In an unconventional move, Jack White gave us all a real reason to tune into the music industry's biggest event, when he surprisingly revealed that he would be taking the stage at 55th Annual Grammy Awards last week. Traditionally Jack has shied away from major television appearances with only a few exceptions. Since it's been nine years since Jack took the stage at the Grammys, let's take a moment to reflect on the very best of his televised performances.
