    look i love amber riley and i will do anything to meet her she insired me to do bigger things in ma life nd i relly dont give a fuck about j.h but amber riley will always be ma idole so what the hell i pick amber riley


    amber riley waz better


    Jennifer hudson is great and all but amber killed it. I love amber riley


    one was sung live with an emotional singer who just lost her idol less then 24hr ago and another was recorded in a studio. Not a fair question, but go on youtube and find jennifer singing it too whitney at the 2010 bet honors. Then compare


    I love jennifer Hudson. I really do but Amber killed that joint. Not saying Jennifer didnt do a good job. Amber to me at the time just did BETTER!!!!!!!!!!! And at first I didnt even like GLEE


    I think Jennifer Hudson did a beautiful job full of emotion and we could see and almost feel her pain. I have to say I love hearning Jennifer singing any song. I think a live version is harder to do than a studio version and I take nothing away from the other singer. I just like Jennifer the best. Tragically Jennifer knows first hand what Ms. Houston's family is enduring


    Which do you like autotuned or the live version of the song. Jennifer Hudson hands down did a better job with true heart and emotion.Congrats Ms.Hudson on winning two NAACP Image Awards on Friday night.Did Amber Riley win a NAACP Image Award on Friday, I think not. TeamJHud




    Many of you are clearly not familiar with Amber, yet. She sings with beauty! Live is fantastic, too. You assume it was all studio magic, It isn't. Hudson did do a beautiful job, even through grief, but I beg to difer as to her downplaying it, I heard a completely different song, I guess. I thought she made a point of showing off just a bit more than seemed appropriate.
    And I know most here are to young to remember, but this song was written & first done - and beautifully, by Dolly Parton. Miss Whitney did a nice version, but there was no raw pain, no edge. She had a beautiful voice, but it lacked depth.(of COURSE this my opinion) Amber Riley brought the original beauty of the song to life. Simply stunning. It is a pleasure to listen to Amber every time, every moment, and without the sky high diva attitude that Jennifer & Whitney brought along.
