This performance was short and perfect now that I think of it. Initially I said to myself on twitter “that was it???” but I had to realize Whitney passed away with 24 hours until the Grammys. So it was really hard for the producers to put together something great for her tribute even though the world wanted a longer tribute.
The two singers had been linked a handful of times before Houston’s passing. At her last Grammys appearance in 2009, Houston presented Hudson with the prize for Best R&B Album, and Hudson later paid tribute to Houston at a BET Honors show in 2010, which celebrated her 25 years as an entertainer.
