Jordan Sparks, Melanie Fiona & Ledisi Didn’t Work For Andre Harrell!

December 19th, 2012

FU Andre Harrell

Singers Dubbed “Divas In Training”…

To Andre Harrell, Jordan Sparks, Melanie Fiona and Ledisi have a long way to go before even attempting to walk in Whitney Houston’s shoes.

That’s because the trio’s recent VH1 Divas Live tribute to the late Queen Of Pop prompted the music mogul to announce his great disappointment in the performance.

Here’s what the girly man Andre Harrell tweeted:

“Last night on Divas none of those ladies could sing Whitney’s songs, as a matter of fact the show could have been called divas in training.”

Is Andre Harrell being too hard on Jordan Sparks, Melanie Fiona and Ledisi? I think so. Know why? Because I think Kelly Rowland, Keri Hilson and Adam Lambert’s tribute to Donna Summer was the worst!!! Don’t believe me.. Ask Gladys Knight.

    I’m with you on this one Jacky. That Donna Summers tribute was HORRIFIC. I don’t know what happened to Kelly. It’s like she came down with a 2 pk a day habit. Her lack of breath control is shameful! and Kerli Wilson just needs to crawl back into the corner where she was placed last year. Adam disappointed me. He has the vocal chops… but CLEARLY not for other people’s songs.

    The Whitney tribute was cute. All three ladies can sing but people should not expect them to sing like Whitney. We know that’s impossible.

    Well Whitney around the time of her death wasn’t sounding like “Whitney” (due to many other factors)..so hey I don’t think I expect anyone else to either. Unfortunately in the music having strong melodic vocals isn’t “in style” nowadays. smh(3x).

    @Tawny-you mean being able to sing period isn’t in these days!!! There are good singers out there-chante moore, jennifer hudson, nikka costa, joss stone, fantasia and a FEW others but they are overlooked in favor of studio produced “singers”who make flashy videos like rihanna, beyonce, jennifer lopez and lady gaga. Style over substance is the order of the day and i for one hate it!! I grew up on chaka khan, stephanie mills, deniece williams, angela winbush, patti labelle, phyllis hyman and patti austin-REAL SONGSTRESSES!!!! So the current crop of singers out there now do nothing for me. Telling me these girls are divas is like telling me top ramen and kool aid are like lobster and champagne-i think not!!!!! Hell the last divas show was trash so no surprise this one stank up the joint.

    Yes yes yes that’s what im talking about,all the above are classic singers, only disagreement is that screaming heffa fantasia, im sorry but i cant take that shouting vocals, she cant sing period,fantasia on the SOUL TRAIN AWARDS was a true hot ghetto mess no class or dialecte female behaviour just ghetto.
    Yes i grew up on Stephanie, niecy,Miss windbush, Patrice rushen,Vesta,Jones girls, Atlantic starr, list goes on all classic artists.
    Aint no divas for now, they need to wait another 10 years before we see another one..
    Cosign all the way you no your music!!

    Honey, tell the truth and shame the damn devil! This Diva’s special was a joke of EPIC proportions. I’d rather them NOT have this show if they can’t find some real divas, with some real pipes, and real talent. These microwave popcornballs did a huge disservice to Whitney and Donna Summers. I was embarrassed for them.

    pump yo brakes! Beyonce can sing. Just ask Chante Moore… who sang back up for her quite a few times. That Letterman LIVE performance comes to mind.

    Another Beyonce stan… No one said she can’t sing but she’s a robot no feeling no soul..
    As for chante Moore now she’s got soul she could run rings round Beyonce …
    I suppose I’ll be attacked by all the Beyonce stans…

    @BOSS-beyonce hasn’t made a decent album since dangerously in love. Her last 3 were godawful and that’s being kind. Her videos now are more interesting than her actual music-case in point girls run the world. Nice video but the song is nothing at all. I’ve noticed that whenever r&b singers have a crossover hit album on their next album they jettison the thing that made their album do well in the first place-the soul. B-day, sasha firece and four are all POP albums and have no soul at all. Hell my favorite singer chaka khan did this too-after her platinum album I Feel For You she followed it up with Destiny. Destiny tried to recast her as a pop singer and it failed miserably. It is IMO her worst record. Thank God she came back to her senses with C.K. My point is when beyonce crossed over her music became soulless and robotic with no feeling and no soul. Any singer or non singer can sing that crap she does now. Put katy perry, lady gaga, rihanna or any othef pop singer’s voice on the tracks from her last 3 albums and tell me what would distinguish them from any of the other garbage out there on the radio? NOTHING!!! The singer makes the song and when it is the other way around it doesn’t work. Beyonce may be a good singer but her last 3 albums wouldn’t convince me of that. Now you may disagree but i stand by my opinion and if you do then we will have to agree to disagree but that’s ok too. So tell me what you think.

