Katy Perry performs on the 57th Annual GRAMMY Awards on Feb. 8 in Los Angeles
(The following is a transcript of Recording Academy President/CEO Neil Portnow's remarks on the 57th GRAMMY Awards telecast. Portnow was joined by GRAMMY winners Jennifer Hudson and Ryan Tedder.)
Neil Portnow: What if we're all watching the GRAMMYs a few years from now, and there's no Best New Artist award because there aren't enough talented artists or songwriters who are actually able to make a living from their craft? Could that really happen? Or more importantly, could any of us ever let that happen?
