The 2013 Grammy Awards Winners & Performances (Videos)

2

Taylor Swift opened the show with “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together”

Very underwhelming. I miss the Taylor that would stand and play her guitar beautifully.

Justin Timberlake made his official return to music with his performance of “Suit & Tie” with Jay Z.

Definitely one of the best performances of the night.

Frank Ocean “Forrest Gump”

Alicia Keys joined Adam Levine singing “Daylight” and “Girl on Fire”

There was also a Bob Marley tribute performed by Bruno Mars, Sting, Rihanna, Ziggy and Damien Marley.

Also underwhelming…but it’s the Grammy’s so I didn’t expect any dance hall queens or anything :).

Rihanna performs “Stay” with Mikky Ekko

Best performance of the night! She looked and sounded incredible! Hope Chris got the message. 😉

Kelly Clarkson sings a tribute to Patti Page, “Tennessee Waltz,” and then “(You Make Me Feel Like) A Natural Woman,” by Carole King.

And Carrie Underwood gave an amazing performance of “Blown Away”

Amazing performance as always.

I am new to blogging...but let me tell you I have been writing since I was 5 years old. My mom still has the mini books that I made in Kindergarten. As a single mother of two boys and a full blown Gemini, my outlook on life has many ups and downs. Nothing frees me more than writing. My biggest prayer is that my words help someone who is going through rough times and makes them smile...or at least laugh a little.
