Bon Jovi performs alongside Springsteen, and McCartney dances in the crowd at the Grammys MusiCares event

A couple of Jersey boys managed to get away with stealing the show just a few moments after it had begun their performance. A unique opportunity presented itself when Jon Bon Jovi, the recipient of the MusiCares Person of the Year award for 2024, opened the gala that was intended to recognize his charitable endeavors and his long career in the music industry.



Before any fans could enter the stage, Bon Jovi, consisting of drummer Tico Torres, keyboardist David Bryan, guitarist John Shanks, bassist Hugh McDonald, and percussionist Everett Bradley, took over the room on Friday at the Los Angeles Convention Center. They began by performing the band’s new single, the consistently anthemic rocker “Legendary,” and then they performed a song by a fellow New Jersey icon.

In spite of the passing of his mother, Adele, who was 98 years old, on Wednesday, Springsteen, who was smiling, maintained his pledge to celebrate his old friend. Jon Bon Jovi, who is 61 years old, introduced Springsteen by saying, “My hero and my mentor.”

During the performance of Bon Jovi’s “Who Says You Can’t Go Home,” Springsteen, who was dressed in tan suede, and Bon Jovi, who was dressed in black and had ashen hair, traded guitar licks and verses on the song. Paul McCartney, who was beaming with joy, danced near his seat. Despite the fact that it was Jon Bon Jovi’s night, there was not a single person who complained about the presence of a Springsteen song.



In fact, a sing-along and dueling harmonicas signified a detour to “The Promised Land.” The Jon Bon Jovi Soul Foundation and four sites of the JBJ Soul Kitchen, a nonprofit community restaurant, were among the charity initiatives that led to Bon Jovi being selected as the honoree for the 33rd annual MusiCares event. Bon Jovi was chosen as the speaker due to his charitable work.

MusiCares is the foundation arm of the Recording Academy, which is responsible for producing the Grammy Awards. Its mission is to provide support to members of the music community, including financial assistance in times of need, medical bills, addiction recovery, disaster relief, and treatment for serious illnesses. Melissa Etheridge, Shania Twain, Jason Isbell, Lainey Wilson, Ted Danson, Lenny Kravitz, Sammy Hagar, Gayle King, Kylie Minogue, and Rita Wilson were among the many well-known artists, presenters, and visitors who filled the space, which was around 2,000 in size.

As Bon Jovi made their way down the red carpet prior to the event, Torres took the opportunity to recognize one of the most significant achievements of their frontman. He remarked, “Jon has been the one who has kept us together for the past four decades, and that is not an easy thing to do.”



The following are some of the most memorable acts that took place throughout the event lasted for more than two hours and was hosted by Jim Gaffigan, who made suitable jokes. The march of the pace and the whine of the pedal steel guitar that propelled Jon Bon Jovi’s solo smash from 1990, which was nominated for an Academy Award, were tautly recreated by Etheridge and Larkin Poe’s sparkling Rebecca and Megan Lovell.

While Larkin Poe enhanced the cascade of guitars, Etheridge unleashed her incendiary voice, which was all grit and kerosene, on the song that was purposefully sluggish. She infused it with her own cadence and drama, and she did so while wearing the cowboy hat that was required. With a rousing performance of “Bad Medicine,” the artist who has already been nominated for two Grammys and who already crosses the genres of country and rock,




sometimes with a smattering of hip-hop, demonstrated his versatility. However, the fact that a musician who works in a variety of genres, such as Jelly Roll, is able to perform the punchy rocker with such ease is another indication of the allure of Bon Jovi’s discography. An emotional Jelly Roll told Bon Jovi, “You’ve inspired me my whole life.” Bon Jovi couldn’t help but smile.
