This year, Eilish counted two more Grammys to her haul, achieving Song of the Year and Best Song Written for Visual Media for “What Was I Made For?,” from Barbie. She performed the track with Finneas while wearing a green dress, tweed jacket, and pink head scarf—a nod to a vintage Barbie doll from the mid-’60s.
Billy Joel yielded to the Grammys stage to performed his new song “Turn the Lights Back On” before closing the ceremony with the 1980 cut “You May Be Right.”
Brandy Clark was in the running for six awards, ultimately winning her first-ever Grammy, in the Best Americana Performance category, for “Dear Insecurity.” She performed the song with SistaStrings—watch it on the Grammys website.
Burna Boy performed a combination at the ceremony, With tracks “On Form” and “City Boys” before bringing out 21 Savage and Brandy for “Sittin’ on Top of the World.” In the end, he was shut out of the four categories in which he was nominated.
Dua Lipa opened the ceremony with a medley of the new song “Training Season,” Barbie hit “Dance the Night,” and the Tame Impala–-produced “Houdini.” Her seemingly high-risk performance involved crawling around a metal jungle gym clad in black leather. The two categories in which she was nominated—Song of the Year and Best Song Written for Visual Media—eventually went to her Barbie comrade Billie Eilish.
Fantasia Barrino took the stage for a lively cover of Tina Turner’s “Rolling on the River” as part of the In Memoriam segment. At one point, she stalked into the crowd in search of a “pretty lady who doesn’t mind moving her hips,” before picking out Dua Lipa for an impromptu dance.
