The 2016 Grammy Awards


Tonight is the music’s biggest night! Celebrating the best recordings, compositions and artists of the eligibility year, the 58th Annual Grammy Awards ceremony was held tonight at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California (15th February 2016). For the fifth year in the row, the show was once again hosted by LL Cool J.

The nominations were previously announced on December 7, 2015. American rapper Kendrick Lamar received the most nominations with 11. For the latter, he went on to pass Eminem as the rapper with the most nominations in a single night, and second overall behind Michael Jackson (12 nominations in 1984).Taylor Swift and The Weekend received seven nominations each. Producer Max Martin received the most nominations for a non-performing artist, with six.

The 26-year-old Taylor Swift picked up the award for “Best Album” for her album 1989 and during the acceptance speech she addressed her problems with Kanye West without actually saying his name, she stated: “And as the first woman to win Album of the Year at the Grammys twice, I want to say to the young woman out there, there are going to be people along the way who try to undercut your success or take credit for your accomplishments or your fame. But if you just focus on the work and you don’t let those people sidetrack you, someday when you get where you’re going, you will look around and you will know it was you and the people who love you who put you there, and that will be the greatest feeling in the world”.

Kendrick Lamar hit the stage to perform a theatrical hip-hop musical paying tribute to the hands that really built Alexander Hamilton’s America. Lady Gaga and Nile Rodgers performed a tribute to the late British rock star David Bowie, the audience saw them performing eight of Bowie`s hits.

Music star Adele was also one of the performers, as she hit the stage to perform her hit single “All I ask”, but her performance was unfortunately marred by sound issues and fans were not happy at all with the sound guys because of the problems.
