IT'S official - Whitney Houston "will, barring any physical ailments, perform at Clive Davis' pre-Grammy party," a rep for Davis told Page Six. This will mark the first time Houston, whose golden voice was once ravaged by drug use, has performed onstage in front of a crowd in years.
The party Davis is co-hosting with NARAS at the Beverly Hilton on Feb. 7 will also feature performances by Jennifer Hudson - who hasn't sung since her mother, brother and nephew were slain in October - and Sean Combs. Davis' office is apparently getting calls from people with offers of over $20,000 to attend. But it's a no go - if you're not on the list, you're not getting in.
