Press Review – Grammy 2022: from Zelensky to Lady Gaga, the most exciting moments

The awards ceremony for the 64th Grammy Awards, originally planned for Los Angeles in January and then postponed due to Covid, took place last night at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas.
It was the year of Jon Batiste, Olivia Rodrigo, Foo Fighters and Silk Sonic.

Among the evening’s performers were Silk Sonic, Rodrigo, Lil Nas X, BTS, Brandi Carlile, Lady Gaga (with a beautiful and emotional tribute to Tony Bennett), Jon Batiste, Nas, Chris Stapleton, who won the country categories and Billie Eilish, who wore a T-shirt with the face of Taylor Hawkins, the Foo Fighters drummer who died of a heart attack on 25 March in a hotel in Bogota, Colombia, where the band was on tour in South America. Taylor Hawkins was also remembered with a video montage.

Moreover, during the ceremony, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky intervened with a video message: ‘Fill the silence with your music. Fill it today, tell our story. Support us in any way you can. Any way you can, but not silence. And then peace will come’. This video message was followed by a tribute to Ukraine by John Legend, who presented the new Free with Mika Newtown and Lyuba Yakimchuk.

The Glass Animals were unable to attend the ceremony due to a positive Covid test.
