Britney Spears appears to be all over TV these days. Most weekdays she's found judging the "X Factor.” Tomorrow, however, she's co-hosting a tribute concert to The Voice. "The Voice" being the late Whitney Houston.
Britney tweeted her involvement last night:
I am both honored and humbled to take part in the GRAMMY salute to Whitney Houston on Thursday... She'll always be 1 of my heroes!

The Femme Fatale entertainer will stand alongside actresses Halle Berry and Taraji P. Henson, and rapper and last year’s Grammy Awards host LL Cool J, to introduce interview segments, never before seen footage of Whitney, and performances from Jennifer Hudson, Usher, Celine Dion, Yolanda Adams, and CeCe Winans.
The one-hour television special is filming in LA tomorrow at the Nokia Theatre, before airing on CBS this November 13.
As we all know, in a tragic turn of events last February, a day before the Grammys, Whitney was found dead in a bathtub at the Beverly Hilton Hotel. The cause was accidental drowning due to cocaine and heart disease. She was 48.
Even in death, her voice lives on. In addition to this tribute concert, a posthumous album of the singer’s greatest hits will be released on November 13 also, the same day the special airs. Titled I Will Always Love You – The Best of Whitney Houston, its 18 song tracklisting is the first authoritative compilation spanning the entirety of the late singer’s career—from “Where Do Broken Hearts Go?” to “I Look to You” (with R. Kelly).
