The Hollywood Reporter reports that Jennifer Hudson broke down during Whitney tribute rehearsal
Not surprisingly, Hudson is said to be “having a hard time” at rehearsal for the tribute number, which will air three-quarters of the way through the broadcast, as part of a broader “In Memoriam” segment. She is singing Houston’s monster hit “I Will Always Love You.”
A Grammy crew member tells The Hollywood Reporter that Hudson was “crying and had to keep pausing” to collect herself during the Sunday afternoon rehearsal. “She was having a hard time getting through the song, especially on the second run-through.”
Chaka Khan has also been added to the tribute number with possibly more surprise guests to be announced.
The Grammy telecast kicks off at 8 pm ET.
