The 51st Annual Grammy Awards
Lil Wayne and M.I.A.
This year’s Grammy Awards show was nothing short of drama.
Highlights included Jennifer Hudson’s tearful performance, and “The Rap Pack” aka T.I., Jay-Z, Kanye West, Lil Wayne and a very pregnant M.I.A. performing “Swagga Like Us”.
M.I.A. was due to give birth yesterday and still performed, hopping around the stage and all!

Of course, Chris Brown and Rihanna were two important acts that we unfortunately had to miss due to their own drama.
Lil Wayne took the cake with four Grammys, and walked on stage donning what looked like an engagement ring!
He paid tribute to his hometown of New Orleans and Hurricane Katrina victims.

Other winners included Coldplay, Jennifer Hudson, Ne-Yo, Alicia Keys, and John Mayer.
Here are some random pics from the night from the red carpet, the show, to the after parties.
