Grammys 2015: Performances From Worst To Best

Hey, it’s over! We made it through! Sam Smith won everything! Iggy Azalea didn’t win anything! Beck busted through the wall like the Kool-Aid Man! Kanye, for a glorious split second, threatened to turn this into an interesting show! And amid all the drama, there were so, so many performances. Almost everyone brought an orchestra, or a gospel choir, or an orchestra and a gospel choir, and most of them had Very Serious Things to say about something or other. Precious few people seemed to be having fun on the Grammys stage, and only a select few seized their moment. We’ve got the definitive subjective rankings of last night’s Grammys telecast performances, not counting weird things like LL Cool J rapping a couple of bars of “Going Back To Cali” or that commercial break that Target, for no good reason, dedicated to an Imagine Dragons performance.
