Ariana Grande's Stunning Cover Of Whitney Houston’s "I Have Nothing"

Inglewood, California concert-goers received a one-of-a-kind treat when Ariana Grande surprised her Honeymoon Tour audience with an absolutely epic performance of the Whitney Houston classic, “I Have Nothing,” reports MTV News.

The singer, fresh off her remarkable Celine Dion impression on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon, was adorably flustered as she introduced surprise special guest, “I Have Nothing” lyricist David Foster, to the stage, calling him “one of the most incredible songwriters of all time” and the iconic song, which originally appeared in Houston’s 1992 film, The Bodyguard, one of her “favorite songs of all time.” 

“It was my go-to song to sing at a gay bar, at a karaoke bar, anywhere,” Grande explained, calling the chance to perform it alongside its scribe as “such a surreal experience” before proceeding to nail every single high note while perched elegantly cross-legged atop the piano. 

Surreal? Sure, we get that. But also amazing? Definitely.
