In the event that it’s not music’s greatest night, it’s music’s briefest, which means a ton. However, Thursday night’s broadcast, communicate live on Fox from L.A’s. Microsoft Theater, had significantly more letting it all out than that—like Kacey Musgraves enlisting Chris Martin as her piano player, Alicia Keys utilizing 8-year-old child Egypt as her pianist, and Garth Brooks blending with a superfan in high places, performing artist Chris Pratt.

I need to state thank you on the off chance that you just watched the show on Netflix on your love seat in your home.”

Likewise not close by but rather evoking shouts in any case with their taped addresses were BTS, who won for fan armed force of the year, and Cardi B, hip-bounce victor of the year, who flicked the trophy with her tongue.
Musgraves was appreciating a minute where, perhaps interestingly on an entertainment expo, she was the most sultry, most au currant live entertainer of the night, on account of having quite recently won the top collection of the year prize at the Grammys only barely a month earlier. As she did on that other broadcast, Musgraves played out her most recent single, “Rainbow,” however this time with more explicit set plan — she sat roosted on a goliath rainbow — and with an unexpected VIP accompanist as Coldplay’s frontman.
