Adele e Beyoncè regine dei Grammy Awards 2017

Adele e Beyoncè regine dei Grammy Awards 2017

Questa notte c’è stata la notte più importante dell’anno per quanto riguarda la musica: i vincitori dei Grammys Awards sono stati annunciati allo Staples Center di Los Angeles, la celebrazione è stata presentata da James Corden. Regine incontrastate di questi 59esimi Grammy Awards sono Adele e Beyoncè, che hanno portato a casa rispettivamente cinque e due premi. Cinque premi postumi anche per David Bowie, grazie al suo disco Blackstar.

La cerimonia è stata aperta proprio dall’artista inglese di Hello, che ha cantato Fastlove, un omaggio a George Michael. Visibilmente emozionata, Adele ha interrotto la sua performance, per “rifarla al meglio”. Ed alla seconda, si è guadagnata la standing ovation dell’intera sala. Sono suoi cinque tra i premi più ambiti: quello per l’album dell’anno, miglior canzone e migliore performance pop solista per il brano Hello, poi best record e best pop vocal album per 25
La grande favorita della serata, Beyoncè, si è dovuta “accontentare” di due premi – Best music video per Formation e best urban contemporary album per Lemonade. Adele, però, non ha mancato di renderle omaggio con la dichiarazione di stima: “Il tuo album, Lemonade, è semplicemente monumentale”.
David Bowie si è aggiudicato i premi per il Miglior Album Alternative, Miglior Performance Rock, Miglior Produzione di un album Non-Classico e Miglior Recording Package. Doppia vittoria per Drake che si è aggiudicato il grammofono per la Miglior Canzone Rap e Miglior Performance Rap grazie alla sua Hotline Bling
Purtroppo, nessun premio per gli italiani in nomination (Laura Pausini, Ennio Morricone e Andrea Bocelli).

Tra le performance più chiacchierate, spicca quella di Beyoncè che per la prima volta ha mostrato in pubblico il suo pancione – sulle note di Love Drought e Sandcastle – particolarmente apprezzata per l’altissimo profilo (guardala QUI). Bruno Mars ed i Time hanno curato l’omaggio a Prince, cantando i classici Jungle Love, The Bird e Let’s Go Crazy (QUI un estratto della performance).
La performance di Lady Gaga con i Metallica, invece, non è andata come sperato a causa di un problema tecnico che ha fatto infuriare il frontman James Hetfield, che dietro le quinte ha gettato a terra la sua chitarra (QUI la performance).
