The word "Grammy" comes from gramophone, of course.
Wiki says:
=========================================================
"The Grammy Awards (originally called the Gramophone Awards)—or Grammys—are presented annually by the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences of the United States for outstanding achievements in the music industry. The awards ceremony features performances by prominent artists, and some of the awards of more popular interest are presented in a widely-viewed televised ceremony."

I guess I'll watch too. I should take a nap this afternoon so I can stay awake for the Grammies. Trouble is... I usually don't enjoy the new music.

Who is hosting?


message 4: by Becky (new)

Becky (beckymurr) I am not sure who is hosting but Neil Diamond is getting a Lifetime award & I like him. I am not always thrilled with the acts but I still like to watch. I remember how excited I would get when I was a teenager & knew the awards were going to be on.....

You never know!

I also love watching the expressions on the celebrities in the audience.
I try to figure out what they're thinking. (g)

Joy H. (joyofglensfalls) | 16697 comments I enjoyed the part where Jamie Fox danced with 4 or 5 other male performers. That was a cute number. I didn't know who the other male performers were who were dancing and singing with Fox.
