So the Grammys Were Last Night…
The Grammy Awards took place last night in Los Angeles. There were lots of performances, a few stand out moments, and even time for a few awards. I won’t rehash all of the winners – here is the full winners list – but The Black Keys, Fun., and Mumford & Sons all did very well.
Album of the Year went to Mumford & Sons, Record of the Year to Goyte featuring Kimbra, Song of the Year and Best New Artist to Fun., and Sir Paul McCartney even managed to knick a Grammy, too (hint: not Best New Artist).
There were some tributes, such as one to Dave Brubeck, one to Bob Marley (which featured a lot of non-Marley tracks), and at the end, a tribute to hip hop / MCA of the Beastie Boys. The super group who played at the end were Grammy host LL Cool J, Travis Barker, Chuck D, Tom Morello, and DJ Z-Trip, and they had a short nod to the departed MCA in their tune. Check it out below (it’s slightly cut off).
