Great job last night -- but I really hope that you are planning on singing an oldie tomorrow on Dancing With The Stars. In order to see if you still got it, I need to hear you really belt out one of your old songs. You were definitley, at one time, the best singer in the world. I hope you still are...

Great performance, Whitney. Any lingering doubts that people had about the state of Whitney's voice should be put to rest after the AMA's. Whitney had a POWER in her voice that has been missing for years, and she put everyone on notice that she can still blow the roof off. Although some people still choose to compare her current voice to the Bodyguard, since they just miraculously realized in 2009 that Whitney doesn't sound like the Bodyguard anymore. People were waiting for Whitney to fail like Britney Spears did at the AMA's a few years ago, and she proved them wrong.

While Whitney still needs to work on her breath control, the emotion and delivery in her voice is still just as strong as ever. And while most of the performers had to use special tricks and dancers to highlight their performances, Whitney just stood her ground and used her voice, poise and charisma to steal the show.

I could hear your testimony through your delivery of song. It's awesome how God lifts up a standard in us, and gives us what we need to find that strength we had deep within all along. After that perfomance I started feeling some Doddtown pride, from the old neighborhood back in the 70's when we grew up there. Great performance, so happy to hear your music again........

Last night on the AMA's I thought you blew the crowd away!! I feel your pain because like soo many others I've fallen time and time again but by Gods grace and mercy I've alway been able to get back up. And when I come back I'm stronger and wiser than I was before. I know that God has done the same for you and I pray that He will continue to bless you. You're an amazing woman with a voice that no one can ever replace. . . I love you Whitney!!

Whitney, this was truly a marvelous performance. I watched last night and you were the true "Queen of the Night." I am so proud of you. You deserve the award. You deserve the honor. The audience stood for your performance the entire time. People wanted to see you, the wanted to hear you. Something else I could tell too, you knew you were going sing the hell out of "I Didn't Know My Own Strength!" You were confident, emotional, and very sexy by the way. You looked beautiful. It's hard to imagine that you have been here for over 25 years. You have given such great AMA performances in the past, but this was perhaps the best! I love you and congratulations!

Miss Whitney

I always knew you were the daughter of the "most high" and now you should know I also knew and I hope you know...
"That you are the daughter of the most high and you have been given the kingdom."
G-d speed my sister you have never been alone... May the Love of your family, friends, and fans assure you that you are every Woman... It's all in thee...
We Love You! G-d Bless You! Be Kind to Yourself, Breathe! Forgiveness is the True Road to Redemption. I wish you and all you Love. The best as it is yet to come.

Love Emunah (Faith)

Whitney - you were as beautiful and powerful as I always remember you last night. I am so proud of what you have overcome and to see you performing again. You come to Cincinnati and I am there!! My wife and I have always been huge fans and have seen you in concert a couple of times in the 90s. Look forward to seeing you again.

Whitney, you are amazing. I cry everytime I hear this song. It empoweres me cause I didnt know my own strength. I recently gave your cd to a young girl that seemed to have lost her way, you are a Prima Donna, and an inspiration to the up and coming. Keep doing your thang cause I have learned you cant brake a DIVA. I love you.
