Grammy Awards 2009

I vincitori

Robert Plant e Alison Krauss hanno vinto cinque Grammy nella cerimonia per la consegna dei Grammy Awards 2009, aggiudicandosi il numero più alto di premi dell’anno; il Grammy per la miglior canzone dell’anno è andato ai Coldplay per Viva la Vida.

L’attrice premio Oscar Jennifer Hudson, molto commossa, ha vinto nella categoria Miglior album r’n’b e ha ringraziato la madre, il fratello e il nipote dicendo: “vorrei ringraziare la mia famiglia in Paradiso per quanto successo oggi”.

Adele, vincitrice nella categoria Miglior nuovo artista, ha dichiarato con il premio in mano “Duffy, ti adoro, credo che tu sia incredibile” per smentire la forte rivalità creata intorno alle due artiste. Proprio Duffy ha portato a casa il Grammy per Miglior Album Vocale Pop.

I Coldplay, che lo scorso anno avevano vinto quattro Grammy, quest’anno tornano a casa con tre premi. Anche loro commossi e fieri del loro lavoro hanno ringraziato la platea di artisti che avevano davanti.

Il favorito Lil’ Wayne, candidato con otto nomination, si è portato a casa quattro Grammy: Album rap dell’anno, Rap solo performance, Miglior canzone rap e Rap performance by a duo or group.
