Two days ago marked the celebration of the 62nd Grammy Awards, perhaps the most celebrated Music Awards. But with it, came the grief and mourning of a legend; Kobe Bryant, the basketball giant that was taken away from us too soon.
Nevertheless, life is for the living. And the Grammy’s still took place.
Here are the five top moments of it:
Billie Eilish winning Four Grammys
Can we just for a moment agree that Billie cuts deep into our souls with her music? And we are not the only ones who thinks that. She seemed to have cut Grammy’s soul too. Four times!
The eighteen-year-old singer snatched: RECORD OF THE YEAR (Bad Guy); ALBUM OF THE YEAR (When we fall asleep, where do we go?), SONG OF THE YEAR (Bad Guy) And BEST NEW ARTIST.
This made her the youngest artist to ever win all the four major categories.
IN HONOUR OF KOBE BRYANT.
Music and sports, specifically Hip Hop and basketball go hand in hand. And it was evident by the much love and tears that marked the 62nd Grammys as they also celebrated Kobe Bryant.
His jersey number, 24, was highlighted in the Staples Centre; the house he built; the house that also hosted this year Grammy’s awards.
Alicia Keys, the Grammy Host; together with Boys II Men also participated in honoring the legend by a beautiful sad song.
ARIANNA GRANDE’S DRESS.
From death to dresses. Arianna likes making fashion her statement, and this year on Grammy’s she seemed to have followed the mantra; Go big or go home. Her dress, a custom Giombatista villa dove grey gown complete with a layered tulle skirt and matching satin opera gloves gave the 7 rings artists a Cinderella kind of look Dreamy yet extra.
DEMI LOVATO’S PERFORMANCE OF ANYONE.
The Lovato fans were eager to witness the performance of their goddess; much more for the fact that this was her first performance in two years.
They expected amazing, but they got god-like.
With Anyone, Demi Lovato digs deep and raw. It is a song she wrote a day before she overdosed. It is more a cry of help than a song, and we hear her.
LIZZO GRABS A GRAMMY.
Lizzo, singer of Truth Hurts and an inspiration to all plus-sized women grabbed the Grammy for the best pop solo performance with Truth Hurts. In her acceptance speech, she recounts her life as she lived in a car, and urges everyone to reach out; reach out for their dreams.
