Christina Aguilera belts a Whitney Houston tribute at American Music Awards

American Music Awards: Christina Aguilera Pays Tribute to Whitney Houston With Stirring Medley

Introduced by Viola Davis and performing in front of an audience that included Houston's sister-in-law and niece, Aguilera - understatedly attired in a long black satin gown, slicked hair, and minimal makeup - began her performance simply and stunningly, with the a cappella intro of "I Will Always Love You".

"Tonight, we pay tribute to Whitney and the enduring music from The Bodyguard with a performance by another artist with a mesmerizing voice with a medley from that film".

The song (which must surely be top the list of most-butchered at karaoke bars globally) was always in safe hands with the titanic-voiced Aguilera, although the internet is questioning whether her old arch nemesis P!nk thought so.

Ahead of the performance, Aguilera wrote on Instagram, "I am excited, honored and humbled to perform a tribute to one of my idols".

Assisted by a choir, Aguilera ended her tribute with "I'm Every Woman" receiving a standing ovation. A lifelong fan, she was inspired by Houston from an early age, winning her first talent show at age 8 with a cover of "I Wanna Dance With Somebody".

Christina called Whitney the "greatest vocalist" following her performance.

Most noticeable was Pink, who seemed to be grimacing when Aguilera couldn't hit the high notes. I feel eternally fortunate to have personally met her on and off the stage.
