Will this not defeat the object? when you click delete, will the row not get deleted and your color with it?

You can do the following by Injecting Javascript function on onClick of link button for a grid row.

For injecting JS, you need to use RowDataBound of GridView, something like:
protected void GridView_RowDataBound(Object sender, GridViewRowEventArgs e)
   DataControlRowType rtype = e.Row.RowType;  
   if (rtype == DataControlRowType.DataRow && rtype != DataControlRowType.Footer
       && rtype != DataControlRowType.Separator && rtype != DataControlRowType.Header
       && rtype != DataControlRowType.Pager)  
      // Highligh row on click of row
      e.Row.Attributes.Add("onclick", "Highlight(this);");
Modify it for any event like mouseover or link button click, etc.
