Playing a piano draped in elaborate angel wings, Lady Gaga dedicated her performance of "Joanne" and "Million Reasons" to her deceased aunt whom her album was named after. As usual, she brought every ounce of her energy to the stage and made sure the audience was feeling just as much as she was.
Emotional ballads seemed to be the theme of the night. After a brutally public legal battle with her former producer and record label, Kesha landed on her feet in 2017 and took us on an emotional journey wit her album, Rainbow. Flanked by fellow musical legends and newcomers like Cyndi Lauper, Julia Michaels, Bebe Rexha, Andra Day, and Camila Cabello, she gave us another passionate performance of her soaring single, "Praying."
Giving us all a sense of deja vu, Patti LuPone took the stage by storm during a tribute to Andrew Lloyd Webber to remind the children how it's done. Belting "Don't Cry for Me Argentina," just like she did at the Grammys in 1981, LuPone reminded everyone that while she ages gracefully, her voice is timeless.
