Jennifer Hudson Sings Beautiful Whitney Houston Tribute at 2012 Grammy Awards
A few hours before the 2012 Grammys, Oscar-winning American Idol alum Jennifer Hudson seemed to be struggling to prepare for her tribute to Whitney Houston. She was said to be crying and had to pause several times while rehearsing for “I Will Always Love You.”
But J.Hud is a pro and she powered through the emotional performance in the final hour of the 54th Annual Grammy Awards. She gave Whitney’s iconic song all the heart and soul it needed without breaking down, a commendable feat considering she had less than 24 hours to prepare for the tribute.
