And the award shows keep on coming! Ya gotta love this time of year. One awards show after another – a fantastic way to chase away these very cold, winter blues.
The Grammy Awards show will be televised live from the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Sunday, January 26th at 8:00 PM on CBS.
A list of all the Nominees are available on the official Grammy awards site.
And, if you are my age, then you will barely recognize anyone. Buried in there are two of my favorite performers, Michael Buble and Jazz artist, Dave Koz. Methinks hell will freeze over if the Grammy committee ever invites these talented artists to perform on their show.
Additionally, a list of the performers and presenters are also available on Grammy.Com. Once again, it is a lacklustre list in my opinion. Is it just me, or is this list a rehash of last year’s show?
I will keep my fingers crossed that Bruno Mars and Justin Timberlake take all the awards – these are the only singers to whom I can remotely relate! As well, as The Buble and The Koz.
The only bright spot is that The Beatles will receive a lifetime achievement award and Carole King was honored on January 24th with the 2014 MusiCares Person of the Year.
So, there is a glimmer of light for those of you – like me – who are having problems transitioning to this new age of music and the new, but not Improved, version of LIVE television – and I use the word live loosely. Very loosely.
For the Madonna fans, the legendary singer is set to dazzle on Sunday, so that’s something, even if she is not one of my personal favorites.
So there you have it! Another year of music or, what one perceives as music, up for celebration and festivity. Either way, I am tuning in – maybe my cynical old self will be presently surprised. Maybe. Doesn’t hurt to try, does it?
What about you? Will you be tuning in? How do you feel about the nominees, performers and presenters’ lists? Are you, like me, a tad lost or disappointed?
