The 53rd Annual Grammy Awards aren’t just about who wins what or what everyone’s wearing — or incubating inside of — it’s about the performances. Christina Aguilera, Florence Welch, and several other talented ladies kicked off the night with a diva-tastic tribute to Aretha Franklin, and no, no one rearranged the Queen of Soul’s lyrics… although they were mumbled beyond comprehension.
