I honestly think that this list is utterly boring! Ihope the show grabs some good performers, because if not, this show will be an epic fail. I wonder if they will do a proper tribute for Whintey Houston? I mean it's will just be one day before the anniversary of her death and the thing they did with Jennifer Hudson last year just didn't sit well with me.

Anywho, what do you think of the list? did any of your favorites make it?
