Rihanna, Paul McCartney, and Kanye West performed “FourFiveSeconds” at tonight’s Grammy Awards. The trio recreated the stripped-down, minimalist style of the track’s visuals, which they premiered last week.
Rihanna, Kanye, and Paul stood in front of a white screen for the first half of the performance. In a surprising change of roles, Kanye had more cleavage than Rihanna did, and contrary to his intimate performance of “Only One” earlier tonight, Kanye’s voice during “FourFiveSeconds” didn’t sound auto-tuned.
Paul McCartney, tamer than Rihanna and Kanye alongside him, played the guitar, but cut out at the end of the song for the audience to clap in unison to it.
