Music Grammys Janelle Monae Cardi B Dolly Parton

Not watching the 2019 Grammy Awards live? We get it. We really do. But there’s one downside to deciding to do literally anything else besides watch the Grammys, and that’s not being able to follow what everyone is talking about on social media. You can catch up with the trending performances from this year’s Grammys below.

Janelle Monáe was at her pansexual art-funk best performing the Prince-influenced “Make Me Feel” in front of a cadre of dancers in latex Addicted To Love onesies and the famous pussy pants from her “Pynk” video. At one point, Monáe yelled out, ““let the vagina have a monologue!,” to give you a general idea of the energy in the room.

National treasure Dolly Parton was the subject of a musical tribute early on in the show, and she came out on stage accompanied by Best Country Album winner Kacey Musgraves, her goddaughter Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Maren Morris, and Little Big Town for a medley of hits that included “Jolene,” “9 to 5,” and a cover of Neil Young’s “After The Gold Rush.”

Best Rap Album winner Cardi B was channeling Parisian luxury both in the Birth Of Venus gown she wore on the red carpet and the Josephine Baker-inspired bodysuit she wore on the Grammys stage—both vintage Thierry Muglier, if you’re interested in that kind of thing—but the most decadent moment of the performance came as a cameraperson panned to Cardi B’s (now apparently on-again) husband Offset clearly enjoying the show.

Host Alicia Keys rolled out two grand pianos for her performance, a medley of everything from Drake to Kings of Leon, Coldplay, and Chicago rapper Juice WLRD that fit nicely into Keyes’ encouraging, positive “cool music teacher” vibe.

Lifetime achievement award winner and legendary Motown diva Diana Ross’ birthday is March 26, for the record.

Ever had a dream about kissing your twin? Then you’ll love the electric energy between St. Vincent and Best New Artist Dua Lipa performing St. Vincent’s “MASSEDUCTION” and Lipa’s “One Kiss” on the Grammys stage.

Other performers at the 2019 Grammy Awards included an Aretha Franklin tribute from Yolanda Adams, Fantasia, and Andra Day; Lady Gaga; Brandi Carlile; Camila Cabello; H.E.R.; Travis Scott; Chloe x Halle; Kacey Musgraves; Post Malone and Red Hot Chili Peppers; Dan + Shay; Shawn Mendes and Miley Cyrus; and a Motown tribute featuring Jennifer Lopez, of all people.
