The Grammy’s is a night when music celebrates and pays homage to current and past musical acts. Throughout the night, celebrities at the Grammys dressed up in their finest garbs and danced the night away and yet the whole show was addressing today’s issues. Leading to emotions flowing, when two tributes heartfelt from the start were felt from the start.
You’re reminded of this at the very beginning of the show, when Music artist, Lizzo dedicated her song Cuz I love you to basketball star, Kobe Bryant. Kobe Bryant along with his daughter and 8 others perished in a helicopter crash. In fact, Lizzo sung another song titled The Truth Hurts. Despite the tears and tributes observed from Lizzo fans that night, they were delighted to find out that Lizzo won Best Pop Solo Performance for “Truth Hurts” Lizzo has won Best Pop Solo Performance for “Truth Hurts” at the 62nd GRAMMY Awards. Lizzo dazzled with her voice, but also with her fashion channeling old Hollywood. While Lizzo won, many other artists did just as well, such as the award winner for record of the year, Album of the year, song of the year Best new artist and Best pop vocal album, all were swept by emo singer, Billie Eilish. In fact, she became the youngest artist to ever be nominated, since Christopher cross. Eilish was 17 when she was nominated. She beat out such artists like Lizzo, Ariana Grande and Khalid.
The greatest performance of the night was from Little Nas X who dazzled in his get-up and his performance with Billy Ray Cyrus for his Best Pop Duo song ́ ‘ Old Town Road”.
As for the best R&B album, there was no surprise but to the dream duo, Anderson. Paak and Andre 3000 for the song titled “ Come Home”.
The night was a winning night, but it got real after the host of the telecast, Alicia Keys and Boys to Men sung the song “ It’s So Hard To Say Goodbye to Yesterday” dedicating it to basketball legend, Bryant, making it even hard to transmit the real happy emotions that were felt that night for all their winnings.
It was in everyone’s mind, Kobe Bryant, his daughter and 8 others who died in a tragic helicopter crash. Though the whole telecast was dedicated to him, his daughter, and the others that died. It was fitting that the tributes along with the telecast of the Grammy’s were taken place at the Staple Center, the place where Kobe built. The other sad tributes of the night were when Camilla Cabello sang a song to her dad, which is also fitting for the night because of the helicopter tragedy.
Later in the telecast, singer Demi Lavato sang her heart out and showed her true emotions, after surviving what might have been a fatal drug overdose. She had all eyes on her that night during that performance and brought tears to everyone’s eyes.
It is simple but true that all the performances had a great deal of emotion that night.
A night dedicated and reminded of Kobe Bryant, not a musician or musical act but a great athlete, father and husband. RIP Kobe.
