Here Are The Top 10 Moments From Grammys 2017!

One of the biggest nights for the music industry which takes place every year, the 59th Grammy Awards recently came to a close which recognized some of the best works and turned the spotlight on emerging and veteran acts alike. While Adele and David Bowie bagged five awards each, the live ceremony saw incredible performances by Beyonce, Bruno Mars, The Weeknd and much more. And we at The Bangin Beats have compiled the Top 10 moments from this year’s Grammys.

Read on.


David Bowie Was Posthumously Awarded With All The Five Grammys He Was Nominated For!

It has been a long time coming, and probably, a bit too long! Late English singer/songwriter and a legendary figure within the music industry, David Bowie posthumously won every Grammy Award he was nominated for as his latest album “Blackstar” won Best Rock Performance, Best Alternative Music Album, Best Engineered Album, Non-classical, Best Recording Package and  Best Rock Song. A well-deserved win for the late visionary, the only surprise in store ended up being that these five accolades became the first real recognition of David Bowie’s music by the Recording Company.


Adele Restarted Her Sensational George Michael Tribute From Scratch!

UK’s very own iconic singer, Adele carried out a phenomenal George Michael tribute at this year’s Awards ceremony. Honoring the late legendary singer, the “Hello” hitmaker stopped the procession after one verse before saying “I know it’s live TV, I’m sorry. I can’t do it again like last year. I’m sorry for swearing and I’m sorry for starting again. Can we please start it again? I’m sorry, I can’t mess this up.”


Lady Gaga Meets Metallica

A highly awaited and equally surprising live collaboration between pop heavyweight Lady Gaga and heavy metal lords Metallica, their dedicated effort failed to hit the sweet spot as their brief performance was marred by James Hetfield’s defunct mic. As the singer tried to cover up for the frontman’s vocal absence, they both later tried to carry out a impromptu duet of the band’s record “Moth Into Flame“.


Adele Literally Decided To Share The “Album Of The Year” Award With Beyonce

Adele not only bagged the “Big Three” (Album Of The Year, Song Of The Year, Record Of The Year) at this year’s Grammys, but also took home the awards for Best Pop Vocal Album (“25“) and Best Pop Vocal Performance (“Hello“). But as recognized by the female talent herself alongside several others within the industry and fans alike, Beyonce yet again failed to claim the Album Of The Year Award with her Lemonade LP. And with that in mind, Adele literally broke the prize into two halves to share it with Queen Bey.


Bruno Mars Delivered A Thunderous Prince Tribute

Legendary act Prince‘s legacy shall always been around, and to pay a fitting tribute to the late artist, Bruno Mars took over the 59th Grammys to perform a sensational cover of the ‘Purple Rain‘ hit maker’s “Let’s Go Crazy”. A funky and enthralling performance indeed, Bruno’s exceptional effort stood out as one of the night’s best!


Chance The Rapper Made History At The Grammys

There’s not thing this man cannot do. Chicago-based artist Chance The Rapper not only bagged the prize for Best New Artist and Best Rap Performance for “No Problem” at The Grammys, but also beat out fellow heavyweights such as Kanye West and Drake to win Best Rap Album for his streaming-only mixtape Coloring Book this past year. Despite not being signed to any label, the 23-year old rapper has led the movement to orchestrate a highly awaited move by The Recording Company to allow artists who were unsigned or released streaming-only albums to be eligible for the Awards.


Daft Punk Returned To The Stage For Their First Live Performance In 3 Years!

Daft Punk‘s highly awaited live return saw the French duo take to the stage after 3 long years, joining The Weeknd to play their collaborative single ‘I Feel It Coming‘ from the former’s album Starboy. Featuring an incredible stage design and state of the art production as usual, the performance saw the robots don the same outfits from the Starboy painting (well almost), with The Weeknd‘s impeccable stage presence and live vocals that took the gig to a whole new level. Starting off with the intro from ‘Starboy‘, Daft Punk blended in ‘I Feel It Coming‘ with The Weeknd coming on, featuring elements from ‘Da Funk‘ and ‘Contact‘.


Beyonce’s Goddess-Like Performance!

 While Beyonce did take home two Grammys namely Best Urban Contemporary Album (“Lemonade“) and Best Music Video (“Formation“), she dazzled like the true queen she is when she took over the stage for a mind-blowing nine minute performance. As she sang “Love Drought” and “Sandcastles“, Beyonce also treated the world to an honest explanation behind the creation of her latest LP!


Twenty One Pilots Accepted Their Grammy Award Just Like They Wanted!

Twenty One Pilots grabbed a well deserved Grammy Award for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance (“Stressed Out“) yesterday! And accepting the recognition like only then can, the duo took center stage as they showed up in their boxer briefs. While vocalist Tyler Joseph also said that the plan had been in the works for years, it looks like they can check it out right off their bucket list now.


The Dance Category Produced Three Debut Grammy Award Recipients

The 59th Grammys awarded multiple dance music producers with their debut wins. The Chainsmokers took home the prize for Best Dance Recording with their Daya-assisted single ‘Don’t Let Me Down. Portuguese producer RAC bagged the award for Best Remixed Recording for his exceptional rework of Bob Moses‘ ‘Tearing Me Up‘. And lastly, wrapping up the dance music category, Flume won his debut Grammy Award with his sophomore album ‘Skin‘ being adjudged as Best Dance/Electronic Album which competed against the likes of Jean-Michel JarreTycho, Underworld and Louie Vega.
