Because staying up until 5am to find out who has won in categories as gripping as “Best Rap/Sung Performance” and “Best Country Group/Duo Performance” isn’t for everyone, the chances are you might well have missed some of the key moments from this year’s action-packed Grammys.
Grammys 2020: Everything You Might Have Missed During This Years Awards Show
Fortunately, powered by nothing but Lucozade and our combined love of Billie Eilish and Lizzo, we managed to stay up for the whole thing, so we have got you covered.
From show-stopping performances to some of the more low-key moments that might have gone over some viewers’ heads these are our highlights from the 2020 Grammys...1. We have to start with the red carpet, because some celebs really went all out this year Ariana Grande giving us full Disney princess alongside Lil Nas X at peak Lil Nas X is exactly the effort we want from celebrities at all awards shows moving forward, please.2. Special mention has to be given to Billy Porter, thoughYESSSSSS BILLY 🙌🏾 #Grammyspic.twitter.com/heagugaE2S— MEFeater Magazine (@mefeater) January 27, 2020He’s known for going over the top with his red carpet fashion, but we’ve never seen him sporting a motorised accessory before. 3. Although the less said about these red carpet choices, the better4. Of course, the tragic news which broke just hours before the Grammys hung over the event "To be honest with you, we're all feeling crazy sadness right now because earlier today Los Angeles, America and the whole wide world lost a hero. And we're literally standing here heartbroken in the house that Kobe Bryant built." - Alicia Keys #GRAMMYshttps://t.co/vaZMxb3cC7pic.twitter.com/jgHTRhyAwT— LAT Entertainment (@latimesent) January 27, 2020"We love you Kobe." @aliciakeys and Boyz II Men sing in tribute to Kobe Bryant and his family at the opening of the #Grammyshttps://t.co/kk0nIau0eepic.twitter.com/v3KpXSkvyW— The Hollywood Reporter (@THR) January 27, 2020There had been a lot of talk on social media about whether the event would even go ahead in light of Kobe Bryant’s sudden death at the age of 41, but presenter Alicia Keys opened the show with a tribute to the basketball legend.
After asking for a moment of silence, she was then joined on stage by Boyz II Men, for an impromptu rendition of It’s So Hard To Say Goodbye.5. There were many more tributes to Kobe Bryant over the course of the eveningLizzo’s acceptance speech for Best Pop Solo Performance pic.twitter.com/nY3cUob7cC— Atlanta Black Star (@ATLBlackStar) January 27, 2020Among those to mention the late athlete on stage were DJ Khaled, while Lizzo said in her acceptance speech: “I want to say, this whole week I have been lost in my problems. Stressed out.
“And then in an instant all that can go away – all of that can shift. All of my little problems that I thought were as big as the world were gone and I realised there are people who are hurting right now.”
Lil Nas X also featured a basketball jersey featuring the late sportsman’s name during his Old Town Road performance. 6. Lizzo’s show-stopping performance quite literally had it all 
We’re talking ballet, we’re talking a costume reveal, we’re talking a flute solo, all ending with the message: “Welcome to the Grammys, bitch. Bom bom bee tum bee tum tum tay.”
In case we haven’t made this clear... we love Lizzo.7. There was surprisingly little mention of the behind-the-scenes scandal that hit the Grammys this week 
The closest thing was when, during Alicia Keys’ “serenade”, she joked that it had been “a hell of a week”.
Alicia then launched into a parody of Lewis Capaldi’s Someone You Loved, during which she sang about the last 12 months in music, and also took a swipe at US president Donald Trump.8. Lewis’ reaction to hearing his song being parodied was kind of adorable, tooWe can’t be certain, but we think Lewis might have been excited to be at the Grammys. 9. Let’s talk about some of the performances, because Tyler, The Creator’s was actually insane  
Talk about unpredictable, this performance starts with Boyz II Men making their second appearance of the night, and ends with Tyler and a load of Igor lookalikes convulsing while the backdrop behind them shows a burning neighbourhood.
It’s not to everyone’s tastes, of course, but this was quite probably our performance of the night.10. The Rapper literally hurling himself to collect his first ever Grammy with his mum at his side was also quite the momentTyler The Creator Has That Best Rap Album speech #GRAMMYspic.twitter.com/rB3Ph4iFKq— M I C H U (@MichuEmenalo) January 27, 2020We also have the upmost respect for him for carrying on with his speech even when the producers tried to play him off.11. Not long after that, Usher’s tribute to Prince got a mixed reactionOn one hand, Usher delivered some stellar vocals and there were some amazing moves from FKA Twigs... but it would have been nice to have heard her on the microphone for a bit too.12. Ariana kicks off her rendition of 7 Rings with a quick blast from The Sound Of Music... 
