This year has the 2022 Grammys. We will reach the 64thth edition of the biggest awards in the mainstream music world. And with that, we made a list of 10 curiosities about the event.
1- The person responsible for the event is the Paul Weston, is one of the founders of Recording Academy (formerly known as “National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences (in Portuguese, National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences) organization formed by several facets that circulate music in general. Paul would like to name the award “Eddie” in honor of the Thomas Edison, inventor of the Phonograph device (first device for recording and playing sounds), but later, they decided to honor the Gramophone that goes beyond the name, it is the golden symbol given to the winners of the night.
2- Know Georg Solti? So, he is the person who took the trophy home the most, totaling 31 wins.
3- Speaking of records, we will bring here the artist who appeared the most in the nomination lists: Beyoncé was nominated 66 times! And we keep counting…
4- There is no point without a node. The figurine is not made of gold, nor of iron, nor of steel. The organization decided to create a recipe for ferrous metals, called “grammium”, a combination of zinc and aluminum made especially for the award.
5- It’s okay that the Grammys are a big dog fight, but that doesn’t affect age. Until today, the LeAnn Rimes is the youngest artist to receive the trophy, she was only 14 years old when she won one of the categories. already the Taylor Swift is dedicated to “winner” youngest (20 years old) when receiving the top category, Album of the Year, in 2010.
6- “I won, but I won’t take it!”. Sinead O’Connor was the only person to refuse to accept the award.” ‘false and destructive materialistic values of the music industry’, said the singer in 2019.
7- Who assembles the list of nominees and which artists will take home the award, is an association of musicians, composers, technicians / sound engineers and producers, thus forming the body of judges that changes from time to time.
8- Despite being 90% focused on the North American industry, names like Joao Gilberto, Robert Charles, Sérgio Mendes, Milton Nascimento, Tom Jobim, Gilbert Gil e Caetano Veloso, have already been awarded in the Latin version.
9- If there are no competitors at the time, you will not have the category in the edition. The Academy reserves the right not to award anyone if they do not have “good enough” artists or works to compete.
10- The Grammy it was only televised in its thirteenth edition. It took a while to win over the “lay” audience, well in quotes.
THE Grammy 2022 is momentarily delayed because of the variant, but we have already started to warm up the engines!
