Pop diva Whitney Houston made her first television appearance in the U.K. in 12 years during her eagerly anticipated comeback performance on Britain's reality singing competition X Factor on Sunday.
Houston performed her latest single "Million Dollar Bill" from her #1 album "I Look To You" complete with backup dancers and her own wardrobe malfunction whena strap at the back of her long silver dress snapped open.
But according to UK fans, it was Houston's lackluster vocals and loopy behavior (reminiscent of her past drug days) during her post- performance interview that have disappointed fans and provoked a barrage of negative comments on the X Factor website criticizing the singer.
One fumed: "What a huge waste of her talent. People should watch and learn what harm one can do to ones self. I hope for Whitney and all her fans she gets a grip and rejoins this planet."
It goes without saying that Houston has damaged the voice that made her a superstar, yet I believe fans have begun to accept the remnants of what once was and are rooting for her success.
Was she high during this performance? That's the great online debate. Take a look at the performance in the clip below and judge for yourself.
All I know is I love myself some Whitney and I'm pulling for her.
