Highlights / Everyones talking about:

When Taylor Swift called out Kanye West at the Grammys, it was one self-obsessed PR genius against another

Taylor Swift addressing a misogynistic lyric written about her by Kanye West at the Grammys

Alluding to the song ‘Famous’ on West’s new album that features the crude line “I feel like me and Taylor might still have sex/ Why? I made that bitch famous”, in her acceptance speech for best album, Taylor fought back.

“There are going to be people along the way who will try to undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishments or your fame,” she told an audience that included several members of her internationally recognised #girlsquad. “But… some day when you get where you’re going, you’ll look around and you will know that it was you and the people who love you who put you there and that will be the greatest feeling in the world.”

As well as delivering the rousing speech, dedicated “to all the young women out there”, Swift also became the first woman to win Album of the Year at the Grammys twice, took home awards for Best Pop Vocal Album and Best Music Video for Bad Bloo” (in which the entirety of aforementioned #girlsquad also features) and opened the 58th annual ceremony with a life performance of Out of the Woods.

But of course, none of those achievements matter because they’ve all been overshadowed by praise for Swift’s bold response to the big bad Yeezy.

Gaga’s Tribute to David Bowie

One of the night’s most-anticipated performances, Gaga stitched together a medley of Bowie classics in honor of the Starman, helped by musical director and Chic leader Nile Rodgers. Some critics thought the performance kind of campy, but it was tighter and more focused than an earlier tribute to Lionel Richie that involved multiple artists and was saved mostly by Richie himself taking the stage. The choice of Lady Gaga was fitting: Along with Prince, Marilyn Manson and many others, Gaga owes a huge debt to Bowie.

I have mixed feelings about this.. but it was very arty.

Adele’s performance was … a little off.

Adele’s singing is usually a highlight, but her performance Monday night — she did the song “All I Ask” — was uncharacteristically poor, marred by sound issues that had her off-key. At one point she seemed to be yelling, suggesting she couldn’t hear herself. Once the show was over, she went on Twitter to explain: “The piano mics fell on to the piano strings, that’s what the guitar sound was. It made it sound out of tune. Sh*t happens.” The Recording Academy’s president Neil Portnow also noted the glitch after the show.

 

 

Kendrick Lamar delivered the night’s show-stopper.

 

Lamar wowed the Grammys audience with a fiery rendition of his songs “The Blacker the Berry” and “Alright.” Moments before, he had lost the award for best song to Sheeran, yet his performance was arguably the most intense moment of the night. Hip-hop fans likely will see Lamar’s losses to Swift and Sheeran as symptomatic of the award show’s under-appreciation of rap. The Grammys have made strides in developing a more diverse voting bloc, but it remains relatively old, white and male. The Grammys didn’t even hand out a best rap album award until 1996. Lamar himself was famously snubbed in 2014, when he lost Best Rap Album for his critically-acclaimed “good kid, m.A.A.d city” to Macklemore & Ryan Lewis.

 

 

Everyone loved having the Broadway cast of “Hamilton” on the show.

Sunset Strip super-group Hollywood Vampires brought out the guitars to celebrate the late Lemmy Kilmister.

 

Justin Bieber had a great night

Not only did the Biebs win his first-ever Grammy (for best dance recording on Skrillex and Diplo’s “Where Are U Now”), but he also got to perform two songs. He stripped it down, figuratively this time, with an acoustic guitar version of his current hit “Love Yourself.”

It seems the Grammy Awards got a bit confused about who Ed Sheeran’s parents were.

Ed Sheeran

During his acceptance speech for song of the year at the show in LA, Ed thanked his mum and dad for their support over the years.

He said: “They have flown over the past four years to come to the Grammys and every time they go, ‘Maybe next year.'”

At this point a cameraman cut to a proud Mr and Mrs Sheeran clapping – except it wasn’t actually his parents.
