On February 11, 2012, music lost one of its most iconic voices with the death of Whitney Houston.
Her unexpected passing at the Beverly Hilton, right ahead of the 54th Grammy Awards, sent shockwaves through the music community and created a tone of mourning on music's biggest night.

On the one-year anniversary of her death, Houston's contemporaries are still coming to terms with her death and her legacy. Here's what some in the industry expressed to CNN at Clive Davis' pre-Grammy bash on Saturday:
Some of you were caught off guard by the light show Carrie Underwood put on during her Grammys performance Sunday.
She used, of all things, her dress to make it happen.
If you went by the number of awards handed out during the Grammys telecast, the show would only be an hour long.
But to fill the other two-and-a-half hours, the awards ceremony books some of the biggest acts to put on a concert for us viewers at home. While some years have been lackluster, the 55th Grammys had an embarrassment of riches - we could barely narrow down our list of favorite performances.
The 55th annual Grammy Awards spread the wealth around at this year's ceremony, with each of the six lead nominees having a little something to take home with them.
Here's a partial list of the winners - what did you think of the 2013 awards ceremony?
Kelly Clarkson was without a doubt the life of the party at the Grammy Awards on Sunday. (Need more proof? See the above photobomb, in which she jumped into the shot with daytime talk show host Ellen DeGeneres and Portia de Rossi.)
While most stuck to their lines, Kelly Clarkson's joyful acceptance speech after winning the best pop vocal album Grammy should've won an award of its own.

For the 2013 show, so far we've spotted Rihanna and Chris Brown getting cozy in the audience, as seen above. Ri, dressed in a gorgeous red gown, is set to perform with Sting and Bruno Mars tonight.
Elsewhere in the audience, Ellen DeGeneres and Portia De Rossi ran into Katy Perry, who's flaunting what she's got in a mint green gown. Check out DeGeneres' getting an eyeful below:
