Once a year, the well-known Grammy Awards is held and your favorite artists are nominated for awards, but only few are chosen and given the title. This year marked the 60th Grammy Awards Ceremony. The famous event was held in New York City at Madison Square Garden for the first time in 15 years! There were over 19 million viewers worldwide which is the lowest amount since 2009.

The first Grammy Awards was held in 1959 in California at the Beverly Hilton Hotel and had over 47 million viewers. At the Grammys, music artists perform and receive exciting awards. Although only 9 awards are televised, there are actually 84 different categories of awards that artists are nominated for. The main reason watchers tune into the award show is to watch to musical performances. This year Elton John, Miley Cyrus, Kesha, Sam Smith, and Pink were just some of the artists that performed upon the Madison Square Garden stage.  

This year, Bruno Mars, a well-known R&B singer, unexpectedly took the three most important titles. He won album, record, and song of the year for his song “That’s What I Like.”  Alessia Cara, a female singer, whose career just began to flourish this year, won Best New Artist! Ed Sheeran, an English singer and songwriter, was awarded Best Solo Performance for his song “Shape of You” and Best Pop Vocal Album. Though this year’s Grammys weren’t as popular on television, it was just as excited for each artist at Madison Square Garden.
