Music’s Biggest Night is just around the corner!
Singer Andra Day announced the nominees for the 2018 Grammys live on CBS This Morning Tuesday.
Jay-Z leads the nominations with eight, followed by Kendrick LaMar with seven and Bruno Mars with six. “I’m inspired by this year’s nominees and the incredible talent each possesses,” Recording Academy President and CEO Neil Portnow said. “Their recordings are a true testament to how creatively alive and meaningful our music industry has become. Each nominee uses their craft to inspire, uplift, and tell stories of our world through their artistry. They provide a vibrant soundtrack that represents the highest level of excellence and continues to impact and reflect our culture.”
James Corden will host the show for the second year in a row—but for the 60th annual show, the party is moving from the Staples Center in L.A. to Madison Square Garden in New York City. It’s been 15 years since the venue last hosted to the annual event. CBS will broadcast the 60th Annual Grammy Awards live on both coasts Sunday, Jan. 28, 2018, at 7:30 p.m. ET/4:30 p.m. PT.
Shaun White Apologizes for Dragging American Flag, Promises Infidel Radio it ‘Won’t Happen Again’
We think you are the shit…just don’t be a dumb ass again!
Snowboarder Shaun White apologized Wednesday for dragging a U.S. flag on the snow after his dramatic gold medal victory in the men’s halfpipe, but said he did not know he had let the flag touch the ground.
“I remember being handed the flag but I was trying to put my gloves on and hold the flag and get board,” he told reporters afterward. “Honestly, if there was anything, I definitely didn’t mean any disrespect.”
“The flag that’s flying on my house right now is way up there. So sorry for that,” White continued. “But I’m definitely proud — very proud — to be a part of Team USA and being an American and to be representing for everyone back home.”
White reclaimed his Olympic halfpipe title, landing back-to-back 1440s to knock Japan’s Ayumu Hirano out of the top spot, and at the same time won the United States’ 100th all-time gold medal at the Winter Olympics.
But White, who also won his third gold medal, immediately got criticism on Twitter for allowing the flag touch the ground several times while he was overcome with emotion following his career-capping performance.
