The 62nd Annual Grammy Awards are taking place at Staples Center in Los Angeles tonight, though the minds of many of those in the arena — and across Los Angeles — are on the news that emerged earlier today of Los Angeles Lakers legend Kobe Bryant's tragic death. After Lizzo kicked the night off by shouting "We love you Kobe!" host Alicia Keys was joined on stage by Boyz II Men — who hail from Bryant's hometown of Philadelphia — to pay an emotional tribute to Bryant. The four performed the Motown classic "It's So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday," best known for Boyz II Men's 1991 a cappella cover. Watch the full performance above, via The Hollywood Reporter.
