    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.

    • B-E-Y-S-U-S Is our GOD January 21, 2013

      EXACTLY THE B**** IS LOUD & CAN’T CONTROL HER VOCALS…

      • WTF January 22, 2013

        Urgh. Is she still doing covers. Most overrated wedding singer ever.

    • truth(slayer of icki funky ass stans B****!!) January 22, 2013

      AGREED!! and i love JHud but chiiiile…and they talk about Tasia screaming. Atleast she knows how to tone it down and isn’t AAALLL over the place.

      • YsoSERIOUS January 22, 2013

        Damn haters calm yourselves down and appreciate her amazing voice! Today’s music industry full of no-talents and whisperers seriously has you all brainwashed into thinking people with actual voices CAN”T F***** SING. Ri-F*****-Diculous! This is what a real singer sounds like.

      • truth(slayer of icki funky ass stans B****!!) January 22, 2013

        And YOU are what a real FOOL sounds like, h**! I never SAID she couldn’t sing, she has an AMAZN voice. I said she sounded a hot steamin mess singn at the inaugarual…GURL!

    PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE tone it down.

    • truth(slayer of icki funky ass stans B****!!) January 22, 2013

      chile pleeeease

  6. DDN January 21, 2013

    Im soo glad Beyonce stayed subdued with her performance and did not take inspiration from jhud cuz woaaaah her bobble head ass broke almost my headphones not a good way to start a second term with a scream fest…

  7. B-E-Y-S-U-S Is our GOD January 21, 2013

    Barak n Michelle are a cute couple

  8. MISHKA January 21, 2013

    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./

    • B-E-Y-S-U-S Is our GOD January 21, 2013

      I agree beyonce is definitely already a legend

    • Kate Middleton January 21, 2013

      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.

      • truth(slayer of icki funky ass stans B****!!) January 22, 2013

        girl go under the nearest tree and lay down and die.

  9. Cream January 21, 2013

    I hate this B**** singing ugh Beyonce Song from her ablum Iam sasha fierce At last>>>>>>>>> (:

  10. Hive January 21, 2013

    Gawd this girl has the most annoying voice

    Beyonce slayed today so proud

  11. Cream January 21, 2013

    I hope Beyonce working on a At Last part 2 Because she did the damn thing writing that damn song and when she perform it lawd so much sold

    • ƸӜƷ MC ƸӜƷ January 21, 2013

      You have GOT to be kidding me. Now I know you’re trolling and I’ve already exposed your ass.

      • SIP YOUR PEPSI AND WATCH YOUR B**** FLOP IN 2013!!! WHILE RIHANNA SLAYS!!! January 21, 2013

        Lol!! mc gworl these stans pissed me off when they came for whitney the great

      • B-E-Y-S-U-S is our GOD January 21, 2013

        Whitney who? oh yea the dead lady

  12. ƸӜƷ MC ƸӜƷ January 21, 2013

    She did good except for the over-singing part which she often confuses to being “soulful”.

  13. christinastherealtalent January 21, 2013

    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.

  14. Cream January 21, 2013

    Why is this nosey ass Mc b**** allways in my business damn get of my p****/D***

    • SIP YOUR PEPSI AND WATCH YOUR B**** FLOP IN 2013!!! WHILE RIHANNA SLAYS!!! January 21, 2013

      She hates dumb b****** like you

    • B-E-Y-S-U-S is our GOD January 21, 2013

      the b**** is annoying as s*** I can’t stand mc fake ass she needs to mind her own business she needs to be worried about her voiceless fav Mariah

  15. Cream January 21, 2013

    Every time I post some she allways in my damn business like a old ass lady but then she is a Mariah fan so I guess.

  16. tits mcgee January 21, 2013

    J Hud did a decent job. Some people are a bit to critical if its not there fave. A few problems here and there but overall, pretty good. Congrats J Hud!

  18. Colosoul January 21, 2013

    JHud ain’t no pitty patty type of singer…You already know before you look at it that she’s gonna belt..That’s her style…If you don’t like her style then you just don’t like it…She has a powerful voice…but to say she no control makes you sound dumb as hell…She has incredible tone, control and range. Good job. And that’s coming from another sanger…:-)

    • Lax January 22, 2013

      HATERS DON’T LIKE JENNIFER STYLE BECAUSE BEYONCE IS A BELTER ALSO BUT THE DIFFERENT IS JENNIFER DON’T POP HER PUS LIKE THE STRIPPER BEYONCE DOES. AND JENNIFER SLOWED UP AGAIN AND STOLE THE SPOT LIGHT FROM BEYONCE, BOO, BOO.

    Anyway Obamas are just a strong chocolate couple.
    Wish them all the best

  30. TAYLOR SWIFT THE REAL TALENT January 22, 2013

    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!
