Oh my golly gosh! I’m just catching up on the 2014 Grammy performances and did anyone else end up looking like an eye popping + smiley teary emoji after the Macklemore, Ryan Lewis, Mary Lambert, Madonna (scream!) and Queen Latifah Same Love colab? Holy shit that was a great piece of story telling and showmanship. I blogged about the significance of Macklemore and Lewis’ Same Love creation last year; my brother kept finding me crying after listening to the song. It took about 6 months for the song to stop having this effect on me! The message is so important and the delivery and reach just so powerful. In my opinion this group of people really pulled off a great thing at the Grammys. Very very Cool.
The other performance that saw my mouth agape was courtesy of Imagine Dragons and Kendrick Lamar.Who would’ve thought? I loved the energy, musicality and intensity of their performance. The percussion was fantastic and the theatrics spot on.
Notable mention has to go to Lorde, the wee treasure that is doing her thing the way she wants to do it (and winning 2 Grammy’s in the process). Miss Yelich-O’Connor you looked amazing, sang like you meant business and endeared yourself to everyone! Oh, ahhhh, would you tell me more about your lipstick….? Diggin it. Totally want it. Where can I buy it? Also, your hair, I’d love to have a turn one day.
