Ariana Grande Perfectly Covers Whitney Houston's "I Have Nothing"

When Ariana Grande isn't watching the world end with an old flame, collaborating with Cashmere Cat or cuddling up to new boo Big Sean, she's on the road, performing her hits on her massive Honeymoon tour. At a recent date in Los Angeles, however, attendees got a special treat.

Grande's voice is remarkable, always landing her comparisons to Mariah Carey and her ilk. You can now add Whitney Houston to that list—the "Problem" princess completely demolished a cover of the late icon's hit "I Have Nothing" with some help from songwriting legend David Foster (Christina AguileraJennifer LopezMadonna, Houston herself, etc.)

She introduces the song by throwing a few compliments in Foster and Houston's direction. She mentions she's nervous (who wouldn't be, attempting a total classic from one of the greatest singers of all time!) and then, well, totally kills it. Check it out for yourself!
