The Italian Fashion guru and Celebrity Host ViVi, (Viola Manuela Ceccarini) brought a touch of Italian style to the music biggest night: The 60tth Annual Academy Awards / Grammys in New York, wearing a black flare sleeve skinny jumpsuit and her signature “cruelty free” white fur coat! The Grammy Awards returns to New York after a decade-and-a-half’s absence. Grammy-week events were held everywhere from the Rainbow Room and the Whitney Museum to Carnegie Hall and Madison Square Garden, where the big show took place on Sunday, Jan. 28,2018 covered by the news broadcaster CBS.
It was the first time since 2003 that the ceremony was held outside Los Angeles, in fact the Grammys had alternated between Los Angeles and New York for much of their history, but after a public spat between then-Academy chief Michael Greene and New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani in 1998, the awards decamped to the Staples Center, returning to New York only in 2003. The ceremony recognizes the best recordings, compositions and artists of the eligibility year, which ran from October 1, 2016 to September 30, 2017. The nominations were announced on November 28, 2017.
Bruno Mars was nominated for six awards and won all six on the night. Luis Fonsi and Daddy Yankee were nominated with the song Despacito, even if they didn’t win they made a huge success for a Latin Song and for Latin Artists with also a great performance. A real amazing show. ViVi reached The Grammy’s After Party in style, aboard a white limo! As you can imagine, it was a lot of fun! Among the guests: model Carol Alt, performance by Nile Rodgers and the Chic, delicious fancy food and music all night!
