Grammy Awards 2016...And the winners are..

I got up at 03:00 South African time to watch the much anticipated Grammy Awards 2016. It was an amazing event! I remember when I had the opportunity to attend the event in 2006...it was a dream come true! I remember the frenetic energy and the stars coming backstage to talk to the media: Kelly Clarkson, Madonna, Gorillaz, U2, and many more. And I had the opportunity to interview most of these stars.
