Jennifer Hudson Set To Perform “I Will Always Love You” At Grammys + Beyonce Calls Whitney The “Ultimate Legend”

It’s been revealed what Jennifer Hudson’s tribute to Whitney Houston will be tonight at the Grammys. Get the deets on her performance inside and find out what Beyonce had to say about Whitney.

We just learned that Jennifer Hudson will perform two minutes of "I Will Always Love You" during the "In Memoriam" portion of the show. And it’s said to be "simple and sweet."  The show’s finale has been changed into something very special.


Beyonce also posted her own Whitney tribute on her website,

"The loss of Whitney Houston is painful. I remember meeting Whitney for the first time when I was 15. She was the ultimate legend. The ultimate woman. Not only was she confident, poised, stunningly beautiful and intelligent, but she was sincere and kind. She took the time to make everyone feel like they were very important to her. I, like every singer, always wanted to be just like her. Her voice was perfect. Strong but soothing. Soulful and classic. Her vibrato, her cadence, her control. So many of my life’s memories are attached to a Whitney Houston song. She is our queen and she opened doors and provided a blueprint for all of us.

God bless her."


And earlier this evening, a few notable folks have already walked away with Grammys–mainly Mr. West.  Congrats!
