2013 Grammy Awards Fashion


The Grammy Awards aired last night and there was some great fashion on the red carpet but not many things that wowed.  Here are some of my hits and misses.

55th Annual Grammy Awards Winners


The 55th Annual Grammy Awards aired tonight on CBS and while there were some  great performances, with a run time of three and a half hours there were plenty of boring moments (Frank Ocean and Taylor Swift’s performances, LL Cool J hosting).

The best parts of the show were Justin Timberlake’s performance of “Suit & Tie”, The Bob Marley Tribute which wasn’t much of a tribute at all with Rihanna, Bruno Mars, Sting, and The Marley brothers (Marley and Ziggy), the shade Chris Brown threw when Frank Ocean won by not standing when everyone else did, Kelly Clarkson’s cover of Tennessee Waltz and Natural Woman, Rihanna’s performance of Stay with Mikky Ekko and the in memorium performance of The Weight by Elton John, Zac Brown Band, Mumford & Sons, Mavis Staples and Brittany Howard of Alabama Shakes.

In the midst of all the performances, some awards were given. Unlike last year when the lovely Adele swept the show, everyone got some love from the Grammy committee. The top three awards (Album of The Year,  were split between Mumford & Sons, Gotye and fun.. The complete list of winners is below.
