Beyonce, Tina and 'Mary' @ The Grammys

Beyonce, Tina and 'Mary' @ The Grammys
(Beyonce & Tina Turner perform 'Proud Mary' ostage at the 50th Annual GRAMMY Awards.)

We think Beyonce and Tina Turner did a phenomenal job of making Mary proud.

Did you miss the show-stopper?



Beyonce's tribute to the jazz, blues and soul singers who came before her was also a nice tip of the hat to decades of female singers, who, too often go unheralded.

The Grammy's fusion-of-the-past-and-present theme initially just looked like a crafty marketing idea, but blossomed into a sensationally memorable event.

I've had the pleasure of seeing Tina Turner live 6 times in all my years and last nights show was no exception -- it was a real treat.

Did anybody hear what Aretha Franklin said?

I can't believe Aretha would part her lips to say something so stupid about Beyonce's tribute to the newspapers. She must be jealous that Tina Turner doesn't need a forklift to get her into the building. I'm sorry but I hate uncalled for bitchyness between women. It's just ridiculous.
