The Grammys 2012 – The Best Of The Best

grammys 2012

The artists arrived on the red carpet of the Grammy Awards with their eyes shining with emotion, with the expectation to see the winners on the music scene from the past year, but also with great recognition given to the singer Whitney Houston, who died on February 11, 2012, at the age of 48 years.

The Ceremony

The 2012 Grammy awards started with the appearance of Bruce Springsteen and his E Street Band on stage. It provided the energizing beginning and gave a positive tone for the evening. The crowd reacted accordingly, and you could even see Paul McCartney singing the words of “We take care of Our Own”. grammys 2012
grammys 2012 Bruno Mars has offered the next performance, on the brightly lit up Grammy stage. The twenty six year old singer was dressed in fifties style outfit colored in golden brown while performing the song “Runaway”.
Chris Brown has also came up few minutes later with an electrifying performance, showing his spectacular hip hop moves on the hits “Turn Up the Music” and “Beautiful People”. grammys 2012
grammys 2012 Kelly Clarkson hit the stage alongside Jason Aldean. The duo belted out the song “Don’t You Wanna Stay” making the whole ceremony a little more tender.
The “Foo Fighters” have barely kept pace to diversify the stage with the impressive punk rock piece “Walk”. grammys 2012
grammys 2012 The screams could not be sustained during the performance of Rihanna and Coldplay. Rihanna climbed alone on stage, singing the first tunes of “We Found Love” a cappella. Then the song took off, with many dancers came on stage, dressed in long boxers.
Chris Martin then joined the singer to perform their new duet song “Princess of China”, appearing on the last Coldplay album. grammys 2012
grammys 2012 One of the most anticipated events of the the evening was undoubtedly the “Beach Boys” performance along with “Maroon 5″ and “Foster the People”. “Maroon 5″ began with “Surfer Girl”. “Foster the People” then hit the crowd with their interpretation of “Would not it Be Nice”.
Brian Wilson finally arrived with the rest of his band. It was so impressive to see the Beach Boys … The group with so many awards and successes, but who has never laid their hands on the Grammy statue, or ever performed on the ceremony. They started with “Good Vibrations”, an excellent choice! The moving energy was being transmuted to the crowd and there were good vibes among the audience! grammys 2012
grammys 2012 There we no any imperfections in the performance of Paul McCartney. Always fit, always pleasing. The old Beatle went the traditional route, dressed in a tuxedo, while Joe Walsh backed him on the guitar and Diana Krall played the piano. Paul McCartney performed “My Valentine” from his latest album “Kisses on the Bottom”.
Taylor Swift, the Grammy sensation from 2010 was chosen to present the piece “Mean”. Dressed like she is going to pick berries, the artist still managed to confirm that she is worthy of her fame and the position. grammys 2012
grammys 2012 Katy Perry offered nothing spectacular … Dressed in latex with cotton candy blue hair, she added a dose of vulgarity to the performance.
Luckily, Adele, knew how to brighten the stage with her great class. It was simply perfect. She seemed to float during the performance of “Rolling in the Deep”, which was just named the song of the year. grammys 2012
grammys 2012 Nicki Minaj appeared as well accompanied by a man who was dressed like the Pope. As usual, her performance was quite controversial. She appeared dressed head-to-toe in a scarlet Versace creation designed especially for her. Her number was somewhat spooky.
But luckily the ceremony still ended on a high note, with Paul McCartney bringing back the Beatles memorabilia. grammys 2012

 

Tributes to Whitney

grammys 2012 From the first minutes of the opening ceremony, extracts from performance os Whitney Houston have been broadcasted, in recognition of her enormous talent. Alicia Keys sang for her, when presenting the first prize of the evening, Stevie Wonder played the harmonica for her.
The culmination was when Jennifer Hudson took over the stage to say goodbye to Whitney. She sang a tribute prepared in less than 24 hours, but everything was perfectly in place. Hudson was brave to sing for Whitney, and she accomplished the task with grace and posture that Whitney would have had if she was on the Grammy stage that night. grammys 2012
