The 62nd Annual Grammy Awards was a somber night. Several performances from big names like the Jonas Brothers, BTS and Tyler, the Creator kicked off the night. Both Lizzo, Alicia Keys and Boys II Men began the show with a heartfelt performance in remembrance of legendary athlete Kobe Bryant, who died Sunday morning in a helicopter crash. Alicia Keys also took the time to deliver a personal song to the tune of Lewis Capaldi’s “Someone Who Loved You,” where she touched on several topics like Cardi B expressing desires to run for Congress and Trump’s impeachment trial. 

Every year an artist encounters a “first” at the Grammys and this year was no exception. Tyler, the Creator, Billie Eilish,  performed at the Grammys for the first time ever. Tyler, the Creator also took home his very first Grammy this year along with Lizzo and Billie Eilish. Elish ended up sweeping four of the major awards this year, further cementing her powerful role in the music industry at large.
