Melanie Amaro's 'I Have Nothing' X Factor Performance Video

On last night’s two-and-a-half hour episode of The X Factor, saved at the last minute singer Melanie Amaro belted out Whitney Houston’s famous song, I Have Nothing.

I’ve got a bone to pick with anyone who really tries to sing anything Whitney. I grew up with Whitney Houston songs, she’s a legend. Her range is spectacular. No one should ever really try to cover Whitney. Heck, even Whitney can’t cover her own songs anymore. I Have Nothing is a big song.

Check out Melanie’s cover:

Now if this were American Idol and Simon Cowell was back to his original Mr. Nasty self, he would have definitely called this performance “pitchy”. Now I’m not saying that she didn’t do a good job, but really no one should venture to cover Whitney.
