West Midland's police arrested a 46 year old woman after she got up on stage pretending to be Whitney Houston at Birmingham's LG Arena.

The as yet named woman fooled the audience for a few minutes as she walked on stage to a standing ovation. However, audience members realised something wasn't quite right after she sang the first line of 'I Will Always Love You' and got the words in the incorrect order.

Things got worse as she sang 'Where Do Broken Hearts Go' when she managed to sing in tune, but unfortunately it wasn't the right tune.

By the time she had burst into a rendition of 'I Wanna Dance With Somebody' several audience members had got up and left complaining of perforated ear drums due to the deafening noise.

As she staggered off stage at the end to the sound of silence and no encores, she was met by three members of the West Midland's constabulary who handcuffed her and bundled her into the back of a waiting police van.

She was released the following morning pending further enquiries but was told not to go to any other venues in the UK where Whitney Houston was due to perform.

The real Whitney Houston was unavailable for comment but has shocked all of her fans by announcing that she will not be performing anymore shows in the UK this year.

Her new single called 'Finger Nails Scraping down a Blackboard' is released at the end of the month.
