To start off the 53rd annual Grammy Awards Christina Aguilera, Jennifer Hudson, Florence Welch, Yolanda Adams, and  Martina Mcbride join together in a collaboration to honor Aretha Franklin in a powerful performance. Great opening act!

The nominees are:
 Glee: Don’t Stop Believin’

Train: Hey, Soul Sister
And the winner is……Train with Hey, Soul Sister. They thanked many including Justin Beiber for not being a Duo or Group =)

Lady Gaga is finally ready to come out of her egg and perform her new song for the first time Born this way. The performance was pretty typical but a bit unusual for her with backup dancers and a synchronised dance, when all off a sudden her backup dancers got naked? It’s cool they are embracing their bodies, they were born this way!

Miranda Lambert with the third performance of the night singing The House That Built Me. A simple performance but very touching.

Lenny Kravitz got up on stage to introduce Muse performing Uprising. They got the audience pumped up with backup dancers on stage running around with torches. Plus, who doesn’t like to rock out?

 Ryan Secrest introduces three new artists’ Bruno Mars, B.O.B. and Jenelle Monae to come together on stage performing some of their hits within the past year and with a new twist.
