You can call the Grammys a lot of things, but you cannot call them boring. Like, ever.
The 60th Annual Grammys did not disappoint on Sunday night, with host James Corden returning once again to take us on a wild musical ride into the past year of the industry. Nominees like Bruno Mars and Kendrick Lamar took home big awards and wowed us with truly kinetic and eye-popping performances. The Time’s Up movement came to the Grammys in the form of white roses worn in solidarity, an emotional yet powerful performance from Kesha and an excellent speech made by Janelle Monáe. Things also got political when a skit featuring celebrities reading from Michael Wolff’s Fire and Fury was shown as well as U2 giving all of us an American civics lesson with their performance. And of course, things were fun, feisty and totally wild, because, hello, it’s the freaking Grammys, y’all.
