The Grammys (2011)
The Grammys, despite what you may have heard on the Simpsons, are a big achievement for performers. Stars gathered to see who the winners were. Lady Gaga proved that she comes in either a pack of six of eight, bad joke aside; she was in an egg for her grand entrance onto the stage. Apparently she had to stay in the egg for three hours before hatching onstage, surprisingly not dressed as a chick. Katy Perry also shocked the audience as she played video clips of her wedding behind her as she performed, until now her wedding pictures had been kept away from the press.
The Grammys has 109 so I’ve selected a few and a full list can be found at grammy.com.
Here’s the results that I selected;
Record of the year – Need you now by Lady Antebellum
Album of the year – Suburbs by Arcade Fire
Song of the year – Need you now by Lady Antebellum
Best female vocal performance – Bad Romance by Lady Gaga
Best male vocal performance – Just the way you are by Bruno Mars
Best pop performance by a duo or group – Hey, Soul Sister (Live) by Train
Best vocal pop album – The Fame Monster by Lady Gaga
Best dance record – Only Girl (in the world) by Rihanna
Best electronic/dance album – La Roux
Best rock album – The Resistance by Muse
Surprisingly Bruno Mars beat Michael Jackson, who was also nominated for best male vocal performance, maybe Michael’s finally going to get to rest in peace as his career, which outlived him, fizzles out. Train can really sing, the live version of Hey, Soul Sister is great and will be at the end for anyone who wants to listen to it. I’m not really the dancing type so I’d love to hear how people feel about Only Girl winning in that category. Does it get your booty shaking? I was beginning to think I was the last remaining La Roux fan, so I’m really glad there’s more out there. I couldn’t be happier about Muse winning Best rock album. They deserve it, they made a great album and the title song, The Resistance, will also be at the end.
