CBS and the Grammy Awards are celebrating 60 years of Motown with a star-studded event on Easter Sunday (April 21). Motown star Smokey Robinson and stand-up comedian Cedric the Entertainer host the televised two-hour event which includes a variety of performances from Diana Ross and Stevie Wonder, to Jennifer Lopez and Ciara, among several others. JLo (who is engaged to former World Series champion, New York Yankees baseball star Alex Rodriguez) rocks her signature, plunging neckline sequin bodysuit and thigh-high boots while singing The Contours song “Do You Love Me.”
Ciara (who’s married to Super Bowl champion and Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson, who just signed the richest NFL contract in history) channels her inner Rick James when she performs his hit 1981 song “Give It To Me Baby.”
Ciara wears a stunning black bodysuit decorated with silver lightning bolts and matching knee-high black boots. And yes, she wears long braids with dozens of silver beads, to, a la Rick James.
Ciara isn’t the only artist to wear a wild costume on stage. Her friend Fantasia wears a safari inspired leopard print number that’s hard to miss. The two-hour special Motown 60: A Grammy Celebration airs Sunday, April 21 at 8 pm.
