The 55th Annual Grammy Awards were held last night (Feb. 10), and it was business as usual for the famed awards show. Music's biggest names walked the carpet, while shiny golden gramophones were given out to rock artists such as the Black Keys, Halestorm and Trent Reznor + Atticus Ross. However, a sense of disarray resonated with various musicians, who took to Twitter in order to vent their disapproval of the Grammy Awards.
The Black Keys were the big winners of the 2013 Grammy Awards, taking home three trophies (plus one for frontman/producer Dan Auerbach) and performing a memorable version of 'Lonely Boy' with Dr. John and the Preservation Hall Jazz Band.
The Black Keys, already enjoying a big Grammy night winning three statues before the actual telecast and Best Rock Performance during the televised ceremony, carried over the good times to the Staples Center concert stage Sunday night (Feb. 10) at the 2013 Grammy Awards.
Chalk up another award for Nine Inch Nails mastermind Trent Reznor. The rocker, who has taken up film scoring in recent years, joined his musical partner Atticus Ross in winning the Best Score Soundtrack for Visual Media for their work on the film 'The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo.'
Congrats are in order for the Black Keys, and in particular the band's singer-guitarist Dan Auerbach, who had his name mentioned six times when the 2013 Grammy nominations were revealed Wednesday night (Dec. 5). He tied with fun., Jay-Z, Mumford & Sons, Frank Ocean and Kanye West for the most nominations of the evening.
While hard rock and metal bands were snubbed in most of the categories for the 2013 Grammy Awards that were announced tonight (Dec. 5), the one category devoted to those genres features a diverse range of nominees.
Foo Fighters frontman Dave Grohl's acceptance speech at last Sunday's Grammy Awards stirred up a lot of reaction -- both positive and negative -- when he seemed to deride electronic music in favor of using real instruments. However, in a new open letter, Grohl clarifies his speech by saying he is a fan of electronic music and that his words were misinterpreted.
