LeAnn took the stage and belted out “I Will Always Love You.” At one point, LeAnn had to stop singing because she got so emotional.

Whitney Houston was the first cd I ever bought. She had a…gift. Hopefully, she’s singing with angels now.” LeAnn tweeted when she heard the news.

Watch LeAnn‘s tribute to Whitney below…

FYI: LeAnn is wearing Rebecca Minkoff‘s ‘Wes Lace Moto’ Jacket.

    Ohhh wow! I just can’t–

    Whyyyyy??? Why why why? She’s horrible. In every. way. possible. Her voice sucks, her acting sucks, her style sucks, her looks suck, and she is a narcissistic homewrecking witch. Whyyyy keep posting about her? She had one good song 20 yrs ago, and THAT’S IT! I get so mad when JJ post about her NO TALENT & insecure arse.

    But the video gave me a good laugh yho. Found it hilarious that only 3 out of the 10 people she performed for clapped for her at 1:30 =D

  • Amanda

    Oh my! Her bony legs look like they’re about to snap right off her. She’s just so gross!

  • TexasLovin

    She is very unattractive. Dog face.

  • Jordan

    I wonder who’s more desperate and insecure in life. This chick or Maniston…? It’s a toss up as of now.

  • Sal

    Yup, as expected she will somehow make this about her. Does she not kinow that people can see what a phoney she is? stfu Rimes and stop using someone else’s death to bring attention to your “grief”. What happened to her face, btw? She’s never been a looker but she’s getting more and more hideous. Did she merge with some reptilian alien?

  • piaf

    Whitney Houston has more talent in pinky toe than leAnn Rimes has in her whole pathetic bony body.

    RIP Whitney Houston x

  • doggie breath

    i love dogs!!!! even a dog’s butt looks cuter than that face!!!!! her face is just downright ugly.

  • OMD

    h03 sit down!

  • Lele

    I like how she got “emotional” at the most dramatic part of the song where Whitney just absolutely belts it out and skipped it.

  • What a JOKE

    Um, why is this squinty-eyed hootchie paying tribute to Whitney? I don’t think Whitney would appreciate a homewrecking hoe representing her. LeAnn’s fugly, boney ass needs to go sit down somewhere. Fckin loser.

  • Skys

    I come on this site every day and I am reminded how horrible we are as humans to each other. My goodness the lady was her idol, she died and she paid tribute to her, give your hate a rest people…..the word will be a better place.

  • Gimme a Break

    You don’t have to come on the site to be reminded how “horrible” we are as human beings, you simply need to see LeAnn’s name for that honor. She’s the unremorseful homewrecking adulteress. Get with the program, lady!

  • thighmegatampon

    her career’s been so overshadowed by her marriage to eddie cibrian that i almost forgot she was a singer… despite all the negative comments above- i still think she’s a good singer.

  • thighmegatampon

    also gotta add- it’s scary how her legs can make miranda kerr’s legs look big. (and i’m definitely not saying miranda’s legs are)

  • kami

    omg, what happened to her? she is soooooo skinny. her legs look like sticks. and in the face, she looks like she’s aged 20 yrs overnight? is she not eating? scary.

  • A

    People should pay attention to her tribute to Whitney rather than her personal life and body

  • J

    Talk about fuuuuuuuuggglllyyyyyyy…dang girl your getting uglier the older you get….GROSS

    She isn’t “paying tribute” to the great Whitney Houston, she is just using this tragedy to get even more PR for herself. Just how low can anyone go?

  • dobbi

    I won’t look at this, it will ruin the song for me if I hear her nasty voice sing it.

  • Michelle

    Whitney Houston will be dearly missed, still in stock though.

  • James

    What’s her problem? Is she anorexic? Is she a drug addict? LeAnn Rimes needs help.

  • skskj

    1l@A: then she shouldnt give people a reason to comment on her personal life.

  • maury

    @16 Okay I am paying attention to the “tribute” and she yodeled her way through it and wrecked it. Horrible.

  • vekey

Unlike other sites,NO scammers or fake profiles here, and you can meet many rich or mature women as well, including celebs, famous stars.BEST OF LUCK!

  • http://comcast Dee

    I cannot believe people can be sooo mean. Why–does it make you people feel better ???? I don’t understand !!!! Did she do something personally to you ????

  • publi$ity

    Making fun of yourself all the time shows how stupid you are lol

  • Mad

    Just because someone does inappropriate things, or bad things doesn’t mean she doesn’t have feelings, and doesn’t mean she can’t get emotional about a song, and the death of someone she idolized. Sure she doesn’t seem like the best person in the world, but she did a great job with the song. You can’t deny that. Settle down people. It’s not like you know the person and she’s in your life every day wrecking it. So why all the hate? If you hate her so much, just don’t bother coming onto stories about her. Bitterness is an ugly thing. Sure she may not be a nice person, who knows if she is or isn’t, plus she may love the attention from the media. Like I said, she’s not in your life screwing it up, so give the woman a break.

