The 55th Annual Grammy Awards were held this past Sunday and much was discussed from Jennifer Lopez’s eye-popping gown, Justin Timberlake’s return, and the impressive Frank Ocean performance giving a nod to Tom Hank’s “Forest Gump” the night involved Latinos dominating the stage.
Singer Miguel graced the stage with a pulsating performance of his chart-topping hit, “Adorn” with help from rapper Wiz Khalifa. Miguel began the performance at a keyboard but soon danced his way over to the red neon illuminated stage. Miguel and Khalifa rocked the stage while donning twin retro black-and-white blazers.
The “Kaleidoscope Dream” impressed audience members with an amazing performance, and even left Kelly Clarkson bemused who while accepting her award shouted out, “Miguel, I don’t know who the hell you are, but we’ve got to record something together!”
Later on as the show progress, Bruno Mars took the stage and was joined by singing superstar Sting who accompanied the young singer in rocking out his latest hit “Locked Out of Heaven” and in a rendition of “Walking on the Moon.” After the opening performance, Mars was then joined on stage by Rihanna and Bob Marley’s sons Ziggy and Damien who joined him in a tribute to the reggae singer in singing “Could You Be Loved.” The tribute had everyone in the audience dancing including Taylor Swift and Jay-Z himself.
In a night that honored music’s finest and contained some electrifying performances, Colombian singer Juanes sang a beautiful and bilingual cover of Elton John’s greatest hit “Your Song.” Prior to his performance, Juanes took home the grammy for Best Latin Pop Album, Rock, or Urban Album for his “MTV Unplugged Deluxe Edition” album. Juanes thanked his home country and all his fans around the world.
The Grammys may be over, for now, but they sure left people still talking about the ceremony that left many rocking.
