Grammy 2013

Posted by The New N Used Link Team on Tuesday, February 12, 2013 Under: Business

A total of 28.1 million Americans watched this year's broadcast, although the figure was down 30% on last year. The 2012 ceremony, in which stars paid tribute to Whitney Houston, who had died a day earlier, won a US television audience of 39.9 million. Sunday's show saw awards for Adele, The Black Keys, Fun and Gotye, with the coveted album of the year prize going to British band Mumford and Sons.

The Grammys TV audience has risen steadily since organisers decided to focus on performances over speeches. It now outpaces the Emmys and Golden Globes, but comes second to the Oscars, which traditionally scores an audience of more than 30 million. All of the awards shows are dwarfed by the Super Bowl, however. Beyonce's recent half-time performance was seen by 108 million people in America alone, with the peak audience of 164.1 million for the match itself.
