Blog King, Mass Appeal
LOS ANGELES — Call it irony. But the 62nd Annual Grammy Awards went down Sunday night in Los Angeles at the Staples Center — the arena Kobe Bryant called home for two decades. So it was certainly no surprise melancholic viewers were treated to a myriad of encomiums that were dedicated to the late NBA legend. Lizzo got the gaiety started with a heartfelt monologue in Kobe’s honor and Alicia Keys, who emceed the event, devoted multiple panegyrics throughout the night. Other highlights include Usher’s musical tribute to Prince which included a medley of “When Doves Cry” and “Kiss.”
"Tonight is for Kobe."
Lizzo opened the Grammy Awards with a performance of "'Cuz I Love You.”

Aerosmith and Run-D.M.C. also rocked the audience with a contemporary rendition of “Walk This Way.” Moments later, lesbian talk show host Ellen DeGeneres introduced rapper Lil Nas X prior to his performance of “Old Town Road” then lauded his unabashed decision to come out gay.

Can’t lie. I didn’t know half of them mothaf*ckas!
