Shawn Mendes Miley Cyrus Sang Hell Out Ofin My Bloodto Open Grammys
As far as awards-show performances go, Shawn Mendes is a metronome. He might Miley showed up after the first chorus, right as the song picked up in intensity, and took the second verse and some chorus harmonies. The pair looked so at ease together, like they'd always been meant to sing this together. For Cyrus, it seemed like a continuation of what she brought to Chris Cornell's tribute show at the Forum in Inglewood last month — which is to say, raw vocal power over big guitars and drums.ROBYN BECK/AFP/Getty Images
Mendes is up for Song of the Year (for this one, which has become his signature song) and was also nominated for Best Pop Vocal Album, which he lost to Ariana Grande's Sweetener . Still, the night is young and full of surprises. Who knows what could happen next!
