Kendrick Lamar with Bono and The Edge: “XXX,” “American Soul,” “DNA” and “King’s Dead”

BamaEd: Kendrick Lamar started the show by scaring the old white folks thinking “60 Minutes” was on. He didn’t need Dave Chappelle or Bono and The Edge. He was powerful enough.

neverkneel: Kendrick is killing it!

Dynasty86: Give Kendrick that AOTY Grammy already!

Lady Gaga and Mark Ronson: “Joanne” and “Million Reasons”

M: LOL at Gaga, halfway through her performance be like “Bitches thought I wasn’t gonna sing ‘Million Reasons’ yet again?”

EmmyWinner: Gaga is slaying.

Sam Smith: “Pray”

Dynasty86: Sam looking and sounding all good.

Oscar Rodriguez: Sam Smith as lackluster as always.

Little Big Town: “Better Man”

Xtina: Honey, Little Big Town bored me. They really act as if Taylor Swift is some amazing songwriter, as evidenced by them announcing she wrote that crap.

Gary Clark Jr. and Jon Batiste: “Ain’t That a Shame” and “Maybellene”

OscarsSoWrong: Finally a performance that sounds good!

BamaEd: Loved the Chuck Berry tribute.

Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee: “Despacito”

OJODIAMANTE: Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee … standing ovation. What a party!!!!

Oscar Rodriguez: “Despacito” has been the best performance by a mile.

Childish Gambino: “Terrified”

LOVC: Childish Gambino gave the best performance so far.

Atypical: Would have liked to hear “Redbone” instead of this song.

BamaEd: I think Donald Glover made someone pregnant with that performance. Selfish me would have loved a Danny Pudi cameo at the end though. Troy and Abed in the morning!

Pink: “Wild Hearts Can’t Be Broken”

Xtina: Honey, I bet Pink will be in the air again. *Vomits*

cnmem10: Pink slayed and only in jeans. No big production; didn’t need 50 dancers. Talent there.

Bruno Mars and Cardi B: “Finesse”

OscarsSoWrong: Yes BRUNO!

BamaEd: WooHoo!! That was so much fun. Go Bruno and Cardi B!

Sting and Shaggy: “Englishman in New York” and “Don’t Make Me Wait”

Oscar Rodriguez: Shaggy?!

M: Sting bragging about his legal status feels a bit awkward in the current political atmosphere.

Rihanna and DJ Khaled featuring Bryson Tiller: “Wild Thoughts”

KaRol: Khaled’s presence on this stage was laughable.

Jays: Rihanna looked gorgeous, and that performance was everything. Can’t wait for her next era.

Maren Morris, Eric Church and Brothers Osborne: “Tears in Heaven”

James Otto Sweet Heart: Whose idea was it that Eric Church, Brothers Osborne, and Maren Morris sing a song that isn’t country? If that was the only way that they could get the performance slot, I would have told the Grammy Award show powers-that-be to bite me!

BenitoDelicias: The “Tears in Heaven” performance was a mess.

Kesha: “Praying”

Dynasty86: Kesha’s holding back tears…love all those ladies standing up there with her.

Jays: I sooo wanted to like that performance. The idea was there but the vocals were so off that it was distracting. Still love the song and thought she deserved to win tonight.

Elton John and Miley Cyrus: “Tiny Dancer”

BamaEd: Miley’s voice is fine enough I guess, but her performance … looks like she’s ready to crawl on that piano and start humping it. That just seems off.

Xtina: Cyrus looked nice, but sounded horrible.

Ben Platt and Patti LuPone: “Somewhere” and “Don’t Cry For Me Argentina”

Oscar Rodriguez: Ben Platt is teaching these little singers HOW. TO. SING.

Atypical: Ben Platt just sang his assss off!!! Yasss!


Chris Stapleton and Emmylou Harris: “Wildflowers”

LegendofMatt: Rest in peace Tom Petty. Good performance of “Wildflowers”!

JGibson: What a messy in memoriam! Who edited that????

Logic, Alessia Cara and Khalid: “1-800-273-8255”

Oscar Rodriguez: Alessia’s vocals are on point but the “1-800” VMA performance was better.

GusCruz: The tastelessness of placing this performance after remembering a man who committed suicide in order to have a “message” is appalling. Shameful.
