Missed the 54th Annual Grammy Awards last night? Fear not dear reader as we have all of the performances from the show posted here, for your viewing pleasure. And let’s face it, the only reason anyone watches the Grammys is for the performances, right?
Fan favorites like Nicki Minaj, Rihanna, Coldplay, Chris Brown and more lit up the stage last night at the awards ceremony and amongst the vast number of performances, there were a number of highlights.
The Rihanna/Coldplay duet was great and Chris Brown, making his first appearance at the Grammys since the “Rihanna beating’ incident, got the crowd going wild with his high energy performance. Minaj was weird as could be during her short set and the always adorable Taylor Swift gave a very crowd pleasing performance which was a nice change of pace from the excessive amount of rap/hip-hop/pop music that was being performed.
Deadmau5 and the Foo Fighters, an unlikely duo, shared the stage for a bit. They started off playing the band’s hit song Rope, which transitioned into Deadmau5‘s Raise Your Weapon, which was then was remixed into a pure dubstep track that wasn’t exactly all that great. Still, an interesting performance nonetheless.
For the older generation, The Beach Boys took the stage for a small reunion and of course, Paul McCartney did his thing as well.
There was also a great Whitney Houston tribute that was put on by the extremely talented Jennifer Hudson. Considering the short amount of time they had to put that together, I think it was very well done.
