  1. Fat, drunk, and ugly, Mariah! March 1, 2010

    1st! she needs to sit down and rest for a while, she’s done lost her voice!

  2. JAY March 1, 2010

    IS SHE REALLY SINGING OR WHAT??

  3. IRONY March 1, 2010

    THAT WAS LIPPED. THE FIRST 2 TRACKS FTL AND NBL ARE LIPPED AT EVERY CONCERT TO SAVE HER VOCALS (WUTS LEFT OF IT). SHE SUCKED ON OTHER LIVE SONGS SO SELECTIVELY CHOOSING “OK” VIDS TO POST DOESNT CHANGE THE FACTS SAMMY BOY… SHE FAILED TO FINISH IWALY AT HUNTER VALLEY. SHE POINTED TO HER THROAT AND TURNED TO HER BACKUP SINGERS AND SAID, “SORRY.. MY VOICE IS GONE.” SHE NEVER COMPLETED THE ENDING FALSETTOS, SAD!

    “TO DAZZLE AUDIENCES”??? LMFAO!!!!!!! SAM YOU ARE SO DELUSIONAL YOU’RE DELUSIONAL BOY YOU WASTIN YOUR TIME. YOU’RE CONFUSED YOU KNOW SO CONFUSED YOU KNOW…!!!!!!!!

  5. uhm.. March 1, 2010

    sam take off your stan glasses… she is lipping

  6. IRONY March 1, 2010

    LIKE I SAID, IF SHE WANTS TO TAKE SINGING SERIOUSLY INSTEAD OF JUST FOR THE $$$ SHE NEEDS TO WORKOUT WITH A TRAINER AND LOSE ABOUT 15 LBS, INTENSE VOCAL COACH WORKOUT, AND STOP THE F****** NEWPORTS!! SHE NEEDS TO VISIT REKNOWNED VOCAL SURGEON DR. ZEITEL IN BOSTON TO SEE ABOUT RIDDING NODULES, ETC AS HE DID FOR STEVEN TYLER AND RECOVERING JULIE ANDREWS VOICE.

  7. GeeMan March 1, 2010

    Even though the energy is on point you can tell this performance was lipped. But you can’t be mad everyone basically lips nowadays but at the same singers like Whit, and Mimi are held to a higher standard so its like damn if they do or damn if they don’t when they don’t hit the highest note they lost their voice and when they show what they got they are over the top or showing off.

    DEAD @ IRONY calling Sam

    “SAMMY BOY” hhahahahhaaaaa! I don’t know why I find that SO funny don’t ask

    BUT I agree with just about everything you said she needs to do to recapture her voice EXCEPT lose 15 pounds. Everything is not always related to weight and she is known for her vocals not running up and down the stage performing her weight is not the source of her problem, but those newports on the other hand is a different story. I’ve said it since she came back out that the cigs abuse over the years is what REALLY damaged her voice (don’t act like you didn’t notice the CHAIN smoking she was doing on that reality show w/Bobby Brown) not the crack PLENTLY of artists abuse drugs and it hasn’t affected their voice to this extinct BUT when you smoke cigs as MUCH as Whit did than well………

    WHY DONT YOU POST THE FACT THAT THE MOTHER OF JASMINA AMENA HAS THIS ON TWITTER? : “Apparently there are some negative blogs out there. For the record, Rihanna has been nothing but really nice !!! ”
    Her account was hacked you fucktard, you wish Rihanna would be a mean person so you could watch her fall and laugh her ass off, well, not really dude, try another time.
    Everyone can see that on “Oneforjasmina” twitter

    OH, and where the f*** is the post about Beyonce being in court again for stealing songs? This time is Bootilycious, ROFL

  10. MushyLove_1992 March 1, 2010

    @12345

    Are you ok?

    Anyways, it was lipped. But it still doesn’t take away the fact that she is “Whitney Houston”

  11. 12345 March 1, 2010

    @mushylove
    yes I’m ok thanks for asking, I’m just showing people how pitiful these bloggers are, trying to destroy someone that is inoccent.

    OT: Whitney Houston is getting on my nerves already, her voice used to be flawless, tho she never really had an really solid album, her voice even with the muscis I didnt would give me shivers,
    The fans have to listen with their ears, not their heart, they will notice that she only sings good now when she lypsinchs, which is really sad, I still love her tho

  12. bobs March 1, 2010

    She’s talking for a couple lines, then beeping, then breathing, then flapping her arms around like a sick pigeon.

