Lorde vince il Grammy per la miglior canzone

JUSTIFY”>Lorde vince il Grammy per la miglior canzoneVINCONO L’AUTRICE DI ROYALS E IL DUO DI GET LUCKY. Si è tenuta ieri sera allo Staples Center di Los Angeles la cerimonia dei 56esimi Grammy Awards. I prestigiosi premi della musica, trasmessi dalla CBS, quest’anno hanno visto il primato, nelle categorie che contano, di artisti non americani. A vincere il grammofono d’oro per la miglior canzone è Royals, successo internazionale della 17enne neozelandese Ella Yelich O’ Connor in arte Lorde, tratta dal suo album di debutto Pure Heroine e arrivata al primo posto nella classifica del singoli di Nuova Zelanda, Italia, Stati Uniti, Canada e Regno Unito. I premi per il miglior album e la miglior produzione (categoria che premia l’intero team che ha prodotto un brano, a differenza di miglior canzone che premia l’autore che l’ha composto) vanno invece ai Daft Punk, rispettivamente per Random Access Memory e il tormentone del 2013 Get Lucky. L’album del duo francese ha vinto anche il Grammy per il miglior album dance/elettronica, per la miglior esibizione di un gruppo pop e il Best Engineered Album per un album non di musica classica, mentre a Lorde va un secondo Grammy per la miglior performance individuale pop.

JAY Z VINCE DUE GRAMMY, BEYONCÈ RIMANDATA ALL’ANNO PROSSIMO. L’artista col maggior numero di nomination della serata, Jay Z, che concorreva in nove categorie, ha vinto due Grammy, Best Music Video e Best Rap Sung Collaboration, entrambi per la collaborazione con Justin Timberlake, rispettivamente nel video di Suit & Tie e per il brano Holy Grail. Grande assente della serata è invece la moglie del rapper, Beyoncé, il cui album omonimo non poteva concorrere perché uscito il 12 dicembre: era quindi al di fuori del periodo 1 ottobre 2012—30 settembre 2013 entro il quale i lavori degli artisti vengono presi in considerazione per una candidatura. Per lo stesso motivo, non erano in nomination neanche Lady Gaga, Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry ed Eminem.

Insieme a Daft Punk e Lorde, possono ritenersi soddisfatti anche Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, che si sono aggiudicati i tre premi delle tre categorie rap. Tra gli snobbati di quest’anno si segnalano Robin Thicke, che non ha preso neanche uno dei ben sei Grammy a cui era candidato, e Lana Del Rey (3 nomination, zero premi).
