SZA takes Ctrl the Grammys.
Despite the fact that she was shut out her five categories, the most-nominated female this year still delivered a winning performance “Broken Clocks” at Madison Square Garden on Sunday (Jan. 28).
Dressed in a distressed jersey and ripped jeans, SZA belted out her stellar track, which recently got President Barack Obama’s stamp approval. The set also featured a group backup singers, a live band, and large screens with dynamic images trees.
Hair flowing in the air, SZA carried on with the emotional performance as the New York crowd roared in approval and sparks fell behind her.
SZA was nominated for five awards, including Best New Artist, Best R&B Performance (“The Weekend”), Best R&B Song (“Supermodel”), Best Urban Contemporary Album (Ctrl), and Best Rap/Sung Performance (“Love Galore” featuring Travis Scott).
“This entire thing puts my wildest dreams to shame,” she said last year. “I dunno what to say cause I? dunno how to accept its even happening to me.”
