All About the Grammy’s Weekend Recap

All About the Grammy’s Weekend Recap

 By: Lisa Cardoso

 

This Weekend Recap is all about the 59th Grammy’s Music Awards! Hip New Jersey, was loving every minute of it! Queen Bey’s performance had us glued to the TV, Adele’s re-do of “Fast love” had us confused and Chance the Rapper made us proud!
Adele had a tough start to the 59th Grammy Awards by singing off key to the George Michaels tribute. When she began to sing she fell a little flat causing her to stop the song and start over. There are many different opinions on this but us at Hip New Jersey think she did the right thing.

Starting over and not allowing the George Michael tribute to be imperfect shows a great deal of respect to him. Adele is an all around respectful person. Winning three of the top awards last night and being the first time an artist has won all three (record of the year, song of the year, and album of the year) she took her acceptance speech and honored her close competitor Beyoncé. Although her start may have been a little rocky, she was the shining star of the Grammy’s taking home five awards!

 

Another artist to congratulate and recognize is Chance the Rapper, taking home three awards last night (best new artist, best rap album and best rap performance). A win that goes down in history because Chance is the only artist to win a Grammy without selling physical copies of his music. Chance has remained unsigned and only drops his new music via live streaming allowing audiences of all means able to listen to his music. Congratulations Chance the Rapper and thank you for remaining humble and giving!

 

Now, we haven’t forgotten about Queen Bey! Beyonce´s performance last night was a movement as she wore a Peter Dundas golden gown. Fans are saying it was a religious experience and are in awe of her beauty. Starting out with her mother introducing her and her daughter sitting by her side, captured the essence of how important her family is.

Carrying twins can’t stop this proud mama from getting on stage and completely kill it! Her pregnancy glow radiated through the screen and touched all of her fans personally. The golden gown and the large gold head piece illuminated her already golden heart. Beyoncé set the bar for all pregnant women out there.

Beyoncé was nominated for nine different awards, although she didn’t win all of them beyonce was the highlight of the Grammy’s. Adele accepting her highest award still turned the spotlight right back on to Beyoncé.

A few other highlights we wanted to mention:

-Katy Perry’s performance of her song “Chained to the Rhythm” got a little political starting with the well known Hillary Clinton pantsuit and ended standing in front of the constitution yelling “No Hate!”

-Twenty-one pilots accepted their award in their underwear? Although fashion is a huge part of the Grammy’s Twenty-one pilots decided to shed their bottoms and walk out on stage. Before the duo became famous they watched the award show in their underwear, it only seemed fit to continue their tradition and accept their award in the same suit.

-Bruno Mars performed (and dressed like) Prince’s “Let’s Go Crazy” and nailed it.

-Even though there was technical difficulties Lady Gaga’s performance with Metallica. Metallica’s “Hardwired” was nominated for Best Rock Song, but fell short to David Bowies “Blackstar”
