And the Grammy goes to…

By Michelle Joline

This past year in music has brought newcomers like Justin Bieber and Mumford & Sons into the limelight and onto everyone’s MP3 players. With the Grammys approaching this Sunday, the question at hand is whether or not their new success will win them the ultimate recognition. The 53rd annual Grammy Awards will air on CBS from 8-11:30 p.m.

Last year, everyone seemed to talk about Lady Gaga, but this year it was Eminem who stole the stage and received 10 nominations from his unexpectedly popular comeback album “Recovery.” While Lady Gaga has still maintained her popularity from her “Little Monsters” with six nominations, newcomers like Florence and the Machine might end up winning big. Their new indie/rock sound, featured on “Glee,” has arguably changed the style of popular contemporary music. Many of these artists will be performing during the Grammys, making for an entertaining night in music. Artists such as Rihanna and Bieber are on the list of performers for the festivities.
