Glee - Whitney Week = Disaster


As we all know, this show sucks majorly, but I was interested when I learnt this week's episode would be Whitney-themed.

I had high hopes when Amber Riley started off the first 2 lines of 'How will I know' but then Lea Michele and her sterile voice had to jump in.
It went downhill from there. The cheerleader dancer chick singing 'I wanna dance with somebody' was beyond tragic. She's a great dancer but really?? Who thought it was a great idea for her to sing WHITNEY???? Just, no.

Then wheelchair girl and her anorexic voice dragged 'Saving all my love for you' through the mud. SMH.
The only thing that salvaged 'It's not right but it's ok' was they did the Thunderpuss remix (still needed more bass) and Darren Criss looked extremely sexy in that black suit. There should be a rule that you can't sing that song if you can't/don't sing and sustain the 'you were making a fool of me' line. It's sex with no climax without it, and that's what we got. UGH!

The feminine guy's voice was too weak for 'I have nothing', but I guess it wasn't a total disaster.
'Your love is my love' was ok, because it is not a demanding song, so they could all hack it.

This episode was an awful way to pay tribute to the amazing talent of Whitney.

I, too, only liked the part with Amber Riley in front of the lockers. I would've been happy to just see and hear her for the whole song in front of the lockers. But I'm not a fan of this show and whilst I think it was well intentioned and they all gave it their best, it just wasn't great.

For once, I actually loved the opening. But, as you both said, it was downhill from there.

As much as I like his character, Chris Colfer should be banned from singing anything.

This show is barely watchable on a good day, but this episode was so beyond horribly atrocious.

Well I loved the opening.
I cheerleader duet was cute. I think the fault was more in how they did the song then the actual voices.

Re: Glee - Whitney Week = Disaster

I'm sorry but you are talking total and utter bullshit.

Of course its not as good as Whitney she was the grestest voice of the past 50/60 years

And if you hate Glee so much why are you watching?

As long as that silly little toad, stops dry humping over Barbra Streisand, that is all I care for.

Re: Glee - Whitney Week = Disaster

I thought they did a respectable job. I mean it's not even worth comparing, so my mind didn't even go there. I think it was about honoring her spirit which I think they did rather well. I appreciated the show doing the tribute and applauded everyone's efforts.

If you hate a show why watch it for one week when its about someone in particular? Its not going to suddenly change overnight, why bother?

Re: Glee - Whitney Week = Disaster

point is that no one there is capable to join Whitney in her vocal tones
so they had two chances: do the tribute episode or definitely drop the idea

They chose to make it and probably the only huge mistake was to chose the annoying Rachel in one of the songs
her voice is way far from Whitney's notes

after all we are comparing an immortal diva with an annoying singing machine

and I wanna point out that I'm a fan of the show, it's not a heater whos talking
