Steven usually knows how to get the crowd going but we have to say it was pretty uncomfortable when he belted out one of Motown legend Smokey Robinson’s hit songs while sporting an awkward mustache during the 2014 Grammys on Jan. 26.
We can’t decide which was worse at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards — Steven Tyler‘s weird mustache or his disappointing on-stage rendition of Smokey Robinson‘s hit song “You’ve Really Got A Hold On Me.” What was he thinking?
Steven Tyler At Grammys — His Impromptu Singing & Odd Mustache Stuns Audience
The former Aerosmith frontman debuted his untamed mustache on Jan. 26 when he took the stage to present an award with Smokey. To add insult to injury, Steven began singing Smokey’s song and it didn’t sound good — not in the least.
Steven, 65, seemed to thing he could just belt out a lyric as if he were Jennifer Hudson, but he got it all wrong! In a crackly voice, Steven totally butchered the line “I don’t like you, but I love you,” and it only got worse from there.
Smokey, 73, was caught off guard when Steven began to sing and he just stood there, laughing. It was definitely an awkward moment!
When Steven finally finished, Smokey was still laughing. “Thank you, Steven,” he said. “That was beautiful.” Um, not exactly!
Steven Tyler Reveals Crush On Taylor Swift
Oh well, it was all in good fun and at least Steven seemed to be enjoying himself at the show. We hope he got a chance to hang out with his crush Taylor Swift backstage!
As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, Steven recently revealed that he was crushing on Taylor and thought she was hot!
“She’s blonde with all the hits,” he told Us Weekly. “Taylor Swift. She’s hot. More than that, she’s beyond talented. I have to write a song with her.”
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Do you like Steven’s new ‘stache? Let us know.
