Sorting out my thoughts before writing a responsive essay on the Grammy Awards. The most important and exciting performances from last night in my opinion. Though I still give credit to Ryan Lewis + Macklemore for what they do without the need of a major label.
Kendrick + Imagine Dragons - Kendrick literally just proved he should’ve won Best Album. Or any of the 7 categories he was nominated in.
Keith Urban + Gary Clark Jr - Gary playing his guitar and killing it on national television. Even Keith could barely handle it.
Sir Paul + Ringo - British Invasion still alive and well.
Billie Joe + Miranda Lambert - Simple tribute to one of the Brothers that made Pop music what it is today. There would’ve been no Simon + Garfunkel, no John + Simon, etc. without them.
Daft Punk, Pharrell, Stevie, Nile - The past, present, and future in good hands.
Carole King + Sara Bareilles - A trailblazing female singer/songwriter of the male music industry along with one of today’s.
