To close out this year’s edition of the Grammys, Jay-Z, Lil Wayne, DJ Khaled and more performed ‘God Did’. The annual show was held at the Crypto.com Arena in Los Angeles and saw a host of the most prominent contemporary acts take home awards.
After the evening of awards and performances, the all-star band of performers – which also included John Legend and Rick Ross – took to the makeshift stage in the street outside the arena to close proceedings in an eye-catching fashion. They performed on a long dining table, which some commentators have suggested appeared to take inspiration from the Biblical Last Supper.
“We did an eight-minute song on the Grammys,” Khaled told the cameras as the lengthy performance ended.
The evening was comprised of a host of stellar performances. Bad Bunny opened the show with a performance of two cuts from his wildly successful 2022 album Un Verano Sin Ti. The Jay-Z performance was also given a run for its money when a host of lauded stars, including LL Cool J and Queen Latifah, took part in a celebration of hip-hop’s 50th anniversary.
In a history-making ceremony, actor Viola Davis caught the eye when she achieved EGOT status with her Grammy win. Singer Kim Petras also paid tribute to the late producer SOPHIE, as she became the first trans woman to take home the award for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance.
In one of the most significant talking points from the evening, Beyoncé added another accolade to her extensive list when she became the most decorated artist at the Grammys. She surpassed classical artist Georg Solti’s record of 31 Grammys when she took home her 32nd award as Renaissance won the Best Dance/Electronic music album.
Elsewhere, Migos star Quavo paid tribute to his late nephew and bandmate Takeoff during the In Memoriam segment.
