Los Angeles, the 31st of January 2010 [Pattaya Daily News]: Nominated for an impressive 8 awards, Beyonce notably won the Song Of The Year for ‘Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It).’ Also taking out the Best R&B Contemporary Album for ‘I Am… Sasha Fierce.’

 

Although Beyonce’s haul was remarkable, young country diva Taylor Swift impressed all and showed her youthful exuberance whilst winning the Album Of The Year for the best-selling ‘Fearless,’ only her second album. ‘Fearless’ was the number one selling album of 2009 from any genre and was rightly awarded top honours.

After beating Beyonce, The Dave Matthews Band, Lady Gaga and the Black Eyed Peas to the top award, she jumped around on stage before explaining: “Oh wow — thank you so much! I just hope that you know how much this means to me…. that we get to take this back to Nashville. Oh my God, our families are freaking out in their living rooms. My dad and my little brother are losing their minds in the living room right now.”

The 52nd Grammy Awards also featured a rousing rendition of ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water,’ sung by Mary J. Blige and Andrea Bocelli in support of the Haiti earthquake relief effort. The song was chosen for its relevance to the ongoing crisis and the fact that the night marked the 40th anniversary of its Grammy awards successes. Many of the nights performers and audience wore Red Cross buttons in a further show of support for the Haiti relief effort.

Another feature at this years’ awards was a special 3D tribute to the legendary pop icon Michael Jackson including a video clip of the ‘Earth Song’ with popstars Usher, Carrie Underwood, Celine Dion, Jennifer Hudson and Smokey Robinson singing along.

   

Jackson was also presented with the Lifetime Achievement Award (posthumously) which was accepted in a rare appearance by Michael’s two children Prince and Paris. “Through all his songs his message was simple, love. We will continue to spread his message and help the world,” Prince said.
