With the 55th Annual Grammy Awards just days away, we’ve got that yearly itch to revisit the fashions of Grammys gone by. This time, however, we’re scratching it in a different way. This isn’t a hottest red carpet roundup. Instead, you’re not going to see Jennifer Lopez in that green Versace dress, or Rihanna rocking sexy bed-head hair. No, this year what caught our attention when we took a walk down Grammy memory lane was what actually stood the test of time: the women themselves.
In the gallery above, we present to you pop’s divas whose careers long outlasted the now-dated dresses they wore. Join us as we celebrate young Britney Spears, Beyonce, Christina Aguilera, Adele and Whitney Houston the night they won their first Grammys and (for reasons unknown) that time that Cher talked to Miley Cyrus. See how many of these historical pop moments you remember!
