Good Morning Music Movie Family! So the 55th Annual Grammy Awards will air tonight 8pm EST on CBS, and to be honest I’m not overly excited. But, there are a few moments I am looking forward to, including the Sting, Bruno Mars, and Rihanna performance. Why you ask? Well I don’t know about you but every time I hear “Locked Out of Heaven,” I’m wishing that “Every Little Thing She Does is Magic” follows! Don’t necessarily know how Rihanna fits into the Grammy equation; but I guess we will all find out tonight won’t we?
I’m also looking forward to the Song of the Year category and would love to see Miguel win for “Adorn,” but am feeling the songwriting team behind that Kelly Clarkson hit “Stronger” or Carly Rae Jepsen, songwriter of that bubble gum hit “Call Me Maybe” heard EVERYWHERE, might walk away with the award. You can check out the rest of the Grammy nomination list at http://www.grammy.com/nominees.
What I’m most excited about is one of my all time favorite singers, the legendary Chaka Khan who celebrates 40 years in the music industry this year, receive her tribute on tomorrow’s BET Honors. The broadcast will air Monday night at 9pm EST on BET. Now there are several artists who performed and paid tribute to the honorees, including Brandy, Mint Condition, Alicia Keys, and the SOS Band featuring Jimmy Jam and Terry Lewis. But my girls Erykah Badu and Ledisi were also in the house, and I’m willing to bet they sang the heaven into a Chaka song! Can’t wait to see, how about you? Also included this year as BET Honorees are Halle Berry, Bishop T.D. Jakes, Lisa Leslie, and music industry legend Clarence Avant (if you don’t know his name, look him up!).
Alright that’s it for me Music Movie Lovers. Stop back by and let me know what you liked, or didn’t, about the shows. Going to leave you with some of that Bruno Mars below 🙂
Until next thought, Thomasena
