All the Top Moments from the 2020 Grammy Awards

All the Top Moments from the 2020 Grammy Awards

No one but Alicia Keys could have taken on hosting last night's 2020 Grammy Awards. It was a somber mood after the news broke of the loss of hero, friend, and legend, Kobe Bryant, and his daughter. Many in the room weren't ready to take on a celebratory air but Alicia kicked off the show with love and compassion, making it okay to celebrate music for the night. “I know how much Kobe loved music,” she said. “We gotta make this a celebration in his honor. He would want us to keep the vibrations high.”

Billie Eilish and her brother Finneas were the big winners of the night, walking away with nine Grammys between the two of them. She's the youngest Grammy winner to win Album of the Year making Grammys history. Congrats to Billie! Other big winners included Lizzo, who was nominated for a whopping eight Grammys, and walked away with three and my friend DJ Khalid who won for Best Rap/Sung Performance.

The best performance of the night goes to Alicia Keys. As the host, she rocked the mic a total of three times, giving us an Acappella tribute to Kobe Bryant, an improvised version of Lewis Capaldi's "Someone You Love," on the piano, and a performance of her new song Underdog. One of my other favorite performances came from Latin music phenom, Rosalia. The girl can sing and dance flamenco—all while wearing sneakers.

The red carpet was also full of show stopping gowns and dresses from the likes of Lizzo and Ariana Grande.
