We love a lot of things about the Grammys: the fashion, the spectacle, the awards, and the celebrity of it all. But, let’s be honest here, the real reason why we plop on our couch for three hours and watch the Grammys is for the performances.

Every year the suits assemble some of music’s greatest talents to perform and they usually end up putting on some of the most epic shows you’ll ever see.

You see, artists aren’t stupid. They know that millions of people will be watching, and they know that they can’t half-step with their sh*t.
