Aerosmith and Run-D.M.C. joined forces for a fiery performance at the 2020 Grammy Awards on Sunday night. The performance came after Aerosmith was named MusiCares Person of the Year during a pre-Grammys gala event held two nights ago.
With someone who clearly wasn’t Joey Kramer playing drums, the rock legends came out first with “Living on the Edge”, which saw Lizzo joining in as Steven Tyler took to the crowd (her second performance of the night, technically). Then, as they went into their classic “Walk This Way”, the music cut as the great Run-D.M.C. busted out. They revisited their classic rap-rock rendition of the song — perhaps a bit sloppier with age, but no less wicked seeing two such iconic groups teaming up. At one point, Run’s DJs held up a Kobe Bryant jersey, and there was a killer shot of Flava Flav rocking out in the audience.
Aerosmith originally released “Walk This Way” in 1975. The rock hit was introduced to a new audience in the ’80s when it was covered by Run-D.M.C. on their album Raising Hell. The rap group’s version is thought to be one of the first mainstream singles of the rap-rock genre.
Aerosmith will continue their “Deuces Are Wild” residency in Las Vegas later this month, and you can find your concert tickets here.
