Last week, the music industry gathered in Los Angeles to pay tribute to the living legend that is Stevie Wonder. The timeless music of one of soul's greatest artists was performed by Lady Gaga, Tony Bennett, Pharrell, and Annie Lennox. Amidst all of the big stars, it's no surprise that the one who really brought the house down was none other than Queen Bey. She started off the show with a medley of Wonder's most groove-worthy, get-up-and-dance hits including "Master Blaster (Jammin')," "Fingertips" and "Higher Ground." Beyoncé was joined on stage by Ed Sheeran and guitar maestro Gary Clarke Jr. With fans blowing her hair ever so majestically, Beyoncé brought the entire room to its feet and gave the kind of flawless performance that made Stevie Wonder himself find new life in his own music.
There's no doubt Beyoncé helped get an entire legion of her fans turned on to the music of Stevie Wonder (that is, if they weren't already). The full-bodied passion that was thrown into the performance is a testament to the power of Wonder's music — it just gets into you. What's perhaps even more mesmerizing than Bey (who am I kidding? NOTHING is), are the looks of awe and, yes, wonder, by the star-studded audience.
Here are all of the moments from the tribute that just screamed, "Bow down."
