THE GRAMMYS RECAP: WINNERS, PERFORMERS AND MORE

Grammys Rihanna2

The 55th Annual Grammy Awards took place last night at the Staples Center in Los Angles.  The most famous celebrities came out to celebrate music’s biggest night.  From Beyonce and Ellen Degeneres introducing Justin Timberlake to Rihanna and Bruno Mars paying tribute to Bob Marley, the show was full of excitement and surprises.

There were so many highlights, I don’t know where to start.  Miguel and Wiz Khalifa performed a short rendition of Miguel’s hit “Adorn.”  Wiz Khalifa added a few versus to the song for the show and they sounded great together.  Justin Timberlake performed on the Grammys stage for the first time in four years after being introduced by Ellen Degeneres and Beyonce.  He began his performance singing “Suit & Tie” and the best part had to be Jay-Z coming from his seat to the stage to join JT for his verse in the song.  JT then sang his new single “Pusher Lover Girl.”

Another highlight of the night was Rihanna and Bruno Mars paying tribute to Bob Marley.  The two of them were joined on stage by Sting and Damien and Ziggy Marley.  Rihanna performed solo earlier in the show and sang her new single “Stay.”  It was a very intimate performance, so I couldn’t help but think she was singing to her beau Chris Brown who was watching in the audience.  Frank Ocean performed his track “Forrest Gump” and Alicia Keys, who played the drums and not a piano, sang her hit “Girl on Fire” with Adam Levine from Maroom 5.
