limited to) Val Kilmer, Sandra Bullock, Michelle Pfeiffer, Ralph
Fiennes, Helen Mirren, Steve Martin, Martin Short, Jeff Goldblum, Danny
Glover, and Patrick Stewart. (Seriously, how great would it be to have a
dinner party with that group?)

Michelle Dockery pretends she's Whitney Houston when she sings karaoke.
The 'Downton Abbey' actress, who plays Lady Mary in the ITV drama, says
she can't stop herself from grabbing the microphone and having a
sing-a-long when she's had a drink of alcohol.
She said: ''It's starts with something like 'Back To Black' ... Then I
will have a drink - because everyone has a drink when they are doing
''Then it'll be 'Total Eclipse Of The Heart', and by the end of the
night I'll be desperately trying to do Whitney Houston, which never goes
down very well for anyone.''

WINNING HOPES: Tessanne Chin
JAMAICAN CONTESTANT Tessanne Chin sang her heart out in the bid to become The Voice US champ.
After 12 weeks on air and months of intense preparation, The Voice US has finally reached its end.
The final three contenders gave their last performances on Monday
(December 16). Each artist performed three songs: the song that got them
through the blind audition, a duet with their coach and one solo.
During the duet, Chin and coach, Adam Levine’s emotional rendition of
The Beatles' Let It Be, with a reggae twist, delighted fans on Twitter.
"Tessanne, you and Adam won 'The Voice' with that beautiful duet.
Hands down! You're such a beautiful spirit. I loved it, you got my
vote," one fan declared in a tweet.
"Adam and Tessanne's duet was the best of all three. Tessanne is the most talented," tweeted another.
Even former Britain’s Got Talent judge, Piers Morgan joined in, tweeting in his best Jamaican Patois: "Beat dem bad Tessanne."
Following performances, Levine said: "I know that in my mind and in my heart, you are the winner of this show."
Chin’s final performance of the late Whitney Houston's I Have Nothing
was, according to some critics, the best performance of the entire
season. Dressed in a fiery red dress, Chin lived up to the hype and made
the iconic song seem simply effortless.
"Of course, I can't sing like Whitney Houston, but I consider this as a tribute to her," Chin said before hitting the stage.
Jamaican reggae artist Shaggy, who encouraged Chin to audition for the competition, told The Gleaner: "Sentiments are high where Whitney is concerned, and on top of that, it is sacred waters to touch a Whitney song,"
Levine was blown away by Chin's extraordinary talent.
"I have no thoughts right now, just emotions. I keep being thrown off
kilter by how you do this. That song was almost impossible to
replicate, and each time we have to ask, 'Where is the ceiling for
Tessanne?' You continuously blow me away," he told the 28-year-old
singer on air.
Chin and the two other finalist will find out who has one the singing competition tonight.

Well, from one sacred bit of music to another -- Whitney. How are you feeling about the performance?First of all, both of us were hesitant about that because, like [Adam] said, it's a risk. You're playing with something there that don't need to be played with, you know what I mean? Like, she is undisputed and she is the voice. So, we went through so many songs and we kept coming back to this one ... and the reason is because it's such an amazing song. It has the drama ... it has everything. The soft bits, the hard bits, so we kept going around in circles and he goes, 'Listen, the only way we're gonna resolve this is if we go to rehearsal and rehearse it. If we rehearse it and it's not right, then we'll stay here until God knows what hour in the morning and get it.' And we did and it just felt right. I wasn't going to go up there and sing it like Whitney, I was going to go up there sing it was Tessanne, but as a tribute.

According to Mariah, Whitney was reaching out to her in her final years, but MC never knew about it until it was too late. She said that if she had known, she'd have been right there. Mariah also talked about why people thought they didn't like each other. She said that when she came out, her label wanted her to work with all of Whitney's producers, but she didn't want that. Because of that reason, there was natural tension between them, but they never disliked each other. Mariah said she never had any bad times with Whitney and always looked forward to hanging out with her because they had great and funny times.

And its true about her label in the beginning. Narada speaks about it in his book that i think that he was playing some work for Mariah that whitney i think was doing but mariah obviously had her own feelings.

It kinda saddens me that Whitney reached out to Mariah and it never got through. But she eventually knew about it and I don't think Mariah would have ignored her. Would it be possible that someone from her team ignored the message purposely for whatever reason? Idk. Mariah knows now so who stopped the message at the time? She could have known then as she does now if it wasn't for someone. Idk. I know I'm doing the most but it could have been a cry for help from Whitney. But maybe Whitney was simply reaching out to say congrats on the babies or to send a gift or something. We know how nice Whitney was to those and would congratulate her peers and send flowers, etc.
