Following a show at the LG Arena in Birmingham, after which Whitney Houston was roundly criticised for not being as good as she used to be, and for failing miserably to hit the high notes, an offer of help has come in from an unlikely source.
A friend of Scottish diva, Susan Boyle has told us that the Blackburn songbird would have been devastated to hear of any criticism directed at the legendary Whitney Houston.
And that Susan Boyle would probably offer to appear alongside the cracked diva to help her along with her greatest hits. The friend said that it was sad that Whitney Houston had made a complete arse of 'I Will Always Love You' in Birmingham, but that people shouldn't really have been all that surprised because that's what ten years of smoking crack can do to the purest voice.
But she added that with SuBo's support, there is no reason why Whitney shouldn't be able to turn things around.
"Susan has always loved Whitney," the friend said. "She thinks her songs are great, especially that one she lifted from Chaka Khan but didn't do nearly as well - 'I'm Every Woman.' I'm sure Susan could bring some much needed joie de vivre to Whitney's show. I'd love to see her sing 'I Wanna Dance With Somebody' and 'I Will Always Love You' to Piers Morgan on stage. With Piers standing in the spotlight. Holding a lovely bunch of red roses and wiping a tear from his eye."
