Top Ten Live Performances at the Grammy Awards

A list to determine which performer has delivered the best live performance at the grammy awards.

The Top Ten

1 Metallica - One (1989)
2 Michael Jackson - Man In the Mirror (1988)

the ending when he says "black man gotta make a change, white man gotta make a change, blind man gotta make a change" mmm, and the way he was just giving his heart to it and he collasped on the floor- dedication

No flashy outfits or grandiose props, just pure energy, talent, and, not to mention, vocal ability and smooth piercing dancing.

How many times I watched it in you tube and he's amazing you can feel that he's a man in the mirror I love it

Michael Jackson EMPEROR OF LIVE PERFORMANCES. His Presence speaks it all.

3 Green Day - 21 Guns (2010)

No other words. "Goosbumps"

4 Pink - Glitter In the Air (2010)

Come on guys seriously! She sang beautifully and gave us a stunning aerial performance unlike any other artist, singing beautifully while upside down. Definitely the best right here!

5 Foo Fighters - Rope (2012)
6 Eminem and Elton John - Stan (2001)

Well Eminem AND Elton John... Ain't that enough man?! It was just an EPIC and kinda creepy performance...

7 Christina Aguilera - This Is a Man's World (2007)

Nice performance. No doubt one of the best vocals in her generation.. Powerful rendition..

Grammy must be very thankful because they have Christina Aguilera, without here, Grammy would be suck!

Awesome performance, beyonce's vocals are amazing and soooo powerful. - fisto77

This was one of the best performances on Grammys! GooseBumps! There are soldiers dancing with Beyonce and Beyone also sang You Oughta Know!

Awesome! Great voice and great moves! Queen Of R&B!
