Red Carpet Arrivals: The 51st Annual Grammy Awards!!

My Curvy Divas (and a few skinny had an amazing night at The 51st Annual Grammy Awards last eyelids began to get heavy about 1 hour into the broadcast and I hung on long enough to catch a glimpse of La Diva Whitney present the Best R&B Album award to Jennifer Hudson and long enough to hear Jennifer's AWESOME singing performance!

The curvy divas (and a few big boys) took home several awards and looked awesome on the red carpet....

You gotta give it to Miss Whitney, Mama looked AMAZING last night...all was well until she began to speak and then you just knew that something was amiss with's all good though...she got a HUGE reception and a standing O from the crowd! Yeah...we ALL want Whitney to do well and it looks like she's almost there.....almost.

Snoop Dogg was there with his curvaceous and beautiful wife Shante

Queen Latifah looking regal in Navy Blue (jury's still out on the dress though...and hell blue is thisclose to black!!!)

And Miss Natalie Cole (Simply because I LOVE the dress! See, color CAN be a beautiful thing!)

Y'all know I love me some Anthony Hamilton and his wife Tarsha McMillan can be considered a "curvy chick!"

Not really sure of what's going on with Raven Symone here

Jennifer Hudson (This chick is gonna be HUGE!!!)

The future looks bright for this Curvy Diva from the UK as well (But I will be honest...I DO believe in that "Best New Artist" I'mma lil nervous for her). You know Miss Anna Wintour styled Adele for the Grammys and what does she choose??? But of course...ANOTHER BLACK DRESS!!!!
