Top 10 Grammy Moments

By  |  0 Comments


The Grammys came with a lot this year, blonde wigs, fashion show stoppers, and most notably, different calls to action. Check out my list of the “Top Ten Grammy Moments” this year.

  1. Sia is never one to disappoint in terms of the visual artistry she delivers in her music and she came with nothing less at the Grammys.

 

  1. Kanye West recreated the infamous MTV video music award scene, circa 2009, between him and Taylor Swift, when Beck won “Album of the Year”. However, the move to steal Beck’s thunder proved to be just a fake out and ended in fits of laughter from the audience.

 

 

  1. Sam Smith pretty much stormed the stage as the “Stay With Me” star won four awards, including “Song of the Year”.

  1. Rihanna made a fashion splash in a big, pink, princess-y way. There were countless memes making fun of the star’s dress, but I for one respect her. She is only one who could have pulled that dress off and she’s not afraid to take giant leaps when it comes to fashion. She’s constantly pushing the envelope, which is something most “fashionistas” are afraid to do.
