    Whitney making the list for the HOF is perplexing. She was not a songwriter and the type of music she is known for can only loosely be categorized as rock and roll. If Whitney is eligible then...

    "I nearly fell off the stage that night, trying to escape a kiss from Diana Ross."

    LOL. Miss Carroll would have relished this part of his eulogy.

    I suppose Miss Carroll is rightfully remembered as an actress but my lasting impression of her is as a live performer.

    I like that she said nice things. I wish she had been gracious enough to acknowledge Diahann's unique contributions without conflating it with her own (legitimate) contributions as a Supreme.

    I loved this Lady. Loved to look at her, love to listen to her sing (and speak), and loved that she was in the world showing us how to be.

    Fantasia's recording career has mystified me. Each CD has one or more "bangerz" (as the kids say). "Truth Is", "When I See U", "Bittersweet" and "Lose To Win" are expertly executed tracks that will...

    Yeah, Whitney has more than a few. She was an extraordinary talent but truthfully there was only room to improve many of her treacly studio recordings.

    I found the studio version of "Why Does It Hurt So Bad" unlistenable. Then she was on MTV emoting, swooping and sweating, and completely transformed this into a gospelized,...

    OK. I thought she was a bigger touring act in the 70s but I missed her 80s "huge arena" period. By the time I started to see her regularly -- starting in late 80s -- she was playing concert halls and...

    I think all those figures are off.

    I would be very surprised if Ross had a $250mil net worth. She doesn't write songs and hasn't sold platinum since 1980.

    That made me cringe. I am not sure why Hudson invoked Flo during that speech but it made the connection between the movie and The Supremes seem real and intentional. A disservice to all involved.

    Yes, Mary worked best when the song was slow and/or sultry. Scherrie was much better suited for high-pitched, uptempo songs. Mary's lead muted the energy of this performance.
