The 2018 Grammys’ Best After Party Moments

by admin | January 29, 2018 6:05 pm

While the 2018 Grammys may have left many viewers and critics[1], as Solange would say, “weary[2] of the ways of the world,” the show’s attendees had stamina to burn following the show’s broadcast last night. Despite her much-contested[3] loss to Ed Sheeran for Best Pop Solo Performance, Kesha was all flower power after the show, showing up in a red gown and floral headgear to Sony Music’s party at the Whitney. Meanwhile, Sam Smith ditched his vestments[4] for a forest-green Cerruti suit for Shinola Audio’s party at the Lower East Side’s PUBLIC Hotel, where Smith and boyfriend Brandon Flynn grinded to Grammy-winning DJ Mark Ronson.

Further downtown, Interscope’s Svedka-sponsored bash filled out restaurant-cum-nightlife den China Chalet, where Rita Ora, Diplo and Dua Lipa vamped amid white tablecloths and disco balls. But not to be outdone by the “Best New Artist” set, a flamboyantly top-hatted Erykah Badu spun until 3 a.m. for the likes of Quincy Jones and Dave Chappelle at Universal Music Group’s Spring Studios party. Name a more iconic trio, we’ll wait.
