Some of the biggest names in music came out last night (Sunday, Jan31) for the 52nd annual Grammy Awards. The ladies ruled the evening — with Beyonce and Taylor Swift both taking home top honors!

Beyonce led the pack with 10 nods & ended up making history for the most wins by a female artist in a single Grammy night by scoring six trophies (incl. song of the year for “Single Ladies”). Swift entered with eight nominations and left with four, including one of the event’s most prestigious awards — album of the year! Not sure I understand that win, but hey…

Other big winners: Kings of Leon scored record of the year for “Use Somebody.” The Black Eyed Peas won three awards, including best pop vocal album for The E.N.D., and Jay-Z took home three –one for best rap solo performance and two awards for “Run This Town” with Rihanna and Kanye West (who was a no show).

MY TOP 3 MOMENTS:

1) Lady Gaga & Elton John’s duet:

2) Pink should be part of Cirque du Soleil:

3) Green Day scored big singing with the cast of their Broadway version of American Idiot (and with a Grammy for Best Rock Album):

Finally, special mention goes to the duet of Mary J Blige and Andrea Bocelli — a song that can be downloaded for Haiti relief and just poured chills down my spine:

There you go! Grammy Awards 2010 in a nut shell!

I’ve only been away from Montreal 3 weeks, so I still tend to check what’s up in that part of the world! Last night, I found this video & thought you could definitely appreciate!!!

This LipDub was created with the help of 172 communication students during Frosh week of one of Montreal’s French universities (UQAM). It’s pretty impressive that it was done in 1 take!! I wonder if the camera man had a boom box with the song playing, cause these guys are awesome with the timing! Take a look:

I challenge you Winnipeg, can you do better?!

WOW!!

Wow!!! It all I can say! I had never been to this sort of multi-artists outdoor concert at Parc Jean Drapeau and I was blown away by what V-Fest had to offer!!! First off, the site is incredible and has so much to offer! The VIP sections are quite sweet and the atmosphere was electrifying!!

I got there in time to see the New Cities, Hedley and Simple Plan — all three the perfect set up for the closing event of day 1: Black Eyed Peas!! WOW!!!! Fergie and the boys blew me away–they are amazing live! The crowd went nuts as they sang all their major hits and some new singles off their new album. Check out some of the action:

Can’t wait for today — Divine Brown, Karl Wolf, David Usher, Akon, NKOTB!!!! Woohooo!!

What a feeling it must be as an artist to have thousands of people sing along to your songs!

Check out the Virgin Festival Blog (lower right hand corner of our website, under the banner “Virgin Radio Music”) for a video of the crowd fully singing with the Black Eyed Peas last night at V-Fest — it was nuts!

What a better way to get that feeling, than to make it happen with a sing-along!!! Check out Pink rocking it out with her fans on “So What” — pretty cool!!!

I could not resist to post this High School yearbook picture of Kanye West. I was surprised to find out he graduated the same year I did (1995) and check out how innocent he looked back then!!! Not nearly as cool as now, but you had to guess that he’d be hot later in life!!

I also found this photo. Guess who she is… she graduated in 1993 from Glen Wilson Hish School in Hacienda Heights, California.

It’s Stacey Ferguson!!!! Yep– THAT’S FERGIE!!!!!! What a change!

Don’t miss your chance to see Fergie and the Black Eyed Peas as they close off day 1 of Virgin Festival Montreal tonight!!! See you there!
