The Best Ever Grammy Awards Performances

Last year

The 55th Annual Grammy Awards take place this weekend and as usual they’ll feature performances from some of the biggest stars in the world.

So this got us thinking. There have been lots of amazing Grammys performances over the years. So why not re-live a few of them?

In no particular order, these are our favourite Grammy Awards performances.

Keep checking this weekend for all our Grammy Awards coverage, thanks to Emeri Sparkling.

Adele:  Rolling In The Deep – 2012

Not only did she absolutely dominate the actual prize ceremony, Adele returned to the stage after suffering from throat problems and delivered an ovation worthy rendition of Rolling In The Deep.

Lady Gaga and Elton John - 2010

This was the moment that proved that Lady Gaga was not going to be a flash in the pan. After opening with a theatrical performance of Poker Face, she was joined by Elton John for a piano rendition of Speechless and Your Song.  

Michael Jackson - 1988

The King Of Pop has his big Grammy moment in 1988 with his performance of Man In The Mirror. Michael won 13 Grammys over the course of his solo career.

Pink, Christina Aguilera, Mya, Lil Kim: Lady Marmalade – 2002

Some of pop’s biggest stars came together to record this version of Lady Marmalade for the Moulin Rouge soundtrack, and they took to the stage for a bourdoir theme performance of their hit song.

Elton John and Eminem: Stan - 2001

An unlikely combination, but Elton John teamed up with Eminem for a performance of Stan back in 2001. And it was incredible!

Justin Bieber and Usher - 2011

Justin teamed up with his mentor Usher for an epic performance of some of their biggest songs. There’s plenty of dancing in this one – although we will admit vocally it might not be the most impressive performance on this list!

Whitney Houston:  I Will Always Love You - 1994

Whitney performed at the Grammys many times over the years, but her performance of I Will Always Love You was a showstopper.

Pink: Glitter In The Air – 2010

Australians are pretty familiar with Pink’s on stage acrobatics, but the rest of the world was amazed to see her floating in the air during her 2010 performance.
