The Grammy Awards 2014 took place on 26th January in Los Angeles. As well as stars receiving their awards, the audience were treated to performances including from Beyonce and Jay Z, Paul McCartney, Katie Perry, Madonna and Daft Punk, who also walked away with five awards including Album of the Year and Best Pop/Duo Group Performance.
After awards like The Grammies, when you want to refer quickly and easily to a list of winners, using a music portal site such as rockol can really speed things and, if you weren’t able to catch the ceremony live, you’ll soon know whether your favourite acts were successful.
Split into many categories, including Pop, Dance, Rock, R&B, Rap, Alternative and Country, the awards reflected the huge spectrum of the current popular music scene. However, the Grammy Awards cover much more than this.
There are categories for Spoken Word, Comedy Song and best Children’s Song. Nor are Latin American, Reggae or World Music overlooked. The age range of the award winners was impressive: from the New Zealand newcomer Lorde who won Best Solo Performance for Royals to Paul McCartney who won Best Rock Song for Cut Me Some Slack.
The Grammys show what a truly global industry the music business has become. And one which, with the aid of technology, anyone can follow and be involved in as it happens, wherever they live. The internet, particularly the use of a music portal site, means that we can all truly be singing the same songs.
