With some of the biggest names in entertainment getting spruced up for the bash on Sunday, the stars put on a dazzling display at the Beverly Hilton in Los Angeles.
Lighting up the red carpet was pregnant Chrissy Tiegen, who wowed in figure-hugging emerald green as she arrived with husband John Legend.

The Clive Davis event – which goes by the rather long official title of the Clive Davis and The Recording Academy present ‘The Pre-Grammy Gala’ – is an industry staple, which not only sees the who’s who of the entertainment business come out but has also started some of music’s biggest careers.
Known as the Man With A Golden Ear, every year Clive picks a new artist he thinks is the one to watch.
One of those he found and developed was the late Whitney Houston, who died the night of her mentor’s party on February 11, 2013.

Davis, 83, told Billboard about this year’s event: ‘When you’re at the Grammys, there are 15,000 people there and it’s an arena-like setting, whereas here, it’s a selected group of at the most 1,000, all of whom, whether they come from politics, sports, music, film – love music. So it really is very special and it has a life of its own.’
The event outgrew the Beverly Hills Hotel so now takes place at the massive ballroom at the Beverly Hilton.
With only 1,000 invites, some of the world’s biggest stars have begged to attend the exclusive gala, even Kanye West.

‘This is the only time we put down our armor,’ Davis told New York Post.
He explained that in 2004 West auditioned for 20 minutes outside his hotel bungalow window for a chance to get on the guest list.
‘I don’t normally encourage that kind of thing, but he convinced me.’ he said.
Davis told People last year that he was still getting over Houston’s death: ‘I miss her. I miss her personally, and I miss her as staggering performer.
‘She was charming, she was funny, she loved music. She had no boundaries. She could do everything.’
