A Grammy Award is an honor by the United States National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences to identify exceptional accomplishments in the song industry. The award was at first called the Gramophone Award, is a yearly awarding ceremony that features concerts by famous artists, and the awarding of Grammy Awards that have a more admired interest. The Grammy Award shares acknowledgment of the melody industry as that of the other concert arts, such as the Tony Awards for stage presentation, the Emmy Awards for television, and the Academy Awards for action movies.
The first ceremony of the Grammy Awards was held on the 4th of May 1959 to respect the musical achievements by artists for the year 1958. Subsequent to the 2011 observance, the United States National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences overhauled several categories of the Grammy Award for the year 2012. The 56th ceremony of Grammy Awards was held at the California Staples Center in Los Angeles on the 26th of January 2014.
The origin of the Grammy Awards had started in the Hollywood Walk of Fame plan during the 1950s. While the recording directors selected for the Walk of Fame team worked at collecting a list of significant recording industry artists who might meet the criteria for a Walk of Fame celebrity, they recognized there were a lot more people who were innovators in their trade who would earn a star in no way on Hollywood Boulevard. The music directors decided to set right this by generating an award, presented by their industry, resembling the Emmys and the Oscars. This was the commencement of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences award. After it was determined to generate such an award, there was still a difficulty on what to name it. One working name was the Eddie, to respect Thomas Edison, the discoverer of the phonograph. Finally, they settled on exploiting the name of a German-instinctive American discoverer of the gramophone, Emile Berliner, for the awards that were first presented for the year 1958.
Trophy of the Grammy award
Each trophy of Grammy award is gold-plated that depicts a gilded gramophone. These trophies were made and assembled manually by Billings Artworks in Ridgway in Colorado. The original design of the Grammy was refurbished during 1990 by changing the conventional soft lead into a sturdier alloy less liable to damage, making the trophy grander and bigger. The Grammy trophies were engraved with the name of the recipient on them are not accessible, until following the announcements of the award, so "stunt" trophies are re-employed every year for the relay. A total of 7,578 Grammy trophies had been presented as of February 2009.