  • Kris

    It was nice she took time to pay tribute to Whitney Houston during her show. Her rendition wasn’t bad either…in my opinion.

  • Communist

    I hate on her. She shouldn’t be there.

  • Zuba

    You know what? Jennifer’s tribute at the Grammy’s was touching, Leann’s strikes me as just trying to get attention for herself. She didn’t know Whitney, never met her. Even people who knew Whitney well in the music industry are not getting as hysterical as Leann. And since WHEN has Whitney been her idol? I’ve never seen her mention her in any interview before. All of a sudden Whitney is her idol. Yeah right!

  • J. Ryan

    You people can say whatever you want about her looks and her voices but seriously you guys are trolls… literally. Plus, she won a grammy for best new artist and best country vocal performance at the age of 14. You just keep hating… she can go shine her trophies.

  • puri

    This woman looks unnaturally thin and scary, i have nothing against her, she just needs some help i’d say.

  • Communist

    @Zuba: Nowadays, every singer says Whitney is their idol to get attention

  • Hellooooooo

    Her voice sucks ? Please stop it , she has a beautiful pure voice and her vibratos were better than Jennifer Hudson , not as powerful and lighter but better in it’s own way ! You might not like her but she can sing ! Better than half of the people than performed at the Grammys anyway , not mentioning names because die hard fans will jumps on my throat but still she can sing !

  • Hellooooooo

    @Gimme a Break: People make mistakes cut the crap , you don’t say somebody can’t sing while they can , because they cheated ! That’s pure BS! And there are way worst thing that cheating!

  • Jane

    @Mad: She sure as h*** didn’t have any FEELINGS when she f***ed another woman’s husband. She only cares about HER feelingsONLY. SHE is nothing but a self-rghtous b**** who claims that the whole world revolves around her. Leave to WEWE to make Whitney’s death all bout her. Pulease.

    When WEWE dies, do you think the world is going to mourn her like Whitney H*** to the NO!

    Jennifer Hudsom was hand picked to sing at the Grammys. If WEWE is such a pure talent why didn’t they ask her? I’ll tell you why. She’d be booed off the stage !

    Nuff said.

  • UnhealthySkinny

    Look at her chest…
    She quite honestly looks like how people do when they’ve been held in prison fed only rice and water for 3 years. This is considered ‘attractive’ these days? Why? She is nothing but flesh and bone, literally. This ‘trend’ is unhealthy skinny. Their is nothing to grab, hold on to. No softness at all. Is she ill? Have cancer? Most people wish to avoid looking so frail? She was once so soft and touchable. Okay, I’m not a man… but know what I mean?

  • Jenna

    Oh my, how can she even think she’ll do Whitney any justice?? Okay, so Leann’s got a nice voice – for country-pop. But that’s not what’s needed to perform “I will always love you”!! So bugger off, Leann! Jeez…

  • char

    where was she singing. sounds like in a basement somewhere. Maybe less than a 100 people there. My, how she has fallen. next stop greyhound bus station bathroom. heard the acoustics are good in there

  • Jane

    Sorry about all the misspellings earlier. The whole issue makes me sick, just utterly sick. Leann never, and I mean never mentioned that Whitney was her idol/influence. Look at Wikipedia and it CLEARLY states that Patsy Cline, Barbra Streisand, Winona Judd and Reba McIntyre are her major influences and idols. No one iota of the text ever states Whitney. Once again…WEWE makes it ALL about her. She finds anything very noteworthy and turns it around to include her just like she did when there was an attempt to kidnap Joss Stone and WEWE sais someone tried to kidnap her TWICE. Geez…when is this idiot going to stop once and for all?????

  • Robby K.

    @CJLOVE23: Regardless of what she’s done that you don’t approve of, her talent is indisputable and universally acknowledged. Which begs the question, why do you really “hate” this celebrity ?

  • Sick of Haters

    Most of the derisive gibberish written about LeAnn Rimes on these comment boards is not worth addressing. However, I believe occasionally a real fan might read these and be misinformed as to facts verses fiction.
    LeAnn can sing better than 99 per cent of singer/artists in any genre or any technically difficult singing. Moreover, as a musical prodigy she is quite modest about her abilities and remarkably grounded. In my capacity with of an air service in Nashville for a number of years I have often seen and spoke with LeAnn Rimes. She is polite to a fault, never demanding or arrogant and always cheerful. Many of her trips involved charitable activities and benefits. I can remember no other similar stars involved in as much of this activity over the last ten years

  • Jane

    @Sick of Haters: Pulease…get over yourself. There are dozens and dozens of singers out there who could knock WEWE on her bony a**:
    Barbra Streisand
    Celine Dion
    Kelly Clarkson
    Cristina Aguilera
    Rene Fleming
    Jennifer Holiday
    Jennifer Nettles
    Jennifer Hudson
    Lady Gaga
    Aretha Frankilin
    Mariah Carey
    Janet Jackson

    Annie Lennox
    Alisson Krauss

    Should I go on, love?

  • V

    I don’t understand why she breaks down for a moment then sings perfectly fine the next second….she can sing but her personality is horrible.
