Two days ago, Jennifer Hudson had no idea she’d be singing this song at the Grammys. I don’t know how much time she had to rehearse. I don’t know how familiar she was with the song — she knew it, of course; everybody knows Whitney Houston’s greatest ballad. There aren’t many artists, though, who are up to the task of performing a Whitney Houston song on a moment’s notice, but Hudson nailed it.
(Side note: Remember when she was eliminated from American Idol? Ha! That was a mistake.)
