    Default Whitney Houston - Report on performance at the Winter Olympic Games



    Shinan Govani, National Post
    Published: Tuesday, February 21, 2006

    "The Queen is back," was how Whitney was apparently introduced by the Italian host, but according to Tu, it was "a tragic event from the moment she stepped onto the outdoor stage." First off, there was the outfit: Even though there were reports that the diva would be wearing a Russian fur for her anticipated Olympic one-off, it looked to our eyewitness as more "faux synthetic" than "pelle lux." And with it, she had on a cream turtleneck and ill-fitting white nylon pants.

    Asks our Tu: "Don't you just hate it when apres-ski whites don't match?"

    So, about the singing. Starting off with Greatest Love of All, Whitney "coughed, sniffled and talked her way through the song." She motioned a cough attack and, struggling, asked the audience, "Why did they choose to do this outdoors? I don't sing in the cold. It makes my voice funny," and then made the international hand-gesture for "crazy."

    From there, it was on to her massive '80s hit, I Wanna Dance With Somebody (Who Loves Me). Tu's verdict? "Flat, and far from inspiring for anyone to actually dance." Midway, he says, "Whitney introduced her brother Gary Houston to take over so she could do a 'costume change'. He looked surprised and performed a soul track, while wearing a Sean John velour track suit."

    Then? Well, "Whitney reappears in a quilted zip jacket and fur military cap." An outfit that, according to our expert, was "marginally improved, but still resembles the quality of H&M." She then thanked and kissed husband Bobby Brown for "loving me and taking me here to the Winter Olympics." Cue the gospel.

    Finally, the singer belted out her all-time hit, I Will Always Love You, which quickly became "her all-time low moment during the two-bit concert." Unable to reach the high notes, Tu notes, "Whitney smiled, waved and winked to the fans. Karaoke drag queens can belt it out better! She knelt and bowed her head at the finale to thin applause."

    "Bobby," he wraps up, "held her hand and led Whitney backstage. The crowd roared and Ms. Houston rushed out for that quintessential encore, I'm Every Woman."

    Wow, she's really operating at a seriously deep level of self delusion. How did she get invited to perform in the first place? I thought by now everyone on the planet knew she was a crackhead..

    Was this supposed to be her comeback or something?
    Did she even rehearse? You can't fry your brain every day
    with rock cocaine and expect to remember lyrics, especially
    if someone else wrote them in the first place...


    /I have no idea whether she wrote her own songs.

    I can somewhat sympathise, singing out in the dry cold air will seriously impair your voice.. but then again, it could be all the rocks she was smoking backstage.

    The only one I can be sure of is "I Will Always Love You" - that one was written and originally performed by Dolly Parton.

    It's a shame, she had everything, and is still given all these chances, but she loves drugs more.

    I've heard that her vocal cords are shot from all the drugs. So sad because she was beautiful and had the voice of an angel at one time.

    The saddest form of reality TV> to witness people who had it all self destruct before a live audience, especially when it's such a slow, dragged out suicide

    I wonder how many squirrels had to die for her to look stupid.

    Didn't the article say it was faux, and a bad faux at that?

    It was a gamble, a long shot, but just think of the glory if she had really pulled it off. If she had looked and sang beautifully, with an absence of excuses, crass remarks and unflattering hand gestures, it would have been a moment talked about for years. It would have been all over VH1's Best of 2006, hey, even best of the whole decade. It would have been highlighted on CNN. She would have a billboard in Times Square. Hell, we've created commemorative plates for less achievement. She would have been the Comeback Kid of all time, the crowd would weep and cheer, the doves would be released, the clouds would part and the angels would sing...

    Instead, it's yet another entry in the Whitney Houston log of Unknowing Humiliation.
