Jordin Sparks and John Legend Pay Tribute to Whitney Houston at Billboard Music Awards

Bobbi Kristina

There was hardly a dry eye in the house as the Billboard Music Awards paid tribute to the iconic Whitney Houston at Sunday’s show. Following an introduction from Whoopi Goldberg, John Legend performed “The Greatest Love of All” and Whitney’s Sparkle co-star Jordin Sparks wowed with her cover of “I Will Always Love You.” Whitney’s daughter Bobbi Kristina was present to accept the Millennium Award on behalf of her legendary mother.

“I just really want to say thank you to everyone who supported us through it all, not just from when it was good, but when it was bad, to just everything,” said the 19-year-old. “Thank you so much for showing that much love ’cause she deserved it. I’m just blessed to have been in such an incredible woman’s life. There will never be another one, ever.”

Watch the touching tribute below.

    I still don’t like Pat Houston. Brandy looked amazing. And as much as I love Whitney, Bobbi K needs to invest in some new weave.

    Yeezytaugheme and Sharp tongue there is a saying if you do not have anything good to say “SHUT UP” you two should do that she lost her mother less that two months ago.Do any of you know what it is like to lose a parent especially your mother.

    That was very moving and right on point. Bobbi should be my wife. She needs someone to watch over her ass.

    I am so glad that Bobbie Kristina was able to receive her mothers award. Why would there have been a second thought as to who should accept the award other than Whitney’s daughte. I pray that Bobbie will be on guard around her Aunt Pat. After all she is just an Aunt by marriage. Be careful Bobbie Kristina because Pat and Gary seem like they are really thirsty. You really don’t know what happened in that hotel room. Just be careful because you are surrounded by vultures. Stay close to God and he will stay close to you.
