Kendrick Lamar and Imagine Dragons Grammy Performance

Normally I don’t watch the Grammy’s, I’d wait until the next day to see certain performances. This year I decided to watch the Grammy’s because of some big names they had there. Beyonce MIGHT have been one of them. Anyways, I really am glad that I actually watched the Grammy’s all the way through. Being on twitter while an award show is on…is just the beesknees, try it one day…ya just might like it, A LOT!

Ok, so back to these performances there were amazing and boring performances, but the only one that stood out to me and gave me chills was the Kendrick Lamar and Imagine Dragons performance. Now, I don’t know much about Kendrick Lamar but I know and just La-La-LOVE Imagine Dragons. <3 that much love :*D imagine-dragons-kendrick-lamar

At first I questioned WHY these two music artists would team up and do a mashup of their songs, but lemmetellya….

Okay, of the night…not like EVER. Enough of my rambling, check it out!

The energy was felt all the way in my bedroom where I was doing the little sidestep dance they were doing. #DontJudgeMeDammit

Nor did Kendrick merely hit his marks when it came time for him to perform. Instead, he offered up his own reminder of just how wily and amorphous he is compared to virtually any other artist competing, even in futility, in any kind of industry popularity contest. Rather than simply come out and rap, maybe surrounded by a set evoking his hometown of Compton or with a guest rapper who once managed to find the Academy’s favor, he teamed up with Imagine Dragons, one of rock’s most successful and least acclaimed bands, to try and reinvent a smash (“Radioactive”) that has already worn a groove in pop’s collective consciousness. (Plus perform part of his own ”m.A.A.D City.”) Kendrick doesn’t need an official endorsement. He just wants the opportunity to keep proving himself.
