Recap of Best Grammy 2013 Performances

The 2013 Grammy Awards was filled with a plethora of powerful performances with a perfect mixture of incredible collaborations and solos.

Taylor Swift opened the Grammy’s with what appeared to be an Alice and Wonderland inspired set as she sang “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together.”

Ed Sheeran, joined by the incomparable Elton John, both created a magically stunning performance together as they so beautifully sang Sheeran’s hit song “The A-team.”

Fan favorite musical band Fun took the Grammy stage as they performed their song “Carry On” from their Grammy nominated album Some Nights.

Country superstar Miranda Lambert and Dierk Bentley joined forces on the Grammy stage as they gave a heart-warming performance covering Lambert’s “Over You” and Bentley’s “Home.”

Later, Miguel impressed with his alluringly sexy vocals as he covered his nominated song “Adorn.”

Boy that man can sing as he embellished a portion of the song with such a superb falsetto.

Wiz joined Miguel on the Grammy stage all swagged out in matching black and white striped outfits.

Mumford and Sons got the crowd on their feet as they performed their hit song “I Will Wait” off their Babel album.

One of the most classical performances of the night goes to Justin Timberlake who not only performed his newly released single “Suit and Tie,” with the help of Jay-Z, but also covered a yet to be heard song “Pusher Love Girl” off his highly anticipated album titled 20/20 Experience.

Might I add both Timberlake and Jay-Z looked quite dapper in those tuxedos!

Timberlake proved he has not lost his musical mojo as he soulfully sang and danced while backed by a symphony orchestra.

Maroon 5 soon after came on stage as they sang their new hit song “Daylight.”

Mid- way through the song, Alicia Keys came on stage as Levine and Keys created a lovely mashup between “Girl on Fire” and “Daylight.”

Rihanna, Bruno, Mars, and Sting gathered together on stage to pay tribute to reggae icon Bob Marley.

The trio performed Marley’s classical hit “Could You Be Loved” and original songs strongly influenced by Marley.

Mars started by singing his hit song “Locked Out of Heaven” from his latest album Unorthodox Jukebox.

This song which undoubtedly draws inspiration from the Police served perfectly fitting as Sting joined Mars in the second verse of the song.

Then Sting swiftly covered his 1979 Police Song titled “Walking on the Moon” as Mars sang and played guitar in the background.

Mars then introduced Rihanna and Ziggy Marley as they covered “Could You Be Loved.”

Ziggy’s younger brother Damian joined the gang on stage as he added a unique rap verse to the song, which gave it a fresh new flavor and spunk.
