On Sunday evening they saw 61. Grammy Awards, Childish Gambino win big with This is America for both Record and Song of the Year, and Kasey Musgraves for this year's album.
While a few big names like Queen Bee and Swift did not even stand in the Staples Center in Los Angeles (the former saw her album with Jay-Z stumbling in the big categories and the latter didn't show up last year either) were some memorable moments from a successful reach.
From dual piano to Motown tribute, these are the best Grammy performances ranked in order of prizes showing greatness. But did they reach pregnant Beyonce levels of grandeur? This is what you should look for below. (Disclosure: Grammys posted on CBS, parent company of CNET.)
first Alicia Keys – kills me softly, unforgettable, uses someone, New York and more
She plays two pianos at once. She has a Carmen San Diego hat. What can not host the 61. Grammys do? Alicia Keys & # 39; love of music was brilliant and one of the highlights of the show, not to mention her music herself. When she finally sang her own song, New York, it was … unforgettable. Make sure she tops this list.
2nd Janelle Monáe – Make me feel
Oh, we feel. Janelle Monáe head-bopped her way to the top of this list with her army of women in space-themed suits Michael Jackson would have been proud of. The blue light, the purple smoke it kills song that is about love – "Let the vagina have a monologue." Thank you goodnight.
3rd Camila Cabello, Ricky Martin, J Balvin, Young Thug, Arturo Sandoval – Havana
How do you open the biggest music prize broadcast? Take our hearts to Havana. Camila Cabello did just that with a big dancer and Young Thug, Ricky Martin, J Balvin and the legendary Arturo Sandoval on trumpet solo, who played her hit song. Check out the epic scene design that involves massive colorful apartment components that must be part of a music bag in the back window.
4th Lady Gaga, Mark Ronson – Shallow
Experimental dance moves to save, Gaga showed us how to be happy in this modern world with Shallow, the song presented in the Oscar-nominated A Star, is Born, and won her best pop duo / group performance at this year's Grammys. Her talent runs deep, and her rock star status was clearly on the scene, which she shared with just British DJ Mark Ronson.
5th Cardi B – Money
Yes girl on the piano who preceded Cardi B and whose name everyone wants to know now. It looks straight into the camera. Goosebumps. Grammy-winning Cardi B (for Best Rap Album) – the main act – revamped a scene upholstered in purple straight out of an underground jazz club. Then. Forever. Take our money!
6th Brandi Carlile – The Joke
Unlike the razzle glare, Brandi Carlile went with a lower key, giving all that compassion to a song about the erroneous out there. The most nominated woman at the 61. Grammy's delivered shaking goodness. Even Post Malone approved . Take a bow.
7th Dolly Parton, Kasey Musgraves, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus and much more – Dolly Parton tribute
This gets props simply to Miley Cyrus. Miley Cyrus knows her Jolene. That's what we've learned here, as if we didn't already know it. With a number of other artists, along with Dolly himself (in red shoes), Grammys & # 39; Dolly Parton did not disappoint. Easter eggs: See BTS, which claps with with every word in the audience.
8 thereof. Dan + Shay – Tequila
"When I, when I, when IIIII" – how do I get to play in the background when I feel nostalgic? And then the last note from Shay when it involves heartache. Drink a glass for this country music duo, winners of Best Country Duo / Group Performance for their incredible song Tequila.
ninth St. Vincent, Dua Lipa – Mass Training, Respect, One Kiss
When Dua Lipa crawled out of the stage hill to join St. Vincent in front, was a perfect duo made. Matching bob carvings and black and white outfits are all you need, apparently. Their interpretation of Aretha Franklin's Respect was a highlight along with St. Vincent's guitar solo. The two were perfectly synchronized, although Dua Lipa, the newly awarded Grammy winner for Best New Artist, needed bobby pins to keep her dress up.
10th Kasey Musgraves – Rainbow
Listen to these lyrics. Simple but incredibly elegant, Kasey Musgraves, Grammy winner of this year's best album, filled the Staples Center with his soulful rainbow of country music. "Everything is right now." Yes it is.
eleventh Post Malone and Red Hot Chili Peppers – Stay, Rockstar, Dark Necessities
A smoker spotlight informed Post Malone, his acoustic guitar and his gold teeth with gold micro to match. It was gold. Add RHCP. More gold.
12th Diana Ross – The best years in my life, get out and touch
She will be 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 burst on stage in a roots-end-red dress. Eventually she has given us the best years in our lives. She couldn't hold back the tears. Also, how can she be 74? Happy Birthday!
thirteenth Travis Scott – Can't Say
Cue soulful vibrato chorus. So cue Travis Scott in a cage – with rambunctious hip hop guys climbing the sides, unsure of Ross & grandson. Scott probably had one of the most impressive stages of the night – which he drew to the crowd surf.
fourteenth Shaun Mendes, Miley Cyrus – In my blood
Not only Shaun Mendes on piano, Shaun Mendes on a piano with cracks emitting golden light. With Miley Cyrus, a backing orchestra and a golden rain shower, it's more than a party in the US.
15th HER. – Hard place
Sparkly disco dress suit, cooler guitar and John Lennon round sunnies – never switch, H.E.R. Having Everything Revealed represented by R&B, included guitar solo.
16th Jennifer Lopez, Smokey Robinson – Dancing in the Street, please. Postman, Money That 's What I Want, War (What's Good For) and More
What an entry. J. stepped up the floor of her Motown tribute (considered controversial by some) and made a moment by getting everyone to sing my girl. With an Alicia Keys cameo, Lopez was unflappable.
17th Chloe x Halle – Where's the love?
With a tribute to Donny Hathaway, the Internet added the stars Grammy achievements to their resume along with Beyonce's opening act. And they did not disappoint with their unique unique duet style.
