Add Chris Cornell to the list of artists who have paid homage to the late pop diva Whitney Houston.
Following many touching tributes, including ones from Jennifer Hudson at the Grammys and Amber Riley in Tuesday's episode of Glee, the Soundgarden front man performed an acoustic version of Houston's Bodyguard ballad "I Will Always Love You" at a fundraiser for President Barack Obama in San Francisco on Thursday.

The soundtrack for the last week in TV — and virtually every other medium — was provided by the late and lavishly lamented Whitney Houston. Her sudden, untimely death on the eve of the Grammys helped boost that annual spectacular to its highest ratings since the peak of the Thriller furor (a statistic reminding us of the equally resounding loss of Michael Jackson in 2009). LL Cool J, the Grammys' engaging host, opened the show with a prayer — when's the last time that happened? — as the proceedings took on the feel of a celebration and memorial, when they weren't busy crowning Adele the new Queen of Pop. (And how much fun was she on 60 Minutes?)

Jennifer Hudson will pay tribute to the late Whitney Houston at Sunday's Grammy Awards, producers for the telecast announced late Saturday.
"We are all pretty devastated. It hit us pretty hard," Grammy Awards executive producer Ken Ehrlich said in an interview that was fed to CBS affiliates Saturday. "A lot of us who worked on the show worked with her a number of times, so it's a very sad day for us and...
As American Idol kicks off its 11th season with auditions Wednesday and Thursday at 8/7c on Fox, can it continue to reign over its rival singing competitions on TV (and all other shows, for that matter)?
Although Simon Cowell's The X Factor crowns its winner in the fall, NBC's The Voice will be nipping at Idol's heels when it premieres its second season on Feb. 5 after the Super Bowl. Charismatic banter among the coaches and those cool, swiveling chairs may bring in some viewers, but the Idol crew isn't sweating it, judging from a...
We love musical divas. Love 'em. Can't get enough of them. They sing it but more importantly, they feel it. And for the most part, we felt the VH1 Divas Celebrate Soul special just as deeply.

DINO-MIGHT? The biggest cliffhanger regarding the two-hour finale of Fox's time-tripping family sci-fi drama Terra Nova (8/7c) isn't so much what happens on the show, which is fairly standard action-adventure mayhem, but whether it will return for a second season next year. (That decision should be ...
