The producer, Clive Davis, throws an annual party the night before the awards show, and it always draws a whole host of big name guests and performers. This year’s party saw Beck take centre stage with Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic, and Pat Smear as they ran through the Bowie classic The Man Who Sold The World.
The performance from Beck and the surviving members of Nirvana was the opening song of the night and kicked off proceedings on a high note, while another Bowie cover brought the party to a close as Adam Lambert and Jack Antonoff sung Let’s Dance.
The party occurred the night before the Grammy’s which was hosted by rap icon LL Cool J earlier today. The main show drew performances from massive names like The Weeknd and Kendrick Lamar, which you can watch here. While it also featured Lady Gaga’s own performance in the honour of the late Bowie.
Last year Beck was a big winner at the Grammy’s as he won three awards for his latest album Morning Phase. Amongst the three awards he won was the Album of the Year, which saw Kanye West infamously nearly crash his acceptance speech. The rapper later criticised Beck before again promoting Beyonce as the worthy winner saying Beck needed to “respect artistry”. Despite having nine studio albums to his name, Kanye claimed not to have known the singer- a claim which he later apologised for.
Meanwhile, Dave Grohl’s return behind the drums was the first time since December last year where the Foo Fighters front man starred on The Muppets where he tested his skills against Animal in a “drum off”.
