58th Annual Grammy Awards

Music’s biggest night ended just a few minutes ago and it is safe to say that it was one for the books!

Miss Taylor Swift opened up the show in a very sparkly outfit singing her latest single Out Of The Woods. She was as fierce as ever and her vocals were as strong as they always are, if not more!

Kendrick Lamar then won best rap album and left the stage to Sam Hunt and Carrie Underwood who performed a medley of some of their newest songs proving that country will always have its place on the Grammys’ stage.

Ariana Grande then introduced my fellow canadian The Weeknd with a very questionable joke. None the less, he went on performing two of his biggest hits in two very different settings. He even ended his performance with an acoustic set that got him a standing ovation from his fellow musician friends.

Andra Day and Ellie Golding followed up with a very strong performance full of girl power! Beautiful women with graceful yet strong voices, what more could we ask for?

The award for best country album them went to Traveller and…

John Legend, Demi Lovato, Luke Bryan, Meghan Trainor and Tyrese Gibson took the stage in a beautiful tribute to Lionel Richie! Let’s not leave out that he also joined in and got everyone in the audience up on their feet. No one does it like M. Richie!

Little Big Town followed up performing their hit song Girl Crush and proving the world, once again, that they have killer harmonies. They were then followed by Pentatonix and Stevie Wonder who payed tribute to Earth Wind and Fire with a beautiful acapella performance.
They then went on giving out the award for song of the year to none other than Ed Sheeran!!!

The Eagles then slowed things down with an amazing tribute to Glenn Frey only for Tori Kelly and James Bay to pick them back up with the most beautiful versions of James’ Let It Go and Tori’s Hollow. I still don’t have words to describe just how perfect their performance was. I need them to tour together, I would pay millions for that! Millions!

The long awaited Kendrick Lamar then put on a show of his own to bring a little bit of fire to the award show. He was followed by Miguel who gave out the award for best rock performance to Alabama Shakes!

Adele, the one everyone was waiting for, then took the stage to perform All I Ask a song she co-wrote with Bruno Mars. Even some minor sound difficulties couldn’t hold her back, she was as strong as ever!

Justin Bieber, the one I  was waiting for, then light up the whole entire damn place with an acoustic version of his hit single Love Yourself followed by a crazy performance of the song that got Justin his first ever Grammy Where Are You Now with Skrillex and Diplo.

Maghan Trainor then won the award for best new artist setting the stage for Lady Gaga to perform a touching tribute to David Bowie. She did it the Gaga way and I don’t think anyone could’ve asked for more!

In honour of B.B. King, Chris Stapleton and Gary Clarke Jr. also took the stage. They were followed by Alabama Shakes and Hollywood vampires who literally set fire to the stage for their first ever televised performance.

Joey Alexander, this year’s youngest Grammy nominee, then sat centre stage at a beautiful black piano to show the world just how talented he is. The album of the year was then awarded to Taylor Swift making her the first women to win the award twice! Go Taylor!

Mark Ronson and Bruno Mars and took home the Grammy for record of the year with Uptown Funk!

Finally (or not… Did we really want it to end?), Pitbull, Joe Perry and Robin Thick closed the show with an upbeat performance full of confetti!

I hope you had an amazing watching the Grammys and if you didn’t I hope this is enough to make it sound like you did,
FRED
