Stevie Wonder Headlines Motown 60 Tribute Concert
Jennifer Lopez's "Motown Medley" at this year's Grammy Awards was widely criticized and left a lot of fans unsatisfied with what they felt was not a worthy tribute to the label's 60th anniversary.
Her performance was merely a set up for what took place on Tuesday night in Los Angeles for the taping of "Motown 60: A Grammy Celebration" which will air on CBS on April 21st. According to The Associated Press, The tribute was hosted by Smokey Robinson and Cedric The Entertainer and the show features some of music's biggest stars covering Motown hits including John Legend, Fantasia and more.
Stevie Wonder performed 6 songs and Ciara took the stage dressed like Rick James to perform "Give It To Me Baby" while Ne-Yo sang the Jackson 5's classic "I'll Be There". Diana Ross, who is celebrating her 75th birthday all year long, also performed including one of the classic hits from The Supremes "My Man".
Make sure you're locked in for "Motown 60: A Grammy Celebration" when it airs on CBS on April 21st so you can get over J. Lo and celebrate the label that influenced all of American music.
