"Across the board - online, mobile and social - we saw huge increases in the interaction people had with this year's GRAMMY Awards," said Evan Greene, Chief Marketing Officer for The Recording Academy. "We're thrilled that our efforts to engage people in the show paid off both in terms of how much activity we saw across all the interactive platforms, as well as the GRAMMY's telecast's significantly increased viewership."
