Billie Eilish e Lizzo dominano i Grammy 2020

Quella tra domenica e lunedì è stata la notte dei Grammy, i premi più importanti della discografia americana, consegnati durante la cerimonia presentata da Alicia Keys allo Staples Center di Los Angeles. A conquistare il bottino più sostanzioso Billie Eilish e Lizzo: la prima ha vinto nelle categorie più ambite – tra cui Album Of The Year, Best New Artist e Record Of The Year con Bad Guy – mentre la seconda ha trionfato nelle categorie Best Pop Solo Performance, Best Traditional R&B Performance e Best Urban Contemporary Album. Tra i vincitori anche Tyler nella categoria Best Rap Album con IGOR e i Vampire Weekend nella categoria Best Alternative Music Album con Father Of The Bride.

Durante la premiazione è stato più volte ricordato Kobe Bryant, il campione di NBA morto ieri sera in un incidente aereo. «Questa serata è per Kobe», ha annunciato al via dello show Lizzo, prima di attaccare proprio con le parole “I’m crying” il suo pezzo Cuz I Love You. Poi è toccato alla presentatrice della serata tornare sulla tragedia che ha toccato da vicino così tanto la città e gli abitanti di Los Angeles. «Siamo qui per celebrare i migliori artisti dell’anno – ha detto – ma a essere onesti dentro di noi ora sentiamo soltanto una grandissima tristezza perché poche ore fa Los Angeles, l’intera America e tutto il mondo ha perso un eroe. Il mio cuore è letteralmente spezzato mentre sono qui su questo palco, nell’arena che Kobe Bryant ha costruito». E così, durante lo show – sia durante il discorso di Alicia Keys che nel corso dell’esibizione di John Legend, DJ Khaled, Meek Mill, Roddy Rich, Kirk Franklin & YG – sui maxi schermi dello Staples Center sono apparse le immagini di Kobe Bryant con la maglia gialloviola dei suoi Lakers.
