CHECK IT: Whitney Houston's LAST SONG Recorded-- "Celebrate" Duet With Jordin Sparks

Singer/actress Jordin Sparks handed over a Monday morning surprise to Ryan Seacrest today.  The radio host debuted Whitney Houston's last know recorded song--a duet with her Sparkle co-star. 

 

Check out Whitney & Jordin's upbeat feel-good track "Celebrate" inside, and find out just how nervous Jordin was last night at the Billboard Music Awards to perform the Whitney Houston tribute....

"Celebrate" was produced by R. Kelly and will appear on the upcoming Sparkle film's soundtrack.  Whitney's voice sounds like her old self, and Jordin holds her own as well.  Check it out above. (If you can't listen, click HERE). Sparkle hits theaters August 17th.

 

Meanwhile, Jordin, who changed up her wardrobe for her tribute performance into this fab leather corset and silk maxi blue number by Michelle Mason, 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."

Check out video of the YBF chick alongside her beau, Jason Derulo, talking about her tribute:

Jordan was AMAZING... She

Jordan was AMAZING... She sang that song almost like Whitney... no one can do it like her.. but that was the closest I've heard to date... However, I'm not feeling this Celebrate song.. it's okay.. too cheesy for mainstream though

Both ladies did an awesome

Both ladies did an awesome job. They both have two unique and different voices. Whitney loved and praised both ladies equally. Jordin rendition was good but she dont have the power that Whitney possessed to deliver the gutt vocals but she did good overall.... Jennifer did an amazing job twice. She sung it flawless and had Whitney on her feet at the BET Honors screaming. The second time, was too soon for a tribute and the way she sung it was what the director wanted not what she wanted to do... Do not compare these ladies because they are very different

Jordin's tribute to Whitney last night was very nicely done, at least she didnt take the forced over the top route that others who have paid homage to her in the past have taken.

Jordin is so OVERRATED. I was

Jordin is so OVERRATED. I was left FLAT by her "tribute" to Whitney. Jennifer Hudson did a FAR superior job. Once was before Whitney when she as alive and the other was at the Grammy awards right after she passed. Jennifer delivered far more emotion and vocal ability. And Jordin.....Jason Derulo is so SUSPECT. This is the SECOND suspect male she has "dated" which really has me wondering about her sexuality. The first suspect male she "dated" was Steph Jones who was also passed around in Atlanta. This girl must like her "men" light if you know what I mean. SAD because she is a pretty girl who deserves better.

You need a ear piece or somthing because JORDIN SPARKs nailed that song, and she sounded amazing.. Jennifer Hudson was horrid singing that song, to the point everyone in the room watching with me was shocked at how terrible she sounded. close your mouth, open your ears!

@Mrs Leaks 11:59 am Jordin

@Mrs Leaks 11:59 am Jordin did not even SING on KEY and she had TONS of time to PRACTICE. Jennifer Nailed that song TWICE. The first time for at the BET HONORS and Whitney was there to hear her and it was PERFECT! The second time she did it was AFTER Whitney DIED and Jennifer had no time to practice and she was emotional because she knew Whitney. I suggest you look up BOTH performances. Jennifer KILLED IT. Jordin was off key and her voice was WEAK. Jennifer sand it with emotion and feeling the same way Whitney sang the song. Jordin left me FLAT.

@ StarLa 1:57 pm Amber from GLEE PRE-RECORDED and then lip synched. So you FAIL there. Jennifer sang the song TWICE. Once for Whitney and the other one was the DAY AFTER it happened. And BOTH times she did a better Job than Jordin Sparks. NEXT!

I LOVE IT. It sounds like my old "WHITNEY". Props to Jordan, not only was she beautiful last night, her rendition of "I'll Always Love You" was fantastic. Although I was not impress with the tribute, none the less my "WHITNEY" was acknowledged. May she rest in peace and I look forward to seeing "Sparkle".
