The GRAMMYs Turn It Out For The Aretha Franklin Tribute.

The 53rd annual Grammy Awards started off with a FAB tribute to the Queen of Soul, Aretha Franklin.

Yolanda Adams, Christina Aguilera, Jennifer Hudson, Florence Welch, and Martina McBride started off the tribute singing 'Natural Woman' before each got their own moment to sing. Christina redeemed herself after her Superbowl fiasco with a rendition of 'Ain't No Way'. Jennifer Hudson made a strong case to be casted as Aretha in her upcoming film belting out 'Respect'. And Yolanda Adams finished up the solos with 'Spirit In The Dark'.

Although Aretha wasn't able to make the Grammys, she pre-recorded a message thanking the group for the tribute. She also thanked Clive Davis, everyone whose sent get well soon cards, and everyone for their prayers.

Here's the video.
