The Grammy Awards went as planned and there were several winners who took their success with humility and soft-spoken self-effacement. Meanwhile, part of the equation was the list of losers, who put on a good show of good sportsmanship.
The Musical Album of the Year that got nominated was Daft Punk’s “Random Access Memories”. They also got lucky as far as their catchy song “Get Lucky” was concerned. Then, the distinction for best song went to Lorde for “Royals” with its memorable lyrics and tune.
Taylor Swift didn’t bag the best country album award which instead was snatched by Kasey Musgraves. The king of pop was Bruno Mars as usual with his funky numbers. And the rappers who were the most dapper of the lot were Jay Z along with Justin Timberlake for “Holy Grail”.
In matters of Rock’n’Roll, it was a curious medley that won and it included Paul McCartney and Dave Grohl. The song was called “Cut me some Slack”. Meanwhile, the most talented pair of artists was Macklemore and Ryan Lewis who together formed quite a pair.
Black Sabbath with its Nietzschean “God is Dead” number was the favorite in the Heavy Metal category. The producer of the year was Pharrell Williams who, with his gifted nature of churning out hit after hit, deserved the accolade.
And last but not least in matters of Rhythm and Blues it was Alicia Keys who came out on top with her exciting and elevating musical “Girl on Fire”. It was a fun-filled evening where the best in the world of music assembled to elect the elite that existed among their ranks.
