As portrayed on the official MusicTalker Twitter page, Sunday night brought the annual Grammy’s Awards Ceremony to national television.
The amount of live performances seemed to overpower the number of actual awards presented at the ceremony. Of course, CBS only showed the most popular awards being presented.
Still, there were a couple exceptionally noteworthy live performances that CBS televised. Maroon 5 and Alicia Keys’ duet was entertaining, but was not the best of the night, by any means. The highlight of their “set” was Keys’ song, “Girl On Fire,” but only once Maroon 5 joined in for musical back-up.
The Bob Marley tribute performance was arguably the greatest moment of the night. Bruno Mars kicked it off with his song, “Locked Out of Heaven,” which sounds like a song the Police could have written. Heating up the room with good vibes, Sting stepped out on stage and started singing this Police-like song with Mars. The performance continued to better itself with Rihanna and Ziggy Marley joining in on a couple of other songs. If that doesn’t seem exciting enough, Damian Marley jumped in, too. This all-star tribute performance brought a big party to the Grammy’s, if only for a few minutes.
Another highlight of the evening was Kelly Clarkson’s acceptance speech for “Best Pop Vocal Album.”
