J. Lo read the Grammys memo SUPER carefully

Jennifer Lopez once again landed in Grammys fashion history with her dress for the 2013 show.

The singer/actress arrived in a black gown with a slit all the way up to her hip, leaving her entire right leg exposed. As a presenter, it was just barely within CBS' standards rules, which asked for nether regions to be well-covered.

"As you can see, I read the memo," Lopez joked as she took the mic to announce the best pop solo performance Grammy along with Pitbull. The Grammys couldn't resist showing the infamous Versace gown Lopez wore in 2000, which had a neckline that extended down to her navel.

Her "To The Floor" collaborator praised her outfit (as did Drake, who, seated in the audience, had an expression that said it all).

"You look gorgeous, and you inspired the memo," Pitbull told Lopez.

What do you think of her gown? By the way, that pop solo performance award went to Adele for "Set Fire to the Rain."

What's next for Frank Ocean? Bora Bora

Frank Ocean has been one of the favorites to win big at this year's Grammy awards, but the singer himself is more focused on his performance.

"It's a whole other type of mind-frame," Ocean told us on the Grammys red carpet. "You still try to enjoy it and be present."

LL Cool J: This year's Grammys is about the nominees

After the 2012 Grammy Awards, which were quickly revamped into a tribute to Whitney Houston in light of the singer's shocking death, the 2013 show is going to focus on the nominees.

"We did what we had to do for Whitney in a respectful and loving way," LL Cool J told us on the red carpet. "And this year it’s about these nominees here tonight and the superstars and legends who are in the building."

A Fun.-filled Grammys red carpet

It wouldn't be surprising if you assumed the monster success behind Fun.'s "We Are Young" with Janelle Monáe was the calculated work of a studio, but that's not the case.

"It wasn’t about a record label putting two hot artists together," Fun. member Andrew Dost told CNN on the red carpet. "Janelle’s an artist and just wanted to be a part of the song."

Indeed, Monáe told us on Sunday that she "didn’t know it was going to be such a big song, I just knew I loved it."

To Monáe, "We Are Young" is "cross-generational," but for Dost, Nate Ruess and Jack Antonoff the song "was a little more negative, and suddenly it just had this positive anthemic effect on people."

The band, which is one of the lead nominees at the 55th ceremony, is made up of "great guys," Monáe said. "[They] deserve every accoalade."

Carly Rae Jepsen obeys CBS' fashion rules

CBS handed down pretty strict guidelines for fashion tonight at the Grammy Awards, but two-time nominee Carly Rae Jepsen had no problem complying.

The network's standards department sent out an email to Grammys contacts on Tuesday, telling them to keep their breasts, butts and genitals well-covered. Jepsen, who's going to present during tonight's show, followed suit in a blue floor-length gown that offered only a hint of cleavage.

CBS wants Grammys talent covered up

The Grammy Awards is typically the place where stars can let it all hang out, but CBS' Standards department is hoping to keep nudity to a minimum during this year's show.

According to Deadline, a wardrobe advisory memo was sent to Grammys contacts on Tuesday night, kindly asking them to remind those appearing on stage that breasts, butts and genitalia need to be covered up.

It sounds like they're going after the sideboob, too.
