John Legend has won many awards throughout the years but his winning ways started way back when John was a young boy. At the age of 10, John was crowned the Springfield District Spelling Bee champion.
The annual awards show will be back in the Big Apple for the first time since 2003, with the main event scheduled to take place at Madison Square Garden on Jan. 28, 2018.
Independent artist Chance the Rapper is shaking up the music industry. The 23-year-old unsigned rapper made Grammy history with his wins for his streaming-only album, Coloring Book. The Chicago rapper took home three awards — Best Rap Performance, Best New Artist and Best Rap Album
In an interview with Britain's DJ Semtex -- which was recorded the day after the Grammys -- Drake expressed his frustration with the Recording Academy for only recognizing him as a rap artist when his songs were actually mega pop hits.
The actress-activist stopped by Sway in the Morning Tuesday to chat with host Sway Calloway on Eminem’s SiriusXM channel Shade 45, where she cleared up her Metallica mishap and swooned over her Grammy run-in with Beyoncé. On Sunday night during the 2017 Grammy Awards, Cox took the stage to introduce Lady Gaga and Metallica’s blistering performance of “Moth Into Flame,” but she was so “in a moment” that she failed announce the heavy metal group’s name. “I know Metallica, so this is the thing—people think that I do not know Metallica,” she explains.
If ever there was a love letter presented at the Grammys, it was Adele's tribute to George Michael on the 2017 edition, during which she performed his 1996 song "Fastlove."
Adele had a big night at the Grammys, winning a total of five awards. But on Monday morning, the British singer faced some backlash for a comment she made while accepting the Album of the Year award.
Like the Golden Globes, the 2017 Grammy Awards featured a number of bold political statements, from Katy Perry's projection of the U.S. Constitution, to A Tribe Called Quest's comments on President Trump's immigration order and Laverne Cox's call out to support a transgender teen's upcoming Supreme Court case on bathroom access. Was it the most political Grammys ever?
YouTube sensation Sergio Flores, better known as the Sexy Sax Man who pops up in random places playing Wham!’s classic “Careless Whisper,” spontaneously picked up his saxophone and performed the song’s infectious riff, bringing the joy of sax to his small but delighted audience. For those that missed it live.. Here's a little clip form behind the scenes from the red carpet! @krisjenner @katya_zamo @theonlyalaska5000 @kristincavallari @bradgoreski #grammys #eredcarpet ❤️✨???????????????????? Before the telecast began, Grammys producer Ken Ehrlich told the potential winners: “Say something important tonight.
Adele experienced her own rollercoaster ride of highs and lows at this year’s Grammys, starting the night strong with “Hello,” struggling through her second performance, and eventually ending the evening by winning the three biggest awards of the year. Here are the most talked-about moments, for reasons good and bad, of the 59th Annual Grammy Awards. It’s Gagatallica! Metalligaga! Yes, one week after blowing away millions of viewers with her acrobatic, pyrotechnic Super Bowl halftime show, Gaga proved she’s more than just a pop star by taking the stage with hard rock veterans Metallica, for a headbanging duet of that band’s Hardwired… to Self-Destruct track “Moth Into Flame.” Gaga has long insisted she had a bad-girl metal streak, and on Sunday she proved she can talk the talk and rock the walk.
England made its presence felt at the 59th Annual Grammy Awards, which were held Sunday night at Staples Center in Los Angeles. Two English artists, Adele and the late David Bowie, were the night’s biggest winners, taking five and four Grammys, respectively. Acclaimed hip-hop artist Chance the Rapper won three awards.
By the time superstar vocalist Adele took the stage at the 59th Annual Grammy Awards to accept the most coveted award of the night, Album of the Year (for her third album, 25), the singer had already accepted four other awards honoring her work. Still, despite being so richly lauded, she had definite ideas about the person to whom she would dedicate her final thank-you.
Last week, Grammys producer Ken Ehrlich told Yahoo Music that he would welcome any political statements during this year’s ceremony. And legendary hip-hop group A Tribe Called Quest, joined by Busta Rhymes and 2017 Best New Artist nominee Anderson .Paak, certainly made a strong statement on Sunday’s show, dedicating their performance to protesters “pushing against people in power to represent them,” then calling out “President Agent Orange” in a particularly incendiary moment.
In a year that saw many painful entertainment-world losses, the passing of musical genius Prince Rogers Nelson in April 2016 at the age of 57 was particularly stinging. The pioneer, a seven-time Grammy winner and member of the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame warranted, a goes-without-saying tribute at the 59th Annual Grammy Awards — which proved to be a bittersweet but highly anticipated moment in a show filled with A-list appearances. Although both songs are merely Prince co-writes, they were a welcome flashback to the Purple One’s most glorious era — complete with all the camp.
Probably the most anticipated moment — in a show billed with a massive slate of anticipated moments — at the 59th Annual Grammy Awards was the promised appearance from Beyoncé. Indeed, the performance did begin on a glorious maternal note, with Beyoncé showing off her burgeoning figure, dressed in a goddess-like gold outfit and headpiece. Adding to the craziness, images of herself spinning around with her first child, Blue Ivy Carter — whose image multiplied into many Blue Ivy Carters — preceded the live action.
The Grammys are all about the music, but the red carpet is all about the style — or lack thereof, in some cases. On Sunday night, stars (and wannabe stars) hit the big event in a variety of ensembles, though there was certainly a fair share of … let’s call them “interesting” looks. From skirts covered in plastic balls that looked stolen from Chuck E. Cheese to face masks that completely hid the person beneath, these brave souls took risks for our viewing pleasure.
When Tyler Joseph and Josh Dun of twenty one pilots hopped up to accept their very first Grammy (Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for their hit “Stressed Out”), viewers might have thought for a moment that the lads were adjusting their pants’ zippers before walking to the stage. As the disbelieving crowd looked on, Joseph gave a quick — and, it turns out, heartwarming and humorous — explanation for the striptease. “The story — it starts in Columbus, Ohio, a few years ago, and it was before Josh and I were able to make money playing music,” Joseph said.
The Grammy Awards are known for daring fashion, with this year’s arrivals no exception. Check out all the looks from the red carpet, live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
The 59th Annual Grammy Awards took place Sunday in Los Angeles. Many of the winners in a whopping 83 categories were announced before the CBS telecast even began. This list includes all the 2017 nominees and winners.
Al Jarreau, a seven-time Grammy Award-winning singer, died Sunday at a Los Angeles hospital. According to a statement from his manager Joe Gordon published by Ebony magazine, the singer was surrounded by family and friends at the time of his passing.
It was an emotional evening at Clive Davis’s glitzy annual pre-Grammy gala, held Saturday at the Beverly Hilton hotel in Los Angeles. While high-energy performances by Neil Diamond, DNCE, Chance the Rapper, and show openers Bell Biv DeVoe had superstar guests up out of their seats and dancing, the more serious moments, courtesy of Judy Collins and Mary J. Blige, are what made the veteran music executive’s party a truly memorable affair.
Frank Ocean fired back at Grammy producers in a Tumblr post Saturday night, after they criticized the singer's 2013 award show performance.
At Friday’s MusiCares Person of the Year gala, music’s elite dug deep into the Tom Petty catalog to honor the 66-year-old rock legend and three-time Grammy-winner during a nearly three-hour, star-studded Grammy weekend tribute concert. One of the evening’s highlights was Don Henley’s jazzy rendition of “Free Fallin’” — but when Petty later delivered his charming, rambling Person of the Year acceptance speech, he revealed that, incredibly, that song almost never came out. “Me and George Harrison and Jeff Lynne one night were at [Warner Bros. Records executive] Mo Ostin’s house.
