It’s official: James Bay and Tori Kelly are perfection! The two Best New Artist nominees rocked the stage at the 2016 Grammy Awards with a stunning performance of ‘Let It Go’ and more! Click through for the details!
How soulful and stunning were Tori Kelly and James Bay? Both artists were nominated for Best New Artist at the 58th annual Grammy Awards on February 15, but they shared the stage together for one special performance as collaborators. Tori and James each took turns performing their hits, and it was absolutely beautiful.
We’re having trouble calming down; this performance was so breathtaking. It stood out in particular from the other, amazing Grammys performances because it was just Tori and James up there, nothing more. They simply stood in a circular platform in the sea of audience members, facing each other as they both strummed acoustic guitars.
They started out with a slow, sexy rendition of James’ gorgeous song “Let It Go,” Tori lending her vocals to his amazing hit. They transitioned seamlessly into Tori’s sweet, sad song “Hollow,” which they also did acoustically. From there, the stakes were upped. Tori of course has an incredible voice, but her belting has never been quite this powerful before! In our eyes, they’re both worthy of the award, but we’re dying to know now how the Grammys are supposed to pick who’s the Best New Artist after that!
Really, Tori already won the night when she showed up to the awards show wearing a bright green, one-shouldered gown, and perfectly retro hair. Her gown was dramatic but poppy, and her blonde locks were done up in old school pin curls. Love it!
