Was The Grammys Short on Whitney Tributes?
Jennifer Hudson was given the unenviable task of not only performing a tribute to the late, great Whitney Houston, but also singing her most iconic -- and difficult song -- I Will Always Love You.
And while earlier reports said Jennifer could barely make it through rehearsals without emotionally collapsing, when the time came for her to sing, J.Hud saaaaaaang.
Although if I'm being quite honest, one song simply wasn't enough of a tribute for this singer who defined a generation. I know The Grammys had little time to throw a proper retrospective together, but did we really need to see Chris Brown or The Foo Fighters perform twice? Couldn't those additional spots have been saved for additional covers of Whitney songs?
Gaga was there and she could have slayed some The Greatest Love of All. Or Reba McEntire, I would have killed to see her tackle Saving All My Love For you. And don't even get me started on the fact that Alicia Keys, Alison Krauss, Cyndi Lauper and Diana Ross were in the building and no one thought to assemble them for a magical medley of I'm Every Woman!
Don't get it twisted, I'm sure the tributes will be in bountiful supply over the coming months, but on music's biggest night, I'm shocked they didn't save a little time to show Whitney a little more love.
