All the highlights from the 64th Grammy Awards

It was so, but because the Ukrainian president appeared in the middle of the show Volodymyr Zelenskywho spoke of Ukrainian musicians in flak jackets and pleaded for support, everything landed in a context that looked like he escaped from last week’s Oscars.

For a moment, the night of music and celebration paused and the focus shifted to the ongoing conquest and plight of the Ukrainian people.

“War – what’s more than music?” Zelensky said. “We defend our freedom. To live. To love. To hear. In our land we fight Russia which brings terrible silence with its bombs. Dead silence. Fill the silence with your music! Fill it today. To tell our story Tell the truth about war.”

Winners

It was a big night for three artists in particular, who walked away with the top four honors that night.

John Baptiste won Album of the Year for We Are, Silk Sonic won Song of the Year for Leave the Door Open, and Olivia Rodrigo came out with Best New Artist.

Doja Cat and SZA also scored an unforgettable win – for both Doja Cat’s emotional response and poorly-timed bathroom break that almost robbed her of her moment. It all worked out, though, for the two new Best Duo/Team Performance winners.

HER, Travis Barker and Lenny Kravitz performed

The aforementioned appearance of Zelensky led to a performance by John Legend, where he sang “Free”, while wearing a blue suit, a visual homage to the country of Ukraine.

He was accompanied on stage by Ukrainian singer Mika Newton, musician Syozana Egedan and poet Lyuba Yakimchuk at this touching moment.

Fu fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins He was honored at the top of the In Memoriam segment which is set on a stunning four-person performance of “Somewhere” from the musical “West Side Story”. Rachel Ziegler (star of the musical’s remake), Ben Platt, Cynthia Erivo and Leslie Odom Jr. together gave the show’s most impressive moments.

Elsewhere, BTS took the stage to take high energy on the song “Butter”. Lil Nas X performed “Industry Baby” with Jack Harlow in front of a giant stone statue of his face – as one does. Billie Eilish brought on heat – and rain – during a performance of “Happiest Ever” which certainly didn’t make the mop crew at the Grammys any happiest (but seemed to please the crowd). (In an extra nice touch, performances are often given by members of behind-the-scenes artist troupes—such as tour managers.)

Battisti, the 11-time nominee of the year, demonstrated his piano skills among many others with a live version of “Freedom” that embodies joy.

HER and Lenny Kravitz — with Travis Barker on drums — also brought down the house with the rocking song “Are You Going to Go My Way.”

What more could you ask for than a Grammy?

Red Carpet

Justin Bieber and Hailey Bieber arrive at the Grammys.
Before the event in the actual show, Prove the red carpet To be a parade of the glow you can only get from the Grammys.

In normal times, the Grammys would have taken place in January or February, several weeks before the Oscars, the usual season finale. (In fact, there hasn’t been an April Grammy since 1965.) But there was something somewhat fitting about the awards season’s most vibrant red carpet crowning this season.

Lil Nas X has shown that pearls are the success maker’s best friend. Justin Bieber wore a suit made for two. J Balvin wore his heart on his head. BTS’ Kim Taehyung, who plays V, wore all paper flowers to the prom on his lapel and made it look good.

In fact, it could be argued that men stole the fashion show this year, but the ladies represented solidly in the trend-setting department. See: Doja Cat’s hair nails and Laverne Cox’s thin eyebrows.

However, the biggest trend of the night was another promise that Noah made at the top of the show – alluding to that else The loudest moment on the show: Everyone hid other people’s names from their mouths. And we were better for it.
