Grammy Awards, one of the biggest celebrations in the music world, held its 51st gala with strong stage performances. Telecast live by CBS from Los Angeles' Staples Center was the anticipated collaborations between Miley Cyrus and Taylor Swift as well as the mega joint performance by T.I., Kanye West, Jay-Z, Lil Wayne and the very pregnant M.I.A.

Miley and Taylor sang an acoustic version of the latter's "Fifteen" before announcing the winner for category of Best Pop Collaboration With Vocals. Moments later Katy Perry took the stage, ascending from a banana platform to sing her hit song "I Kissed a Girl". Fruits became the theme of her performance, as apparent from her costume.

One of the most-waited performances that night was "Swagga Like Us" which was delivered by America's very own big rappers and British import M.I.A. who was due to give birth to her baby that day. Queen Latifah gave an introduction prior to their black and white appearance, calling them as a "rap pack".

Also taking the stage that night were John Mayer, Keith Urban, Kenny Chesney, Radiohead, Stevie Wonder and many others.

  • "Fifteen" - Taylor Swift Feat. Miley Cyrus
  • "I Kissed a Girl" - Katy Perry
  • "Swagga Like Us" - T.I. Feat. Kanye West, Lil Wayne, Jay-Z and M.I.A.

More performances by Jonas Brothers, Sugarland, and Justin Timberlake can be watched here.
