Grammy 2022: How did the most important music awards fare?

It was not a bad year for grammys, but not an outstanding one either. In its 64th edition, the most important prizes in the music industry surpassed last year’s historical low in rating with a smaller increase, according to CBS in its preliminary figures.

Not counting views away from home, Grammys 2022 drew 8.93 million viewers in the United States on Sunday, April 3. CBS predicted in a note picked up by The Hollywood Reporter and other US media that is likely to reach a total audience of 9.6 million.

These numbers are above the 9.23 million recorded by the Recording Academy Awards in 2021, although there is still a long way to go to get close to what the ceremony did before the pandemic. Its slight rebound, moreover, occurs after the Oscars 2022 also registered a growth in its rating.

The The great winner of the 2022 Grammys was undoubtedly Jon Batiste, who managed to win five awards, including best album of the year. She was followed by pop star Olivia Rodrigo, who at 19 won three gramophones. The gala was also marked by a message from the Ukrainian president Volodímir Zelenski.
