Lizzo’s 2020 Grammys Performance Recap
Lizzo took the stage at the top of the show, stating that “Tonight is for Kobe,” in reference to the late NBA star. She began her performance with “Cuz I Love You.”
She wore a black, shiny dress with a full band behind her. She finished the song on a high note as a ballerina took the stage, dancing to a piano-led rendition of another song.
Lizzo then went into “Truth Hurts,” after a costume change into a neon-laced bodysuit. The ballerina-clad dancers behind her were joined by women in bodysuits that matched Lizzos, delivering energetic performances around the board.
Lizzo took this time to pull out her flute, playing a solo over the instrumental behind her before going right back into singing the song.
She finished her performance, saying “Welcome to the Grammys, B**ch!” as she hugged some of her dancers. She seemed to be crying at the end of the performance.
