2014 Grammys | Recap, Videos And Winners List

French duo Daft
were the big winners at last night’s Grammys Awards celebration in Los Angeles.
The Robots scored victories in five categories including the prestigious Album Of The Year
honors for Random Access Memories and Record Of The Year for “Get Lucky.” The
also performed a medley with Stevie Wonder, Pharell and Nile Rodgers that combined “Get
Lucky,” “I Wish” and “Freak Out.”

New Zealand’s Lorde took home Song Of The Year and Best Pop Performance honors, while
Macklemore and Ryan Lewis were awards the Best New Artist trophy and two others. We were
happy to see our friends Snarky Puppy score the Best R&B Performance award for
featuring Lalah Hathaway. Led Zeppelin, who surprisingly had never won a Grammy before,
finally took home a Best Rock Album trophy for Celebration Day. In a bit of a
surprise, Dave Grohl, Paul McCartney, Pat Smear and Krist Novoselic’s “Cut Me Some Slack”
won the Best Rock Song trophy.

Performance wise, we enjoyed the Daft Punk / Stevie Wonder medley, but had higher hopes
for the long-awaited Macca/Ringo pairing. The two performed McCartney’s recent single
“Queenie Eye” instead of a Beatles classic. Metallica offered an interesting version of
“One” featuring Chinese pianist Lang Lang. For the finale, Grohl and Lindsey Buckingham
teamed with Nine Inch Nails and Queens Of The Stone Age, though the performance was cut
short leading Trent Reznor to issue a hearty “fuck you” to event organizers:
