Awkward Moments at the 62nd Grammy Awards

Tyler Hayes

It’s Grammy season, but this time around it's not so much a Grammy moment. A legend in basketball history, Kobe Bryant, was pronounced dead in a helicopter crash in California just hours before the award ceremony. Flags were at half-mast at Staples Center, where Bryant long played for the Lakers, as guests began trickling in. Bryant's face, along with the message "In loving memory,” covered digital billboards that wrapped the surrounding buildings at L.A. Live. Fans quietly gathered around a memorial at Staples, where memorabilia included a signed basketball, Bryant jerseys, hundreds of lit candles and red rose petals spelling ‘Kobe’ and ‘Gia,’ in honor of Bryant's 13-year-old daughter Gianna who also died in the helicopter crash.

For the longest, the Grammys has been labeled as being racist. The Grammys, which have long skewed old, white and male, feel only tangentially in touch with contemporary pop music. Big-name stars have been distancing themselves from the event. Its record on diversity, both behind the scenes and at the winners podium, has been dismal. But this year at the 62nd annual awards ceremony, African American artists like Lizzo, Nipsey Hussle, and many more have made it turn around. Talk about calling the kettle black.

Camila Cabello finally walked the red carpet of the 2020 Grammy Awards and the wait was totally worth it. While fans were expecting to see her walk the red carpet with her BF and fellow nominee Shawn Mendes, Camila brought another date to the big award show. Talk about awkward!
