Grammys announce Prince, George Michael tribute

Makes Statement0 Comments

The Recording Academy announces that the 59th annual Grammy Awards will pay homage to Prince and George Michael, who both died in 2016.

While the primary focus of the Grammy Awards is to celebrate and honor the year’s best in music, we consider it our responsibility to tell music’s broader story by honoring its legends lost—that’s what we strive to achieve with our annual tributes. While it’s nearly impossible to convey the full depth of an artist’s cultural impact in a single performance, it’s that very challenge that has led us to some of our most memorable Grammy moments.
