There were numerous memorable performances of the evening, but probably my favorite would be “All in Love is Fair” between Stevie Wonder and youngun, Jennifer Hudson. Pared down with a simple piano and microphones, the duo delivered a goosebump-inducing rendition of the song.
Similarly, Adele and India Arie were perfectly matched as the two took to the stage with India on guitar and the British singer bopping along with her mic to the strains of “Because I am a Queen.” In fact, if you close your eyes, it’s hard to see where one leaves off and the other begins.
