GRAMMYS WENT DISCO / SUNDAY NIGHT FEVER
Jimi Westbrook, Kimberly Schlapman, Karen Fairchild, and Philip Sweet of Little Big Town,
Demi Lovato,  Andra Day, and Tori Kelly  perform onstage during The 59th Grammy Awards at Staples  Center on Feb. 12, 2017  in Los Angeles.

The Grammys went disco for a moment Sunday Night February  12,  2017 with a Bee Gees tribute led by quite the powerful vocalists.

Kicking off with the legendary group’s biggest hit, “Stayin’ Alive,” Demi Lovato led a glitter-filled montage of some of the Bee Gees best tunes.

Tori Kelly  continued the impressive talent with an electric guitar-amplified version of  “Tragedy,”  with Little Big Town then joining in for “How Deep Is Your Love” and Andra Day adding to the vibes with “Night Fever” – all while Barry Gibb proudly watched on.

After everyone got their chance to do the Bee Gees some serious justice for the 40th anniversary of Saturday Night Fever, all the tribute artists came together for one last rendition of “Stayin’ Alive.”

Who would’ve thought that 21st-century disco could sound so great?

 

ANOTHER POSTING  written by Jon Blistein 

Along with the Grammy Awards tribute, the Recording Academy and CBS will host a full concert special, “Stayin’ Alive: A Grammy Salute to the Music of the Bee Gees,” tomorrow February 14th.

Lovato, Kelly, Day and Little Big Town will all perform, along with Celine Dion, John Legend, Nick Jonas, Pentatonix and surviving Bee Gee Barry Gibb.

Of the performers in the Bee Gees tribute at the Grammy Awards, only Demi Lovato was up for any trophies, earning a nomination for Best Pop Vocal Album for her album Confident.
