Jay-Z and Beyoncé Ruled Roc Nation's Pre-Grammy Brunch

Jay-Z and Beyoncé Ruled Roc Nation's Pre-Grammy Brunch

Though Adele's win for album of the year at last year's Grammys wasn't a complete surprise, it marked another loss for Beyonce in the show's major category.

Jay-Z said he only returned to the awards show in 2004, when Beyonce, to whom he is now married, was nominated for her breakout solo album. "My first time coming back, six years later, [was] for the insane in Love album with the handsome Miss Beyoncé". It's our duty to make sure that not only are we making the greatest art that we upholding, and supporting the things that's super real.

Rita Ora and Jay-Z have apparently kissed and made up after their feud. We can pretend that we don't care, but we do, because we see the most incredible artists stand on that stage and aspire to do that. "That is the idea for all of us to get involved and to push this thing further no matter what happens at the Grammys, it's going to be what it is".

The music industry's premier awards gala - which has returned to NY after 15 years in Los Angeles - is shaping up to be a big night for hip-hop, which for the first time makes up a majority of nominations in the top categories.

Playing the piano in a mostly acoustic set, Keys ran through a medley of hooks from the rapper's biggest hits, from "Hard Knock Life (Ghetto Anthem)" to "I Just Wanna Love U (Give It 2 Me)" and "Encore".

"Before anything else I was a true fan of your music Jay, and still am".

The black-tie event closed with a rousing tribute to Aretha Franklin by Jennifer Hudson, though the Queen of Soul didn't attend.

But Sunday's Grammys are nearly guaranteeing this year is different. The night featured a performance from Barry Manilow and new artist Victory Boyd who earned a standing ovation.

"Thanks for standing by me", the icon said. Robert Kraft, the owner of the New England Patriots, received a Bronx cheer when Davis introduced him to the audience. In 2016, Franklin told People that she had given her stamp of approval to one particular actress.

"Tonight, there are no winners, there are no losers", said Davis.

"From section 8 and welfare to the Grammys - I can't wait", yelled Logic.
