Watch Lizzo Deliver Electrifying Performances of "About Damn Time" and "Special" | 2023 GRAMMYs
The pop star offered dazzling renditions of two hits from her fourth album, 'Special,' which earned Lizzo her second Album of the Year nomination.
Very few people can inspire a room the way Lizzo can — and she proved that on the 2023 GRAMMYs stage.
Lizzo performed two songs from her Album Of The Year-nominated LP Special, starting with an a cappella burst of "About Damn Time," a celebration of self-love. She then quickly transitioned to bringing everyone to “church” via her album’s anthemic title track.
"In case nobody told you today/ You're special,” she sang, surrounded by a group of black-and-gold robe-clad backup singers on the minimalist stage. And when Lizzo reached the vibrato peak of her vocal delivery, the spiritual truth of her message reached an equal height.
"About Damn Time" has already earned a double-platinum certification by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA) since its April 2022 debut, and spent two weeks at the top of the Billboard Hot 100. "Special," meanwhile, seems poised to have its own turn in the spotlight, its uplifting message like a ray of sunshine.
The performance comes in the midst of a massive night for Lizzo, with nominations in a variety of categories, including Album Of The Year and Best Pop Vocal Album, as well as Record Of The Year, Song Of The Year and Best Pop Solo Performance for "About Damn Time."
