After last week’s spectacle at the Super Bowl with Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake and their infamous performance, CBS was taking no chances of another spectacle during the 46th annual Grammy awards. In order to have the chance to edit out anything that could be considered offensive, the show was aired complete with a five-minute delay. Regardless, stars showed up in their red carpet finest to honor their colleagues at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, Ca this past Sunday, Feb. 8.

Solo artist Beyonce Knowles walked away with five Grammy’s includng best R&B vocal performace for “Dangerously in love.” Christina Aguilera, who walked away with a Grammy for best female pop vocal for her song “Beautiful” off her “Stripped” album, might have given producers of the show a scare with her low cut dress leaving little to the imagination. Timberlake, who, along with Jackson, was invited to attend the event if an on air apology was issued, also received a Grammy for best male pop vocal for “Cry Me A River” off of his debut solo album, “Justified.” During his acceptance speech, Timberlake apologized to the viewers for the actions that took offended,” Timberlake said. Jackson refused the invitation.
Winner of a record-tying five Grammy’s, Beyonce kicked off the show with Prince singing “Purple Rain” honoring the 20th year of the song and movie that made history.
The only hitch that came in the night was during the tribute to Luther Vandross when the microphone Celine Dion was using had a slight malfunction.
