Screening the GRAMMY Awards®: How to Make It Perfect


By Megan Koester

The GRAMMY Awards® are just around the corner, and you want to watch the televised award ceremony the way it was intended—with your closest friends.

If you’re ready to throw an epic bash, it’s time to turn your home into the perfect screening area for the GRAMMY Awards®. After all, you don’t want to throw that party. You know, that party? The one where you can’t hear the TV, the lighting’s horrible, and the food is awful (or worse, nonexistent!)? Everyone has been to that party at some point.

However, by sparing no expense and surrounding your friends in glamorous luxury, you can make your living room feel just like a front-row seat at the ceremony. Here’s what you’ll need:

The Perfect TV

If you want to create the perfect screening area for the GRAMMYs, you’ve got to start from the television up. The 55″ 4K Ultra HD Curved Smart OLED TV by LG offers unmatched picture quality, which boasts super vivid images and vibrant, natural clarity. Its ultra slim, curved body makes it feel like a window directly to the show, providing everyone with the best seat in the house—making your enjoyment of the live performances more immersive. It will truly feel like you and your guests are VIP! (No backstage credentials required.)

A Killer Sound System

As a music fan, you’re all about that bass—and that treble. With its wall-mountable, wireless soundbar and subwoofer, the JBL Cinema SB400 will fill your living room with rich surround sound. The system is Bluetooth compatible, and while it may appear small, it definitely packs a punch, courtesy of the sleek but powerful subwoofer.

Mood Lighting

When it comes to filming a televised award ceremony, lighting is everything. Make your house feel like a hot set with the Hue White and Color Ambiance Bulb Starter Kit by Philips. You’ll be able to dim the lights, change their colors and even sync them to the music, turning your entire living room into a dance floor.

The package comes complete with the Philips Hue bridge, which lets you control up to 50 different bulbs from your tablet or smartphone. Additionally, it works with Amazon Echo and Apple Home—making it possible to ask Alexa or Siri to dim the lights for you.

No-Effort Nosh Options

You’ve got enough on your mind—don’t worry about the refreshments! Pick up an assortment of catered sandwiches and party platters from FreshDirect the day of the ceremony. You’ll soak up compliments from your happy guests instead of soaking dishes.

Aromatic Ambiance

When it comes to creating a vibe, ambiance is essential, and nothing says “ambiance” more than scented candles. Giving a nod to Beyonce’s sixth album “Lemonade,” you can fill your home with the sweet scent of Agaria’s Lemon Verbena AirEssence

Place one in the restroom, one in the kitchen, one in the living room, and one in the hallway to infuse your entire house with the delicious citrus aroma. They look great, too, making your perfect screening area for the Grammys all the more perfect.

Experience the GRAMMY Awards® in true high definition! The 49'' super slim 4K Smart LED TV by LG features HDR Pro, which makes for incredibly vivid images and vibrant, natural clarity. Click here to scope it out on Newegg!
