David Bowie Wins Five Grammys, Technical Problems Mar Metallica's Performance

Sunday night's 59th Annual Grammy Awards was a great night for David Bowie, even though he sadly wasn't around to appreciate it. The late rock icon won five Grammys overall, sweeping every category in which he was nominated, including Best Alternative Album and Best Rock Song for Blackstar and its title track.   They were the first Grammys that Bowie had ever won for his music: his only previous award, other than a Lifetime Achievement Grammy, was for Best Short Form Video, for 1985's Jazzin' for Blue Jean. Rock duo Twenty One Pilots ended up winning in the category of Best…

Avenged Sevenfold's M. Shadows feels performing "The Stage" in full 'Could be pretty darn cool'

Avenged Sevenfold kicked off a European tour over the weekend in support of their new album, The Stage. With its themes of artificial intelligence and strong visual style, it seems like The Stage would be a fitting album to perform live in full -- an idea that has crossed the mind of frontman M. Shadows. "I always thought so when we first wrote it, but then I kinda got taken off the idea," Shadows tells ABC Radio. "I know a lot of bands have done it, and it kinda bums out some fans, but it's definitely up in the air.…

Grammys 2017 -- the performances

As usual, Sunday night's Grammy Awards were less about the awards, and more about the performances, as unexpected artists duetted with one another, and artists who perhaps weren't household names going into the show proved why they were nominated in the first place. Here's rundown of who sang what: Adele opened the show with a simple, stark performance of "Hello" -- she sang on a darkened stage surrounded by a circle of light. The Weeknd, introduced by Michael Jackson's daughter, Paris, teamed with Daft Punk, in all their robot glory, for "I Feel It Coming." Carrie Underwood and Keith Urban…
