The music industry's finest came out for the Grammy Awards in L.A. -- and singer Jennifer Hudson, 27, stole the spotlight with an early win and a stirring performance.
Hudson took home the Grammy for Best R&B Album for her self-titled debut, and an emotional Jennifer thanked God and her family when she accepted the award. "I don't really know what to say," said a choked-up Hudson. 'Wow, I'm just in awe right now. I would like to thank my family in heaven and those that are here today. I just don't know where to start. Everybody, thank you all."
Later in the show, Jennifer took the stage to sing her hit song "You Pulled Me Through" -- with the help of a choir.
The "Dream Girls" star performed at the Super Bowl on February 1, which marked the singer's first public appearance since three of her family members were murdered in October.
