Kinfolk the Grammys came on tonight. Did y’all watch? I did, and I am here to give you my two cents.
Adele opened the show with “Hello”, and they didn’t f*ck up her sound this year. She gave a solid performance.
James Cordon’s opening was cheesy. I would have much rather him done a Carpool Karaoke with an artist he hasn’t featured, but anything is better than James Todd AKA LL Cool J(he had a run)
The best performance of the night goes to Beyoncé the image below pretty much sums it up way better than I ever could:
I just have one questions for anyone who hates on Beyoncé for no GOOD reason, who hurt you? I just wanna know!?! I won’t argue with deaf and blind people, it’s morally wrong. She was the highlight for me. I’m sure many disagree, but I own this domain, so you’ll deal!
Bruno Mars performed “That’s What I Like” which is my jam and gave us a good ole Jodeci-esque harmony at the end! Bruno also channeled Prince perfectly performing “Let’s Go Crazy” in tribute to The Purple One. Morris Day and The Time was just happy to be on the stage. The Grammys got it right with this tribute. Unfortunately they didn’t do so well with The Bee Gees tribute. I love Tori Kelly and and Demi Levato, but was there no one else available for this tribute and are these two going to be out go-to performers for all tributes going forward? The Bee Gees deserved BETTER!
The other best performance of the night goes to Chance The Rapper. He gave a rousing performance featuring Tamala Mann, who decided to channel Ursula from The Little Mermaid for Black History Month and Kirk Franklin. It’s amazing to see this young man’s rise to stardom as an independent artist. I am looking forward to see what he does next.
As I said previously they didn’t f*ck up Adele’s sound at the open, but she didn’t fare so well when she was performing her tribute to George Michael. It was so bad she had to stop and start over. I don’t blame her for starting over. Let’s be clear, only artists of a certain caliber can get away with that and she is one of them!
That’s about all I have for The Grammys, it honestly wasn’t that spectacular of a show. It did have highlights and some lowlights(the sound man needs to be fired) Because I love music I will continue to watch and wade through the muck to see the good!
