academyawards-2015-thatgrapejuice

For all of the tweet-worthy moments over its lengthy 3.5 hour airtime (see: emotional speeches, off-color commentary, jaw-dropping live performances courtesy of Jennifer Hudson, John Legend & Lady Gaga), the day after the  87th annual Academy Awards is finding the show lining tweets for another reason – a severe drop in ratings.

The Neil Patrick Harris-hosted affair, which aired February 22 on ABC, not only brought with it a 17% drop in viewers from last year’s showing, but also reigns as the ceremony’s lowest ratings tally this decade.

The 87th Annual Academy Awards may be flooding Twitter timelines for its host of memorable quotes (i.e. “honoring the best & whitest,”), red carpet slayage, and trophy wins and snubs, but its most talked about moments may have just come courtesy of its music performances.

As if Rita Ora didn’t rock the stage enough with her amazing live showing of ‘Grateful,’ found aboard the ‘Beyond the Lights’ soundtrack, Grammy winners Common, John Legend and Jennifer Hudson hit the Dolby Theatre stage to perform stunning renditions of songs from some of this year’s nominated films and more.

Beyonce & Lady Gaga Led ‘Stevie Wonder Tribute’ A Moderate Ratings Draw Despite All-Star Lineup

beyonce-thatgrapejuice-stevie wonder

Not even the combined powers of music super divas Beyonce, Lady Gaga, and Jennifer Hudson were enough to shift killer ratings for the second installment of the ‘Grammy tribute’ series – this time paying homage the academy’s most decorated artist Stevie Wonder.

Airing February 15th on CBS, the showing – a critics top pick -  did manage to draw a respectable viewing audience, but still nearly less than half of last year’s episode in honor of the Beatles (which drew a whopping 13.95 million viewers).  The numbers are all the more disappointing as, unlike the Beatles tribute, Wonder’s installment had little competition elsewhere on television.

But, as reports below reveal, all was not lost.  For, after the likes of Pharrell Williams, Ariana Grande, Janelle Monae, John Legend, and Ed Sheeran put their ever modern twists on Wonder’s classic hits, interest in the 70s & 80s numbers found itself skyrocketing on top sites Spotify and Shazam.

Did You Miss It? John Legend Backtracks On Defense Of Kanye West

thatgrapejuice-john legend-kanyew

The 2015 Grammys are three days in our rearview, yet headlines are still dominated with debate on Beck, Beyonce, and, of course, the controversial statements of Kanye West.

As reported here, after the ‘Heartless’ hitmaker suggested that Beck, winner of 2015 Grammy ‘Album of the Year,’ “respect artistry” and relinquish his award to Bey, he’s been on the receiving end of unceremonious slam from fans and fellow artists (see:  Shirley Manson, Michael McDonald, KISS, Nikki Six, and more).

Coming to the rescue of his former mentor and longtime collaborator, Grammy winner John Legend took to US Weekly to defend West from the onslaught of criticism.  But, after his quote found him on the receiving end as well, the ‘Green Light’ singer took to Instagram to clear up the confusion.
