2016 Grammy Awards: See Rock + Metal Photos From Red Carpet + Live Show
The 2016 Grammy Awards is bringing out the stars, and while not everyone goes home a winner, there are many rockers who looked absolutely marvelous. In this post, we take a look at some of the rockers attending the Grammy Awards via red carpet, podium and performance photos.
Though Foo Fighters were shut out during the pre-telecast ceremony, the band looked like they were having a good time as they walked the red carpet. Dressed up for “music’s biggest night,” the guys stopped to pose for the photographers before heading into the festivities.
Meanwhile, one of the biggest attractions on the red carpet was the all-star collective Hollywood Vampires. The band, which features founding “vampires,” Alice Cooper, Joe Perry and Johnny Depp, mingled with the crowd, posed for photos, then took some time to collect themselves before their big performance backstage.
And if you missed the pre-telecast, where a majority of the Grammy Awards are given out, there was something for both rock and metal fans. Highly Suspect, who were double nominees, did not win either category, but they won over the crowd with their performance of “Lydia” to an enthusiastic response during the pre-tel ceremony. Meanwhile, the biggest category of interest to metal fans was the Best Metal Performance, where Ghost took home the Grammy gold. Papa Emeritus III spoke on behalf of the masked rockers and gladly accepted the honor.
