Macklemore & Ryan Lewis are the leaders in the rap game after taking home three Grammys.
The duo triumph in all four of their categories (Best New Artist, Best Rap Performance, Rap Song and Rap Album); beating the likes of Jay-Z, Drake and obviously Mr ‘Yeezus’ himself, Kanye West (he’ll be absolutely gutted). Rihanna took home best Urban Contemporary Album for her album “Unapologetic” while Alicia Keys work “Girl on Fire” has been recognised as the Best R&B Album. In the jazz pop arena, it’s Michael Buble, who swoon his way to get a Grammy gem for his album “To Be Loved”.
Also taking home quintriple (five) of those Grammys masterpieces were Daft Punk. They came out on top in Best Album of The Year, Best Dance/Electronica Album, Best Song, Best Engineered Album (Non-Classical) and Best Duo/Pop Performance of “Get Lucky” featuring producing mogul Pharrell Williams. Despite always hiding their identity, their album “Random Access Memories” has proven to be a big hit. I became in love with after the launch of their video of “Around The World” was released in 1997. Still 80% (please don’t take my estimates seriously) of their tracks are on my playlist…
…I even have this dream of placing one of their helmets as a souvenir in my ornament unit. I know guys, it’s weird. Speaking of Mr Pharrell Williams, he won Best Non-Classical Producer of the Year!
Anyways, the only thing that we were waiting for was the performance of the night…or should I say in the history of Grammy Gems. The Bonnie & Clyde. Yes, Queen B (Beyonce) and Jay-Z; aka the power couple. Aka the Carter Clan (wondering if Beyonce has placed her name as Knowles-Carter or just Carter because she placed Mrs Carter as the theme of the tour). Their performance surely DIDN’T disappoint. Being together for 11 years and they’re still #…be all night with love…love# (please note that this is my reedit of the song).
After that exclusive opening, many viewers switch channels.
While that was happening (you know, ‘flipping’ to another channel), the celebration of the Grammy Gems continued. With Jay-Z winning Best/Rap Sung Collaboration for “Holy Grail” featuring Justin Timberlake. Referencing to his daughter Blue Ivy as to how it’ll be used as a trophy-sipping-cup. Nice for a child’s play. Even his companion Timberlake won Best Music Video for “Suit & Tie” (come on now, you can’t deny that it was effortless).
Adele’s vocals to the 007 movie “Skyfall” got the Grammy gem acclaim for both Best Score Soundtrack For Visual Media and Best Song Written For Visual Media.
Many of you that are tuning into my blog are intrigued to see my unprofessional-unlicense-non-expertise verdict of the fashion. Once again, celebrities are in love with the metallic and neutrals as worn by Katy Perry, Beyonce, Rita Ora and John Legends missus Chrissy Tiegen (who looks like a million bucks in her Johanna Johnson gown).
My verdict? Well, Beyonce’s Michael Costello dress has got her working it in every curve! Although it’s debatable by fashion critics as to whether her hair should have been lengthened with nice curls. According to many, her hair is too casual for this dress. I guess she wanted to do something different. Afterall, she took a risk with the dress. However preferably, she would have been smoking if she had long luscious curls instead of short waves. That would’ve done the trick.
For Rita Ora, I actually love her look. Her Alexandre Vauthier dress is fresh from the catwalk. What more can I say, she looks stunning.
We’ve seen the transition of fashion by Katy Perry over the few Grammy years. Therefore, her music-noted encrypted dress by Valentino’s Couture Collection Spring 2014 is an icing on the cake. Plus, her make-up and hair adds to the whole look. Whether she’s looking elegant or not, you can never take away the Katy Perry we all love. The fact that her dress is encrypted with music notes makes her outfit the perfect fashion-envy (take note: ideal dress for prom and wedding season).
Launching into the SS14, we’re already seeing the obsession of reds and oranges as worn by Tamar Braxton, Pink, Guilana Rancic, Natasha Bedingfield and Gloria Estefan who wore Alex Perry, Gustavo Cadile and Johanna Johnson
Oh well, another Grammy ceremony has gone by. It’s gone very quick hasn’t it? We have to tune in again next year. Therefore ladies and gentlemen, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Lorde, Daft Punk and Jay-Z are your Grammy Gems of 2014.
That’s all for now.
