GRAMMYs 2015: Performers Live Blog

February 08, 2015 by Alyssa & Liz

Grammys 2015

Follow along with Vivid Seats as we cover the GRAMMYs 2015 performances on Feb. 8, beginning at 7 p.m. CT!

You can follow our GRAMMYs 2015 winners live blog to see which performers took home the night's biggest awards.

10:27 p.m.: Beyoncé leads us into the final performance of the night singing the gospel classic "Take My Hand, Precious Lord." Golden Globe winners John Legend and Common take the stage immediately after to perform another gospel-inspired song: "Glory" from the 2014 film "Selma." It's a fittingly moving end to the GRAMMYs 2015 from three of music's most inspiring figures.


10:05 p.m.: Beck and Chris Martin of Coldplay share the stage to perform "Heart Is a Drum," just moments after Beck's "Morning Phase" wins Album of the Year.

9:49 p.m.: Sia's "Chandelier" music video is being recreated on stage by Kristen Wiig and Maddie Ziegler! It's one of the more bizarre performances of the night, but also the best choreography we've seen. Was that Sia hiding back in the corner?


9:36 p.m.: It's great to see Colombian rock star Juanes deliver the GRAMMYs' first-ever Spanish-language performance. It's been a long time coming for the singer-songwriter, who has won two GRAMMY Awards and an impressive 20 Latin GRAMMYs!

9:31 p.m.: Everyone's favorite newcomer of the night, Sam Smith, is finally performing! He could be singing a capella and still amaze us, but his vocals with backing orchestration, Mary J. Blige, and a full choir is absolutely breathtaking. It's clear he has a long, successful career ahead of him!

9:21 p.m.: Our excitement can hardly be contained as Kanye West, Rihanna, and Paul McCartney come on stage to perform Rihanna's new single, Four Five Seconds." We love that the trio is matching again, just like they were in the song's minimalist music video that dropped in late January. We can't wait for West and Rihanna's new solo albums to come out later this year!


9:19 p.m.: We get a double-dose of country as Best New Artist nominee Brandy Clark sings her 2013 single "Stripes" with country music veteran and two-time GRAMMY winner Dwight Yoakam.

9:14 p.m.: Eric Church delivers a live rendition of his Platinum-certified single "Give Me Back My Hometown." The North Carolina native was nominated for four awards at tonight's ceremony. It was also his first time performing during "Music's Biggest Night."


9:05 p.m.: Usher gives a beautiful performance of Stevie Wonder's "If It's Magic," just before the Motown star himself comes out on stage. Later this week, on Feb. 10, many other current music icons (including Lady Gaga, Ed Sheeran, Ariana Grande, and many more) will also honor Wonder at an all-star GRAMMY tribute in L.A. 

8:58 p.m.: We've been waiting all night to see Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga take the stage! Two of the best performers active today, Gaga and Bennett won the GRAMMY for Best Traditional Pop Vocal Album earlier tonight. Their performance is such a fun throwback to American jazz stars of the past--and it's the most adorable collaboration we've seen yet!
See the duo for yourself live this summer during the ampitheater-heavy Lady Gaga and Tony Bennett tour.


8:49 p.m.: Katy Perry is absolutely stunning as she sings "By the Grace of God," the final track off her 2013 album, "Prism." It's a wildly different performance than her Super Bowl halftime show, but Perry is one pop star that never fails to surprise her fans.

8:35 p.m.:  Pharrell performs his hit "Happy" with Hans Zimmer and Chinese pianist Lang Lang, giving a new, contrasting "dark vs. light" theme to the normally peppy song.


8:25 p.m.: Hozier lets his long locks down for a powerful performance of "Take Me to Church," which is nominated for Song of the Year. Legendary Eurythmics vocalist Annie Lennox comes out halfway through the song, and then launches into an incredible cover of Screamin' Jay Hawkins' "I Put a Spell on You." It's great to see Hozier's guitar skills on display behind Lennox's amazing vocals!

8:16 p.m.: We love it whenever "The Voice" judges team up for a song! Gwen Stefani looks stunning in a floor-length red gown as she joins Maroon 5 to perform "My Heart Is Open."

8:11 p.m.: Jeff Lynne, one of George Harrison's The Traveling Wilburys band mates, gets on stage to perform one of our favorite ELO songs, "Evil Woman." Sheeran comes back to join Lynne for a rendition of ELO's upbeat, feel-good tune, "Mr. Blue Sky."

8:06 p.m.: Two acclaimed singer-songwriters, Ed Sheeran and John Mayer, team up with The Roots' Questlove to perform Sheeran's most recent hit, "Thinking Out Loud." It's one of the cuts from his Album of Year-nominated 2014 release, "x!"

7:49 p.m.: Madonna performs "Living for Love," the lead track off her forthcoming album, "Rebel Heart," which is due out on March 6. We're loving the matador-inspired dance sequence and the return of her gospel choir as back-up! Here's hoping she'll announce a supporting tour for 2015.


7:44 p.m.: Kanye West is performing his first collaboration with Paul McCartney, the lullaby-like "Only One." West has stated the song is written from the perspective of his late mother, Donda. Spike Jonze directed the music video, which features West's daughter, North.


7:31 p.m.: Miranda Lambert is looking positively regal tonight. The reigning "Queen of Country Music" is performing "Little Red Wagon," a cut off her 2014 album, "Platinum." It's obvious she's on a hot streak, pulling some fierce energy from her ongoing Certified Platinum Tour.


7:22 p.m.: In the first GRAMMY collaboration of the night, Tom Jones and Jessie J team up for a powerful duet of The Righteous Brothers classic, "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'." We need a Lady Gaga/Tony Bennett-style album from these two!

7:18 p.m.: We're loving Ariana Grande's toned-down performance of "Just a Little Bit of Your Heart" off her sophomore album "My Everything." She's reminding us why she's nominated for Best Pop Vocal Album this year!

Ariana Grande GRAMMYs performance


7:01 p.m.: Australian rock outfit AC/DC is kicking things off right at the GRAMMYs 2015. The band will sound just as amazing when it headlines Coachella this April!
