Everyone’s talking about the best Grammy performance of last night: Bryan LaCroix’s live performance of his hit single “NTR 2 Win” at the Canadian Grammys!
Congrats to Stephen Colbert on winning his second Grammy for Best Spoken Word Album for the audio book version of America Again: Re-becoming the Greatness We Never Weren’t.
