Best performance of the night?
Last night I put Real Housewives of Atlanta to the side in order to sit and watch the WACK Grammys. For me if I didn’t know the person performing, who ever was on stage was just a little dry to me. Even Katy Perry didn’t give me what I needed and I normally love her performances.
King B and her baby daddy Jayz opened this years 2014 Grammys with a sexy performance of Beyonce’s new single Drunk In Love. Personally I loved the performance because it reminded me of the video; fun and care free. You can tell they didn’t spend a crap load of time getting a routine together because just like the song it was about having fun. Now I will say I don’t feel it was the best opener for the show, I actually feel Katy Perry could have opened the show.
As for Macklemore and Ryan Lewis’ performance to be honest the wedding was the best part of it. Other than that it was just like any other time Macklemore has performed “Same Love,” he does his thing the girl (who’s name I can never remember) sings the whole song by herself and then some steps out those doors and helps her sing the end. Don’t get me wrong I love Macklemore, and it’s not just because he’s from Seattle and right about now my city is on an all time “pride” high, but it’s because I actually like his music. So with that being said I need new music and a different performance style for that particular song if he’s going to keep getting requested to do it.
As for my favorite performance of the night. It was surely Mr Kendrick Lamar! If it wasn’t his energy it was his demeanor, if wasn’t that it was the sounds that blasted out of those drums. I was in a complete daze watching Kendrick Lamar perform on that stage it was like the music possessed him and it jumped right into me! On my way to work today I watched the performance again and had to stop myself from screaming and jumping up and down all over again. I request that Kendrick Lamar does a Rock inspired album he has the energy for it. Maybe that can be something different for him in 2014.