  13. G.LaSalle March 1, 2010

    I think its a really good performance.

  14. parisian girl March 1, 2010

    poor whitney,it’s just sad…é__è
    lmao@”dazzle audiences”!
    sam are you ok?

  15. Alex March 1, 2010

    Her set isnt as grand as I would expect a Whitney Houston set to be

  16. Tyrell March 1, 2010

    You have to know she wasn’t singing… look it up! In one of the first concerts she even said she was lipping

  17. james March 1, 2010

    I’m sorry guys, Whitney KILT it with this performance and I don’t think she is 100% lipping. Some parts she is singing over backing tracks because I can hear her voice clearly so anyone who says she is lipping 100% , they hating.

    I’ve seen her perform this song like 5 times and each time it’s different so I don’t think they have time to make new backing tracks every 2 days. The dancing in this is also different from Japan/Korea.

    They also added the guitar riffing and huddling around the guitar player- that’s new and for goodness sake, Whitney is 46 and her dancing is pretty good.

    Mad props to her!

  18. truthteller March 1, 2010

    @tyrell- why the heck you don’t look it up- that performance of For the Lovers in Korea is so very different from this- the dancing is different, the singing is different and the guitar playing is different so you fail!

    Whitney was rocking out with this performance and I don’t know why Arista don’t releast this song. For the Lovers is a huge favorite of everyone. That hook is ri-di-cu-lous!!!

  19. AREYOUSERIOUS March 1, 2010

    DAZZLE?????
    I went to the 1st sydney concert and it was horrible – 200 people walked out not even halfway through! she was coughing and breathing all over the mic and then looked like she was going to collapse the whole time.
    You may be a huge Whitney fan but if you went to any Australian concert you wouldn’t be riding her so much.
    So you post one song out of the whole concert and say she dazzle’s Australia – bull s*** she just managed to get through that song ok but everything else was worse then Britney!!!!!!

  20. HUH? March 1, 2010

    DAZZLE…………………..What the F*&k sam you wernt at the concerts here so dont go saying she dazzle when it was far from it…..like someone said before me the coughing and breasthing was awful and i was with a group and two of my friends left and went to a bar before intermission coz she was terrible i stayed coz i love whitney but then she stuffed up i will always love you and that was it for me. I WILL NEVER BUY ANOTHER WHITNEY CD AND DEFINETLEY WILL NEVER GO TO ANOTHER OF HER CONCERTS $150 WASTE

  21. kelly March 1, 2010

    Awww sukisuki, get it mamawhit!

    She did good, i ain’t gon front, good job and loving the dancing.

  22. Dan March 1, 2010

    Whitney Houston will always be the greatest vocalist of all time. No one can take that from her. She may have lost her voice but she still set the stanard. And in “todays” music no one come close to Whitney’s kind of talent. So all the haters can try and make fun of Whitney now but I am sure the people judging her voice now still cant sing as well as her. AND LIKE WHITNEY SAID “TO ALL THE HATERS IN THE PLACE, i AIN’T SINGING TO YOU!!! I LOVE YOU WHITNEY HOUSTON AND I THANKS YOU FOR ALL THE YEARS THAT YOU GAVE TO US AND YOUR MUSIC. YOU WILL ALWAYS BE THE BEST AND NO ON CAN TAKE THAT FROM YOU. AND TO ALL OF THOSE PEOPLE MAKING FUN OF WHAT WHITNEY WENT THROUGH, PLEASE LOOK AT YOURSELF BEFORE YOU JUDGE SOMEONE ELSE.

  23. darealist March 1, 2010

    That performance was very good- not many 46 year old performaners have that stage performance – I appreciated that she didn’t just stand there and sing- she was rockin out- go whit!!!

  24. TheMan March 1, 2010

    this is clearly live and a great performance

  25. FUSION March 1, 2010

    Rubbish man – pure rubbish. What the hell is she doing? The self proclaimed non lip syncer acting like a hypocrite. She mimed the hell out of that song. Its not necessarily a bad thing that she mimed most or part of the song, its just that the way Whitney stans hype her up as the voice or as someone who doesn’t go on stage and lip, and she goes and acts like that. Its disgusting, cos the very same people jump on Mariah’s a*** when she does the same thing. And dont get it twisted, Mariah sings live at her concerts, maybe not on all tv shows etc, but when fans pay money, mariah f****** delivers. Its a shame people dont show her the same respect they show Whitney when she mimes or f**** up, like she has on this ‘tour’. People paying hundreds for a ticket and the loser cant even be bothered to get an original dance routine or make the stage look interesting. She’s a faker. Her comeback is fake, her newly tightened skin is fake. Her titties are fake. She needs to sit the hell down and see a doctor or therapist. Its disgraceful to charge fans that kind of money and treat them like that.

