To those people who remained in your seats when #PattiLuPone finished singing "Don't Cry for Me Argentina", there's one or two reasons. Either you have a medical excuse or you don't know sh*t about music. #GRAMMYs

A Little Confusion
Initially, some viewers got confused between Patti LuPone and Patti LaBelle because they misheard James Corden when he announced the performance that was to follow. They thought that Patti LaBelle was going to perform.
However, the moment of confusion dissipated quickly once Patti LuPone arrived on the stage and delivered a rousing performance.
