Tween girls aren’t the only ones still hopping mad that jazz songstress Esperanza Spalding yanked the Best New Artist prize right out from under Justin Bieber’s bangs at the 53rd Annual Grammy Awards earlier this month.
Ladies & Gents of America: Behold….This. Is. Your. Future.
The Belieber Nation has been in a state of chaos ever since Esperanza Spalding stole the Best New Artist Grammy out from under Bieber’s bangs and now we have evidence of Spalding accidentally breaking a seven-year-old’s heart.
Music’s Biggest Night hit a high note in the ratings Sunday night. The 53rd Annual Grammy Awards aired on CBS over the weekend, drawing the show’s biggest TV audience in over a decade, according to preliminary Nielsen figures. About 26.6 million viewers tuned in to watch the prizegiving and performances by Rihanna, Dr. Dre, Katy Perry, and Lady Gaga, improving on the 2010 audience of 25.37 million viewers by three percent and dominating network rivals like FOX, NBC, and ABC.
That Christina Aguilera just can’t catch a break. The “Star-Spangled Banner” slayer was part of a unique group of divas (including Jennifer Hudson, Martina McBride, Yolanda Adams, and Florence Welch) paying tribute to a noticably-thinner Aretha Franklin at Sunday night’s 2011 Grammy Awards when she nearly took a spill live onstage. Luckily, the five-time Grammy winner was able to break her stumble by grabbing hold of her microphone.
Do you think people are being to harsh on Christina’s Aretha performance?
