DAFT PUNK RULED! The duo won five Grammy Awards (out of five nominations) including Album of the Year, Record of the Year, Best Pop Duo/Group Performance, Best Dance/Electronica Album, and Best Engineered Album (Non Classical). And performing “Get Lucky/Le Freak/Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger/Another Star”, they gave the best performance in the Grammy Awards this year, alongside with Pharrell Williams, Stevie Wonders, and Nile Rodgers. France must be proud of them!
Lorde brought two awards (out of four nominations) including Song of the Year and Best Pop Solo Performance for “Royals”. She was one of the two artists I was rooting for their success in Grammy this year (the other one being Sara Bareilles). Ella Yelich-O’Conor has proved that simplicity rules!
Even though Sara Bareilles did not win any award, she still looked incredibly beautiful. But being nominated in the most fabulous award in Grammy (read: Album of the Year) was fabulous in its own way. Her performance with the Musicares Award Winner, Carol King, was also sweet. I love your music, Sara. That’s enough.
What surprised me was the Nashville star and country singer, Kacey Musgraves, seemed to take a spotlight in Grammy. She even won two awards in which Taylor Swift was nominated. This year is just not Taylor’s year. In two years, she failed to win any nominations in which “Red” or any song from it was nominated in.
Over all I am so relieved by the Winners of the General categories! Why? Because Daft Punk (originally from France) and Lorde (originally from New Zealand) have proved that the US doesn’t hold the best music that currently exists.
Well, among 14 categories that I’ve made attempt to guess who’d win, I got 7 of them right.
I really need Bon Iver and Florence and the Machine to make a new album this year so Grammy next year can become an incredible madness. Continue reading “Year of the Robots (and the Beauty-Queen-in-Tears)”
