Grammy Awards 2017

341

Edizione numero 59 andata in scena allo Staples Center di Los Angeles. Adele e David Bowie (5 a testa) fanno incetta di premi confermando i pronostici della vigilia. L’indimenticato artista inglese vince nelle categorie Best Rock Song, Best Rock Performance, Best Alternative Album, Best Recording Package e Best Engineered Album. Tra le performance live certamente da sottolineare il ritorno (dopo circa tre anni) dei Daft Punk assieme a The Weeknd (‘I Feel It Coming‘), la curiosa e fracassona performance di Lady Gaga con i Metallica e quella sicuramente più “diretta” degli A Tribe Called Quest accompagnati da Busta Rhymes, Consequence e Anderson .Paak.
