with "Perry".
 Done, although in the first sentence of Background section I changed "the singer" to "she" so Perry didn't repeat.
That's fine!
  • Move the "External links" section after "References".
 Done
Introduction
  • The release date provided is simply that of the parent album, so it does not need to be included in the infobox.
 Done, removed.
  • "Upon the release of Prism, contemporary music critics received "By the Grace of God" favorably: many of whom highlighted its vulnerability and the fact that it was only composed by Perry and Wells, thus making it a standout from its parent album. Anyhow, some found that it was "ridden with cliché". Additionally, its placement on the tracklist of the album was also criticized." This thought could be rewritten like "Upon the release of Prism, "By the Grace of God" received generally favorable reviews from music critics, who appreciated its vulnerability but criticized its placement on the record."
 Done
  • Instead of saying "it managed to enter", just say "it entered", and replace the term "positions" with "numbers".
 Done
Critical response
  • I'd recommend renaming this section "Critical reception".
 Done
  • "Initial criticism of "By the Grace of God" was generally positive." This thought could be rewritten like "Upon its release, "By the Grace of God" received generally favorable reviews from music critics."
 Done
Chart performance
  • I'd recommend renaming this section "Commercial performance".
 Done
Track listing
  • I don't think this section is necessary, since all of this information is already covered in the infobox in greater detail.
 Done, removed
Chart positions
  • I'd recommend renaming this section "Charts".
 Done

I spot-checked references along the way, and they all sourced the information they were supposed to. Once these comments are addressed, I don't see any issues with passing the article. WikiRedactor (talk) 19:18, 24 December 2013 (UTC)

I think it's all done, thank you for reviewing the article! Prism 11:52, 25 December 2013 (UTC)
