The Grammy’s was a bittersweet event this winter; overshadowed by the death of Lakers player Kobe Bryant earlier that day. Nevertheless, host Alicia Keys did an incredible job at making it a grand night in the field of music.
Performances that blew our mind:
– Usher & FKA Twigs’ tribute to Prince
Usher began with a three-song medley of Prince’s songs and FKA Twigs took the stage in the instrumental break to deliver a dance. For the last song in the medley, the two artists let loose and unleashed the ultimate disco vibes.
– Demi Lovato is back
The singer made her comeback after her 2018 overdose, singing a song she wrote just before titled “Anyone.” Demi’s first performance since hospitalisation was as emotional as it gets.
– Tyler the Creator and his clones
The rapper shook the stage with a medley of his “Earfquake” and “New Magic Wand.” The camera was shaking, the backup dancers were clones, and the rapper belted out his song lyrics before pointing a (finger) gun to his head and falling backwards into flames.
The big winners of the evening:
Even though Lizzo was leading the race with eight nominations, with Billie Eilish and Lil Nas X following with six each, Billie Eilish and her brother Finneas, aka her producer, were the big winners of the evening.
The 18 year-old singer won five of her six Grammy’s for which she was nominated, including best new artist, album of the year (“When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?”), and song of the year (“Bad Guy”).
