#VGRAMMYs: Follow along as we live-tweet the 59th-annual GRAMMY Awards


The 59th-annual GRAMMY Awards are going down tonight (February 12) live from Los Angeles, and a few Vanyaland editors and writers have decided to hang out together on Twitter and recap the proceedings as they happen. Follow along below as we riff on the results, performances, and everything else from the Staples Center in Los Angeles, or join the discussion with the hashtag #VGrammys (keep it civil, please). For a quick primer on tonight’s festivities, Vanyaland’s Cory Lamz predicts 10 of the top Grammy categories, and gives us some insight on just what the Recording Academy is thinking. Tonight’s gala features performances by Metallica and Lady Gaga, Adele, Chance the Rapper, The Weeknd and Daft Punk, and others, and will include tributes to late musical icons Prince and George Michael. In terms of potential gramophone hardware, Beyoncé holds court with nine total nominations, while Rihanna, Drake, and Kanye each have eight. The show starts at 8 p.m. eastern time and is broadcast on CBS.
