Jennifer Hudson took on the big number for the 2012 Grammys tribute to Whitney, while “Idol” Season 11 finalist Jessica Sanchez performed it during Whitney Houston week on the show this year.

“Idol” third-place finisher Syesha Mercado performed the song during Season 7, while earlier in Season 11, Ashley Robles auditioned with “I Will Always Love You” in San Diego. Which lady do you think did it best?

All versions are embedded below except for Jordin Sparks, whose video we’ll post just as soon as we have it. But for now, vote in our poll! (Is it total blasphemy that we actually think Sanchez has done the song best out of this group?)
