Google Music, T-Mobile and Red Light Management went high into the Hollywood Hills to celebrate the Grammy Awards on Sunday, taking over a glass-walled mansion with jetliner views of the city below. As most guests shuttled up in minibuses, Herbie Hancock arrived in limo style to check out the live music perfs.
Alt rockers Switchfoot rocked a set, but what really made people take notice was the late arrival of Corinne Bailey Rae, who left her Grammy prize behind, along with her party dress. She’d dressed down to skinny slacks and a pretty sweater, and gushed that her win was “a great surprise.”
Jim James and his My Morning Jacket bandmates lost out to Bon Iver earlier, but were in top spirits, hanging out in the backyard tent. Mark Salling wandered though, perhaps looking for skateboard legend Tony Hawk, who was checking out all the T-Mobile kiosks. And “American Idol” runner-up Haley Reinhart revealed that her first single is going to drop in March.
