Singer Whitney Houston is said to have left her fans angry and walking out on her at her Acer Arena concert in Sydney. According to the Daily Telegraph, what had started out as a great show on February 24, turned sour after Houston, 46, returned to the stage following a 13-minute costume change.
Her acoustic set of old favourites unfortunately could not hide the very obvious problems with her voice, with the strain and coughs that punctuated the Brisbane show coming back. By the time she got to the gospel section of the show a steady stream of disappointed, saddened and angry fans started streaming out the doors. “Some of it’s been beautiful and some it is just horrible,” News.com.au
– She should prepare better for the show! People are paying to see her perform!
With 17 more names being added into the semifinal list, contest for “Idol” champion has become more stronger. A number of early favorites have advanced into the last 24 including Andrew Garcia, Crystal Bowersox, Katie Stevens, Ashley Rodriguez and Haeley Vaughn.
Last night’s show was a bit more quick phased than Tuesday’s torturing two hours. First woman singer who ventured into the final round on last night’s show was Orlando’s Janell Wheeler. Janell’s Hollywood round witnessed both ups and downs as she presented Estelle’s “American Boy” to a blown take of Taylor Swift’s “Love Story.”
Chicago rocker Bowersox attracted both a bid and nailing for her take on Crow”s “If It Makes You Happy” during Hollywood week. Bowersox showed photo of her young son, Tony saying that, “I feel like I can surprise all of you … I’m very glad I came.”
Katie Stevens, one of the teenagers of this “Idol” followed. Stevens, who presented the tale of her Alzheimer’s-stricken grandmother, shined in the Hollywood with her take on Stevie Wonder’s “For Once in My Life.”
Anyway, it is public knowledge that Maddy auditioned in Boston and made it to Hollywood. What’s not public knowledge yet is what happened there. I have no way of knowing whether any footage of her in Hollywood will make it onto the show, but in case you are watching, the Hollywood episodes are just around the corner.
I will say that no matter what happened, Maddy has made us very proud – Her voice is one of a kind :)
Jackson sang from childhood, and over time his voice and vocal style changed noticeably, either through puberty or a personal preference to align his vocal interpretation to the themes and genres he chose to express. Between 1971 and 1975, Jackson’s voice “descended ever so slightly from boy soprano to his current androgynous high tenor”.
When commenting on Invincible, Rolling Stone were of the opinion that—at the age of 43—Jackson still performed, “exquisitely voiced rhythm tracks and vibrating vocal harmonies”.
On June 25, 2009, Jackson collapsed at his rented mansion on North Carolwood Drive in the Holmby Hills area of Los Angeles. Attempts at resuscitating him by his personal physician were unsuccessful.
—– You know the game ends when there is a musical.
But Stuart said there might be some guest spots for former housemates in the musical.
When he was in the hosue, love blossomed between fellow housemates Helen Adams and Paul Clarke.
But the business consultant had blunt advice for this year’s contestants, saying: “If you’re looking for love, don’t find it on national TV.”
Stuart continued: “I think there is this huge expectation that once they’ve done something like Big Brother, they almost think there’s an expected media career that comes out of it, and actually you have to work for it.”
The married father of three hasn’t ruled out future reality television appearances, saying he’d like to appear on Dancing On Ice if the money was right.
“If someone will pay you 50,000 quid for learning how to skate, then great – put me down for it,” he enthused.
—– Better have something going on than doing nothing to appease the viewers. Oh well, that’s just me.
