It's well known that the Grammys aren't exactly the most exciting awards show, but the 2014 Grammys Awards ceremony was even more boring than most — including, and especially, the performances. Many of music's biggest stars kept it surprisingly low-key when they took the stage, and while the simplicity was nice at times, it was also a bit disappointing; there's only so many times one can write "he/she passionately played the piano" before it gets repetitive.
