Joseph Hardaway : why doesn't everyone respect each artist for their contribution?!! Whitney Houston did pave the road for many of the new artist coming up. Whitney has passed the torch to Jennifer Hudson and Jennifer will pass it to another aspiring vocalist. Not everyone will be able to receive the torch to pass it on. But those that are able to receive and carry and pass on, Let them do so. give them some due credit.

Chicken Little : Fergie secretly sucked on purpose to get us all back into the national anthem.

George Tarrega : Damn those belts are so powerful, her runs were so good and not overdone, her transition of chest voice to falsetto at the end was so so so good. This is better than beyonce's rendition.

감성태라太儸Tera : just amazing anazing what more can I say?
