Whitney Houston bombs in Australia

Concertgoers paying around $200 for a seat were less than impressed with Whiteny Houston’s during a performance at the Brisbane Entertainment Center on Monday night. To call it bad would be an understatement. It was absolutely terrible. Houston checked out after two songs and brought her brother to help her sing onstage.

One audience member said “She couldn’t entertain a dead rat.” To be fair, not a lot of people can considering it’s dead and can show no emotion.

Houston’s promoter, Andrew McManus, defended her and, at the same time, kept it realistic. Andrew admitted Houston’s throat was a little croaky but that she was hitting her high notes. Although he added that if you wanted to hear the Whiteny of 20 years ago, maybe you should build a god damn time machine and quit annoying him with your refund requests. Just kidding. He actually said you should buy her CD. No, really.

Is this a surprise to anyone? Whitney’s voice has been ravaged by drugs. She doesn’t even sing in the shower anymore. She just sort of stands there swaying under the hot water trying to keep the vomit down. All fans had to do was look up a few videos of Whitney from the past couple of years to see what they can expect. 20 years ago, Whitney sounded like an angel. Now she sounds like someone curbed stomped the angel, cut out their vocal cords and replaced it with a digital voice box that throat cancer patients use.

Everyone must accept the inevitable that Whitney Houston has damaged her vocal cords from drug use. Its that simple. It has nothing to do with her age because there are singers that are much older than she is and they still have strong, fantastic voices. And more than likely voice lessons is not going to help. Her voice is always hoarse now even when she talks. Although I am soo glad that Whitney was able to recover from her drug addiction and come back, it is ashame that she allowed drugs to destroy the gift that she was blessed with… Read more »

It is sad. I often wonder does she listen or look at her past performances. She had a gift from God of which she destroyed. She will never be that person again. She is horrible in public, her speaking voice is hard and hoarse. She looks older that she is. Whitney needs to retire. I would not go see her for free she’s a waste of time and money. Her performance is WACK
