Black Pumas - Colors - GRAMMYs Performance

If you missed the 63rd annual Grammy awards, or if you want to relive the magic of Austin's own Black Pumas, look no further.

The psychedelic soul duo made Austin proud Sunday evening as they were nominated for three Grammys against some tough competition. While not taking home any of the awards, the Black Pumas shined bright as they performed their nominated-hit song "Colors."


Singer-songwriter Eric Burton and guitarist and producer Adrian Quesada have enjoyed a fairly swift claim to fame since making their official debut in June last year. Their first full-length, self-titled album came out this year, landing them a nomination for Album of the Year.

The duo was first nominated for a Grammy last year, but was swiped by dark pop artist Billie Eilish. Black Pumas and Eilish were again up against each other, this time for Record of the Year, which she took home. The Black Pumas were also in the running for Best Roots Performance for "Colors."
