Music is our shared global language, said Alicia Keys as she opened the 61st Grammy Awards. No truer words have ever been spoken; don’t you think so, too? I think we can all safely say that while our musical tastes may vary, that we all love music.
Anyway, did you watch the show, guys? If so, tell us in the comments section below what your favorite parts were. From K-pop group BTS, Dolly Parton, to Lady Gaga who spoke about mental health, here are ours:
- Alicia Keys, Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, Jada Pinkett Smith, and Michelle Obama opened the 61st GRAMMY Awards. The audience went wild when it was Michelle’s time to speak.
- Pansexual singer and actress Janelle Monáe wowed the audience, the netizens, and Lady Gaga with her performance at the 61st Grammy Awards. She performed her Dirty Computer track “Make Me Feel” as well as some parts of the aforementioned album’s songs like “Django Jane” and “Pynk.”
Janelle Monáe received two Grammy nominations for the Album of the Year (Dirty Computer) and the Best Music Video (“PYNK”) category. Album of the Year award went to Kacey Musgraves’ “Golden Hour” while the Best Music Video went to Childish Gambino’s “This Is America.”
