Kelly Rowland, in a revealing long black dress, says she just barely skirted this year's Grammy dress code. Sort of.

"I almost broke the code," the R&B singer joked backstage Sunday.

"If I turn to the side I might," she added to laughter.

Rowland was referring to the memo that CBS, the show's broadcaster, put out this week asking that participants make sure "buttocks and female breasts are adequately covered."

Rowland's Georges Chakra dress had portions that are see-through.
