I had way too much fun watching the 58th Grammys on Monday night!
From the fashion to the presenter monologues, the show was definitely one to watch. LL Cool J hosted with his LL broach on the lapel of his suit jacket and several pieces of blindingly sparkling rings on his fingers.
Also, is it just me, or did everyone decide to show up with a haircut?! Taylor Swift went à la Anna Wintour, Sam Smith looked so much older with a closer shave, and Adele looked stunning with a shorter ‘do. Even the Lincoln Navigator commercial that showed during the Grammys featured Matthew McConaughey with shorter hair. WHAT IS THIS?!
Anyway, here were the performances that got me off the couch and on my feet throughout the evening.
1. Lionel Richie Tribute Medley, John Legend, Demi Lovato, Tyrese and others
You know you were alive before the new millenium when you get uber excited about hearing “Hello” and “Brick House.” I also really loved the suit Demi Lovato wore for her portion of the performance.
2. “I Can’t Feel My Face” and “In the Night” by The Weeknd
Gotta love seeing this crazy haired man perform!
3. “Love Yourself” and “Where Are U Now” by Justin Bieber
Loved the acoustic version of “Love Yourself.” Not sure how I feel about that cheetah jacket on the Biebs, though.
4. David Bowie Tribute Medley, Lady Gaga
Can we just stop for a second to appreciate how much effort she put into the aesthetics of this performance?! They couldn’t have picked a better person to do this tribute. Also, that robot keyboard is too cool.
5. “El Taxi” by Pitbull
Two words: SOFIA VERGARA. Boy, does Pitbull know how to close a show!
