What were those Grammy awarded gramophones you feel good and happy about ? Nothing really suprising happened this year unless perhaps, I was suprised by some 2012 nominations (Led Zeppelin – Celebration Day, Alicia Keys – Girl On Fire) and less 2013 albums (perhaps Paul McCartney – New or Robbie Williams – Swing Both Ways) for commercial albums even though – british?.
But. Congratulations to.
Lorde (Song Of The Year, Best Pop Solo Performance)
Black Sabbath (Best Metal Performance)
Paul McCartney & Dave Grohl (Best Rock Song)
Led Zeppelin (Best Rock Album)

Daft Punk (Record Of the Year, Album Of The Year, Best Pop/Duo, Best Dance Album, Best Engineered Album)
Bruno Mars (Best Pop Vocal Album)
It is rather hard to think about which performances gave me shivers this year. Those you ought to see are certainly John Legend whose singing with piano showed his amazing singing possibilities. For interesting you can take Daft Punk ft. Pharell Williams and Stevie Wonder.
As was said by Grammy host connection of different genres is rather old idea. Rock/Rap connection was provided by Best Rock Performance winners Imagine Dragons and Kendrick Lamar who slightly outshadowed mentioned pop-rockers. Another connection was between classical music and metal by pianist Lang Lang and Metallica performing One that was connected with remembering passed Lou Reed.
Paul McCartney’s new song ‘Queenie Eye’ from album New was also performed and on drums sat one and only Ringo Starr. Mentioned has to be amazing diet of Carol King and Sara Bareilles performing Beautiful/Brave.
As rather capable singers were showed Robin Thicke who performed with Chicago, Macklemore who performed alongside Madonna, Mary Lambert and of course Lewis or Pink. Amazing Pink with fun. singer Nate Ruess one tiny step behind. New lady on music field 17 year old Lorde from New Zeland was also one of the tops of evening. At least not last Hunter Hayes.
Grammy is very american thing so there must not be missing country. Willie Nelson, Kris Kristofferson, Merle Haggard and Blake Shelton was a bonbon for every fun. So was performance by lovely Kacey Musgraves and hint of blues with Keith Urban and Gary Clark Jr. End of the show gave us rock to be by Nine Inch Nails and Queens of the Stone Age.
