Jennifer Hudson's Whitney Houston Tribute at Grammys - Watch Now!

Jennifer Hudson's Whitney Houston Tribute at Grammys - Watch Now!

Jennifer Hudson looks absolutely stunning on stage at the 2012 Grammy Awards held at Staples Center on Sunday (February 12) in Los Angeles.

The 30-year-old singer performed a sweet and simple rendition of the classic song “I Will Always Love You” in a tribute to the late singer Whitney Houston.

It was announced last night shortly after Whitney‘s death that Jennifer would perform a tribute performance during the Grammys.

Jennifer‘s performance followed an In Memoriam segment that honored such talents as Amy Winehouse, Clarence Clemons, and Steve Jobs.

no, no, no, let’s not try to spin this “I lost 80 lbs I must be awesome” chick into the late, great Whitney!

had to immediately rinse out my ears on UTube with the original rendition…

Jennifer did a wonderful job, and I know how hard it was. I was asked to sing at the funeral of my pastor, and I was so emotional, I couldn’t finish the song because I started crying. I’ve always regretted that I couldn’t rise to the occasion when it counted, but I’m not a professional singer. I just sang occasionally in church. In the final months before his death, he asked me several times to sing his favorite song for his funeral, and he always said that if he didn’t jump out of the casket to give me a hug and a kiss, then we’d all know he was truly gone. Of course, I remembered that while singing, and when I realized he would never again give me a hug and a kiss, I just lost it. So since then, I’ve always admired those who are able to put aside their own grief and pain and rise to the occasion, because it’s incredibly hard. Bravo, Jennifer, bravo.

Best vocals of the night. Period.

Such a brilliant voice and classy tribute.

# 6

She sang great. Always loved her. Well done :)

Jared, please make it available, cus it won’t play

JH you should be ashamed of yourself. That would have had to have been the worst performance I have ever seen and that’s saying a lot. Ms H deserved a lot better than whatever the hell you want to call that!

She did a great job, but no one signs that song as well as Whitney. And probably no one ever will. Her voice had a lightness to it that carried that song to another level.

Ms H being Whitney Houston. Hudson you nearly killed one of the greatest songs in our generation. Hang your head in utter shame.

mediocre or less
where are the great talents of now?
Adele, beyonce Jay z- brusce springsteen- john mayer ryan adams- those people can really sing

No one said she was trying to sing like, or be Whitney. Shut up people. She asked what was done of her, gave a tribute to an idol of hers. Jeez.

@melissa: NONE of the ppl you just mentioned could have done better than Jennifer. The closest would have been Beyonce, but she would have made it all about her. You’re an ignorant twat.

Well, if anyone was going to do it, i’m glad it was Jennifer Hudson because she can actually sing unlike some others… (i’m looking at you Adele) …without you being uncomfortable her voice will break.
Jennifer makes it so you can relax because you know she has control over her voice and can go high and low and in between, basically, she has range. She’s not Whitney but then, who is? No one. So give her a break, she’s the best we have at the moment.

great tribute. she did her way and it was respectful and moving.

BEAUTIFUL TRIBUTE. WHITNEY WAS HER IDOL AND SHE LOVED JENNIFER’S VOICE…… SHE IS NOT TRYING TO BE WHITRNEY AS SHE HAS HER OWN OSCAR WINNING CAREER…. GREAT JOB!

@ozangel:

You are an idiot. Period.

that wasn’t very good. some random from xfactor or american idol can do way better FOR SURE

@longchamp:

What an ******* you are!!!! It was a tribute – Jennifer is an Oscar winning actress/singer with her own career maybe you should follow suit and get your own life.

Whatever happened to, if you don’t have something nice to say, say nothing.

She sounded nervous and kinda off-key. Way too deep-voiced for the song, and it was so slow. Dunno, it wasn’t great IMO.

Oh my! She always have that “angry” style of singing. Very different from the emotion WH gave to the song.

Whitney seemed to be quite please 2 years ago at Jennifer’s tribute to her…when she was here to witness it…so pass this link around to all the haters…http://www.ibtimes.com/articles/297417/20120212/grammy-2012-jennifer-hudson-whitney-houston-video.htm

@ozangel:

If that’s the worst performance you’ve ever seen then you not only know nothing but never have seen anything.

Another talentless, pathetic jerk on JJ trying to act like they actually know something about anything and don’t.

Whitney doesn’t need phony, nasty fans pretending to greive her by trashing a tribute by a singer she liked.
