Silk Sonic made their second Grammys performance on Sunday evening during the 64th Annual Grammy Awards, opening the ceremony with “777”.
It’s showtime for Silk Sonic. Tonight, the duo comprised of Bruno Mars and Anderson .Paak opened the ceremony with “777” from their 2021 debut album An Evening with Silk Sonic. The lucky-themed song was appropriate to open the 64th Annual Grammy Awards at the MGM Grand Garden Arena in Las Vegas, as the duo interpolated James Brown’s “Get on Up” and threw 1990 Soho cut “Hot Music (Jazz Music)” into their performance.

During the 2021 Grammy Awards, Mars and .Paak performed their smash hit “Leave The Door Open” from their collaborative album which was released later in the year. While the song is also nominated for Record of the Year and Best R&B Song, it won Best R&B Performance shared with Jazmine Sullivan’s “Pick Up Your Feelings” and Song of the Year from Sunday’s ceremony.
To accept their Song of the Year Grammy, the duo took the stage with producer and songwriter D’Mile who dedicated the award to his late mother who passed last Wednesday. “Leave the Door Open” also won the category over Olivia Rodrigo (“Drivers License”), Ed Sheeran (“Bad Habits”), Billie Eilish (“Happier Than Ever”), Brandi Carlile for “Right on Time” and the Alicia Keys-featured “A Beautiful Noise”, Justin Bieber featuring Daniel Caesar and Giveon (“Peaches”), Lil Nas X (“Call Me By Your Name (“Montero”), and Doja Cat featuring SZA (“Kiss Me More”).
