Music’s Biggest Night

by Jamel Rogers, staff reporter

Music’s elite joined together for the 55th annual Grammy Awards, hosted by actor and rapper LL Cool J. The Grammy’s returned to Staples Center in Los Angeles on Sunday, February 10.

Taylor Swift appeared in a white top hat and spunky pants to kick off the night with a rendition of her hit single “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.” She danced alongside acrobats, clowns, men on stilts and an actor of her ex-boyfriend pinned to a spinning target.

“When I was younger I thought there was no such thing as the Grammys, But when I watched it two years ago and watched P!nk perform ‘Glitter In the Air,’ I fell in love with it,” senior Michelle Rivera said.

The evening promised a little something for everyone with performances by Frank Ocean, Mumford & Sons, Dan Auerbach, Rihanna, and a comeback performance by Justin Timberlake.

“I actually enjoyed the Grammy’s this year, I realized it was different from the last few years, but it was still very interesting. My favorite performance was Alicia Keys and Maroon 5”. Said 8th Grader, Belinda Polycarpe.

The Grammy’s ended with a tribute to the legendary reggae Bob Marley in a performance opening by Bruno Mars singing “Locked out of Heaven,” followed by Rihanna, Ziggy Marley, Sting, and Junior Marley appearing on stage with a medley of songs.
This years Grammy’s was a fun party, whether one was there or a viewer at home. Although some people were disappointed that their favorites in music did not win, the night was one to remember.
