Stage performances were reasonable this year with Taylor Swift opening the show with “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together” (Ya, she was good). There was also Miguel’s brief performance of “Adorn,” which he began in the aisle, playing keyboard, before moving up to the stage. Kelly Clarkson blazed through a medley of “Tennessee Waltz” and “(You Make Me Feel Like a) Natural Woman,” in honor of the Lifetime Achievement award winners Patti Page and Carole King. Justin Timberlake performed a flashy retro number. The screen literally went into black and white nostalgic mode for his single “Suit and Tie.” justin  There was a tribute to Bob Marley by Bruno Mars who played his new single, “Locked Out of Heaven,” and Rihanna, (possibly the night’s best performer) , did a fast version of Marley’s “Could You Be Loved.” The tribute sounded awesome !

Now moving onto what you guys might have been possible waiting for.
