8 Memorable Moments From The 2018 Grammy Awards!
It seems that the theme of the 60th edition of the Grammy Awards was “unpredictability”. From intense performances to unlikely duets, the 2018 Grammy Awards were chock full of memorable moments that can only be described as unpredictable. Read below for the highlights…
1 || Miley Cyrus and Elton John
The unlikely pair wowed the audiences with their “Tiny Dancer” performance with Elton John on keyboards and Miley in a breathtaking red Zac Posen gown.
2 || Fire and Fury Skit
The infamous book made an appearance at the awards yesterday when, in a short clip, Hilary Clinton preceded by a few celebrities that included John Legend, Cher, and Snoop Dogg among others, pretended to audition while reading phrases out of the book.
3 || Time’s Up
In support of the Time’s Up movement, singer Kesha delivered a stunningly powerful performance of “Praying” while backed by a chorus of stars in white such as Cindi Lauper and Camila Cabello among others. Janelle Monáe introduced the performance saying “We come in peace, but we mean business”.
4 || John Legend and Tony Bennet
While presenting the first Grammy award of the evening, the two multi-Grammy award winners sang together a few lines from “New York, New York” which was originally performed by Liza Manelli.
5 || JD McCrary….Remember This Name
McCrary stunned the audience as he sounded just like a young Michael Jackson when he sang a few runs of “Terrified” with Childish Gambino towards the end of the song. McCrary will play young Simba in Disney’s remake of the The Lion King out in 2019.
6 || Jay for President!
It seems there is another contender for the presidential position and this time it is Jay Z. Rap singer Lamar, while doing his speech after receiving his second Grammy of the evening and thanking fellow musicians who inspired him; ended his speech by shouting “Jay for President” while pumping his fist in the air!
7 || Tears in Heaven
As a tribute to the shooting that took place on October 1st 2017 at the Las Vegas Harvest Music Festival; an emotional rendition of “Tears in Heaven” was performedby three country music artists who actually sang at the festival. The Brothers Osborne, Maren Morris and Eric Church sang Eric Clapton’s iconic number in memory of the victims.
8 || American Patriotism & Racism
Lamar delivered a dose of criticism of American politics during his performance of “XXX” that was included in his nominated album. While an American flag was waving high, the dancers around Lamar dropped to the ground one after the other to the sound of gun shots. This was interjected by Chappelle’s statement “The only thing more frightening than watching a black man be honest in America is being an honest back man in America”.
