One of the best performances at last night’s 56th Annual Grammy Awards was the mash-up pairing of Imagine Dragons and Kendrick Lamar. Their performance was loud, bright and perfectly put together.
Also, it provided us with one of my favorite moments from the Grammys. Taylor Swift was shown rocking out to the performance and was either having a seizure or just putting her hands in the a-urrr and waving them like she just didn’t k-urrr. Either way, she definitely provided the whitest part of the night to us.
I am sure after seeing Kendrick Lamar perform, the members of Recording Academy probably all gave themselves a palm to forehead smack because of Macklemore and Ryan Lewis besting Lamar in Best New Artist, Best Rap Performance and Best Rap Album. All three a travesty, in my honest opinion.
Other great performances were the opening act featuring Beyonce and Jay-Z, Keith Urban and Gary Clark Jr., Carole King with my crush Sara Bareilles, and John Legend. I am sure there were more, but those are the performances that stand out in my mind the morning after.
Here’s a complete list of all the winners from the 2014 Grammys.
