Concert Goers Walk Out on Whitney Houston, Refer to Singer as "Rubbish"

by at . Comments

The Whitney Houstin Humiliation Tour goes on.

A month ago, during a concert in Australia, the former chart topper coughed and wheezed her way through a rendition of "I Will Always Love You." She left most verses to back-up singers. It was pathetic.

But it wasn't enough to cancel the tour, as Whitney's manager tried to spin the debacle into a tale of someone way past her prime going out there and giving it her all.

"If [fans] want to see a true professional artist give 100%, come along and enjoy the ride of an amazing talent, on stage, letting her heart and soul out," he told future audience members.

The folks in London didn't get the memo, however, as they hoped for an enjoyable performance from Houston over the weekend. Concert goers had the gall to expect Whitney to actually sing her own material, and many walked out of The O2 Arena when she could only muster excuses, as opposed to high notes.

"She don't want to come, my soprano friend," Houston whined, blaming the arena's air conditioning. "Sometimes the old girl sings, but not tonight. I want to do it, but she doesn't want to."

Referring to your voice, broken down after years of drug use, as an individual with its own personality? No wonder friends refer to Houston as a "hot mess."

Said one person in attendance to USA Today: The concert was "rubbish. She can't even complete a song."

Another referred to Whitney as "not a patch on what she was." We assume that's British speak for: She's an absolute trainwreck that needs serious help.

Watch the terrible performance below, but be warned: you may need to double up on ear plugs.
