The 2016 Grammy Awards just wrapped up, Kendrick took home best Rap album, Jack U swept both electronic/dance categories and Taylor Swift just won best album. No real surprises anywhere there. As always, the Grammys featured performances by some of 2015’s biggest acts along with tributes to those that we lost along the way in 2015.
The night’s highlights for me included a fiery Kendrick Lamar performance which included, “The Blacker The Berry,” “Alright,” and in classic Kendrick fashion…a brand new song. Jack U’s performance was a live band rendition of the mega hit ‘Where Are You Now’ which featured Skrillex on guitar, Diplo on percussion and a few other and members to back it all up.
But the highlight for me came from Lady Gaga’s incredible tribute to David Bowie. It was weird, it was experimental, and it made everyone say “…what?” at least once. In classic David Bowie Fashion. I like to think he would approve.
What an incredible 2015 for music. Here’s to an even better 2016.
