The Grammys: A Night to Remember
By Erin Neil, Co-Editor in Chief
On February 12th, celebrities flocked to the Staples Center to celebrate Hollywood’s biggest night in music. The show began with Adele’s melancholy hit, “Hello” and continued with a comedic opening number from host James Corden. Throughout the show, audiences heard from Grammy veterans like Alicia Keys, Bruno Mars, and Katy Perry as well as newcomers like Marren Morris, Kelsea Ballerini, and Lukas Graham. With performances like Bruno Mars’ Prince tribute as well as A Tribe Called Quest’s explicitly political set, the Grammys in 2017 kept everyone on the edge of their seat.
By the end of the show, it was time to award the biggest title of the night, “Album of the Year,” and with Beyoncé’s Lemonade as the favorite, it came as a shock to everyone when Adele’s 25 was announced as the winner. Adele even made it clear in her speech that she believed Beyoncé to have created the best album of 2017. However, as the show came to a close, winners and losers left to the after parties and audiences were left with one of the most entertaining awards shows of the season.
