I read about Pink and Kelly yesterday and I’m soooo excited!! I know Pink is singing Beautiful Trana so I wonder if that’s what they are doing together?

I’m also REALLY excited about Christina doing The Bodyguard tribute.

Oh god I'm not. Especially after FINALLY hearing Run To You Live today. Christina is alright. I just wish there was someone closer to Whitney paying tribute.

Heck just replay her epic performance of I Have Nothing from the AMAs

Oh, I love me some Christina too.

I wonder if Kelly & Pink will be performing their own stuff and maybe somehow mash it up with some old stuff? Idk. They definitely have singles/albums to promote.

Well shit! I didn't know Pink and Kelly were opening the show I missed most of it. Hopefully it will be on youtube.

Silly, Artist! That's why I posted this thread early! LOL It was great. I wasn't sure if they'd do a cover or sing their own stuff. Their voices are phenomenal.

So far, aside from Demi & Shawn, I don't think any other performance in the first 45 minutes are worth TV

Missed the beginning of the BG Tribute. Did they talk about it? Or did Christina just sing?

I Will Always Love You was not good but she was really good on the other 3 songs.

Loved her shout outs to Whitney.

IF anyone else is a fan of the Bodyguard soundtrack check out the 25th anniversary edition "I Wish You Love - More From the Bodyguard Soundtrack"

Whitney rarely sang Run To You live and there was never a recording released of it until now! It was at the very end of her Bodyguard world tour so as you can imagine her voice was a bit strained but the emotion she puts into it. WOW
Her lower register was just sublime!


Here is Whitney performing at the AMA's 24 years ago for the BG soundtrack.


Sorry y'all just on a Whitney kick right now LOL

I was pissed that the AMA's did not do a tribute to her after her death. Considering she has won more AMA's than any other female (That bitch Taylor Swift will break that record ) And tied with MJ as the most in one night.

It was briefly talked about at the start of the tribute.

Man. I'm bored with this show but I just need to see Pink and Kelly. LOL

If you were bored then you may be old. (I was bored too ) LOL

Kelly was incredible!

Pink put on a good visual show! But at this point I am over watching her in a harness. I would rather hear her live vocals (which are amazing) than watch her flip around.

At 73 Diana Ross is still gorgeous and she sang live at that age!
