Back of Ladies & Gentlemen of the Music World Feel the Spirit of Life Some of the biggest names in the music industry came out last night for the Spirit of Life Award Dinner in LA, honoring Universal Music Group CEO Doug Morris for his commitment to philanthropy. Rihanna, Mariah, and Adam Levine were just a few who showed off their vocal talents on stage, while Gwen Stefani and Sheryl Crow cheered from the audience. Nick Cannon was right there for Mariah after her performance, but Rihanna was without her constant companion Chris Brown, making us wonder if there's any truth to the rumors that she's got a new man. Jay-Z posed with his protege before kicking off his tour with the help of DJ AM later in the night.

LOL. tiggerchick2 8 years Is that Jay-Z actually smiling?? I had to ask since it is such a rare occasion. Adam Levine is hot but he really needs to have a meeting with the razor. Can't stand Rihanna or Gwen to be honest. californiagirlx7 8 years Gwen and Duffy look really cute, love them both. I like Rihanna and Mariah's songs (for the most parts) but their style is rather hit or miss. Rihanna's dress would have been cute without the belt. AndiO1225 8 years I worked at this event and it was AMAZING. Gwen Stefani looked adorable and Mariah Carey has the most amazing skin, and Duffy was so sweet and so cute. cnlew 8 years It's nice to see Mariah finally wearing something a little more age appropriate. chubbieecheeks 8 years What the hell is going on here? Rihanna looks hot but she has a skunk on her head, and Mimi's eyebrows are lopsided. clooneywoman 8 years wow Rihanna is looking really good with this new thing she did with her hair and i liked her appearance with Jay-Z , Gwen is so darn cute :) superstar2780 8 years adam is hot, although the neck hair is a bit much.

I used to be a big fan of hers but now i find her extremely annoying girl21innyc 8 years Rihanna' dress is cute minus the belt, and the updo goes. I fancy the black dress she wore as well. Mariah, that color is a little to 80's prom but she looks age appropriate not in need of oxygen, kudos. Gwen love her! LolaSvelt 8 years That belt ruins Rihanna's dress. spicyaroma 8 years Gwen looks hot! I like the picture of Jay-Z & Rihanna, very sweet :) tvon5432 8 years Wow what a great night, with great artists.