    Your talking about gay again?? i never knew Whitney was a gay icon all i know is she made good music and had a musical talent a voice!! that every female/male in the industry wanted to have.. is that gay?

    Chris you need to put this gay shit down its getting kind of obsessive…
    Just be positive about our black sisters Whitney wasn’t perfect but who is,this dosent take away from their own individual talents and achievements…

    crazychris Reply:

    yes she made good music she had sex with women on her drug binges.

    all these divas have drag queen followings at those drag shows and female impersonators.

    crazychris Reply:

    DONNA DID IT ALL DRUGS TOO BUT ON HER LABEL CASABLANCA THE LATE CEO NEIL BOGART MADE IT CLEAR HE WAS’NT GONNA GIVE YOU A RECORD DEAL UNLESS YOU WAS GONNA DO COCAINE.

    DONNA’S MUSIC WAS ABOUT PROMISCUOS SEX ORGIES ANYWAY.

    DISCO MUSIC ALWAYS ATTRACTED A GAY AUDIENCE TO THIS DAY EVEN WITH THIS TECHNO CRAP WHICH MAIN ARTISTS LIKE GAGA, KESHA, NICKI MINAJ, CHER, BEYONCE, KATY PERRY ARE ALL KNOWN LESBOS AND GAY ICONS PROMOTE THE SAME THING PROMISCOUS BISEXUAL SEX AND DRUGS.

    WHEN THESE ARTISTS QUIT PUTTING OUT GAY REFERENCES I’LL QUIT TALKING ABOUT THEM.

    @anoynous
    Lol you guys are funny yes born in the UK know my stuff musically always have proberly more so then you younguns on this blogg
    . I’m not saying Chris is wrong his entitled to his own opinion and yourself music is music isn’t it??
    I grew up with Motown Smokey , marvin, Diana ,Micheal Jackson , supremes, Leon ware, Isaac Hayes, teddy , sylvers, eddie kendricks,Luther Teena Marie, Stephanie mills..
    I like good music not this Nicki manji shit you all cray cray for her in the USA.
    My point is musically I don’t associate any of these acts negatively as I don’t no them, the music speaks for it self yes Diana Ross was fucked up, yes Luther was a spitfull diva.. But back in the day we all just Jamed to the music and enjoyed, had no time to worry who was gay and there personalities it didn’t matter, even now people still talk about teddy Micheal and whole lot more who are we to judge, and before you all start slinging mud yes this is a blogg, but as I said I’m musically biased, as long as they haven’t killed no one or crossed the line and they are hurting others… I really don’t give a fuck…
    As for today yes judy and the bipolar drunkerd dayghter Liza minilli I can see that gayness because Liza is so over the top I just have to shake my head..
    Anyway I don’t care for today’s artist are last icons died Whitney and Micheal please let’s not disrespect them they both opened so many doors regardless of all the shit that came with it nobody is perfect..

    Now that’s where I draw the line. Nobody likes a Nicki Minaj or any of these new school fools. Our music is corrupt. The industry would rather go broke to promote garbage than to promote real music that brings people together.

    Disagree, they need a marketing plan. Plenty of mature singers people haven’t heard of cuz they only do clubs or Broadway.

    BTW, I am a Ledisi fan, so Andre can take his Mr. Blackwell of song azz and sit down!

    vermithrax173 Reply:

    Thank you!!! You can’t compete when you don’t have the marketing! They are already at a disadvantage with lack of radio airplay and no video rotation support so marketing is all that is left. As for that old and played out comment i would put patti labelle up against ANY of these new girls and she will sing them under the table!!! As a matter of fact she did it a few years back when she did lady marmalade with pink, christina aguilera, mya and lil kim. She blew them all off the stage with one note!! But i do agree with his viewpoint on donna summer and whitney’s songs being better than what is out now.

    I’m a singer and I write my own songs. This was like watching them shoot music in the face. None of them stayed in tune and none of them are interesting or good looking. I think I’ll pass.

    Jordan Sparks doesn’t have the experience or chops to try to sing ANYTHING Whitney Houston sang..her performance was pitiful. Melanie can sing but that arrangement did not compliment her voice…that performance was all wrong for her. Ledisi is good and she did fairly decent but the arrangement..again.. did not make for a stellar performance.

    That entire show was crap.It’s like they put no effort into who sounds good singing what songs and the line up was out of line as well.Miley Cyrus???Really???And Adam Lambert sang in an tribute,Why???I thought the show was Divas live not Divos live.And honestly @CrazyChris is so correct,they are shoving that gay agenda down our throats.It’s like the real,normal people in this world have no voice anymore and we just have to accept anything they put in our face.They even have the children on the disney channel cross dressing now.That’s when I had to turn the tv off and have a long chat with my babies about the way of the world.