But it didn’t take long before things took a turn that Dame Julie Andrews would probably not be replicating any time soon. 
Seriously, though, it was a brilliant number, and quite possibly the best TV performance Ariana Grande has ever done.13. ...and she got choked up when she gave a special shout out to her dadDuring the final verse of Thank U, Next, Ariana usually sings that on her wedding day she’ll be “holding hands with [her] mama” and “thanking [her] dad, ’cause she grew from the drama”.
For her Grammys performance, she changed the lyric to ”’cause he’s really awesome”, then briefly got a bit emosh. Both of her parents were actually with her on the red carpet, which made the shout-out extra special.14. But that wasn’t the most emotional performance of the night 
No, that distinction most certainly went to Demi Lovato, who became so choked up at the beginning of her performance – her first since her overdose in the summer of 2018 – that she had to briefly start again.
Still, her bravery and raw emotion won her huge praise, both from the Grammys audience and viewers watching along at home.  15. Billie Eilish allowed her voice do the talking 
We all know that Billie Eilish is very much the full package, and her energetic performance style, music videos and personality have been every bit as important to her success as her songwriting and vocal abilities.
The Grammys is the biggest opportunity she’s had to put on a huge spectacle of a performance, so we were impressed she chose to strip things back, instead going for a fairly low-key rendition of her track When The Party’s Over that put her voice in centre stage. 16. Ellen’s introduction for Lil Nas X was actually kind of perfectWhat do @TheEllenShow and @lilNasX have in common? An adorable smile, of course. #GRAMMYspic.twitter.com/PcgP2YeyQK— CBS (@CBS) January 27, 2020“Courageous, brave, groundbreaking, game-changing, adorable, the cutest smile... all words to describe me,” Ellen began, before highlighting how important Lil Nas X’s success has actually been, as an openly gay rapper and singer with a record-breaking number one single. 17. And Lil Nas X’s performance itself was also pretty special 
We’ve already touched on the sweet nod to Kobe Bryant, but Lil Nas X’s performance  really does deserve a mention of its own.
Not only was it ambitious and technically impressive – not to mention star-studded – it was also just tonnes of fun, providing a moment of unwavering joy during an otherwise heavy evening.18. Nipsey Hussle won not one but two posthumous Grammys 
There was also a performance in his honour from a group of his friends and peers, consisting of Meek Mill, John Legend and DJ Khaled.
The late rapper’s partner, Lauren London, and grandmother collected his first posthumous Grammy, in one of the night’s most tear-jerking moments. “Racks In The Middle” Feat. @RoddyRicch & @Hit_Boy wins for Best Rap Performance at the 2020 #GRAMMYsNipsey Hussle is now the first Rapper to win a Grammy Posthumously. Lauren London, Nipsey Hussle’s Grandmother, and family accept the award. #TMC 🏁 pic.twitter.com/FTgGsFfiml— TheHipHopGuru (@thhgurutv) January 27, 202019. We have come to expect greatness from Rosalía, and she delivered yet again  
The perfect mix of traditional and contemporary, and she gave us looks, and choreography, and she did the whole thing in Spanish. If you’re not already all over Rosalía, now is the time. 20. Billie Eilish sweeps the board, but admitted that she wasn’t actually rooting for herself to win Album Of The Year 
“Can I just say, I think Ariana deserved this,” Billie said, after collecting her Album Of The Year win. “Thank U, Next got me through some shit.”
To Ariana’s credit, she was not having it, and insisted the 18-year-old carry on with her acceptance speech.You might well have seen that Grammys night was a big one for Billie, winning in this year’s four main categories, but what you may not have realised was how significant this is.
Not only is she the youngest artist to ever be nominated for Album Of The Year, Song Of The Year, Record Of The Year and Best New Artist all at the same ceremony, she’s also one of only two artists to sweep the board completely, the last being Christopher Cross in 1981. 21.

