Welcome to the “Biggest Night of Music” – or, as I mentioned this year, the Sunday night in February, which has a host (Alicia Keys), is not the Oscars (it’s the Grammys) and could not. It does not succeed in convincing Ariana Grande to show up (or Bradley Cooper for that matter, so all the dreams that Jackson Maine pisses on stage have to wait for the Academy Awards.) If this is a death sentence, let’s remember it That women dominate all over the major price categories this year, and Recording Academy boss Neil Portnow, the man who said women should “rise” if they wanted to win more Grammys, has resigned without actually assuming responsibility for his bullshit or the systematics of his institution acknowledge failures that should somehow be enough to make everyone happy. Yay!
Anyway, there are some interrogation questions: Will Beerbongs & Bentleys of Post Malone win big? How many will Grande take home, even if she has decided to sit here? How long does this show last? It’s live blog time, let’s do that.
