  1. 1

    I did not even know that it was her singing.



  2. 2

    It's HER classic you fucking pig.



  3. 3

    I don't think she did that bad…..



  4. 4

    Don't agree. I think she is getting her voice back. She looked great last night! I am so glad she is doing better. Love her lots!



  5. 5

    This is not OK…I hope this is a wake up call to her people that whit whit needs to stop singing. This is the price she paid for doing all those drugs. Her time is over.



  6. 6

    how can she butcher it when its HER song
    fuck tard.



  7. 7

    THis is why CRACK IS WHACK. All the drugs butchered her voice! She's singing every other word. How is she gonna get back into singing when she can't sing anymore?



  8. 8

    Awww leave the poor woman alone she obviously did her best. Her voice is not pretty much gone and there is nothing she can really do to get it back. Get use to it.



  9. 9

    What the hell was that? That is a CLASSIC and I could sing it better, c'mon Whitney!



  10. 10

    Well…at least she looked nice. I like the color yellow on her…..



  11. 11

    Wow. Pure awfulness. Her singing days are over.



  12. 12

    She hasn't voice but it's normal, at least she is alive



  13. 13

    Whitney will always hold a special place in my heart. I'm happy to see her out and looking good. Her voice was a little off and I think the sound was bad at DWTS. Everyone is allowed a bad day. Let's not dismiss her too quickly based on this performance. Let's not disregard the work she's done to get healthy.

    I love you, Whitney.



  14. 14

    Her breathing is all fucked up from all the drugs. Remember Yasmine Bleeth? Her nose became messed up from all her coke use and when she breathed it sounded weird. Whitney sounds like that.



  15. 15

    OMG she should give it up, she use to be a good singer but the crack has ruined her voice beyond all repair not to mention her lungs as well. It sounds like she can hardly breathe.



  16. 16

    What is so horrible about it?
    She sounds good!



  17. 17

    I would just like to know who dressed her, that dress is awful…also she seems a bit unstable during the performance, maybe popped a few too many aspirin before the performance??!!



  18. 18

    =( so sad… her voice is not the same.



  19. 19

    her voice….. is just not Whitney anymore…



  20. 20

    She doesn't even sing anymore. It's like she speaks her songs. I miss the old Whitney :(



  21. 21

    I seen her horrid performance on last month's X-FACTOR and it was AS WEAK. It's either her new performance level or the years of smoking crack and cigs have finally taken their toll on her vocals. She should hang it up. The background vocalists were the ones who sang the melody line of the entire chorus. ~ Plus Whitney needs a new stylist because while on the AMAs and on DWTS she looked as if she has a 3 month pregnancy bellie!



  22. 22

    ohhhh honey to you!!! i have always liked you perez, but lately you have gone too far! she did a fine job, its her song, he fresh arrangement, her perogative.

    I AM LOSING RESPECT FOR YOU QUICKLY PEREZ AND LOSING CLICK BY CLICK BY CLICK, YOUR WEB HITS WILL DECLINE AND YOU WILL BE GONE SOON IF YOU DON'T PUT YOUR THINKING CAP ON FAST!!!!!



  23. 23

    She seriously damaged her voice with the crack. A drag-queen impersonator would sound better.



  24. 24

    Geezus PumpkinHead. I wouldn't call it "butchered". If you havent noticed lately, drugs or whatever she has changed her style and that song was produced 20+ years ago. Of course she will sound different.

    Why must you beat people down. Give her a break. That goes for the rest of you haters making comments here on this post.



  25. 25

    Be kind Perez. She looks like she is having the time of her life. She is back entertaining and doing what she loves best. We all have missed her and I am thankful that she has returned. I think she looks amazing and still has a great voice.



  26. 26

    see perez, you should stop doing crack



  27. 27

    was she drunk?



  28. 28

    I think even with the voice she has right now she's still better then most singers today.



  29. 29

    She sounded worse than some drunk karaoke singer at the local legion.
    .
    To many years of crack and coke destroyed her vocals and her lungs.
    Her performance was embarrassing :(
    .
    Without the background singers, there wouldn't have been any singing at all.



  30. 30

    I love her but what is going on lately? This was really hard to watch b/c this song is a classic and her voice on the original track was UNBELIEVABLE. This year has been a series of one good performance (Clive’s Pre-Grammy Party, X-Factor Italy, AMA’s, Oprah) followed by 1 horrible (GMA, Dancing With the Stars etc). This was beyond horrible. Whitney Houston used to possess the greatest voice of all time, now she’s very inconsistent and I think Leona Lewis, Christina Aguilera and Beyonce have overtaken Whitney, Mariah and Celine as the greatest female vocalists.



  31. 31

    Wow, that was just horrific… So sad.



  32. 32

    Cute dress, she needed to cut her bangs though, you couldn't even see her face. She needs to take breathing lessons because she could hardly catch her breath long enough to sing 2 words.



