Whitney Houston’s “Wardrobe Malfunction” Overshadows The Other Problems With Her “X Factor” Performance

Much more egregious than the snapped strap on Whitney Houston’s dress during her performance on this weekend’s X Factor, which inexplicably lit up the Internet today: The realization that her upcoming tour is going to rely a lot on her backup singers and dancers to carry along the proceedings. Which is kind of sad, actually, because there’s a lot to like about her comeback effort I Look To You. I do like the callback to “How Will I Know?” into this arrangement of the the Alicia Keys-penned song’, but I can’t help but think that if girlfriend went on the British talent search as a contestant with that performance, she would not have been put through by Simon Cowell to any next round at all.
