2018 Grammys Highlights ►► https://youtu.be/nRUrsaozqYM
Best & Worst Dressed 2018 Grammys ►► https://youtu.be/melV2fR6-T0
Hundreds of music’s biggest names came together in New York City’s prestigious Madison Square Garden arena tonight for the 2018 Grammy Awards, but let’s be real, here – you can’t exactly kick off the SIXTIETH Grammys NOR a list of the best moments in a mediocre fashion, so leave it to Kendrick freaking Lamar to get the people on their feet.
He opened the show tonight with a show-stopping performance that we just had to give mention to. Performing in what might’ve been one of the most powerful performances of the night, Kendrick rapped alongside U2’s Bono and The Edge, as well as comedian Dave Chapelle.
They stood in front of an American flag backdrop surrounded by an entire military of army-clad dancers while Kendrick went through multiple hits from his album DAMN and I’m not kidding when I say this performance seriously set the tone for the entire night.
Switching gears to an entirely different type of moment, but equally as important, in my opinion, Lorde, who was up for album of the year tonight, pulled a full-on Rihanna-circa the 2017 Grammys and was seen unapologetically holding a flask – but not just any flask: A flask that matched her ensemble.
So maybe she was celebrating her prestigious Grammy nom, but really though, it’s the Grammys – there’s really no further explanation needed. But what could be better than attending the Grammy Awards? Attending the Grammy Awards whilst playing with puppies. I kid you not, that was a thing that actually happened tonight. Grammy host James Corden announced that he’d be giving out “consolation puppies” for all the losers of tonight’s show.
UM HI JAMES, I think I speak for all of the general public when I say that we’d much rather score ourselves an adorable puppy over a trophy that people only work their entire lives to win… ok, totally kidding. Kinda.
But, you guys, NO award show would be complete without a political punchline to ease the pain of all that’s happening around us… While presenting the award for best comedy album, The Daily Show’s Trevor Noah followed up Bruno Mars and Cardi B’s performance with a compliment that also acted as a major diss…
Annnnd moving on to one of the night’s most noteworthy mentions, many artists once again took time to shed light on the Time’s Up movement, including Janelle Monae, who delivered a powerful speech just moments before introducing Kesha to the stage to sing her power ballad “Praying.”
She also went onto say that, “We are also daughters, wives, sisters, mothers and human beings. We come in peace, but we mean business. And to those who would dare try to silence us, we offer two words: ‘Time’s up.’ We say ‘Time’s up’ for pay inequality; time’s up for discrimination; time’s up for harassment of any kind. And time’s up for the abuse of power – because, you see, it’s not just going on in Hollywood; it’s not just going on in Washington. It’s right here in our industry, as well.” Soooo Janelle for prez, 2020, yes?