  26. IRONY March 1, 2010

    @FUSION

    HMM, YOU MEAN AS OPPOSED TO MOORIAH WHO STANDS THERE LIKE A FAT COW IN A DRESS 3 TIMES TOO SMALL WITH ZIP STAGE PRESENCE AT ALL??? B**** NAILED HER OWN COFFIN YEARS AGO. NOW LOWER IT INTO THE GROUND, DAYUUUMM BRO… BESIDES, THE TOP LIP SYNCERS IN THE MARKET ARE MOORIAH, CELINE, BEYAAAWNCE. WHITNEY NEVER PROCLAIMED TO BE AN EXPERT LIP SYNCER UNLIKE MOORIAH AND THEN PROCLAIM IT TO BE “LIVE”. *WINK*

  27. Khalil March 1, 2010

    Let me tell you something Whitney Houston’s performance was excellent. Some back tracking but you can hear he raw vocals and I love it. Haters get over it. For people to complain about her the shows are still selling out and there is more positive reviews than negative. So with that being said Go on Whitney, do your thing ma! We got your back. *TEAM WHITNEY* is in full affect. We dont care what yall think she has done well!

  28. X,Y,”and Z” March 1, 2010

    Falling-down onstage; hurling great-chunks of her previous meal; writhing-in-pain with THE-most disturbing case of flatulence imaginable; YET-STILL Whitney H can out-sing, out-dance and exhibit more “stage-presence” than one: Robyn Rianna Fenty!

    …You Aussies want disappointment? …Well-then, Rihanna is planning a visit to your fair-land; brace- yourselves! …After said-time, you’ll be pleading for a “WH revisit!”

    X,Y”and Z” — OUT!

  29. truehill March 1, 2010

    Whitney! Whitney! Whitnay!!

    look at chu ma, swinging them hips and dancing dirty, lol who knew

    she did great, no kidding. Good job Whit!

  30. caleb March 1, 2010

    Whitney is a live singer, good voice, bad voice, no voice, it’s Whitney!

    She is clearly singing the verses and then singing over backing tracks for the hook- i can hear her brother (the only male verse) also singing the hook so it’s a mash up of live and backing vocals for the chorus.

    I listened to the other versions and she’s singing live on the verses. this was a 5min performance if anyone bothered to check and she rocked. it. out!

    much respect Ms. Houston

  31. SHUTUP March 1, 2010

    Whitney is DEFINITELY singing the verses and just singing over the backing track for the choruses.

  32. JEFF March 1, 2010

    MARIAH MIGHT LIP SOME SONGS JUST LIKE WHITNEY HAS DONE IN THIS TOUR BUT SHE STILL SOUNDS GOOD AND DOES NOT STRUGGLE TO HIT NOTES OR COUGHS ON STAGE DUE TO SMOKING CIGARETTES. SMH.

    PLUS FYI WHITNEY STANDS THERE TOO , SHE DOES A LITTLE DANCE MOVE JUST LIKE MARIAH WHO TRIES TO DANCE SO IN NO WAY IS WHITNEY A BETTER PERFORMER THAN MARIAH JUST AS MARIAH IS ONE ASPECT IS NOT A BETTER PERFORMER THAN WHITNEY.

  33. tameka March 1, 2010

    Whitney did the damn thing in this performance.

    She shut it down, that song is the bomb- Arista is still for not releasing this song. I’d say she did more than a little moves, she was insync with the dancers many of times which means she was choreographed- loved it

  34. Jermaine March 1, 2010

    MARIAH SOUNDS LIKE SH*T… LOOK AT WHITNEY’S ALBUM SALES THEN LOOK AT HOW POORLY MARIAH’S LAST 2 ALBUMS SOLD. WHITNEY IS STILL DOING HER THING! GO WHITNEY!

