Music’s biggest night makes room for the newcomers.

The 62nd annual Grammy Awards took place at the Staples Center hours after NBA legend Kobe Bryant tragically died.

Host Alicia Keys did her best to soothe audiences with her encouraging words of wisdom and smooth vocals.

The night featured performances from Demi Lovato, Rosalia, Camila Cabello, a Prince tribute by Usher, the Jonas Brothers, Ariana Grande and more.

Billie Eilish swept the four major categories, making her the youngest artist in history to do so in the same year.

  1. The grammys obviously can tell that no one cares (viewership)l wise) anymore. They are definitely trying to appeal to a younger audience which is great but i don’t even have cable and I’m 31. Can i also say that they are so predictable that the “leaked” list was probably just a guess and they were like “fudge, lets get the noms out”. I thought a grammy nomination party with announcement is the norm? Someone is fired lol…

  2. The Grammys tend to undervalue really popular “pop” records in the past years. But now it seems they’re changing that to get viewer ratings to go up. Just imagine if Britney debuted this decade, she would’ve gotten a lot of nominations and wins.

    1. Britney had higher competition too. I mean Xtina and all, they were pretty darn good in the early years! Every single person that was nominated had smash hits and were all one by one tough competition while these days…I mean…Taylor, Billie and Ariana are probably the only ones that will score

  3. The Grammys are ridiculous. Lil Nas X received all those nominations just for one song? He’s a One Hit Wonder. And they are so bad with the categories in which they place each song. Plus I don’t get how they can give sooooo many awards (one or two per successful artist is already enough, you made it that year, now move on to the next project) and then also completely ignore others?? Besides, sometimes nominating an artist is already a recognition. Anyway, a mess.

  4. Mariah Carey’s Caution is a great album. I hate it when an artist has many years in the business and matures or polishes their sound, and then they get zero recognition.

  5. I’m happy for Billie Eilish!!! ❤ I wish Ariana won one. Like Pop Vocal Album atleast. I also wished the Jonas Brothers won Pop Duo/Group Performance. I’m still upset ‘Sucker’ wasn’t nominated for Record of the Year. I’m also really happy for Tyler, The Creator because IGOR deserved Best Rap Album! Happy for Gaga’s additional ASIB wins but it’s gone on for too long. ASIB has been present for 2 Grammy cycles already. Beyonce’s Homecoming also deserved. And laslty, happy for the Chemical Brothers sweeping the Dance categories. ❤
