Glee - Glee Stars Ready Whitney Houston Tribute

'Glee' will air its Whitney Houston tribute episode tonight (24.04.12).

The Fox series will pay homage to the singer - who died in Beverly Hills in February from accidental drowning caused by cocaine use and heart failure - in the 'Dance With Somebody' episode which will feature Brittany (Heather Morris) and Santana (Naya Rivera) singing the title song.

The official synopsis reads: ''The glee club pays homage to a true icon when they cover Whitney Houston's greatest hits. Meanwhile, Emma and Will are one step closer to their dream wedding in the all-new 'Dance with Somebody' episode of 'GLEE' airing Tuesday, April 24 (8:00-9:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX. This is not the first time the programme has featured songs from the legendary singer.

Just before Whitney's death, Amber Riley - who plays Mercedes Jones - performed a haunting version of 'I Will Always Love You' which the 48-year-old singer famously sang in 'The Bodyguard' movie.
