Robin Thicke Gives Awesome Tribute Performance of Underrated Whitney Song on "Ellen"

Not sure why Robin Thicke’s tribute performance to Whitney Houston is only coming now, so many weeks after her death now, but maybe it took that long for Ellen DeGeneres and Thicke (one of “her favorite singers”) to sync up their schedules or some such. Whatever the cause for delay, it was worth the wait—Thicke gives a fantastic, solo performance of Whitney’s mid-’90s chart-topper “Exhale (Shoop, Shoop)” on piano, in his trademark right-on falsetto. It’s one of Whitney’s most underrated songs to begin with, and Thicke gives it a heartfelt performance, to say the least. “I’m sorry, I got a little choked up everybody,” Thicke tells the audience after his rendition. “I was actually thinking about her the whole time.” Well…not to be insensitive, Robin, but that’s kind of the point, isn’t it ?
Anyway, good show, Mr. Patton. By the way, you guys listened to the Waiting to Exhale soundtrack recently? It’s more like a best-of-’90s-R&B compilation than a straight soundtrack. Just hits after hits after hits.
