This past Sunday, the 57th Annual Grammy Awards was aired. Celebrities filled the Los Angeles atmosphere with iconic musicians including Rihanna, Beyoncé, Kanye West, and AC/DC. The stage was on fire with the latest and current music we have out right now.

Grammys are meant to be earned for having music that attracts people’s ears and that you can just be free-spirited while listening to music. Popular solo artist Sam Smith took the Grammys away with his explosive performance featuring Mary J. Blige. The artist took home four Grammys. He was nominated for:  Grammy Award for Album of the Year, Grammy Award for Song of the Year, Grammy Award for Best Pop Vocal Album, and Grammy Award for Record of the Year. He took the Grammys by storm.

Paul McCartney, Rihanna, and Kanye West blew the show up with their new single “FourFiveSeconds.”. It was an unforgettable performance. AC/DC was the opening act for the Grammys with their new single and then transformed back to the classic old rock music. Sam Smith performed his hit single “Stay with Me” with a guess performer, Mary J. Blige. The stage was lit on Sunday with so many talents on stage and some actually being the first to ever attend the Grammys and to perform as well.

This year’s Grammys was a success again. Music is very influential to many people around the world and maybe someday you’ll get that experience to hit that stage and give the world what they want!
