65th Annual Grammy Awards: ‘God Did’ Closes Out The Ceremony In Legendary Form

DJ Khaled and company did not disappoint.

The 65th Grammy Awards was a star-studded event and the ending fit in perfectly.

With the prior announcement that Jay-Z would be performing at the event held in Los Angeles at Arena, it wasn’t quite clear how DJ Khaled and company’s conclusion with “God Did” would come together.

What did come from Hov, Khaled, Fridayy, Rick Ross, Lil Wayne and John Legend was nothing short of immaculate as a group of artists. As each did their verse, it built to the climax of Jay performing his, which happened at a long table resembling “The Last Supper.” The entire five-minute verse was performed on the Grammy stage while the others featured on the song celebrated alongside.

DJ Khaled subsequently ended the performance with a direct-to-camera address: “We did an 8-minute song on the Grammys!”

“God Did”, the song, was nominated for three Grammy awards, including “Song of the Year”, “Best Rap Performance” and “Best Rap Song.” It was featured on Khaled’s 13th studio album of the same name, which itself was nominated for "Best Rap Album".
