Here are some of my favorite moments from the 2017 GRAMMYs.
The big show opened with Adele singing her smash, “Hello.” No fancy production needed.
It’s VERY rare to find commercial success when you work as an independent. Chance The Rapper inspired us all by winning a Grammy without a big-time label. Well deserved!
21P stripped down to their undies to accept their Grammy. The background story is legit!
We all know Ed Sheeran is crazy talented. If you’ve seen him in concert, this type of performance isn’t new as he often performs without a band. Again, my fellow ginger slays. He didn’t get a standing-O which really surprised me.
I love, love, love mash-ups. Being able to watch a mash-up LIVE was super cool and to see unlikely artists sing together, more awesome!
Little Big Town needs to cover Katy Perry more often! They give “Teenage Dream” a run for its money. Love it!
Katy Perry premiered her new single “Chained To The Rhythm” and the message couldn’t be more clear. Loved it (and the Home Improvement memes lol)!
Queen Bey is nothing but class. If you ever win an award, take notes from this acceptance speech.
The “Once” performance by Alicia Keys and Maren Morris blew my socks off last night. One of the best, if not the best performance of the night.
Poor Adele had audio issues during her tribute for George Michael and abruptly stopped the performance and started over. Glad she did. She did amazing! Last year, Adele did tell Ellen she would start a performance over if there were any issues.
ANOTHER very unfortunate audio issue occurred during the Gaga/Metallica performance. James Hetfield’s mic wasn’t working for a good chunk of the set. Also, Metallica wasn’t introduced before the performance. Come on! Gaga and the band powered through it all and gave us a rockin’ experience!
The Prince tribute by Bruno was another favorite of mine. Instead of singing a sad ballad, Bruno rocked the house with his guitar. Long live the legacy of Prince.
The In Memoriam portion of the GRAMMYs is always sad. But John Legend and Cynthia Erivo performed a stunning rendition of The Beach Boys’ classic “God Only Knows.” The only thing missing? Seeing Christina Grimmie in the slide show.
Adele, again, swept SONG, RECORD and ALBUM of the year. No other artist has done that. Her acceptance speeches for Record and Album of the year will melt your heart. Adele is as real as it gets. And she was right, Bey should have won the Grammy for best album.
A moment on the show I didn’t enjoy? My tweet says it all.
