LOS ANGELES, CA – AC/DC rocked the start of the show, but their memory sucks! Apparently it’s been a while for the rock veterans because they couldn’t rock out without the teleprompter.
Kanye West might think he’s the greatest rapper in the world, but he’s also the biggest jerk. He scored at first, poking fun at himself by pretending to storm the stage during Beck’s acceptance speech. Everyone got a good laugh, but Kanye took his score into the land of suck. On E! Network’s after show, Kanye dissed Beck and said the Grammy’s need to recognize real artists. He even said that Beck should have given his award to Beyonce. Real artistry? Yeah, this coming from the guy that married Kim Kardashian.
Rihanna might have killed it on stage with Paul McCartney and Kanye, but she sucked on the red carpet. She showed up in a pink, puffy gown. She looked like a “Wizard of Oz,” good witch reject.
SNL alum Kristen Wiig surprised many when she took the Grammy stage. Who knew she could dance?! Kristen performed alongside Maddie Ziegler to recreate the interpretive dance for Sia’s “Chandelier.” It was definitely a memorable performance.
Also memorable, but maybe for the wrong reason, Pharrell. During his performance of “Happy,” his dancers wore hoodies and raised their hands in unison to protest the recent deaths of unarmed black men at the hands of police. But the serious message in the middle of such a ‘happy’ song didn’t sit well with many. Pharrell, we get it. Good intentions, but just bad timing.
