Favourite Grammy performances with standing ovations- P!nk, 2010 Grammys

No Grammy performance list is complete without this.

A jawdropping, acrobatic yet spellbinding performance of Glitter in the Air with P!nk still delivering emotive, on-pitch LIVE vocals.

The standing ovation at the end was more than well deserved, but Alicia had done this performance many times before on tour.

Favourite Grammy performances with standing ovations- Michael Jackson, 1988 Grammys

Despite not winning a Grammy for Bad that night, Michael still delivered a dazzling performance of soul, vocals, spirit and dance.

His spins were electrifying, and Michael gave it his all on this extended rendition of Man in the Mirror.

It’s no wonder he got a standing ovation. People who stood up included Billy Joel, Stevie Wonder, PRINCE (see 6:48), Cyndi Lauper and Little Richard

When Prince stands up, you KNOW it’s good!

It’s sad to see this was his only ever Grammy performance in adulthood.
