    Rihanna?

    We like Riri, but...

    Um, Riahnna is not our top choice for this role. Why? First off, she looks nothing like Whitney Houston, she has an accent, and we don't her vocals can stand the heat. Period.

    Willow Smith

    Willow is rumored to play "Young Whitney"

    This actually might be a good look for little Willow Smith, who is the daughter of A-Listers, Will Smith and Jada Pinkett-Smith. Willow has the talent to sing, and is super-adorable. We say this is a great choice!

    Vivica A. Fox

    A great choice!

    If all is right with the world, we think Vivica would be a fantastic choice to channel Whitney! Not only does she look a bit more like her, but Vivica is a phenominal actress! We give this one an A!

    Jennifer Hudson?

    Why not?

    Jennifer has a powerful, soulful sound -- and could TOTALLY play the character! After all, she does have an Oscar. To play Whitney Houston just may be the role of her lifetime.

    Leona Lewis?

    Well, she CAN sing!

    Vocally speaking, Leona Lewis would be a terrific choice. As far as looks go, not so much, but she can be worked with.
