47th Grammy Awards


Kanye West: When I had my accident, I found out at that moment nothing in life is promised except death. If you had the opportunity to play this game of life, you need to appreciate every moment. A lot of people don't appreciate their moment until it's passed.


Last year, Kanye West said he was "robbed" when he didn't win top honors at the American Music Awards. Kanye wasn't robbed Sunday night at the Staples1 Center in Los Angeles: The 10-time Grammy nominee2 took the Best Rap Album prize with his debut3 solo disc, The College Dropout4. Here’s the hit single "Jesus Walks," also took the trophy5 for Best Rap Song.




Kanye West's heartfelt acceptance speech in which he mentioned a 2002 car crash which broke his jaw6 in three places came during an evening in which only 11 trophies7 were awarded over more than three hours.


Performances were the name of the game: country stars came together with the surviving members of Lynyrd Skynyrd to salute8 Southern Rock. Salsa star Marc Anthony sang onstage for the first time with his movie star wife, Jennifer Lopez. Teenage British singer Joss Stone joined Melissa Etheridge in saluting9 Janis Joplin.


Janis was one of 10 acts who received Lifetime Achievement Awards. These awards served as the framing device for the telecast, in which modern acts performed in the spirit of their predecessors10.


One musician in particular owned the evening. Dubbed11 "The Genius," Ray Charles overcame poverty and blindness to change the sound of pop music. This year, the Grammy judges awarded him eight posthumous12 trophies. His final effort, Genius Loves Company, hit the market two months after his death last June at age 73. It's the best-selling album of his career and it took Album Of The Year honors. It also contains the Record Of The Year winner, "Here We Go Again," featuring Norah Jones. In accepting the award, Norah spoke13 about working with Ray Charles.


Norah Jones: Oh, man … before these wonderful people who helped make this wonderful record, I would just personally like to say I think it just shows how wonderful music can be. It's at a hundred percent with Ray Charles. How many millions of people has he made smile, and will continue through his records. So, thanks for letting me be part of it.




Four acts collected a mighty14 33 nominations15 in this year's Grammy race. Joining Kanye West and Ray Charles were Usher16 and Alicia Keys, two of today's brightest crossover rhythm and blues17 singers. Friends since they were teenagers, both prospered18 on Sunday night. Each won three awards, while sharing the Best R&B Duo Or Group Performance Grammy with their chart-topping duet, "My Boo."




Sunday's telecast was largely devoid19 of surprises. Many Grammy watchers rightly predicted a big night for Ray Charles, while the play-it-safe mentality20 of Grammy voters was evident in Maroon21 5's selection as Best New Artist. John Mayer was also an obvious Song Of The Year selection with his ballad22, "Daughters."


The evening's most interesting moment arose from the Best Country Album race. Legendary23 singer Loretta Lynn, who had received her sole Grammy back in 1971, took the prize for Van Lear Rose, an edgy24 project she undertook with producer Jack25 White of the alternative rock act The White Stripes. Their duet "Portland Oregon" took the prize for Best Country Collaboration26 With Vocals27.




While many of Sunday's acts paid tribute to their musical forbears, an all-star group turned its attention toward more recent developments. Performing John Lennon's "Across The Universe" was Bono of U2; Brian Wilson; Stevie Wonder; Norah Jones; Alicia Keys; Tim McGraw; and the rock act Velvet28 Revolver. Available as an internet download, their performance will go toward Asian tsunami29 relief.


The Grammy Awards are 47 years old. What began as a handful of industry honors has grown into a musical juggernaut encompassing30 107 categories. Voted on by the 13,000 members of the National Academy Of Recording31 Arts and Sciences, the Grammies have always carried special weight with performers for one reason: Their peers have judged them the best in the business.


Here’s best new artist winner Maroon 5 with “She will be loved”.


I am Ray McDonald.
