Bruce Springsteen

  Best Hard Rock Performance Grammy Award went to Foo Fighters for the song "All My Life". This lead to a great performance by America's own Bruce Springsteen who performed "The Rising" (album review can be seen here and here). This was followed by the Song Of The Year "Don't Know Why" written by Jesse Harris as performed by Norah Jones who performed earlier in the night. Her album also won the Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical Grammy Award.


N'Sync Bee Gees Tribute

Next up came a tribute to the Bee Gees who have achieved unprecedented success in the music industry. N'Sync gave their salute to the Bee Gees through a music tribute medley.

Alas, then came Eminem to perform music from his recent album and movie. This moved on to the very talented Nora Jones winning yet another Grammy Award, this time for Record Of The Year! Nora is having an amazing night winning many awards, and well deserved i might add. Nominated for five Grammy Awards this year, Sheryl Crow performance with Kidd Rock. A good duet, if a bit unbalanced as Sheryl is a well rounded polished performer while Kidd rock is takes the typical defiant hard-edged rocker approach.

Best New Artist Grammy Award, the one virtually each and every new musician hopes to receive, was won by Nora Jones! This is reminiscent of the landslide Carlos Santana had during a past Grammy Award ceremony. Then the Mayor of New York was glad to host the Grammy Awards and introduced Neil Portnow, President of the Recording Academy. He was proclaiming that the music industry is alive and well, despite reports to the contrary by such organizations as the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA). As a side note, the RIAA does not represent musical artists; instead they (generally) represent the business interests of major record labels.


As a tribute to the late Joe Strummer of the Clash, a tribute "super group" consisting of Little Steven, Dave Grohl, Bruce Springsteen, Elvis Costello, Attractions drummer Pete Thomas and No Doubt's Tony Kanal began playing the Clash song "London Calling".

The night ended with Nora Jones winning the Album Of The Year for Come Away With Me. All in all a wonderful evening filled with many great performances and well-earned praise. As a member of the Recording Academy, tonight brought me much joy and the proud feeling of being part of a great organization! As always, in the end what really matters is that you...

Enjoy the Music,
