The Grammy's, Quick Recap: Watch Kendrick Lamar's Greatness, Lady Gaga's David Bowie Tribute, Taylor Swift's Shade & More!


The 58th Grammy's is a wrap! Here's your quick recap:

This year, many artists decided not to attend the award show, like Chris Brown. Breezy posted about it earlier and asked his Instagram followers how boring do they think the show will be this year?

Well, me, I enjoyed The Grammy's this year. I think the show had a lot of great moments, like...

Kendrick Lamar's Greatness

... Kendrick's smashing performance! 



Kendrick hands down had the best performance of the night and absolutely killed it! He performed "The Blacker The Berry" in chains and with his band locked inside jails cells. 

Message! 

The rapper then followed up with a performance of his hit "Alright." 

Kendrick Lamar led the nominees tonight with 11 noms, including for every Rap category and for 'Album of the Year' with To Pimp a ButterflyDuring the broadcast, he won 'Best Rap Album,' beating out J. Cole, Dr. Dre, Nicki Minaj and Drake. 

Go, Kendrick!

Check out his Grammy's performance below:


Adele Sings Through A Fallen Mic

Adele performed her hit "All I Ask" through some technical difficulties and tweeted afterwards:

Haha, sh*t happens! 

And, when it does, just go to In-N-Out Burger, yasss! Check out Adele's performance below:



Taylor Swift Throws Subliminal Kanye Shade

Taylor Swift won the award for 'Album Of The Year' and slammed Kanye West!

During her acceptance speech, the singer said:

"There are going to be people along the way who are going to try and undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishments or your fame, but if you just focus on the work and you don't let those people sidetrack you, someday when you get where you're going you'll look around and you'll know that it was you and the people who love you who put you there, and that will be the greatest feeling in the world."


You tell 'em, Taylor!



This is in response to Kanye's new song "Famous" where he raps, "I made that b*tch famous" ... referring to Taylor. 


Oh, and it looks like Tori Kelly wasn't here for Taylor's speech, lol. Peep her reaction below:

Queen Bey Graces The Stage, Bruno Mars Wins

Beyonce slayed the stage for like 10 seconds, lol. 

No, she didn't perform, but she presented her Super Bowl buddy Bruno Mars with 'The Record of the Year' award for his song "Uptown Funk."

A well deserved win!


Bey also gave a quick speech beforehand and said:


Rihanna Cancels 

Unfortunately, Rihanna cancelled her live Grammy's performance. She reportedly has bronchitis and is now on vocal rest. 
Get well soon, RiRi!

Lady Gaga Rocks Out

Gaga performed an amazing David Bowie tribute! 

The singer performed over six minutes of Bowie's discography and slayed onstage. Peep her tribute medley below:






The Weeknd opened with a performance of "Can't Feel My Face," before singing his other hit song, "In the Night." Check him out below:




Hip hop legend Lauryn Hill had a planned duet with The Weeknd, but she pulled out at the last minute. 


Also, The Weeknd was nominated for seven Grammy's and won two: 'Best R&B Performance' for his 50 Shades of Grey hit, "Earned It," and 'Best Urban Contemporary Album' for Beauty Behind the Madness.
