Grammys 2018: Watch Logic, Alessia Cara, Khalid Perform '1-800-273-8255'

Logic, Alessia Cara and Khalid performed a poignant, socially conscious version of their collaborative hit “1-800-273-8255” at the 2018 Grammy Awards. The trio added a real-life urgency to the track, filling the stage with a group of suicide survivors and family members of suicide victims.

Logic and Cara opened the song facing each other on two platforms before uniting center-stage, with Khalid joining for his vocal showcase at the end. Logic ended the performance with a passionate speech praising inclusivity and denouncing barriers. “Bring us your tired, your poor and any immigrant who seeks refuge,” he declared, concluding with a timely note on immigration. 

“1-800-273-8255,” which earned a nomination for Song of the Year, is named after the real phone number for the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, which offers free and confidential assistance to people in distress. The single highlights Logic’s third studio album, Everybody.

Suicide prevention is an important cause for the rapper. In September, he teamed with Metallica, former Nirvana bassist Krist Novoselic and pop singer Halsey to participate in a newly launched mental health awareness campaign, “I’m Listening.” 

Both Cara and Khalid were nominated for Best New Artist at this year’s ceremony. Khalid’s debut LP, 2017’s American Teen, was up for Best Urban Contemporary Album, and Cara’s collaborative track with Zedd, “Stay.” was contending for Best Pop Duo/Group Performance.

See Cardi B, Hillary Clinton Mock Donald Trump in 'Corden' Skit at Grammys 2018

James Corden auditioned a group of celebrities – including Cardi B, DJ Khaled and Hillary Clinton – for the chance to make a spoken-word version of Michael Wolff’s Trump administration tell-all Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House during an amusing skit at the Grammys on Sunday.

Corden set up the segment by noting that numerous politicians have won Grammys over the years in the Best Spoken Word Album category. “We know that our current President does love winning awards, and the good news is, he may just be the subject of next year’s winner,” Corden said. He then brought a series of star singers and rappers into the studio to read portions of Fire and Fury aloud.

John Legend, Cher and Snoop Dogg all audition for the spoof audio book, but it’s Cardi B who truly shines. After reading a passage about how Trump likes to go to bed early with a cheeseburger, she seems genuinely shocked. “I can’t believe this,” she exclaims. “This is how he lives his life?!” DJ Khaled follows Cardi B, interrupting his reading for one of his famous asides – “another one!” – and bursts of air-horn.

Clinton gets the final word, somberly reading a passage about how Trump loves to eat at McDonalds. “That’s the one,” Corden says. Clinton appears very pleased. “The Grammy’s in the bag?” she asks. “In the bag,” Corden replies. 

Fire and Fury became an instant hit thanks to its revealing details about Trump’s 2016 campaign – and the news that Trump didn’t want the volume to come out. In January, The New York Times reported that Wolff’s publisher had already received orders for over 1 million copies of the book.

Grammys 2018: Watch U2 Perform in Front of Statue of Liberty

U2 delivered a politically charged version of “Get Out of Your Own Way” at the 2018 Grammy Awards, braving the cold to perform outside with the Statue of Liberty looming majestically behind them. The band pre-recorded their performance Friday night on a barge in the Hudson River. 

The proximity of the Statue of Liberty helped drive home the call-to-arms nature of “Get Out of Your Own Way,” which includes dire warnings about the state of democracy. “The face of liberty’s starting to crack,” Bono sang. “She had a plan up until she got smacked in the mouth.” Adam Clayton’s chugging bass line was the engine pushing the song forward, while the Edge played his usual uplifting riffs on guitar and Larry Mullen Jr. added emphatic punctuation on his cymbals. 

At the end of the performance, Bono picked up a megaphone to announce, “blessed are the bullies, for one day they will have to stand up to themselves.” The performance ended with the singer raising his megaphone in the air, striking a pose that mimicked the Statue behind him. 

“Get Out of Your Own Way” appears on the band’s chart-topping 2017 LP, Songs of Experience, which isn’t eligible for any awards at this year’s ceremony as it arrived after the Grammys’ September 30th cut-off date. The record, a companion piece and spiritual successor to 2014’s Songs of Innocence, ranked Number Three on Rolling Stone‘s 50 Best Albums of 2017 list.

Throughout their career, U2 have earned 47 Grammy nominations and won 22. They most recently earned a Best Rock Album nod for Songs of Innocence in 2015, and The Joshua Tree entered the Grammy Hall of Fame the previous year. 

U2 spent much of 2017 playing arenas on their massive anniversary tour celebrating 1987 blockbuster The Joshua Tree. On May 2nd in Tulsa, the quartet will kick off another round of tour dates – a sequel to their 2015 Innocence + Experience trek.
