Ledisi: ‘I Don’t Have a Clue’ Why Grammys Chose Beyonce; Gives Bey Props (Watch)

*On the Grammy red carpet Sunday night, Ledisi was asked about the show’s decision to have Beyonce sing “Take My Hand, Precious Lord” during a “Selma” segment, when Ledisi – who was in the building – actually sings the gospel standard in the film as part of her portrayal of Mahalia Jackson.

“I don’t have a clue,” she tells “ET’s” Kevin Frazier, “but I will say what I’m excited about is I got the chance to play an iconic figure in ‘Selma’…”

She continued her pivot toward the film, then gracefully brought it back to Beyonce, giving Mrs. Carter her props in a lineage of female vocalists who have performed the gospel classic.

Ledisi said she’d rather look at it “like that, instead of looking at it as a negative.”
