And The Grammy Goes To…: Everything You Missed At The Grammy Awards 2020

The 62nd Grammy Awards Ceremony took place last night (26/01/20), filled with extravagant outfits, exceptional music and emotional speeches. Here is a lowdown of everything that happened at the 2020 Grammy Awards.

The Red Carpet Outfits:

62nd Annual GRAMMY Awards – Arrivals

Bang Bang into the room: Ariana Grande’s giant Giambattista Valli gown looks like it was inspired by Cinderella. The singer – who performed later during the event – later swapped into a second stunning dress, as did many other celebrities. We’d be happy with just one gorgeous gown!


Burnin’ up for you: The Jo Bros looked as dapper and coordinated as ever as they returned to the Grammy red carpet for the first time since their hugely successful reunion.


Victoria’s stunning secret: I’m loving model Alessandra Ambrosio’s Balmain dress/playsuit combination.


I like it: Cardi B looks like she’s ready to fly away as she shimmers in a sheer Mugler gown.


Man! She feels like a woman: Queen of country music, Shania Twain, wowed in this black beauty.


The Highlights:

A Tribute for Kobe Bryant

Yesterday people from all over the world mourned the death of one of the greatest sporting legends of this generation, Kobe Bryant who died in a helicopter crash alongside his daughter and seven other people. The Grammys also paid tribute to the late basketball star – who played at the Staples Center, where the award ceremony took place, many times throughout his long career – with a special performance. Host Alicia Keys acknowledged the loss in her opening monologue, saying, “We never imagined in a million years we’d have to start the show like this, so we wanted to do something do describe a tiny bit how we feel right now.” Boyz II Men then joined Keys on stage for for a moving rendition of their classic ‘It’s So Hard to Say Goodbye to Yesterday’.

An ‘Old Town Road’ Mash-up

Lil Nas X’s smash hit “Old Town Road” has led to many remixes, and the rap star brought them all together for his performance tonight. Billy Ray Cyrus, Diplo and K-Pop stars, BTS, were all among the musicians who joined him on stage for the special performance.

Demi Lovato’s Return

Demi Lovato  received a standing ovation for her first performance since being hospitalised in 2018 . The vocal powerhouse debuted her new song, ‘Anyone’, in tears and quickly needed to start over. The second time, there was no stopping her. Lovato wrote and recorded the song four days before her near-fatal overdose and subsequent hospitalisation two years ago.

Another Random Collaboration 

The finale of the show was a completely random merge of celebrities singing a tune from the hit musical ‘Fame’. Ben Platt, Camila Cabello, Common, Misty Copeland, Gary Clark Jr., and more performed ‘I Sing the Body Electric’ while students from the Debbie Allen Dance Academy danced around them. Why? Why not, I guess…
