The Grammy Awards celebrated 50 years tonight and put on an amazing show. The Grammy's have sucked in recent years, but producers made up for it big time this year. The live show from the Staples Center in Los Angeles featured an amazing mix of today's top artists with legendary musicians of years past.
The performances were mind-blowing. Alicia Keys opened the show with a high-tech performance with Frank Sinatra. Tina Turner and Beyonce sang "Proud Mary" together and Kanye West performed a very moving tribute to his mother. West also took home a Grammy for best rap album. They tried to cut him off with music when he was accepting, but when West started paying tribute to his mother he said it would be in "poor taste" to keep playing the music. Go Kanye!
