The 2013 Grammy Awards, held in Los Angeles, California on February 10, may not have had any big winners to sweep all top awards this year but the show was a success nonetheless.

Sitar legend Ravi Shankar, who passed away at the age of 92 in December last year, was posthumously awarded the best world music album trophy at the 55th Grammys, pipping his own daughter Anoushka, a day after being honoured with a Lifetime Achievement award by The Recording Academy.

While on the red carpet, Jennifer Lopez flaunted her enviable body as she arrived in a risque gown with toy boy Casper Smart.
