In case you happened to miss the event, check out the complete winners list from the 63rd Grammy Awards that will make you realize how did the event occurred.
- The 63rd Grammy of the year 2021 experiences massive curses from fans storming outbursts on twitter and other social media platforms.
- The event was hosted by Trevor Noahand was held in Los Angeles in a constant effort to mitigate the fashion that is inspired from the Covid-19 pandemic.
- The ceremony’s poor viewership ran counter to the general positive reaction from those who tuned in to the scaled-down affair.
- Nominees and artists who were performing on an auxiliary soundstage nearby rotated in and out of the pared-down live audience, so there was no chance of connectivity glitches. The South Korean boy band BTS were however considered an exception during the ceremony as they performed live directly from Seoul, capital of South Korea.
- According to a tweet, the last year’s Grammy Awards ceremony was the 49th most-watched broadcast of the year 2020. Whereas when compared to the 2021 Grammy ceremony that was broadcasted on 14th March, had the lowest rating that is, 2.6 rating out of 10 with only 8.8 million viewers.
- But it’s not just ratings and viewership that plague these major award shows. Myriad diversity and inclusion controversies continue to arise, calling into question the validity and outsize importance of such honors in the first place.
- The poor ratings performance of recent live events is surely an unwelcome omen for the network, as the Oscars are typically the highest-rated of the major award shows. But even before the pandemic provided ratings cover, the February 2020 ceremony had already lost 6 million viewers from 2019.
- There are indeed several drastic drop reasons mentioned by Grammy fans after the streaming.
- On further note, the very first reason put forward the very triumphant of the event broadcasting. The telecast this year was terrific in heights and embarrassing lows to allow train wrecks. After a jumbled, clunky, Zoom-intensive Golden Globes telecast just a few weeks earlier, Winston showed the world how it’s done.
- The most shocking thing witnessed on the event was the holding “pause” before handing Beyonce her 28th Grammy award. This shape was created to acknowledge audience that she just surpassed Alison Krauss for being the most Grammys ever awarded to a female artist.
- When the time came to award the night’s final prize, it had to be Megan Thee Stallion and Beyoncé’s “Savage,”.
- Basically, Megan had already won for the best new artist; “Savage” had already won best rap performance and best rap song; Beyoncé’s “Black Parade” had already won best R&B performance, and her “Brown Skin Girl” had already won best music video (which means that Beyoncé’s 9-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, now has her first Grammy).
- Billie Eilish, for her part, had won only best song written for visual media, for “No Time to Die.” But record of the year went to Eilish, who spent much of her speech apologizing to Megan Thee Stallion for winning.
- The Grammys have a long history of snubbing Black artists at inopportune moments — see, for a notorious example, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis beating Kendrick Lamar in the awards’ 2014 hip-hop categories — and patience is wearing thin.
- Many observers expected the night to be yet another coronation for Taylor Swift, whose album Folklore earned her six Grammy nominations and some of her best reviews. But Swift went 0 for 5 to start, only to take album of the year near the end of the telecast.
- Fiona Apple, inexplicably shut out of nominations in the major categories, won the best rock performance (for “Shameika”) and best alternative music album (for Fetch the Bolt Cutters).
- Kaytranada became the first Black musician to win best dance/electronic album in the category’s 17-year history — an outrageous milestone, given the genre’s origins, but a milestone, nonetheless.
- Last year, Cardi B and Megan Thee Stallion released one of the filthiest songs ever to top the Billboard Hot 100, and “WAP” made its Grammys debut in grandly transgressive, explosively entertaining fashion.
- Somehow, against all odds, none of the performances truly stank. This was the 3 1/2-hour music-industry infomercial the Grammys craved, and the beneficiaries included both the musicians themselves and a home audience that has been starving for live music.
- Trevor Noah deserved more praise than the expectation, even though he didn’t preside over any skits, limited monologues, and few quick jokes, he did a deft job moving the home audience through a complicated hunk of awards-show machinery.
- The issue isn’t that Beyoncé should have won album of the year in 2015 over Beck’s Morning Phase or that Lemonade should have won album of the year in 2017 over Adele’s 25, though both of those outcomes were — with no shade thrown at either winner — hard to stomach. The issue is that it’s getting harder for the Grammys to keep on like this without facing a large-scale revolt from the artists whose buy-in they need to retain a semblance of relevancy.
