During this season of awards shows, the one I can’t wait to see each year is the Grammys. As one can imagine, by working at a station like Magic that plays some of the best songs ever made – from back in the day to today – music is an extremely important part of my life. The ability to express emotions through lyrics and sound and leaving the rest to the imagination has always fascinated me. While music styles come and go, one thing remains the same – music is a universal language. No matter what kind you like or dislike, we all have those songs that make us feel something deep inside – or just make us feel better during a crazy day!
So naturally, the Grammys are tops on my list when it comes to awards. On top of the amazing performances each year, it’s extremely exciting to see how so many of the artists and songs we introduce you to on Magic fare when the envelopes are opened and the winners announced. (Not surprisingly, they often do extremely well!) A ton of them are nominated for various awards – “What About Us” by P!nk, “Shape of You” by Ed Sheeran, “Something Just Like This,” by the Chainsmokers and Coldplay and more!
Seeing the acceptance speeches and seeing so many of the artists for who they are – everyday people (who just happen to have a few million dollars more than we do) – can be extremely inspiring.
And, who can resist seeing what new things Lady Gaga and P!nk will bring to the table as performers during the show as well. (There are plenty more acts still to be announced, so let’s wait and see what other surprises are in store!)
So, you know what I’ll be doing the night of January 28th – sitting eagerly in front of the TV, probably with a few snacks and definitely a glass of wine. Let’s see how many of our favorite songs and artists take home the gold!
