Whitney Houston made her stage comeback at a pre-Grammys party on Saturday. The 45-year-old singer looked in good health as she performed in a figure-hugging animal print dress at the 2009 Grammy Salute to Industry Icons show, in honor of record industry boss Clive Davis.
Her return to the stage has been hailed a triumph, with Whitney - who has publicly battled addition to crack-cocaine and endured a bitter break-up from singer Bobby Brown - told the crowd "I got it! I got it!" before launching into her hits "I'm Every Woman" and "I Will Always Love You."