  33. 33

    she was so high



  34. 34

    Yeah not so good, and why does she look like she's pregnant?



  35. 35

    I think she did great! after years of major drug use.. your voice isn't going to be top notch!

  36. Fabby says – reply to this


    36

    wow. How embarrassing!



  37. 37

    OMFG…I couldn't listen to the whole thing. Way to painful. Please Whitney, STOP SINGING NOW. Save face.

  38. 29 says – reply to this


    38

    she didn't suck, but it's definitely not the same anymore. i was disappointed after watching her last night. sorry whitney, but i think you're time is up honey.



  39. 39

    EVERYONE CHANGES AS THEY AGE!!! THERE ISN'T A SINGLE SINGER OUT THERE WHOSE VOICE STAYS THE SAME!!! AT LEAST SHE HAS ACCEPTED HER MATURE VOICE AND GOES WITH IT RATHER THAN TRYING TO BE THAT YOUNG GIRL AGAIN. THERE'S SOMETHING TO BE SAID FOR GROWING OLD WITH GRACE. BUT AS A 30 SOMETHING YEAR OLD WANNA BE WHO STILL DRESSES LIKE A FUGLY TEENAGER, AND DROOLS AFTER LITTLE BOYS, WHAT THE FUCK WOULD YOU KNOW ABOUT THAT?



  40. 40

    I thought Whitney was ab fab considering all the crap she's been through.



  41. 41

    It was really really bad. she sounded fine at the AMA's…but last night was horrific!



  42. 42

    Someone needs to be honest with her, and let her know that it's over before she starts to really embarass herself. It's over Whitney, ain't nothing wrong with that. You were magic, but your time has come and gone.



  43. 43

    Re: pitseleh8 – Yes, I agree. She was f'ed up.



  44. 44

    She has no breath control anymore…has to stop in the middle of lines of the song to take another breath. Singers know that the control of breathing is VERY important when singing…she will never get it back. The damage to her lungs is way too bad from all the crack smoking to recover. Time for her to give it up.

  45. Laury says – reply to this


    45

    I think it was too soon for a comeback. She should've spent more time working on her vocals, she used to have one of the best voices of all-time, now she just sounds awful.



  46. 46

    its HER classic..



  47. 47

    She did her best was not that bad! Drama Queen Perez.



  48. 48

    It's HER song asshole



  49. 49

    Bless her. She is practically singing backing vocals on her own track! Also, is she pregnant?



  50. 50

    She sounded great at the AMA's ..this wasn't that bad..really..not nearly as bad as Adam Lambert…He even admits he sucked Sunday night



  51. 51

    It wasn't that bad Perez-Quit being such an ass



  52. 52

    She sounded good - but she should've sang it the way everyone knows it.



  53. 53

    People need to realise the old Whitney voice isnt coming back!



  54. 54

    she did great! stfu perez..



  55. 55

    I Wanna Snort With Somebody is more like it.



  56. 56

    drugs are BAD, mmmm-kay?



  57. 57

    Ruined her voice. Crack is whack!



  58. 58

    All those phony "Runs" that Randy Jackson loves so much on Idol are just a way to cover a voice that doesn't sound good anymore holding onto a note. She was ok, she was in tune, but it is SO obvious that she can't hit the high notes confidently and she can't sustain a note either. I mean come on.



  59. 59

    Maybe some vocal training could help.



  60. 60

    There are some people who should stick to singing over a track, and Whitney is now a member of this group.



  61. 61

    Well, her ARMY of back-up singers sounded great! Whitney kind of looked pregnant and maybe a little stoned? Liked the wig and the color yellow on her. Her original version of that song will always be one of my favorites…



  62. 62

    I don't think she butchered it at all…



  63. 63

    She was so bad. I hope she's not back on drugs….she appeared to be sweating during her FIRST song which was always a sign that she was HIGH. Her fans won't admit it but she has really lost her gift. She SQUANDERED it to drugs.



  64. 64

    That's Whitney? Seriously? I thought it was some 'America's got talent' imposter impersonating her. Frankly, that performance was tragic. I feel kinda bad for her. She has the 'wow' factor now for all the reasons. How very sad :(



  65. 65

    I believe she has lost her voice. That is what happens when you smoke.



  66. 66

    i was very disappointed shes a icon and now shes not that good



  67. 67

    it wasen't the best performance but for sure not the worst. I'm just so happy that she's back. go Whitney we love you.

    PEREZ….BEFORE YOU DIZZ WHITNEY FOR A BAD PERFORMANCE, YOU NEED TO REWATCH ADAM LAMBERT'S PERFORMANE ON AMA AND YOU WILL HAVE THE DEFINITION OF A BAD PERFORMANCE!!!!!



  68. 68

    ouch! she has no voice, god bless her for tryin tho!



