Thanks Vickie!! But Guess what? I just watched the whole thing and I'm watching it again right now. Man the wonders of the internet!!! She sounded so much better than she has in such a long time. Man she's got some lungs on her. I got goosebumps still.

Hi Vickie;
This is good news, had I known she'd be on the show, I would have watched it. Maybe they'll repeat it, I hope!!:-)

I wouldn't have even watched the awards if it hadn't caught her on ENTERTAINMENT TONIGHT an hour before. She and Clive Davis announced that they would be working together again, and then it was revealed that Whitney was also going to be performing that night.

I must say, she did herself proud. I'm still getting used to the somewhat overdone melisma that's she's been doing recently. But her voice was very strong. Every time she went for a high note, I held my breath. But she did them all. I felt so happy for her. I hope this is a new beginning.

She seemed to have a moment on the stage ,where she was happy to be there and you can tell she had come far..

it was emotional, the last time I saw her on a show - it broke my heart...

she is prime and if that is a hint of whats to come with her and Clive then I am VERY HAPPY!!

She really seemed to be appreciative of her audience and the fact they appreciated her was so awesome..It was one of those woenderful TV moments, where nothing was said but everyone was feeeling the same thing...

I saw that happen with Natalie Cole on stage live once, her first singing debut after all of her probelems.. Not a dry eye in the house...

Hi Vicke!

I agree with you a 100%.

Whitney sounded & looked good. Each song she did sounded like it was 1/2 step down (in key), and both songs ended in their original key. I got a lil misty myself.

God is STILL working MIRACLES!

SDF I noticed the key thing too. But it didn't matter. Her voice is soooo powerful. She wasn't perfect but when it mattered she delivered. Man God definitely gave her a gift. Anybody see Bobby?
I didn't.

I noticed it, too. No modulation toward the end of the song. For a second, I thought she was continuing the song off-key. But no, it was the same key. It seemed as if she was playing it a bit safe, possibly to stay within her limits.

I really can't understand why Whitney's last cd didn't get more notice it was very good .But I guess people were caught up in her drug use to notice she was making good music .Shawn

Lucy I don't know about "Demons" Gone but I hope at least she's able to deal with them it looks like now .I think the full recovery road still might be a long and winding one .Shawn ps Now if we could just get Dionne off the smokes all would be right w/The Drinkard Singers

I thought Whitney's last album was pretty good. A bit skimpy in length. But I like quite a few of the songs on it. Unfortunately, it was released during the fallout from the Diane Sawyer interview, not to mention the phone call to Wendy Williams.

Gary,

The call to Wendy Williams happened many months ago, it may even have been the end of last year. Whitney called into the Wendy Williams show and was quite beligerant and incoherent. Wendy asked her questions about using drugs, and she became irate, used curse words and challenged Wendy. It is a very old issue
