Tonight is the most magical night of the year. Red carpet, music, dancing, beautiful stars in stunning attire, awards…could it get any better? Only with a glass of champagne. Award season is well under way and tonight is music’s biggest night. The 54th Annual Grammy Awards begin tonight at 8 EST, with red carpet coverage beginning as early as 5. Believe me when I tell you I will be watching every second. Watching the Grammy’s is just one of my guilty pleasures. There’s nothing better than planting myself on the best seat in the house with a cocktail (used to be Boone’s Farm when I was a starving college student and before I refined my tastes) to see hours of performances, wins and disappointments. Plus sometimes there’s just weird stuff that happens, like when Lady Gaga arrived in that pod thing. I mean, what was that?
Some performers to watch for include Adele who will be performing for the first time since her vocal cord surgery last fall. The Beach Boys will reunite for the first time in two decades to perform with Maroon 5 and Foster the People. And of course with the passing of music legend Whitney Houston there will no doubt be somber moments. If everything goes as planned, those who deserve recognition will get it and well see a lot of kickass performances.
So I raise my glass and propose a toast. Yay, music!
