On music’s biggest night, some of our hometown favorites shined brightest. At last night’s Grammy Awards, Usher took home the award for Best R&B Male Vocal Performance, and joined his protégé, Justin Bieber, on stage for a special performance. Both singers wowed crowds at Philips Arena back in December and last night’s show was no different. Another Georgia native, Cee Lo Green, rocked the stage performing his hit “Forget You” with the help of Gwyneth Paltrow. Lady Antebellum, with Augusta natives Charles Kelley and Dave Haywood, also gave Georgia reason to cheer as one of the biggest winners of the night, winning the awards for Record and Song of the Year for their hit “Need You Now”.
Congratulations to all of this year’s winners!
