Grammy Awards most memorable gowns: J.Lo, Beyonce, Katy Perry and more

Of all the year’s awards shows, the Grammys are always the red carpet event that guarantees a bit of the weird and wacky. Who can forget Jennifer Lopez’s plunging Versace show-stopper in 2000 or Lady Gaga’s jaw-dropping 2011 entrance when the pop star hatched from an egg?

In 2014, Madonna made a show-stopping entrance with her son, David — who had styled the pair — in matching tuxedos, while Katy Perry wore a frothy gown emblazoned with music notes.
