The 57th Annual Grammy Awards were broadcast last night. This is the music industry’s big night.
Apart from a few interesting duets, the night was a bit ho-hum.
Sam Smith was the big winner with 4 awards, including Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and New Artist of the Year.
Possibly the biggest shock of the night was Beck, who walked away with the highly coveted Album of the Year….Beck had an album last year?! Who knew. He also beat out U2 and Tom Petty for Rock album of the Year. :(.
Paul McCartney got up and (kind of) sang with Kanye and Rhianna, Madonna showed signs of age but gave it her best shot at being relevant, and Kanye West ONCE AGAIN approached the stage to tell the audience that Beyonce should have won for album of the year. Not kidding. Come on, Kanye…..this act is getting old.
The best part of last night? ACDC opening the show with a new track and “Highway to Hell”. Watching Katy Perry and Lady Gaga sing along with little red horns on their heads was cheesy and FANTASTIC.
Here is a look at the classic rock gods in action…..
Also, the video of the Paul McCartney/Rhianna, kanye West tune that the trio performed last night.