  35. stan March 1, 2010

    “dazzle the audience”? i know you’re a fan, but cmon now

  36. March 1, 2010

    ‘MARIAH SOUNDS LIKE SH*T… LOOK AT WHITNEY’S ALBUM SALES THEN LOOK AT HOW POORLY MARIAH’S LAST 2 ALBUMS SOLD. WHITNEY IS STILL DOING HER THING! GO WHITNEY!”

    people don’t seem to get this relatively simple concept.
    sales =/= quality.
    your opinion =/= fact.

  37. TT78 March 1, 2010

    Mariah is not a live singer, so stop lying to yourself @Jeff. Besides, it looks worse on Mariah, because her voice is f%cked up and she don’t even smoke or do drugs. And you’re another lie, Mariah does not dance at her shows. Whitney does.

  38. BeyonceStan March 1, 2010

    Whitney was always a better singer and performer then mariah. it’s been sooooo proven. Im glad whitney did good.

  39. JEFF March 1, 2010

    W.E ALL YOU GUYS ARE MARIAH HATERS

    PLUS E=MC2 SOLD WAYY MORE THAN I LOOK TO YOU.
    1,200,000 VS 900,000 COPIES.

    AND PLEASE LOOK AT MARIAHS TOUR, THE CRITICS PRAISE HER VOICE, AND PRAISE HER SHOW SAYING HER VOICE IS STILL THERE UNLIKE WHITNEY WHO SOUNDS LIKE CRAP THESE DAYS. IS A SHAME WHEN YOUR NOT ABLE TO SING YOUR OWN SONGS.

    DO UR RESEARCH AND SEE THAT IN SUM SONGS NOT ALL THEM MARIAH MOVES AND TRIES TO DANCE JUST LIKE WHITNEY CUZ EXCUSE YOU WHITNEY MIGHT DANCE BUT SHE AINT NO JANET.

    I BET IF MARIAH TOOK HER TOUR TO AUSTRALIA SHE WONT GET HALF THE BAD REVIEWS WHITNEY GOT.

  40. GeeMan March 1, 2010

    Please stop making this Mimi vs Whitney battle because both women have had their good and bad days. As far as comebacks clearly Mimi is the clear winner yes memiors was dud compared to Mimi sales but E=mc2 was a platinum seller let’s not forget that and she also made history with album with her 18th #1 single which most never thought could be done after the mess of Glitter. But I am proud of Whitney for coming back from dead after that marriage to Bobby Brown. I feel like Whitney and Mimi have nothing else to prove they have set a standard for so many female artists in the game today. I am proud of both women for fighting their battles and pulling through. We as the fans should appreciate their continued hardwork and dedication to the music and their fans.

  41. laurie March 1, 2010

    good performance

  42. musiK March 1, 2010

    this is about Whitney’s peformance above not between nippy and mimi

    Whitney did good and I’m proud of her. she’s a fighter and when pinned to the ground, she always fights back. Good for her.

    I’m loving this sexier, raunchier, sassiser her, do u Whitney!!

  43. G.U.S March 1, 2010

    Mariah is better but love nippy

  44. Bobby from Bulgaria March 2, 2010

    Sam’s brain is… GONE… R.I.P.

    Where’s the story about Beyonce stealing from that Bulgarian designer, Sam???

    Ha ha ha… Are you still there???

  45. MushyLove_1992 March 2, 2010

    What a second. I got a chance to watch it over again, and Nippy didn’t lip that 100%. Overall it was a great performance. But you know whats funny? Even when she sounds a mess, she still sounds better than the fraudulent singers people worship this day in time. Now thats what you call REAL TALENT! Lol…

  46. Jark March 2, 2010

    My God, Sam really has lost it hasn’t it? Fom what I can see her audience are more frazzled than dazzled – the ones who stayed for the whole show that is.

  47. steven March 2, 2010

    The melodies, tones, power, soul and emotion that are displayed in some of Whitney’s recent concert performances really tell us why she’s known as The Voice. She is still the best LIVE vocalist today, she is truly the Queen of Music.

  48. Paul March 2, 2010

    “…continues to dazzle”?! Are you serious? Have you not read the news about how her tour is being receieved? It’s been universally panned. And this performance relies too heavily on a backing track. Sam is so full of s**t, if this was Mariah he’d tear her to pieces. But of course now he has his stan goggles on.

  49. Rob March 2, 2010

    Sam your precious Crackney needs to just end it all already!

    She has A***!
