Watch: Usher Performs At Whitney Houston ‘Grammy Salute’ Special

Published: Monday 15th Oct 2012 by David

In honor of her celebrated life and lasting legacy, CBS will present the Whitney HoustonGrammy Salute’  November 13th.

Boasting tributes and performances by Britney Spears, Jennifer Hudson, Halle Berry and LL Cool J, today saw footage from Ushers tribute to the icon surface online.

A performance,  which both showcases Usher’s skill as a vocalist and conviction as an entertainer- serving justice to Houston’s take on ‘I Believe In You & Me’, originally released by The Four Tops in 1983.

Enjoy below…

Though we’re a little disappointed he missed some of the cut’s higher notes, Usher’s tone was impeccable as far as we’re concerned.

Here’s hoping the night’s other performers performed to a similar standard.

    i like the arrangment of it for him, wish he could of killed that high note at the end of the bridge, but it is usher and at this point, i dont exspect less from him. not a huge shocker he did well. not like it was a lessor vocalist doing it like this, it’s usher doing this, which is exspected, which is very good.
    job well done Usher

    He did a really nice job!!
    I just wished that there were more/different artists that would have performed, for e.g. TLC, Chaka Khan, Jennifer Holiday, Ashford & Simpson, Beyonce Kelly & Michelle, Lionel Richie etc etc. At least some of these artists would have been a really really great tribute. Oh well there’s still the “Divas” tribute towards the end of the year!!!!!

    He did good, it’s hard for a man to sing Whitney but he pulled it off. Also, he had to sing it twice because he messed up the first line.

    FAIL . COM 🙁

    Joe, R.Kelly, The Four Tops, ron Isley ….MAXWELL (my baby) would have done a better job. Usher was flat all the way through. Whitney breathed such life into this song. Usher simply did not do it justice IMO!
