Some Grammy attendees avoided the red carpet because of the torrential rain; others, like Beyonce, probably never intended to walk it in the first place, and still more DID but then changed clothes for their performances, or presenting duties. It was a jam-packed and at times oddly paced night, but they DID get Celine Dion to come and she seemed in good form and great spirits, so fingers crossed that it only gets better for her from here.
