For the first time since 2020, music executive Clive Davis’ iconic Pre-Grammy Gala returned on Saturday (Feb. 4) with a star-studded guest list and notable performances.
Jennifer Hudson, Lil Wayne, Latto and Cardi B were among some of the talented performers.
Late December saw the release of “I Wanna Dance With Somebody,” the biopic of the late Whitney Houston. With the film still fresh in our heads, Hudson performed a tribute in honor of the famed singer, tackling the 1986 song “Greatest Love of All.”
Wayne took to the stage to perform a few of his hits, including “John,” and was joined by Swizz Beatz to perform their collab “Uproar.”
Lizzo came to showcase her vocal range, performing “Break Up Twice.” She’s nominated in five Grammy Award categories this year: Album, Record, Song, Pop Solo Performance and Pop Vocal Album.
Latto brought “Big Energy” to the stage, performing the Grammy-nominated single, along with another single, “Sunshine.”
The 24-year-old rapper is nominated for Best New Artist and Melodic Rap Performance. She said to Billboard, “I’m just gonna wing it – cry – scream,” if she wins any of the two awards Sunday night (Feb. 5).
