Last Night’s Grammys 2014 – Watch the Performances!

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.)

paul maccartney cannot get his songs back

sir-paul-mccartney-awi

Sir Paul McCartney is apparently very angry that will not be able to claim back ownership of the Beatles catalog now that the former owner Michael Jackson is now deceased. The former Beatles thought that he would be able to buy back at least some of his most famous songs, however, it has just been revealed that Jackson sold most of his rights to the songs right before he died.

In 1985, Jackson outbid Macca and purchases the rights soon after his duets with McCartney (The Girl Is Mine and Say, Say, Say.)

He secretly sold them however, to unload some of his financial troubles.

A source at the Los Angeles HQ of Sony/ATV, the music publishing company which shares responsibility for the hits with Jackson”’s estate, said Jackson had dispensed with all but five per cent of his remaining 25 per cent of the catalogue.

Along with McCartey, the news is sure to be a big blow to Macca, who has complained in the past that he still has to pay to play some of his own songs.
