Christina Aguilera's Whitney Houston Tribute Met with Mixed Reviews


Last night Christina Aguilera paid tribute to Whitney Houston with a medley during the American Music Awards...



While the majority of Twitter dragged Christina to bits claiming she absolutely butchered the tribute, other celebs like Ciara and Pink praised the performance.

why do they keep going to christina for black icon tributes she also did one for james brown, when they should've went to a soulful black man. she over sings and is boring as hell. all these black women singers out here. but the amas are garbage anyway.

She was terrific - sang with heart and soul, like the music industry used to be!

LOL! My mother and I have gone toe to to over Christina vs Whitney. I find her overrated. She over sings and has very limited range. Dirty (when she was trying to pass as Latino) was her best era.
I get it, the AMA's needed a big name for the show but new music has little talent.

I didn't watch the show, AMA stands for white folks only awards.

I watched her performance, and it honestly made my stomach turn. I got sick to my stomach hearing her wail those notes and butcher Whitney's hits. She sang like she didn't want to do it and was just trying to get thru the show. It was truly awful. My favorite era of hers was Back to Basics and Bionic.

Meh she was okay. She didn't give me the same goose bumps, or make the hairs on the back of my neck stand up, and tears stream down my face like Whitney did.

Whitney can never be topped by what they call talent these days. Over singing like a mother. Whitney in her heyday made the angels cry.

Jealous ass white ppl still trying to be us. People from from the bottom of mankind say SIT THE FUCK DOWN WHITE GIRL.

CiError wish she had those chops!!!!

I never was a fan of her over singing, grates my nerves... Teena M. she is not.

She did good. I think she kept the integrity of Whitney's songs by respecting those subtle low notes and she also put herself into it. The performance seemed rushed because they ask you to perform 4 songs in 5-7 min. Its up to the artist to get the songs within that time limit. She definitely wasn't up there for 35 min. I only see ppl talking about how she sang "I will always love you"..what about the other 3 songs? Ppl just want to be negative because a black person didn't do the tribute. Monica would have been great but she's not a music insider. Everybody else with a voice would have just as loud as Christina.

Christina did a good job.... But DEBORAH COX would've killed it... Her voice comes the closest to Whitney's.

@10:57 Yea...Deborah Cox did the vocals for the Lifetime movie. But unfortunately not an industry industry insider. Christina did good.

No, Christina Aguilar did not perform Whitney Houston's songs well. Her timing was off. She didn't hit the notes. No wonder she relied on backup chorus. Her pitch was off. Her riffs were extended unnecessarily and in places that didn't require one.

The young Black woman, Amber Riley, from Glee does Whitney superbly and would have done a better tribute.

Christina does not have melanin/melatonin production levels within her cellular biology to transform sound wave energy frequencies into soulful notes and pitches in rhythmic melodies that move the listener.

JDent said...

@11:38

OK. Cellular sound waves. I am so with you. They forget melanin brings different and better to the table. It cannot be replicated. All these years of cultural appropriation and they still don’t they get that the talent is not up for the taking.

Listened for about 3 seconds, so I don't know. Did she scream, holler and do 5 minute runs. I'd rather listen to the REAL WHITNEY. May she rip.

DaisyDooks said...

@JDent - Indigenous Blacks are the MASTERS of SOUND. Our Base 8-coded space/time sound dialects or Mother Tongues are spoken in tone and pitch. We speak and move in sync with NATURE (natural forces).

Unfortunately, many western Blacks are ignorant of natural phenomenon that is sourced within their own biology/physiology. They DON'T understand their CELLS. If they did, there is no way in THIS cosmological universe that they'd see themselves or even produce a thought of being inferior to the race of straight-haired HUMAN APES from Asia who propagate their criminal homicidal/genocidal culture worldwide.

Many western Blacks do not know nor understand that thoughts initiate within cells, not in the electrical brain which controls brain sensory--sight, sound, smell, taste and touch.

Many western Blacks are conditioned via Caucasian Pathology to despise dark and black. As a result, they unwittingly despise their own MIND and SPIRIT, their own cellular biology and the Universe which is powered by DARK/BLACK (Pure Carbon Magnetic Wave Frequencies aka Pure Black Energy).

All that really matters is CELLS and FREQUENCIES!

Many do not understand that contempt for AfRAkan/Black/Negroid people is rooted in contempt of our non-recessive gene code.

Skin color is not the only genetic trait difference between AUTOCHTHONS and HUMAN APES.

I like it she has her own original beautiful singing voice. She made the song hers I don't think it was to sound like Whitney. She's her own Artist she made it her version can't deny her singing ability.

I would love to chat more about your obvious research and knowledge. I am a researcher. I find things hidden away. For a reason.

The English language is a variation of an African dialect. So when they didn’t want us to speak our own language they meant it literally.

Sometimes I think of some slang term. Immediately other blacks around the country are using the same slang. It’s as if we telegraph it to one another. Since it is written that first man was created in the image of a god I chose to call RA. Not only would we look majestic, we would be majestic too.

The word America was coined by indigenous ppl thousands of years ago.

Nat Turner was one of thousands if not millions that rebelled. Researching my family history, I came across a column on a census form that said that Black men could not vote if they were Suspected of or a part of a rebellion. There had to have been great upheaval from enslaved Africans for that column to be included on a federal document.

They couldn’t destroy the DNA. They settled for the mind. The state of Delaware was house of horrors in experimenting on Blacks. Partly trying to steal what RA gave us and when they discovered they couldn’t they tried killing us off. They still try but we still living.

I read the DNA of the Africans who survived the middle passage was the strongest in the world.

As far melanin. White ppl selling online. Where did they get it. I suspect dying blacks without families or maybe even funeral homes. When I visit Korean spas them hos so jealous.Why you no got wrinkles? How old you? You walk so erect. I chuckle. Cause they can’t be as majestic as I am. Thanks to my ancestors.

Amber Riley is SO talented. The best cover...she sings the hell out of Whitney Houston yet she still has her own distinct voice.

Candi Jimenez said...

Never had and issue with Christie vocals she is on the same level Patti LaBelle, Areatha Franklin
Anita Baker
Whitney Houston
give this chick a break!

prissa o said...

@DaisyDooks - PLEASE recommend a few books so I can get some of that KNOWLEDGE you have!! Thank you in advance.

listening to Christina as I text this. Now remember when one sings a tribute they are not trying to sound like them They are simply singing to honor them and yes Christina sung in her own tone she is definitely NO Whitney and yes they could've got some one else to sing her songs Like Monica. Christina sounds like a female Elvis country singer

Bye XTina. You can't touch Whitney. End of discussion. @8:25 As the beautiful, talented Stephanie Mills said, "they want r&b, they don't want it from us. They want it from Timberfake & A-whale."
