Yes but the writer (David Foster) seemed ok with her performance and that is the ultimate compliment IMO.
I will admit when I heard she was singing it I though..gutsy move KAT I hope you do well...and I thought she really did. The judges act like Whitney OWNS the song...well for gosh sakes lets see a list of the songs they consider taboo then cuz Bab's Streisand OWNS the one Paris sang.
Probably 50% of the viewing audience ( young people ) do not even associate that song with Whitney and what they know of her from reading the tabloids is that she is a crack head.
I just don't get it.....their comments were rude! Randy even said he had some doubts at first , ( stammered) I don't know but it was a good choice, but then acted like if he said he approved he would be fired.??? very suspicious if you ask me. Paula was on her lips so it did not matter..she hates all the women anyway, and I'm getting sick of the if you can't say anything nice comment on their dress BS!! Simon was back to his old grouchy self ( maybe he and Paula got their drink glasses switched.).
