No doubt about it. The Grammys were jam packed with historic performances. Almost every stage collaboration had not only a special meaning to the artists performing, but was a brilliant mesh of legendary classics and new school hitmakers.
First off was Beyonce, who was just a delight because she performed every girl’s favorite song right now Drunk in Love, with hubby Jay-Z. Many are saying that Bey’s performance was bad and seemed very rushed, But quite the contrary. We think Bey was just having a great time and it was so cute to see Bey big upping her Jigga man’s “surfboard.” LOL
For us hip hop heads, the disappointment of the evening was Kendrick Lamar not taking home Best Rap Album of the Year, but he blew our minds with his performance of MADD City, along with Imagine Dragons, proving once again that he has his audience on the edge of their seats each and every time.
The two remaining Beatles Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr performed for the first time in five years. The duo sang McCartney’s song Queenie Eye.
The performance of the evening that was a disappointment was Daft Punk and Pharrell Williams’ singing their hit Get Lucky with Stevie Wonder. It did seem quite unrehearsee; not to mention both Pharrell and Stevie were off key and hitting wrong notes most of the song. Stevie we know you’re a legend, but that doesn’t mean your audience will enjoy or even respect an unprofessional performance. On the other hand, we do applaud producer Pharrell winning 4 Grammys, including Producer of the Year.
P!nk gave a refreshing performance of her beautiful song Love Again ft. Nate Reuss (whose voice is just breathtaking might we add.) The first part of her song, she performed on an aerial trapeze (similar to the Cirque du Soliel acts.)
