Kirsters Baish| It isn’t a big surprise that the Grammy Awards was extremely partisan in favor of the left. Americans expect that. Every single award show seems to have some serious Democratic anti-Trump commentary. Hollywood seems to have ignored the fact that most Americans don’t want politics shoved in their faces when it comes to their entertainment. The ratings for this past Sunday’s Grammy Awards are in, and it’s not looking good.
The Daily Wire reported:
Deadline provides the numbers from Sunday’s 60th Grammy Awards, and they’re no doubt getting the Recording Academy’s attention. The ratings aren’t just down a few points from last year; they’re down over 20%.
This year’s ratings: 12.7/21 in metered market ratings, which is a full 20% decline from 2017’s show, despite 2017 facing stiffer competition on TV. The numbers, Deadline says, appear to be “an all-time low for the ceremony.”
So what could’ve possibly gone so very wrong? Was it Americans’ burnout from the endless stream of anti-Trump messages by the liberal elite? Was it #MeToo/#TimesUp overkill/hypocrisy? Was it the worst idea for an awards show ever, by which of course I mean a twice-failed presidential candidate who’s become even more toxic amid the #MeToo movement reading a passage from a debunked book on her political enemy? Was it “President Jay-Z” (who’s currently in a nasty public feud with Trump)?
It’s obvious that the best part of the entire 2018 Grammy Award show was when a group of country singers took the stage and put the rest of Hollywood to shame by showing honor to everyone who was killed or injured in the Las Vegas mass shooting.
BizPac Review reported that what took place at the Grammy’s was one of the most non-political moments in the entire history of the show. Numerous musicians who were playing at the Route 91 Harvest Festival in Las Vegas performed a tribute to the 58 mass shooting victims.
The names of the victims were shown on the screen behind Brothers Osborne, Eric Church, and Marine Morris as they sang their version of Eric Clapton’s “Tears in Heaven.”
T.J. Osborne of the Osborne Brothers stated before their performance, “On Oct. 1, all of country music was reminded in the most tragic way, the connection we share with our fans, and the healing power music will always provide.”
Camila Cabello introduced U2. She felt that it was appropriate to lecture Americans about immigration during her introduction.
Cabello stated, “This country was built by Dreamers, for Dreamers, chasing the American Dream.”
Hollywood Reporter reported that multiple musical artists as well as Hillary Clinton took turns reading sections of Michael Wolff’s best selling book “Fire and Fury: Inside the Trump White House”.
FYI: Wolfe’s book has been highly discredited.
Dana Loesch summed the whole thing up pretty well.
