2015 Grammy Performances Ranked From Worst to Best
The evening began on a raucous note with Beyonce and 10 male singer-dancers taking liberties with "Fingertips," Wonder's first No. 1 single back in 1963, which segued into a duet with Ed Sheeran on "Jammin'." Then Gary Clark Jr. joined in, providing a power surge on "Higher Ground."
Highlights included Janelle Monae, India.Arie and Jill Scott bringing a slow boil to "As"; John Legend and Jennifer Hudson exquisitely handling their ballads; and Lady Gaga and the house band led by Greg Phillinganes tearing up "I Wish."
Usher & Stevie Wonder Perform 'If It's Magic' at Grammys
While all of the singers delivered wishes of love and thanks, Andrea Bocelli was the only one to note the difficulty of singing Wonder's songs. And he had one that, at least superficially, seems easy -- "I Just Called to Say I Love You."
"I have loved this song and when I decide to sing it, Jesus!" Bocelli said. "Many notes, many difficult things. I did my best to say I love you."
CBS will air the concert special Monday, Feb. 16 at 9 p.m. ET.
