Big winner at the Grammy Awards 2013

Adele was last seasons big champion at the Grammy Prizes, and she stated the first prize of the evening at Sunday's wedding as well. The musician, dressed in a red flower create outfit with related footwear, won the Grammy for best pop single performance for "Set Flame to the Rainfall," and sent out "massive love" to the other nominees with her approval conversation.

Taylor Swift started out the display with her music "We Are Never Ever Getting Returning Together" and then Elton David and Ed Sheeran dueted on Sheeran's "The A Group."

Adele's prize was the only one passed out during the first 40 moments of the public part of the wedding. The second prize, for best nation single performance, went to June Underwood for "Blown Away," and wasn't given out until 8:43 Southern time.

Underwood, who thanked her family and "perfect husband" Mike Fisher, was wearing a $31 million diamond necklace when she accepted her award.

The song of the year award went to "We Are Young," composed by Jack Antonoff, Jeff Bhasker, Andrew Dost and Nate Ruess of fun. "If this is in HD, everyone can see our faces, and we are not very young," the band joked.

Kelly Clarkson took home the Grammy for best pop vocal album for "Stronger," and gave an enthusiastic acceptance speech, first explaining why her trip to the stage took so long.

"I got stuck to Miranda Lambert," she announced. "There's a story -- and a song -- for later. After alcohol. Just kidding, children!"

Clarkson went on to thank her fellow nominees, and said to one, "Miguel, I don't know who the hell you are, but we need to sing together."

Grammys


With this year's Grammy Awards just hours away, let's take a look back at the best and worst from last year's red carpet.

With the 53rd annual Grammy Awards less than a day away, glossy industry parties have been underway as some of music's biggest names take over Los Angeles. And there's no better way to kick off the weekend than to sip on some mimosas and enjoy an early brunch with entertainment's biggest entrepreneur alongside fashion's leading luxury brand.

Held at the Soho House in West Hollywood, Roc Nation founder Jay-Z along with Gucci's creative director, Frida Giannini, joined forces Saturday afternoon (February 12) to host this year's pre-Grammy brunch, celebrating the art of music and the special-edition collection of Gucci Grammy watches and jewelry items.

"I was looking for a partner, a very strong one, the day before the Grammys," Giannini explained of her decision to pair up with this year's six-time Grammy nominee. "I think Jay-Z is the boss of this industry. He is a very iconic person, and I think he is the best. So as a designer, I always say I find an incredible inspiration coming from musicians who are in the music industry. Fashion and music, they have always been together because I think we are looking to musicians and musicians are looking to fashion."

Last November, Gucci Timepieces and Jewelry announced a three-year partnership with The Recording Academy inspired by the Grammy Awards. This new partnership is part of a celebration of Gucci's 90 -year history of the brand's commitment to the arts as well as to their most loyal clients — some of whom include artists and producers in the Roc Nation family.

"You can't put a real value on [fashion]," said hitmaker The-Dream, who is already a two-time Grammy winner. "It's so infused in our culture...you know, big ups to Gucci for supporting Roc Nation and Roc-A-Fella and the whole movement, because we used to have to fight for these things. We used to [not be able to] get sponsors, and now it's like almost automatic, you know, [that] it's gonna appear. So I'm pretty impressed."

As were all the other A-list celebrities invited, which included Grammy nominees, performers and presenters such as Rihanna, Kings of Leon and Sean Garrett, as well as actors Ryan Phillippe, Adrien Brody and Ellen Pompeo. As the stars casually arrived to the three-hour event, they were treated to food, beverages and tunes provided by DJs Mark Ronson, Samantha Ronson, Solange and D-Nice. While some dodged the red carpet before entering the venue, others were happy to take a moment to have their pictures taken in their finest attire and speak out about the legacy of fashion and art.

"As a celebrity, as an artist, fashion plays a very, very important part in your imaging and who you are as a person," Ne-Yo explained. "Everyone wants to dress like the hottest celebrity, so for them to line up with Gucci, which is one of those brands which is very versatile, they can be street and they can be dinner-party. They have all of that in their brand. So I think it's very important."
