Justin Timberlake brings Old School Hollywood to the Grammys and gives the performance of the night Pic: http://www.popsugar.com
The Grammys are as much about the performances as the awards given out on the night (for the list of last night’s winners, see previous post).
The 55th Annual Grammy Awards were no different, with the likes of Justin Timberlake, Alicia Keys, Rihanna, Mumford and Sons, Ed Sheeran, Elton John, Taylor Swift, Bruno Mars, Ziggy Marley, Maroon 5 and Sting taking to the stage.
The performance of the night has to go to Justin Timberlake (who was joined on stage by Jay Z). There was a lot of pressure on Timberlake, given that he was making his musical come back. What a stage to make his comeback on.
Timberlake did not disappoint. He didn’t only bring sexy back, but he brought back old school Hollywood class, style and entertainment! Timberlake impressed both fans and superstars alike, including, his very proud wife, Jessica Biel.
Taylor Swift kicked off the show with an elaborate performance of We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together (in which she may be have referred to ex Harry Styles when she takes off a British accent?)
Ed Sheeran and Elton John came together to perform Sheeran’s hit song The A-Team
Elton John returned to the stage with Mumford and Sons to perform, in tribute to all the musicians lost in 2012 and the teachers and students at Sandyhook Elementary who were tragically killed and had their “songs ended too soon”.
Bruno Mars, Rihanna, Sting and Ziggy Marley performed a tribute to Bob Marley (In the beginning I wasn’t sure if this was going to work but Rihanna and the Marleys brought it home strongly)
Another much talked about collaboration last night was that between Maroon 5 and Alicia Keys – this was hot!
The Grammys never fail to throw an amazing concert – I’m already looking forward to next years!
I’m Sarina Bellissimo and this is the place I come to indulge in my love of all things entertainment. I can’t remember a time when I wasn’t fascinated by all things Hollywood/showbiz. I blame my parents!
As a child my mum used to force me to watch old Elvis Presley films with her, and both my mum & dad would take my brothers and I to the Drive-In to watch the latest films (this is where my love for ROCKY began!). When not watching movies, I was trying to figure out ways to pull the back off the TV so I could somehow get into it and be a part of all the action on the screen!
This blog isn’t a place that revels in gossip and negativity. It’s a place where entertainment is celebrated. That said, this is a place you can turn to for honesty. Honesty and criticism don’t always mean attacks. I choose to criticise the piece of work but not the person and I acknowledge that just because I don’t like something, it doesn’t mean someone else won’t.
Here you’ll find interviews with some of the biggest names in the world of Entertainment, reviews, breaking news and my very own musings.
