Song of the Year is huge. HUGE. Nice win for Sam Smith.
That, friends, was powerful. A commentary on our celebrity-obsessed culture?
“Chandelier” is nominated for Record of the Year and Song of the Year, our two remaining categories. Will she take both? One?
This is interpretive and sad and I, for one, am quite moved by it. You too?
Songs come to her in a creative gust. She wrote Rihanna’s “Diamonds” in 14 minutes and the melody and lyrics to David Guetta’s “Titanium” in 40 minutes.
BUT she built a resume as a prolific writer of radio hits for stars including Christina Aguilera (“You Lost Me”), Beyonce (“Pretty Hurts”), Britney Spears (“Perfume”), Maroon 5 (“My Heart is Open”), and a heap of others in the meantime.
I’m going to sketch out a little Sia bio for us while we hear this soaring, awesome song: Sia spent much of the last decade avoiding the spotlight. The fame-phobic singer appeared on the cover of Billboard wearing a bag over her head, and with her back to the audience during a performance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show.”
Here she is, with the monster hit anybody who’s turned on a radio in the last couple months will know instantly. It’s “Chandelier.” She wants to swing from one, and we want her to, too. No fear, Sia!
Did you know? Sia garnered acclaim earlier this year with her soaring performance of "Chandelier" on "Saturday Night Live." For her GRAMMY performance she's joined by SNL star Kristen Wiig. You might remember her as the "Target Lady." "Chandelier" is the year's only work to be nominated for both Record Of The Year and Best Music Video.
Actually, is anybody wondering how all these artists prep for such a huge show? What they might whisper to themselves to calm their nerves before taking the stage?
Anybody out there wondering how the notoriously shy Sia will handle her upcoming performance?
All that remains are Song of the Year and Record of the Year. Let us know who you’re gunning for — we here at the liveblog are on the edge of our seats, too.
I can hear Beyoncé sound checking in front of me. She's about to shut it down.
Prince should have won a GRAMMY for best walkout. I mean, if anybody could win one, he would.
We are sliding into the finish line of Music’s Biggest Night, can you believe it? Only two more awards to go.
The Music Educator Award is a big deal. Do you have a favorite music teacher? Someone who lit up your musical world?
Prince: a pumpkin-hued feast for the eyes. All he has to do is be present and we're captivated.
Beck has won the Grammy for Album Of The Year and Kanye West jumped out of his seat and faked like he was going to rush the stage. Now that was funny.
Heartfelt congratulations from all of us to Beck, right? Are you clapping your hands there on your couch?
