Six years since his last performance, Kanye West returned to the Grammys for one of two performances. First up, the rapper performed his single “Only One” for the first time on television. With his wife Kim Kardashian and Paul McCartney watching from the audience, he sang the tender tribute to his mother and daughter North.
A single spotlight shined on him as he performed while wearing a red velour sweatsuit.
The performance earned him praise from his peers including Lorde.
