    Her voice is too much and not in a good way. She needs to tone it down if she wants any type of commercial success.

    Sorry couldn’t react on Bey’s performance earlier…she slayed me right from thev start with her 2 seconds of transformation from Beyonce to Sasha Fierce. The voice of a songstress, the s** appeal of a Marilyn Monroe, the grace of Sofia Loren and the poise of Diana Ross. Beyonce is a Legend already. Too bad so many people are too busy to hate instead of celebrating her achievements. After her, there’s like nobody left. Maybe maybe maybe Jordin Sparks if Mathew Knowles trains her but yeah, like I said, I don’t see no legend-in-training around here.

    As for JHud, she did great but y’all know Al green will put an Etta James soon enough. I’m happy for Kelly Clarkson and Jennifer, they are the reason why American idol will stay on air for at least 10 more years./

      wow!! oldyonce does not have a s** appeal. she looked haggard and does not know how to differentiate the appropriate occasional wear (clothing ) she was dressed in a evening attire loool!!! talk about ghetto, and horrible wig not to mention she looked 40+ years old. those deep wrinkles on both sides of her face. she looked like tina Knowles . the lip synching and pretending to making it about the ear plu. kelly has upstaged her.

    II loved Al Green, I love this song but a poor song choice for their first dance.

    Jennifer baby, you did too damn much.

    This is supposed to be an emotional formal affair not some damn soul train show backed by over the top vocals and awkward dancing. Michelle and Obama didnt know what to do. Had Jennifer sang the song in its oroginal form or turned it into a ballad then it wouldve been better.

    She sounded a hot hammy mess! That surgery she hid from the public like Star Jones has messed up her voice and my only dream for this girl is to go sitdown out of the spotlight she claimed she didn’t like with her only relevant hit.

    PRINCESS SWIFT is far better than all these tired mamas. Let the young mogul show them how its done! Only artist that’s moving units!
