Some of my Thoughts From the 2014 Grammys + Live Performances

The 2014 Grammy’s has come and gone and left me with a few thoughts about the show.

1.  Music lovers tuned in as Beyoncé and Jay-Z opened the show with their hit single, “Drunk in Love.” I wasn’t too impressed with their performance but their love for each other is undeniable.

2. My favorite thing about the Grammy’s was the merge of music. Coupling Kendrick Lamar with Imagine Dragons infused rap with rock. Pianist Lang Lang teamed up with Metallica for the song “One” which made for a soft, yet hard sound to the track. R&B artist, Robin Thicke, paired up with rock and roll band Chicago, and the list goes on.

3. My Favorite Performance:

4. Speaking of Kendrick, there was a lot of fuss about the hip hop artist losing to Macklemore & Ryan Lewis in the Best Rap Album category.  Honestly, I wasn’t surprised because Macklemore’s music is more mainstream. I hear Macklemore on a lot of different radio station formats, while Lamar is mainly in rotation on Urban stations. Even Macklemore said he “robbed” Lamar. Here’s a photo he posted on Instagram after the Awards show.

His caption read, ‘My text to Kendrick after the show. He deserved best rap album. … I’m honored and completely blown away to win anything much less 4 Grammys. But in that category, he should have won.’

5. I did like the message of equality in Macklemore’s “Same Love” performance, though. Peep out the powerful performance below.

6. So is Robin Thicke ever going to earn an award for Blurred Lines?
