Grammys, On Friday night, far from the machinations of the music industry and the pleasure of treating gold gramophones in a great old theater that doubles today that the Ukrainian Center for Culture of Greater Los Angeles, Arcade Fire – the indie band who, to Sunday 53rd Grammy Awards, will face the likes of Eminem and Lady Gaga for Album of the Year – threw what will probably be the largest UN official this week, anti-pre-Grammy party: a sweaty, exuberant, all ages show secret that felt a million miles removed from the award-show hysteria that has descended over much of the city.
Only 500 tickets were sold in a first-come, first served at three locations (a pair of record shops and the venerable El Rey Theatre) Friday afternoon. There was no red carpet outside or inside the VIP area at the eaves of a building yet to develop to 86-years now crumbling on a decidedly gritty stretch of Melrose Avenue. The group gave away “free drinks and cotton candy” before the show begins.
(CP) – A Grammy nomination is the culmination of the hard work of an artist. But for many candidates, it also marks the beginning of another important trip – looking fab day Grammys.
Hillary Scott of Lady Antebellum was kicked on diet and training since the group discovered they were up six awards including album of the year.
“Whenever we are not in the studio, I bite or something falls on my house,” she told The Associated Press in a recent interview.
The country trio will also perform on the live Grammy Sunday, and although Lady A Charles Kelley did not slip into a dress, he looks at what he eats, too.
“I ate lots of fried food, fried chicken during the holidays. So I’m back on the cup a little, but man, it will be difficult to limit alcohol consumption, “he said. “There’s too much to celebrate. So I will not back away from that at all.”
Her drink of choice? Whiskey and water.
“I must have my whiskey,” he said.
The Grammys are Karen Fairchild of country group Little Big Town sweat, but for reasons somewhat different from that of Scott.
“We do not even know what we wear until the day before,” said Fairchild, whose group was nominated for best country performance by a duo or group with vocals for “little white church.”
“We will go there and just wing,” she said.
Miranda Lambert is nominated for three awards and performing on the show for the first time. She said her coach was on the road with her almost daily since November.
“Grammy is like going long. We must prepare ourselves, “she said. “It’s a big deal. So I worked hard, eat well and just my head right to be there.”
Blake Shelton will be her fiance date for the big night.
“I hope we will continue our home Grammys for Valentine’s Day, she said.
The Grammys air live on Sunday.
