Grammys stage

The Grammys were held on Sunday night, February 12, 2017, and hosted by James Corden at the Staples Center in Los Angeles, California, with the live broadcast on CBS starting at 8pm EST (5pm PST).

Below are some of the highlights and clips from the broadcast of The 59th Annual Grammy Awards, along with the full list of Grammy winners at the end.

Here’s my usual official Grammys warning: I hate country music, I strongly dislike pop music, and I mostly have no idea about new music that’s not hard rock or heavy metal. I can, though, be objective when talking about a performance when it happens to be really good. With that, when I say I’m writing about the “highlights,” well, it’s the highlights according to me, a metalhead who watched the Grammys, a show that doesn’t even bother to televise the Heavy Metal category. With all of the deaths in the music world in 2016, I was sure that there’d be a lot of tributes, and I was intrigued by the tease of the Metallica and Lady Gaga team-up. Turns out, this year was mostly a snooze-fest, but there were some energetic performances that made up for everything else.

Massive Metal Monday: Dio “The Last In Line”

Ronnie James Dio

As we wipe the Grammy’s spit off of his grave, today’s edition of Massive Metal Monday is dedicated to the memory of metal’s greatest vocalist, Ronnie James Dio.

The last shred of any credibility that the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences ever held amongst the metal community was put to rest last night when the Grammy for “Best Metal or Hard Rock Performance” went to Tenacious D for their cover of Dio’s “Last In Line.” Don’t get me wrong, I love Tenacious D, but they are, at best, a reverent parody of heavy metal. The fact that Grammy voters think that this, or any cover version, is more worthy of recognition than that of any of the hundreds of absolutely stellar original performances turned in across the metal spectrum last year is nothing short of disrespectful and appalling. SHAME ON YOU NARAS!

Meanwhile, let us crank up the legendary original recording of the title track of Dio‘s second album, The Last In Line and salute RJD with the devil horns on one hand and NARAS with a single digit of the other.

Jeff Lynne ELO with perform at the 2015 Grammys

UPDATED WITH VIDEO of the performance – see bottom of this post.

Jeff Lynne, who carved a niche and added some electronically classical elements to rock and roll with the hit after hit 1970s ensemble ELO (Electric Light Orchestra), is set to perform tonight at the 57th Grammy Awards, which will air on CBS. Lynne’s ELO will be performing with Ed Sheeran, the British born latest musical flavor of the month. Alongside the pair will be talent like the legendary piano jazz man Herbie Hancock, guitarist John Mayer, and Questlove from The Roots.

No word on what the ELO lineup will be performing at the Grammys, but with the inclusion of Lynne, it’s a safe bet to say that an ELO tune or two might be heard on the stage, especially when that band had reunited and played its first live show in almost 30 years this past autumn.

In what was one of the most anticipated appearances of the night, legendary metal giants Metallica took the stage on Sunday night at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards to perform their song “One,” accompanied by renowned Chinese concert pianist Lang Lang, and audiences were not disappointed.

Video of the explosive performance is now online – watch it there below.

Metallica, whose Through The Never film soundtrack was nominated this year for a Grammy for Best Recording Package, was the first hard rock band to perform at the Grammy Awards back in 1989, where they were nominated for the then-new category Best Hard Rock/Metal Performance for the album …And Justice For All. They performed “One” at the ceremony, but in one of the most memorable and controversial moments in Grammy Awards history, they lost to classic rockers Jethro Tull. Sunday’s performance was the band’s first time back on the Grammy stage since 1992.
