When award season hits, it’s always the red carpet I look forward to most. The 2016 Grammy’s were no different. The stars were out and they looked un-be-liev-able. Of course, there were a few head-scratchers, but overall everyone was classy, but with a bit of an edge. After all, the Grammy’s are known for crossing boundaries and shaking things up a bit. On Monday, February 15, they certainly did just that. With LL Cool J hosting at the Staples Center, you know it was bound to be a good time.
Below are my picks for best dressed gals: Kacey Musgraves, Carrie Underwood, Demi Lovato and Taylor Swift. And although she isn’t pictured, Adele looked stunning with her black sparkly gown and choppy hair. I love that she’s a bit more casual and seems so much more relaxed on the carpet.
As for the guys? Most look exactly the same. But, there’s one guy who tends to stand out. Not just for his style, but his rugged good looks. Besides, who else has ever worn a suit in that color? You’ve gotta love a man who isn’t afraid to take risks.
Moving right along to the show itself, I have to say that this is one of the first Grammy telecasts that I actually thoroughly enjoyed. So many of my favorite artists shined, including Taylor Swift, Adele, Tori Kelly and James Bay, Carrie Underwood and Sam Hunt, and so on. Then, there was Ed Sheeran winning his first Grammy, Taylor Swift being the first woman to win Album of the Year twice and Little Big Town winning Best Country Duo/Group Performance. And can we take a moment to acknowledge the fact that Adele still sounded FLAWLESS even though the sound gave her crap?
It was a beautiful night for music. Despite the changes in the industry and the means of which we listen to our music, the idea of it is still the same. There are different genres out there, each one meaning something different to everyone. The language of music is universal and it speaks to all of us.
That’s all for now,
