Malificent Trailer Wins Grammys

Daft Punk got to wear stormtrooper helmets for their performance… sort of, maybe? Just the sound check. (via THR/Johnamarie Macias or The Wookie Gunner).

The standout moment was Disney’s Malificent trailer featuring “Once Upon a Dream” reimagined by Lana Del Rey.

Just a reminder: My book Wynde is out now and here are all the things you can do to support it. Grammy-nominated songs P!NK’s “Just Give Me a Reason” and Bruno Mars’ “Locked Out of Heaven” were featured on yesterday’s awards broadcast.
