Grammy Awards to Include Dance Music Segment

Posted by & filed under SFW, The Daily Dose (Entertainment News).


Electronica and dance music have taken over mainstream music, and the Grammy Awards have responded by adding a segment that showcases the genre. Lil Wayne, Chris Brown, David Guetta, the Foo Fighters and Deadmau5 will perform in a tent outside the Staples Center for 1,000 fans.

“My feeling about dance is it’s such an immersive experience for the participant, that to put it on stage, where the audience is not a part of it… I don’t know, honestly, until we came up with the idea of doing it this way, I don’t know if it ever would have worked,” said Ken Ehrlich, the show’s producer.

Erlich adds that the dance music segment will be the “most ambitious number that we’ve ever done outside the Staples Center.” The Grammy Awards airs this Sunday at 8/7c on CBS.
