The Grammy winner performed her songs "Damage" and "We Made It" before being joined by Travis Barker and Lenny Kravitz for "Are You Gonna Go My Way."

As if it wasn't enough to win again at the Grammys Awards, H.E.R. got to perform with some living legends this year.

On Sunday night, the R&B prodigy sang Song of the Year nominee "Damage" with Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis, the producers best known for providing Janet Jackson her signature sound.

Shortly after, iconic Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker came onstage to accompany H.E.R. for "We Made It," another track off her Grammy-nominated 2021 album Back of My Mind

For a big finish, rockstar Lenny Kravitz came onstage to sing his 1993 hit "Are You Gonna Come My Way" with the 24-year-old singer-songwriter, who will soon star in the movie musical adaptation of The Color Purple.

The performance was a dream come true for H.E.R. who said in the award show press room, "I actually studied their performances and their live shows growing up" of Jam and Lewis, mimicking the dance moves they did when they were in the backing band for Prince. Of Kravitz, she said "I have been a fan of his and studied him since I was 11 so to have this full circle moment and perform with him, I was like at a loss for words. I was so happy and excited, and yeah, honestly like still on the high."

Appearing recently on EW's The Awardist podcast, H.E.R. said, in reference to some of the artists being recognized as the Record Academy improve their nomination and voting process, "There's a lot of dope artists that are really just influencing the world and the things that we love. They're shifting the culture." 

As Sunday's performance proves, H.E.R. can absolutely count herself among those artists.
