The 54th annual Grammy Awards are currently underway live from Los Angeles Staples Center and we will bring you the performances you want to see. Whitney Houston, who died on Saturday, will get a special musical tribute at the show, which will air on CBS from 8 to 11:30 p.m. (ET/). Also, check out our live Twitter updates @hellobeautiful, and let us know what you think of the show!
Bruno Mars “Runaway Baby”
During the song he addressed the crowd by saying: “Tonight we are celebrating music. Tonight we are celebrating Whitney Houston. So get off your rich ass and lets get moving.”
Alicia Keys & Bonnie Raitt’s Tribute to Etta James “A Sunday Kind Of Love.”
A little to short for us…Wish Etta had more of a tribute
Chris Brown Medley “Turn The Music Up” & “Beautiful People”
Chris Brown performs from atop a pyramid of projection screen boxes that features a digital skyscape. A little lackluster for Breezy, but after taking flight at last year’s VMA’s he gets a pass. Would have rather seen a longer tribute to Etta or Whitney.
Rihanna / Coldplay
One of RiRi’s better performances of “We Found Love”, choreography was tight! Could’ve done without the Coldplay collabo!
Adele “Rolling In The Deep”
For her comeback performance after throat surgery, Adele performed her Grammy-winning song ‘Rolling in the Deep,’ that started out with an acappella version and reminded us that sometimes a set of pipes is all you need to bring a crowd to its feet.
Jennifer Hudson’s tribute to Whitney Houston
JHud performed Whitney’s cover of Dolly Parton’s song “I Will Always Love You” and became visibly emotional during the performance.
