Most Memorable Performance at The Grammy’s

For anyone who loves music and must follow up on all of the latest songs and trends, the Grammy’s is a must see event. Of course, it is a three and a half hour broadcast the even cuts out some of the performances and awards, otherwise the show would literally go on for the entire day. The Grammy’s has long been known for interesting pairings, and this year is no different, including Elton John and Ed Sheeran. So, whether you are looking for a new celebrity style to copy at the Long Island Hairsay Salon, or you just are looking for exceptional music, these are the most memorable performances at the Grammy’s.

Justin Timberlake made his return with the debut of two new songs. The Grammy’s loves having artists perform new songs for the first time on stage, as this happened a few years ago with Lady Gaga, right before she released her last album “Born This Way.” What truly made the Justin Timberlake set stand out, however, was the fact that he not only sang the songs with Jay-Z, but the performance was broadcast on television in black and white, in order to give it more of a 1920s swing joint look.

Sting and Bruno Mars also performed a rather lively set that not only looked good but sounded good too. Too often, the Grammy musical pairings just don’t mesh well at all (see Alicia Keys and Adam Levine), but the Sting and Bruno Mars combination worked perfectly. The two artists performed the songs “Locked out of Heaven” and “Walking on the Moon.” It seemed like the entire audience was on their feet for the entirety of the set and didn’t take a break for minutes afterwards. Which is saying something when the Grammy’s is such a long show.

Hairstyles for spring 2013: the best trends, cuts and styles

Hairstyle trends for the spring of 2013 vary based on a person’s face shape. Flattering styles exist for people with round, square, long, oval and heart-shaped faces. To have your hair cut and styled by a professional, visit the Hairsay Salon in Long Island, New York. One of our brilliant stylists will help prepare you for spring by giving you the perfect hairstyle.

Your hairstyle should complement your face. If you have a round face, then you should avoid a short and curly hairstyle. Otherwise, your hairstyle will make your face look even rounder. People with a round face need a cut that will make their face appear leaner and more oval. Straight hair usually looks best. In addition, the hair should be at least chin length or longer. If you have a round face, you should also consider getting bangs.

Those who have an oval face are lucky; they can make nearly any hairstyle look good. If you have an oval face, make sure to avoid a hairstyle that adds height to the top of your head. You should also pass on a blunt cut if your hair is too curly or thick.

Short hair tends to look best on those who have a long face. Long hair can drag your face down, so you should try to avoid that issue. As for heart-shaped faces, they tend to have a pointy chin. Therefore, those with a heart-shaped face should find a hairstyle that accents their eyes and cheekbones. When it comes to a square face, you should play down your angular jaw. The best way to go about this is to create texture. For example, you can have your hair curled, or you can have the stylist make your ends choppy.

Once you find a hairstyle that works best for your face shape, you can visit the Hairsay Salon to have it cut and styled. Spring is quickly approaching, so you should prepare your hair for the change of season.

Worst performances of all time at the Grammy’s

The Grammys provide a way to celebrate music and artist achievement. Once a year, an awards show is held to honor those who have achieved success in the music industry. During music’s biggest night, numerous artists perform live with millions of people watching. Unfortunately, some performances don’t live up to the hype. Out of all the performances, Nicki Minaj’s 2012 spectacle was the worse. Her performance of “Roman’s Revenge” was confusing and bizarre.

For those who don’t know, Roman is Nicki’s British alter ego. During the first part of her performance, she was pretending to be Roman while confessing her sins to a priest. While Nicki may think her Roman character is interesting, most of the population does not. In fact, most people who were watching the Grammys just assumed Roman was Nicki rapping in a British accent. She falsely assumed that people would understand the story behind her performance. Most people questioned what was happening at the time.The performance was a lot to take in. Besides being difficult to understand, Nicki was full of manic energy and hard to watch. Many found the Catholic Church imagery to be offensive, and it was obvious that she lip-synced most of the performance. For these reasons, Nicki Minaj holds the title for the worst performance of all time at the Grammys.

Another notably bad performance happened in 1990 during a Milli Vanilli performance. Milli Vanilli was one of the biggest bands during the early 90s. As a result, they disappointed a lot of fans during their performance of “Girl You Know It’s True.” The band was caught lip-syncing to a prerecorded track and received a great deal of criticism the following day.

Legendary Performances at the Grammy’s That Flopped

No one is ever certain what will happen on stage at the Grammy Awards. This uncertainty is part of the attraction. Not knowing which acts will fly and which will fall flat is a main reason that millions of people are ready to watch the Grammy Show from beginning to end.

There have always been some stellar acts that shine on the Grammy stage. Unfortunately there are also many top artists that fail to live up to their star billing. Now it’s time to take a look at some of those legendary Grammy performances that flopped. Rihanna’s (off and on) boy-toy was a major fail when he was invited to sing at the Grammy Show. From fashion style to hair style Chris Brown proved that he was not at the top of his game during his controversial perfomance. While Brown showed off some interesting dance moves, his singing was below par for any night. He was also under fire for his vicious physical assault on his Barbados songbird.
Retro back to 1998 and you can discover a man who became known as the infamous “Soy Bomber”. Old school vocalist Bob Dylan was delivering a live performance of “Love Sick” when the Soy Bomber grabbed the Grammy spotlight. The unknown Soy Bomber aka Michael Portnoy was supposed to be one of the backup dancers on stage. Suddenly he tears off his shirt and bares his chest. Soy Bomb was scrawled in large black letters on Portnoy’s scrawny chest. The guy proved that he could get down with his dancing as he began shaking his groove thing all around Dylan. This pitiful performance did not last long, but it will go down as one of the worst flops to ever take center stage at the Grammy Awards Show.One of the biggest Grammy controversies in recent years occurred when Nicki Minaj took the stage in 2012. Minaj tried to create drama with her Exorcism routine. She got both drama and harsh critiques before her routine had even ended. The rap star’s Roman Holiday debacle failed to impress audiences around the world. Not only was Minaj given a major “thumbs down” she also earned the wrath of many earnest (and upset) followers of the Catholic Church.

Most Risqué Outfits At The 2013 Golden Globe Awards

The ladies have been buzzing here in Long Island at the Hairsay Salon about the recent fashion appearances at the 2013 Golden Globes ceremonies. The hot topic, of course, is the risqué gown worn by Miranda Kerr. The 29-year-old Victoria’s Secret, model showed up on the red carpet draped in the oxblood, chiffon design by Zuhair Murad. The beautiful yet daring gown featured a plunging neck line, mid-thigh front split with gathered ruffle at the hip. Kerr paired the lovely gown with a double hint of satin designed by Ferragamo. Our favorite of her accessories was, obviously, husband, Orlando Bloom.

Weisz dazzled us with a mixture of satin, strapless mini-dress and peek-a-boo polka dots, escorted by her daringly handsome hubby, Daniel Craig. With her beautiful retro hairstyle, Jimmy Choo sandals, and a Bulgari Serpenti bracelet, she was a force to be reckoned with.

Swift, a risk-taker herself this year, wore a Donna Karan Atelier gown in deep plum. However, it was Eva Longoria, who once again took us back to the plunging neck line and high-slit features of Kerr’s Zuhair Murad gown.

Unfortunately, the Desperate Housewives favorite had her own Super Bowl moment, as she had a nip-slip during her walk down the red carpet. The actress seemed to take the incident in stride, while onlookers and photogs took it all in.
