We’re All Fans of GRAMMY Getting Social < Live Streaming

The GRAMMYs on MySpace Music - Free Streaming MP3s, Pictures & Music Downloads
This year’s GRAMMY Awards will not only look and sound great in your Home Theater but following the recent trend of streaming pre-awards show festivities and backstage access, you may notice some special guests on the red carpet Sunday January 31st, 2010.  In addition to nominees and presenters, “leaders of a number of social media platforms will attend the 52nd Annual GRAMMY Awards.”   Social Entrepreneurs scheduled to appear:

  • Pete Cashmore, CEO/founder of Mashable
  • MySpace CEO Owen Van Etta
  • YouTube co-founder Chad Hurley
  • Digg founder Kevin Rose
  • Twitter founders Evan Williams and Biz Stone
  • Tumblr founder David Karp

The reason these social media giants were extended tickets to the GRAMMY show, including the prestigious walk down the red carpet, is that most of those companies will be represented at the Recording Academy’s special summit on social media Friday January 29th.

The summit was inspired by the fact that, for the first time in its history, The Recording Academy is building much of its 52nd GRAMMY Awards media campaign around digital and social media platforms. The organization launched a FanBuzz Visualizer (a real-time barometer of GRAMMY-nominated artists with the most social media buzz) and has spearheaded its telecast awareness with the ”We’re All Fans” campaign — which harnesses the power of social media and its unique ability to directly connect fans and artists.

While the FanBuzz is a great visualizer, it really pales in comparison to We’re All Fans.  Here’s what Amy Corr wrote a few weeks ago:

The Recording Academy unveiled a great ad campaign for the 52nd Annual GRAMMY Awards, airing Jan. 31 on CBS. “We’re All Fans” features fans’ postings from YouTube, Twitter, Flickr and Facebook that pay homage to favorite musicians. Traditional components drive traffic to a Web site that’s updated in real time with postings on GRAMMY-nominated artists. One TV ad is a collage of LL Cool J fans uploading videos of themselves lip-synching lyrics to “Rock the Bells,” and tweets from fans and the rapper himself. Watch it here. I expected the song used throughout Lady Gaga’s TV spot to be “Paparazzi,” since it contains lyrics such as “I’m your biggest fan.” But I was wrong. “Poker Face” is used instead. I like the ad’s ending with fans belting out song lyrics. See it here. Print and outdoor ads create a collage of tweets and YouTube videos of the five artists nominated for Album Of The Year — Beyoncé, the Black Eyed Peas, Lady Gaga, Dave Matthews Band, and Taylor Swift. See the ads here, here, here, here and here, created by TBWA/Chiat/Day Los Angeles.
