"Let's Stay Together".

And once again, Mrs. Obama wore Jason Wu:

The ruby-colored chiffon and velvet dress was a follow-up to the white gown Wu made for her four years ago when she was new to Washington, the pomp and circumstance, and the fashion press.

She paired the dress with a handmade diamond embellished ring by jewelry designer Kimberly McDonald, and shoes designed by Jimmy Choo. At the end of the inaugural festivities, the first lady's outfit and accompanying accessories will go to the National Archives.

"I can't believe it. It's crazy," said Wu, reached at his Manhattan studio. "To have done it once was already the experience of my life. To have a second time is tremendous."

President Barack Obama also struck a similar style chord to his first-term inaugural balls: He wore a white tie with his tuxedo.

Jennifer Hudson's Tribute to Whitney Houston: VIDEO

"I Will Always Love You". Hudson reportedly had a tough time getting through this in rehearsals because her emotions were getting the best of her. What did everyone think of the various tributes on the show - too long, not enough, lopsided?

Adele Sweeps The Grammys; Nicki Minaj's 'Roman Holiday': VIDEO

Minaj

Adele sang splendidly and won everything she was nominated for, all six awards, taking it all in stride right up until the end, when she broke down accepting the award for Best Album. It was sweet. Glenn Campbell performed well, despite Alzheimer's. The surviving Beach Boys, reunited just for the awards, sounded far better doing "Good Vibrations" than either the touring band of faux Beach Boys or Brian Wilson's solo group. The Foo Fighters were formulaic. Katy Perry, like most teenybopper-courting space aliens since Marc Bolan, is entirely a creation of studio gimmickry. Rihanna was fine. Jennifer Hudson's tribute to Whitney was brief and tasteful. Paul McCartney's regal and generous, aging vocal cords or no. And Nicki Minaj ...

Well. It's a good thing they stuck her at the end. She debuted a new single, "Roman Holiday," from the upcoming album Pink Friday: Roman Reloaded, and in so doing took hip-hop to strange, gothic places. Sometimes Nicki sounded like The Dresden Dolls. She shouted, moaned, brayed off-key, toyed with Catholic iconography, got huffy with a priest, and flew. Watch AFTER THE JUMP ...

Jennifer Hudson Will Sing Whitney Houston Tribute At Grammys; Adele Will Just Sing: VIDEO

HudsonJennifer Hudson will sing a tribute to Whitney Houston at tonight's Grammy Awards, FOX News reports:

"She's a good friend of the Grammys," [said Ken Ehrlich, executive producer of the Grammy Awards]. "She's had some very significant appearances on the show. It felt right to ask to her to come and help us honor Whitney, which she will do musically."

This will be the 30-year-old Hudson's third performance at the Grammys. She received a standing ovation for her moving rendition of "You Pulled Me Through" in 2009, in what was one of her first performances after the murder of her mother and brother. That same year, Houston presented Hudson with her Grammy for Best R&B Album. In 2011, Hudson joined Christina Aguilera, Florence Welch, Martina McBride and Yolanda Adams onstage to pay tribute to Aretha Franklin.

AdeleAs it happens, Whitney presented Jennifer Hudson with her first Grammy in 2009.

The English writer, singer, and general phenom Adele is widely expected to sweep this evening's Grammys, and until Whitney Houston's death on Saturday the chatter among Grammywatchers mostly consisted of speculation on the state of Adele's voice. She will perform live tonight for the first time since November, when she undewent surgery to correct problems stemming from a vocal hemorrhage. She ought to do fine. Last week she sang the first verse of "Rolling In The Deep" a capella during an interview with Anderson Cooper, and she sounded fantastic. Maybe her timbre's a little darker than before. It'll be a good sound to hear tonight, during a uniquely solemn Grammys. Take a listen AFTER THE JUMP ...
