Singer Alicia Keys was this year’s Grammy host and boy did she nail it. She was fun, fierce and energetic! The award show started with Camila Cabello who sang her hit song “Havana”  and brought out Ricky Martin as her guest. As the show went on, Alicia Keys was then joined by superwomen J.Lo, Jada Pinkett Smith, Michelle Obama and Lady Gaga who shared their stories on success and women empowerment.

Diana Ross celebrated her 75th  birthday early with the audience with a song. Other performances included Travis Scott, a tribute to Motown done by Jennifer Lopez and Ne-Yo. Sisters, Chloe and Halle also performed. Yolanda Adams, Fantasia and Andra Day paid homage to the late Aretha Franklin singing “A Natural Woman”.

The award ceremony ended with Dua Lipa winning Best New Artist which was well deserved for the English singer and songwriter. Last night was a night for  celebrating women and love. It was definitely a great show that I enjoyed.
