THE GRAMMYs 2020: A Harris Review

It is safe to say that this year’s annual GRAMMY awards were quite the show. First and foremost – R.I.P to the late Kobe Bryant, you will be greatly missed. Secondly, lets talk about Alicia Keys’ phenomenal hosting performance – not only did this 15-time GRAMMY award winning singer captivate the audience with her ever-changing looks throughout the night, but the way she spoke and kept the audience engaged was absolutely brilliant. Alongside Mrs. Keys, there were a couple particular individuals that stole the show – most obvious of them all was of course Billie Eilish. It is important to note that not only did the girl take home five GRAMMYs that night, but she is also the youngest individual to ever be nominated for a GRAMMY in the Recording Academy’s history (prior to her, the title was held by Mariah Carey when she first got nominated at the age of 20). Aside from Billie, the night was filled with interesting performances from people like Tyler The Creator who took home “Rap Album of the Year” with IGOR, Usher’s tribute to Prince and of course, Demi Lovato’s emotional performance of “Anyone”, written about her overdose experience and her battle with substance abuse. All in all, the night was a success even though there was quite some controversy leading up to it. Until the next GRAMMYs and here’s to more diversity and inclusion in the music business.
