Grammys 2022 Highlights

The Grammys honored music released between September 1st, 2020, and September 30th, 2021. Winners were chosen by more than 11,000 voting members of the Recording Academy, who qualified by receiving recommendations from other music professionals. 

The show began with a rapid-fire carousel of contemporary pop, with elaborate stagings that were missing from last year’s stripped-down show.

Many music icons performed during the ceremony. To name a few, Silk Sonic, Bruno Mars and Anderson Paak’s retro soul-funk project, performed ‘777,’ a song about the high-rolling, Sin City side of Las Vegas. Olivia Rodrigo, a 19-year-old pop sensation, performed her hit ‘Drivers License’ on a set modeled after a suburban street, her voice swelling to emotional peaks before breaking as it fell.

J Balvin performed the song ‘Qué Más Pues? with Maria Becerra, and his song ‘In da Getto’ in front of a stadium full of masked dancers. Lil Nas X, the rapper, singer, and meme master, also performed a high-concept medley of his songs ‘Dead Right Now,’ ‘Montero (Call Me by Your Name),’ and ‘Industry Baby,’ which featured Jack Harlow, interspersed with a montage of overheated media commentators.

BTS, meanwhile, took the stage for a high-energy rendition of their hit “Butter.” They delivered a memorable performance that was full of panache, channeling a James Bond-style vibe. As the performance was about to start, BTS V and Olivia Rodrigo were caught in the act of whispering something into her ear while she gasped at his revelation. This flirtatious moment between Olivia and V has certainly taken the ARMY by surprise, as they can’t stop screaming with joy and a tinge of jealousy.

Justin Bieber performed his song ‘Peaches’ on the piano as well together with Daniel Caesar and Giveon. From Justin’s wife Hailey to Lady Gaga, BTS, and others, the audience loved the group’s soulful performance of “Peaches.”

The biggest night in music is essentially one big concert where awards are given out. 

It was that, but because of a mid-show appearance by Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky, who spoke of Ukrainian musicians in body armor and appealed for support, everything landed in a context that seemed to escape last week’s Oscars.

For a brief moment, the night of music and celebration came to a halt as attention was drawn to the ongoing invasion and the plight of the Ukrainian people. The aforementioned Zelensky appearance set up a performance by John Legend, who sang “Free” while wearing a blue suit as a visual salute to Ukraine. In this moving moment, he was joined on stage by Ukrainian singer Mika Newton and poet Lyuba Yakimchuk. – WhatALife!
