Norah Jones Ruled Grammy Night

Norah Jones (pictured) won big at last night’s Grammy Awards ceremony held in New York City, claiming five trophies, including those for Record of the Year (for “Don’t Know Why”), Album of the Year (for Come Away With Me) and Best New Artist. Jones also beat Britney Spears, Sheryl Crow, Pink and Avril Lavigne to win Best Female Pop Vocal Performance (again for “Don’t Know Why”), and the LP received another award for Best Pop Vocal Album. Songwriter Jesse Harris, who wrote “Don’t Know Why,” won for Song of the Year. The album also garnered an award for Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical and its producer, Arif Mardin, won for Producer Of The Year, Non-Classical. The folks at Blue Note Records (Jones’ label) are likely still partying as you read this.
