Also: Bruno Mars, Rihanna, Coldplay, Taylor Swift, The Beach Boys
Best: The Band Perry, Blake Shelton and Glen Campbell
Twitter was a good place to find Grammy Night Snark, but a few moments cut through the sarcasm and earned only sincerity, particularly Jennifer Hudson, Adele and the three-part tribute to Glen Campbell, featuring The Band Perry, Blake Shelton and Mr. Campbell himself. The songs -- "Gentle On My Mind," "Southern Nights" and "Rhinestone Cowboy" -- were beautifully performed and the crowd was on its feet and singing along throughout. Even if you didn't know the backstory -- Campbell is on his last tour and suffering from Alzheimer's -- it was a triumphant and fitting tribute. Knowing Campbell's story and witnessing how vital his talent still is, only made it more timeless.
