Grammys to Pay Tribute to Whitney Houston

Grammys to Pay Tribute to Whitney Houston, As the music community (and Internet as a whole) reacts to the untimely death of Whitney Houston, the Recording Academy is scrambling to arrange a tribute for Sunday night's Grammy Awards.

Executive producers have confirmed that Jennifer Hudson has been contacted about performing a tribute, but acknowledged that things are still too raw for a full-blown tribute.

Meanwhile, at Clive Davis's pre-Grammy Gala, Grammy nominees and attendees are reacting to Houston's death. Grammy Live is streaming red carpet and live interviews from the event, alongside live Twitter commentary from viewers. Saturday night's event is particularly bittersweet because Houston was Clive Davis's biggest star and she was supposed to appear at the pre-Grammy Gala.

Fans are gathering outside the Beverly Hilton Hotel (the location of the Gala and where Houston died) to express their condolences. Social media has already played a strong role in the 54th Grammy Awards and that will continue into Sunday. Mashable will be at the Grammy Awards, tweeting and live blogging live from the show.
