BlackTree TV covers the 55th GRAMMY Awards Red Carpet.
No one dominated this year: fun. took the first two of the big four awards, but then nothing, and a quartet of acts wound up the night with three apiece. If you have to pick a winner, The Black Keys get it with an asterisk due to Dan Auerbach’s producer Grammy.
Once again, the emphasis was on performances over awards: just 10 awards presented in 210 minutes, and the final award didn’t end the night, as the show went to commercial, then came back to a performance by host LL Cool J with Chuck D, Tom Morello, and Travis Barker.

3 — The Black Keys — Best Rock Song, “Lonely Boy” ~ Best Rock Performance, “Lonely Boy” ~ Best Rock Album, “El Camino” (plus Producer of the Year, Non-Classical for Dan Auerbach)
