At Sunday’s (Feb. 12) 2012 Grammy Awards, there was one artist on everybody’s mind — the late Whitney Houston. As stars spoke of Whitney’s legacy on the red carpet, Jennifer Hudson honored the singer with a stunning performance on the Grammys stage.

The tribute was moving, tasteful and a testament to how Houston inspired nothing but the best in an entire generation of performers. Hudson nailed a cover of Whitney’s signature song, ‘I Will Always Love You,’ and was absolutely stunning in a black gown and voluminous curls reminiscent of Houston’s ’80s style.

The ‘American Idol’ took on the tribute solo, after Chaka Khan withdrew from the last-minute performance, stating she was too grief-stricken to step in front of the star-studded crowd. Hudson was overcome with emotion herself, as she fought back tears towards the end of her performance.
