How about taking a break from all that political “mumbo jumbo” on TV and celebrate this special Monday here in North America with style and substance? Set your timer, DVR, mental note to remind you that there is more to life than politics. There is this wonderful, heartwarming, positive force called music and the best of the best of this sublime art form will be celebrated on Monday, February 15th at 8:00 PM when CBS airs the 58th Grammy Awards.
And, if you need further coaxing, here are 58 REASONS, courtesy of the Grammys, why you should tune in. It is a really terrific list and it acknowledges artists from every genre except classical – which saddens me. Hello? We do exist Grammy people. And, the last time I listened, classical artists are pretty amazing. And, actually, – at second glance – they forgot the crossover artists and big band artists like Michael Buble (unless you want to lump Jazz into this category – which would make most jazz purists shudder with shock).
At any rate, it is always a great evening of phenomenal and memorable performances. Last year’s show was amazing and I expect no less from this year’s offering.
So pop the popcorn and gather the family around the TV! It’s a great way to end your day and start your week. Oh – and comment away below. Let me know which performances peaked your interest or if your favorite artist won (yay) or lost(boo).
