Hudson hit the stage alone, dressed in a simple black dress and performed Houston’s ballad, “I Will Always Love You,” nearly breaking down into tears during the performance, which occurred a little over 24 hours after Houston’s death.
In 2008, Houston presented Hudson with her first Grammy, so it was only natural that she would become emotional. Hudson has often said that meeting Houston that night, “almost overshadowed getting the Grammy.”

That was beautiful! I’m sure Whitney would have been honored by Jennifer’s performance.
