Finally, the wait is over as the 63rd Grammy awards ceremony hits the floor! Grammys are to music what Oscars are to film. Just like the Oscars purport to award superiority in film, Grammys or Grammy Awards award excellence in music. They honor musical artists, compositions, and albums across 84 categories.
The 2021 Grammy Awards was initially going to be held on January 31, 2021. But due to the pandemic and the following restrictions, the 63rd edition of the prestigious ceremony was delayed to March 14.
The venue for the 63rd Grammy Awards in Los Angeles Convention Center and the traditional venue of the awards the Staples Center ll serve as the backdrop. Trevor Noah will be hosting the event.
The 3.5 hours ceremony will have performances from Taylor Swift, BTS, Cardi B, and Billie Eilish. Harry Styles, Bad Bunny, Post Malone, Megan Thee Stallion and Dua Lipa will also hit the stage at the event. Other performers include Chris Martin, John Mayer, Doja Cat, Maren Morris, DaBaby, HAIM, Lil Baby, Brandi Carlile, Roddy Ricch, Brittany Howard, Miranda Lambert, Mickey Guyton, and Black Pumas.
So let’s get started with each performance! First, let’s talk about the opening performances.
Fresh off a big year, Harry Styles opened The Grammys with his hit, “Watermelon Sugar” complete with a live band. After his performance, Billie Eilish was joined by her brother and collaborator Finneas for a moody performance of “All I Ever Wanted.” And to close out the opening performance, Haim performed “The Steps.”
The next performance that stole our hearts was by the Top contenders of the night – Taylor Swift and Dua Lipa, who are contending for top honors including the Album of the year. They took the stage to perform their hit tracks. While Taylor took viewers into her capricious land with her ‘Folklore’ hits, Dua left the audience ‘Levitating’ with her sassy and spirited performances.
Lady of the hour Megan Thee Stallion showed up the heat at the Grammy with her ‘sassy, bougie, ratchet’ performance to ‘Savage’ that won her a Grammy for Best Rap Performance. The star took things up a degree with Cardi B joining her for a jaw-dropping performance to ‘WAP’ that was performed live for the first time since its release last year and we just have one word to say that is THEY KILLED IT!
The next one to take the stage by the storm was Black Pumas as the full boy band performed their psychedelic soul favorite, “Colors,” on the Grammy Awards Sunday, March 14th.
Bruno Mars and Anderson. Paak’s new band Silk Sonic showed up to perform tonight at the 2021 Grammys. They performed their new single “Leave the Door Open” while donning sunglasses and matching brown suits!
The next savage performance was by DaBaby as he performed his song “Rockstar” at the Awards. The track is his second single from his 2020 album “Blame It on Baby.”
Talking about the next performance Mickey Guyton and Miranda Lambert gave a soulful performance at the Grammys.
Miranda Lambert also won a Grammy for the Best Country Album for WILDCARD. Mickey Guyton dazzled viewers with her performance of “Black Like Me” during show.
Miranda Lambert gave a standout performance of her hit song “Bluebird” during the 2021 Grammy Awards.
Maren moris +John Mayer’s performed on the hit number “bones” and it was just mesmerizing with their angelic voice!
And now the next most anticipated performance that we can say was dynamite withing itself was by the popular K-pop band BTS as they brought the house down with their song Dynamite in a virtual event ahead of their performance! Suga, RM, Jin, Jimin, J-Hope, Jungkook and V looked elegant in a suit for the performance. While the seven of them performed energetically in an empty theatre, it was Jungkook’s drummer act that broke the internet.
The next to talk about is when Bad Bunny and Jhay Cortez performed their jaunty Latin pop hit, “Dakini,” at the Grammys, the lead single from Bad Bunny’s third studio album, “El Último Tour Del Mundo,” which was released in 2020 and it was fierce.
Later Post Malone brings a little bit of edge with his moody ‘Hollywood’s Bleeding’
Atlanta hip-hop star Lil Baby delivered a chilling performance of his 2020 protest anthem, “The Bigger Picture,” at this year’s Grammys. The song was nominated for rap song and rap performance. As Lil Baby spit verses in solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement, actors played out harrowing scenes inspired by real life violence against African Americans, as well as the 2020 uprisings that took place in cities across the United States.
And that’s how the phenomenal award ceremony came to its end and it was a banger for sure! Until next time
