The 63rd Grammy Awards, hosted by Trevor Noah of The Daily Show, featured memorable performances from Billie Eilish, Dua Lipa, Megan Thee Stallion, Harry Styles, and other chart-topping artistes. Here’s a look at some of the best performances from the show.
Billie Eilish and Finneas
Billie Eilish and Finneas delivered a mesmerizing rendition of their hit song everything i wanted that was elevated by their staging, which saw the 19-year-old singer standing atop a black sports car that appeared to be partially submerged in water, with her big brother playing the keyboards behind her. They performed in a largely audience-free room inside the Los Angeles Convention Center.
The trio rocked out to a lively rendition of The Steps that saw Este and Alana stomping and headbanging in combat boots and minidresses as Danielle beat the drums behind them.
Dua Lipa had everything one can ask for: a medley of two of our favorite songs (Levitating and Don’t Start Now), killer dance moves, multiple wardrobe changes (she started in a voluminous long-sleeve ballgown, changed into a dazzling blazer-inspired minidress and then closed out her set in sequined briefs and a matching crop-top) and an assist from collaborator DaBaby, who returned to the stage to rap his verse from Levitating while surrounded by pink-clad backup dancers, performing a dance routine that looked almost like an aerobics class.
BTS proved with their performance that talent is all that you need to keep people entertained. Their virtual performance of Dynamite featured strong vocals, flawless choreography and just a touch of pyrotechnics as the boys traveled to different locations throughout a building in Seoul, South Korea, ultimately concluding on the roof.
Taylor Swift’s vocals were totally on point as she performed an emotional rendition of her ethereal hit single Cardigan while reclined in what at first appeared to be grass but was soon revealed to be the mossy roof of a cabin in the woods. She then went on to perform August and Willow.
