Coming into the 2022 Grammys with the most nominations of any artist — 11 — and winning four prior to the show, Jon Batiste made sure his outfits were on point for his big day.
A Louisiana native, Batiste’s custom Dolce & Gabbana diamond-pattern look was a nod towards his roots.
“These are New Orleans Saints colors, black and gold,” he said of his sequined look on the red carpet. “I wanted to bring home with me on the carpet.”
His family and grandfather attended the event with him.
“For him to see me today wearing these New Orleans colors … What can I say? I’m just blessed,” Batiste said.
