The 68 year old music legend Tina Turner was simply stunning alongside the 26 year old Beyonce. No generation gap was evident. Enjoy this wonderful musical performance, song and dance. We thought “Proud Mary” was especially stirring.
At age 68, Tina Turner kept those fabled legs largely covered by a silver pantsuit. But she proved she could still shake ‘em.
The singer was given a generous three-song spotlight on Sunday’s Grammy Awards, introduced by current hitmaker Beyonce, who joined her for “Proud Mary.”
Turner sang two songs central to her 1980s comeback, “What’s Love Got to Do With It” and “Better Be Good to Me.” She resembled James Brown on stage in his later years — several steps slower, but capable of moves that suggest, if not replicate, a formerly energetic stage routine.
The high heels and skintight, low-cut outfit also necessitated some careful steps.
Beyonce, 26, preceded Turner with a tribute that recalled heroes from Mahalia Jackson to Whitney Houston.
The divas were introduced by third, Cher, who poked fun at being a relic in a youthful business: “As many of you know, I first started singing when Lincoln was president, and I know a star when I see one.”
