The 2019 Grammys’ highs & lows, From Gaga The rock star into J.Lo’s Mointown letdown #Lady_GagaFebruary 11, 2019
HIGH: Lady Gaga is a rock star reborn
But leave it to Lady Gaga to really rock the Grammys.
Lady Gaga accepts the Best Pop Duo/Group Performance award for “Shallow” (with Bradley Cooper) at the 61st Annual Grammy Awards Feb. 10, 2019, in Los Angeles.
LOW: Jennifer Lopez sings Motown, is a letdown
… But the most important thing he is known to us is for being the greatest father and our hero.”
But her true winning moment was her understated, substance-over-style performance of her Record/Song of the Year nominee, “The Joke.”
HIGH: Michelle Obama is the Grammys’ first lady
LOW: The big show suffers many no-shows
It was more disappointing that some unrelated Carters, Jay-Z and Beyoncé, weren’t there to accept their Best Urban Contemporary Album award for Everything Is Love , and Childish Gambino wasn’t there to accept his Song or Record of the Year awards for his political protest song “This Is America.” Additionally, the presentation for Best Pop Vocal Album got moved at the last minute to the pre-telecast Premiere Ceremony — probably not coincidentally because the winner of that award was no-show Ariana Grande ’s Sweetener .
At least Drake showed up.
She gave a special shout out to her daughter, Kulture, during her acceptance speech. “It was very long nights,” she said about making her album while pregnant.
“I want to thank all the artists that took their time and did verses for my album,” Cardi B said before turning to Offset. “You, husband, thank you.”
