Last night Bobbi Kristina attended the Billboard Music Awards 2012 to accept the Millennium Award on behalf of her mother Whitney Houston. It was a rare public appearance for Bobbi Kris as she attended the BBMA’s in Vegas, but it was all for good reason. (Even her rumored boyfriend Nick Gordon was there to show his support and to plant a kiss on Bobbi Kris’ cheek as he brought her up to the stage.)
In an emotional tribute to Whitney, Whoopi Goldberg began the tribute saying, “What all performers want and need and should get is love and many of us here loved Whitney, and even if you’re one of those who didn’t show the love to Whitney, now is your chance, because tonight, that’s what we’re doing: We’re going to be giving Whitney the greatest love of all.”
After John Legend and Houston’s co-star in Sparkle Jordin Sparks performed some of Whit’s hits, Whit’s sister-in-law Pat Houston and Bobbi Kris took to the stage to accept the award for Whitney.
According to Radaronline.com, Pat said, “This is truly an honor. We thank you, Billboard; we thank you, Whoopi, Jordin; we love you, John. But tonight, the one person that should be accepting this award is the one person that Whitney loved most.”
Bobbi Kris then took the mic to say that she “just really want to say thank you to everyone who supported us through it all. Not just when it was good, but when it was bad too. Thank you so much for showing that much love, ’cause she deserved it. There will never be another one, ever. I thank you so much.”
