Best moments: What you missed from the Grammys 2022

Published

The 64th Grammy Awards have come to an end after a star-studded night of performances, tributes, and thank you speeches

Silk Sonic, with Bruno Mars and Anderson Pak, opened the Grammys and later took home the award for both ‘Song of the year’ and ‘Record of their year’ for their hit debut single ‘Leave the Door Open’.

In what was Olivia Rodrigo’s first appearance at the Grammys, the star managed to snag three golden gramophones for Best New Artist, Best Pop Solo Performance, and Best Pop Vocal Album. The 19 yr old gave a theatrical performance of her song ‘driver’s license’ in a white dress with a matching vintage Mercedes Benz.

Among the night’s other iconic wins, was Doja Cat rushing to the stage to accept her award for Best Pop Duo alongside SZA after taking an ill-timed bathroom break. After catching her breath, Doja gave an emotional acceptance speech wherein she broke down and said she usually downplays a lot of things, but this award was a big deal.

Music’s biggest night was packed with performances full of cheer and dancing. BTS’s performance of the song ‘Butter’ had seemingly new choreography from the K-pop group that got the audience out of their seats and dancing.

Lil Nas X also performed a medley of his songs. In between one of his outfit changes, a montage of the controversy surrounding his hit single ‘Montero (Call Me by Your Name)’ played. The montage included tweets and articles including those from Fox News.

Grammys’s ‘In-Memoriam’ segment was kickstarted with an emotional tribute to the late Foo Fighters drummer, Taylor Hawkins. Billie Eilish also honored Hawkins through her performance of the song ‘Happier than ever’ while wearing a T-shirt with his name and face.

The in-memoriam segment also paid a tribute to DMX, Meat Loaf, Ronnie Spector, Virgil Abloh, and Biz Markie.

In one of the more surprising moments of the night, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky delivered a pre-taped speech to the grammy audience.

“What is more opposite of music? The silence of ruined cities and killed people,” Zelenskyy said, asking the musicians to fill the silence caused by Russian bombs with their music.

The speech was followed by John Legend’s performance of his new song ‘Free’ alongside Ukrainian musicians Mika Newton and Suzanna Iglidan. Ukrainian poet, Lyuba Yakimchuk who flew to the country recently also delivered a poem.

Jon Batiste accepts the Grammy award for Album of the Year.

The night ended with Jon Batiste winning Album of the Year for ‘We Are’. This makes for a memorable win as not only did Batiste win 5 out of his 11 nominations, but he also became the first Black artist to win Album of The Year since 2008.
