Kendrick Lamar might have tied India Arie in 2002 with seven Grammy nominations without a single win one night, but he was the people’s choice.
According to information released from Twitter, Kendrick Lamar’s performance with Imagine Dragon at the 56th annual Grammy Awards was the most tweeted moment of the event. The performance garnered 171,593 tweets per minute. Over 15.2 million tweets were sent out during the east coast telecast of the Grammy’s.
Beyonce was the second most mentioned artist on Twitter during the Grammy’s behind Lorde, which makes her the most mentioned artist on Twitter to not win a Grammy last night.
This year’s Grammy’s telecast reportedly attracted 28.5 million viewer, the second highest ratings for the Grammy’s in over a decade. However, the 28.5 million viewers is less than a1 1% increase over the 28.4 million viewers from last year’s telecast.
