The singer took the stage to perform “Everything I Wanted,” accompanied by her brother, Finneas O’Connell, and a moody set design that included a car that appeared to be crashed into a swamp, which complemented the brooding undercurrents of the tune and Eilish’s haunting vocals.

Pretty in pink! The songstress kicked things off with a performance of “Levitating,” rocking a pink ballgown, before she was joined by DaBaby, and the singer made a quick costume change into a glittery purple raincoat. Her second song, “Don’t Start Now,” brought out a third outfit — a shimmering pink two-piece, which she danced in surrounded by pink-clad back-up dancers in English mod-inspired numbers.
Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak

Reuniting onstage at this year’s show in the biggest way possible, Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak performed their smooth new single, “Leave the Door Open,” transporting fans back a few decades with their impressively retro style and tune.
This is the #GRAMMYs moment we needed from @taylorswift13! ✨ pic.twitter.com/dA7sHiOOv9
The singer was a vision as she performed “cardigan,” beginning with her laying in a striking forest setting and wowing in a blue and gold dress with a golden headdress. As she sang, it was revealed that she was infact performing on the roof of a small woodland shed, and she transitioned into a performance of “august” and “willow.”
She was joined by collaborators Aaron Dessner and Jack Antonoff, who worked with her on Folklore and Evermore. When teasing the performance she said having the two friends join her was “really exciting, because this has been an adventure that the three of us have gone on since the very beginning of quarantine and lockdown.”
