Whitney Houston may have gone but she will certainly not be forgotten as she is se to be name ‘Global Icon’ at the MTV Europe Music Awards.

There is no doubts at all that Whitney deserves such a huge award due to the huge success she gained whilst she was alive.

Whitney devasted the music industry and more in February 2012 when she passed away. The posthumous award will be awarded to Whitney in Frankfurt, Germany tonight (11th November).

The Europe Music Awards are set to see a massive celebrity turn out as One Direction, Rita Ora, Alicia Keys and The Killers.

Whitney Houston will become the third person to officially be named the ‘Global Icon’. Acts to have been named before her are Bon Jovi and Queen.

Bruce Gilmer who is the executive producer of the 2012 EMAs, said: “When we choose the Global Icons, we try to look at an artist that had a substantial career spanning a long period, at least a decade and we chose Whitney Houston for all the obvious reasons.”
