'Whitney, we love you'

Though Chaka Khan dropped out of the Whitney Houston tribute, Jennifer Hudson remained, performing a somber but soaring "I Will Always Love You" beneath a still frame shot of Houston in her brightest days. The performance had no fanfare and Hudson wore a simple black dress. She did a wonderful job and we have no criticism. The performance reminded us, as it should have, that no one can do it like Whitney could do it. Carina Adly MacKenzie, Zap2it Getty Images
