When the spotlight shines brightly on the Oscars tomorrow night, we wonder if Whitney Houston will be acknowledged? 

OK! NEWS: JORDIN SPARKS PAYS TRIBUTE TO WHITNEY HOUSTON During the Grammys merely one day after she unexpectedly died, host LL Cool J started the show with a prayer to Whitney. This was certainly no surprise since the diva was known more for belting out classic hits like "How Will I Know" and "I Will Always Love You" than making her mark on the silver screen.  It sounds like tomorrow night producers aren't planning on a special tribute beyond including Whitney in the "In Memoriam" piece. According to CNN, the segment will last about four minutes and include industry names who died during the past year as well as notable names who worked in front of the camera, too. VIDEO: JENNIFER HUDSON SINGS MOVING TRIBUTE TO WHITNEY HOUSTON AT THE 2012 GRAMMYS Ironically, her upcoming movie with Jordin Sparks, Sparkle, will mark her first big movie role (and of course, her last), in over a decade. She's known for her roles in The Bodyguard, Waiting to Exhale and The Preacher's Wife. Do you think the Oscars should pay tribute to Whitney by honoring her legacy? Sound off below!
