This coming Sunday, January 26, the biggest stars in the music biz and a cavalcade of industry heads will get all dressed up and head to L.A.'s Staples Center for the Grammy Awards, a.k.a. "Music’s Biggest Night." Established in 1958, and originally named for the gramophone - a recording and playback device invented by Thomas Edison in the 19th century - the ceremony is still going strong in the era of Soundcloud and Spotify. More than 28 million viewers tuned in to watch last year's 55th Grammy Awards and there were over 15 million social media interactions about the Grammys that night alone - an increase of over 500 percent increase from the 2011 awards (but not as many as 2012, the year Whitney Houston died).
Yet while lots of people watch the Grammys, nobody seems to agree with them.
