Too bad for Whitney Houston that Denmark did let her in the country: According to the Copenhagen Post, a couple hundred fans walked out of a concert Friday when Houston's voice didn't deliver as promised, and at least one reviewer gave her zero stars for her effort.

Reviewers from Denmark's major media outlets all "blasted" the show, according to the Post, which noted that fans also booed while Houston spoke about the late Michael Jackson.

"She looked and sounded like a person who doesn’t have many years left to live," the zero-stars ...
... critic for the Berlingske Tidende newspaper said in his review (which we're pretty sure we've linked to here, but hey, we don't speak Danish -- Google Translate is our friend). "At the end of the show she looked like she was ready to explode."

One thing we do know for sure: The paper's "Whitney Flopper i Forum" photo gallery is jam-packed with less-than-flattering pics of the diva onstage.

"Flopper i Forum" -- really, who needs that translated?
