With Just over 24 hours to go before the launch of this year’s Grammy Awards, the Local Organizing Committee has released the names of the nominees in twenty-four categories. In addition to those, categories five (5) new special segments have been added to recognize members of the community who are engaged in the fight for national and global recognition of LGBT Rights as Human Rights.
This year’s Grammys represent the 12th such staging of the event and is the longest currently running LGBT event and the only one of its kind on the island. Event organizer Spencer of Just Fine Promotions, has promised us that this year’s event will bring Hollywood to Jamaica and send it back with Swag.
In the upcoming weeks, Pink will be counting down to the Grammy’s brining you interviews with some of the nominees, a history of the Awards show itself and of course open voting on some of the Award Categories. Persons interested in attending the Awards show should note that it is A FORMAL EVENT. This means no jeans and no cut off foot pants. However, it does mean three piece suit with tie or bow tie, hair properly well groomed for the gentlemen and gowns and heels for the ladies.
