Born What Way? Grammy Nominees Explained in Infographics
The Grammy Awards are music’s biggest night! Except for the fact that the MTV Video Music Awards are generally watched by more people. And the Super Bowl halftime show is really the most watched musical performance of the year, when you think about it.
And didn’t Madonna just break a record for selling the most records ever in 50 different countries all in a single day? And don’t they give out an Oscar, the king of all awards, for Best Song during the Academy Awards? And wasn’t the premiere of The Voice watched by like 60 Million people this week?
And really, how could any music-related story of 2012 possibly compete with that whole Christina Aguilera drippy-leg performance?
But still – MUSIC’S BIGGEST NIGHT!
To celebrate, the good folks at New York Magazine have put together a clever little collection of infographics explaining the nominees for Record of the Year and Album of the Year for those of you out there who remain unsure who is a firework, and exactly what Bruno Mars is willing to do for you.
Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Bruno Mars, Rihanna, and Adele all get the infographic treatment here, and a few snoozier artists (Foo Fighters, yay) can be found at New York Mag.
