With less than a week to go before the Grammy awards, Clive Davis tapped Dutch phenom Afrojack to open his annual pre-Grammy bash. Following last year's tragic death of Whitney Housten, Nick had his work cut out for him. And he stepped up to the challenge. Here's what the L.A. Times had to say.
"For the most part, though, Saturday’s three-hour bash — attended by Sting Miley Cyrus, Joni Mitchell, Magic Johnson, Katy Perry, Johnny Depp, and Frank Ocean, among many others — seemed designed for uplift, not reflection. That’s what you had to assume, anyway, when Afrojack turned up to blast the black-tie crowd with throbbing electro-house beats, including “Titanium,” the Dutch DJ’s fist-pumping collaboration with David Guetta and Sia.
“I wanted the culture of [electronic dance music] to be represented tonight,” Davis said, and so it was — even if the sound proved a strange match for the ballroom setting."
