Although Rodrigo didn’t have Massive Night Many Critics PredictedShe still won three awards, including Best Pop Vocal Performance for “Driver’s License”.

early evening, She sang a rock-infused version of the song For her Grammy debut, hitting every high note and presenting the exact taste of the song’s yearning—and proving why she deserved to be on that stage.

BTS gave fans exactly what they wanted: cheekbones, camp, and choreography.

k-pop group The performance of their megahit “Butter” began with a flirtatious conversation between V and Rodrigo, which eventually became one of the best memories of the night,

In fact, the entire performance leaned into camp and pretentiousness, casting the septet as benign secret agents. He also took a break from singing to navigate the field of lasers.

Lady Gaga’s tribute to Tony Bennett was sentimental, yet classy.

Gaga brought old Hollywood glamor to the Grammy stage, swooping her way through “Love for Sale” and “Do I Love You.”

Although Bennett wasn’t there to complete their duet, Gaga performed with tearful elegance. Once upon a time he put his hand on his shoulder in a clear salute to his absent friend,

Lil Nas X’s medley was an elaborate reminder of his pop-star prowess.

Lil Nas X made his performance debut with “Dead Right Now”. One of the most touching songs from their debut album He respects how far he’s come (“If I didn’t blow up, I’d die, try to be here / If it didn’t go, suicide, wouldn’t be here”).

He then turned into a living being, multi-dress A medley of “Montero (Call Me By Your Name)” and “Industry Baby”, aided by a hottie Jack Harlow.

Justin Bieber ruined his performance with a duller, more censored version of “Peaches”.

Not only did Bieber unsuccessfully attempt to deepen the chorus of the “Peaches” sound by opening with a slower version on piano—”I took my girl north, yeah/badass bitch”—but the rest of the song was released by CBS. Censoring the singers in seconds ruined the performance.

Daniel Caesar and Givon also could not save this mess.

Jay Balvin lacked energy and intrigue.

Reggaeton star Jay Balvin has rarely been accused of being boring, but it felt like he did “In da Ghetto” and “¿Que Mas Puis?” called in his performance.

“Between Balvin’s extraordinarily boring outfit choice (a trench coat, really?) and oversaturated lighting, he just couldn’t match Urbano’s pace,” says Gio Santiago wrote For the pitchfork.

Nas’ nostalgic performance was completely out of place.

I wish this performance slot went to someone like Tyler, The Creator (who won Best Rap Album) or Baby Keam (who won Best Rap Performance).

Instead, the Grammys listed Nas, who also did not perform the music from his eponymous album, “King’s Disease II”. Instead, he went for the easy nostalgia trick and pieced together a medley of old tracks from 2001’s “Stillmatic” and 2002’s “God’s Sun” for whatever reason.

Carrie Underwood’s performance of “Ghost Story” was predictable.

Underwood won a Grammy for Best Roots Gospel Album on Sunday, but you wouldn’t know it from her low-energy performance.

She sang “Ghost Story”, a much-anticipated ballad that was not included on her award-winning album “My Savior”. It was what you were expecting.

The Brothers Osborne was a poor choice to close the show.

After the album of the year was already presented, the Brothers Osborne took the stage to perform a live-action rendition of “Dead Man’s Curve”, but don’t worry if you didn’t catch it.

Unless a show-stopping performance was scheduled to close the ceremony—three and a half hours after it began—I can’t imagine many people would have stuck around. I certainly didn’t.
