Alicia Keys to Perform Etta James Tribute

Lets face it. While we may be rooting for our favorites to take the top honors, most of us really tune in to the Grammys for the red carpet and, most importantly, the music. Slated to deliver what is sure to be a moving performance, Alicia Keys will pay tribute to the late, great Etta James, with blues legend Bonnie Raitt sharing the stage. This years award show is shaping up quite nicely, with last minute announcements peaking our interest all the more. The tribute will add yet another dimension to the ecclectic show line up, which includes performances by Nicki Minaj, David Guetta and a Rihanna and Coldplay duet.

Alicia Keys certainly can pack a soulful punch will on stage, but will she be able to do Etta James justice? Or is there another singer who would have made a better fit?
