Awards season is upon us, and after the activism and serious nature of the Golden Globes, it’s time to get ready for the the Grammys. The 60th annual Grammy Awards ceremony will be held on Jan. 28 at Madison Square Garden in New York City, returning to the Big Apple after a 15-year run in Los Angeles.
The Grammy Awards honor artistic achievement, technical proficiency, and overall excellence in the recording industry. And whether your favorite artist is nominated or not, the award show itself includes many memorable performances to keep viewers engaged. Who can forget Sting, Ziggy and Damian Marley, Bruno Mars, and Rihanna’s tribute to reggae legend Bob Marley in 2013?
