Man Made BITCH! I swear these FAGGOTS call men are getting out of hand, commenting on a women show called Divas and taking jabs is really Andy Cohen(GAY).

He's speaking as a fan and someone who knew her personally.. Whitney was called the VOICE for a reason and although they did a very good job there was no comparison..it's obvious that's what he meant..people stay reaching and assuming

My my my, isn't he being a messy queen today

He's absolutely right. That line-up was PITIFUL. When paying tribute to WHITNEY HOUSTON'S *VOICE*, there should have been some REAL SINGERS UP there. Aguilera, Knowles, Carey. Matter of fact, they should have just played Whitney's songs over the speakers.

I swear, this is why the music industry is so fucked up. No one is open-minded when it comes to true talent anymore. They only want "full packages": Supermodels that can get half-naked and sing disposable pop music.

This ugly, greasy faggot needs to understand that NO ONE WILL EVER SING LIKE WHITNEY! So what? They are not suppose to! They have their own style! All three ladies can sing very well. That's the bottom line.

AND THE DONNA SUMMER TRIBUTE WAS WORST THAN THIS ONE

@1:51:

As much as I like Mariah Carey (as a singer, not much her music), her voice has dried out. She needs to reapply to vocal classes!

And as far as (Beyonce) Knowles, no comment. You must be a Beyonce stan.

You must only listen to music on TV and on the radio because there are better singers out now like Chrisette Michele, Janelle Monae, Jennifer Hudson, Fantasia (despite her hoodratness), Esthero, Jill Scott...I named enough.

Although the ladies in question are talented, I do understand Harrell's point but I don't agree with his putting down them down in regards to their performances on the show. Houston's voice cannot be matched is an understatement that didn't need mentioning and needlessly in a way that could be regarded as condescending to some.

Anonymous said...

Now of all the 3, Ledisi can BLOW. All of them are talented in their own right but it was a tribute, not a contest of who could/would/should be the NEXT Whitney as there was only 1.

@Hazel I Girl... LOL; u right.

Is Andre Harrell even RELEVANT nowadays?

1:59, How shallow and idiotic are you to assume that because I mentioned "Knowles", it means I MUST be a "Beyonce stan". Just because she personally affects you doesn't mean she personally affects me. I mentioned singers whom I (key word: I) thought would have been better candidates to contribute to this show. Those less than stellar singers you mentioned don't even have the range to pull off a Whitney song. Please refrain from commenting further. Your stupidity and ignorance are showing.

He should have kept that comment to himself. Matter of fact if you are over 40yrs old just please stay off twitter. It is becoming re-got- damn-diculous with all of these personal opinions about nonsense. Stop it already.

I think there was nothing wrong with what he said. It was his opinion. And quite frankly, he was right. If you can't do a tribute concert the correct way, don't do one at all. Also, people need to get over themselves. Opinions will be here...forever.

Perhaps they could have gotten a person that is unknown who may actually have a similar sound to Whitney. Shit if the truth be told Whitney didn't sound like Whitney. Mariah Carey is not a person that could have done a Whitney song, there voices didn't sound the same at all. The women that performed sound good singing the songs that are written for them. Whitney's voice was ok, but i'm sure that there is/was someone that could have song her songs just like she did. If she were alive would we really be doing all of these tributes to her...no. When she did the diva show many years ago, people talked about how bad she sounded back then.

Anonymous said...

2:42, Whitney's voice was "ok"? You people are so miserable.

Whitney couldn't sing her own songs the last few years of her life. her live performances were always weak.She had the coke sweats. I bet they did fine.

Advise from Auntie said...

It's a tribute not a singing competition! These women admired Whitney and was paying respect. BTW Tony Award Winner Heather Headly will star in the stage version of the "bodyguard" and yes she will bring it vocally.

Anonymous said...

2:51 Exactly, once the drugs started affecting her, her voice was shot.

2:44 Whitney sounded trouble in her last 8 years maybe even more. Many people talked about her singing and how she wasn't who she used to be. I am in no way talking about her singing when she first came out...but I will say that as time went on she started sounding really bad, it's just a fact. She was on some show that I can't think of right off hand, but she sounded bad. How about you google her on VH1 diva's when she was the featured diva, and she sung I will always love you. She was trying really hard to sing that song and it wasn't what it sounded like when she first sung it in the movie.

Whitney's voice was just okay? You need a earring aid silly bitch!!

