Grammy Awards: 2016

Grammy Awards: 2016

This year’s Grammys were fraught with performances, mess ups, and Pitbull attempting to close a show.  Along with a somewhat lacklustre show, even Adele had some problems, after the piano in her performance sounded out of tune.


Gaga also performed for us, in a mash-up tribute to David Bowie which many have dubbed a little over-enthusiastic. Even Bowie’s own son.


Kendrick Lamar bagged the most trophies for his efforts in the last year, scoring a massive 11 nominations, beating Eminem’s record for most nominations in one night, and almost beating MJ for the most nominations ever.
