    Dear God,

    I was wondering if we could have Whitney and Michael back in exchange for Justin Bieber and Rebecca Black. Surely you understand.

    Thanks,

    Really? So Celine wasn´t performing and not even there? What a letdown
    And Jennifer Hudson doing Whitney again and again. It seems they try hard to make her seem like that type of huge and timeless artist, and she is not. Anyway, I hope her imitation of that concert at Wembley is cute. We´ll see

    RIP legendary Whitney Houston. Hope the show is good

    I was hyped for the bet tribute to nippy but for some reason I guess its due to the performers on the line up im just not that intereste in this cbs special and i am a huge whitney fan. we already saw j hud tribute whitney at the grammys, usher was great for a michael jackson tribute but not whitney, yolanda already tributed whitney at the naacp image awards and did a great job. and cece sang at her funeral which was also televised. All these artist that are in the world who have been affected by ms nippy this is all that could muster? you might as weel just was these artist tribute whitney on youtube if you missed their tributes already. typical boring cbs so sad nip deserves better than that.

      PREACH!!

      This is about media manipulation and the promotion of certain artists who are either CURRENTLY ON TV e.g. Brtiney Spears, or those who arre making a COMEBACK SOON like Celine Dion! It’s not about getting the best or those more closely impacted by the DIVAS musical legacy!

    • ERIC October 12, 2012

      I agree with both comments.

    • Jessica October 13, 2012

      f*** CRACKANNA!!!

  12. mobwife: [email protected]# i’ll carry UR head October 12, 2012

    Hallie Berry is looking fierce! 🙂

    I will watch to see what they have put together to honor the LEGEND….THE VOICE……THE FIERCE DIVA…..WHITNEY HOUSTON! I am just displeased with the ppl they selected to tribute her. Where are: BRANDY, MONICA, FANTASIA, BEYONCE etc?

    I was there last night and let me tell you Cece Winans and Yolanda brought ChuuCh to the the Nokia, especially CeCe my god what a gift. I was excited for J. Hud and am a fan but honestly Brandy’s BET tribute SLAYED and I wish she or Monica would have been there. Usher did good too. I loved watching all the performances on the screen it was like a big youtube feast!! lol.. All in all there like 3 performances and Celine did now show…. I had an amazing time and my lord CeCe Winans I cannot get over..

    • KNUCK October 12, 2012

      yes ma’am.. you have me so excited.. I LOVE CeCe Winans.. really, when you listen to “Count On Me” it’s crazy how much she and Whitney sound alike at times.. They both possessed so much POWER and conviction.

      I also would have liked to see Brandy/Monica there.. I stan for Bran, but I would have just taken a monica performance.. she GOES on Whitney songs.

  14. credits October 12, 2012

    Alright, some great vocalists there but no Brandy and no Monica means i am not watching….

  15. Davon October 12, 2012

    They all look amazing except Usher. Where’s Celine Dion? Britney looks sensational

  16. MaZ October 12, 2012

    Seriously I’m tired of seeing Jennifer Hudson in every Whitney’s tributes and acts… Whitney was one of her inspirations like many but that’s it. She doesn’t look like her, she doesn’t sound like her!

    What about friends, collaborators and people she worked with like Faith Evans, Kelly Price, Deborah Cox, Monica, Brandy, TLC, Chaka Khan…?

    • credits October 13, 2012

      Yea, this is a total disregard of her friends, just for ratings.

  17. NIKKO October 12, 2012

    WOW Britney Spears looks TOop Notch she looks the best!!! Get iT mami…..

  18. RCW October 13, 2012

    Jennifer Hudson?! Ugh…she does a bad rendition of Whitney’s music! The way MONICA KILLED AT THE BET TRIBUTE….I can’t believe it….Monica set the stage afire for all that followed. I’m not watching

  19. ABCD October 13, 2012

    THey use JENNIFER for every tribute. she can sing and all that but there are other POWERHOUSE VOCALISTS that have known WHITNEY FOR YEAAAARSS Before anyone knew Jennifer. Jennofer is NEW!!! Artists like BRandy amd MOnica been around for ALMOST 20 YEars,, OTHER POWERHOUSE VOCALISTS LIKE DEBORAH COX, KELLY PRICE AND FAITH EVANS KNEW WHITNEY AND THEYWORKED WITH WHITNEY AND THEY BEEN ROUND WAAAAY BEFORE JENNIFER!! ITS THE SAME BORRING PEOPLE ALL THE TIME! THIS LOOKS LIKE A POPULARITY CONTEST TO ME NOT A SINCERE TRIBUTE!! THE BET AWARDS TRIBUTE WAS A TOUCHING, SINCERE, EMOTIONAL TRIBUTE!! THE BET AWARDS IS THE BEST WHITNEY TRIBUTE EVER!!! AND CANNOT BE TOPPED!! IT WAS REAL AND SINCERE!! P.S. BRITNEY SPEARS????? LMAAAAAO. I CAN’T

  20. sc October 15, 2012

    i agreed this is just a showcase for entertainers they are trying to promote. This has nothing to do with Whitney.White people still disrespecting Whitney. They disrespected her when they had a party while her dead body lay upstairs and now they are still disrespecting her for promotions and ratings. Ask yourself, do you think they would have allowed that party to go on if Cher or Celine Dion or even Brittney Spears dead bodies were lying upstairs. Also, how dare Jennifer Hudson copy off Brandy in tribute to Whitney. All other tribute before Brandy’s , the singers singed Whitney’s slow songs,including Jennifer Hudson. Now since Brandy has done an upbeat song by Whitney now Jennifer H. thinks she can do it too.

Brandy‘s career may have stalled and been stifled by poorly executed moves in recent years, but that’s done all of nothing to shake her status as one of Pop’s greatest success stories. Leading the way for the likes of then-teenagers Beyonce and Britney Spears in the 90s, the vocalist’s unmatched success on… Read More

Two harmless tributes turned into an all night, ongoing online smackdown between the fanbases of R&B singers Brandy & Monica.  Yes, the two may share a #1 hit and Grammy award thanks to their smash, ‘The Boy Is Mine,’ but – despite what appears to be continued beef between the beauties (nearly… Read More
