Christina Aguilera To Perform A Whitney Houston Tribute At AMAs
It’s not the new single we’ve all been craving, but I’ll take it! Christina Aguilera has been confirmed as a performer at the 2017 American Music Awards on November 19. She has been chosen to pay tribute to Whitney Houston on the 25th anniversary of her mega-selling The Bodyguard soundtrack. I guess that means she will belt out “I Will Always Love You” or perhaps a medley of songs. (Imagine Xtina singing “Queen Of The Night”!) The Lotus diva might dust off “Run To You,” which she previously performed at a BET tribute.
“I am excited, honored and humbled to perform a tribute to one of my idols, Whitney Houston for the 25th Anniversary of ‘The Bodyguard’ at the @AMAs! 11/19 on ABC,” Christina wrote on Instagram. This ties in nicely with the released of I Wish You Love: More From The Bodyguard. The album, which drops November 17, combines previously unreleased live recordings, alternate versions of hit songs and an unused remix. The must-have for hardcore fans (or anyone feeling nostalgic for the ’90s) will be available on CD and limited edition purple vinyl.
