Better keep your phone charged 24/7, ’cause we’re in the middle of awards season and those snarky tweets aren’t gonna Twitter themselves. This past Sunday was the Golden Globes, a boozy precursor to the Oscars, which goes down on February 22nd. In-between, on February 8th, is the least fun of the early-year trophy triumvirate: the Grammys. The nominees have already been announced, and now so have the first round of performers.
Or, to use actual words, Madonna, AC/DC, Ed Sheeran, Ariana Grande, and Eric Church. There’s something for everyone — dusty pop stars, rockers torn apart by tragedy, Taylor Swift’s red-headed teddy bears, miniature serial killers, and Eric Church — assuming everyone means “people who don’t like rap or punk.”
