Shure continued its long track record at the Grammy’s with the majority of the 63rd Grammy Award’s 23 musical productions relying on Shure’s Axient Digital Wireless System and Microphones. Some of the mics themselves were even decked out to match their star-studded performers with Best Pop Vocal Album winner, Dua Lipa, sporting a blinged-out pink Axient Digital KSM9 Handheld Microphone while DaBaby joined her with a nickel Axient Digital KSM8 Handheld Microphone.
Broadcast outdoors on the grounds of the Los Angeles Convention Center, the audience-free show was hosted by Trevor Noah who donned an Axient Digital SM58 Handheld Microphone as he entertained and welcomed the select artists who were on-hand to accept the awards. With Noah’s SM58 set to frequency diversity mode, high quality audio could be achieved even in the difficult RF environment of downtown LA.
Mickey Guyton, who made history as the first Black woman to be nominated as a solo country artist, sang “Black Like Me” with an Axient Digital KSM9Handheld Microphone. An Axient Digital SM58 was used by Megan Thee Stallion for her rendition of “Body” and Grammy winning “Savage.” She was later joined on stage by Cardi B, who shared her musical talents using a Shure TwinPlex Headset Microphone paired with the easily concealable Axient Digital Micro Bodypack Transmitter.
Paying tribute to music icons that were lost this year, Bruno Mars (Super 55) and Anderson Paak celebrated Little Richard, Lionel Richie (SM58) honored Kenny Rogers, Chris Martin (SM58) and Brittany Howard (SM58) recognized Gerry Marsden, and Brandi Carlile paid tribute to John Prine, one of the artists lost in 2020 to the coronavirus.
