The 2021 GRAMMY Awards Show Reminded Us That Artists Are Fans, Too

Although notably different this year, Music's Biggest Night reminded us that artists are fans of artists too. Here are some of those moments that made us feel warm inside

GRAMMYs/Mar 17, 2021 - 12:47 am

Every year the GRAMMY Awards show lets us fan-out over our favorite artists. We can't wait to see what they wear, what they'll perform, and we hope that they'll take home the big prize of the night: a golden gramophone.

Although notably different this year (sorry that you felt a little cold sitting in the socially-distanced space outside, Jacob Collier!), the Biggest Night In Music gave us a bit of a reality check: Artists are fans of artists too. Thanks to the intimate stage setting in which our favorite music stars were able to sit side-stage to experience other performances, we saw them light up as they watched on. These moments made us feel a little closer, especially as the pandemic has forced us to be a part. Here are the moments that made us feel warm inside:

Billie Eilish Swaying to Harry Styles' "Watermelon Sugar" Opening Performance

Billie Eilish was among the first to perform at the 2021 GRAMMY Awards show, but not before she got an up-close and personal view of Harry Styles' opening act. Eilish, who took home the coveted "Record Of The Year" award, rocked back and forth with a sweet smile on her face as the British superstar did his thing on stage with his 2020 hit "Watermelon Sugar."

Harry Styles' Reactions To Black Pumas And Billie Eilish On Stage 

Styles was one of the night's biggest cheerleaders and had his own moments of admiration for some of the other performers. As Black Pumas gave a soulful performance of "Colors," the Best Pop Solo Performance winner of the night, looked on, singing word for one at one point. He continued the support when Billie Eilish took the stage with an emotive performance of "Everything I wanted." Styles intently watched as Eilish performed one of her biggest hits, showing how much he was feeling it with his head bopping.

Jhay Cortez and Bad Bunny Grooving To Dua Lipa 

Dua Lipa gave an electrifying performance of her hits "Levitating" and "Don't Start Now," and Jhay Cortez and Bad Bunny were front row to see it. The Puerto Rican superstars had recently stepped off stage when the Best Pop Vocal Album winner of the night took us back to the disco era. The two were seen singing along and showing off their own dance moves.

Megan Thee Stallion's "What Would Beyoncé Do" Moment With Beyonce

While the Hot girl and Bey, didn't step on the stage together, they did have an on-stage moment when they accepted the Best Rap Song GRAMMY Award for the "Savage" remix.

"Ever since I was little, I was like, you know what? One day I'm gonna grow up and I'm going to be like the rap Beyoncé" Megan said. The rapper went on to talk about how much she admires Beyoncé's work ethic and how her late mother would ask her, "Megan, what would Beyoncé do?" Now, Megan asks herself, "What would  Beyoncé do, but let me make it a little ratchet." Watch the touching speech in full above.

Allen Hughes' "The Defiant Ones" Wins Best Music Film | 2018 GRAMMY

Director Allen Hughes' four-part documentary takes home Best Music Film honors for its portrayal of the unlikely partnership that changed the music business

GRAMMYs/Jan 29, 2018 - 02:09 am

The team behind The Defiant Ones celebrated a big win for Best Music Film at the 60th GRAMMY Awards. The crew awarded include director Allen Hughes and producers Sarah Anthony, Fritzi Horstman, Broderick Johnson, Gene Kirkwood, Andrew Kosove, Laura Lancaster, Michael Lombardo, Jerry Longarzo, Doug Pray & Steven Williams.

In a year rife with quality music documentaries and series, the bar has been set high for this dynamic category. The Defiant Ones is a four-part HBO documentary telling the story of an unlikely duo taking the music business by storm seems better suited for fantastical pages of a comic book, but for engineer-turned-mogul Jimmy Iovine and super-producer Dr. Dre, it's all truth.The Defiant Ones recounts their histories, their tribulations and their wild success. These include first-hand accounts from those who were there in Iovine's early days, such as Bruce Springsteen and U2's Bono, as well as those on board when Dre and Iovine joined forces, such as Snoop Dogg and Eminem.

The competition was stiff as the category was filled with compelling films such as One More Time With Feeling, Two Trains Runnin', Soundbreaking, and Long Strange Trip.
