Watch Migos’ Quavo honour Takeoff during Grammys In Memoriam segment

Kacey Musgraves, Sheryl Crow and Bonnie Raitt also performed in the sombre section

MigosQuavo honoured his late bandmate and nephew Takeoff during the 2023 Grammys In Memoriam segment.

This year, the sombre section of the awards show was split into three parts, with Quavo leading the middle third.

Joined by a choir, the rapper performed ‘Without You’, the track he had written in released in tribute to Takeoff shortly after his death last year. To Quavo’s left sat an empty stool and mic stand adorned with a big chain necklace.


At the end of the performance, Quavo stood up and held up the chain towards the crowd. Watch the moment below.

Takeoff was shot and killed outside a bowling alley in Houston, Texas in November 2022. One man has been arrested and charged with the rapper’s murder; he has denied the charges.

Kacey Musgraves opened the In Memoriam segment, honouring Loretta Lynn. The star performed with an acoustic guitar emblazoned with Lynn’s name on the fretboard.

Sheryl Crow, Bonnie Raitt and Mick Fleetwood closed out the moment with a performance of Fleetwood Mac’s ‘Songbird’ in tribute to Christine McVie. Fleetwood played percussion while Crow played piano and swapped vocals with Raitt.
