Grammy Tributes 2016

“I don’t know where I’m going from here, but I promise it won’t be boring.”– David Bowie

The 2016 Grammy’s honored a lot of late and great artists that have gone on to a much better place as well as tributes to those who made music before so that we can have the music we have now. David Bowie, Scott Weiland, Maurice White, and Lionel Richie were among the few to be recognized for their talent and work history within the industry.

Demi Lovato and her lovatics are ecstatic today after a great first trip to the Grammy’s. Lovato spoke to E! News about her tribute performance to Lionel Richie, “I’ve never been before, and it’s because a long time ago my manager told me, ‘You should wait to go to the Grammy’s until you’re presenting, nominated, or performing.” She captured the stage along with John Legend, Luke Bryan, Meghan Trainor, and Tyrese Gibson.  We could all see it on Lionel Richie’s face, that he thoroughly enjoyed his tributes as a show stopping performance.

Lady Gaga’s performance was deemed “experiential” and “multisensory” as she, over the course of a six-plus-minute performance, ran through nine different selections from Bowie’s discography. Her performance was a burst of good ole rock n roll on a Monday night. Her graphics, and fashion choices made the performance one to remember. She started off with a snippet of “Space Oddity” and ended with “Rebel Rebel.”

These Grammy tributes were extraordinary this year. The expectations for trying to relive someone’s career highlights are very dim but each and every one of these performers went above and beyond to pay homage to those before us still here, and those who have passed away while their legacy lives on.
