It was a somber day for the Grammy Awards, considering the terrible events that had taken place earlier that day.

Kobe Bryant passed away the day of the awards, and the whole world was feeling the effect of this truly horrific event.

Not only was Kobe given tribute at the Grammys, but so was Nipsey Hussle.

His fellow rappers, DJ Khalid, Meek Mill, John Legend, and Roddy Ricch all sang a song for them.

It was breathtaking and had everyone's hearts in their throat.

They rapped and sang about love, peace and the beauty of it all. It was truly a performance to remember.

2. John Legend

John Legend was in a performance with all sorts of rappers, singers and all sorts of entertainers, but he too dedicated his performance to Kobe.

Or at least that's how it felt.

4. DJ Khalid

DJ Khalid, the legendary producer, was kind enough to do some shout outs at the end of his performance, shouting out not only Kobe but his daughter Kienna as well.

5. Priyanka Chopra

As you can see, Priyanka Chopra paid tribute to the true, blue American hero by wearing his number on one of her nails.

What a subtle way to honor the man.

6. The Jonas Brothers

Not only did the Jo Bros cancel all their interviews out of respect for the lost legend, but they also wore some purple ribbons to commemorate Bryant.

7. Alicia Keys and Boyz II Men

After Lizzo rocked the house, Alicia Keys was joined by Boyz II Men to sing “It’s So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday”.

She also gave a heartfelt speech about the player.

"To be honest with you, we’re all feeling crazy sadness right now because earlier today, Los Angeles, America and the whole wide world lost a hero."

"We’re literally standing here heartbroken in the house that Kobe Bryant built. Right now, Kobe and his daughter Gianna and all of those who have been tragically lost today are in our spirit, they’re in our hearts, they’re in our prayers."

She played her pre-planned opening, an original song set to Lewis Capaldi’s "Someone You Loved", and shouted out the basketball player then as well.

She claimed he also loved her music.

8. Lizzo

You can tell that this singer has a lot of respect for the late basketball star.

For starters, she declined to do an interview out of respect for the star.

But she also delivered her opening performance to him as well.

“Tonight is for you Kobe", she said before kicking off an awesome mashup of “Cuz I Love You” and “Truth Hurts.”

9. Lil Nas X

He was one of the last rappers to show respect for the sports legend, but like many before him, he was seen throwing up a Kobe jersey in respect for Bryant.

10. Rev. Run

During the Aerosmith and Run D.M.C performance, we got to see Rev. Run holding up a Los Angeles Lakers jersey, and it obviously belonged to the former legend who passed away that day.

11. The Jersey Spotlights

During the show, if you looked up to the Staples Center you could see that both Kobe's numbers (24 and 8) were spotlighted.

Truly a great way to honor the basketball player.
