There was no Will Smith moment, thankfully. Kanye West stayed home and the only shenanigans came when Bruno Mars lit a cigarette for one of his Grammys with Silk Sonic and what about Doja Cat, who was late picking her up and fixing the bottom of the dress. “I have never urinated so fast in my entire life,” he said to justify his delay.

At the beginning of the night, he walked over to the guests’ table, saying: “Before we kill each other, I also see Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga…”. The two Spaniards who chose the Latin categories, Pablo Alborán and C. Tangana, went away empty-handed.
These were the best moments of the ceremony…

Shocking performance by Billie Eilish. He showed up wearing a T-shirt with a large printed image of recently deceased Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins. They . began to explain happier than ever In a room where the water reached his ankles, and there the singer moved to the softest part of the song. When the anger came, Eilish was already on the roof, his brother Phineas on the guitar and his drummer pounding like a beast.

Good thing Jasmine Sullivan won

John Batiste climbs onto Billie Eilish’s table
John Batiste took his performance as a riot. They put on a colorful show with dancers, musicians, people in costume, flashy visuals… and their dance and their voices, in the purest James Brown school, but without getting offended.
