Even without Beyonce or, the 2019 Grammys appeared.
On Sunday night, at the 61st Grammy Awards, Childish Gambino won big with This is America for Record and Song of the Year, and Kasey Musgraves for Album of the Year.
While some big names like Queen Bee and Swift did not even step on the Staples Center in Los Angeles (the first saw that their album with Jay-Z was rejected in the big categories and the last one did not appear last year), there were some memorable moments of a, well, large range of actions.
From double piano performance to Motown tributes, these are the best Grammy performances ranked in order of prizes. But did they reach pregnant Beyonce's greatness levels? That's what you should be looking for next. (Disclosure: the Grammys were aired on CBS, the parent company of CNET).
1. Alicia Keys: Killing me softly, unforgettable, using someone, New York and more
She plays two pianos at the same time. She is wearing a Carmen San Diego hat. What can not the host of the 61 Grammy do? Alicia Keys' love for music was radiant and one of the highlights of the show, not to mention her own music. When he finally sang his own song, New York, he became … unforgettable. Finding that she does the top of this list.
2. Janelle Monáe – Make me feel
Oh we feel. Janelle Monáe made her way to the top of the list with her army of women in spacesuits that Michael Jackson would have been proud of. Those blue lights, that purple smoke, that killer song that deals with love: "Let the vagina have a monologue". Thanks good night.
3. Camila Cabello, Ricky Martin, J Balvin, young bully, Arturo Sandoval – Havana
How to open the biggest musical awards show? Take our hearts to Havana. Camila Cabello did just that, with a great dance team and Young Thug, Ricky Martin, J Balvin and the legendary Arturo Sandoval in his solo trumpet playing his hit song. Take a look at the epic stage design that involves colorful apartment units that must become part of a Rear Window musical.
4. Lady Gaga, Mark Ronson – Shallow
Experimental dance moves to spare, Gaga showed us how to be happy in this modern world with Shallow, the song that appeared in the Oscar-nominated A Star is Born, and that won her best duo / pop group performance at the Grammy Awards. this year. His talent is deep and his status as a rock star was evident on stage, which he shared with British DJ Mark Ronson.
5. Cardi B – Money
Yes, piano girl who preceded Cardi B and whose name everyone wants to know now. That look directly at the camera. Cold. The Grammy winner Cardi B (for the Best Rap Album), the main act, broke a stage quilted with purple from an underground jazz club. So. Forever. Take our money!
6. Brandi Carlile – The joke
In contrast to the dazzling dazzle, Brandi Carlile was more discreet, bringing all the compassion with a song about the misrepresentations there are. The woman most nominated in the 61st Grammys delivered kindness of head. Even post malone approved. Make a reverence.
7. Dolly Parton, Kasey Musgraves, Katy Perry, Miley Cyrus and more – tribute to Dolly Parton
This receives support simply for Miley Cyrus. Miley Cyrus meets Jolene. That is what we have learned here, as if we did not already know. With a lot of other artists, along with Dolly herself (in red shoes), the tribute to the Grammy Dolly Parton did not disappoint. Easter egg: See BTS jumping along with every word in the audience.
8. Dan + Shay – Tequila
"When I, when I, when IIIII", how can I make it touch that in the background when I feel nostalgic? And then that last note from Shay when that involves a lack of love. Drink a drink for this country music duo, winners of the Best Country Duo / Group Performance for their incredible song Tequila.
9. San Vicente, Dua Lipa – Masseduction, Respect, A Kiss
When Dua Lipa left the back of the stage to join San Vicente at the front, it became a perfect duo. Apparently, all you need is to combine bob cuts and black and white suits. Her performance of Aretha Franklin's Respect was a highlight, along with the guitar solo of St. Vincent. The two were perfectly synchronized, even if Dua Lipa, Grammy winner recently awarded Best New Artist, needed pins to hold her dress.
10. Kasey Musgraves – Rainbow
Listen to these lyrics. Simple but incredibly elegant, Kasey Musgraves, winner of the Grammy for Best Album of the Year, filled the Staples Center with his rainbow of country music. "Everything is well now". Yes it is.
11. Post Malone and Red Hot Chili Peppers – Stay, Rockstar, Dark Necessities
A focus of smoke ignited Post Malone, his acoustic guitar and his gold teeth with a matching gold microphone. It was gold Add RHCP. More gold
12. Diana Ross – The best years of my life, raise your hand and touch
She turns 75 next month. The singer born in Detroit famous for The Supremes is one of the most successful Motown singers of all time. Presented by her grandson, she burst onto the stage in a dress that is redder than red. Until the end, it has given us the best years of our lives. She could not contain the tears. Besides, how can she be 74? Happy Birthday!
13. Travis Scott – I can not say
Vibrating Cue Vibrato Choir. Then tell Travis Scott in a cage, with hip hop men climbing up the sides, especially over Ross's grandson. It could be said that Scott had one of the most impressive stages of the night, which he left for crowd surfing.
14. Shaun Mendes, Miley Cyrus – In my blood
Not only Shaun Mendes on the piano, Shaun Mendes on a piano with cracks that emit golden light. With Miley Cyrus, an accompaniment orchestra and a golden rain shower, it's more than a party in the United States.
15. H.E.R. – Hard Place
Bright disco ball suit, cool and clear guitar and round sunglasses by John Lennon: never change, H.E.R. With Everything Revealed represented for R & B, guitar only included.
16. Jennifer Lopez, Smokey Robinson – Dancing on the street, please, Mr. Postman, Money, that's what I want, War (What's the use) and more
What entrance. J.Lo got up on the floor for his tribute to Motown (considered controversial by some) and did a moment to have everyone sing My Girl. With a cameo by Alicia Keys, Lopez was imperturbable.
17. Chloe x Halle – Where is the love?
With a tribute to Donny Hathaway, Internet stars added Grammy performance to their CV, along with Beyonce's opening act. And they did not disappoint with their unique unique duo style.
