During a very touching moment of the 2017 Billboard Music Awards, Imagine Dragons paid tribute to the late Chris Cornell. After frontman Dan Reynolds called the Soundgarden singer an ‘innovator,’ he asked everyone to honor Chris with a moment of silence.
Well, that performance by Imagine Dragons should make any skeptic a believer. The group rocked the 2017 Billboard Music Awards on May 21, lighting up the stage with a stomping performance of their new hit, ‘Believer!’
Just before the Billboard Music Awards ended, Imagine Dragons took the stage to slow things down and honor the late Ben E. King with a touching performance of ‘Stand By Me.’
Imagine Dragons are always amazing live, and the 2015 Billboard Music Awards were no exception. Not only did they take things down a notch by performing the classic balled, “Stand By Me,” but they also honored the late Ben E. King who sadly passed away just a few weeks earlier on April 30. So sweet.
Sure, the Beatles performed, and Beyonce redefined “Bootylicious,” but if you ask me the best performance of the Grammys on Jan. 26 was one of the most unlikely — when Kendrick and Imagine Dragons staged a live mashup of their songs.
As a huge Kendrick Lamarfan (he was robbed last night, even Macklemore knows it), I was a little weary about pairing him up with the alternative, drum-pounding rock band Imagine Dragonsat the Grammys on Jan. 26, but it turns out I was stupid to be a Doubting Thomas. Like, really stupid.
