The Grammys 2013 - my highlights.


And the night of music is over....

Hey guys,
I am incredibly tired because I basically stayed up until 5am to watch the Grammys. As a massive music lover it was the event of events to watch. 

While watching my little notebook was next to me so I could write down my favourite moments to later have them in mind and blog about them. :)

I'm not going to talk about the whole show, only my favourite moments. ;)


So as a lot of you may know - I'm a Taylor Swift fan. When I heard the first few chords of "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" being strummed I got really excited to see hear opening up the Grammys. But I really have to be honest (because that's what writing reviews is about!) I was a bit disappointed by her performance.
It seemed to be more about the looks then the music and that wasn't really what I expected. I mean, sure, Taylor is known for her theater-play-like performances but somehow I wasn't really happy about that one. 

About that Harry Styles thingy she did ... uhm well ... I'm not quiet sure if he really called her up and was like "I still love youuu." ...


Ed Sheeran and Sir Elton John singing Ed's "The A Team". Oh my. Talk about perfection. I'm really afraid not to find the right words for this performance because it literally took my breath away. It was simple and simply beautiful.


Seeing John Mayer present Miranda Lambert and Dierks Bentley also made me super happy. The mash-up of "Over You" and "Home" really got me. Especially Miranda's "Over You" since it's meaning is such a strong one.

I got so happy when Carrie Underwood won "Best Solo Country Performance" for "Blown Away". Well deserved!

And then got sad when Ed Sheeran didn't win "Song Of The Year" for "The A Team".


But then got happy again when Ellen Degeneres and Beyonce presented Justin Timberlake. I mean JT is awesome and so is Beyonce but I mostly loved Ellen. That woman is the funniest!


Maroon 5 and Alicia Keys smashing up "Daylight" and "Girl On Fire" - whoa that performance was like a day on fire.

When Kelly Clarkson won "Best Pop Vocal Album" ... let's talk about adorableness (is that even a word?). I mean you could tell how happy and nervous she was.. So cute and well deserved.


Usually I'm not a big Rihanna fan but since I'm honest I just have to mention that I liked her performance of "Stay" a lot. It was simple and emotional. 


Ok back to Kelly Clarkson again. Her tribute to Patti Page and Carole King was definitely one of the best vocal performances of the night.

Bruno Mars and Sting performaning "Locked Out Of Heaven" was But let's not only talk about them but also give credits to Bruno's band. These guys are filled with energy and enthusiam. 
When Rihanna and Ziggy and Damian Marley entered stage and the performance turned into a Bob Marley tribute you could totally see sparks fly in the audience. It was magical.


Last thing I need to talk about - Carrie Underwood's performance!!! Yes, her dress was amazing but her voice was ten times more breathtaking. In my opinion that was the performance of the night! You go Carrie! *insert standing ovation here*

So what did you guys think about this year's Grammys? Let me know in the comments! :)
