The Grammys are back in New York City !!!!!
The 60th Annual Grammy Awards ceremony was held on January 28, 2018. The CBS network broadcast the show live from Madison Square Garden in New York City. It was the first time since 2003 that the ceremony was held outside Los Angeles (where the Staples Center had been the home of the Grammys since 2004). James Corden returned as host.
The ceremony recognizes the best recordings, compositions and artists of the eligibility year, which ran from October 1, 2016 to September 30, 2017. The nominations were announced on November 28, 2017. The "pre-telecast" ceremony (officially named The Premiere Ceremony) was be held on the same day prior to the main ceremony.
I was the Department Supervisor for Glam (25 assistants) so it was a 3 ring Circus getting Lady Gaga's backup singers ready along with Daddy Yankee, Rihanna, SZA & Despacito but I LOVED every minute of it :)
I truly hope the Grammys come back to NYC!!!
The day after the Grammys, while all the stars are still in town ... Lets do another show !!!
That Monday Lady Gaga had to do her pre tape for Elton as she had to catch a plane to London at 8:00pm so she was gorgeous as ever and professional. She wanted all her strings and back up dancers in clean nude colors as she was in all white looking angelic singing one of Elton's famous songs.
The next day was jammed packed with all stars on deck to pay tribute to Elton John by singing one of their favorite songs.
My favorite was Ed Sheeran NAILING one of Elton's songs (I don't want to give it away as it airs next month)
Just to name a few artists... there was Miley Cyrus, Miranda Lambert, Kesha, John Legend, and Little Big Town, among others.
It was a beautiful tribute to a real icon Sir Elton John.
