Armed with the bright presence and infectious energy of Cardi B who was nominated for Best Rap Song and Best Rap Performance, Bruno Mars brought delight to Grammy stage.
The duo delivered an electrifying performance of their latest collaboration which is a remix to the fourth track on Mars “24K Magic” album titled “Finesse”.
Effortless is one of the best ways to describe Bruno Mars, who had an extremely successful evening, taking home the Grammys’ three top awards: Album of the Year, Song of the Year, and Record of the Year . He makes dancing, hitting the right notes, and exuding just the right amount of charm — while never straying into obnoxiousness — look so easy.
Kendrick Lamar started the show on a high note, explosively rapping his way through a medley from DAMN; which would win the Grammy for Best Rap Album later that night. Lamar danced his way around a single drummer as hooded dancers collapsed to gunshot sounds.
“Despacito” was one of the biggest songs of 2017, and Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee’s Grammys performance of the original song (and not the Justin Bieber remix) made it easy to see why so many people instantly fell in love with it. Fonsi’s crooning and Yankee’s enthusiasm brought the audience to its feet and had people dancing along to the unstoppable pop-love-ballad-reggaeton amalgam that is “Despacito.” It’s rare to see a Spanish-language song get prime billing at the Grammys, but Yankee and Fonsi proved that it’s shortsighted to not give Latin music its proper due.
Despacito was nominated in three categories but failed bag any award.
The snubbing of SZA in the race for Best New Artist was one of the biggest shockers of the evening (the trophy went to Alessia Cara), but SZA reminded the audience exactly what the Grammy voters failed to recognize with this smooth, stylish performance. She may not have a golden gramophone, but she’s got charisma and vocal control for days.
