As always, we were super excited about the GRAMMYs this year; it’s an event that we are always looking forward to. This year was nothing short of memorable. Here are some of our favourite moments, revolving mainly around Adele and Beyoncé, and why we can’t stop obsessing.
A Tribe Called Quest referred to Donald Trump as “President Agent Orange,” while Chance The Rapper amazed us by beating Drake for Best Rap Album. But that wasn’t nearly the best part of the night. Not even close.
James Corden hosted the GRAMMYs this year and did an amazing job at it. He gathered Jennifer Lopez, John Legend and Neil Diamond for a little entertainment, inspired by Carpool Karaoke. He started singing “Sweet Caroline” and, eventually, got the whole audience to join in. We couldn’t love him more if we tried.
There was a tribute paid to the Bee Gees, during which Demi Lovato, Little Big Town, Andra Day and Tori Kelly gave impeccable performances.
Bruno Mars honoured Prince by transforming into the musician during a tribute performance. His version of “Let’s Go Crazy”, which he sang while wearing a sequined purple blazer and black eyeliner, got everyone dancing, including Beyoncé and Jay Z.
We are seriously “Drunk in Love” with Beyoncé’s performance; she completely wowed the crowd (no surprise there, obviously). She got up on stage, while pregnant, and showed the world that she is unstoppable, and that she can never disappoint. Beyoncé went home with two awards.
Once again, we are at a loss for words when speaking about Adele. She absolutely stole the show, winning five awards. She kicked off the show with her insanely strong voice and paid a highly emotional tribute to George Michael, singing “Fastlove”; even Rihanna was spotted tearing up! “My queen and my idol is Queen B. I adore you,” Adele said to Beyoncé as she accepted her award – Queen B, of course, was seen tearing up after such a heartwarming statement. Adele can seriously do no wrong!
