59th Annual GRAMMY Awards Winners and Losers for 2017

Well you know it’s that time of the year again.  Grammy Awards are one of the most prestigious and important events in the music industry, where the top musicians and artists steal away the deserving awards for their dedication and hard work. In the terms of this important event, there are definite winners and losers. In the recent Grammy Awards 2017, there was some serious competition, some chatter, and some distraction. While Adele was the clear winner of the night, we have listed all the other winners and losers of this year’s Grammys. Amongst several nominations, only a few managed to bag some awards. The event took place on Feb 12 in Los Angeles.

Winners of Grammys 2017:-

Adele:
As I mentioned earlier, Adele was the clear winner of the night. Bagging three awards along with a lot of appraising, Adele shone through the night. She won the awards for three categories, which were Record of the Year, Song of the Year and Album of the Year for ‘Hello’ and the album ’25’. Apart from the awards, she also won many hearts. One of the brightest moments of the night was when Adele announced that she could not accept the award for the Album of the Year, and said that Beyonce truly deserved it for her striking album ‘Lemonade’.

Another captured moment was when Adele began the night by her popular piece ‘Hello’. The audience roared and applauded and it seemed the award for truly meant for her. Although she wanted to begin again for sounding perfect, the moment showed only her dedication and humility to give out the best performance. This did not stop her from outshining and she did shine during the night.

Beyonce:
The queen of hearts, Beyonce was another deserving winner of the Grammy Awards 2017. Having won a number of awards in the past, she stood no chance of not bagging any awards this year too. Giving repetitive hits every year through her dedication and hard work, she truly deserved the awards. She scored the Best Urban Contemporary Album for “Lemonade” and the Best Music Video for “Formation”. Adele herself is a big fan of the album “Lemonade” and truly dedicated her award to Beyonce.

Beyonce’s performance in the commencement of the event had people going crazy over her. Her golden attire and halo simply added to her charm. Representing fertility and femininity with sheer elegance and beauty, she left her mark on the stage along with hologram interactive of her daughter and mother.

Chance the Rapper:
Another winner of the night, Chance the Rapper had all in his bag that night. He grabbed the Best New Artist for his mixtape “Coloring Book” and the Best Rap Album. Being humble and down to earth, Chance the Rapper continuously thanked god throughout the event and when he won the awards. He even dedicated his awards to all the indie artists who have been struggling for a while now. He performed when the show almost ended, signing “How Great” with Kirk Franklin. He was barely audible due to some technical mic issues but his performance and attitude were praiseworthy.

David Bowie:
The artist who had won only one Grammy Award years back in 1985 for the Best Video for “Jazzin’ for Blue Jean” and a Lifetime Achievement Award ten years ago, took home four of the prestigious Grammys for Best Engineered Album, Best Rock Performance, Best Alternative Album and Best Recording Package, all for “Blackstar”.

Losers of Grammys 2017:-

James Corden:
The untimed jokes and gigs of James Corden were a “not really needed” part of the show where we already had dozens of talented artists performing that night. Slipping off a flight of stairs and wearing a sock on just one leg were silly and unnecessary parts of the show. Not only did it take extra time of the total dedicated hours of the show, the parts with James Corden didn’t really hit off. To be frank, the addition of James Corden was only to take off the charm of the event.

Joy Villa:
Joy Villa or popularly known as Princess Joy Villa showed up on the red carpet with a poor fashion sense and an unattractive piece. Having mentioned on her Instagram profile as a “Grammy Considered Artist”, she was not nominated for a single Award. She seemed to be a clear loser of the night.

The Botox App, Dermdash iPhone App

It’s the 21st century and apparently the increase in the use of cosmetics is considerably high. Everyone wants to look young and have a flawless skin despite aging and sun exposure. There are numerous ways of looking young of course, there are many dermatologists out there performing cosmetic procedures and restoring that youthful appearance in everyone. The problem is the hustle of trying to find the right doctor to perform such procedures, having to actually bare with traffic because well its LA and no one actually loves traffic, the problem of waiting for your call to be picked, booking appointments which is not appealing at all. Fortunately, there is a solution to that: an app called dermdash is here to do all the hustling for you!

dermdash-app

Dermdash is an easy to use app, very convenient and here is to why. The app allows the user to have all the information one needs about the approved and highly qualified doctors. All one has to do is select the kind of treatment one wants, whether chemical, botox or laser treatment and choose the product they’d want used provided by the listed doctors and then compare the prices like laser hair removal to botox cost and make a decision on what they’d want used. The app provides the user with several options to choose from and saves you from the hustle of actually having to beat traffic and driving all over LA trying to find a suitable facility.

