Legendary artist Lenny Kravitz graced the stage at the 64th Annual Grammy Awards on Sunday, alongside fellow artists Travis Barker and H.E.R.
Las Vegas played host to the awards show, featuring an epic rock performance by H.E.R., Lenny Kravitz, and Travis Barker. The three talented artists rocked out to a musical medley including H.E.R.’s “Damage,” We Made It,” and Kravitz’ own “Are You Gonna Go My Way,” according to Billboard. The trio dominated the stage, “with H.E.R. and Kravitz trading ferocious guitar riffs as Barker expertly slammed on the drums behind them,” the outlet reported.
Kravitz arrived at the Grammy Awards wearing his signature sunglasses and dressed in “a custom sparkling, deep V see-through silver metal tank by Natalia Fedner, black leather pants and heeled boots, as well as matching layered chain necklaces, for a head-turning rock ‘n’ roll look,” Entertainment Tonight reported.

H.E.R. kicked off the live performance and was later joined by Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker and the legendary Kravitz. “H.E.R. and Kravitz both shredded through the song as though their lives depended on it,” reported Loudwire, while Billboard described it as a “blowout performance.” (RELATED: Kanye West Pulled From Grammy’s Due To ‘Concerning Online Behavior’)
