P!nk steals the Grammy performances
BY LINELLE SCHULTZ
P!nk stole the scene when she performed her song “Glitter in the Air” at the 52nd Grammy Awards in Los Angeles, CA. There were many performers at the events, but ultimately it was P!nk who performed an unforgettable appearance that has set the bar high for years to come.
She began walking out in an all white hoody one piece with a blue backlight atmosphere, only to drop a robe to reveal an almost see-through body suit that was as elegant as the singer. As the song progressed, she followed in P!nk style flying through the air performing “Cirque du Soleil” acts as she spun while maintaining an amazing voice at the same time. Three-fourths of the way through the song she was lowered into the stage to be drenched with water for a closing act that was even more stunning. As she rose up into the air for the finale, the drops of water flew off her as if they were beads of “glitter” flying through the air. She finished with a fast spin that rivaled those of the ice-skating medalists with an orange sunset-like background. It was a performance of a lifetime, one that will not be forgotten. She definitely didn’t need the big video screens surrounding the stage to set the mood, as she was the spotlight of the entire event.
Other performances that happened throughout the night were:
– An opening by Lady Gaga that started off as her signature “weird” style and then progressed into an eloquent piece with Elton John at the piano. The surface of the piano was decked out with prop hands sticking straight into the air, but it was refreshing to see Gaga at her most vulnerable self, singing at the piano like she used to before she was “Gaga.”
– The eloquent Taylor Swift singing with a guitar in front of the audience. Although her performance lacked the “awe” factor that we were looking for, she still performed solid as expected.
– Beyonce had many soldiers marching behind her throughout the night as she performed a remix version of her song “If I Were A Boy.”
– Michael Jackson’s “Earth Song” tribute with guest singers Celine Dion, Carrie Underwood, Usher, Jennifer Hudson and Smokey Robinson joining the video screens for an unforgettable performance to remember the “King of Pop.”
