The Best Performances At The 2017 Grammy Awards

So last night, the 59th Annual Grammy Awards went down (Justin & Dani have the full winner list here.)

But let’s talk about the PERFORMANCES… this year, was unreal.

 

Katy Perry gave us a politically charged performance of her new song “Chained To The Rhythm” ft. Skip Marley.

Wearing a pant suit (RE: Hilary Clinton), an arm badge that says “RESIST”, and breaking down a giant “wall”, it’s pretty clear Katy was here to make a point.

 

Of course you can’t talk about any award show without mentioning BeyoncΓ©. It’s just not natural.

Queen Bey graced the audience with a performance that was both dramatic and emotional. She performed (while pregnant… with twins) wearing 31 pieces of jewellery and at LEAST 32 graceful dancers.

Now let’s talk about Ed Sheeran. It’s no secret “Shape Of You” is a wicked song, and after years of other great music, we didn’t need proof that Ed Sheeran is in fact a very talented artist…

… but he gave it to us anyway.

 

Of course, if the Grammy’s didn’t have a Prince tribute, we’d all be throwing at the TV at the end of the night. Enter Bruno Mars and The Time.

I think the outfit says it all.

Fast Facts: Martin Scorsese Classic “Taxi Driver” Turns 41 Today

In 1976, Martin Scorsese gave us a chilling thriller that would forever be a classic (and a major boost for Robert De Niro)….

Taxi Driver.

 

To celebrate the 41st anniversary here’s some interesting facts about the movie:

 

  1. The script was written by Paul Schrader, and it was loosely based on his own experiences. After hitting a rough patch, Paul was living in his car, feeling pretty out of it and hadn’t talked to anyone in weeks. That’s when he wrote Taxi Driver.

  2. Hard to believe, but Robert De Niro was almost not cast. Instead the studio wanted to use Jeff Bridges, AND supposedly, Neil Diamond was after the role (yes… THAT Neil Diamond!). Can you imagine?!

  3. Harvey Keitel who played Sport (the creepy pimp), brought a REAL pimp he knew from Hell’s Kitchen in Manhattan (where he grew up), on set to help sell his role. Not sure how to feel about that one…

  4. Jodie Foster was only !!TWELVE!! when she was cast as child prostitute, Iris. The role was considered a wee bit inappropriate (no kidding) for a kid that young, so they had a social worker on set with her. She also had to spend 7 hours in therapy to prove she could handle it. Yikes.

Happy Birthday Taxi Driver!
