QUEEN OF THE NIGHT ~ WHITNEY HOUSTON
"Queen of the Night" is a song co-written and performed by American pop/R&B singer Whitney Houston. It was the fifth and final single released from the multiplatinum The Bodyguard: Original Soundtrack Album."Queen of the Night" is an uptempo rock-pop-dance number, with Houston expressing how she "rules the club scene," proclaiming herself "queen of the night." It was not released as a single in America, but it received such substantial radio play that it rose to number 36 on the Hot 100 Airplay. However, because of Billboard magazine rules at the time (which have since been modified), a song with no commercial single available could not chart on the main Billboard Hot 100. The song reached number 1 on the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play, becoming Houston's fifth number 1 dance single. It was released in several other countries, peaking at number 14 in the UK. This song was covered during the Believe Again Tour performed by Delta Goodrem at various locations throughout Australia in 2009. The 2009 X Factor contestants also performed this song on Sunday 18 October 2009 as a group performance. 2009 X Factor contestant Stacey Solomon who came third, performed this song on The X Factor Live Tour 2010.
