No, wait: now we’re off in “M.A.A.D. City” territory. That was fast!
“M.A.A.D. City” is about Lamar’s corrupt upbringing in Compton. This is pure, goes-down-easy, head-bopping Cali hip-hop.
And Kendrick couldn’t be any cooler tonight, all suaved out in head-to-toe white.
It’s a huge hit for Kendrick, who got help from fellow Compton native and West Coast rapper MC Eiht. Where would rap be without the city of Compton?
OK, we’ve veered back to “Radioactive.” It comes off the Dragons’ 2012 album “Night Visions.”
Could the alterna-rockers win Record of the Year? Would that be a shocker? They’ve never been nominated before.
Frontman Dan Reynolds is giving this the same hypnotic, mesmerizing treatment he gave the recorded version. Awesome. Big, big vocals from him.
That was incredible. Energetic. Something got shifted into overdrive there. But let’s reset for country charmer Kacey Musgraves, who’s about to return us to less frenzied frames of mind with her whimiscal “Follow Your Arrow.”
This is a be-who-you-are kind of song — clever! — and co-written by Kacey. It comes off of “Same Trailer, Different Park,” her major-label debut.

Let's discuss wardrobe: If this dress doesn't get you talking fashion, nothing will!
Kacey is a 25-year-old Texan who’s up for four GRAMMYs tonight, including Best New Artist, Best Country Album and Best Country Song. That ties her with Taylor Swift and Lorde for most nominations received by a woman this year. Impressive.
Kacey Musgraves was the only female nominated for Best New Artist this year. Did you know the first female country artist to win the award was Bobbie Gentry in 1967? Coincidentally, Musgraves' songwriting on her nominated album Same Trailer Different Park has garnered comparisons to Gentry's. It's a small GRAMMY world after all.
“Make lots of noise,” she’s singing. She’s followed her own advice — tons of buzz around this brunette beauty.
Is she wearing light-up cowboy boots?
Our arrow, ladies and gentlemen, has pointed us in the direction of a commercial. You know what to do. (No? You forgot? Comment!)
Here’s something about Kacey Musgraves you may not know if you’re out of the TV-singing-contest loop: she was on the fifth season of “Nashville Star” in 2007. She placed seventh.
Paul McCartney and Ringo Starr together again. #Beatles
Maybe you’re ready to genre-hop back into retro rock, in which case: lookout. Once again, there’s a Beatle in the house. Paul McCartney will be with us after the break. It’s a Beatles bonanza at the 56th GRAMMYs. And I, for one, am feeling the Fab Four fever. You too?
Tune in to CBS two weeks from today on Feb. 9 at 8 p.m. as we salute the Beatles with "The Night That Changed America."
Fevered or not, let’s not forget to chat while we can about who’s likely to take home our next award, for Best Pop Vocal Album. That’ll be award No. 6, out of 10 being handed out tonight.
How many legends can you fit in one picture?
Julia Roberts, here to introduce Paul McCartney and talk about next month’s milestone, looks smashing as ever in a daring lace dress.
A remaining-Beatles reunion. Awesome.
And here’s our man: This is “Queenie Eye” Paul’s singing, a song off “New,” his 2013 album.
