Memorable Grammy performances

Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z

It’s the only awards show that’s as much a concert as it is a parade of stars. So, who brought the goods Sunday night at the Grammys?

There were plenty of memorable moments, both solo performances and the duets and collaborations for which the Grammys are so famous.

Justin Timberlake made his much-anticipated – and, it turned out, sepia-toned – return to the Grammys, with help from Jay-Z, singing Suit & Tie and Pusher Love Girl. That came soon after Taylor Swift opened the show with a flamboyant Alice in Wonderland take on her hit We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together

Carrie Underwood, in a suddenly technicolor dress, belted out impressive renditions of Blown Away and Two Black Cadillacs. And Frank Ocean, the golden boy of this year’s Grammys, gave a hypnotic spin on his song Forrest Gump

Jack White and Kelly Clarkson also dazzled – he roared through and Love Interruption and Freedom at 21, while she offered poignant tributes to Patti Page and Carole King.

Then there was the all-star salute to Bob Marley, with, StingBruno Mars and Rihanna leading a rousing singalong – with everyone, on stage and off, seeming to join in. (People)
