Jennifer Hudson wasn't the darling at Clive Davis event

When Jennifer Hudson performed at the MusiCares gala honoring Neil Diamond, here's what was said of her performance in the Los Angeles Times: Jennifer Hudson, who looked slim and somber in a gold lame jacket and black pants, earned whoops from the mostly sedate crowd as she turned Diamond's churchiest song, "Holly Holy," into a real soul declaration.

Saturday night Hudson's performance of "Spotlight" at a party honoring Music Exec Clive Davis was overshadowed by another comeback story: Whitney Houston.

"Were Whitney Houston not last night's climactic scene, everyone would have walked away from the party talking about Jennifer Hudson, and word from inside rehearsal at Staples this morning is that she's gonna bring this Grammy telecast to its knee," says the Entertainment Weekly report.
