STEPP ASIDE, WINNERS. The Grammy Awards have long belonged to performers and unexpected moments – and Sunday night’s show in Los Angeles was no different.
Homegirl Rihanna stunned the audience with an impressive performance of her new single FourFiveSeconds.
Dressed in a black pantsuit, it was just her, Kayne West and the legendary Sir Paul McCartney performing against a white screen, before it was pulled up for a simple grey, fabric covered stage.
Rihanna, in her fourth Grammys stage performance, took the lead, getting more singing time than Kanye while Sir Paul was just happy to play his guitar.
On the red carpet, Kanye spoke of the process of developing the single, saying he had been working on Rihanna’s album and with Sir Paul and things just fell into place.
He wouldn’t reveal when Rihanna’s album would be released, however. (NS)
