Little did we know at the time, but this year’s Grammys was one of the last awards shows to be held in person for a while. The night saw countless memorable moments, like when Billie Eilish became the youngest artist to win a Grammy in all four major categories. The ceremony also featured some captivating performances as well. Tyler The Creator was joined by Boyz II Men, Charlie Wilson, and an army of clones for a rendition of Igor tracks “Earfquake” and “New Magic Wand.” Now, offering insight into the set, Tyler has revealed that his original performance plan was more complex.
