Star Studded Tribute Honors Late Music Icons At 2024 Grammys

A star-studded tribute honored the late leading lights of the music industry at the 2024 GRAMMYs. In a heartfelt and exciting segment, Tina Turner was remembered with a spirited cover of ‘Proud Mary’ featuring Jennifer Hudson and Fantasia Barrino, while Stevie Wonder did a tender posthumous duet with Tony Bennett.

The In Memoriam segment began with Wonder honoring the ‘I Left My Heart in San Francisco’ crooner, who passed away in July. With Wonder on piano and an ethereal, archival video of Bennett singing, the two created a tearjerker posthumous duet of ‘For Once in My Life’ before transitioning into ‘The Best is Yet to Come.’

Next, a video memorialized Prince before a visibly emotional Sinéad O'Connor appeared on stage with Wendy and Lisa to pay tribute with a tender cover of the late Irish alt pioneer’s classic single ‘Nothing Compares 2 U.’

Elsewhere during the In Memoriam package, Bruce Springsteen received recognition for his unmistakable impact on popular music throughout the 20th century. Then, Bill Withers was honored by John Legend with a tribute that included a performance of ‘Ain’t No Sunshine’ and ‘Lean on Me’ by Jennifer Hudson. Ann Nesby, Miley Cyrus, and others joined later to perform ‘Optimistic.’

Last but certainly not least, Oprah Winfrey ushered in a tribute to Tina Turner, saying ‘Tina Turner was always a towering figure. She is our forever goddess of rock and roll who inspired millions, a moving symbol of grace and grit, soul and power…And as those big wheels of time keep on turnin’, Tina’s voice continues to speak to all of us.’ Following her remarks, Fantasia Barrino took the stage for a transcendent, celebratory performance of ‘Proud Mary.’

Taylor Swift also made a special announcement during the GRAMMYs. After winning the Best Pop Vocal Album for ‘Midnights,’ she revealed that her 11th studio album, titled ‘The Tortured Poets Department,’ will be released on April 19.

In another standout moment, U2 performed their energetic song ‘Atomic City’ live from the Sphere in Las Vegas. This marked the first live broadcast from the state-of-the-art structure, where Bono and his band are currently performing their residency U2:UV Achtung Baby Live at Sphere.

Olivia Rodrigo delivered a powerful performance of her chart-topping hit ‘vampire’ at the GRAMMYs. The young pop sensation captivated the audience with her emotional rendition, which included stunning visuals and a dramatic display of fake blood.

Miley Cyrus took the stage to perform her hit song ‘Flowers,’ celebrating her first GRAMMY win. The pop superstar delivered a triumphant performance, showcasing her captivating stage presence and self-love anthem.
