Kanye West just performed “Only One” at the Grammys and as you’d expect, it was an emotional rendition of his song with Paul McCartney. It brought back fond memories of “Hey Mama” at the Grammys, which I also had to include down below.
I enjoyed the performance itself as well: ‘Ye’s live autotune sounded great and his movements within the only one spotlight from under him were beautifully captured by the CBS cameras. I liked the shots from below ‘Ye’s eye level especially. The only detracting thing I have on the performance had nothing to do with Kanye. After he made his swift exit off stage and off camera, the show was quickly moved to the next presenters: Miley Cyrus & Nicki Minaj, as the beat trailed off. It needed more time to breathe, not Miley’s voice interrupting as they introduced Madonna. I wonder lowkey if that’s what Kanye thought too.
ICYMI, enjoy the performance above and watch ‘Ye come back out for “FourFiveSeconds” here.
