THE BIG WINS OF THE 56TH ANNUAL GRAMMY AWARDS IN 2014
The 56th Annual Grammy Awards were filled with some of the best in the musical business. The show, which has some outlandish performances, Jay-Z and Beyonce, Taylor Swift, Daft Punk, Lorde, Kendrick Lamar, Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr and more. We laughed, we cried, we tweeted.
Here were some of the highlights of the 2014 Grammy Awards:
Daft Punk took home a great amount of Grammy Awards. They hit the stage with their winning hit “Get Lucky” featuring Pharrell and Nile Rodgers. Get Lucky won the award for Record Of The Year, as well as Best Pop Duo/Group Performance. Daft Punk also brought home the awards for Best Dance/Electronica Album and Best Engineered Album (Non-Classical). No doubt about it that Daft Punk which we represent through EMI Music Publishing/ SONY ATV had a great success in 2013 and defiantly deserved this big win! Talking about great success Pharrell Williams took home the award for Producer of the year (Non-Classical)! After all the amazing work he has done in 2013 it was no surprise when he was awarded! He produced BBC with Jay Z, Blurred Lines with Robin Thicke featuring T.I., Happy, I Can’t Describe (The Way I Feel) with Jennifer Hudson featuring T.I., Nuclear with Destiny’s Child, Oceans with Jay Z featuring Frank Ocean, and both songs The Stars Are Ours and Reach Out Richard with Mayer Hawthorne. Pharrell definitly had a busy year…
Of course Macklemore & Ryan Lewis didn’t do so bad winning the award for Best New Artists! Representing them through Kobalt Music Group LIM was an honor! Seeing them take home awards for Best Rap Performance with “Thrift Shop” and The Best Rap Album with “The Heist” was pretty fun.
Lorde, Bruno Mars, Zedd featuring Foxes, Black Sabbath, Paul McCartney with Dave Grohl, Krist Novoselic, Pat Smear, Vampire Weekend, Rihanna, Alicia Keys, Jay Z featuring Justin Timberlake, Adele, Thomas Newman, also got t stand up the stage receiving Grammy Awards. Lorde won with “Royals” Song Of The Year and Best Pop Solo Performance. Bruno Mars with his album “Unorthodox Jukebox” won the Best Pop Vocal Album. Zedd featuring Foxes took home the award for Best Dance Recording with “Clarity”. God Is Dead? by Black Sabbath won Best Metal Performance. Paul McCartney, Dave Gorhl, Krist Novoselic, Pat Smear won Bes Rock Song with “Cut Me Some Slack”. Vampire Weekend won Best Alternative Music Album with “Modern Vampires of The City”. Unapologetic by Rihanna won Best Urban Contemporary Album when Girl On Fire by Alicia Keys won Best R&B Album. Holy Grail by Jay Z featuring Justin Timberlake won Best Rap/Sung Collaboration. Skyfall song by Adele and composed By Thomas Newman was awarded for Bes Score Soundtrack For Visual Media and Best Song Written For Visual Media.
What did you guys think about the big wins this year? Personally I think that the awards were well deserved!
