    Whitney is unique. The best of all time.

  2. Boricua April 30, 2010

    Mo shouldn’t have tried that. That song is so utterly Whitney’s.
    FAIL

    OMG…fell on the floor. Monica’s version of “I Will Always Love You” was 2 funny. She had all of Whitney’s mannerisms 2 a T. From wiping the sweat of her face…to the dramatic long pauses Whitney does…lol. Vocally, Mo is crazy…love it…love it…love it. Vocals, personality, stage presence A+++++. Thx 4 posting.

    whitney cant sing anymore, sad. right now, Monica beats her ass by a mile. whitney sells out London O2 and people walk out disappointed. what a trainwreck!! yet Monica can still sing and cant sell out theatres. whitney is a tragedy these days. what a shame. methinks the actress who play whitney’s story in a film will win an oscar. has every element the academy looks for in a tragic drama.

    I love the leg lift at be, time 5.04. I love Monica, but i wished on this album she did some more runs and showed some more range.

    I think that KeKe Whyat’s alum was good and over looked which is a shame.

  13. Khalil April 30, 2010

    This is simply great! While I do love me some Whitney, pre and post Whitney might I add, Monica killed it. Her performance was hot. I love how she acted like her. With the towel, the tea lol. Go Monica this is your year girl!

    She is not dancing around the stange and she still entertains. YES Monica YESSSSS!!!

  23. RhiRhithegoatkiller April 30, 2010

    Monica did the damm thing. Yes she killed it. I am so happy for Monica and that she has re-emerged back into the music scene. Just love her voice and yes she did really honor her idol better than her idol herself. Some of my best black female artist are Monica, Beyonce, Mary J Bliege,Fantasia,Tony Brantxon, Alicia Keys and I’m feeling Deondra and musicially i would love to see some duets between these artists.

    monica is a fool lol love her!!! i wish i couldn’t seen this show.she is so right about there never being another whitney…baby you give good love!!!

  33. TheWise April 30, 2010

    Monica acting a fool while singing Whitney songs sounds WAY better than that chick that paid tribute to her at 2009 BET Honors. Gurls better call their vocal coach because that Monica reign just won’t let up. AMAZING performance and what a vocal beast.

  34. Jermaine April 30, 2010

    WHITNEY CAN STILL SING

  35. Princess P. May 1, 2010

    Monica was phenomenal. What a great tribute to Whitney Houston. Whitney is, and will always be the greatest. Incomparable and irreplaceable. Forget the negative media and how they are trying to bring Whitney down. Great tribute Monica!! Nice to see some of Whitney’s celebrity friends standing up for her publicly!!!! Whitney has survived. Great voice Monica. You are one of my favorites.

  36. antertain May 1, 2010

    Mo was funny doing the Whitney actions she loves Whitney and was really cool with a Tribute to one of her greatest inspirations.

    Whitney always told people about Monica and her talent and Monica showed great love to Whitney in a time where things haven’t been great vocally for her.

    Greatfully real artist understand that Whitney will forever be known as GREATNESS as her voice captured the GLOBE.

    On “You Give Good Love” Monica went in hardcore with the Miss Thang swagger..

    STILL STANDING!!!!

  37. Keekster May 3, 2010

  38. SG3 May 3, 2010
