The 2024 Grammy Awards Show marked its 66th ceremony, which is held to honor and recognize the many artists who have excelled this year in the music industry. As some of the country’s best musical artists hit the red carpet and receive awards based on their musical talent, millions of viewers tune into the show at home. Of the many award categories, some of the most popular include Album of the Year, Song of the Year, Best New Artist, and Best Rap Album. However, this year’s show was extremely captivating due to the many debated wins and losses for some artists. For example, for her 14th Grammy win, Taylor Swift won Album of the Year for her 2022 pop album, Midnights. However, not everyone in the PDS community agreed this was a well-deserved win. Senior Tyler Nelson explained “Her album was okay but wasn’t great…..Other people who should’ve won would be like SZA, as her album was really good.” However, another PDS student has different opinions, as they believe “The win was well deserved. [Swift] is one of the most successful women in the industry and Midnights had already broken so many records.” 

Still, despite arguments over this particular award, the show had many outstanding musical performances by various artists. As seen with Billie Eilish’s strong, emotional rendition of “What Was I Made For” from the Barbie film soundtrack, she invoked heartfelt tears among the audiences. Following her act, soon later, was another young singer, Olivia Rodrigo who courageously sang her heart out in her hit song “Vampire”. Her performance, in particular, had resonated with many PDS community members as noted by sophomore Hannah Kim, “Her performance had seemed to be very passionate, which was enjoyable to watch.” In addition to Gen-Z artists crushing the stage, older artists, such as Joni Mitchell, had also performed their most popular hits from the 70s and 80s, warming the hearts of older viewers.

 So, that leaves the question: Was the Grammy’s worth watching? The answer is quite simple- although there was debate over a particular award, the show was still an overall incredible and spectacular event that nobody should miss!