Star Wars Director Says It's About Time A Woman Makes A Star Wars Movie
Jan 02, 2024
Oscar-winning documentary filmmaker Sharmeed Obaid-Chinoy is directing an upcoming Star Wars movie that brings back Daisy Ridley in the role of Rey. Obaid-Chinoy will become the first woman to direct a Star Wars film, dating back to the franchise's origins in the 1970s. Speaking about this, Obaid-Chinoy told CNN that she is "very thrilled" to make the movie and create something that is "very special.""We're in 2024 now, and I think it's about time we had a woman come forward to shape the story in a galaxy far, far away," she said.Obaid-Chinoy won Best Documentary, Short Subjects Academy Awards for Saving Face (2012) and A Girl in the River: The Price of Forgiveness (2015).In 2020, Lucasfilm boss Kathleen Kennedy told the BBC that a woman would eventually direct a Star Wars movie, saying that would "absolutely" happen, "without question." Victoria Mahoney was a second unit director on The Rise of Skywalker, but a woman has never claimed a top directing credit on a Star Wars movie.On the TV side of things, The Mandalorian has featured a number of female directors, including Deborah Chow and Bryce Dallas Howard. Chow went on to direct the Obi-Wan TV series, too.Another high-profile franchise that has never had a female director is James Bond. Producer Barbara Broccoli and Skyfall director Sam Mendes have both said they want to see a woman direct a future 007 film.As for Obaid-Chinoy's Star Wars movie, little is known about it apart from the fact that Ridley will come back to play Rey. It is expected that this film will be the first of the three new Star Wars films to come to theaters, possibly releasing in December 2025.According to a report, Peaky Blinders creator Steven Knight is writing the Rey movie, taking over for Damon Lindelof and Justin Britt-Gibson.

NBA Names Clare Akamanzi CEO Of NBA Africa
Jan 02, 2024 15:29
The NBA named Clare Akamanzi – an accomplished business executive and international trade and investment lawyer – as CEO of NBA Africa. Akamanzi will start her position on Jan. 23, 2024, and report to NBA Deputy Commissioner and Chief Operating Officer Mark Tatum. In this role, Akamanzi will oversee the NBA’s business and basketball development efforts in Africa and will be responsible for continuing to grow the popularity of basketball, the NBA and the Basketball Africa League (BAL) across the continent, including through grassroots basketball development, media distribution, corporate partnerships, and social responsibility initiatives that improve the livelihoods of African youth and families. For the last six and a half years, Akamanzi was CEO of Rwanda Development Board (RDB), where she spearheaded Rwanda’s economic development by enabling private sector growth. Under Akamanzi’s leadership, RDB implemented several business policy reforms and initiatives that led to significant investment and development for the country, including through partnerships with the BAL, Arsenal FC, Paris Saint-Germain FC, FC Bayern Munich and TIME Magazine, among others. “Clare’s business acumen, international experience and familiarity with basketball and the NBA make her the ideal executive to lead our business in Africa,” says Tatum. “NBA Africa and the Basketball Africa League are well-positioned for continued growth, and under Clare’s leadership we believe these initiatives will transform economies, communities and lives across the continent.” “I’ve seen firsthand how sports can positively impact businesses, families and communities in Africa, and the NBA and the BAL are a perfect example of that,” says Akamanzi. “The NBA has done an incredible job growing basketball and the economy around it across the continent, and I’m excited about the enormous opportunities ahead to build on that momentum.” Previously, Akamanzi was Chief Operating Officer of RDB and Head of Strategy and Policy Unit, Office of the President of the Republic of Rwanda. She has extensive international trade, business and diplomatic experience, having previously worked for the Rwandan Government at the World Trade Organization in Geneva, Switzerland and at the Rwandan Embassy in London, England. Akamanzi has worked or studied in seven different countries and holds an honorary LLD from Concordia University in Montreal, Canada, in recognition of her work in Rwanda. She earned a master’s degree in public administration from Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government in Cambridge, Massachusetts, where she was the recipient of three prestigious awards for academic excellence and distinguished contribution to the community: the Lucius N. Littauer Fellows Award, the Raymond & Josephine Vernon Award and the Robert Kennedy Public Service Award. In addition, Akamanzi holds a Master of Laws degree in international trade and investments from the University of Pretoria in South Africa, and a Bachelor of Laws degree from Makerere University in Kampala, Uganda. Akamanzi has served on several company boards, including the World Health Organization (WHO) Foundation, ECOBANK and Aviation, Travel and Logistics (ATL) company. She was recognized by Forbes as one of Africa’s Top 50 Powerful Women in 2020.
