2013 Grammy Performances
Nokia Theatre L.A. Live
There’s no better way to entertain an entire award show audience filled with celebrities, musicians and music lovers everywhere than with live performances by some of today’s most talented artists.
This year's Grammys featured a variety of interesting duet pairings including Elton John and Ed Sheeran on “The A Team.”
Miguel and Wiz Khalifa teamed up for a new version of the Grammy-winning song, “Adorn” and Justin Timberlake made his return to music with two performances, “Suit & Tie” with Jay-Z and “Pusher Love”, that were broadcast on television in black and white.
Rihanna took part in two performances throughout the night: one for her song “Stay,” and a second time as part of a tribute to Bob Marley which featured Bruno Mars, Sting and Ziggy Marley.
Sting and Bruno Mars got audience members on their feet with "Locked Out of Heaven" and The Police's "Walking on the Moon."
Alicia Keys played drums during Maroon 5's "Daylight," and Levine joined the R&B songstress on her song, "Girl on Fire."
One of the evening's winners, Kelly Clarkson, paid tribute to Carole King and the late Patti Page at the ceremony, who were both Lifetime Achievement recipients at this year's Grammys.
Rock and roll entered the Grammys with Jack White's "Love Interruption" and "Freedom at 21," which received a standing ovation from the crowd.
T. Bone Burnett, Mavis, Staples Mumford & Sons and Brittany Howard of Alabama Shakes were among the stars who paid tribute to the late Levon Helm with a version of The Band's "The Weight."
Other performers included Carrie Underwood, Fun and Frank Ocean.
The evening closed with a performance by LL Cool J, Chuck D, Travis Barker, Z-Trip and Tom Morello.
