Terrence Howard -- Full of Soul or Full of S**t?

8/21/2008 3:35 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

After having to sit through Terrence Howard's first ever live musical performance last night, our spy in the crowd gave us the impression that his show was more torturous than Abu Ghraib -- but shockingly, not everyone in the TMZ newsroom agreed with the negative review.

In his shoot report from Maryland concert, the cameraman writes: "Some people should never quit their day job ... Terrence Howard could not hit the proper notes as he butchered every song. A noted fact, the liquor sales went up that night in the club as concertgoers needed some type of distraction."

Give it a listen -- is it really that bad?

Not so much his singing as his voice and the song itself that kills it.

Terry is clearly not the best singer, but he isn't awful. I have heard much, much worse. He's creative, and he wants to try his wings and see what he can do musically. Need we forget his movie, 'Hustle & Flow". I was thoroughly impressed. Maybe more practice, but not bad.

He's alright but it just gets on my nerves when actors try to do the whole singing/rapping thing. It's like they think cuz they made a name for themselves, they can do whatever they want and they're gonna be good at it.

Moshe, this sounds very personal. Do you secretly have a man crush?

I was at this concert last night. Terence Howard was wonderful, introspective, talented and refreshing. The song in this clip was my least favorite. Others were excellent as was Howard's stage presence and story telling. We were so fortunate to see him at this venue and I totally support him talking this leap, and I will definitely buy his full album.

It wasn't horrible. Maybe you all should have posted some footage of him missing notes. He's average which is about what makes it in the industry right now. I'm sure he sounds like Luther Vandross after a few crafty studio tricks.
