Grammys 2021: Dua Lipa pulls off three outfit changes in sparkling Future Nostalgia performance

Dua Lipa was among the performers tonight at the 2021 Grammy Awards and she made sure to bring the fun.

The 25-year-old singer dazzled in her performance of two of the biggest hit songs from her acclaimed second album ‘Future Nostalgia’.

Lipa took the stage in an elegant Versace oversized gown covered with diamante studs in front of a surreal, purple cloud background to perform a rendition of her hit ‘Levitating’.

The pop-star was later joined by DaBaby who performed his verse from the single’s remix.

After DaBaby’s interlude, Lipa changed into a sparkling purple sequined blazer-dress to finish the first part of her two-song medley.

Following a brief dance break, Lipa stripped down to a racy pink two-piece and launched into the LP’s first single ‘Don’t Start Now’.

Flaunting her athletic dance moves inspired by the 80s surrounded by masked dancers, the look and feel of the performance was very reminiscent of the early aughts disco era.

The high-octane performance of ‘Don’t Start Now’ exuded confidence as Lipa danced and strutted her way through without missing a beat.

Since the release of ‘Future Nostaglia’ in March 2020, Lipa has been seen doing highly choreographed performances with an eye-popping disco aesthetic and this one is no exception.

From the outfits down to the choreography, the performance was very disco-pop-themed but in a good nostalgic way.

Even the moonlit background and stage set-up adhered to the theme and the frequent glimmer from the lights resemble an effect commonly used in disco-pop music videos from that era.

The performance was well thought through and very on-brand for the route Lipa has been taking with her latest album.

Accepting her award for ‘Best Pop Vocal Album’, Lipa said: “Future Nostalgia means the absolute world to me and it has changed my life in so many ways.

“One thing I’ve really come to realise is how much happiness is so important.

“I felt really jaded at the end of my last album where I felt like I only had to make sad music to feel like it mattered.

“I’m just so grateful and so honoured because happiness is something we all deserve and something that we all need in our lives.”
