On Sunday night, Childish Gambino won on Sunday night at 61 Grammys with This is America for Record and Song of the Year and Kacey Musgraves for Album of the Year.
While some big names like Queen Bee and Swift did not even get a foothold in the Staples Center in Los Angeles (the first one saw their album paved with Jay-Z in the big categories) and the latter did not appear last year), there were some Memorable moments from a series of performances, .
From dual piano playing to Motown tributes, these are the best Grammy performances, arranged in order of accolades, showing greatness. But did they reach the pregnant Beyonce level? You should pay attention to this below. (Disclosure: The Grammys aired on CBS, the parent company of CNET.)
. 1 Alicia Keys – Kill me quietly, memorable, use Somebody, Empire State Of Mind and more
She plays two pianos at the same time. She wears a Carmen Sandiego hat. What can not the 61st Grammys host do? Alicia Keys's love of music was radiant and one of the highlights of the show, not to mention her music. When she finally sang her own song New York, it became … unforgettable. Fittingly, she is at the top of this list.
. 2 Janelle Monáe – Make Me Feel
Oh, we feel. Janelle Monáe threw her head around with her women's army in space suits that Michael Jackson would have been proud of. Those blue lights, that purple smoke, this killer song about love – "Let the vagina have a monologue." Thank you good night.
. 3 Camila Cabello, Ricky Martin, J Balvin, Young Bat, Arturo Sandoval – Havana
How do I open the biggest music awards show? Take our heart to Havana. Camila Cabello did just that, with a big dance crew and Young Thug, Ricky Martin, J Balvin and the legendary Arturo Sandoval in the trumpet solo playing their hit. Check out the epic stage set with massive, colorful apartment units that must become part of a Rear Window musical.
. 4 Lady Gaga, Mark Ronson – Shallow
Experimental dance steps to save. Gaga showed us how to make happy in this modern world with Shallow, the song introduced in the Oscar-nominated A Star, and her Best Pop won duo / group performance at this year's Grammys. Her talent is deeply rooted and her rock star status was evident on stage, which she shared with equally sincere British DJ Mark Ronson.
5 Cardi B – Money
Yes, a girl on the piano who has gone before Cardi B and whose name everybody wants to know now. That looks directly into the camera. Chills. The Grammy-winning Cardi B (for the best rap album) – the actual main act – tore a purple-padded stage from an underground jazz club. Then. Forever. Take our money!
. 6 Brandi Carlile – The Joke
In contrast to the dazzling glare, Brandi Carlile went deeper and brought all the compassion with a song about the fake that is out there. The most nominated woman at the 61st Grammys delivered head-shaking. Also Post Malone was approved . Bow down.
. 7 Dolly Parton, Kacey Musgraves, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus and more – Dolly Parton Tribute
This will be props easy for Miley Cyrus. Miley Cyrus knows her Jolene. We learned that here, as if we did not know it yet. With many other artists and Dolly himself (in red shoes), the Dolly Parton Tributes did not disappoint the Grammys. Easter Egg: See BTS with every word in the audience .
. 8 Dan + Shay – Tequila
"When I, when, when IIIII" – how can I play this in the background when I feel nostalgic? And then this last message from Shay whenever there is heartbreak. Drink a glass for this country music duo, winner of Best Country Duo / Group Performance for their incredible song Tequila.
. 9 St. Vincent, Dua Lipa – Masseduction, respect, a kiss
When Dua Lipa sneaked out of the back of the stage to join St. Vincent, a perfect duo emerged. Apparently you only need matching bobsleigh cuts and black and white outfits. Her interpretation of Aretha Franklin's Respect was a highlight along with the guitar solo of St. Vincent. The two were perfectly in sync, although Dua Lipa, who recently won the Grammy Award for Best New Artist, needed Bobby Pins to hold her dress up.
10th Kacey Musgraves – Rainbow
Listen to these lyrics. Kacey Musgraves, Grammy winner for Best Album of the Year, is simple yet incredibly elegant, filling the Staples Center with her soulful rainbow of country music. "Now everything is in order." Yes that's it.
. 11 Post Malone and Red Hot Chili Peppers – Stay, Rock Star, Dark Necessities
A smoky spotlight illuminated Post Malone, his acoustic guitar and his golden teeth with a gold microphone. It was gold. Add RHCP. More gold.
12th Diana Ross – The Best Years of My Life, Reach and Touch
She turns 75 next month. The Detroit born singer, famous for The Supremes, is one of the most successful Motown singers of all time. Introduced by her grandson, she entered the stage in a redder than red dress. It has brought us the best years of our lives until the end. She could not hold back the tears. How can she be 74? Happy Birthday!
. 13 Travis Scott – Can & # 39; s Say
cue-soulful vibrato chorus. Then you find Travis Scott in a cage – with rambunctured hip-hop guys scrambling up the sides, precariously over Ross's grandson. Scott had probably one of the most impressive stages of the night – which he gave up crowd surfing.
fourteenth Shawn Mendes, Miley Cyrus – In My Blood
Not only Shawn Mendes at the piano, Shawn Mendes at the piano, whose cracks radiate golden light. With Miley Cyrus, an accompaniment orchestra and a rainstorm of gold, this is more than a party in the US.
15th THEIR. – Hard Place
Sparkling Disco Ball Suit, Cool Clear Guitar and John Lennon Round Sunglasses – Never Change, H.E.R. Everything revealed for R & B presented, including guitar solo.
sixteenth Jennifer Lopez, Smokey Robinson – dancing on the street, please Mr. Postman, I want money, war (what good) and more
What an entrance. J.Lo rose through the floor for her Motown tribute (considered controversial by some) and made a moment by getting everyone to sing My Girl. With a cameo from Alicia Keys, Lopez was unshakeable.
17th Chloe x Halle – Where is the love?
Paying homage to Donny Hathaway, the Internet stars added Grammy to their biography alongside Beyonce's opening act. And they did not disappoint with their unique duet style.
Correction, February 11 at 1:20 pm. PT: Corrects the spelling of Shawn Mendes name and that Alicia Keys sang "Empire State of Mind."