  69. 69

    I'm not at all surprised. All the drugs she did really messed up her vocal cords. I knew when I heard her first single that she has lost the magic that was once Whitney Houston. Damn Bobby Brown! Lol…poor Whitney. She needs to stay away from ALL her old songs and just sing/work on the new ones. Much better for her that way.



  70. 70

    She needs to give upp.



  71. 71

    It wasn't that bad the back up singers save her performance they are singing more than she is and I actually think it sounded better than her AMA performance. She didn't really have to hit the high notes on this song since it does not require it like her other songs.



  72. 72

    She can't sing any more, that's been obvious since day one of her "comeback".



  73. 73

    Er hello! considering her age and the amount of drugs she's done over the years she sounds amazing! Go Whitney!

  74. Lucas says – reply to this


    74

    Are U kidding me - it was fine. Much better than gaybert this morning. This is her song and she can sing it however she wants - I enjoyed it, and the audience obviously did as well. Not sure where you are coming from?



  75. 75

    yaeh i saw it too she sucks now



  76. 76

    she didn't do that bad..she was fine Perez



  77. 77

    It def takes A LOT of windpipe and vocal control to sing that song so considering her pipes aren't what they are used to then that would explain the bad vocal performance.



  78. 78

    Poor Whitney! I feel kinda sorry for her, because she seems to be pleased with her performance. :(



  79. 79

    that was not singing. I was waiting for her to sing. Now I know what you mean when you says she "talked" through the song. What a let down!



  80. 80

    She wasn't that bad. Stop being so damn critical!

  81. apmom says – reply to this


    81

    She sounded just like ADAM GLAMBERT!!! What's the big deal!! You praise him and you diss her……NOT COOL!!!



  82. 82

    Perez, you need to post all the negative shit about yourself! You're fat, you dress like a queer, you kiss GAGA's ass for no reason but to be a famewhore…

    Whitney sang just fine, she changed it up, SO WHAT!!

    You're FUGLY GAGA does that and sounds horrible at times, yet you praise the shit out of her ass and eat it!



  83. 83

    I like WH, but it was appallingly bad. I saw it last night and was shocked.

  84. Soz says – reply to this


    84

    She didn't sing bad, she just changed up the melody..gosh. The dancers on the other hand SUCKED!



  85. 85

    Her whig is worse than her singing.



  86. 86

    is it me or does she seem winded



  87. 87

    While pondering Whitney's performance on DWTS last night, the words of the classic young artists CHRIS CROSS came to mind … Her voice is "WIGGEDY WIGGEDY WIGGEDY WHACK!"

  88. Mada says – reply to this


    88

    Re: softlips – She does sound winded. Her voice isn't nearly as strong as it used to be. I guess all the years of drug use and smoking has taken it's toll on her velvet pipes. It's a shame too b/c I loved her voice so much growing up. I hope with more singing she can condition her voice again and get better. She's not terrible, but you can tell she's out of breath and it's a lot harder on her than it used to be.



  89. 89

    Oh boy … lost glory …



  90. 90

    The voice is ruined beyond repair. She had THE voice, but unfortunately not any more.



  91. 91

    It's better than watching Adam Lampervert



  92. 92

    Whatever. She sounded out of breath but her pitch and tone wasn't completely unfortunate. Maybe she just needs to do some training or something to get the lung capacity back. She can still sing better than most fools out there.



  93. 93

    but…that's HER classic.

  94. obama says – reply to this


    94

    Higher than a kite, crooked wig. Again not singing….just talking her way through the unrecognizable song. Cracky McCrackerson



  95. 95

    A little raspy,but certainly NOT horrific! I do think that her voice will never be what it once was,but it's still pretty good.
    Perez,you're just a jealous idiot who's only claim to fame is being an ugly bitch!



  96. 96

    She's dropped it a few octaves but she did okay. I personally don't like it when she does this… I think it's a sign that she bored to death of singing that particular song… and changes it up to save from losing her mind…..understandable but it doesn't do her performance any favors…



  97. 97

    i dont like her new found talking through the songs.. and her voice sounds like it was hacked by a man… im sad.. but i guess that is what crack will do to you.



  98. 98

    Uhm whatever…you were praising her for her AMA-performance a couple of days ago (and rightfully so). It's true that she's more inconsistent than she used to be, but when in good form, she's still the best singer out there…And fortunately she's been getting more consistent as she performs more…
    Besides, she did another performance that night (of her new single Million Dollar Bill) and it was pretty good…



  99. 99

    At least she tries to sing,unlike your auto-tuned,one key mumbler Lady HaHa.



  100. 100

    I had stepped away from the tv last night when she performed, and when I heard the scratchy, off key wailing from the other room I thought "jesus, who are they letting sing now?!"…it honestly sounded like they were holding a mic up to someone in the crowd to sing along.
    awful. just awful.
    I know she's getting her legs back, and I commend her improvement…and frankly her balls for going on live tv with the scraps of what used to be a wonderful voice, but she needs to retrain her voice or something before she embarrasses herself again.
