The 58th Grammy Awards kick off tonight! Though there is little rock presence on the performance side of tonight’s ceremony, Lady Gaga is set to pay tribute to pop culture icon, Starman, visionary, and rock star- the late David Bowie.
David Bowie passed away January 10 of this year at the age of 69. The legacy left behind is not just music, but a work of art. The pop star, Lady Gaga, must be feeling the pressure today to do the performance justice. While I have carefully combed through my brain to weigh in on who else could do an amazing performance, I must hand it to Lady Gaga. I am confident she will not only honour him, but also give a show stopping performance. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t sitting here wondering what she is going to wear tonight. After all, Bowie’s eclectic style was part of who he was as a performer and the same goes for Gaga.
I am looking forward to her tribute tonight the most, but I’m also curious about the rock genre for tonight’s award ceremony.
Here are the nominees for Best Rock Album
Also, can’t forget Best Rock Performance
