Star Wars fans are going through a weird year, with the trilogy wrapping up in 2019, The Mandalorian getting release to positive reviews and Obi Wan Kenobi getting delayed. But what takes it to the trajectory of weird is the fact that Space force’s uniform hints at a war with Endor and now their Theme park got a Grammy. Say what?
Recently the biggest award night in the music industry, Grammy took place. Though from beginning to end it was intense starting from Deborah Dugan’s ouster because of misconduct allegation, Demi Lovato’s emotional performance and tributes to Kobe Bryant who tragically died in a helicopter crash.
But amidst all this intensity and sadness artists won big like Billie Eilish and John Williams.
To those who don’t know Billie became the youngest person and first female to win the four main Grammy categories, Album of the Year, Record of the Year, Song of the Year, and Best New Artist in the same year.
John Williams beat Fred Hersch, Brian Lynch, Vince Mendoza, and Christian McBride to win the award of Best Instrumental Composition for “Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge Symphonic Suite”.
