There, I said it.

She will NEVER be a bona fide pop star, but when you watch her performance from the 2009 Miss Universe competition last night, you have to admit that it could have been way worse!

Remember a pre-nose job Ashlee Simpson and her embarrassing SNL performance from way back when? Or Britney Spears' colossal blunder at the 2007 MTV VMAs? Heidi clearly put a lot of time and effort into her ahem, "musical presentation," and even though it looks like she stole Brit's outfit from the 2000 VMAs, her dance moves were halfway decent and her body looked fantastic, so we won't rip her apart...this time, anyway.
