Last night, for the first time in recent memory, the Grammy Awards kind of felt relevant. Not for the entire three and a half hours, of course—but one would be hard-pressed to stage a more fitting memorial to the late Whitney Houston than Jennifer Hudson’s haunting, a cappella rendition of “I Will Always Love You.” As for the rest of the Grammys, here’s how we saw it…
