Best of 2016 : Live Performances

As 2016 comes close to concluding, the staff here at The 5th Element Magazine like to highlight a few of the best moments from the year.

Everyone, including myself, enjoys a great show and especially some live performances. Nowadays, half of the audience members are trying to recap everything that was LIT via Snapchat and Instagram. The other half actually watch and live in the moment of the performance. Let’s see if we narrowed it down to our top 5 best live performances of 2016.

Rihanna has been putting in “Work” this year as her track has been on repeat throughout 2016. Every now and then, Drake makes his appearance and the two, well you know, like to show the audience how to “Work” it.

Earlier this year, Kendrick Lamar was picked to be one of the live acts at the Grammy’s. Being that the Grammy’s is one of the most respected music awards, Kendrick Lamar got on stage and showcased a “controversial” performance.

This year at the Victoria Secret’s Fashion Show, Lady Gaga was able to perform twice. For one of her performances, she did a medley to John Wayne. Of course, if you’re a female performing at the VS Fashion Show you’ll get some spotlight on the runway as well. I must say, Gaga did that.

Chance the Rapper. What more do I need to say? As soon as he released “Coloring Book”, the internet, the fans, the musicians, and every other person went wild on how much hype and support the Chicago rapper received. He was asked to perform on The Ellen Degeneres Show and brought along a few friends.

Superbowl 50 happened earlier this year and I must say, it was a performance for the books. Coldplay was set to headline the halftime show and brought along Bruno Mars and Beyonce to perform. Check out the triple collaboration between the three hit musicians!