3:08 Bobbi Kris is that you? Whitney was a crackhead, and she died because she loved to get high. It just is what it is. And yes in her last years her voice was bad.

Whitney's legacy is bigger than the drugs and her voice in the latter years because of the drugs and alcohol..if the only thing you can remember about someone is their darkest days then I pray and hope you stay PERFECT

Anonymous said...

omg @331 you said it so well.

You are correct. Whitney was on drugs but that voice that GOD gave to her can never be touched. Also, people who judge are miserable I use to be one who judged alot so I know. The ones who judge how good is your life really and what is your ACCOMPLISHMENTS? I will wait........

Let me first say that my days are great and my nights are even better. When Whitney was alive no one and I mean no one was giving her her so called props saying that oh Whitney you sound really good. Everyone and I mean everyone left her out in the cold. I didn't see one so called friend of hers saying Whitney is the best she is coming back she is so good...No. Everyone made sure that they put distance between themselves and her. Her own daughter even said on the Houston's show that "when my Mom was alive nobody had anything nice to say about her". Now every time you look someone is doing a tribute. Her own child didn't even go to the tribute that they had for her in California I think it was. So am I focusing on the bad...no I'm just focusing on what was out there. If no one ever said anything nice or showed her in a wonderful light, what do you think people are going to talk about? Look up the last 5 stories about Whitney before she died and tell me if they were complementary to her? I think not. I am only speaking what was put out and what I saw of her. Was she a wonderful singer when she first came out...yes. When she left this earth in the physical sense did she not sound like she did in the beginning...no. I am only saying what some others have said and what some other's are saying.

Whitney ain't sound like herself in the end, it's just true. Nobody wants to hear it, but it's real. I ain't made at you 3:47.

Thank you to who ever said Jill Scott doesn't sing but she recites. I can't stand her dumb ass. Fake conscious twinkie eating ass.

Queen Harrell is actually right. What the hell were they thinking??? Blondie tribute was garbage too. Everybody needs to be fired if the biggest DIVA is the male host. Keri stand up straight!

Jill Scott is a poet who sings. Ledisi, Jordin Sparks, and Melanie Fiona are all great vocalists. Beyonce is a terrific singer. Fantasia and Jennifer Hudson are screamers. Mariah Carey is not the same Mariah Carey but she was one of the best. Whitney in her prime was in her OWN lane so EVERY tribute will fall short if you're going by competition. And whoever mentioned the Prince tribute at BET, he chose all those performers, specifically female because he doesn't like males singing his songs.

Carry on.

Are you implying that Trey Songz crashed the tribute?lol

Whether he was invited or not, he was the only performer I wish had stayed home.

Anonymous said...

why didnt he say that when jennifer hudson messed up her song.

Anonymous said...

i understand and agree with harell.Yes Whitney destroyed her lovely voice,and it wasn't the same.However when performing a tribute, it's not about outsinging the original performer, It's about giving your own showstoping rendition.Knowing you made the person who's song your singing proud. And those three didn't come close..

Anonymous said...

It was very rude of him to tweet that, but hey it's his opinion. However, Jordin Sparks, Ledisi, and Melanie Fiona have real talent. I think he was being a little harsh. I could understand his disdain if they chose people who didn't have great vocals like Ciara and Rihanna, but the 3 women that were chosen to do Whitney's tribute can actually sing. No one will ever to be able to match Whitney's talent so to diss people who can't match her talent is stupid. She was a once in lifetime type of artist like Michael Jackson, so it's unfair to always compare her to other singers because they can only do what their own style, not Whitney's style. I agree with what a person said earlier. This is why new talent can't be welcomed with open arms, because we are always comparing legends to the newcomers. It's an endless argument that leads to nowhere. Just let people use their gift the best way they know how, and end the comparisons.

Oh please. Christina oversings. If she was in the tribute, she would be so busy trying to outsing everyone else just like she did on the Aretha Franklin tribute at the Grammys. Beyonce oversings too. She yells out of her range all of the time and would be trying to outdo other people too. That's why most of her collabos aren't good. Mariah has lost her multi octave range a long time ago. She can only do soft registers. So no, they would have not done better than the ladies chosen. Besides Jordin, Melanie, and Ledisi can sing. It's not like they are studio singers who can't hold a note live. All three of them are talented. No one will come close to Whitney, so if that it was people were looking for, that was foolish of them not these ladies who were asked to do the tribute.
