Hot Or Not: Frank Ocean’s Grammy Performance
The Grammy Awards are always a hot button topic once the show wraps up. Everything from performances to who wore what is discussed on a variety of media outlets. Social media lights up with comments from everyone on just about everything Grammy related. It’s evident that the Grammy Awards are the biggest music award show of the year. With that being said, I’d like to focus on one artist’s performance in particular: Frank Ocean.
Frank Ocean has been the music industry’s darling ever since he broke onto the scene. As he jumped off of our music blogrolls and into real life courtesy of an excellent debut album and a bold proclamation that he is a bi-sexual man living in a macho hip hop world, Ocean’s legend seemed to double in size. However, as courageous and innovative as he has been in the studio, his live performance has oftentimes left much to be desired. So, when Ocean took to the stage to perform “Forrest Gump” at the Grammys, everyone was curious if the shy New Orleans-born singer would have a breakout performance.
After his showing, Twitter lit up with mixed reviews about his performance. Some loved it because of the idea and the fact that Ocean would perform a song that clearly refers to his desire for another man. Others weren’t too keen about his off key singing. What are your thoughts?
