One of the best performances of the 55th Annual Grammy Awards Sunday night at the Staples Center in L.A. featured two of our favorite entertainers.
In the interest of self-disclosure, we’ll admit we dig Alicia Keys and have a HUGE crush on Maroon 5 rocker Adam Levine.
‘The Voice’ coach started out the performance with ‘Daylight’ followed by a duet with Alicia as they rocked ‘Girl On Fire’ … an amazing piece of musical artistry that had the audience up on their feet and singing along.
Keys, who feels most comfortable sitting at the piano, showed off her girl power by playing the drums. She later tweeted, “Just got off stage! SO blessed to have performed in this room! I remember the first time! #GRAMMYs #memories”
Levine tweeted prior to the show, “Extremely excited for the @THEGRAMMYs tonight! Performance is going to be EPIC. And I kinda really wanna win one. Ok? Just one will be fine.”
Maroon 5 was up for Best PopDuo/Group Performance for ‘Payphone’ with Wiz Khalifa and Best Pop Vocal Album for ‘Overexposed.’ Unfortunately the awards went to Gotye featuring Kimbra and Kelly Clarkson.
The Keys-Levine Grammys performance received mixed reviews, with the word “bland” being used by some. Jay-Z and Beyonce showed the entertainers some love by bobbing their heads appreciatively to the beat when a camera caught their reaction mid-song.
Check it out and let us know what you think? Did show host LL Cool J get it right when he promised the audience that the performance was going to be “literally on fire”?
