There is never a dull moment during Grammy weekend
As someone who loves music more than pretty much anything, it's so exciting to spend a packed three days in the company of people who share my passion. From MusiCares's gala to PEOPLE's annual pre-Grammy soiree and then to the show itself (among other brunches, meetings, parties and dinners in between), it was literally non-stop for 72 hours. But with the help of some champagne and a close friend, who is thankfully a hairdresser, the weekend went off without a hitch!
I had the chance to see some of the biggest acts in the industry perform in intimate settings, I met so many new people and had a great time catching up with some people I hadn't seen in a while. This weekend was definitely a personal awards season highlight for me and I've captured it all so you can experience it yourselves.
