Sometimes the best part of award season is the red carpet! The Grammy Awards were held in Los Angles on Monday night at the Staples Center. By now you know who stole the show, who wore it well, who won, who didn’t win, who should have won, who canceled their performance at the last minute, whose microphone didn’t work, etc.
Lady Gaga is clearly on a roll, she’s fresh off her stellar anthem performance at the Super Bowl and wowed us again with a spectacular tribute to David Bowie at the Grammys. I never got a chance to see David Bowie live but I loved his music and clearly Gaga does as well, also paying homage to his sense of style on the red carpet.
With so many musical icons passing away in recent weeks and months, I’m sure the Grammys had a heck of a time deciding who to pay musical homage to and who to simple post in a sliding memorandum. Nine time Grammy winner Natalie Cole’s family was none too happy with her simply being presented as part of a sliding tribute. I tend to agree that she was owned more than just a passing slide but I was a huge fan so I’m a bit biased.