Seeing is believing and I know that for some of us believing that an app can actually get you a genuine doctor is quite hard right! Way ahead of you though, quite a number of people have actually had treatments by doctors they got through the app. The users normally have a chance of rating the doctors who have treated them. The rating is often five star and these ratings will allow a new user to select an appropriate doctor and actually convince a new user that this app is legit and that the doctors listed have all been pre-approved.

Since our days are normally busy with errands to run and duties to attend to, we usually lack time to perform some necessary procedures like laser treatment. Because of this we do not actually get the time to look for a doctor to perform these procedures causing some decide to forego. Well dermdash is here and it provides you with doctor’s addresses so you actually do not have to forego them. Aside from the ratings and also the list of doctors provided by the app, the location of each doctor’s office is often given and even the address. It really saves one the time of having to drive around the city aimlessly trying to find a doctor. 

It is no doubt that cosmetic procedures are quite expensive. Despite the expense though everyone wants to show off during summer, we all have those sexy bikinis waiting to be worn during summer and most people actually strain to pay for these treatments. Well dermdash knows your struggles and it provides users with savings, it ensures that the user does not struggle with paying for the treatment. Dermdash App is actually a free app and the only charges are for the purchases a user makes. The purchases are however greatly discounted and by actually simply signing up each user are given a $20 discount for their first purchase and afterwards one is given a 15% discount which is applied on your next purchase. If one is vigorous enough and actually notifies more people of the app, the chances of increased savings with dermdash actually go up.

Dermdash is actually so convenient as you have seen, gone are the days of hustling for a doctor for days on end trying to book an appointment. Now you can actually communicate with a bunch of doctors anywhere and anytime, hustle free and appointments are so easy to make. Unfortunately the app is only available for people who reside in Los Angeles but other cities will definitely have a chance to use the app too sooner than you can tell. Let us all take advantage of these app good people and actually enjoy the savings. So head on to the app store now and download the dermdash app and save yourself the hustle!

David Letterman is clearly enjoying his retirement.

The former Late Show host was photographed going for a run on the Caribbean island of St. Barts this week. He hasn’t shaved his beard since he went off the air last May, but he shaved his head almost completely bald. He looks like an entirely different person. The only way to tell it’s him is the Ball State alumnus’ t-shirt.

Check him out:

Sarah Clarke

There’s a new tough-talking FBI Special Agent heading to NCIS.

24 alum Sarah Clarke has been tapped to play Tess Monroe, a “quick-witted, tough and shrewd” Special Agent who recently transferred to D.C. from New York City, TVGuide.com has learned.

According to a character description, Tess is “a multiple divorcée who’s as sexy as she is strong. Tess has no kids so she views her fellow agents as family. Beneath a no-nonsense shell, Tess has a big heart. She believes in honor and justice and doing what’s right. And she’ll fight to protect those values, and her team, with fierce determination and a tinge of sarcasm along the way.”

NCIS Mega Buzz: Will Ziva return for Tony’s big send-off?

Best known for playing duplicitous Nina Myers on 24, Clarke has also appeared on Bosch, The Tomorrow People, Covert Affairs, Men of a Certain Age, and in the Twilight franchise.

“We feel so fortunate to have Sarah Clarke joining us to play Tess,” NCIS showrunner Gary Glasberg said in a statement. “I’ve been a fan of hers going back to 24 and more recently Bosch. She’s a gifted actress, a total pro, and we can’t wait to introduce her to our NCIS family and have some fun.”

For now, Clarke is booked as a guest star and Tess will appear on the final two episodes of NCIS‘ current season, but it’s possible that she could become a series regular. Will she be able to fill the void left by Tony DiNozzo?

NCIS airs Tuesdays at 8/7c on CBS.
