Before the Oscars, Come the Hotel Grammy Parties
We're not so sure America really cares about big awards ceremonies anymore. Every year, the ratings seem to drop for the Emmy Awards, the Oscars, the Grammys and even the Super Bowl. But in Los Angeles, big events like these are the lifeline for area hotels.
We already knew that hotels were rolling out the red carpet for the Oscars but before the Oscars, comes the Grammys. And the younger hotels of LA will be seeing some Grammy action. People has the scoop on the parties like the EMI Publishing party that will take place at the just-opened SLS Hotel. (Awww, baby's first Grammy party!)
[N]ominees like Katy Perry and country heavyweights Lady Antebellum will party for a good cause at their UV Vodka-sponsored bash benefiting Stand Up For a Cure. Proceeds from an artist-autographed guitar auction go to the charity, a nonprofit that produces benefit concerts for lung cancer research and patient care.
Also seeing some action will be the W Hotel Westwood where Nelly is performing a set at the Whisky Blue bar and Akon will be holding his own sort of post-Grammy celebration here.
