    The 2013 Grammy Awards

    If you failed to watch the 55th annual Grammy Awards this year, just know that you missed out on all the fun! The band, FUN, shocked the audience with a spectacular performance as well as taking home Song of the Year and Best New Artist. Oddly enough, there was a circulated memo to all of those who were attending the Grammys to make sure their attire was appropriate, as they wanted to prevent general wardrobe malfunctions and flashing of skin.  Because of this, artists such as Katy Perry and Jennifer Lopez decided to wear the tightest dresses along with some bits of skin- shocking!

    When not announcing a new guest or performer, host L.L Cool J decided to keep the theme of the Grammys young, mentioning Twitter and bringing up “hashtags” every other second.

    The show started with Taylor Swift opening up with “We Are Never Getting Back Together.” As Bill Maher stated, “Maybe she should make a song called Maybe it’s ME”. The tweeters definitely loved the following performance when Ed Sheeran and Elton John melted the stage with “A Team.”

    After, when FUN took on the stage to perform “Carry On,” it started to rain. Rihanna was sitting nearby – maybe they should have asked for her umbrella. In the midst of all this, Johnny Depp arrived on stage. It seems he accidentally wore his Pirates of the Caribbean outfit to the Grammys.

    I must say, Twitter was on fire during Maroon 5 and Alicia Keys’ remix of “Daylight” and “Girl on Fire.”

    Rihanna gave a heart-felt performance with her new hit “Stay.” She definitely poured out her emotions all on the stage.

    At the end of the Grammys, there was a very interesting tribute to Bob Marley with stars such as Bruno Mars. The Lumineers’ “Ho Hey”got the rest of the audience out of their seats and singing along. It was definitely an all time favorite song!

    All in all, 2013 Grammys was a successful night that shocked the crowd with winners and performances. There was even a few flashing of skin here and there, but hey, that’s L.A for you!
