A whole room full of people will be turning to each other saying, what did she say?

I plan on missing this one.

I guess this is your reply back to me attacking your Favorite show.AI
Why didnt other so called Divas get the call to headline instead of Anita.And at $35o-500. I dont think you could attend anyway
Yeah Yeah Anita isnt easy to understand, what's new. But im sure Obama will

American Idol isn't my favorite TV show. It's a reality TV show I admit to watching.

I've seen ol' knuckleheaded Anita Baker in concert before. She spent more time arguing with the sound
man than she did singing. There will be lots of entertainment in D.C. beginning this weekend and into next Tuesday night. I'd rather see what else is going on rather than see Anita.

Well, It's good to see a lot of these entertainers working. Live entertainment has been sort of scarce lately

Congratulations to Anita! She's a talented lady and deserves this. Although her enunciation drives me nuts, the woman has a beautiful voice, and alot of talent.

There's going to be many balls. Dionne Warwick is in charge of two, one with legends like Chaka Khan. The other with new stars like NeYo.

This isn't the "official" ball. It's just one of many around town that night. Have they aanounced the lineup for the OFFICIAL one yet? (Form what I gather, Obama has nothing to do with this one.

Looking at the ad, this ball just seems to be one of many. From what I've read, Obama can't possibly attend them all. I believe the logistics of some were planned so that they would be in the same area, and he might be able to briefly appear at a few.
