DeadSplinter Up! All Night: Grammys

They don’t make ’em like this anymore:

I loved this CD a lot.

(Not technically the Grammys, but I couldn’t find a good video of her on them that year.)

Got any memorable awards show moments to share? Who do you think should win an award?

As always, thank you for your support of DeadSplinter and DUAN.

  1. I don’t really pay attention to The Grammys , but everyone has seen or heard the great Aretha Franklin filling in for Pavarotti in 1998.

    Nessun Dorma

     

     

     

     

     

  2. i think its been years since ive seen an award show of any kind…. reception is poor under this here rock…
    i think this is about the last award i remember seeing…and its not even music

  3. Never mind the whole Jethro Tull travesty.  In 1991, a fucking Metallica cover of a fucking Queen song won the Grammy over what is now widely regarded as the greatest thrash metal record of all time:

  4. The Grammys broadcast used to include all genres, not just pop.  While I love pop, a two-hour celebration of all things Dua Lipa is just too much for me.  Have some interesting artists, for chrissake, not just the top five of the top 40. There’s a lot of great music out there.  Also, while I’m ranting, I believe the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Should be burned to the motherfucking ground.

  5. [The Grammys and AMAs have been dead to me since younger me saw Ace of Base collecting an award one year.]
    I’m going to take a small hop and consider the Mercury Prize ceremony and “awards show” that ultimately has but one category and award. 
    The Young Fathers perform “GET UP” at 2014 Mercury Prize show: 

    Meanwhile, the BRIT Awards are reliable for unique spectacles, mashups, and collaborations. 
    Kylie performs “Can’t Get Blue Monday Out of My Head” at 2002 BRITs: 

    PJ Harvery and Björk cover “Satisfaction” at 1994 BRITs: 

  6. Jeff has been nominated & won a group one but definitely deserves his own.  He is one of the greatest guitarists in his genre I have ever seen & one of the most passionate & humble artists I have ever met.
