What I don't understand is

What I don't understand is why Alicia Keys wasn't advised to NOT wear that color. Someone on the "inside" had to know it was one of the color choices the First Lady may have worn. I know it's not a crime, but it's kind of like upstaging the bride by wearing white to a wedding (if the bride wore white of course).

I heard a clip on a morning show here in Atl and I thought it was too much screaming in those 30 seconds. I couldn't imagine listening to the entire song

First with the positive: Our

First with the positive: Our president and first lady had me grinning ear to ear. Beautiful, simply beautiful. Secondly, I have to agree with those that said Jennifer and Alicia were two screaming messes. Ugh!!! I, too, had to mute the TV because JH butchered that song, and it was just the wrong song for the moment. A silky smooth male's voice would've been appropriate. I also had to mute Alicia cause she was hollering her head off.

I would have loved to hear Al

I would have loved to hear Al Green himself sing this song or just another nale for that matter if he was not available. Personally I don't feel she did the song any justice. I know Tyrese, Joe, R. Kelly etc.... some other male could have done it is all I'm saying
BeautyLuvsMii's picture

Yes to Tyrese and definitely

Yes to Tyrese and definitely Joe! Jennifer Hudson did not sing this song well. It needed a smooth soulful male voice. Not the lady in the back of the church with the tambourine that always has to sing over everybody. Ugh! She was doing the most to that song.

Here at work so I can't see the video...#flatlined at the lady in that back of the church with the tambourine comment. Wondering why if Lets Stay Together is one of the Presidents favorite songs how hard would have been to get the originator of it to sing it?!?!

FLOTUS and POTUS look

FLOTUS and POTUS look dazzling, as always. LOVE them and FLOTUS was wearing that Jason Wu! Now as for JHud, I love this girl too but why Lord WHY does she always get it wrong in the fashion department. The fit of her dress was great but the length was WRONG WRONG WRONG!!!! This should have been a floor-length dress. Point, blank, and the period.

Jennifer was so bad, I had to mute the tv and to add insult to injury, they let her sing it more than once. Al Green is either laughing his ass off at what a joke that performance was or he's somewhere in a corner shivering from pissedoffness. DISASTROUS!!!!
