The 5 Best Moments from the 2020 Grammy Awards

As expected, the 62nd annual Grammy Awards ceremony was a night to remember.

From Billy Porter’s mechanical hat to a number of emotional tributes, music’s big night out was full of OMG moments. Here, the five best things that happened during tonight’s Grammys.

1. Lizzo’s Opening Performance

From her sweet tribute to the late basketball star Kobe Bryant to her multiple costume changes, the Good as Hell singer opened the show with an incredible performance. And did we mention she performed a flute solo? Yeah—epic.

2. When Boyz Ii Men Helped Alicia Keys Honor Kobe Bryant

During her opening monologue, the Grammys host shared some solemn words for the crowd, acknowledging Kobe's death right off the bat by saying that everyone there (and in the world) was feeling “crazy sadness.”

Then came a huge moment—she brought out Boyz II Men and sang “It's So Hard to Say Goodbye.” Pass the tissues, please. 

3. And Usher Paid A Sweet Tribute To Prince With Fka Twigs And Sheila E

Usher led the Prince tribute singing his rendition of “Little Red Corvette,” before moving on to a medley including “When Doves Cry” and “Touch.” Oh yeah, and FKA Twigs showed us some dance moves on a pole.

4. When Ariana Grande Made Her Grammys Return With A Lingerie-filled Performance

We pretty much got everything we wanted from the “7 Rings” singer. She sang a medley of songs from her most recent two albums and danced around in a robe and glitter. Don't worry, her ponytail remained intact. 

5. And Finally, When Demi Lovato Brought The Audience To Its Feet

There wasn’t a dry eye in the house when Lovato debuted her new song “Anyone” on the Grammys stage. She was even so emotional that she had to start it a second time. And man, those lyrics are powerful.
