For the undecided.

Queen Bey’s opening performance reigned supreme, but it was the “robots” who ruled in the end.

What would these (dead) musicians look like today? We admit, the question — and these illustrations — creep us out, but in a can’t-look-away kind of way. (There are also a lot of turtlenecks.)

Ron Sachs of Sachs Media Group hired the Michigan-based company Phojoe to use a computerized age-progression technology and add a few years to portraits of “music legends” who died before their time.

From left to right, top to bottom: Elvis, Bob Marley, Janis Joplin, Kurt Cobain, Karen Carpenter, Jimi Hendrix, John Lennon, Jim Morrison.

R&B singer Luke James, who opened for Beyonce on recent tours, stopped by our Studio A for a three-song set and a chat. About Bey, he said: “She’s my big sis and she looks out for me.” http://usat.ly/1eJb25S

Here, he performs “I.O.U.,” “Make Love To Me,” and “I Want You.”

Holly Williams stops by StudioA

Holly Williams has a great pedigree: She’s the daughter of Hank Williams Jr. and granddaughter of Hank Williams. But she has her own brand of country music, and she stopped by our StudioA for a three-song set and a chat: http://usat.ly/1bQB9q0

Here, she performs “Drinkin,’” “Happy” and “Waiting on June.” These are great tunes for a September Saturday.
