Whitney Wows World Music Awards

WHITNEY HOUSTON stunned a sell-out WORLD MUSIC AWARDS audience at Las Vegas, Nevada's VENETIAN hotel last night (15SEP04) with her first TV performance since battling her drug demons.

The soul diva was a last-minute addition to the evening's performances when she agreed to perform two songs for record industry mogul and mentor CLIVE DAVIS, who was honoured with an Outstanding Contribution prize.

Appearing in a gold gown, Houston looked healthy and happy and proved she's still got one of the best voices in the world as she belted out I BELIEVE and top-selling classic I WILL ALWAYS LOVE YOU.

Otherwise, it was USHER and OUTKAST's night - the R+B stars claimed three awards apiece.

Usher won for World's Best Male Artist, Best R+B Artist and Best Pop Male Artist, while Outkast were honoured with awards for World's Best Group, Best Pop Group and Best Pop/Hip-Hop Artist.

NORAH JONES picked up a brace of honours, taking home awards as World's Best Female Artist and Best Pop Female Artist.
