The Grammys derived from and are in the shape of the Gramophone (the invention by Emile Berliner), although Thomas Edison did win a Grammy award last year. The initial award ceremony occurred in 1959 when I was a freshman in college (the Song of the Year was Domenico Modugno’s Nel Blue Dipinto di Blu) and first televised in 1971 as I was close to finishing my PhD.
Jennifer Hudson looked amazing, considering how, well, chubby, she was when she came in as the #7 American Idol seven years ago. Has it been that long? She is now the spokeslady for Weight Watchers and has lost 80 pounds.
