The ever-so-stylish Erykah Badu, who was tapped to host, made sure to turn heads as she made her way down the red carpet. The fashion lover pulled up off a bold and glamorous look. She was draped in a black Stéphane Rolland Haute Couture dress that she finished with her signature black top hat.

The 44-year-old songstress opened the show with a medley of her classic hits, including “Danger,” “On & On,” and “Love Of My Life.” Just oozing that Baduizm.
