More pics and my recap of the day below.

Started the day the day expecting to do the normal red carpet routine and dip, but got a last second call to take pictures behind the scenes and during the actual show(shout out Lowkey). Quickly got rid of my regular media pass for the all access pass, niccceeee. Chilled backstage and watch a few rehearsals and seen the madness that goes on behind the scenes. I expected a lot of Michael Jackson tributes and peeped Jamie Foxx and Ne-Yo rehearsing their tribute.
