Grammys 2020: Aerosmith's performance evokes nostalgia in some viewers, but others feel they should retire
The 62nd Grammy Awards night is leaving no stone unturned to make it the best evening for music fans. If Lizzo, Usher's tribute to Prince and Ariana Grande's medley didn't stir the emotions up enough, Aerosmith and Run DMC took to the stage and some left fans screaming for more. To see Aerosmith performing, was a moment of bittersweet nostalgia for millions of fans. They flooded social media with surprised reactions. While some were in awe that Steven Tyler was still singing, others were not entirely pleased with it.
One fan said that they 'saved' the Grammys. "Thank god for @Aerosmith and #RunDMC. Cuz the #Grammys2020 were lame so far...."
Some fans even called it "best performance" of the night. "Finally the best performance of the night!!!!! Aerosmith/RunDMC #WalkThisWay #Grammys2020," another wrote.
Another tweeted, "Favorite Grammy performance so far! @OfficialRunDMC and @Aerosmith."
However, other fans were rather disgruntled by their performance.
"I LOVE Aerosmith, but they really shouldn’t play anymore.. :/ #Grammys2020," wrote a rather disappointed fan.
"i think it’s time for aerosmith to retire... no?" wrote a fan.
"Aerosmith is not helping rock music right now," tweeted a fan.
The drummer, Joey Kramer, was not on stage with the band, as he lost the bid to perform with them for Grammys, and this angered fans as well. "Not seeing Joey Kramer on stage with Aerosmith at the Grammy’s is a travesty."
"Aerosmith would have sounded better with Joey Kramer on drums. Steven lost his voice, and his energy," tweeted a fan.
"Aerosmith did Joey Kramer a huge favor by blocking him from being on stage during that incredibly awful performance," wrote another.
