Following her spine-tingling Whitney Houston tribute at last weekend’s Grammy Awards, Jennifer Hudson performed ‘Ain’t No Mountain High Enough’ with Ne-Yo at the 2012 NAACP Image Awards on Friday.

She also joined Ne-Yo to present the Vanguard Award to ‘Star Wars’ director George Lucas wearing a Maria Lucia Hohan gown.

The beautiful baby-blue silk gown dress features a draped bust and a twisted chiffon detail on the waistline.

Normally I would find a necklace of this size bothersome with this neckline, but I love it on this occasion.

A half-up, half-down hairstyle and a beautiful pink lip colour completed her look.

Jenna Dewan wore a similar gown to the Golden Globe Awards.
