Meanwhile, Jordin, who changed up her wardrobe for her tribute performance into this fab leather bust and flowy blue number, expressed on the red carpet just how much pressure she felt to sing Whitney's "I Will Always Love You":
"I put myself completely, 100 percent onstage every time I perform," Sparks said of giving "everything" for her Houston tribute. "It's just very special. I feel very honored to be able to honor Whitney in this way and to sing one of her songs. I've actually never performed this song before ever. It's one of the songs I've always been like, 'Leave that alone,' so it's nerve-racking for me," she admitted. "It's a lot of pressure I'm putting on myself, because I want to do it amazingly, but at the same time, whatever happens, I just want to be able to speak through the music."
