Music’s leading ladies amped up the style at the 52nd Annual Grammy Awards. The glamorous Grammy gals worked the red carpet, dripping in Neil Lane and Lorraine Schwartz Diamonds. Katy Perry, Keri Hilson and Beyonce were definite trendsetters on the red carpet.
2010 Grammys was all about the knockout performances. From Lady Gaga’s kickass performance – complete with fire, 6-inch heels, and piano playing – with Sir Elton John to Beyonce’s cover of Alanis Morisette’s ”You Oughta Know,” to Taylor Swift’s duo with Stevie Nicks and the 3-D Michael Jackson tribute, the stage was jumping all night. While the entertainment was high, the award portion of the ceremony was strangely short, with few awards announced live.
Country Queen Taylor Swift had another amazing night, nabbing two huge Grammy awards at the show, Album of the Year and Best Country Album for her chart-topper Fearless.
The moving 3-D MJ tribute was led by Celine Dion, Usher Carrie, Underwood, Jennifer Hudson, Smokey Robinson. Michael’s children Paris and Prince Michael Jackson, dressed in MJ style suits, accepted the Lifetime Achievement award on behalf of their dad, the most emotional moment of the night.
Beyonce was awarded two awards live at the ceremony, Song of the Year for “Single Ladies (Put a Ring On It)” and Best Pop Vocal Performance for “Halo.” She was also previously awarded Best Traditional R&B Vocal Performance for her rendintion of “At Last” and Best Female R&B Vocal Performance for “Single Ladies.”
Her energetic performance and unexpected cover of Alanis Morissette’s “You Oughta Know” was one of the most memorable moments of the evening.
Kings of Leon won big, nabbing the Grammy for Record of the Year for Use Somebody.Related posts:
