Good morning! A lot happens in sports, even when you’re busy doing other non-sports-y stuff. In this case, you were probably watching The Grammys, and you probably want to relive the highs and the lows from Monday’s award show. So here are the top headlines and moments from yesterday, in case you missed anything while you were watching the premiere of Better Call Saul.
Gaga’s tribute to Bowie
Lady Gaga gave an incredible tribute performance to the late David Bowie. It is well-known that Bowie is one of Gaga’s biggest influences, and she paid homage to him by performing some of his biggest hits, including “Space Oddity,” “Changes,” “Ziggy Stardust,” “Suffragette City” and “Rebel Rebel.” Nile Rodgers joined Gaga on stage for “Fashion,” “Fame,” and “Let’s Dance” before ending with “Heroes.” Enjoy this incredible tribute:
Kendrick Lamar tore the house down with a powerful performance of “Alright” and “The Blacker the Berry” off his Grammy-winning album To Pimp A Butterfly. The rapper entered the stage in shackles and left the audience stunned with his politically-charged performance that closed with an image of Africa with the word “Compton” displayed on the video screen. Kendrick took home five awards, including Best Rap Album. Check out his inspiring performance here.
Adele falls flat
It was already going to be hard enough for Adele to follow Kendrick’s performance, but technical difficulties plagued the singer’s performance of “All I Ask” off her album 25. One of the microphones fell on the piano at the beginning of the performance and then sound issues arose throughout. But the ever-so-graceful Adele finished the performance strongly. Check it out here.
The piano mics fell on to the piano strings, that’s what the guitar sound was. It made it sound out of tune. Shit happens. X

Our must-see moment is the acceptance speech by the cast of “Hamilton,” which won the Grammy for Best Musical Theater Album. Lin Manuel-Miranda wrote a very nice poem that he recited:
Taylor Swift fires back at Kanye
A bonus must-see moment is Taylor Swift’s acceptance speech after winning Album of the Year for 1989. The clapback was too real as Swift took some subliminal shots at Kanye West. See for yourself:
Look cool every morning. Find out what you missed in the sports world while you were sleeping, and impress your friends and co-workers. We won’t tell them you actually turned off the awards show once you heard Rihanna wasn’t performing.
