What's that cliché about saving the best for last? Yeah -- pretty sure the Grammys did that on Sunday night (Feb. 8).
After an evening full of star-studded performances -- everyone from Kanye West to Sam Smith to Ed Sheeran to Ariana Grande -- the show's closing may very well have been its peak.
The finale was a two-parter, opening with Beyoncé singing the gospel song "Take My Hand, Precious Lord." Her powerful rendition of the song, which was written by Rev. Thomas A. Dorsey in 1932, was aided by a handful of background singer who, like Bey, were dressed in all white. But it was really Queen Bey's moment, as she showed off her always-impressive pipes, singing like she had something to prove.
And prove it she did.
And so they did.
"Justice for all just ain't specific enough/ One son died, his spirit is revisitin' us/ True and livin' livin' in us, resistance is us/ That's why Rosa sat on the bus/ That's why we walk through Ferguson with our hands up," the Chicago native rapped during the moving performance, while John Legend played the piano and sang the song's hook.
"Now is our time," Com said poignantly as the music came to a stop.
He's certainly right. And on Sunday night, it was certainly their time.
