7 EPIC Grammy Performances That Deserve A Grammy Of Their OwnPosted on January 9, 2018
The 60th Grammy Awards ceremony may still be a few weeks away but the event is already shaping up to be one of the best in years. Childish Gambino and Lady Gaga are among the first performers announced for the show with more to be added soon. While we wait for more news, here’s a few of our favourite performances from Grammys past to get you hyped.
Check it out:
Imagine Dragons and Kendrick Lamar – “Radioactive/Maad City (Medley)”
With a combined nine Grammy nominations this year, Imagine Dragons and Kendrick Lamar have much to look forward to in 2018. And if it’s anything like their Grammy performance from three years ago, we’re in for a wild time.
Eminem with Rihanna and Dr. Dre – “Love The Way You Lie”
No one can deny, Eminem is BACK. With recent hits ‘River’ and ‘Walk on Water’, we can’t get enough. But let’s not forget some of his biggest songs from the past. This one in particular features a dream team collaboration with pop QUEEN Rihanna and hip-hop legend Dr. Dre.
Taylor Swift – “All Too Well”
This performance from T. Swift is significant for many reasons. It was that same night that Taylor returned home, ate a lot of In N Out burger, and decided her next record would be a pop record named ‘1989’. The rest is history.
Lady Gaga – “Born This Way”
After wearing a meat dress that year to the VMAs, who would’ve thought Lady Gaga could out-do herself? Well she came to prove everyone wrong with a jaw dropping ‘egg’ arrival on the Grammys red carpet just before the debut performance of her LGBTQ+ anthem Born This Way!
Demi Lovato – “Hello” (Lionel Ritchie Tribute)
2016 was a year of firsts for Demi; not only did she perform at the Grammys for the very first time but she also received her first Grammy nomination! You know it’s good when the iconic Lionel Ritchie gives his stamp of approval.
Lorde – “Royals”
Taking the stage with a stripped-down version of her debut hit, Lorde allows her true talent to shine shortly before accepting the award for Song of the Year in 2014. Fun fact: Lorde is the youngest recipient of that award and one of the youngest artists to ever win a Grammy in any category! Impressive.
Drake with Eminem and Lil Wayne – “Forever”
Despite thirty-five nominations and having named a song named after them, Drake has only performed at the Grammys once. But once is more than enough when you have the likes of Eminem AND Lil Wayne joining you on stage. No doubt, this performance will be remembered forever.
