Fantasia did an epic tribute to Tina Turner for the Grammys’ In Memoriam

The In Memoriam segment at the Grammys last night was epic! It started with Stevie Wonder doing a duet with Tony Bennett and let into Annie Lennox’s Sinead O’Connor tribute, John Batiste doing “Ain’t No Sunshine” and “Lean on Me” and finally Fantasia’s amazing Tina Turner performance. It was a whole roller coaster of emotions and it was so entertaining.

Fantasia wore Cong Tri on the red carpet. This looks complicated in photos but she was killing it in the footage I saw. I like her lip necklace it’s very rock and roll.

Chloe Bailey was an early standout on the carpet in bronze metallic Gaurav Gupta Couture. She looks so vampy.

Halle Bailey was so pretty in rhinestone dotted Gucci. She had a baby a few months ago, we don’t know exactly when.

    I didn’t watch the show (I haven’t watched the Grammys in years) but I if anyone could do a Tina tribute it’s Fantasia. I usually hate their choices for these tributes but this was perfect.

  2. Christina says:

    She was soooo gooood. I was pleasantly surprised by them centering Fantasia in a performance. She is such a talent.

    Fantasia was AMAZING! I don’t love the lip necklace thing, but that dress is also amazing. (And her hair! and makeup!) Halle Bailey is so gorgeous.

    Bless her heart. No really, she was lovely, but I grew up watching Tina Turner on TV–specifially, the Ike & Tina Turner Revue–and neither Fantasia nor the backup dancers can match Tina & the Ikettes in motion. Kudos for the fringe dresses, tho’, those were always a big part of the show.

      To be fair, I’m not sure anyone really can capture Tina’s energy and presence. It’s part of wht made her unique. I saw the Tina musical in London and the actress portraying Tina did an excellent job of it, I must admit.

    i thought she was fantastic in the clips I’ve been seeing today! She has such a strong voice.

    The Hollywood Reporter shared a clip of this and called the song “Rolling on a River.” LOLOLOL. Sigh.
