We were all looking forward to seeing the results and as expected, Beyonce, Taylor Swift, Black Eyed Peas, Lady Gaga were among the famous performers that attained the major Grammy awards. The Grammy producers used the intense competition for the Album of the Year award between Beyonce and Taylor Swift to attract viewers to stay tuned through the 3.5 hour telecast. In the end, as expected, the two competitors went home with a few awards. Taylor Swift won the Album of The Year and the Best Country Album for “Fearless”, the Best Female Country Vocal Performance and the Best Country Song for the song “White Horse”. Going home with 4 well-earned awards, Swift said on her acceptance speech “ I just hope that you know how much this means to me. Our families are freaking out in their living rooms.” Beyonce carried home 6 Grammys including Song of the Year, Best Female R&B Vocal Perfomance, Best R&B Song for the song “Single Ladies”, Best Female Pop Vocal Performance for the song “Halo”, Best Traditional R&B Vocal Performance for the song “At Last” and the Best Contemporary R&B Album for the Album “I am… Sasha Fierce”.

Perhaps the most memorable moments in the Grammy Awards was when Michael Jackson’s two eldest children, Paris and Prince Michael went on stage to accept their father’s lifetime achievement award. 12-year-old Prince Michael said upon their acceptance speech said that his father’s songs were all simply about love and that they “will continue to spread his message and help the world.” He then thanked God for watching over them for the past seven months in which their father was gone.
