Grammys 2023: Lizzo takes us to church with “About Damn Time”

Lizzo returned to the Grammy Awards stage to perform her hit single “About Damn Time” live at the 65th Annual Awards ceremony.

Displaying her soprano vocal range, Lizzo yelled to the crowd that she was bringing “the church vibes” into the building and surely did. A choir then joined the pop star in matching black and gold outfits that gave her track a euphoric touch as they sang, “I’m used to being alone.”

This marks Lizzo’s second Grammy performance after opening up the 2020 ceremony with her Grammy-winning single “Truth Hurts.”

The track is nominated for three awards including record of the year, song of the year and best pop vocal performance.
