The Grammys Bust Out Memorable Performances Galore

The Grammys may seem like one of the longest shows of Award Season, but last night they mixed it up with some exciting performances. The show kicked off with U2 starring Bono, but the absence of Chris Brown and Rihanna was quickly felt. Justin Timberlake, Al Green, Keith Urban and Boyz II Men all stepped in to form a hodge podge second performance of the night while the young couple dealt with assault allegations and drama. Total highlights included Jay-Z on stage with Chris Martin and the "Swagger Like Us" performance with incredibly pregnant MIA. They looked like they were having so much fun. While Robert Plant and Alison Krauss took home some of the biggest awards John Mayer and Coldplay took home statues too — check out all the winners here.

Gwyneth looked hot introducing Radiohead while Taylor Swift and Miley Cyrus sweetly collaborated to sing Swift's new single. Kanye and Estelle sounded fabulous before similarly named Adele won Best New Artist. Jennifer Hudson left the room choked up during her acceptance speech and strong performance. Keith Urban looked handsome on stage a few times — including the performance with John Mayer, BB King and Buddy Guy as a tribute to Bo Diddley — in between moments beside Nicole Kidman in their seats. The Jonas Brothers took the stage with Stevie Wonder just one of the pairings that kept this year's Grammys interesting.

It was a good show overall. I liked most of the performances. Radiohead were by far the best performers of the evening.

I saw the performance jenniferg and my best friend and I could not stop cracking up at how bad she was! She was doing these weird hand gestures and was terrible while Taylor was much better and she pretty much carried her throughout the song!

I only saw a couple of the performances online, but from what I saw: M.I.A. is seriously the coolest mom to be ever; Jennifer Hudson is unbelievably talented, I´m amazed she didn´t break down and cry in the middle of the song; and last but not least, why on earth is Miley Cyrus famous again? Did any of you see her "singing" with Taylor Swift? She is ridiculously famous for not having on ounce of talent in her bones...

My mistake! The Grammys are on British TV tonight in just under an hour! Can't wait :)

also, it kind of seemed like a 3 1/2 hour concert, there were only like 5 or 6 awards given out. either way it was great!!

loveleo, i thought the same thing with stevie wonder and the jonas brothers. that he was made to actually sing one of their songs made me feel slightly embarassed, lol. i also thought the performances were awesome!! my fave had to be justin and t.i., radiohead(that marching band was amazing!!) and coldplay with jay-z.

amofoz-I assumed that Estelle and Kanye did the performance last minute due to Chris Brown and Rihanna dropping out, thus taking their spot..I may be wrong, because their performance was low-key and seemed to be done last minute..don't know! My gosh, Jen Hudson's performance made me tear up-it was so powerful and emotional, she's such a strong woman, bless her. And I did love MIA, she's a crazy girl for performing when it was her due date, and she was full of energy..I was a little worried for her! But loved her with Jay-Z and the rest of them. I have a new found crush on Chris Martin

Was it just me or did it seem that Estelle forgot the lyrics?? Kanye West even looked like he was intently looking at her mouthing the words.

I thought Katie Perry was horrible. It seemed like a performance at a high school talent show. She didn't sing well and looked uncomfortable on stage. I had never seen her perform before and my expectations weren't too high...but they were higher than that! So sad about Rhianna and Chris. Yikes.

fleurfairy, looking at Nicole Kidman depresses me. She used to be unbelievably gorgeous; I can't help but feel that she would still be stunning if she had allowed herself to age naturally. I didn't watch much of the Grammys, but what I did see (Coldplay and the song with Keith Urban and John Mayer) was pretty good. Gwyneth looks gorgeous.

Loved the Jamie Foxx and Co. performance. I also thought Coldplay was amazing. Gwyneth looked gorgeous as usual. Nicole Kidman looks like a ugly wax figure. She has really ruined her looks.
