Billboard has put together this graphic comparing TV viewers and tweets sent based on what was happening during the Grammys. Click here for a high-resolution image.
Billboard also has some interesting stats about the various performers from that night. For example
- Despite the length of the show, it was the second-highest-rated Grammy telecast of the last 21 years.
- Taylor Swift’s “All Too Well” increased in sales by 3,280% following her headbanging performance.
- The most-rewatched portions on PVRs were P!nk’s Cirque du Soleil act and Chicago’s medley of hits with Robin Thicke. Paul and Ringo didn’t even make the top five.
Keep going and you’ll understand why the Grammys are the way they are. Hardcore music fans may despise the show, but we’re far, far outnumbered by people who like this stuff.
