The Grammys are kinda special! We are up early morning to catch stars trot the red carpet in the fiercest and fugliest of outfits,watch spellbound as they perform heavy-duty acts on stage,listen with rapt attention as they ramble thank-you speeches.We love the drama,we love the grandeur,the emotions,candid moments and wardrobe malfunctions.Here is a collage of moments from the 53rd annual Grammy Awards,2011,for those who missed it on TV and those who want an encore!
The Staples Center in LA witnessed an eclectic mix of performances.While Bob Dylan and Barbra Streisand were the blasts from the past,Rihanna,Drake,Justin Bieber,Jaden Smith and Usher took the stage and shook the stage (and their booties,of course!) Jennifer Hudson,Christina Aguilera,Yolanda Adams,Martina McBride and Florence Welch performed hits of Aretha Franklin as a tribute to her.The soul singer,who had been diagnosed with an undisclosed illness was resting at home in Detroit.All in all,it was one heck of a good night!
There was still a day left for V-Day.Yet our stars couldnt help but pucker up and crush the mush,right on the red carpet itself! Apart from PDA,the other things that stood out most on the red carpet was much shimmer and shine and Rihannas sheer outfit.Fierce!
