Taylor Swift, Miley Cyrus, Sam Smith and more stars came out on Saturday for Clive Davis’ annual Pre-GRAMMY Gala And Salute To Industry Icons party at the Beverly Hilton. The event honored Sony/ATV chairman Martin Bandier, who received with the Recording Academy’s Industry Icon award. Check out the photos below!
The fete was a who’s who of the music industry, with Chris Brown, Iggy Azalea, Pharrell, Ricky Martin, Jennifer Hudson, and countless others in attendance. Cyrus was accompanied by boyfriend Patrick Schwarzenegger, while John Legend brought wife Chrissy Teigen. Exes Jordin Sparks and Jason Derulo both attended as well.
Smith and Pharrell were among the performers, along with Barry Gibb, Carole King and Johnny Mathis. Smokey Robinson also took the stage with Miguel, Aloe Blacc and J.C. Chasez. Legend performed with Meghan Trainor, and Azalea was joined by Hudson and Rita Ora.
There was also a moment of silence in honor of Bobbki Kristina Brown, who remains hospitalized in a medically-induced coma on life support, one week after being found unconscious in the bathtub. It was three years ago this weekend that Brown’s mother Whitney Houston died at the Beverly Hilton the night before the Grammys.
Grammy Awards host LL Cool J also headed up a bash of his own, with Michael Strahan serving as co-host. They were joined at the “Hennessy Toasts Achievements In Music” party by a mix of musicians and actors. Nicki Minaj, meanwhile, joined forces with 1OAK to celebrate music’s biggest weekend, while Primary Wave held its 9th annual pre-Grammy party with Ashanti, Cee Lo and more.
