The Pussycat Dolls’ version of “Feeling Good” received mixed reviews from critics. Nick Butler of Sputnikmusic criticised all four of the covers featured on the album. He singled out “Feeling Good”, writing that the song’s inclusion on the album serves as “a pretty pointless vocal workout for Nicole. ” He added that “None of them stand up to other covers of the same tracks, let alone the originals. ” John Murphy from musicOMH gave a negative review writing, “All the emotion and melodrama of the original is ripped out of the heart of the song and we’re left with a pointless, faux-jazz version. They may as well have strutted over to [Nina] Simone’s grave and performed a stiletto clad dance upon it. ” Sal Cinquemani of Slant Magazine commented that the “rendition of ‘Feelin’ Good’ [. . . ] is misguided at best. ” However, in contrast, Spence D. of IGN wrote that “Feeling Good” “comes too late in the game to really save the album from spiraling into a melange of innocuous pop-cum-R&B studio crafted fluff. ” Spence D. praised the song for returning to the “retro vibe with wondrous results. ” On the Billboard Jazz Songs chart, the song peaked at number 23, becoming The Pussycat Dolls’ only song to appear on that chart.
