It’s Whitney Houston’s Grammy — Adele is best solo pop performer
It's Whitney Houston, Adele, Jay-Z and Kayne West's Grammy in Los Angeles, so far.
Who would have thought of it?
The 54th Grammys kicked off with the Boss, Bruce Springsteen, walking onto stage with a performance of We take care of our own from his upcoming new album, Wrecking Ball. And then there was two-time Grammy winner, LL Cool, who walked onto the stage at the J. Staples Center, Los Angeles — and we knew it was a Whitney Houston night.
On music's biggest night, LL Cool says a short prayer for Whitney Houston, who he calls ‘a mother, a daughter’ and takes the audience back in time to a performance by Whitney Houston — I will always love you — from a previous Grammy.
We will always love you, says LL Cool.
Bruno Mars also performs an pays a tribute to Houston.
Bonnie Raitt and Alicia Keys present the first Grammy of the evening, that of the Best Pop Solo performance, even as they pay tribute to Etta James — who passed away earlier this year — by performing A Sunday Kind Of Love.
And the Best Pop Solo performance goes to Someone like you by Adele.
