The IMCs favourite moments from the 55th annual Grammy Awards:
little bitLOT of jealousy…Chris Brown refused to join the standing ovation for Frank Ocean after winning in Breezys category.
- Taylor Swift performs “Never Getting Back Together“ on stage, finishing it off in an English accent- a serious indirect to her ex-beau One Direction’s, Harry Styles.
- Rap mogul Jay Z mocked The Dream on stage for his strange decision to wear two hats… “I would like to thank the swapmeat for his hats”.
- Who said stars can’t get starstruck?! Brit winner Adele did her best to get a photo with everyone from Beyonce to Rihanna. But she wasn’t the only one. Tyler, The Creator seized the opportunity to sneak one in with Jack White, J. Lo, Ne-Yo, Flo Rida, Timbaland …and just about everyone else he could corner.
- MEANWHILE (probably our favourite diva moment) Justin Bieber snubs the Grammys for not receiving a single nomination and sets up a Livestream for his fans whilst on vacay with his family. At the exact same time as the awards. Bieber’s fans clearly chose him over the award show and crashed the Livestream website. When a topless Justin finally made it online he previewed his new track “You Want Me“.
We all know the night wouldn’t be complete without a few performances to keep us going throughout the 78 awards…
Bruno Mars, Sting, Rihanna and two of the Marley brothers, Damien and Ziggy stole the show with their tribute to the late great Bob Marley by performing a reggae collaboration.
Some of the other more notable performances included an two unlikely collabs from Ed Sheeran and Elton John, Alicia Keys and Maroon 5, Carrie Underwood, Frank Ocean and the return of Mr Justin Timberlake with “Suit and Tie“.
The IMCs best and worst dressed from the star spangled catwalks of the 2013 Grammy Awards:
We suggest Adele’s photobooth should probably win a Grammy too…
