Robin Thicke delivered an encore performance of his cover of Whitney Houston’s “Exhale (Shoop Shoop)” (the lead single from the Waiting To Exhale soundtrack) on The Ellen Show this morning. The R&B crooner took to his piano while performing a beautifully stripped down version of Whitney’s hit song, as photos of the fallen star throughout her illustrious career appeared on screens across the stage. Watch below.

As much as we love Houston’s arrangement of “I Will Always Love You”, it’s nice to hear another one of her wonderful songs be covered by an artist who was clearly a fan of her work.

Robin — who will soon be seen on the ABC singing reality competition Duets — also performed his own tunes on the program in the form of a web exclusive — listen to the smooth singer perform his Love After War single “Pretty Lil’ Heart” while playing the 88 keys:
