Childish Gambino – aka Donald Glover – was nominated for five Grammys, including Album of the Year and Record of the Year. He lost all but one – he won a Grammy for Best Traditional R&B Performance for his hit “Redbone.” I was actually surprised he didn’t perform “Redbone” at the Grammys, considering it’s probably his most well-known song. But he performed “Terrified” and I’m pretty sure he got a lot of ladies pregnant just from the smooth sexiness of this baby-making song.

The child performing with him is JD McCrary, just FYI. McCrary is voicing “young Simba” in the live-action Lion King remake and Glover is voicing the adult Simba. Isn’t this a great song and performance? I love how we just accept that Childish/Donald just wears all of these different hats and no one makes a big deal about it. It’s incredible. That being said, he told reporters at the Grammys that he plans to “retire” the Childish Gambino name and – I guess – record music under his own name.
He wore this Ermenegildo Zegna Couture white suit and what looked like black velvet slippers/loafers. Sexy.
