“I just really want to say thank you to everyone who supported us through it all, not just from when it was good, but when it was bad, to just everything.

People's intuition are

People's intuition are usually on point. Apparently Pat Houston is a snake. Too bad. She's getting all this negative press now that Whitney's gone. I wonder what her relationship with Cissy is like? O-o!

U know! I'm like....are we listening to the same performance? Jordan rocked it, but she put JORDAN on it, no one can do it like Whitney. But give the girl some credit, her voice is like that of an angel and that's a difficult song.

Pat Houston is a PIMP and a HUSTLER. You have to pray for Bobbi Kris, with someone like her around. Hopefully people will wise up and boycott her reality show.

REALLY? Which video were you

REALLY? Which video were you watching/listening to? And if you did watch/listen to the same as the rest of us - then instead of posting comments you need to see an ear specialist ASAP!!! Better yet, SAY NO TO HYDRO - obviously not the right drug of choice for you. Jordin Sparks has sung the best rendition thus far - she hit every note - and has beautiful range. Please don't have your FREEDOM OF SPEECH priviliges revoked.

I saw the ring and I've

I saw the ring and I've always admired the ring as it was the ring Whitney always wore. It's very fitting for Bobbi Kris to wear her mothers jewlery. I'm sure it makes her feel very close to her mother. She's not preggers, she just has a little belly, many of us do and it especially shows when wearing fitted clothing. Let the child be. She needs so much love and enouragement. It's very hard to loose ones mother and at such an early age, I'm sure she feels lonely and lost most days. Her mom was her world, her support system. Those of us who are fortunate to have our moms are truly blessed. Alot of us would be broken in the wake of loosing our mom at such an early age. I talk to my mother every day, I would be lost and without her as many of you would too were this to happen to you. God bless this young lady who has to grown into adulthood without the love and support of a mother.

Having Miss Cissy up there

Having Miss Cissy up there with her grand-daughter would have been the most appropriate thing and barring that her brother Gary who sang with Whitney. Why did they even have Pat up there speaking.

1. Aargh! Pat Houston is so

1. Aargh! Pat Houston is so slimy to me! Why is she on the stage? Just to say that Bobbi should accept the award? GOH! 2. Brandi made me love her THAT much more with her reaction in the audience 3. Who are those 2 heifers in the front who refused to stand? 4. Can any of these award shows produce a tribute deserving of Whitney?

Okay, why is John Legend

Okay, why is John Legend doing the George Benson version of the song? No ma'am. These performances show why Whitney will never be replicated. No one can do it better.

First of all, how is it

First of all, how is it incest when they aren't blood-related!? 2nd, she didn't even bring him up there. All he did was walk her to the front & helped her up the stairs. Stop being overdramatic. Have several. -_- \_ \_ \_ \_

I'm sorry, I saw this live,and I think they would've done better by just simply playing whitney's original version of the songs, because when other people sing it, it's just blah.

Whitney being gone is still

Whitney being gone is still so surreal to me, so I can only imagine how it must feel for Bobbi Kris who spent each of day of her life. R.I.P. There will never be another. She and MJ were truly in a league of their own.
