53rd Annual Grammy Awards 2011: Tribute Performances

The 53rd Annual Grammy Awards celebration is known for one thing... Performances!
It was no doubt that this years Grammy celebration was jam-packed with performances from artists from every genre across the board.
While I found the Grammys overall boring and lack luster, I don't think that is a testament to the coordinators, I think that it is a testament to the music being put out... but that is another convo for another time.

Here's one of my favorite performances for the night.

Aretha Franklin Tribute: Yolanda Adams, Lady Antebellum, Christina Aguilera, Jennifer Hudson, and Florence

The Aretha Franklin tribute was amazing!
The performance included renditions from“Natural Woman”, “Ain’t No Way”, “Until You Come Back to Me”, “Think” to “Respect”, “Spirit in the Dark” and “Sisters Are Doin’ It for Themselves.”
Although Christina was doing a bit much for me, Lady Antebellum did her thing. Florence was a bit shaky at first but came through at the end. Jhud looked HOT and sounded equally as epic. She started my tears and Yolanda kept them coming. Yolanda is a beast upon beasts. I love that all the women could sing on that stage together and not try to out do one another.

Mick Jagger's tribute to Solomon Burke:
How old is Mr. Jagger because his swagger is on levels I don't even know how to describe!
Mick Jagger really got into the tribute performance to Solomon Burke, who passed away last year. 
He performed Burke's “Everybody Needs Somebody to Love” and killed it! He even had help from guitarist Raphael Saadig.
This performance was great simply because Mick gave me his soul on that stage. Loved it!
Coincidently, Jagger has never performed at the Grammys.
For his first time, I think he did a SMASHING job.
