Grammy Artists' History with Oprah
Tuning in to the Grammys this weekend? Check out top moments some of this year's nominees and performers have shared with Oprah.
With six nominations, Jay-Z is among those leading the pack this year. He's a formidable force in the music world, but we can't help but gush over the adorable moments he had with Oprah. Whether it was teaching Oprah to rap or touring his old neighborhood, Jay-Z revealed a softer side that we love!
Grammy nominees and multiplatinum recording artists Carrie Underwood, Rihanna and Usher all sat down with Oprah to discuss family, their careers and more last year on Oprah's Next Chapter. Carrie and her husband, Mike Fisher, had their first TV interview together with Oprah. Rihanna poured out her honest feelings toward another 2013 Grammy nominee Chris Brown. And, Usher gave his first—and what he says is his last—interview about his divorce and custody battle.
We can't wait to see Alicia Keys and Taylor Swift perform at this year's awards. Oprah noticed Alicia's standout star power early on in her career, but by the time she sat down with the young diva for a 2004 O magazine interview she'd already collected five Grammys. And, we remember when young starlet Taylor Swift first released her Grammy Album of the Year, Fearless. Now, she seems like a veteran in the music industry.
