They were introduced by host LL Cool J and Imagine Dragons kicked off the performance with the first verse of "Radioactive" before Kendrick Lamar came on stage to perform "M.A.A.D City". For the song Imagine Dragons were his backing band, and during the performance the camera kept showing Taylor Swift who was dancing in the front row.
Midway through the performance they intertwined the songs and transitioned back into "Radioactive" before Lamar spit out an almost minute long verse that was rhythmically set to the music. At the 2014 Grammy Awards Imagine Dragons were nominated for two awards and they took home the prize for Best Rock Performance. Lamar was nominated for a total of seven awards, but he went home empty handed.
