  • Busta Rhymes dubs President Donald Trump 'Agent Orange' as stars get political at Grammys

From the depiction of the divine mother in Beyonce's imagery to Busta Rhymes's jab at President Trump's "Muslim ban", religion took center stage at the 2017 Grammy Awards.

The performance featured women sporting the hijab. Thank You 4 Your service, which.Paak also appeared on.

A Tribe Called Quest kicked down a literal wall in a powerful anti-Trump protest at the 59th Grammy Awards.

The song ended with Q-Tip chanting "Resist!".

Katy Perry, right, and Skip Marley performed "Chained to the Rhythm" at the Grammys as the Constitution was projected behind them. This all changed when the group performed songs from their 2016 album We Got It From Here. Q-Tip ended the set with repeated chants to "resist", a rallying cry that many anti Trump protesters have been using since he won the presidential election past year. The next generation, she said, should be able to see themselves from the Grammy stage to the White House, "and have no doubt they are lovely, intelligent, and capable".

Tell us what you think! He stated, "I've always believed that musical artists are more than just their music" and "They have strong feelings, and I appreciate things that they have to say". And to think I enjoyed seeing you perform as a child.
