Jordin Sparks Vs. Jennifer Hudson and Jessica Sanchez: Which Idol’s Tribute to Whitney Houston Was Better?
May 21, 2012 07:19 AM by Shayla Perry
“I Will Always Love You” may have been originally recorded by country star Dolly Parton, but the late Whitney Houston made it her own when she covered the song for the soundtrack to The Bodyguard. Now, as the entertainment world continues to mourn the loss of one of the greatest voices of all time, the song has been performed by not one, but three of FOX‘s American Idol contestants, most recently, Jordin Sparks during last night’s Billboard Awards. Whose version of the Whitney hit was better: Jordin’s, Jennifer Hudson‘s, or 2012 finalist Jessica Sanchez?
Okay, so for those of you who missed last night’s Billboard Awards, you’re kind of at a loss because it’s still early and there aren’t many great clips of Jordin Sparks’ performance yet (sorry Jordin!). If a better one comes along, we’ll add it.
Also, if it helps your decision at all, keep these things in mind….
Jordin Sparks performed in front of Whitney Houston’s family, including daughter Bobbi Kristina, and Jennifer had to do her rendition practically right after the singer was found dead in her hotel room… Just a few things to mull over.
