With a sombre overtone, this year's GRAMMY awards were a classy mix of stellar performances and touching tributes. The recent death of music legend Whitney Houston colored the evening from LL Cool J's opening prayer to Jennifer Hudson's inspiring delivery of Houston's legendary "I Will Always Love You."
Despite the heaviness, it was a great night with unforgettable performances and, of course, hard-earned awards.
