Also check out some of the wildest backstage action!
The stars were out for the 53rd Grammy Awards on Feb. 13, and unlike some of the more serious award shows, everyone looked like they were cutting loose and having a great time. Strange couples were taking candid shots together, from a feathery Cee Lo Green mugging with Justin Bieber backstage to Willow Smith and Lady Gaga snuggling in the audience. And the performances were the most exciting the Grammys have had in years.
Biebs was the MVP for the night, dashing through “Baby” and “Never Say Never” and even helping Usher out on “OMG.” Rihanna was also busy, looking beautiful as she belted out “Love the Way You Lie (Part II)” with Eminem and “What’s My Name?” with Drake. Mick Jagger showed all of the youngsters how to bust a move on “Everybody Needs Somebody To Love,” while Katy Perry showed off her wedding videos with hubby Russell Brand in her performance of “Not Like The Movies.” Lady Gaga was predictably kooky and surprisingly athletic during a rendition of her new single “Born This Way,” and a gaggle of great female singers — headed by Christina Aguilera — kicked off the show with a powerful tribute to the legendary Aretha Franklin.
What a fun night for some of the biggest names in music!
