2017 Grammys were definitely a night a tribute
The Grammys has been known to pay tribute in various ways to music legends alive or dead, and this year the Grammy Awards was chalked full of tributes.
Bruno Mars paid tribute to the late great music legend Prince. Who would of thought that anyone could rock “Let’s Go Crazy” anything like Prince himself, however Mars definitely did a pretty good job at it (other than he needed to be a renown guitar tech flamenco master Eddie Van Halen Jimi Hendrix combined with Steve Vai = Prince possibly soon after listening to Frank Zappa’s album Shut Up And Play Yer Guitar).
On a much more emotional and dramatic note, Adele paid tribute to George Micheal with a haunting rendition of his song “Fastlove”. The performance featured a montage of photos of George Micheal throughout the years. Adele’s microphone had a technical difficultly where she then required to start the song again to make the moment just right (also F-bombing because of it).
Demi Lovato, Andra Day, Tory Kerry, and Little Big Town discoed down with a tribute to the legendary Bee Gees (two of The Brothers Gibb gone now, with the last surviving memeber being the most famous, Barry Gibb), with the songs “Stayin’ Alive”, “Tragedy”, “How Deep Is You Love”, and “Night Fever”.
John Legend was joined by Broadway star Cynthia Erivo for a rendition of the song “God Only Knows” as a tribute to The Beach Boys (which they’ve recently also debuted as a single).
And last by not certainly not least, the late great David Bowie was awarded 4 Grammys.
