WHITNEY HOUSTON TO BE POSTHUMOUSLY HONORED WITH THE MILLENNIUM AWARD AT “THE 2012 BILLBOARD MUSIC AWARDS”

Jordin Sparks and John Legend to Perform Moving Tribute, With Special Appearance by Bobbi Kristina and Pat Houston


The late Whitney Houston will be honored with the 2012 Billboard Millennium Award. A moving tribute dedicated to Houston will be performed by Jordin Sparks and John Legend as they take the stage to commemorate Houston’s legacy. Houston’s daughter, Bobbi Kristina, and sister-in-law, Pat Houston, will make a special appearance to accept the award in her honor. The award is to be presented at “The 2012 Billboard Music Awards,” hosted by Julie Bowen and Ty Burrell, which airs live from the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas on SUNDAY, MAY 20 (8:00–11:00 p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.

Whitney Houston, undoubtedly one of the biggest female pop stars of all time, set precedent with her accomplishments as a hitmaker that are nothing short of extraordinary. To scratch the surface, Houston became the first artist ever to have seven consecutive singles hit No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100, which is still the record to this day. Four years before the practice became the norm upon the advent of Nielsen SoundScan electronic point-of-sale data, Houston scored the first No. 1 debut on the Billboard 200 for a female performer. She is the only woman that tallied reigns of more than ten weeks with multiple albums and while no other woman has more than one such set, Houston had three: The Bodyguard (20 weeks), Whitney Houston (14 weeks), and Whitney (11 weeks). Her 46 total weeks at the Billboard 200 summit are the most among women, and when Houston’s career-defining remake of Dolly Parton’s “I Will Always Love You” wrapped its 14-week run atop the Billboard Hot 100 in 1993, the song stood as the longest-leading title since the chart’s 1958 inception and became the biggest single in pop music history.
