The 51st Grammy Awards

Wednesday 11 February, 2009

The Grammys are America’s annual music industry awards. They cover all music genres. Let’s list some award categories… rock, classical, jazz, blues, gospel, pop, dance, alternative, R&B, rap, hip-hop, new age, country, Latin, folk, reggae, polka, children’s, comedy, musicals and soundtracks. Wow, that’s a lot of awards! While I think The Grammys are simply a puppet for the music industry to congratulate themselves, there are still some great musicians amongst it all.

Here are some clips of winning artists and their songs. Unfortunately all YouTube clips of the Grammy awards night have been banned, so clips of live performances have been used. Enjoy!

Song of the Year / Best Pop Performance by a Group or Duo with Vocals / Best Rock Album: Viva La Vida by Coldplay

Best New Artist / Best Female Pop Vocal Performance: Chasing Pavements by Adele

Best Male Pop Vocal Performance: Say by John Mayer

Best Solo Rock Vocal Performance: Gravity by John Mayer

Best Female R&B Vocal Performance: Superwoman by Alicia Keys
