    Glad Alicia will be here to duet with Stevie Wonder. They are both amazing and I’m sure it will be a quality performance, even though the BBMA’s are getting a little out of hand with their honors (Whitney will be awarded too, won’t she?). However, out of the set list, I’m yet to get a must-see performance. Maybe they’re keeping some names secret?

    Get it girl! I LOVE THAT OUTFIT! 🙂

    I didn’t know they were honoring Stevland Morris along with the dedication to Whitney Houston’s amazing contribution to the world of music! This will be an AWESOME SHOW indeed!

    And yes @TGJ/SAM, Usher and Chris Brown will be the night’s stage-blazers! 🙂 I don’t think I have ever seen them perform on the same show. I’m excited. I’m not the biggest Usher fan but I have enjoyed a few of his songs & performances throughout the years.

    ***After seeing The Voice performance, I am cringing at the thought of seeing Babble again and the media generated PRAISE OF HIS GREATNESS ala the “NEXT MICHAEL JACKSON”! And yes I know he made “the machine” that backs him millions in cash! SO WHAT…..

    Oh yes this is going to be a great show now! Whatever they sing, I know it will be an amazing performance and I can’t think of anyone better to present Stevie Wonder with an award. Much love and respect to Ms. Alicia. She is a one of a kind super lady. <3
