The 57th Annual Grammy Awards

So the prestigious awards for Hollywood actors and actresses just passed few months ago at The Oscar, now it's the time for the most prestigious night for talented artists or we may call performers/ singers to be honored on February 8th, 2015 at The 57th Annual Grammy Awards. The 2015 Grammys was held at Staples Center, Los Angeles with many A-list celebrities attending the red carpet and the after-party, starting from pop, rock singers, to reality show stars like The Kardashians.
This year's Grammys had more performances than awards being given on stage.
As I expected and loved to hear that Sam Smith won most of the awards for the night, bringing 4 Grammys awards home. To see the list of winners for the night, go here.
Even though, this year T-Swift was not the one who brought the most trophies home (like she used to for many years on different award shows), I would still vote her to have the best style or dress for the night. She was spotted wearing a blue-green sleeveless long gown from Elie Saab, which has an opening on the middle parts that made her legs even look longer :) Bottom line, I think she's simply gorgeous on that night despite what people say about the dress.



















Seems like Tay-Tay shake off any hard feelings for Kanye this year. I love seeing this picture :)

Sam Smith Live on The Forum 2015

Last night I had the chance to see one of my favorite artist performs alive on stage. Like no other, Sam Smith, can wrote a song and brings it to live emotionally to the audience. His words and lyrics of the songs are so deep that few people would cry just by seeing him perform. I can definitely suggest that this is also one of my favorite concert that I have been to thus far apart from watching the power couple, Beyonce and Jay Z performed on stage together last year for "On The Run Tour."
Last night was a lay down concert with a few orchestra playing in between. Smith also lightened up the audience's spirit by asking us to sing and dance along to some of his up-tempo rhythm songs. Just by seeing him live and listening to every words that came out of his mouth was all I need to hear and experience last night. I'm really into words and poetries so imagine that I could see that out of a person in real life. Along with that, Smith also gave us few stories and reasons of why he wrote specific songs, which makes every song even more emotional to him and to the audience who can feel the same way. I know I'm not the only one to experience these feelings, once you've seen some of the videos I've uploaded :)

Enjoy...

The 72nd Golden Globe Awards (2015) Recap

So once again, the talented Hollywood actors and actresses gathered on a Sunday night inside Beverly Hilton Hotel in Beverly Hills for the most prestigious awards show of the night, The 72nd Annual of Golden Globe Awards. The awards was again opened by the humorous duo; Tina Fey and Amy Poehler. In my opinion, this year's dresses are not that "fancy" as what most viewers would expect it to be. Most of the talents opted out for a more simple, yet fabolous looks with some jewel-studs as accessories.
For the list of the winners from last night's Golden Globes, go here.
Here are some of the red carpet looks at The 72nd Golden Globe Awards:

It isn't Hollywood, without having an after-party following another eminent event. Taylor Swift, spotted on her bright yellow dress, made a headline enjoying the after party with her A-list stars of BFFS including, Lorde, Este Haim, Selena Gomez, and Lena Dunham. Other TV stars, talents, and performers were also spotted blasting in the after-party of 2015 Golden Globes.

American Music Awards 2014

Been to American Music Awards for the last 2 years, but not this year... Just spending my first day off of the week, watching it from TV and I am loving it already! Taylor Swift first opened the show with her entertaining choreographic acts on stage while singing "Blank Space." Her night was also rewarded by the legendary Diana Ross with the Dick Clark Award of Excellence. Tay-Tay must have felt like on top of the world for all her remarkable achievements at the age of 24.

Bravo to her best friend, Selena Gomez, who delivered a heart-felt performance of her newest single, "The Heart Wants What It Wants," which later on shed tears to Taylor Swift at the end.
Another heartbroken song performed by Sam Smith who understands well how it feels to be lonely.

Lots of energetic and passionate performances on #AMAs 2014, so it's worth watching!
