Beyonce led the pack with 10 nods & ended up making history for the most wins by a female artist in a single Grammy night by scoring six trophies (incl. song of the year for “Single Ladies”). Swift entered with eight nominations and left with four, including one of the event’s most prestigious awards — album of the year! Not sure I understand that win, but hey…
Other big winners: Kings of Leon scored record of the year for “Use Somebody.” The Black Eyed Peas won three awards, including best pop vocal album for The E.N.D., and Jay-Z took home three –one for best rap solo performance and two awards for “Run This Town” with Rihanna and Kanye West (who was a no show).
MY TOP 3 MOMENTS:
1) Lady Gaga & Elton John’s duet:
2) Pink should be part of Cirque du Soleil:
3) Green Day scored big singing with the cast of their Broadway version of American Idiot (and with a Grammy for Best Rock Album):
Finally, special mention goes to the duet of Mary J Blige and Andrea Bocelli — a song that can be downloaded for Haiti relief and just poured chills down my spine:
There you go! Grammy Awards 2010 in a nut shell!
