If you made it through the entire airing of the 57th Annual Grammy Awards, you may have noticed the lack of awards actually handed out on live TV.
Before the Grammys actually begin, categories that don’t make the broadcast are presented at what is referred to as “The Grammy Awards Premiere Ceremony.” Believe or not, 74 of the 83 Grammy Awards were handed out at that time, and here are all of the winners in the rock genre:
Best Rock Performance
Jack White - "Lazaretto"
Best Rock Song
Paramore - "Ain't It Fun"
Hayley Williams & Taylor York, songwriters
Best Alternative Rock Album
St. Vincent - St. Vincent
Best Metal Performance
Tenacious D - "The Last In Line"
For those counting at home that means only five of the 83 Grammy Awards handed out this year, including Best Rock Album, were dedicated specifically to rock music. Glad the Grammy people managed to fit one category on the telecast!
