Los Angeles, Calif. – The stars came out to shine at Music’s Biggest Night® during the 66th Grammy Awards held at the Crypto Arena in downtown Los Angeles. The heavy rain poured down outside even as Joni Mitchell’s rendition of her iconic song Both Sides Now from her 1969 album Clouds, drew tears of emotion from the audience and television viewers alike.

“Music has always been one of humanities greatest connectors,” said Harvey Mason jr., CEO, the Recording Academy. “Every song we heard tonight moved someone… Now is the time for Humanity to play together to come together, with empathy and Love,” Mason said.

Grammys host, Trevor Noah, kept the mood upbeat throughout the evening with his quick wit and humor as well as his heartfelt observations. “These people write the soundtracks of our lives,” Noah said.

Celine Dion presented the final award of the evening. “When I say that I’m happy to be here, I really mean it from my heart,” Dion said. “Those who have been blessed enough to be here at the Grammys must never forget the joy that music brings to people all around the world.” She then presented Taylor Swift with her fourth Album of the Year Award, the first artist to surpass Frank Sinatra, Paul Simon and Stevie Wonder who held the most in the category with three Best Albums wins each, prior to this evening’s ceremonies.

Accepting her fourth win for Album of the Year for her Midnights album, Taylor Swift told the audience and viewers around the world, “The music is the work… All I want to do is keep doing this, I love it so much… it makes me so happy,” Swift said, thanking her team including Lana Del Ray, calling her a legacy artist. Earlier, Swift announced her upcoming album,The Tortured Poets Department, to be released April 19, while accepting her 13th Grammy for her Best Pop Album.

The Piano Man himself, Billy Joel, who earlier performed his new song, Turn the Lights Back On, closed out the 2024 Grammys with a triumphant rendition of his 1980s classic, You May Be Right. Tonight’s Grammys hit all the right notes and will go down in Music History as a night to remember!

The Hollywood Bowl presents A Tribute to Peggy Lee and Frank Sinatra, July 27, 2022.

Two iconic singers are celebrated by an all-star lineup, with special guests Billie Eilish, Debbie Harry, Dianne Reeves, Brian Stokes Mitchell, Seth MacFarlane, Bettye LaVette, and Gretchen Parlato – Wed / July 27, 2022 – 8:00PM

Hollywood, Calif. – Peggy Lee and Frank Sinatra, two iconic singers will be celebrated by an all-star lineup, with special guests Billie Eilish, Debbie Harry, Dianne Reeves, Brian Stokes Mitchell, Seth MacFarlane, Bettye LaVette, and Gretchen Parlato. Showtime is Wed / July 27, 2022 – 8:00PM at the Hollywood Bowl.

One of the most popular jazz singers of the big band era, with a smoky subtlety that could stop the brashest band in its tracks, Peggy Lee–whose centennial was marked in 2020–sang her way to 13 Grammy nominations and two awards, including one for Lifetime Achievement, with her trademark voice. Not only did she bring a famously velvety tone to her work with Benny Goodman, scoring hits with “Somebody Else is Taking My Place” and “Why Don’t You Do Right?,” as well as her own “Fever” and “Is That All There Is?” She was also an accomplished writer, with songs like “Mañana” and “I Don’t Know Enough About You” earning her induction into the Songwriters Hall of Fame.

Frank Sinatra made his first appearance at the Bowl in 1943, and he made a bit of an impact. The Los Angeles Times reported, “From the moon-bathed tiers of venerable Hollywood Bowl, last night came the inconceivable—hysterical screams, pleading, sighs, whistles, endearments, gasps, agonized cries.” Over the ensuing five decades, Sinatra would become an American legend, his voice—alternately swaggering and crooning—encapsulating romance, ambition, happiness, pride, and so much more.

On this very special night at the Hollywood Bowl, a pair of close friends and Capitol Records labelmates—who just happened to be two of the 20th century’s most important and influential singers­—are feted by an all-star group of artists. Don’t miss it.

This performance is generously supported by Tylie Jones.
