The Grammy’s are all the talk today:
Taylor opened the show with an “Alice in Wonderland” themed performance of her hit “We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together,” and the British accent she shared may have been a little dig at her ex Harry! Loved her line, “I’m too busy opening up the Grammys!”
Carrie Underwood sported a $31 million diamond necklace on the red carpet, and of course the special effects dress she wore for her performance was stunning!
“They can do a lot of amazing things with projectors these days,” Carrie says. “And we had a dress specially made so it would be a dress, but still have a nice projection screen. I said I should take it home and we can watch movies on it!”
Miranda Lambert and Dierks Bentley did a knock-out performance. Too bad the sound wasn’t as good as it should have been.
Hunter Hayes handled performing on music’s biggest night perfectly.
Kelly Clarkson did a spectacular tribute to Patti Page, and her acceptance speech was a refreshing treat!
The tribute to the late Levon Helm was spectacular. Zac Brown was part of that joining all-stars Mavis Staples, Alabama Shakes’ Brittany Howard, Mumford and Sons, Elton John, and T-Bone Burnett.
And the country winners were:
BEST COUNTRY SOLO PERFORMANCE -Carrie Underwood: Blown Away (her 6th)
BEST COUNTRY DUO/GROUP PERFORMANCE- Little Big Town: “Pontoon” (their 1st)
BEST COUNTRY SONG- “Blown Away”: Josh Kear & Chris Tompkins
BEST COUNTRY ALBUM – Zac Brown Band: Uncaged (their 3rd)
Taylor Swift won her seventh Grammy for Song Written for Visual Media with The Civil Wars and T-Bone Burnett for “Safe and Sound” from the Hunger Games soundtrack.
