A Grammy Award (originally called Gramophone Award), or Grammy, is an honour awarded by The Recording Academy to recognise outstanding achievement in the mainly English-language music industry. The annual presentation ceremony features performances by prominent artists and the presentation of those awards that have a more popular interest. It shares recognition of the music industry as that of the other performance awards such as the Emmy Awards (television), the Tony Awards (stage performance), and the Academy Awards (motion pictures).
The first Grammy Awards ceremony was held on May 4, 1959, to honour the musical accomplishments by performers for the year 1958. Following the 2011 ceremony, The Academy overhauled many Grammy Award categories for 2012. The 58th Grammy Awards were held on February 15, 2016, at the Staples Center in Los Angeles.
