Whitney Houston's troubled tour has derailed yet again - hundreds of fans walked out of a show in Denmark over her faltering voice. The R&B star's highly-anticipated comeback trek has been blighted by poor reviews and criticism from some fans that her vocals are too weak to carry the show.

She scrapped a string of European concerts in April after she was hospitalized with nose and throat problems, and was later booed by an audience in Birmingham, England because her singing was off-key. Now she is facing renewed concerns for her health after hordes of fans in Copenhagen left her show midway through, complaining about Houston's poor performance.

She then reportedly turned on a section of the audience when some fans began booing as she made a speech paying tribute to Michael Jackson. According to the Copenhagen Post, critics from "all of the major media outlets" in the country slammed the concert, insisting Houston's vocals were weak and tuneless.

Critic Thomas Soie Hansen, of the Berlingske Tidende newspaper, writes: "She looked and sounded like a person who doesn't have many years left to live. At the end of the show she looked like she was ready to explode."

Not a Whitney fan, but I saw the Jackson tribute concert from my wife watching it. Didn't see the booing part (probably got edited), but she clearly out sang Usher and Mia who were mumbling the lyrics at best and then Whitney came out and put some decent "pipes" effort into her singing that made theirs look even more pathetic. Usher danced great so I guess that makes up some. "At the end of the show she looked like she was ready to explode." Really, explode, is that supposed to be good writing? Sounds like writing from a moron jumping on the hate bandwagon. I expect from people exactly what they can do within the means of their age. I don't expect the woman to sound like the beginning of her career. No artist or band does, usually, with that age gap.
