Like I said before, overall the Grammys were disappointing, but these highlights made it bearable.
Adele: Adele swept the Grammys. She won all six of the awards that she was nominated for including Song of the Year, Record of the Year and Album of the Year. She also performed “Rolling In The Deep” and sounded amazing, especially given that she recently recovered from throat surgery.
Bruno Mars: Despite the fact that he jacked Frankie Lymon/James Brown’s swag, he put on a completely enjoyable and lively performance. And I LOL’ed when he said “Get your rich asses out of those seats!”
Jennifer Hudson: So although I’m disappointed that she didn’t even finish the song, I thought that she gave a solid performance. And I love that she had the Whitney hair while she did it. Nice touch. Still cannot believe that she’s gone btw—I’m still in a little bit of shock.
Honorable mention goes to Rihanna because her performance of “We Found Love” was among her best live performances I’ve seen. She’s really tryna learn to sing and that effort is applauded. I’m mad she brought the Willy Bounce back, but she is clearly also trying to step her dance game up so kudos. However, singing that second song was a mistake. She clearly din’t have two songs in her to sing live. Baby steps Rih… baby steps.
