The Grammys

Music's biggest award show aired tonight (and is actually still running on the west coast) and even if this wasn't my personal favorite year for music, there's still quite a few things worth mentioning. The thing I like about The Grammys, and all award shows for that matter, is that it introduces the masses to something that people might have looked over otherwise. Because of the Grammys, some of our favorite artists like Norah Jones and Alicia Keys got the mass attention they needed to really put their careers into high gear, so even if it is just an award that stimulates money for big companies, it does in turn do the public a service by showing them these artists and the amazing work they do.

I know that most readers of this blog are tired of Amy Winehouse and her oh so played out song "Rehab" but man she is an amazing artist. Her work received a ton of acclaim tonight, leaving with Grammys for Best New Artist, Record of the Year, Best Pop Vocal Album, and more. I'd also like to point out that the producer of that album Mark Ronson also won for Best Producer of the Year, and if you haven't heard his work on Back to Black or his own album then you should really check it out. Credit also goes out to Kanye West for wins under Best Rap Song and Best Rap Album. My personal wish was that Justice win for Best Electronic album, but it's okay.

The full list of winners can be found here, now go out there and listen to music.
