CNET: Grammys 2019: Start time, livestream, nominees, performances and more. “The Grammys are returning to Los Angeles. Last year’s show took place in New York City, but the 61st annual Grammy Awards will find music’s biggest stars back in the City of Angels this Sunday, Feb. 10.”
The Industry Observer: Aus music database Jaxsta officially launches, teams up with the Grammys . “Jaxsta aims to serve as a one-stop credit roll for the music industry, providing everyone with the ability to learn all the appropriate details in terms of production and performance, making sure credit is given where credit is due. With a team of seasoned industry vets tackling the hard work behind the scenes, you can be sire this data is not only going to be accurate, but also invaluable to industry figures, and casual music fans. Jaxsta has today announced a data partnership with the Recording Academy, the organisation that produces the Grammy Awards. In case you aren’t aware of the magnitude of this partnership, this is the first time in the Grammys’ 59 year history that the offical winner and nominee data has been shared with a third party.” The site has not quite launched yet – it apparently will launch by the end of the year.
Lately I’ve been seeing more of the YouTubers I follow encourage their followers to connect with them on other social media platforms, like Snapchat and Instagram. This seems like more of the same. “More than most other major award shows, The Grammys have engaged with young viewers by teaming up with top personalities in the digital media space. Two years ago, for example, YouTube star Tyler Oakley served as a major presence on the event’s red carpet. The latest creator to get his own piece of music awards content is Jack Baran, who will host a companion show on Snapchat that will lead into the 59th Grammy Awards on February 12th, 2017.”
Instagram is predicting Grammy winners. “Last week, Instagram released its first-ever predictions for the Grammy award winners. The photo-sharing network aggregated the number of mentions each nominated musician received since the nominations were announced in December.”
