Better than J Hudson’s. There was something wrong with her mic at the Grammy’s But this girl from Glee knocked it out the ball park.

I don’t get why you call it Whitney Houston’s song because it is DOLLY PARTON’S SONG!!! Dolly wrote the song long time ago and it was successfull back then. Whitney and just sang it…btw Jennifer Hudson is nothing compare to Amber b/c Amber killed it!

Wow, I don’t think I ever realized just how good she is. She said before that this was filmed before Whitney’s death, but what a tribute. Beautiful, I also think it was better than Jennifer Hudson’s.

ANNND, Whitney Houston COVERED Dolly Parton’s song…
Don’t forget THAT is NOT Whitney’s song… It’s Dolly’s!!

Dolly Parton did it better Back in 1974, but then again she did write it..
She will be making a crap load of money off of Whitney’s death.

Amber nailed that song. WOW. The flow of her voice was just beautiful. So soothing. Gave me goosebumps. Something I was expecting from Jennifer Hudson’s performance. I don’t care what people say, Jennifer Hudson’s rendition made me cringe. It sounded horrible! She was trying too hard to sound deep, but ended up sounding like a man instead–or a women impersonating a mans voice. Just because she said she idolized Whitney as a child, doesn’t mean she was the perfect choice to sing that song for her tribute. Almost EVERYONE in the business “idolized” Whitney! She was no different.

Amazing that people would compare Jennifer Hudson’s tribute with Amber’s and find it “not as good”. Amber taped her rendition in advance whereas Jennifer was approached by Grammy producers at the last minute (on the day that Whitney died) to sing the song Sunday night. She cried all during rehearsal of the tribute and was fighting tears Sunday. Considering it was a rushed endeavor & unplanned, I think Jennifer did an absolutely stellar job. Amber’s rendition was just as superb!

Incredible. Best rendition I’ve ever heard :)

I cannot believe all of you people saying Amber did a better job than Jennifer Hudson. Not to see Amber did poorly, but it’s a studio recording. Of course it is going to sound better than a live performance, and who knows how many takes she had to do to get it right

I sort of find it to be in poor taste that Glee would do a tribute so quickly. Its awful that it’ takes a death for people to start praising those who passed away so suddenly/

Actually, from my knowledge; according to several cast members, Glee had already recorded the Whitney Houston song WEEKS before the singer passed away. I was personally shocked by the eerie coincidence myself. Very ironic.

WOW! MUCH better than at the Grammys! MUCH MUCH better. It almost seemed like Whitney was back for a moment…

OMG!! Amazing coverr!!

Goosebumps…seriously! Amazing cover…Amber always does them so perfect! Weird coincidence that this aired right after Whitney’s death.

A couple of people pointed out that the article refers to “I Will Always Love You” as Whitney Houston’s song but Dolly Parton originally wrote and originally performed it. Give it a re-read because that’s not actually what it says. They call it a “Whitney Houston classic,” which I take to mean that she just made the song more famous. Also, the article does give credit to Dolly Parton; “…a track originally written and performed by Dolly Parton.” Just to add my own opinion, I don’t think this song wouldn’t be as famous and well-known as it is now without Whitney having recorded and performed it. Also, I like Whitney’s version better.

OK, rant over.

If she can do it this well live, then they should have had her sing it at the Grammys instead of JHud!

Man glee is so so so stupid they always ruin other peoples music. She did oky not that good.

her voice is more soothing to listen to, unlike Hudson’s deep-manly voice.

One of things that made Whitney’s voice great was the tonal quality, smooth and rich NOT deep and craggy. I like this Amber version.
