Did a lot of the performances on last night’s Grammy Awards send you running for your phone so you could Shazam them and find out what people were singing? You weren’t alone.
The song-tagging app has released a list of the Grammys’ Top Shazamed Peformances, and number one was country duo Dan + Shay’s performance of their crossover Grammy-winning hit “Tequila.” But considering the fact that the song was introduced before Dan + Shay sang it, it’s somewhat unusual that it topped Shazam’s chart.
On the other hand, it’s understandable that Alicia Keys‘ medley of songs she wished she’d written would have required some heavy-duty Shazaming — after all, she only played a little bit of each song, and there were seven songs in all.
In addition, some of the songs were probably unfamiliar to younger viewers, such as Nat King Cole’s “Unforgettable and Roberta Flack‘s “Killing Me Softly.” The medley came in #2 on Shazam’s list.
The rest of the songs on the list either weren’t massive hits, or were older tracks. They included Brandi Carlile’s powerful anti-bullying anthem “The Joke,” Kacey Musgraves‘ “Rainbow,” Janelle Monáe’s “Make Me Feel,” Dua Lipa‘s “One Kiss,” the Red Hot Chili Peppers song “Dark Necessities,” and “After the Gold Rush,” a classic Neil Young tune performed by Dolly Parton, Miley Cyrus and Maren Morris.
