When Macklemore first released the stirring visuals for his “Glorious” video featuring Skylar Grey last July, fans were enamored with his thoughtful ode to his grandmother, who celebrated her 100th birthday in the video. In honor of his grandma, Helen Schott, Macklemore paid homage to his favorite girl during his “Glorious” performance at this year’s American Music Awards in Los Angeles on Sunday night (Nov. 19).
Clad in a soft peach-colored suit, Macklemore danced his way through his poignant verses, while Grey delivered the track’s empowering and played the piano. With a crew of back-up singers in tow, Macklemore and Grey’s lively performance was enough to make everyone in the audience clap their hands in unison.
To punctuate his heartfelt performance, Macklemore wished his grandmother a happy birthday before exiting the stage.
