Grammys enjoys biggest audience since 2014
Sunday’s Grammy Awards ceremony, which featured performances by Beyoncé, Adele, Bruno Mars and Chance the Rapper, grabbed the music awards show’s biggest TV audience since 2014, according to preliminary Nielsen ratings. The 59th annual Grammys drew 26.05 million viewers, a four per cent jump from last year (24.9 million), which was the smallest audience in seven years. The show also was up one per cent in adults 18to-49 and three per cent in adults 18to-34, two demographic groups prized by advertisers. Sunday’s show, which featured first-time host James Corden, had plenty of superstar power, with a muchpraised Beyoncé’s performance and big awards for Adele, who also drew attention by stopping and restarting a musical performance during a tribute to the late George Michael.
