2016 Grammy Discussion - Show Performances etc

Iconic rap trio Run-D.M.C. will be honored with a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award this year, the Recording Academy announced Wednesday (Jan. 13).

The Queens-bred group -- comprised of Darryl "DMC" McDaniels, Joseph "Reverend Run" Simmons and the late Jason "Jam Master Jay" Mizell -- will join a host of legendary recipients including R&B veteran Ruth Brown, Latin legend Celia Cruz, popular funk band Earth, Wind & Fire, jazz icon Herbie Hancock, counterculture rock act Jefferson Airplane and pop sensation Linda Ronstadt.

"I just got a call from the Grammys!! They shocked me!!," tweeted Rev Run. "We're the first rappers to get this award!! Shocked! Grateful!. God is good!!! I’m so honored to be a #GRAMMYs Lifetime Achievement Award recipient this year. Thank you to the Recording Academy!"

Recording Academy President/CEO Neil Portnow praised the 2016 lifetime-achievement recipients in a press release announcing the news. "Each year, The Academy has the distinct privilege of honoring those who have greatly contributed to our industry and cultural heritage, and this year we have a gifted and brilliant group of honorees. Their exceptional accomplishments, contributions, and artistry will continue to influence and inspire generations to come."

Run-D.M.C. -- who will be celebrated in a special ceremony alongside other recipients this spring -- was the first rap act to land a gold album with their self-titled 1984 debut and to be nominated for a Grammy. Past honorees include The Beatles, George Harrison, The Bee Gees and Buddy Guy.

Nick Ashford was someone I greatly admired, had the honor of knowing, and was the real-life inspiration for Cowboy Curtis' hair. RIP Nick. - Pee Wee Herman

I wonder will Grace Slick show up since she thinks rock n roll is for young people. razz

For 65 years straight, the #1 genre in music, selling wise, was rock n' roll worldwide. Last year (2017) in June, it got de-crowned by hip hop. Hip hop is the #1 genre. It's hip hop - rock - country - pop or pop - country. ~ Pras

So who else will get the mention of passing since last year's telecast besides, Natalie Cole, Glenn Frey, David Howie, Blowfly (perhaps)?

CBS O&O’s and affiliates on Mountain and Pacific time will have the option of airing the Grammy Awards live on Monday, February 15, rather than on a delayed basis. The move follows a similar strategy for The Oscars, Emmys and Golden Globes, so viewers can keep pace with social chatter. Participating stations in the Pacific time zone will rerun the awards show after the live broadcast.

I don't know what month they start at, but there's B.B. King, Cynthia Robinson from Family Stone, Chris Squire from Yes, Allen Toussaint, Phil Taylor & Lemmy from Motorhead, Mel Waiters, Otis Clay, Scott Weiland, and songwriter Michael Masser. They might mention William Guest from The Pips since they have won Grammys and session drummer "Fast" Eddie Hoh who played on some Monkees songs.

MAVIS STAPLES is nominated for "See That My Grave Is Kept Clean" from her latest EP in some obscure category. At 76, it would be great if she could perform it live on television and win one more time. Her documentary ("Mavis!") will finally be on HBO mid-February, along with the release of another new, full album ("Living On a High Note").

There's also Nicholas Caldwell from The Whispers.

The 58th Annual Grammy Awards take place on February 15. The previously-reported list of performers set to appear on the telecast includes Kendrick Lamar, the Weeknd, Adele, Ellie Goulding, and Lionel Richie, among other names. Now, the Academy has announced that Lady Gaga will honor David Bowie with an "experiential tribute" performed under the musical direction of Chic's Nile Rodgers.

A press release says: "Affording audiences a chance to experience Bowie's music once again, the tribute will be a multisensory testament to the icon's incredible artistry and a reflection of his limitless creativity."

According to a press release, Gaga—whose song "'Til It Happens to You" is up for Best Song Written for Visual Media this year—had already been confirmed to perform at the Grammys. The nature of her performance shifted in the wake of Bowie's death.

"We immediately spoke and agreed that she should be the one to honor David," Grammys executive producer Ken Ehrlich said in a press release. "She's perfect for it. So I reached out to Nile and, before long, we were on our way to creating what we believe will not only make a great GRAMMY Moment, but one befitting of David."

Mavis performing would be awesome.

There should be but with all who have died since this year began, will it happen? I'd love to see an EW&F tribute and with it being Black History Month, it would be perfect because of the doors the group opened for black artists but Maurice is just one of many artists to have passed away. If anything, he and everyone else will share a tribute, I think.

Lionel Richie will be saluted at the 58th annual Grammy Awards, with Luke Bryan, John Legend, Demi Lovato and Meghan Trainor performing some of the artist’s most memorable songs. This lineup though

Not too keen on those performers though I guess they'll be more fitting singing most of Lionel's solo songs than those who sang Stevie's last year.
