Leer en español: Esto fue lo que pasó en los Grammy
This Sunday, January 26, the Grammy Awards were given by The Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences, which are awarded to the best and most popular of the American music industry of the year. The delivery takes place only a few days after the president of the Academy was dismissed and made complaints of sexual harassment and irregularities in the Grammy vote.
Here we summarize what happened.
Billie Eilish razed
It was known in advance that the young singer is a teenage phenomenon. With only 18 years, he took home four Grammys, three of which are from the three most important categories: Song of the Year (Bad Guy), Record of the Year (Bad Guy) and Album of the Year (When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?)
With this, she becomes the youngest artist to take the Grammy triad. He also takes the prize to Best New Artist and her brother Phineas O'Connell, with whom she works all her hits, takes the prize to Producer of the year.
Tributes to Nipsey Hussle and Kobe Bryant
Unfortunately, the Grammy Awards were held the same day the death of basketball player Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gigi was confirmed in a helicopter accident. Since the Grammys are held in Los Angeles, the home of the Lakers, where Kobe Bryant played, the city was mourning. Thus, a tribute to Kobe Bryant was included in the tribute to Nipsey Hussle, the rapper killed in a shooting almost a year ago, which they already had prepared. The interpretation of this tribute sense was carried out by great artists such as DJ Khaled, John Legend, YG, and others.
For their part, Boyz II Men and Alicia Keys improvised an exclusive tribute to Kobe Bryant and sang a version of "It's too hard to say Goodbye."
