GRAMMY Awards Premiere Ceremony®
62nd Annual GRAMMY Awards
The first Grammy Awards ceremony was held on May 4th, 1959, to honor and respect the musical accomplishments by performers for the year 1958.
A Grammy Award (stylized as GRAMMY, originally called Gramophone Award), or Grammy, is an award presented by The Recording Academy to recognize achievements in the music industry. The trophy depicts a gilded gramophone. The annual presentation ceremony features performances by prominent artists, and the presentation of those awards that have a more popular interest. The
Grammys are the second of the Big Three major music awards held annually (between the American Music Awards in the Fall, and the Billboard Music Awards in the Summer).
